I got my Pilot yesterday - Black/Wasabi. It's early, but my first impression is that it's wonderful. It's exactly the size I hoped for to use as my work bag. I have the Co-Pilot, and it's juuuust a bit too small to hold letter sized paper. The Pilot fits those papers with no problem. My sense is that I'd use a horizontal Freudian Slip if one that fits becomes available (hint hint TB! :) ) It also fits my current water bottle (a Liberty Bottleworks like the Tom Bihn ones, but this is from a local radio station). I've put on the red cord pulls and like how it adds just a bit of color to the black bag. Not sure if I'll keep 'em on, but for now I'm going with it.
As will all my other Tom Bihn bags, this one is wonderfully made and thoughtfully designed.
Well done Tom Bihn and Crew!
