Tom Bihn Co-Pilot Bag – WanderGear Wednesday
Now that I’m the proud owner of an Asus Eee netbook, I needed an appropriately-sized bag to carry it around in.
Let me start by saying that I’m partial to Tom Bihn bags. And there are several reasons for this. One, they are based in the Seattle-area and I do like to support local companies. Second, the vast majority of their products are made in the U.S.A. That’s cool, isn’t it? (And they drive better than Chevys!).
But most importantly they make excellent well-thought out and tested products.
The Co-Pilot Personal Carry-on Travel Bag is just the right size for my netbook but has plenty of space for other items. In addition to the main compartment, there’s a zippered pocket that holds a small water bottle and another suede-lined pocket for my cell phone and digital camera. The suede prevents them from getting scratched up.
The zippers on the bag are waterproof, so even if I’m running around in the Seattle rain, I don’t have to worry about my electronics getting wet.
The overall dimensions of the Co-Pilot are just 12″ x 10″ x 5″ which makes this an easy bag to carry onto a plane or to meetings.
There are also easy accessible holders for pens AND it comes with a key clip (always one of my favorite features!). The back of the bag has a flat pocket for paperwork.
It’s really a terrific bag for carrying a netbook (or even and iPad) and comes in a variety of colors. (Psst, great gift idea!)
