    I generally clip/tether (or just "tuck") my smaller organizers. One exception was when I was using a Side Kick as hybrid organizer/daypack inside a larger mostly-unorganized bag. In that case, I had...

    For what it's worth, I only used it in "briefcase" mode for EDC, for similar reasons. :)

    Welcome to the forums, @Abe21599!

    I have moved back and forth among a few TB bags for EDC.

    I really liked the Stowaway for this kind of thing; I could generally fit my EDC in the front and...

    Welcome to the forums, @jeffeby!

    For what it's worth, I see many older Caches go by on eBay and some on the unofficial Tom Bihn BST Facebook group. The 16-inch MBP should fit in the same sleeves...

    First pass at a PCSB "FS"

    I posted in the wish list that I thought I wanted a Packing Cube Shoulder Bag with some internal organization, and then I posted that I probably just wanted a PCSB "Freudian Slip". After thinking for...

    Indeed, welcome to the forums, @swhme!

    As regards width, the Pilot is a slightly larger version of the Co-Pilot, which would hopefully address your issue with file folders and the like. The larger...

    They look gorgeous. :)
    On my screens, the color of the "selector" for Constellation Blue looks very dark, much closer to the selector for Deep Blue than the photos of their respective fabrics.

    PCSB in Coyote Halcyon 200! (I'd probably prefer Halcyon 400 and Recycled 630, but Coyote 200 looks like a shade I'd prefer to Coyote 210.)

    I have put a couple of different 14-inch laptops in a DLBP, but I don't have any 15-inch laptops. That said, it looks like any Cache size up to 15C (which would hold a 2016 MBP 15 or MBP 16) should...

    I did receive my DLBC today, and my X1 Yoga in an off-brand neoprene sleeve fits very well. I'm planning to use this as my EDC for a while, and maybe as a packable walking-around bag for travel.
