    Co-Pilot at work

    Thought I'd show one of my favorite features of the Co-Pilot, which I prefer as an every day carry even more than as a travel bag. It always has my Kindle or iPad Mini along with my iPhone; Side Effect with wallet; thermos; umbrella or snacks; flashlight; pepper spray and first aid kit. I really like this bag for commuting, because it's very secure (I can hold onto the top handle as well as have wrapped around my shoulder while I'm in a crowded place, and the zippers close completely, and can be secured together with a few carabiners if I feel the need.)

    But one thing I really have began to like, is that it sits unobtrusively at the side of my desk, and stays upright, at least while it is against the wall, so that I can reach for anything I need, and even charge my electronics while keeping them inside the bag.

    The Pilot has also been pre-ordered. I will probably use that as an EDC as well, switching between the two bags depending on how much I'm taking that day.

    I have a pre-order on a black dyneema Co-Pilot. I can't wait to experience this bag. Your Co-Pilot is very handsome. :)

    I think it's really appropriate for work. On the other hand when I'm traveling it seems a little stodgy for walking around the city all day. I haven't yet found anything that works for me 100%.

    The Co-Pilot is a really good bag, though, whatever you use it for.

    I put one of those zipper pull lights on one of the small side pockets on my Imago. I was amazed at how just adding a zipper pull made the pocket more usable.

    My Co-Pilot arrives today and it will be used for work, as well as travel and EDC. Really looking forward to using it!

    The Black Dyneema Co-Pilot is absolutely beautiful--I received mine not that long ago and I couldn't be happier (this is actually my second response to someone on the forum regarding this particular bag). I found the non-Dyneema Co-Pilot to be a bit stodgy as bchaplin said, for walking around town--but the Dyneema Co-Pilot is amazingly versatile. It looks fantastic when I am carrying it to work (I am in academia), as well as when I am out and about around town, or even going into the city for the day (Boston).

    Can you post a picture of the black Dyneema co-pilot? I have the fabric in a shop bag but it's not the same as I'm contemplating a pilot preorder...

    Sorry for the delay kkintea---here are a couple of quick pictures, with some other dyneema in there for a comparison. Inside the large main pocket I have a mesh 3D organizer and a medium Arc Notebook. Hope this helps! Sorry about the over-exposure in them...the sun is setting which makes a beautiful view from my 14th floor office, but a crappy picture.

    For some reason I can't get the other pictures to post. The error message that I am getting says that I can't post more than 5 pictures per post. I will try again this evening.
