    But what color would orange go well with? Not black, as it would look Halloween-y, but maybe navy? Steel? The various greens? Inquiring minds are extremely curious. (Not that I like orange, but heynurse has fot me thinking about a lovely tangerine dyneema).

Also, I can transfer my 3D cube into one of my small cafe bags on the weekend and instantly change from work mode to weekend mode. Those 3D cubes are so handy!
    Oh I know, I LOVE those things! Thank you so much for the tip, I will pack one up for use in my new Co-Pilot! Yeah I bought one 3D Cube and then had to buy a few more, they are just wonderful. I use one for a First Aid Kit in the bathroom, and one for drawing supplies, and one for a travel toiletries bag, and one for make-up (I'm pretty low maintenance on that score, all my beauty stuff fits in one cube). Clearly I need to get some more, especially if they fit perfect in the Co-Pilot pocket!

    Mine arrives today as well! I am so excited! I love that hour after the bag arrives where you get to sit there and assign everything a spot and get it all just so.

    I wish our UPS came in the morning, but I'm guessing I won't get it until 5pm or so.

    Oh heck, facilitate away!

    I'm going to put them on my Christmas list. Or alternately, buy a bunch for people for Christmas and then sort of sneak a couple in for me.

    Tee hee, darbs! I also love my LCB but wasn't the #1 fan of the Imago (probably because of me, not it...I tend to carry weird, oddly sized kid-like things. If I carried an ipad or computer at all times, might have worked better for me)...but I sure do like my Co-pilot! I also had written it off as a bag I didn't need or want....Jest sayin Of course you could wait and see if it'll be out in Navy/wasabi or Wasabi dyneema (gasp!)....

    I am a husband and I can proudly announce that I display my computers AND my TB bags! I have to mask my Bihn Acquisition Syndrome (BAS) a bit better, though. You-know-who is noticing some new Dyneema of late...



    Someone please help me!
    I have BAS (Bihn Acquisition Syndrome)!!

    I just want you guys to know that I hate this thread. I had TOTALLY written off the co-pilot as a bag I didn't need. I mean I've got the LCB and the MCB and another bag kind of like the co-pilot from another company. I even tried out the Imago and wasn't a huge fan. Now I stare at the co-pilot daily thinking maybe I do need it. You ladies are killing me!!!

    Lani, my Tom Bihn Bags give me so much joy, sometimes I display them.

    For example, I lined up 3 Swifts and one Swift ancestor in front on my bedroom closet.
    The Swifts are usually put away inside the closet. I have all my yarn and needlework related books as well as a stash of small canvas in them.

    I only do the lineup when I am ready to start a new canvas work.

    Our place is a one bedroom and space managment is very challenging.

    My husband displays his computers, I can display my TB bags.

    So what do you think about the Travel Money Belt as part of business casual dress?

    I got to this conversation SO late in the game! I wanted to add that I use my Co-Pilot as a combo briefcase and purse as well. I carry a couple of folders each day, sometimes my iPad, and of course my travel coffee mug. I've tried other bags for a switch-up, but nothing works better for the workday than this bag. My only wish is that it were about 1" wider and taller for those folders, whose corners keep getting permanently bent.

    I'm 5'0" and it definitely looks more like a briefcase on me, but that's fine. I find it indispensable because of its organization. Anyhow, the reason I'm posting now is to comment that the 3D organizer cube fits perfectly into one of the inner pockets in the main compartment. I put all my purse-like items in there, e.g., folding hairbrush, hand sanitizer, nail file, etc. I can just grab that and my wallet (clipped into the front phone pocket and head out at lunchtime. Also, I can transfer my 3D cube into one of my small cafe bags on the weekend and instantly change from work mode to weekend mode. Those 3D cubes are so handy!

    Since the UV interior wasn't available when I got my Co-Pilot, I bought a plum 3D cube and plum keystraps to make up for the lack of color splash inside.

    Our place is tiny, so he has a point, I thought it would be better to skip the summer order which meant missing out on the Little Swifts in the yummy new colors,

    But... he needs a new belt and I also could use one that is not made overseas and falls apart every 2 years.

    Do you think the Travel Money Belt would look ok for business casual dress? I am also thinking of replacing his made overseas shoes, which are not doing his feet any favor, by suede Soft Star shoes?

    What do you all think?

    I also need the Neena paper to fill my Field Journal Notebook and a couple of things in UV I don't already have.
