• DESCRIPTION •
The B-zero SLIM is
obviously the thinnest possible FLEX SYSTEM configuration. We sometimes
call this bag "The iPad bag" because it works so well as an ultra-thin
computing and personal bag - a "man purse" if you will.
B-zero is simply the POCKET CAP FRONT and the FLAT CAP REAR modules
zipped together. It has no definable interior storage dimensions since
it is just two End Caps put right against each other, but the flexible
nature of the parts allows one-half inch to three-quarters inch of flat
items to fit inside between the modules.
The iPad (or other
tablet) is most commonly stored inside the long slip pocket on the back
of the FLAT CAP REAR, and then the space between the two modules has the
capacity to store a 13" Ultrabook laptop or a thin stack of Manila
folders for documents, or a magazine or two. So it is possible to carry a
thin laptop AND an iPad with this configuration.
SLIM also serves as the obvious starting point for all other
configurations. You can add and remove space as necessary just by adding
different Center Sections.
It is possible to carry the B-Zero
using both a handle and a SHOULDER STRAP because of a clever (and Patent
Pending) clip called the "D3 CLIP". A pair of D3 CLIPS attach to two
loops on the top (or another set of loops on the side) of the bag. And
then the SLIM HANDLE and SHOULDER STRAP attach to those D3 CLIPS. See
the Gallery for photos.
The POCKET CAP FRONT acts like the "hub"
for your entire FLEX System. No matter which configuration you carry
you'll be attaching the POCKET CAP FRONT to one end of your bag. And
it's the "hub" because it holds all the important small stuff and
personal stuff that you want with you no matter what. If you change
configurations, you'll always move the POCKET CAP FRONT to the new
configuration which means you'll always have all this key stuff with
you, without any repacking or reloading.
The POCKET CAP FRONT
module offers a variety of pockets organized into three "main" pockets
and six "secondary" pockets for a total of nine small pockets on the
front panel. In these nine pockets you'll store all the cords, cables,
chargers, batteries, stylus, memory cards etc, for all your electronic
gear. All these important items will finally be separated and organized
like you've always wanted. In addition, you'll have room for your flight
timer, fuel testers, E6B, flashlights, compact portable GPS, etc. Not
to mention space for your wallet, keys, cellphone, business cards,
multi-tool, glasses, pens, markers, and things like Ibuprofen,
Chapstick, bandaids, etc, and even your digital camera. There is also a
flat half-height slip pocket on the inner surface of the module where
you can stow an important document or two like a copy of your medical or
The FLAT CAP REAR module offers two flat pockets
on the outside, and one flat half-height slip pocket on the inner
surface of the module. The primary outer pocket is accessed from the top
and has a cover flap that is secured with Velcro. This where you'll
likely store your iPad (as long as it's not in a thick case), or a
manilla folder or two for some documents, or a magazine. There is a
second flat half-height panel on the outside of the main panel that has a
zipper across the very bottom. If the zipper is closed then this
half-height panel acts like a pocket. If the zipper is open then the
opening at the bottom allows the telescoping tubes of a suitcase or
folding cart to pass through and the panel serves to secure your bag to
those tubes (especially when this FLAT CAP REAR is attached to other
modules to form bigger bags like the B2 COMPUTE, B4 SWIFT or the B7
The B0 SLIM comes with a SHOULDER STRAP, and also a
SLIM HANDLE KIT. (Note that the B0 does not include a MAIN HANDLE - it
The SLIM HANDLE KIT consists of a SLIM HANDLE,
two ADAPTER LOOPS, and four D3 CLIPS. This SLIM HANDLE KIT will be
necessary in order to carry the B0 SLIM since there are no 1-inch
quick-release clips for the Main Handle or SHOULDER STRAP on the B0.
Follow the included instructions and you will be able to install two D3
CLIPS to allow the use of BOTH the SLIM HANDLE and the SHOULDER STRAP.
(The remaining two D3 CLIPS are spares.)
