    The Co-Pilot already fits the iPad nicely. :-)

    My only request is that the Pilot also be made in Dyneema. But of course!

    NO..........sorry for yelling. I would love,as stated in previous posts, to see an upsized Co-pilot (Pilot). To be used as an SLR camera/gadget bag. Maybe with a little padding that could be confirgured the way you like with Velcro..........just a thought.

    But I definately need to be just a tad thicker.


    And of course Dyneema!

    Sorry about the last post. I am definately thick enough, it's the bag that could use the thickness. Proofread!

    Add a Camera I/O sized to fit inside the Pilot :)

    That will be a winning combo!

    Till then, I am making do with my Co-Pilot with a Courierware camera insert (mini size) for my GH2 + lenses + few accessories.

    My original question was, will the Pilot accommodate a 15.4 MacBook Pro, or was it STILL basically an iPad bag.

    I'd gladly give up choosing which fabric, for the functionality of fitting the laptop I need to carry.

    According to Darcy's email on pg1, they haven't yet determined what the Pilot will be sized at.

    It takes time for Tom to conceptualize a new bag.

    For us, a Pilot is just a bigger Co-Pilot but for Tom a new name means a new bag.

    We saw that with the Synapse, when we just asked for a small Brain Bag.

    The Tri-Star when we asked for a bigger Western Flyer.

    Every new Tom Bihn bag is an adventure, we can't wait, just like when we are at the entrance of a national or regional park, the color of the sky at dawn, the beginning of a birding/wildlife watching expedition.

    I need to forget to check out the forum for just one day and I can assure you, something new will come up.

    Well... I would love to, but even my computer knows that T on the browser means Tom Bihn forum.

    I categorically deny suffering from B.A.S.

    Let say that being a Tom Bihn and Apple fan girl is very very very much fun.

    And Tom Bihn wins by a large margin because of the Lovely Crew.
    It is not everyday that one meets somebody as wonderful, kind and talented as the Designer/CEO and the CCO /VP who care and are loved so much by canis lupus familiaris.

    I absolutely love the idea of a Co-Pilot just big enough to handle A4 folders without having to force the issue. But I suspect that isn't a big enough size jump to justify a new bag. If I'm right, the Pilot will probably end up being a bit too big for me.

    It's all academic anyway, I don't have the $$ for a Co-Pilot and by the time I do, Tom may well have invented some fantastic new bag that fits my needs better that I could have ever imagined. Until then, I'll keep reading the forums and browsing the site dreaming of what my next bag will be.

    I have been considering a Co-Pilot as a travel bag for my DH, but worried that it was a little small...so NOW just have to wait and see what TB designs for the new Pilot! :) ~Tik

    I would be very interested in a Co-Pilot type bag that could hold a 13-inch MacBook.

    (Just adding my voice to the chorus.)

    Have a co-pilot; just too small for many travels. I'd love to see a new Pilot, preferably in time for a big trip I have in July!
