Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

I received this as a gift for Christmas (2016) and was excited to use it for the first time on an international trip in February 2017.

It worked great during the trip. It rolled easily, with packing cubes it packed everything nicely. The abundance of grab handles was great for taxis/trains/buses. 0 complaints while in use.

Unfortunately it did not make it back home at 100% health. Upon returning to my home airport I picked it up off the luggage conveyor, set it down, extended the handle, and attempted to walk/roll away. To my surprise it dragged behind behind like a sack of potatoes. Upon inspection the RH wheel had been damaged (I assume by the TSA brutes that specialize in luggage hurling).

When I contacted the warranty department the response was, "Sorry, here's a link to buy a new wheel." Honestly, I was expecting Timbuk2 to stand behind their product a bit more.

No, it is not the end of the world to have to buy a new $15 wheel. My concern is having to buy one after every trip where I check this bag. In my opinion, the design of this bag is flawed for checked baggage purposes as the axle/stem is just not strong enough to withstand the rigors of the airline baggage handlers.

As a result, this bag will now be relegated to a carry on only bag for me and I will be looking elsewhere for a bag capable of being checked. It's a shame, as I really thought this bag could be the "one" that could handle both check in and carry on duties for years and years to come. Bummer...

    Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

    This bag holds much more than expected-- and although it's perfect for long weekends, I've used it for week long trips and had plenty of space. Clamshell design keeps things organized. Zippered access from the front means I don't have to open the whole thing and I don't need a separate bag for in flight items I need-- I just pull them out a sweater or iPad or knitting right before boarding. Burgundy color is also nice and makes bag easy to identify at baggage claim. Another solid and pleasing Timbuk2 product.

      Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

      I needed a new carry on and opted for a timbuk2 bag at my father's recommendation. It's only been on one trip, but it held up well on all the bus and train rides I took while abroad. The bag is easy to identify and the handles on the top and the side make it easy to carry up and down stairs. I purchased a small and had more than enough space for 2 weeks worth of clothing and toiletries.

        Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

        I am a pilot and I travel lot. For 25 years I used a metal frame pilot bag, and because of its weigh, 16 pounds empty, I had it parked. The copilot roller seems like a good alternative, looks good, ample capacity and its weigh is acceptable. I packed my uniform and 7 days worth of underwear, socks, t shirts, a pair of jeans, sneakers, a couple of dress shirts and a toiletry case. Every thing fits perfectly . Finally, when I ventured out of my house with the Copilot Roller, to my surprise the bags handles very well. It rolls easily, and it is very stable specially during sharp turns. It navegates through heavy crowds like an ace. It is very ease to lift into the overheads and because of the handles, I can grab it and go.
        A couple of times the bag was exposed to heavy rain and snow, to my surprise every thing inside was dry.
        I have few minor complains on my Copilot Roller.
        I wish it was just a little be lighter.
        I wish it had a clip for my small bag. I rigged a clip which attaches to the top handle. It works OK.
        The zipper snags. When I am in a hurry the zipper doesn't flow easily around the bag. Very minor.
        As a final note, the Copilot had being with me on 3 trips around the country, and so far it is leaving up to my expectations. Will see .......

          Love this luggage. Super cute. Easy to see on the belt, and so light weight. I love the handles on all sides. I should have ordered the bigger one! I purchased a 21 and 22 inch.

            I just got this back in July. The VERY FIRST time I checked it on a trip for Thanksgiving (I didn't want to but the airline forced me), I picked up the bag from baggage claim and the handle was completely broken. The top part that you pull is completely separated from the telescopic portion on one side. Neither the airline nor Timbuk2 would take responsibility for this and I have to pay out of pocket to replace the handle after writing to both of them and waiting several weeks for a reply. Never buying Timbuk2 luggage again after this experience. It's too bad because the bag is great otherwise, but without a functional and sturdy handle I can't trust it when flying.

              Overall great bag! Awesome clam shell design with separating compartments. My biggest and only complaint is that this bag does not have a "J hook" in order to attach smaller tote or carry on bag to the roller. I am a flight attendant and this feature is very handy and almost necessary for my job. Also, many passengers utilize this missing feature as well since it is not only convenient but also allows a very even diteibution of weight between the multiple bags instead of a second bag simply sitting on top of the roller, which makes pulling it much more heavy and strenuous. This would be a very easy feature to add onto future models of the copilot roller and would be so much more appealing to not only the traveling public, but also flight crews around the world. All in all, it's a great bag. Cheers!

                I've been traveling a lot lately so this has gotten a lot of use. It has a great capacity for a good week of clothes. Everything is easy to access. I love the mesh that keeps everything in place- it makes me feel very organized even when I'm not. I absolutely love that you can get to the main compartment through the front. The pocket on top for toiletries is very deep and spacious, you can definitely fit all your toiletries plus more in there. The wheels roll so smoothly and so much better than any bag I've had. The handle definitely feels floppy and not too sturdy however, mine hasn't broken and I haven't been too careful with it. I do wish there was a clip for car keys inside one of the zippered inside pockets but overall a great purchase!

Light, organized, and subtly chic, the Copilot is ready to board.
