The Brightline B0 (Zero) Slim Flight Bag is the thinnest possible FLEX System configuration. Brightline sometimes calls this bag "The iPad bag" because it works so well as an ultra-thin computing, personal, and technology bag!
The Brightline B0 is simply the Pocket Cap Front (PCF) and the Flat Cap Rear (FCR) modules zipped together. It does not have a separate interior storage space since it is essentially two End Caps connected to each other, but the flexible nature of the modules allows one-half inch to three-quarters inch of flat items to fit inside between the modules.

- Slim Handle

- Interior: 13.5" tall, 10.0" wide, zero inches deep. (34cm x 25cm x 0.0cm)
- Exterior: 14.0" tall, 10.5" wide, 1.75" deep. (36cm x 27cm x 4.5cm)
- Keep in mind that the bag material is flexible, so the size of the interior storage may be able to "stretch" out just a bit in one direction or another. Also keep in mind that over-stuffing your bag can cause seam or material failure, and this is not covered by warranty.
The iPad (or other tablet) is most commonly stored inside the long slip pocket on the back of the Flat Cap Rear module, and then the space between the two modules has the capacity to store a 13" MacBook Pro or a 13" Ultrabook. It is possible to carry both a thin laptop AND an iPad with this configuration.
It is possible to carry the B0 Slim Flight Bag using both a handle and a Shoulder Strap because of a clever clip called the "D3 Clip". A pair of D3 Clips attach to two small loops on the top of the Pocket Cap Front module. And then the handle and shoulder strap attach to those D3 Clips.
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 can store all the cords, cables, chargers, batteries, stylus, and memory cards etc, for all your electronic gear. In addition, you'll have room for your flight timer, fuel testers, E6B, flashlights, compact portable GPS, etc. You’ll also have room for things like your wallet, keys, cellphone, business cards, and even a 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. 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 or documents or a magazine.
There is a second flat half-height panel on the outside surface of the first one 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 B0 Slim Flight Bag comes with a Main Handle and 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. 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 the 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.)
