    Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

    After a year of limited (mostly carry-on) use - this bag is worn, torn and looks terrible. I'm disappointed. The materials scuff and scratch easily - and I have two broken zippers. I do not recommend. My super-cheap roller bag fared far better than this one.

    Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

    I was so excited as I love the great design and how easy it was to pack. On my third usage - the wheel system broke. I contacted TIMBUK2 and was told that this was ACCIDENTAL and they refused to fix. I travel 100,000 miles a year and I know my suitcases. When I brought up to TIMBUK2 that it was NOT accidental but quality related - I got no further. Poor quality and poor CS - and not standing behind their product (when the main selling point in the store was the great skateboard wheels - NOT) Stick with TIMBUK2s Great Messenger Bags -- and leave the travel wheeled bags to companies that stand by their quality and have customer service that cares.

        Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

        I take care of my roller-bag, my airlines ride them hard. After a month, and about 20 trips, this bag is standing up well. It's the right size (never been rejected as too big), is light, identifiable and the half-n-half style is perfect when you are in three hotels in a four day period.

        The only noticeable difference on this Copilot is the 'nylon' (?) is wearing quite quickly on the corners versus my older Copilot which showed no wear at all.

          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...

            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.

              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 .......

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