    @hamiltee for pictures of the Steel/UV Pilot with some interior shots of the UV, check the pictures gochicken posted yesterday to the The New Pilot Available for Pre-Order in January 2014 thread.

      Trevorro, has there been any change in your opinion about using the Dyneema Pilot with Cache for your 15" MBP with Retina Display? Is the fit truly practical for everyday use? Because your post is really tempting me to buy the exact same setup for my 15" Retina. The pocket arrangement is just so much better than the Cadet, particularly the water bottle pocket. Is it still "nothing but breezes?"

Much to my pleasant surprise, it fits perfectly (things are tight in there for sure, but nothing is visibly stretched), and the rail system works like a dream!

        I no longer carry my RMBP 15" every day - I'm an iPad Pro guy now. But whenever I do haul the Pilot / MPB combo it's breezy as it was when the bag was brand new!

          I received my Cache for the new 2016 15" Touch Bar rMBP the other day, and thought I'd upload a few pictures to show it in the Pilot. I think it fits just fine. I really dig this setup. I know these are subtle variations of each other, but I like being comprehensive. The laptop is in the Cache in each of these pictures.
