    Best option is to probably search for specific laptops or maybe dimensions. I know my T460 with laptop sleeve (non-cache) doesn't meet the dimensions for a pilot but it fits.

    Having owned both materials, here's my feedback.


    The WF is really more luggage than EDC but it can definitely play that role part time. OOTB it doesn't provide much organization (no pen slots,...

    Curious if a EC medium packing folder (17x12) fits nicely in the back meaning it doesn't push up against the zippers near the top. With the S25, it would press against the zippers near the top.

    Laptop Charger (smaller ~65w type)
    Side effect
    Small notepad
    Minor misc stuff (phone, keys, etc)

    I think the weight difference between the two is negligible. If you don't like floppy backpacks, you will want the ballistic. I switched to ballistic from halcyon for that specific reason.

    Great question. I have a black halcyon/island version.

    Really boils down to how much/big your stuff is (toiletries, laptop, gear, etc). For me, a 2nd pair of shoes was too much. For others (as posted here), not a problem.

    Shoes are usually the problem area. The WF could handle that no problem minus the shoes. The TS would have a better chance especially if you pack the sneakers.

    I'd agree with this and also add its lack of organization limits its EDC use. For 1-2 night trips, its a great combo bag. I wish the front was more like the Cadet which would make it a better EDC bag...

    Glad they worked for you.

    I've noticed that effect also. One minor side effect though is when I'm having calls with someone, I don't always notice the background noise they are hearing.
