    Just tested this for you: it will fit in the main compartment great, but it won't fit in the pocket within the main compartment.

    So I had the day, off and since I got a few new pieces of gear, I decided to reorganize a little. And since I had a few pockets empty I thought I'd try to take a few better pics of them...
    Right side pocket empty:

    Here I've loaded my Repair Tin (about the same size as an Altoids tin, just full of repair materials); a Folca Pill case, a Monocular, and a Lock Pick set all in the main pocket. A Bic lighter and a tube of Lip stuff in the side admin pocket. Then I put my little Hand Sanitizer on the new 14" Accessory Strap...When I need to get some I can with out having to hold the gel in one hand, while I fight to put the bottle back in the pocket with the other.

    The right side pocket empty, almost...A few pens, an inspection mirror, and an Opinel knife.

    I keep my spare keys, along with a couple of keychain tools on a short Accessory Strap, dropped inside the main part with my 3x5 memo pad and business card case.

    I replaced my small Otter Box of chargers and electronic stuff with the larger Otter Box.
    Here it is in the bottom pocket. Notice how much room is left on top of it. Enough for another Otter Box.

    Thanks for the quick answer. I just ordered me a black synapse and an iPad to fill it with! It's back ordered but looks like it'll be worth the wait.

    I am thinking I want one of these (in addition to the laptop bag) to use when I want to switch from my Rush 12. Looks like it could hold a full 12's stuff :)

    ...How have I not thought to use the EDCF keychain as a means to suspend a bunch of smaller tools that can be easily removed inside of a bag before? Man. I feel like a dolt. I used to have one of those keychains, but stopped using it and it got lost because it was a touch too bulky for me and I didn't need the quick release.

    I've decided to get a synapse if and when I go back to school. I almost want to find a way back into school just to have an excuse to buy a synapse. :D

    Quilted sweatshirt, wind breaker, beanie, iPad, 28 oz. Kleen kanteen, paperback, toiletries kit, radio. This was just a test. I've only had it for 20 minutes, but I'm really impressed at how much it holds.

    UPS just dropped off a 3D Mesh Organizer Cube. Going to use it to hold cables/chargers in the bottom pocket. Fits in there really nice. Photo tomorrow because I'm feeling REALLY lazy tonight.

    I am still waiting for my steel dyneema with wasabi interior Synapse. I keep hoping it will ship early.

    I'm just not sure if I need a pocket in the middle for a water bottle. I'm not sure what else I would keep in there, either. :confused:

    There is a good video on the Bihn site, on the Synapse page. The person has a tripod and other misc stuff in that pocket.
