How about a Plus-Size Co-Pilot?

    Agree. Love the arrangement of the storage sections on the Co-Pilot, but it's too small for me to use on a regular basis. I'd like to see the main section large enough to hld a leather portfolio containing an 8.5"x11" notepad comfortably. If a 15.4" MacBook Proin a Cache would fit in the main section with the portfolio too, all the better, maybe even close to ideal. I think I'd find such a case a little more professional looking than the ID and Ego, being more rectilinear, but with more flexible usage and separate storage areas than an Empire Builder or Zephyr.

    I really like the design of the co-pilot but I need something that can fit a 13" laptop. That would be my ideal bag.... I'm just chiming in with my vote for a plus sized co-pilot

    I'm still interested in this future "PILOT" too!! Please don't let it fall by the wayside, TB.

    A slightly larger Co-Pilot that would hold my 13 inch Macbook Air would be awesome!

    The Synapse is my favorite gym bag really. It organizes everything really well, is compact, and carries the water bottle!

    Is there a way to change the "like" button to a "Been there, done that button"?

    Well, there are folks like us who are "in denial" or trying to control our addictions. What do folks like us do? Buy 1 bag. Then buy some organizer cubes. Then buy a shopping bag. Then buy organizer pouches. Then buy 4 key straps. And a pack of cord zipper pulls.

    You know, a "Pilot" bag might make a really good gym bag, too. Roomy enough to pack a pair of gym shoes plus a change of clothing. One of the front side pockets can hold toiletries or make-up (using a 3D clear organizer cube), the other can hold your phone, wallet, etc., and you can even carry a water bottle in the center bottle pocket.

    OK I'm sold. I want a bigger "Pilot" bag, too! In Dyneema, please.

    Now I'm all excited. lol

    Actually, you know you have it bad when you buy them for yourself...and you buy them for gifts...and then you don't give the gift one or try to get it back from the person you gave it to!

    And actually isn't the first stage of a 12 step program admitting you have a problem? I don't have a problem. I just keep buying more stuff so I need more bags to put it in!!!

Actually I wanted the black/steel originally, but they were out, so I bought the Steel/solar one instead. I liked the thing so much that I use it as an organizer inside of a Saddleback Leather Satchel that I have. It fits their large satchel perfectly. I then went on to purchase the black/steel one as my primary carry bag! Simply an awesome bag that I wish was just a bit larger to house my MacBook Pro 13"!

    A Pilot that would be between a Co-Pilot and a Western Flyer would work for me. I currently have a TriStar and Co-Pilot and will be getting a navy Western Flyer when available. I'd like being able to choose from a 1 night, 2 night, 3 night, etc. bag for the perfect size.
