Updates to the Brain Bag (and Smart Alec and Synapse)

We’ve added a heavy-duty clip to the front of the Brain Bag, just under the top-most zippered pouch. It’s a handy spot to clip a water bottle, umbrella or even an insulated coffee mug. Because it has a low profile, it’s not in the way when you’re not using it.

We’ve also added a hydration tube clip to all three backpacks: the Brain Bag, the Smart Alec and the Synapse. If you use any of these bags for hiking or cycling, you’ll appreciate the ability to keep the business end of your hydration system conveniently attached to the shoulder strap. It works with most of the popular hydration sacks and fits tubes up to 3/8″ or 10mm. It attaches to the vertical sternum strap adjustment strap on the shoulder straps, and is easily removable if you don’t need it, or if you just want to move it to the opposite strap.
