    Picture request: Co-pilot and Ristretto for iPad

    Does anyone happen to have a picture of the Co-Pilot alongside a Ristretto for iPad? And/or with a Synapse perhaps?

    Trying to get a feel for the size of the Co-Pilot. I have done my usual trick of cutting out a piece of paper the size of the bag but I think a visual comparison will help too.

    Thanks

    Jonathan

    Actually, a small cadet lined up with the co-pilot & ristretto would also be great if anyone can swing it.

    Here's the Synapse, Co-Pilot, and Ristretto for iPad. I don't have a Cadet......yet...... In the 5 days I've had the Co-Pilot, I've discovered (happily) that it's sort of like a shoulder bag version of the Synapse. Hope this helps!

    totally concur nukediver - the copilot is like a synapse messenger bag - even though the synapse has almost twice as much storage volume. below is a pic of my synapse and co-pilot and one of what was in my co-pilot today.

    Nukediver and 123veo, could you elaborate on how the Co-Pilot is a shoulder/messenger bag equivalent of the Synapse? Thanks.

    Oh my gosh, that is so true but I never thought about it before now! The water bottle pocket on the Synapse is the water bottle pocket on the Co-Pilot, the two side pockets are the same as well... Then the small "keys" pocket and bottom larger pocket on the Synapse could be the two "pouch" pockets inside the Co-Pilot's main compartment... leaving the back "magazine" pocket of the Co-Pilot to serve as the large "pouch" pocket inside the main compartment of the Synapse!

    That's exactly my thoughts as well on the Co-Pilot & Synapse. I mention it in the thread below when I was explaining to dorayme why I bought the Co-Pilot.

    nukediver and 123veo - thanks so much. It really helps to see the Co-Pilot alongside bags I'm familiar with.

    gonty, if you need more photos of the Co-Pilot alongside the Synapse, let me know: I can take one and post it here. I don't have a Ristretto, but I do have both a large and a medium Cafe bag, so I could include those as well, if it would help.

    And I never thought about the Co-Pilot being a shoulder version of the Synapse, but it is, sort of. Intriguing.

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

    Thanks for the offer Nancy.

    A Medium Cafe / Co-Pilot comparison would be great if it's not too much trouble.
