The slings are padded but not as much as the other backpack (which is bigger and thus capable of more weight). But they are prettier, with the Vic logo and two straps to hang your sunglasses (or clipped knife but that's scarry for people) and two D rings for a carabiner or something like that.
The backpack has reinforcements that help it stay upright, regardless if it's empty or loaded.
The back is padded and with provision for airflow. The handle is leather padded.

This is the Wenger Gigabyte 15 MacBook Pro I tried and considered buying instead.
I liked it a lot. It has a Dual compartment, Padded laptop compartment with anti-scratch lining (very very nice at touch),  Interior pocket for iPad (very nice too),  a Case base stabiliser platform (different from Vic's),  Padded back panel too, Shock absorbing shoulder straps of nice design, Lockable zipper pulls,  Cable haul handle (impressive), Full organisation panel (bis), Quick access pocket like that on my Trevi (addictive),  Zippered water bottle pocket too, Integrated trolley pass-through where you can hide the straps.
In many ways it is better than the one I have but I can always find an excuse to get this also, I am an MTO member, remember?

Actually, they are not a collection since they are used a lot. My wife has, I don't know, 100, 200, 300 bags? Probably 366, one for each day and one of them is used every 4 years. So it seems rational to have 2-3 bags of Victorinox/Wenger quality. I choose them black to go with anything, from formal suit to outdoors outfit.

I discovered which model is my new backpack. It is called WT Digital Backpack and goes for 170 euros here. A nice buy at 70 euros, totally unused.

I carried the wrench this way for several months and it proved useful a couple of times but it was a hassle to put it and remove it from bag to bag because the wrench's tip was catching somewhere.
Today I received my Pocketwrench II which is a beauty and slips beautifully inside the Skinth, so the earlier adjustable wrench will live in the car or somewhere.

Since acquiring my Skinth over 6 months ago I wanted a Crunch and a one piece tool to feel completed. As I said I used an adjustable wrench that did the job but wouldn't fit inside as I felt it should. Finally I've completed the load out and everything is perfect.
On the outside nothing seems different, although I made some changes and now the Skinth is slimmer. Don't throw tomatoes please but the full setup weights 1.85kgr!



Inside, the Crunch fits perfectly (on the left). I now have the Opinel in my pocket or in the quick access pocket of my bag as before (it is more convenient since that's what I use in the office and everywhere) and on the right of the XLT I put the BiC,  Victorinox Dual Sharpener and Diamond Sharpener (fits in a groove of the Pentapocket besides the Minimaglite). The Pocketwrench II is on the right, in the narrow pocket behind the Charge/Surge. There's also a pair of tweezers on the back right. It is useful also for picking up small stuff from the bottom of the Skinth. To compensate for the added tools, I exchanged the leather wallet with a nylon one (in Blue European Union colors) that fits exactly the same stuff. Complete.



It is insane but this small Skinth is loaded with 4 big tools inside and a large Spyderco Endura on the outside, while even the Swisstool and Surge can take the place of the 4" tools.



The "new" factor didn't wore off and I always feel excited when I take out and open my Skinth to do a job. I'm going to help my daughter moving to another house and I will exchange the Charge for the Surge probably for the occasion but all the rest are perfectly chosen.

Some items might seem irrelevant but everything comes from personal experience and it showed today, when my Sectro Expander wristband loop broke. It is plastic and it broke in the corner, so there isn't a way to fix it on the go. I just removed the black rubber band from the front flap tongue, over the aluminum ring I added and used that in it's place. It was very annoying when I typed on my PC and now it works fine. Wire, paperclips, bookmarks, rubberbands, they all permit such quick fixes and that's why they have a place in my Skinth.

It's not everything I own, the Skinth is not a bucket, I play with my toys everyday and need them every now and then because I establish treatment units around the country and have many hobbies. Do you know how many different types of screws one encounters in just one telescope (on the spider, tube, focuser, mount and tripod)? Also, I am the "man with the SAK" in the house and my job and everyone comes to me for fixing things, not that I don't enjoy it. I wouldn't say it is well thought but it was much thought and I enjoyed every bit of thought because it was a kind of delightful game for me. And I post it here because it is established that similarly infected people frequent this forum and they enjoy to see Skinth loadouts, up to their limits. Am I wrong?

Am I wrong?

Not at all, I'm just teasing.

I'm a little jealous that you've come up with an EDC that works for you, actually.  I currently own 20-something SAKs and knives and 10 or 12 multis of some description and I can't settle on one particular group of things to carry day in day out.  I don't want to carry too much as I don't want a giant sheath or a bag full of metal and I want what I carry to be useful with little or no redundancy.  I change my mind about what I want to carry all the time and spend ages deciding which SAK goes best with a particular multi or keychain tool.  I've got spreadsheets trying to evaluate particular combinations to try to point to an 'ideal' EDC.

One of the good things that came out of the recent minimalist SAK challenge recently was showing me how much I needed scissors - and that a Super Tinker or Explorer could probably handle 95% of my daily tool needs.  But I like the feel of Alox, so would prefer a Pioneer.  Then I need something with scissors, but which ones - a mod, Classic, Micra, Style PS?  The tyranny of choice...

The fun part for many is the rationalizing and scrutinizing of what to carry.  I enjoy these threads and especially enjoy the reasoning behind why this or that is carried. 

I too have many tools which makes off day carry decisions fun.  I like Alox and when I recently got a new to me red farmer I immediately wanted to carry it, tho I regularly carry an Explorer, Deluxe Tinker, or Swisschamp. 

I've carry my JPST along side my Wave because I enjoy having it with me even tho my Wave will be my primary tool of choice.  This past few weeks I've left my keychain tools on my night stand just to switch things up.  It's been interesting to reach for my manager and realize it's not there.  With so many tools at hand going minimal gives us all a chance to use what we have and not debate. 

It's sure is fun getting dressed and playing with ideas on how best we should be prepared for the day.

Another Victorinox small backpack, it is the discontinued oval upper side Flexpack with the patented ratcheting system that can be used as a backpack, monosling and funnypack.

Here are the ratcheting elements


The pack fits my bag in bag and the Skinth CatchAll but it gets tight with the second so I am preparing a lighter EDC with a Shield 2XL


It has nice small pockets inside and I bought it second hand unused for 30€ (new ~80€).

I enjoyed it a lot in the way. The secret to success is the bag in bag concept. I just move from bag to bag that open black bag in bag with some essentials and my Skinth with my tools (toys). Just two things to remember. Both items are recent, purchased during my MTO era.
I even have two bags in bag into my Skinth. One is a clear congress namecard holder with a first aid kit for cuts (bandaids, alcohol pads etc) and the second a but for all small items. The second is in its 4th generation already. After trying my army days sewing kit holder, a small leather change wallet and a small EU plastic holder I now use a see through dense white mesh wallet that is bigger, thinner and permits me to see the contents and therefore retrieve them easier. I'll post some pics soon.

No. Most items are in their respective pocket (of the Pentapocket system) and the material has memory, meaning that it adapts to its contents and stays that way until you put the tool back again.
The only tools that are side by side are the Crunch, BiC, XLT and Vic sharpener but they all have smooth sides/scales (I put the Crunch with the protruding pliers piece resting in a fold of the material). The only thing that happens is that when I remove the Crunch or XLT then the BiC or Vic might fell in the side at an angle and I have to put it in it's place, no big deal.

After reaching top load with the Skinth CatchAll, I now consider a lighter EDC, built around a SAK and Multitool. I think that my new Alox SAK with scissors hiraethus made for me will pair perfectly my scissorless Spirit. Another option is the XLT with a Crunch or Skeletool and the Charge TTi with hobbit scissors can replace the Spirit.
I ordered a Skinth Shield 2XL (and a Toolet M7 by the way) for this setup but it occurred to me that the unsang Victorinox OD Nylon seath that I EDCed before the Skinth might be able to accommodate this setup.
Guess what? It does.
Here it is, loaded.

Look how smaller it is compared with the Skinth CatchAll and the Victorinox Swisstool Plus seath.

And here the full load.

Maybe I'll start using it, while I wait for the Shield.

Watches? I always carry one and have just a few. I have an eye for two specific watches I might get someday. Just one of the two. My No 1 is Tissot T- Touch
(Image removed from quote.)
And my No 2 is Suunto Core
(Image removed from quote.)

Until then I EDC the last year a Sector that's very EDC friendly.

(Image removed from quote.)

For outdoors (and right now) I use a Casio Protek

(Image removed from quote.)

And I exchange them from time to time with my previous EDCs, an automatic mechanical watch called Follie Follie

(Image removed from quote.)
(Image removed from quote.)

A Swiss Military (very nice)

(Image removed from quote.)

A watch my mother gave me

(Image removed from quote.)

And a Reymond Weill, present of my wife 23 years ago

Rarely I carried this Soviet chain watch, mechanical and stainless steel with hunting engraving. Might EDC it when I grow older.

Before my Skinth CatchAll, 10 months ago, I EDC'd both this OD seath with Spirit, ratchet, extender and 6mm bits AND a Victorinox SOS leather sheath with an XLT and stuff. So this is going to be my lightest EDC since I joined here and the first without some kind of Swisschamp in 27-28 years. Let's see if I'll survive this. I will feel some inconvenience, that's for sure.
Today I tried to finalize the setup (a temporary, pre Skinth 2XL setup) and the outcome is this.

You can see that I sewed a black ribbon on the left side (as seen) for a Minimag LED. The material wasn't very good, I might redo it with some elastic ribbon in the future, but it works.
I replaced the 6mm bit kit and philips adapter with a Leatherman bit kit. I choose all the metric Hex and Torx bits and a PZ3/0 bit. I don't know if I will prefer it over the hexagonal bits but it saves space. So the Pocketwrench II fits nicely with it.

You can see the full contents here. I have put in the Leatherman extender since I choose the flat bits. I also used the same black paracord with OD dots everywhere. I don't like much the three paracords, it is too much, so I might remove the one from the SAK since it is easy to retrieve it from the case without the lanyard. I'm still testing.
I like the option of a corkscrew and it is a holder for the mini driver I use all the time (I wear glasses).

The testing already started, so I used the Spirit to pass the needle through the many layers of nylon, the corkscrew to untie the paracord until I was content with the result, the SAK scissors to cut the paracord. But I had to use the BiC from my Skinth to burn the paracord edges.
If the spirit had the 91mm scissors and blade (doable if they don't mind the tools not following completely the curves of the handles, as Leatherman chooses to do, they might make the blades OHO this way) I wouldn't need the SAK at all. The Spirit has all the over a century field tested tools a man needs, even a hook, and they all lock! My keychain Minichamp completes the setup with the more delicate tools for personal care and opening of smaller screws, a pen and a choice of toothpick or tweezers.
So the blades now are just three, with the SAK's the best of the three.
I think it is going to be fine, as long as I pass the withdrawal stage unharmed.

Thanks hiraethus. Yes, the Animus was going to be used, I changed setup to use it and it permitted me to change setup. It was used already since it replaced my Squirt as my general purpose scissors in home. I don't know if the Victorinox 91mm is the best pair of scissors but it is the one I prefer and I am considerably accustomed to their qualities. A lightweight frame makes their use easier. Since they were not included in their masterpiece, the Spirit, the rational thing to do was carry a lightweight SAK that sports them.
I was going to ask Syph007 to make me one sooner or later so your gift was spot on and valuable. These are the scales I prefer and the only change would be an awl or pruner blade in place of the combo tool. I love them both. Since the Spirit has an awl, the pruner would add one more special blade to the setup, mainly for box opening. The Cadet's file would be another option but I have it on the Minichamp. I'm just giving you ideas for future projects.
Stay assured that it is already loved and used.
