Tom Bihn Synapse 19: Minimalist Lives out of a 19 Liter Pack (Simple Living and Travel)

I live out of the Tom Bihn Synapse 19 and I am totally in love with this 19Liter pack. It is not a new love affair- it started a couple years ago when I first saw this bag and has steadily increased over time. Since I started living out of this pack a couple months ago my life has felt simpler, more organized, and more luxurious.

In this video I share with you with you what is in my bag, what I let go of in order to downsize from a 28L to a 19L pack, and what I love about this bag.

Here’s a list of everything in my pack:
1 double-sided packing cube (Eagle Creek ½ size)
All my clothes (see clothing video for details:
1 towel or sarrong
1 pair xero shoes sandals (cloud)
Smartphone (iphone 5c)
Ereader (Sony)
Laptop (Macbook Air 13”)
Bag of electronics, cables, accessories (external hard drive, chargers, Rode Microphone, microfiber cloth, JBL clip external speakers, lighter, padlock)
Wallet (Sherpani- passport, ID, cards, money)
2 reusable stuff sack bags (Chico)
1 utility knife
1 pair chopsticks
1 spoon
1 flexy cutting board
1 pen (4 colored tips)
Liquid Chalk
Athletic Tape
Eye Mask
Ear Plugs
