    I like the black/wasabi co-pilot colour.

    Trying hard to decide between the Co-Pilot and the Pilot
    Given that the Co-Pilot's external dimensions are 12" x 10" x 5", I don't think that laptop will fit very well. It will likely squeeze by the zippers without any case, but given that there is also no protection provided by the bag, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Check out the video I posted a couple of weeks ago of the Pilot, which I do some comparisons of to the Co-Pilot. The laptop I used here is an 11" Chromebook that is a little taller than a MacBook Air 11". It obviously fits very easily into a Pilot, and it fits pretty easily into my Co-Pilot, but I don't think I would go with a larger laptop than that in the CP.

    OK. I don't really love the current colour combinations for the pilot right now though. Should I wait for new colours to come out or should I just buy one now? Not sure how long it takes for the new colours to come out...

    I like the solar and wasabi interior, but would like black or gray for the exterior. (Gray preferably). I saw a picture of the forest and navy pilots and they look a bit too bright for bringing to my office.

    Black/Wasabi is a pretty regular colour combination across a lot of bags. That should likely come back in a future product in batch.

    Solar is being re-retired, so I wouldn't expect to see another production run done with Solar other than the current batch with Navy.

    If you are ok with a grey exterior, consider the Steel/Ultraviolet. It looked really garish online, but it was love at first sight when I actually got some. You can see the combo close up in my Aeronaut 30 video.

    If you don't love the current colours, I would say to wait. The bag is great, but you should buy the one you will really love.
