    Co-Pilot as a multi-purpose PCSB and tourist EDC?

    I've been trying to envision the Co-Pilot and how it could be used in both air- and over-the-road-travel.

    My ideas focus on the Co-Pilot being carried inside other luggage, most likely an Aeronaut, and being used during the flight/road trip as a kind of improvised Packing Cube Shoulder Bag-like device, only with superior built-in organizer facilities. (I saw an Aeronaut packing demo video wherein someone named Chris, who was going to Japan, did just that.) I assume that, once at the destination, the Co-Pilot could be unpacked and repurposed as an Every-Day Carry (EDC) -style shoulder "murse" or micro-briefcase.

    Has anyone ever used the Co-Pilot in a Scenario like this? If so, what did you pack in the Co-Pilot and how did you use it while you were "away" on your trip? How did it work for you? What fabric style does your Co-Pilot employ? Did you take your Co-Pilot in EDC mode for business or pleasure?

    Most importantly: how do people you meet regard your Co-Pilot? Does anyone ever talk to you about it? What do they say?

    As a man living in hillbilly country, I have never had a "murse" before. I wondered how folks you meet during a trip regard seeing a man using a Co-Pilot as an EDC. (NOTE: I have not ruled out the use of a Packing Cube Backpack, either, but the PCBP is not as organizer-oriented as the Co-Pilot.)

    I almost always use this combo when traveling, and it is fantastic. I pack the Co-Pilot as my in-seat bag when flying, so when I get to security I pull it out of the Aeronaut and put it over my shoulder so I don't need to dig it out on the plane. Also, this makes the Aeronaut look smaller so if you're flying on one of those regional planes you won't have to gate check your bag. When traveling for business, I use the Co-Pilot as what you describe as a micro-briefcase, or EDC.

    I haven't had the pleasure of anyone asking me about the bag yet.

    Thanks, nukediver! Very thoughtful answer. I appreciate the suggestions.

    What is your Co-Pilot's fabric? (exterior and interior)
