    hi folks!

    per shiva's request, this video demonstrating that you can carry letter size paper and pads in the co-pilot.

    enjoy!

    Hi Maverick: thanks a ton for posting this! It was really helpful.
    Now I am confused even more: so why did other forum members have difficulty putting in thesis folders and the like into the Co_pilot? Does it matter how stuffed or unstuffed the bag is?

      hi shiva,

      i can't speak to the experience of other users. i understand that if your co-pilot is more full that it might prevent you from placing a thicker pad into there. but if nothing is obstructing the space inside the main compartment of the co-pilot depth-wise, you shouldn't have any problem placing letter size pads and inserts in the co-pilot.

      by the way, i just tried placing a levenger circa notebook that holds letter size paper into the co-pilot and it does fit. this circa notebook holds the letter size circa insert that i placed in the co-pilot in the video. those rings on the spine of the circa notebooks add another 3/4" to the thickness. levenger describes the dimensions of the circa as being 9.25" x 11.5".

      i believe that size a4 paper is 210 × 297 mm (8.27" x 11.69"), and i think that will fit. sorry - i haven't had a chance to grab my size a4 notebook from work. maybe we'll re-shoot this video with that notebook...

        Hey Maverick,
        That is good to know. I use the Circa myself, and do carry tons of it. Mostly though, I just carry letter size paper in a simple plastic folder; so glad to know that will fit in the Co-Pilot. I have been wanting to gift it to a friend, but want to make sure that letter size and A4 will fit in!

        thanks so much for doing this; and I am still waiting for dinosaurs from WF!!!

          A4 paper is a bit tight in the interior of the Co-Pilot if you carry anything thick. I use my old Levenger brief case folders (shown in this post) for carrying letter size paper in the Co-Pilot. But I've only typically carried A4 paper in the outer back pocket. From another thread:

          It's a bit tight with A4 paper in the Co-Pilot. I can put one of those 48 page Rhodia notebooks into the back outside pocket, and I can carry a few of them inside the Co-Pilot, but if you try to pack this fairly full with notebooks you'll come up against the seams of the inside bag, because it's that close to the dimensions of the Co-Pilot that the curvature of seams at the bottom and top impacts the fit of the notebooks. The thing that saves you is the narrower width of A4 paper, so if you're not using thick binders you can stow them inside. I have some Chartwell bound A4 notebooks in at my office that I can try. The size notebook that's really comfortable to use with this bag, and the Ristretto for iPad and Little Swift, is really B5 paper.

          Cheers,
