In the end, whether or not you think the Tom Bihn is worth the premium price tag is up to you. But on the performance side, it certainly delivers. Great organization and very sturdy. For my uses, the 25L may be the better option and I honestly don’t think I needed to buy the Cache.

The Tom Bihn Synapse is a high quality, hand made, U.S. built daypack that will undoubtedly stand up to whatever I throw at it and continue to accompany me on my various adventures to come.

It’s well-built, thoughtfully-organized and has many more pockets that most bag in its size range. Coupled with Tom Bihn’s add-ons, it can become a great laptop bag, weekend bag or school bag easily and quickly. If you want a backpack, but don’t need something as big as the Smart Alec or GR1, it’s well worth checking out.

The Tom Bihn Synapse 25 is a great backpack. It is lightweight, has useful organizational features, and is made in USA with high-quality materials and construction. Its ergonomically-contoured shoulder straps and low-profile, back-hugging design make it comfortable to wear.

If you are looking for a bookbag, a day pack, or even a diaper bag that you can use for something else later, look no further.
