    Espresso, if you are interested in a Black Dyneema/Wasabi or Black/Wasabi Pilot, you should call the store. I returned the ones I ordered (keeping the Nordic/Solar Pilot) and my refund was just processed yesterday, so those bags might be available.... and you don't have to wait til late April.

      Thanks very much for the heads-up, Taminca! That was very nice of you. The Nordic/Solar is a really pretty combo - I've been admiring the pictures posted on the forum. Hope you enjoy your new Pilot.

                Some specific things I was answering on Ravelry about the water bottle pocket:
                The water bottle pocket fits (left to right) a 16 Oz Klean Kanteen with cafe lid, an insulated Contigo, a 24 oz Tervis, and my tall non-insulated Contigo. (sorry don’t know the sizes of the Contigos. Both were bought at Costco). I thought for sure, with the weird handle things on top, the white Tervis and purple Contigo would not fit, but they do. I did have to turn the purple Contigo sideways.

                It is just the right size. Larger than the Co-Pilot, but not enough to make it feel like a different bag. Shown here with Black/Plum Swift and Black/UV Co-Pilot

                Facing the Pilot, the pocket to right of the water bottle pocket has a narrow black ultra suede lined pocket next to the pen/pencil slots…. perfect for glasses!

                On the other side, a large black ultra suede pocket fits an iPad Mini (not in case) perfectly.

                I can't wait to start packing it for my upcoming conference. I specifically want to see if I can get away with only taking the Pilot. I will have to look "professional", travel by plane (thus I will want to bring knitting), and will have to carry stuff with me all day (hotel is offsite from main events).
                Out of curiosity which do you like better the Pilot or the Co-Pilot. I like the small size of the co-pilot however I wonder if I will miss the space for things I like to pack. I have the Synapse 25 which fits everything however with the stricter carry on rules that some airlines are starting to enforce I am wondering if I should start looking into either something like the Pilot or the Co-Pilot. Thanks!
