I have collected a lot of bags over the years. Ask any photographer and they will tell you they have yet to find the perfect bag. I do have a lot of camera bags, but I also have quite a few all purpose shoulder bags and backpacks. One of my favorite brands is Tom Bihn. I have reviewed their pouches and the Synapse 19 backpack previously. You'll even see one of the Tom Bihn padded pouches in the video below, although I forgot to call it out as one of theirs.
One of the downsides of collecting a lot of bags is I'll use one for a long time and then when I find something new that might fit my needs just a little better, the old bag sits on a shelf. One thing I like to do from time to time is dig an old bag out of the closet and put it to use again. This is what happened to the Co-Pilot. Several weeks back I decided to start using it again and just after a day I remembered why I loved this bag so much. It's extremely versatile and checks off a lot of the boxes for why I choose a bag in the first place. It's compartmentalized, it can store a lot, and it's durable. I've been caught in the rain with this bag, it's been shoved under airplane seats and even after tons of use, it still looks good.
I posted a video of the bag on YouTube and linked it below for your convenience. It's a bit long and I use the word "durable" a lot. :) If you use any of Tom Bihn's products, I think the same word will come to your mind as well. In the video I say that the Olympus PEN-F would not fit when I was demonstrating the large back pocket of the bag. What I meant is it wouldn't fit well in the large sewn in pocket, but it fits fine as I go on to say, in the back of the bag.
As of this writing the co-pilot is still available on the Tom Bihn website and retails for $140. Click here if you want to check it out.
