I'm a huge ballistic nylon fan and out of all my bags, the pilot gets the most use (it's my daily work bag).

I did have it first in original halcyon/wasabi but sold it and moved to a Navy ballistic/Solar. I just preferred the more professional look.

However, because of its small compartments, it's the only bag I own where I prefer the flexibility of the halcyon v ballistic.

With Nordic and Black halcyon now here (and hopefully soon in the pilot), I think it's time to go back to this fabric for my pilot.

Exciting times.

I've been using my pilot non stop ever since I got it 5 weeks ago. I've been able to one bag everything for my business trips using the A45 with the pilot inside.

Looking at the new halcyon design I think I'm in love. Currently stalking a S19 with black halcyon.

I may just get the co pilot in the same color as well. Like I said , think I'm in love...

Sorry to bump this thread, but can you two post pics of your co-pilot and/or pilot in the new black halcyon?

@bintobeen,

I know that you've requested that forum members post pictures of the Pilot in the new black Halcyon both here, and in the other thread you started yesterday, (https://forums.tombihn.com/general-bag-discussion/11247-pilot-*black*-halcyon-dyneema.html) so you could see "some more realistic, nonstudio shots of how this new black-on-black looks."

However, I wanted to point out that the Co-Pilot has not yet been released in the new Halcyon, and that the announcement of the Pilot's availability in the new black Halcyon was only made on Saturday (4 days ago, or 3 days before you first made your request, and on a weekend). So, while it's possible that some forum member who lives in the Seattle vicinity saw the new bag posting, immediately ordered a Pilot in the new Black Halcyon, and got it delivery on Tuesday, or else runs into the Seattle showroom this morning immediately after it opens at 8:00 a.m. -- which would be the first time they could visit the showroom in person to buy this bag -- it's just not generally possible for forum members to take pictures of this bag in the new black Halcyon unless they also happen to be employees who work at Tom Bihn and have earlier access than anyone else. In most instances, it will take about a week after the order is placed and shipped for a bag to arrive, and the earliest that shipments of black Halcyon Pilots could have gone out was two days ago.

A number of people have bought the Pilot in the original Halcyon colors in the two years since it's original release, and you can find pictures of those bags throughout the forums. Similarly, you can find pictures of various other bags that have just been released in the new black Halcyon around the forums -- I've recently posted some of the Daylight Briefcase in the new Black Halcyon (https://forums.tombihn.com/photos-videos-and-reviews/11226-new-black-dark-grid-halcyon-daylight-briefcase.html), but that's a smaller bag than the Pilot.

@Perseffect and others are/were anticipating being able to order the Pilot in the new Black Halcyon. We all hope to see more pictures of these bags soon.

Hope this helps,

moriond

Thanks morion - very helpful. I dont want to be a nudnik but I'm trying to plan an upcoming trip and wanted a little more details before I ordered - its easy to return in principle, but you're paying a $20 tax each time ($10 shipping one way, $10 return) for the privilege, so it isn't exactly free...

Wow, in searching the forum, I found this old post I made about 10 months ago saying that I might revisit halcyon in the pilot. And looking at the trail, @moriond was kind enough to highlight the Darcy post talking about the unusual Black and Nordic/Steel interiors from 18th June 16.

Well, on Friday I just took delivery of a Nordic/Steel Pilot. I really like the Steel combination with the Nordic, more even than the Nordic/NWS. I think the darker steel actually works to slightly temper the vibrant Nordic which is good in a work bag (in my opinion).

Seems like this was the last of the Nordic/Steel options in the pilot (and possibly other bags?) so glad I grabbed it.

It's a good thing I never saw the nordic halcyon/steel Pilot. I love steel! And I love the Pilot...
