Don't understand why the change.
    They're the same exact zippers as before, just sewn in differently. See here for the full story. :)

    My bad! Should've read all those 32 pages before writing about my very first and instant impressions. Anyway, one of the coolest things I've found about the Pilot is how the front pockets fit a pair of Monster Beats Studio headphones (the originals) inside their massive case. This is usually a challenge I find with most bags, unless I decide to travel with a large backpack as my personal carry-on.
