Pilot- First week on the job!
Excellent- sums up week one in one word. My Navy/Solar Pilot (w/ AS) worked and performed better than I expected. Loaded with a 13" MBA in the correct Cache, mini iPad, Mophie battery "juice pack", Rhodia 2014 Date Book, Evernote Moleskine large notebook, pens/pencils (OP) 3-D OP (Wasabi) with earbuds, cables, adaptors, etc, and a few other OP for business cards, receipts and smaller (3"X5" Rhodia notebook) and straps for all- the bag is simply amazing! Even had room for letter-sized file folders inside and 1" sized binders i the back pocket
I, like many in this forum, spent hours lamenting over the correct purchase (Cadet, Zephyr, Empire Builder, ID- so MANY great choices. I finally wore myself down (some items were unavailable, too), and ordered the Navy Pilot! And I'm so glad I did. This guys my work companion!
Like all us "Bihners" I do have more stuff on order, but that's for another forum post!Attachment 6053
PILOT- from EDC Briefcase to "sweet" overnight bag
Here is my Pilot "transformed" from my EDC work briefcase to my overnight bag! Remove 13" MBA sleeve and use 2 packing cubes (1 pair of slacks & 2 shirts) other small cube has socks/t-shirts/underwear), navy/clear 3D organizer cube for toiletries, 3D wasabi organizer cube for cables, etc. Additionally have some organizer pouches for business cards, small notebooks and one pens/pencil pouch. iPad fits inside (main compartment pockets) nicely, so does my Mophie Juice Pack (front right compartment)Attachment 6079
