Full Description

Main Compartment

The main compartment is large enough to store clothes or a 11" Macbook Air or smaller tablet in a Cache. Inside, there are two open-top pockets of equal size — perfect spot to store an organizer, like our Clear 3D Organizer Cube or Vertical Packing Cubelet. On each interior side of the main compartment are 2 O-rings so that you can attach our Mystery Organizer Pouches and Ghost Whale Organizer Pouches

3 Front Exterior Organizational Pockets

The Co-Pilot has three front zippered pockets with an O-ring in each. The front left compartment also has a small organizational pocket. 

The middle front pocket is designed to fit a small water bottle or compact folding umbrella. The bottom of this pocket has an eyelet so any condensation, spills, or leaks won't puddle in the bag.

The front right pocket has four pen pockets and one O-ring which includes a Key Strap. It's the same size as the left pocket and it's perfect for storing things like a digital camera, snacks, or even a light wind shell or down vest in a Travel Stuff Sack

Rolling Luggage Handle Pass-Through

We know many of you like to use our bags as personal items alongside roller luggage when traveling, so the pass-through pocket is tucked on the bottom of the open-top back pocket. 

There are, of course, different sizes of rolling luggage with different handle lengths and widths. If you'd like to place your Co-Pilot over the handle of your rolling luggage, that handle will need to be at least 292.1 mm / 11.5" tall and at most 50.8 mm / 2" wide. 

The pocket also has a zipper on the bottom side so when you are not utilizing it for a luggage pass-through, you can just zip it up and store quick-access items in there. 

What's Included

Standard Shoulder Strap
1.5" / 38 mm nylon webbing strap, includes .25" / 6mm texturized rubber pad and heavy-duty plastic snaphooks.

8" Snaphook/Snaphook Key Strap
As with most of our bags, we've included a key strap. 8" long from tip-to-tip, a snaphook on either end. Good for attaching your keys to.

A Set of Black Zipper Pulls
A set of pulls to extend, quiet, or replace your metal pulls.
 

What's Optional

Absolute Shoulder Strap
Upgrade from the included 1.5” strap to an Absolute Shoulder Strap if you anticipate carrying a heavy load.

3D Clear Organizer Cube
The 3D Clear Organizer Cube is the perfect organizer for your toiletries and is specifically designed to meet the TSA 3-1-1 liquids-program requirements. If you want a faster and smoother security checkpoint experience, use the Cube as your go-to toiletries bag. 

Cache
The Co-Pilot can accommodate a wide range of devices. If you plan on putting a laptop or smaller tablet in the interior banded open-top pocket, we recommend adding a Cache

    Work / Travel / Everyday - this bag does it all

    Versatile bag that holds much more than expected. Comfortable strap, high quality workmanship and materials, smooth and sturdy zippers. Front pocket for water bottle is amazing (I want this is all of my bags now). It could alternatively hold a pair of sandals or a Tom Bihn Vertical Packing Cubelet.

    Shown below:

    -A full load (iPad Pro 11", letter size folder full of papers, TB Vertical Packing Cubelet + contents (1.5L), A5 journal, 15 ounce water bottle, TB medium Double Organizer Pouch + contents, TB Side Effect + contents, Eagle Creek mini Pack-It cube + contents (.3L), pen pouch, mask pouch, foldable shopping bag. TB Nik's wallet)

    I love this bag and see below for the reasons.

    A little backstory. I purchased the orange colorway December 2021 and used for about a year, until I spilled oil on it and then had to get the constellation colorway (December 2022). The following applies to both Co-Pilots, but the blue one was by far better. See the cons below why.

    1. The bag is compact enough to not be a burden to carry.

    2. It fits my Chromebook x2 11, Kobo Libra 2, various EDC (external batteries), and Switch Lite very well for long days I'm out doing errands.

    3. The sheer amount of pockets make it oh so very wonderful for organization and segmentation. A water bottle pocket and pen organization. The front pocket is great for an external battery ready to charge any device.

    4. Pairs well with my side effect to organize my small EDC items.

    Cons: Like I said. I loved the orange color way but the constellation color way was flat out better for one simple reason. The ZIPPERS.

    The orange colorway had some very stiff zippers that made closing them a 2 handed operation. The constellation colorway has smooth zippers that I can close one handed. I am not sure why this is, but I am grateful for the smoother zippers all over this bag.

    So happy

    The size and shape is suited for in-flight needs, and also very suitable for daily needs on the ground.

    Recently travelled to Brisbane for ten days from my home in Melbourne (Australia). The Big Bihn *Aero 30" plenty of room for that time, and the Co-Pilot just perfect for in flight (2 hours duration).

    My Arty-Buddy Bag

    Love the size, the design, and what it holds. Art stuff, travel necessities, small ipad, no need for a purse. Can carry it cross body, by handle, or riding on my suitcase. Love it!

Sewn in Seattle

Our bags are designed and sewn right here in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

That allows us to be control freaks in the best way possible; we have direct control and oversight of the quality of our materials, our products, and the jobs and working environment that we help create. It also offers us a unique spontaneity: when we have an idea for a new product or accessory, we can design it, figure out how to build it, add it to our website and be ready to ship it out our front door all within just a few weeks. How cool is that?

Intrigued? You can find out more about the unusual way we do business on our Company Philosophy page.

THE BIHN Guarantee

Everything you buy from us here at TOM BIHN is satisfaction guaranteed. We’ve been in business since 1972 and we stand behind what we make.

If something goes wrong and it's our fault, we'll fix it for free. Repairs due to normal wear and tear or due to other things that are not our fault will be performed, when possible, at a reasonable charge right here in our Seattle factory where your bag was made. Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and almost always evident while the product is still new. Keep in mind that bags and packs are often subject to extreme wear in everyday use: do not expect them to last forever. Only true love lasts forever! You can expect a TOM BIHN product to give years and years of hard service.
