    I have a co-pilot for almost a year and have used it in a number situations - as a travel bag/personal carryon item and as a daily bag. It works well for both situations. It holds much more than you would think just by looking at it and it is amazingly versatile. The one complaint I have is that you can just barely fit a file folder ( standard A4 size) in it. While the bag is not designed for this, it's form factor is such that it would be really
    nice to be able to use it to hold a few folders along with my iPad or MBAir 11 in a cache. Another 1/2 inch in length would make it ideal. My quest for the perfect bag continues....

    If there are more Co-Piloters in the house, I'd like to know about your experience.

    I am sure that the Holidays brought plenty of that handsome bag in many more hands.

    Don't have one, yet. :)

    I've had the Co-Pilot since it was released last year and can honestly say that's its my #1 go-to bag that I have! Started using it in my motorcycle's panier when I traveled and now use it when I need a personal carry-bag for day to day activities, quick business meetings, and while traveling. An excellent design and totally reminiscent of Tom Bihn's overall qualitative design for form and function.

    And next year, if they are really really good, your loved ones can get a pencil case to hold their sporks.

    sporks fit easily so I assume the spork case does too.

    So, as I type this, I am in a local coffee shop, eating a muffin with a plastic fork (I know!). This is a great coffee shop, and I like to patronize it because the owners and the people who work for them are incredibly nice. However, the muffin is kind of not that good, but what's worse is that they do not have any real flatware here. (Another gripe is that they don't have real glasses for water, and they default to paper cups whenever you order tea.) I just spent a butt-load of money at Amazon yesterday but one thing I am definitely planning on getting soon is a bunch of sporks that I can just throw in all my bags. We try not to carry our silverware from home because we end up losing it, and my hashibako holds only hashi and a spoon, which is not useful for all foods, like muffins. And before anyone says anything about how eating muffins with a fork is weird, I also eat croissants and bar cookies with a fork, which is way more weird. It's also only recently that I've been able to eat hot wings without using a knife and fork, opening up--as you might imagine--whole new worlds of dining convenience.

    Oh, and to bring this back to the Co-Pilot: I, uh, love how easily sporks fit into them.

    I've found that food does taste much better with actual utensils rather than the flimsy plastic disposable ones :-)

    You all motivated me to bring my spork to work today. So much nicer than the plasticware here!

    I have a set of bamboo utensils in the Clear Organizer Pen/Pencil Pouch -- fork, knife, spoon, chopsticks. It's not trouble to carry it around and I frequently forget to obtain or quickly break plastic utensils, so it's extremely useful.

    Drat - now I'll need another pencil case for the Eddie Bauer spork I bought a couple years ago. The spork has a nasty habit of puncturing ziploc snack baggies. Something to add to my Santa list...

    The spork love in this group had made a convert of me: as of today, I am the proud new owner of a Light My Fire spork! They were selling them for $2.99 at the Eddie Bauer outlet store: it was as if they followed this thread and knew I was coming. :D I got one in a cheerful orange (or maybe it's the mango yellow that you mentioned, LiLin); and a second one in green as a stocking suffer for my son. (Who is also getting an Olive Brain Bag, so the green will match.) It's good to know that it will fit in the Pen/Pencil OP, as I've got one waiting in the wings.

    Wow, thanks everyone for sharing their "spork love." I always take my own beverage bottle with me, and use that for my chai or passion tea lemonade or whatever when I'm out in the big city. (Which in my case is anything over 5,000 people!) I also wash and re-use plastic utensils at home (the rare times I use them), and I even wash out plastic zip-loc bags and reuse them as well. But for some reason, I never even thought about carrying a spork. Now that's next on my list!

    Yes, quite nicely. I have an Azalea/clear pen/pencil pouch and have 4 sporks in there right now! It could hold a ton more if I were so inclined.
