    One more vote for the PCSB. It may look large but it fits perfectly into a seatback pocket, is squishable, less expensive than some of your other options, AND is available in bright colors which ensure you don’t leave the plane without it. It’s my go-to use.

    I used my SCB on my last flight, stuffed into my S25. Once seated, I pulled the SCB out of the S25. I also used the SCB at my location for an afterhours tote. In the main compartment, carried an iPad Pro 9.7, Bose QC35 (in Bose case), a 20-oz plastic water bottle, and a bunch of snacks.

    I didn’t want to have the SCB hanging directly in front of me. I purchased an REI strap that made a closed loop and looped that through the SCB strap. On the other end of the loop, I attached a hero clip which I then hung from the seat pocket and nudged the SCB under seat. This way the SCB was out of the way and when I wanted something out of it, I pulled on the REI strap to pull the SCB up to me.

    I use my hero clip like that too! I just hook the hero clip on the shoulder strap though - the bag can just sit under the seat and I can grab it easily. :-) Not to mention coming in super handy in the bathroom later when there was only one small hook on the door (for my A30) and I really didn't want to be trying to dodge my purse while wearing it while I peed. lolol.

    Hi @jessiew,

    I think its possible to use the PCSB(packing cube shoulder bag), if you can stash your A5 notebook, iPad Mini, and Kindle Paperwhite in one half of the PCSB (this involves turning them vertically, which should work unless your A5 notebook is particularly large). Then youre left with about 8x 5.75x3 left for the headphones, and I recall @KathyH saying in another thread that (case about 8x6x1.5 - ish), for the QC 35 how much space exactly depends on the dimensions of your A5 notebook. A Moleskine is narrower. I was estimating with a Leuchtturm1917. My Clairefontaine would stress this more since its taller and wider. Other headphones would fit.

    Maybe someone else who has the QC35 and the PCSB can test this for you.

    I havent tried to used the new offset clips of the current PCSB on a plane, but if nothing else, you could rig this so that its shoulder straps suspend around the tray. Again, I bet someone else could test this (or maybe has already done so!)



    Size 3 travel stuff sack should work. I do like the packing cube shoulder bag for general usage, so you might want to try it anyway!
