    So, I have received my box of dyneema goodies (yay, Northwest Sky!), and I LOVE the ultraviolet pen wrap. I think my Pilot G2's fit fine. My JetStreams do not fit as well, but that is not a big deal....

    That was my thought when I first saw mine! (It looked so tiny). However, I survived a two week trip with it (and one Pilot as a personal item). In my mind the tradeoff in weight is worth the smaller...

    Well then. The best EDC and travel bag is (IMO) the ballistic Pilot. (Or its little brother the Co-Pilot.)
    Why?

    1. It holds its shape well and sits up on its own. Here is my Co-Pilot on my desk...

    Awesome! You could always take whatever nice-looking Tom Bihn bag you are carrying, and throw it into a beat-up (but lightweight) duffel, which could be folded away later. Though I guess I would only...

    That is reassuring, thank you.

    I love those pens. To the point where I always keep six or so extras on hand in case there is some catastrophic natural event at the Pilot factory.

    Oh, noes. I just ordered a wrap, and my favorite pens are the Pilot G2's. Guess it won't work for me. I'm not sure if sending it back will be worth it though.

    Exactly! I love the look of this bag, and non-floppiness is an important feature.
    I'm a big fan of bags that stand upright -- hence my huge collection of Co-Pilots and Pilots.

    The Night Flight Travel Duffel would be allowed as a main bag on Ryanair, right? I'm assuming it is just too big as a secondary, personal bag.
