"My pilot came! The UPS man came and I snatched the box from his hands. I love the size. It is perfect. Big enough but not too big." --atarango1
"As far as size, I think this could easily be a bag to use for a 3 to 4 day trip, especially if the trip is to a warmer climate where you have no need to dress up. I'm not sure how/where I'd squeeze in an extra pair of shoes (as light as I pack, I always like an extra pair) but I bet you could squeeze in a pair of flip flops for the beach very easily. But of course, this bag is really the ultimate size for a personal carry on and will certainly be able to hold enough stuff to keep you occupied even on the longest of flights." --WMW40
"I can't wait to start packing it for my upcoming conference. I specifically want to see if I can get away with only taking the Pilot. I will have to look "professional", travel by plane (thus I will want to bring knitting), and will have to carry stuff with me all day (hotel is offsite from main events)." --gochicken
"It crosses over nicely from travel bag, overnight bag, work bag, knitting bag, and EDC. Of course, to each his own. That's why I love Tom Bihn. He makes bags that appeal to many different types of people for all their varying needs!" --Mausermama
"I carried the Nordic pilot to a business meeting where everyone was wearing suits, so formal end of the spectrum. No one seemed to find it unusual. And the color really popped against my black suit. " --Yoda Sloth
"This Pilot is sick!! I am able to fit more than I imagined and the Eagle Creek large packing sac, which can fit a change of clothes, fits like a dream in the Pilot. I am more than happy with this bag and so glad I splurged on the absolute strap." --MelissaL
"I love my new (Navy/Solar) Pilot! It's perfect for every day carry for my 11" MBA plus some misc. stuff. It also works decently well (though not as well as a Packing Cube Messenger Bag (PCMB) would!) in the center of a Tri-Star. Alternatively, I can fit my (Lumix GH1) micro 4/3 camera in a small Crumpler Haven AND MBA in there without it looking too funny. Finally, I did a test pack, and for a casual 1-2 night trip (without the camera, but with the laptop), I can get everything I need. It's like 4 bags in one!" --jmoz
"I got my Pilot yesterday - Black/Wasabi. It's early, but my first impression is that it's wonderful. It's exactly the size I hoped for to use as my work bag." --smj
Thanks to everybody for the marvelous feedback! Check out the Pilot for yourself and maybe you'll be inspired to leave your own feedback in the Forums.
