CoPilot Messenger

7 customer reviews


The perfect travel companion for long and short trips.

The CoPilot Messenger is a durable and user friendly multi-purpose suit and garment bag. Based on our popular Commuter Range, it has been optimised for aeroplane travel. It has a larger Inner Tube allowing you to maximize luggage space on a weekend away or a 2-3 day business trip.

The CoPilot Messenger is light and easy to handle at the airport and is easily stowed in the overhead locker. The good news is you can also ride, run or walk with your CoPilot!

The CoPilot Messenger (carried with one strap across the shoulder) comes with a 20 litre Inner Tube (gym / utility bag) which can be rolled inside the suit bag or used separately.

It has semi-rigid vertical ribs (made from 100 per cent recycled plastic from Tasmania) which restricts the diameter of the suit bag when rolled, and helps to minimise garment creasing.  It’s this innovative design that differentiates the Henty garment bag range from their poorer cousins – traditional fold in half suit bags.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between the CoPilot Messenger and Wingman Messenger: The main difference between the CoPilot and Wingman is capacity. The CoPilot comes with a 20L Inner Tube compared to the 14L Inner Tube for the Wingman Messenger.

The garment compartment of the CoPilot will take two suits, shirts and two pairs of shoes (plus other items) compared to the Wingman Messenger which is designed to take one suit, shirts and one pair of shoes (plus other items).

The CoPilot uses the same patented rolling technology as the Wingman, but we’ve upgraded the materials used, added an additional external pocket and a leather haul handle to the CoPilot – so it’s better for carrying on an aircraft and other tight spaces when traveling.

Will my laptop fit? The CoPilot Messenger has a removable padded laptop pouch for a 13″ laptop or equivalent, 32.5×22.7×2.4cm (12.78×8.94×0.95 inches).

Is the CoPilot suitable for riding? The CoPilot Messenger is suitable for riding and comes with a bright orange rain cover for weather proofing. We recommend riding with the Wingman/CoPilot Backpack when riding for more than 30 minutes as the shoulder straps provide additional stability.

Is the CoPilot within airline carry-on dimensions: Yes, we’ve designed the CoPilot to be within airline carry-on (cabin) luggage specifications.

Recommended for: We recommend the CoPilot Messenger for anyone who travels and needs to transport professional clothing. The CoPilot Messenger is a good alternative for those who need extra space for their commute, or travel more frequently than they ride.

    I shouldn’t be surprised that your customer service reflects the same commitment to quality that your bags do. I travel a good bit, and am an ex-paratrooper, so I’ve been looking with envy at my active-duty colleagues’ bags in the airport. I finally decided to get one for myself

  2. Frank Tanner

    I received the package yesterday. It looks good….. Is there a place that I can leave a written review for my experience? I just thought that customer service was stellar!

  3. Andrew Ngo

    Great turnaround time and I will continue to spruik your great product for suit wearing commuters and business travellers.

  4. Dominik Klein

    The Product works great – but I did not use it for multiple suits yet (I bought this one because it is lighter than the smaller version). The possibility to hang up both bags separately helps a lot in our smaller locker room at work – it looks very big and can store more than I need, but isn’t difficult to handle.
    I had two questions on this product and Henty answered almost immediately even though they knew I bought it somewhere else.

  5. Ross West

    I’m loving the gear. Just finished a 2 week overseas trip using just the co-pilot Messenger (and 20L Inner Tube). I’ve seen a few getting around the airport now. Well done on the products.

  6. Josef A

    I’ve had this bag since 2017, originally bought for NYC bike commuting and now my go-to travel bag. I’ve lost count of the number of flights, trains, bike rides, and road trips I’ve taken this bag along and it still looks and carries like the day I bought it. Looking forward to many more miles.

  7. Marcus Samuels

    Great bag, very sturdy build and lots of good, intelligent features. The handle fits perfectly over my luggage handle for easy airport wheeling. Appreciated the personal customer service follow up when my first bag wasn’t available, that’s why you go with local Australian companies.
