    Can a standard manila folder fit into a copilot?

    I love my medium cafe bag, but am considering either the copilot or the maker's bag...

    Yes, I know I should get both, but my budget says otherwise!

    Original post which answered a different question than the one being asked: I don't have a manila envelope here to demonstrate with, but it wouldn't fit in a Co-Pilot without a bit of bending. The Co-Pilot is 11.8", a standard manila envelope is 12". A Maker's Bag would be a much better bet for what it sounds like you need!

    Edit to answer the actual question: Oh, when I saw jessmakes' post below I realized I'd been totally forgetting about these folders and assuming you meant envelopes! I just tested and a manila folder will fit in a Co-Pilot but the folder tab is likely to get bent, because it's right up there at the very top of the bag. I think a Maker's Bag would still be a better choice for carrying a folder like this, but it does fit in the Co-Pilot as well.

    I have a bunch of great bags. Favorite color combos include Aubergine/Island, Navy/Solar, Forest/UV, Original Halcyon/Wasabi, Cloud/Viridian.

    I've fulfilled my dream of palindromic-colored nested bags! Navy/Ultraviolet Pilot with Aubergine/Island Side Effect inside: blue purple purple blue. Forest/UV A45 with Aubergine/Wasabi Co-Pilot inside: green purple purple green.

    This is a standard size Manila folder in my maker bag and you can see that size is definitely not an issue. I love my maker bag!

    What an awesome way to answer! Love the photos, very helpful!

    And damn. I really like the water bottle pocket in the copilot!

    Is a Pilot an option for you? It's enough taller that the folder tab should be fine, and it has the water bottle pocket. (I like my Pilot *and* my Co-Pilot *and* my Maker's Bag. I know you said your budget won't allow multiples right now, though, so I won't try to convince you to get more than one!)

    (sigh) I may end up trying both a Co-pilot *and* a Maker's Bag. I think the Maker's Bag is probably going to be a little larger than I'm comfortable with, so the Pilot almost certainly will be too big for me.
