The Perfect Bag-Co-Pilot- Just bigger ="A Senior Pilot"
For the record I am a bag-o-holic. People collect things items or whatever, I collect bags. Love the pockets, gadgets and all that. I have a Co-Pilot and love it, small cafe bag as a "Man Purse" on the weekends. My son has stole my Co-Pilot for his Ipad.
I was thinking that as perfect as the Co-Pilot is, it could be bettered by adding 2 inches to it. I would love to be able to carry my Macbook Pro in it and my Ipad at the same time. Then I would have my perfect bag.
Just a thought.
Senior-Pilot, "Captain" is a good idea from the Co-Pilot
I have a black Co-Pilot and have been using it for a little more than a month. The quality in the workmanship and the organizational pockets are such a treat. I know the bag was designed for an I-Pad and not for a lap top etc. yet I too wouldn't mind a larger version of this bag.
Over the holidays I was away for a night or two and used the Co-Pilot as my over-night bag. Packed full, to the point where it was so stuffed I couldn't access what I needed without placing it down and taking several things out (really enjoy those organizer pouches and the 3D clear organizer cube!). Sure, I knew it would hold everything and it was crammed (weighed over 6 lbs when stuffed with my gear!) but I wouldn't have minded a little more space. Personally, on a plane with this bag as my seat-bag, I would want a little more room for access. Granted if it would hold a 13" MacBook Pro - all the better.
One thing I noticed about the Co-Pilot - the large main segment has the two roomy pockets. If I fill those - such as with my heavy, very thick Filofax, plus a full 3D clear organizer cube in the two pockets - there really doesn't leave room for much else.
Yes, I have a Western Flyer on my wish list, but I wouldn't mind a slightly larger verion of the Co-Pilot. I know there are others - like the Imago - but my hope would be a larger version in the future. ;)
