    Co-Pilot Review: I made a video!

    I received my Co-Pilot yesterday. Is my review premature? Maybe but, who cares? I made a video! Plus, I have already used the bag for a few hours, in inclement weather, walking, so there. :P

    Disclaimer: English is NOT my first language, so I apologize for any horrendous errors. I was improvising all the time. When I say lighter (what I keep in my pen slots) I should have said flashlight. But hey, I tried to get the point across. :)

    I love TB products and the Co-Pilot is no exception. We are travelling to France in May, and this will be my carry-on item on Iceland Air. :) I can't wait!

    I requested some art box, which I received. I will post a photo shortly.

    Feedback is more than welcome. Enjoy!

    I requested a hedgehog in Paris as my son loves hedgehogs and we're taking him to France this year.

    What a wonderful video! I am picking up my Black Dyneema/Wasabi Co-Pilot from the store very soon, and I cannot wait! Thank you so much for taking the time to post this review.

    Great job!! Even though I also just got a Copilot, and can look at it myself, I still watched your video! Mine is navy/Iberian, but you make me really like the black Dyneema. I like how you can get both a Side Effect and an iPad mini in there.
    p.s. I don't have a car either, and am also a pen/pencil freak. :)

    Seriously, I am thrilled about this colour combination. It is so classy and beautiful. I took the reflection photo on the subway last night as I was heading home. I am about 5'6" for size reference. I received a couple of compliments on it last night. :)

    Thanks for the great video! I appreciated your showing that the side-effect would fit in the back pocket (mine is black dynema with wasabi lining as well - I love that color combo too).

    You did an excellent job on your first video. Your English was just fine. Looking forward to seeing more videos.

    Maybe you might want to make another version of this video in your native tongue and share it with your friends as well.

    Great video. Thanks for taking the time to make it. Videos like this help people like me, who are new to these bags. Someone already mentioned, but your English was better than some people who grew up in the states.

    Thank you, guys! I will think about making the video in Spanish. Still using the Co-Pilot as EDC. No regrets whatsoever. Amazing bag. My only problem is that I do not have more in different colours. :p

    Co-Pilot Review: I made a video!

    Thanks for the fantastic video walk-through of your EDC Co-Pilot and Side Effect. It was both informative and enjoyable. Now I think I have Black Dyneema Wasabi envy. I own two Co-Pilots (Cardinal Red Ballistic/Steel Dyneema interior and a Steel Dyneema/Steel interior). The Red was my work EDC until recently...now it has been upgraded to the Black Ballistic/Wasabi Pilot for more room. My other Steel Dyneema Co-Pilot is my go to bag when I take my two kids out and about carrying water bottles, snacks, spare diaper, and spare change of clothes for the kids (t-shirts and shorts).

    Cheers, WenV

    Excellent video - thanks! Of course now I want a Copilot. It really does hold a lot.
