Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

Big Timbuk2 fan! Love my TSA approved Messenger bag... Have purchased two of them!! Thought I would try out a carry on bag.. Love the look and efficient use of space. I've used the bag for a couple trips now - finding the skateboard wheels to create too much drag, the zipper for the middle area sticks requiring some finessing, and wishing there were buttons inside the small pocket so I could simply flip out my toiletry bag... The bag fits soo much better in overheads than my old bag, good upgrade hoping for a 4wheeled glider in the future!

      Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

      Bought the mid-size bag and liked it so much that I bought the small. The SLIM design is really great for overhead bin storage. The clam shell style is great for organizing but I perceive it is more difficult to pack/access than a single compartment. The slightly different "look" makes it easy to identify in a group of similar bags.

        So lightweight for such a large capacity bag.
        Great for long trips.
        Wish there was a bag size in between this one and the next size down.

        Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

        Purchased this bag to replace a European-style bag that is slightly too wide to fit in the more restrictive sizers that the major carriers are now using. All the reviews said that the small copilot would go aboard easily. Beware: it does NOT fit in the gate-area sizers, but it does fit aboard most aircraft except the smaller CRJs. The aluminum frame showed clear scratches after the first trip, but that's probably to be expected.

        Copilot using the Copilot

            Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

            I'm a current commercial copilot that has been using the copilot for 2 months and this is my favorite suitcase ever in my current 12 year career. The skateboard wheels roll effortlessly on all surfaces. I have the small co-pilot which works for a 4 day trip in which I pack 2 additional uniforms, 1 pair of runners shoes, toiletry bag, jeans, sweater, underwear and additional light jacket.
            The best part about this bag is it fits in the overhead bin wheels out on the old Southwest 737-300, the CRJ (regional jet meaning not waiting in the jetway), the E170 and all other domestic aircraft.
            Second best part of the jet is the ability to access the suitcase from the front opening without opening the clamshell zipper.
            The handle seems study so far also. I think I will get 4-5 years of weekly use out of this suitcase .
            For non-work trips I think I would want the medium size.

            It's a great bag, I can fit a lot, love the top pocket and the clam shell design. Wheels are good except on carpet. The only con is the material on the front gets scuffed and dirty easily.

            Comments about Copilot Luggage Roller:

            I've been loyal to Timbuk2 for years now, and I usually use their backpacks for travel and day-to-day. I finally took the plunge with the Copilot and absolutely love it. I bought the Medium sized one to use for week-long trips and long weekends for conferences, work trips, and vacations. It does well for car trips and plane trips so far.

            The suitcase is compact but holds a lot more than it appears, and the pockets make it easy to access everything. For example, the top pocket is great for toiletries and other things you need to access when you're going through airport security. It glides through airports and rougher terrain with its skateboard wheels too, though I know four wheels on the bottom would be beneficial for future models.

            When I travel, I usually take lots of books, clothes (six shirts, two or three pairs of pants, socks, etc.), and two pairs of shoes, which fit well in the bag. The clamshell construction manages the weight well and makes my stuff feel safe. This design isn't for everyone (if you're staying in a small hotel, for example), but I really like how it helps me organize and separate my stuff, including dirty and clean clothes. During plane trips, it frees you up to take a backpack or laptop case and putting the Copilot in the plane's overhead. My laptop (MacBook Pro 15") can fit in the front pocket too.

            I only have three nit-picky points about the bag: the zippers are sometimes difficult to close when the bag is packed. I also had to check the bag and had a hard time finding it at baggage claim when it was upside down. Still, these are minor issues and maybe my own fault.

            Overall, I love the Copilot and would highly recommend it. It helps organize your stuff well, it's durable, it makes your travels easier, and it's super elegant!

              I have the small size and love it. Be ready for the fact that it is clam shell style, so living out of your suit case can be challenging if you leave it on the hotel luggage holder hotels provide (rack is a little small but you can make it work). The handle latch works well. The wheels are awesome and I have though about changing them to the LED lighted kind you can get for skate boards! HA! I did order the large size for overseas travel but it was too large. Wish they had a size between what they currently offer. The large didn't work for me and now I am stuck with another brand that isn't as nice as my TIMBUK2.

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