Comments about the Copilot Luggage Roller

I travel back and fourth from Los Angeles to New York doing Hair and I'm telling you I put this luggage through hell and back and it's still the same quality when I got it not 1 rip, busted wheel, or dent. I can't tell you how many subway stairs this luggage has endured on a daily basis for 3 years straight sometime I kick it down the pen station steps cuz I'm so tired and just kinda curious how much I can put it through AND STILL IT STANDS. Worth every penny love the wheels I think that's biggest thing it gets over the New York street cracks easily without yanking my should. The blizzard didn't even mess up the fabric I mean this luggage is a DREAM For a freelance artist!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Last Minute Luggage and I am Super Happy

Comments about the Copilot Luggage Roller

I was traveling through Seoul, South Korea when my wife had asked me to pick up a few things for her. On the last day, I was there, I went shopping. After picking everything up, I knew that I was going to require another bag. I was on the phone with my wife describing everything that I got for her to make sure there was nothing else needed when I told her I needed to purchase a cheap bag to get them home. As I walked over to the department store side, there was a Timbuk2 area. I quickly Googled if this was a legitimate store to buy from (to ensure there were no warranty issues, which they were), walked over to see what products they had on hand, and there was the 22" Black-Nylon (medium size) Co-Pilot Luggage Roller. After thoroughly checking the luggage, I also noticed it was on sale for 30% off. Buying an American name brand item overseas I knew the prices were higher than usual, but with the 30% discount, I was able to purchase the Carry-On for $10 less than the website stated. The Black-nylon 22" Co-Pilot is an incredible carry-on for anyone that travels a lot. Typically, I travel for only a few days at a time. The construction is solid, and I love the ability to grab it from all sides due to the handles located everywhere. Another excellent function that I have already used is the ability to access one side of the clamshell without opening the entire bag. The top zipper is nice to hold my toiletries and water bottle with no problem. Since I have the Command Messenger bag also, having the ability to slip it on the handlebar of the luggage is a major plus in my book. I am quite stylish with matching pieces (at least that is what I think as I tote around the airport). Another nice feature is the laptop pocket, which fits my laptop perfectly. For domestic or international flights, this bag will always be used. I am super happy with the Co-Pilot. The only thing I am worried about is if something does happen to it, many warranty complaints are found.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Would not buy this suitecase again!

Comments about the Copilot Luggage Roller

I purchased the Copilet Luggage Roller because of the design and durability. I was very disappointed when the wheel assembly broke on my first trip with the new piece of luggage. I returned to the store where I purchased the luggage and unfortunately, I was past their 30 day warranty limit and the store would not return the luggage. They told me to email Timbuk2 as they have a life time warranty. I did email Timbuk2 and they stated "did not fail due to a manufacturing/materials defect. Our warranty does not cover accidental damage nor wear and tear"....wear and tear when used for one trip. Anyways, I wanted to share my experience so you don't waste your money like I did.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

XL Copilot

Comments about the Copilot Luggage Roller

We bought this to replace a large roller from another manufacturer. The XL is plenty big, but I like the fact that it has a more narrow profile that our previous bag. Clothes just fit it in better and the narrow profile helps you maneuver through crowded airports. The bag itself is a little heavy but it's well made. I also like the clamshell design because my wife and I get to "pick a side" and it keeps things organized while traveling.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great Carry On

I ordered this when it was on sale as I needed a new carry on for both business and personal travel. I really like the front pocket for its ease of access. I also really like the compartments which make it easy to separate items or if I'm sharing with my partner or one of my kids. The color also makes it stand out. I wish the wheels spun through as sometimes I have had a few hiccups navigating this through the airport.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Seems really flimsy

very flimsy construction. The handle mechanism has much more play than the 10 year old bag I'm replacing. I would have returned it but timbuk2 tricked me on the shipping charges and I didn't want to pay shipping twice to return it. I looked at warranty policy and trust they will replace the handle mechanism if it fails . Hope I am right. Also there is no easy way to attach briefcase or backpack- most rollers have a clip or strap but this doesn't seem to- this should be standard.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

I still haven't decided

I've used the Copilot Medium suitcase on two business trips so far. First, I think it looks nice and is very roomy. I especially like the small compartment near the top handle, where I can put liquid toiletries or other things I want easily accessible for TSA screenings. I also like the side access panel, so I can easily change clothes before my flight, when I'd rather not wear my business meeting clothes from the day. It's a nice well made bag, and may be too big for a 2 night stay. My biggest issues with the case are in the sections that are separated from each other, and isolated with zippers. I spend too much time opening and closing zippers. The compartment idea sounds good, but it's not so practical. Also, the main zipper doesn't move as freely as I'd like. Lastly, the handle doesn't fit well through the loop on my Timbuk2 messenger/laptop bag. I struggle to get the messenger back over the handle of the Copilot, so I have only one thing to carry going through the airport. Lastly, I got a pretty good deal on the bag, but it went on sale for a lower price 2 days after I made my order, and Timbuk2 would not do a price adjustment for me. Bad customer service, if you ask me.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend

I love this roller bag!

I do a lot of international travel and this roller bag is fantastic for hand luggage. It meets all the requirement of international flights. I also love the color. Wish it was bit lighter.

Purchased one and now my husband wants one

I purchased this for a trip cross-country and an extended stay in Japan. The thing I love the most is that there is a handle on every side so lifting this case is really easy. Everything is sectioned nicely so I have a spot for everything. I bought one because my old carryon had finally broken down and now my husband wants to replace his with one as well. I don't expect to buy another carryon bag for a long time.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Best luggage I've had

I needed a small suitcase that would be a carry on. This fits extremely well in the overhead without a problem. The one thing that I absolutely loved about it was when I was walking through the airport it makes no noise at all. It is the smoothest piece of rolling lugged I've ever had. I also got a weeks worth of clothing inside this and was set for my trip all week long. It was amazing what could all fit inside.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
