Hey guys and gals!
I'm trying to make a decision for a trip coming up in a few months and I'd like your opinions. I'm going to be in Berlin for 2 months taking a course and I know I'm going to be taking my new Aeronaut and I was adamant about taking my iPad Ristretto, but now I'm wondering if I should leave the Ristretto and order a Co-Pilot. I'll be packing my Aeronaut with clothes and such and the other personal bag (that I'll be using all over the city and carrying to class) is going to be carrying my iPad, large Moleskine notebook, pens and pencils, iPhone, passport, boarding passes, etc. Now, I thought the Ristretto would be great until I started thinking about how I want to do some traveling on the weekends. I tried packing my Ristretto with a few clothes and such (sans iPad) and it works, BUT there's hardly any wiggle room. I did, however, discover that if I hooked my Side Effect to the shoulder strap clips via caribiners and put the flap over it, I had a new set of pockets and more room! Yeah! BUT, again, I noticed how annoying the flap could be while trying to quickly access my things. Sigh. Should I pull the trigger and order a Co-Pilot? I'm kind of leaning that way, but I'd like to hear some more opinions.
