    Co-Pilot interior pockets size Vs. Pilot

    So a good friend of mine just got a Pilot, and I'm really liking it. I tend to prefer the slightly smaller Co-Pilot, however.

    I am curious about the two pockets in the large main compartment ( Not the exterior zippered pockets on each side of the water bottle compartment )- are they the same size on both bags?


    Thanks!

    The pocket in the Pilot is lager as the Pilot itself is lager and these pockets spann the whole backpannel on each bag. The one with the UV lining is a Co Pilot and the one with the Steel lining is a Pilot:





    Here a 3D Packing Cube in the CP:


    And here a Side Effect in the Pilot:


    Just for refference: the SE is Nordic, the 3D Cube os Steel:


    Hope this helps

    Thank you! Especially for the measurements- I don't think I could have gotten a better answer Big Grin

    For those of you who have BOTH the Pilot and the Co-Pilot, what are you feelings on your favorite?

    I just bought a Pilot, mostly because it would fit my 13" Macbook Pro in a Cache easily. It also holds an Eagle Creek Specter small garment folder in the same space. I keep wondering if I should add a Co-Pilot to my collection, just because it is a bit smaller and therefore lighter, for when I don't want to carry electronics.

    @BWeaves, I had owned a Co-Pilot Black/Solar (!!) and I'd been thinking to whether to switch to Pilot.
    I would love to use my CP more frequently but its small dimension and not able to fit my Work 12" Laptop is really bothersome. On the contrast, I actually love it being small and cute. I just hope it is slightly longer. Hence, I only use it once or twice in a year when I travel. Sadly. But I still love it. That's the hardest relationship, but I think it is normal in TB. Haha.

    All I am saying, I have the same dilemma as yours. Just that, you owned a Pilot while I owned a Co-Pilot. Should we get the CP/P the whole family?
    I don't think I will. At least not for now. I don't see a very good reason to own two almost-similar bag in terms of design/functionality.

    Thanks. I'll think I'll stick with the Pilot and see how often I use it. I think the Co-Pilot may be too small for my travel items and too big for a travel purse.

    Thanks @BWeaves, you just summarize my thoughts on the Co-Pilot.
    I wonder anyone use it as Baby Bag or as Parental Unit or perhaps to supplement Parental Unit. I really like the Bottle Compartment.
