    A4 is no fun in a Co-pilot. If this is an important part of your usage consider the Pilot.

    No, not really - it has external length of 300mm, which means that the interior is going to be a very tight squeeze for 297mm paper. And A4 binders are usually somewhat longer than 297mm.
    Collections:
    Work EDC: SE + S19 (summer); SE + SA (winter)
    Leisure: some combination of SE/SCB/MCB/Swift/LS/FJN/DLBC/Imago/SSB
    Travel: WF + Pilot/DLBP + SE/SCB or SA + SE/SCB
    General organisation: More pouches, stuff sacks and cubes than you can shake a keystrap at!
    Favourite TB colours: aubergine, forest (sniff!), linen, wasabi, UV
    Hoping for: FJN for iPad Mini + Moleskine; a Linen Side Effect; the return of Portable Culture!

    OK, just tried. It all depends on what A4 thing you want to put into the CP. I am very surprised at this myself!

    Full pad of A4 - OK!

    But it fits fine in a Pilot.

    @weirdguy - if you have in mind one of those large paper pocket folders, I think that's a no-go. But there are other options that will work well with a CP. The safest bet, however, is a Pilot.

    Will fit into a Pilot just nicely, so it wouldn't fit in a CP for sure.

    Thanks everyone for your words and photos.
    Really appreciate it.

    Wow, Im surprise it could fit a Ring File too.
    I definitely couldn't go wrong with Pilot.

    As @meekasmom pointed out, Co-Pilot is still cute. I will to try on myself someday, not necessary own one.

    After using both for a day or more each, I have realised that they are quite different bags. Yeah, both can be used to pack clothes and stuff. Otherwise, the Pilot basically functions as a briefcase while the CP is this weird/cute lunch-box personal item thingy that looks doubly weird/cute if you have it in some shade of Dyneema or one of the less conventional shades of ballistic (e.g. Aubergine, Cardinal).

    Exactly. I couldn't have said it better. It's like the modern day lunch box. With stainless steel bento box in it, what more could you ask. Was thinking it was a great gift for someone to keep her jewelry in.

    Red. I want it in red now....I had a chance and passed. stupid. I was a TB rookie and didn't realize what I was looking at. Sound of hand slapping forehead.

    Regarding my earlier post about "Steel Dyneema 400d is retiring", TB Team had responded my email that indeed Steel 400d is retiring and "on its way out"
    From the way she responded, it doesn't like they are bringing back Steel 400d. She did told me that Black Dyneema will be in the Smart Alec in the future! (Sounds kinda long in the future).

    Just for the info, Steel Dyneema/Steel of Pilot is not in the option currently. It was still listed about 10 hours ago from this post.

    Hm... Nah, I won't get CP in any time until a new Dyneema 400d is on the option. Black Dyneema is a bit awkward for such cute bag - like @adalangdon said.

    @meekasmom, it is alright. We'd been there and learning every possible way now.

    I'm sure someone already mentioned this since I'm behind on Forum reading, but the Co Pilot is now offered in Coyote. Maybe coming soon in the Pilot? Then I'll really have to ponder whether I'll hold out for a parapack option or take the plunge.
