    ***New Pilot Bag***

    Darcy, any update on when the Pilot will be available?

    Will the Pilot be able to hold a 13" MacBook Air and an 8.5" x 11" Folio with a pad of paper at the same time?

    Just curious if any official source at Tom Bihn has confirmed that there will be a Pilot bag? I know it has been a topic of conversation on the forum, but wasn’t sure if it was really in the works. I know there were hints about a new briefcase a few months back, but I sort of assumed that was the Founder's Briefcase.

    There's definitely a Pilot in the works. In fact, I may have seen a prototype of it yesterday…. no estimated pre-order or debut date right now, though.

    This is the bag I am waiting for. I absolutely love my CP and believe a larger version will be perfect for my needs for carrying a laptop and full sized papers. Please put in a cache with rails system! Then I can use my current cache in the bag...

    Im thinking I maybe should hold out for this one too now! Wow, so many hard decisions with these bags....I would sure love if the bag had some little tether points like the FB has for little items like flashlights and pocket knives, Im all over it!
    I can't wait to see these new bags!

    Right now for me its between this new Pilot, the Co pilot, Western Flyer, or the Founders Briefcase. My wallet is really in for a painful one.

    I'm thinking the new Pilot isn't going to be ready in time for my next trip.

    So any chance it will be released by Christmas?

    I keep looking at the other bags, but since the Imago has been retired, nothing else quite fits the bill.

    I love my Co-Pilot, and use it with my Mac Air 11" along with the small shopping bag. But with winter coming on strong in the Midwest, I would love to have a Pilot to use once the snow and ice hits.

    Any hints as to colors or fabrics?

    I would be willing to get a new Co-Pilot to satisfy my OCDs is I have to do so, but I would rather get another travel bag to accompany my new Pilot.... once it becomes available...

    Also, any idea if the Pilot will be available before the end of 2013?
