The Co-Pilot is a small, personal carry-on travel bag designed to fit the essentials — the items you want close at hand and easily accessible during your flight or at the airport. It's a natural complement to our larger Aeronaut, Tri-Star, and Western Flyer carry-on travel bags. (Like the Co-Pilot but need something just a little bigger for more stuff or to hold a 13" laptop? See the Pilot.)
The Co-Pilot is made with an exterior of our U.S. made, 1050 denier, high tenacity ballistic nylon — which has twice the abrasion resistance of 1680 denier fabric — and an interior of our ultra-lightweight 200 denier Halcyon/nylon ripstop fabric, custom produced for us in Japan. A version of the Co-Pilot with an exterior and interior of the Japanese Halcyon/nylon fabric, which weighs 35% less than the ballistic nylon version, is also available. The front of the Co-Pilot features piping to help it keep its shape and smart looks — no matter how full or empty it is. The Co-Pilot features #8 YKK Aquaguard® water-repellent zippers with metal pulls. Included with the bag are five Cord Zipper Pulls, allowing you to add them to the metal zipper pulls or replace the metal zipper pulls entirely. See here for instructions.
The Co-Pilot has three front pockets and one main, back compartment. The front left compartment has an small organizational pocket and the compartment is sized to fit a toiletry kit (such as our 3D Clear Organizer Cube, designed to serve as a 3-1-1 bag) or similar-size item. It has one
The middle front pocket of the Co-Pilot 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 right side front pocket of the Co-Pilot has four pen pockets and one
The main compartment of the Co-Pilot is wide, open, and ready to accept larger items, like more clothes and your iPad, ereader, or book. Inside, two open-top pouches of equal size aid organization.
The back of the Co-Pilot features a wide, open-top pocket for a magazine or newspaper. The bottom of this pocket zips open so you can slide the Co-Pilot over the handle of rolling luggage.
The Co-Pilot has a comfortable handle padded with PORON® foam, centered above the center of gravity. Shoulder Strap attachment points are on the left and right sides of the Co-Pilot. Our Standard Shoulder Strap is included with the Co-Pilot. You have the option of upgrading to our Absolute Shoulder Strap for an extra $20.
Not just a great travel bag, the Co-Pilot will assist you once you reach your destination — it's the perfect day bag to carry your map or guidebook, water bottle, jacket, and umbrella, with room leftover to collect small souvenirs on your trip.
Choosing an Exterior Fabric
You like choices and we like to give you choices! That's why the Co-Pilot is typically available* in two different exterior fabrics. Here are some quick facts about each fabric that may help you decide which to choose. And we're always here if you have questions: email@example.com denier Halcyon
A ripstop fabric woven of 420 denier nylon (base fabric) with a square grid of 400 denier UHMWPE (ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene) yarns every .25" / 6mm with a light urethane coating. Made in Japan. For more information, see our Materials Glossary.
Choose this fabric if:
1050 denier Ballistic
“Ballistic” because it was first made to be layered 20 plies thick for bullet-proof jackets. A filament cloth, so it has a smooth surface as opposed to a texturized or fuzzy appearance and feel. Super tough. Made in U.S.A. For more, see our Materials Glossary.
Choose this fabric if:
*There may be times when one of the exterior fabrics mentioned here isn't available. Even with our best efforts, the demand for our bags occasionally outpaces our production capabilities: at times, some products, color combinations, or fabrics might be temporarily unavailable or "In Production." See the In Production color combinations as a guide to what our factory crew is making and what will be available next.

Measure your laptop (or Google its make, model,
and the word “dimensions” to find its listed dimensions).
Compare its measurements with the chart to the left (swap the Height and Width when measuring for a Vertical oriented Cache).
2. Compare Those Measurements To These

Build your own organization
your bag already has great built-in organization. that said, you may want to add these optional organizational accessories to further organize and protect what you carry.
The Cache is a protective laptop or tablet sleeve that's available in many sizes.
The Standard Shoulder Strap has a .25" / 6 mm texturized rubber pad, making it a good choice for those looking for some comfort but not needing the over-the-top comfort of the Absolute Strap. The Absolute Shoulder Strap has a unique, patented, internal control-stretch system, making it the ideal shoulder strap for those who carry hefty loads or simply want the most comfortable strap available.
Defects in materials or workmanship are uncommon and are most often evident while your bag is still new. Keep in mind that daypacks and briefcases are often subject to serious wear in everyday use. We often see TOM BIHN bags that are still solid and in use after five, ten, fifteen, even twenty or twenty-five years, with minor repairs needed here or there. But remember: only true love lasts forever.
