    Co-Pilot and Water Bottle

    Earlier I asked about whether or not the Co-Pilot would fit the new 11.6in MacBook Air (the answer seems to be 'yes'). I'm still pondering a purchase of the Co-Pilot. My other query about it is if the water bottle pocket can fit a vacuum mug (i.e., travel mug that holds hot liquids). If anyone has fit a vacuum mug in a Co-Pilot, please let me know what brand and size bottle you used.

    As I posted elsewhere, I have not had a lot of luck with under-seat storage on planes lately. I'm still looking for the most compact travel bag that will fit into a fairly tight space. One important feature to me is the ability to hold a travel mug, which I use for drinking tea and coffee (much easier to hold during a bumpy flight than a styrofoam cup of liquid).

    I've put the Contigo Vacuum-Insulated travel mug in there (the 16oz no-handle one) and it fits -- I have to pull the zipper over the jutting-out part of the lid (it's not perfectly circular) but it stays closed just fine.

    I can take pictures in a few days, if that would help.

    Thanks, Marbenais! That's very helpful to know.
    I don't need a photo, I just wanted to know if a vacuum mug could be found that would fit that pocket.

    Hi Beth,
    I tried two Thermos brand containers in the Co-Pilot water bottle pocket. One is 8.25X2.5 the other is 6.5X3.5. I also tried an 18oz Klean Kanteen (8X2.75). All three fit with room left over for three or four snack bars. All measurements in inches.
    Happy travels,
    List exceeds allowed characters. So I'll just say I'm plum and kiwi loving FOT!
