    I like my Pilot as a carry on, so you might like the Copilot since it is smaller.

    I guess that will be the next TB bag I buy once I start feeling the addiction

    I have a MCB and while I love it, I wouldn't use it as an in-flight bag because it's pretty floppy. I like using my Co-Pilot...it's compact, has a lot of compartments and a GENIUS water bottle holder and it tucks nicely under the seat. I then use it as a conference bag once at my destination. I love that little thing. It might be a little too big for what you carry and if that's the case, I agree with the PCSB suggestions.

    So, if you really do want to buy a new bag, my recommendation would be the cafe bag, since it's one of the most versatile bags around. It also does great inside other bags.

    To answer the OP's question, the best bag is generally the one you already have. Like, I get looking for an excuse to buy a new bag, but this isn't some highly specialized task that needs a highly specific bag.

    wouldn’t the 210 Ballistic also be a little more “stiff”, and maybe hold shape better
    Maybe? The two fabrics feel fairly similar to me. We'll find out when it's released!

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but wouldn’t the 210 Ballistic also be a little more “stiff”, and maybe hold shape better when the bag was less filled compared to the Halcyon?

    Is that right?

    Like I said correct me if I’m wrong, that could be just with the more 525 or 1050 ballistics

    I’m waiting on the new PCSB to come out as well - ready to order one

    Why would 210 ballistic be more desirable than Halcyon?
    Colors! In my case, that's bright cheerful colors. I can't decide between grass and viridian. Plus a solid color changes the feel of the bag.

    I tend to like shades of blue like that, although I think anything blue or grey will work just fine for me. After all, I recently travelled just fine with a burgundy bag!
    Yes, Dawn is like a periwinkle though apparently TB had a different 'periwinkle' cordura(?) a long time ago...

    The 210 ballistics are newer than the 200 halcyons. As @Cristina said, many of us are just interested in geeking out over the other colour options. Also, the 210 ballistics don't have the white grid weave like the 200 halcyons do... so some folks might like the solid colours more.
