@Taminca, I bow to your creativity in depicting different scenarios! :) Thank you for sharing another set of great photos. I have now comfortably carried my SE in the upper Daylight pocket thanks to your post, and you have likely enabled more TB purchases with your past photo sets.
@Taminca, I'll have to agree with NWhikergal on your pictures. Now I'm wanting the Daylight even though I just placed an order. This forum may ending up costing me a lot of money. (But it's well worth it😊)
Thanks for more great photos of the DLBP, Hawaii. It is really helpful to see it next to the WF and WF packing cubes.

1. here it is inside/out. Appears to be lined with steel dyneema
top pocket only goes down part way. Lower pocket goes to bottom of bag.
As I said earlier, this is intended for DH "personal item". First pic shows what his minimum items are:
1. pacsafe 100 that is his EDC containing dpi pens, pill case, comb, iPhone 5, reading glasses, and mini flashlight.
(fyi keys and wallet are usually in his pant or jacket pocket)
2. ipad air
3. bose noise-cancelling headphones
everything fit in with room to spare! so he can add his wallet to the bag for going through security.
this should give an idea of depth of top pocket area:
I placed the headphones in the top pocket, the pac safe and jacket in the main area, and the iPad air in the outside pocket.
Note the headphone case fit either horizontally or vertically in top pocket.
THe iPad air (or iPad 2) did fit horizontally in the top pocket, but quite snuggly. It easily fit vertically.
Ok a few more "what fits" pix:
not sure if anyone would want to, but the co-pilot would easily fit.
I actually have quite a few eagle creek packing cubes as I know many other Bihnions may have.
First few pix show full size original type cube. It did fit horizontally in the bottom of the bag if not completely full. It easily fit vertically.
and specter half cube

Hawai your pictures are great. You and taminca make the time till mine will arrive (hopefully on Monday) much more bearable. I think this is the first time that my TBAS is event to be called bearable.
Your pictures help getting a feeling about the Daylither. I think it might be an overkill using the Co-Pilot as a bag-in-bag here, but I am happy to see, that I could. I use it sometimes in my larger Backpacks in that way and knowing that I could (if in a hurry) change backpacks fast and easy by just transfairing the Co-Pilot: what is not to like?
Thanks for the information on the pockets. I was under the impression that both pockets went all way down like the pockets from TS!
So much to catch up!
Your ability to work with multiple scenarios is admirable!
From what I have seen you do with a single pouch, I would love to see what you would do with a bag like the NFTD that have packing cubes & dividers plus all the existing pouches, sacks and organizers for you to play with!
So much to catch up!
