It’s been a while since we’ve featured a nice durable backpack here on inStash, so what better day than the present to start back with the Synapse 25 from Tom Bihn. This bag is designed for light travel with a liberal stash of pockets for all your gear of varying shapes and sizes. There are five zippered pockets on the front and a top center front pocket that is deep enough for a one-liter water bottle.
But even as the various compartments house room for your keys, wallet, glove liner, or small camera, the back pocket is deep enough for books and writing utensils. All combined, you can fit pretty much anything you see in the picture inside the bag without compromising quality.
