    Today I am reviewing the Tom Bihn Synapse Backpack. I've had this bag now about four or so weeks. I picked it up because I wanted something that offered more space than my 5.11 Covrt ZAP6, still "low-key" looking and something smaller than my Maxpedition Condor 2. This Synapse backpack sounded like a great bag to check out. Immediately after opening the box it was shipped in I said to myself "this is a pretty sweet bag". It has very sleek lines, lots of storage areas, and it "fits in" with regular backpackers when your out doing day-to-day stuff.

    The exterior of the Synapse backpack is constructed using a lightweight but tough 1000 denier Cordura® nylon fabric and YKK Aquaguard® water-repellent zippers. I haven't submerged this bag in water but I did spray it with the hose and everything inside the bag was nice and dry.
