    Nordic Dyneema Co-Pilot

    A few pictures of my new pal. I will add more as time goes on.

    I think I like the Co-Pilot in Dyneema a lot more than the ballistic--looks less boxy and more fun! and from the sounds of it, more flexible too.

    Nice - I've got the same one. With the temp hitting the 90's here already, your post reminded me I could downsize from my loyal Smart Alec ... and did so in about 2 minutes last evening.

    On another forum someone mentioned they had it in ballistic and didn't seem to care for the lack of give in the boxy-ness with that material. I've never handled one in ballistic but the Dyneema seems quite pliable. The sewing and piping provide structure but it's not stiff. I had a few things in it today.







    Book, small camera, cable, Gorillapod, keys and a few other nick-nacks. Also had a water bottle in the front pocket. On the hip the shape of the bag isn't noticable at all so far with small loads, which I like.

    Edited to add...

    Here's one more picture from today on my phone showing the CP out and about in the field. Specifically, stopping to get a coffee and read for a bit. ;)

    Just today I put a mini S-biner on one of the o-rings. I figured it would be handy to have the extra attachment point when the key strap is in use. Turns out to be good for holding this tiny key I found until I get back home.

    Gorgeous Co-Pilot! I have to admit being very tempted by it.


    Is your pen a Parker?

    Yes, it is a Parker. It was just given to me a few days ago. I'm getting reacquainted with the sometimes temperamental nature of a fountain pen but it's in pretty good shape for being around 50 years old. Here's a few other pictures.

    I would be too scared to take it to the coffee shop. That is what my Safaris are for.

    Definitely vintage!

    Yeah, it's been a while since I went to Freeport but those are both mandatory stops. Nothing beats a good beer after shopping. ;) Speaking of beer, I don't know why it took me so long to see if a bomber would fit in the water bottle pocket. Answer: yes with just a small bit poking out.







    I also found that my buddy Leo likes to paw at the cord pulls.
