Tom has updated the design of the Co-Pilot, a new personal carry-on sized travel bag made available for pre-order last month and scheduled to ship in June. The back pocket of the Co-Pilot now features a zip-open (and shut) pocket designed to allow you to slip the bag over the handle of rolling luggage, as seen in the photo below. When not being used in that way, the pocket can be zipped shut for magazines, newspapers, maps, etc. The interior of this pocket is lined with our Dyneema/nylon rip-stop fabric. All Co-Pilots – even those pre-ordered on the very first day – will have the new pocket for rolling luggage handles.
The below photos were shot today in our Seattle factory, using Chris and Jolie Guillebeau’s rolling luggage. (Chris also carries an Empire Builder, which makes perfect sense.)
