The Brightline B2 Compute is a 19 pocket flight bag made up from Front and rear pockets 2 end pockets & a 2" centre section zipped together . Part of the Brightline Flex system
The B2 COMPUTE is the FLEX System "computer bag" and is perfect for anyone who wants a small, efficient way to carry their 13" laptop along with all the associated essentials. Or, it can serve as a compact document bag, or a lunch bag, or it could even carry a single change of clothes.
The B2 consists of the POCKET CAP FRONT, CENTER SECTION 2, and FLAT CAP REAR.
The CS2 provides, you guessed it, two inches of storage depth, but keep in mind that there is also two thin flat storage areas BETWEEN the three modules. (Remember, it is a soft bag so it can expand slightly in every direction.)
This configuration will very commonly be used to carry a 13" Laptop along with an iPad (or other tablet) and some additional documentation. But it might also serve as an ultra narrow VFR flight bag if you happen to have the compact in-the-ear type of headset, or a headset where the ear cups fold flat. It's also a great commercial carry-on bag, or an outstanding daily personal bag (also known as a "man purse").
The other great thing about this bag is that it is actually TWO bags. Not only is it a B2 COMPUTE, but you can also build a B0 SLIM by removing the center section and zipping just the two End Cap modules together.
Storage on the B2 starts with the POCKET CAP FRONT: 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 your passport.
Next, comes the CS2 (2-inch Center Section), which is designed to hold 13" laptops or a small collection of documents (or both). (Many, but not all, 14" laptops will also fit.) The CS2 can be accessed by unzipping the two zippers to open the entire rear panel, giving access to the gray interior. There are two adjustable Velcro "stopper straps" which serve to limit how far the cover is able to pivot open - thus keeping the cover from unintentionally flopping all the way open and dumping everything out.
And finally, 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.
The B2 COMPUTE comes with a Main Handle (not supplied with the B0), a Shoulder Strap, and also a Slim Handle Kit.
The Slim Handle Kit consists of a Slim Handle, two Adapter Loops, and four D3 Clips. The Main Handle or the Shoulder Strap can be attached to the CS2 by use of the quick release clips. If you convert the B2 to a B0 by removing the CS2, then the D3 Clips and the Adapter Loops can be installed so that you can use BOTH the Slim Handle and the Shoulder Strap at the same time with the B0. Note: it is not recommended to carry the entire B2 COMPUTE with the Slim Handle kit, especially since the (much stronger) main quick-release clips are there for the Main Handle.
