View Full Version : Storing a computer mouse?

How do people carry along the mouse for their computer in TB bags, particularly ones that don't have an available pocket? I have a bluetooth Logitech mouse and was considering a mini Q-Kit or mini Ghost Whale. Do folks know if a cordless mouse would fit conveniently in one of those?

I have a travel friendly mouse from Microsoft that straightens out when you are not using it so that it's easy to pack or carry. I usually just throw it in one of the pockets of my bag and it's good to go. Highly recommend.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190327/cda299f6974b6fbbe944c4ac1f4071db.jpg

I confess, if I know I need to transport my laptop and mouse and headphones, etc. I pick my Pilot, because it has pockets to corral all that stuff.

I'm not sure about those two pouches, but it should fit in a cubelet.

I have the same mouse.
A mini Q kit is miles too small, as is any of the mini organiser pouches. The mouse goes in but the zip cannot close.
I don't have a mini ghost whale as yet but the mouse fits in a small, though there is a lot of wasted space at the end.
I think the cubelet works better as the leftover space is more useable for other small bits and bobs like phone charging cable etc.

I have a similar Microsoft Arc Touch to Ivy-J, only mine is the Bluetooth one. You flatten it out to turn it off, so in it's 'off' state, it pretty much goes anywhere. Pilot - Wider right hand pouch, next to the pen slots, in the right hand pocket. I've got my business card case in the same pocket, and the mouse tucks in behind that. DLBC - Goes in one of the split pockets in the front. WF - Either the lower front horizontal pocket, or last time I used it, I had all my extras corralled in an SE, so the mouse rode in the 'front' pocket of the SE.

This mouse is only used when travelling, as I use a full-sized wireless keyboard/mouse combo at home, with the Logitech unifying receiver connected to my laptop's docking station.

I keep my MS Arc Mouse in a mini padded organiser pouch.
A tight fit but you just need to slide it in bottom first

I don't have a travel mouse but do often take my main "use at desk" laptop mouse - a Logitech MX Master 2S, so not the smallest! - to London with me when I know I'm likely to be using my laptop at a hot desk, plugged into a big(ish) external monitor. Rather than just drop it into the A30, I put it in a Viridian Cubelet to protect it. It will also - I've just discovered - fit in a "small" Q-Kit.

The smallest mouse I've used recently was a Logitech Anywhere MX, which came with its own protective cover pouch for travel purposes, being targeted at such uses, and will also - just - fit into a "mini" Q-Kit (just tried it). Years ago I had a (now sadly defunct) Macally wired micro mouse which was extremely tiny - < 2 inches long, just over an inch wide - which was ideal for travel except for the trailing USB lead, and would certainly have fitted almost anywhere!

...just throw it in whatever bag you're carrying your laptop in?

In a small Snake Charmer, along with cables, adapters, etc.

My Logitech bluetooth mouse (Anywhere MX) came with a pouch and was inexpensive enough, so I'd just use that and throw it into the bag. But, now, when I'm trying to corral my computer items, it goes into a small snake charmer with the other electronics.

another vote for the SSC... I put the main laptop cords/power brick in one side and a mouse in the other, along with my bluetooth headset & charger (in a mini q-kit)

Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkThat's Sitka, a discontinued colour of halcyon. It's a vivid green with blue undertones.

I love that! Wish they made that color still so I could purchase!

Sitka is one of my favorites too! If you keep your eye on eBay and on the swap thread here, occasionally a Sitka item will show up. I didn't start buying TB stuff until around the time Sitka was discontinued, and now I have several Sitka items. (Actually one of my first TB purchases was a Sitka Large Shop Bag and I didn't like the color, so that shop bag went to the friend who turned me on to TB. Later I decided I had been very wrong about Sitka and now I have another Large Shop Bag in it as well as several other things!)

Thanks for this post! I ordered a small Q-Kit for this reason...

I keep my Arc Touch mouse in a 3DOC, along with headphones, charge cables, and battery pack when travelling. It gets clipped to the seatback pocket with carabiner clips inflight so I can reach everything without taking my WF out from under the seat, and I leash it with long key straps to one of the O-rings so it never gets separated from my WF.

My EDC is a small FS in half the front pocket of the WF, I just keep the mouse in one of the pockets.

The solution I ended up going with is a Mini Ghost Whale (in Dawn). The fit is perfect for my mouse and I like that clipping it to one of the attachment points keeps it readily accessible near the top of my Brain Bag.

Actually, there are a lot of mini bags you can find on Amazon or eBay.
