Sindrome got his name through suffering from middle child sindrome. Yes, he is the poor bag stuck in the middle of the range. Not as cute as his baby brother Papermunky; nor as fully grown as his older brother Elephantitus who has already developed a 2nd shoulder strap. But Sindrome is still fully capable of hauling a serious load; just not as much as his stronger, bigger bro. That being said, Sindrome is popular due to his functional size and full range of cycling features. The girls don't like him much yet - but just you wait.
Commute regularly, yet feel like a part time messenger with the amount of gear you have to haul around? Then the Sindrome messenger bag is built for you. Designed to haul all your daily gear, while still being a manageable size when empty. It's 32.5L volume can fit A3 folders, swallows a carton of Bundy stubbies all with room to spare for a goon sack. The padded strap is also removable so no matter how much you sweat carrying a heavy load, you can still get it smelling fresh as a daisy.
Sometimes you have to carry a lot of gear to uni, which is where the Sindrome comes into a league of its own. The main compartment tub is sized around A3 folders, complete with two A5 sized pockets on the inside front wall. The biggest pocket on the bag is on the outside front face of the bag, and is pleated which means that no matter how full you fill it, it will not affect your main tub volume. What this also means is if you do pick up a carton of beer on the way home your personal belongings will not be accidentally crushed!
This front pleated pocket is big enough to easily fit two phone books (should you find the need!) and has a shelf pocket for keys and wallet, as well as dedicated pen pockets and a slash pocket for your phone. Our D-lock sleeve is standard which means the D-lock is no longer is inside your main compartment or pocket crushing your valuable personal belongings. Oh, and a secret pocket is standard!
What you can't manage to fit inside the main tub or in the front pleated pocket can easily be strapped down to the bag by using all the clipping points. There are some on the pleated pocket flap which are perfect for poster tubes (use our rigging straps to hold it down), while others lower on the bag mean your blinky light will always be seen. If for some ridiculous reason you feel the need to carry a frame home from the local bike shop, then rest assured the Sindrome clipping points make this possible!
Despite its smaller appearance, you can easily see that the Sindrome messenger bag carries a lot! Even when fully loaded, it is not uncomfortable as a padded and tapered shoulder strap is standard. The taper in the pad means it wont dig uncomfortably into your neck. The main straps themselves have hip and shoulder compression, which allow the bag to expand away from your back when full. No more carrying a lot of gear and feeling like you have a barrel on your back! Needless to say, the bag wont sway across your back as a stabiliser strap is standard.
