I'm very excited for my Pilot on pre-order (as some of you might already know), and I thought I'd pick the brains of this clever group of folks for something I've been kicking around in my head. It's nice that the CP/P have the slip on the back to fit over the handle of a rolling bag, but most of us don't want to use a rolling bag. (Ever, if possible!) That said, I like carrying my Tri-Star using the Absolute strap most of the time. I can carry the TS and P on opposite sides (both with shoulder straps), but it seems like there should be a good way to piggyback the CP/P on a Tri-Star (or other bag.)
I was considering building straps that connect the Pilot to the Absolute strap on the TS, but I wasn't sure if that would stick out too far and create a long lever arm for the weight of the Pilot. I was considering wearing the TS low and finding a way to attach the Pilot to the top, but I wasn't sure how to do that without it being a mess. It seems like there should be a good way to use the slip-opening on the back of the Pilot, but I'm not coming up with a clever solution just yet.
Any ideas? I'm not at all afraid to cobble together a prototype of something. Perhaps if we come up with something good and flexible, TB will even make it? I surely can't be the only person looking for a better way to carry the Pilot/TS together. I have considered carrying the TS in backpack mode, but I like the option of the Absolute strap approach.
