    First day with my new Co-Pilot

    My new Co-Pilot in the beautiful Black/Iberian color combination arrived Friday night, and first thing Saturday morning I was out the door and on the train to Manhattan with it. I didn't need to carry a lot of stuff, but when I actually packed the bag, I was surprised how much room was left, especially since my first impression was "this bag looks small!"

    I carried the following with me all day, walking all over the city:

    Main compartment on the back:

    -iPad2 in Timbuk2 case
    -medium Iberian Dyneema pouch with iPhone/iPad charger, and headphones
    -Kindle 3 in a neoprene case
    -Time Out New York magazine
    -New York Review of Books newspaper/magazine (folded in half)

    Organizer pockets in the main compartment on the back:

    -glasses case
    -Moleskine City notebook, Metrocard holder

    Left front pocket:

    Tom Bihn Clear Organizer Wallet (attached to key strap)

    Right front pocket:

    -spare car key (attached to key strap)
    -small Iberian Dyneema pouch filled with various toiletries
    -small pack of tissues
    -small hand lotion
    -pens and pencils

    Center pocket:

    -full set of keys (attached to key strap)

    Back slash pocket:

    New York Times

    There was still PLENTY of room left once I put all this in the bag. At lunch, I took off my thin fleece jacket, and folded, it fit in the main compartment of the bag easily. This still left the center compartment empty, other than a set of keys! I did not upgrade to the Absolute Shoulder Strap; the stock shoulder strap worked fine - it was very comfortable, and never slipped off my shoulder. I plan on using this bag every day; I will need to carry a little more than the above, so I'm eager to see how this will work out, but so far, I'm loving it!
