    Small Cafe Bag and Aeronaut 30 …?

    Does anyone know, will an underpacked Small Cafe Bag fit into the end pocket of an Aeronaut 30 okay? I assume it would take a little squishing of the material, but will it fit?

    As I've mentioned elsewhere, right now I pack a Side Kick with my iPad Mini and its keyboard, maybe my e-reader and a few odds and ends and stow it into the Aeronaut thusly … as such I can one-bag it through airports, taxis, stations, etc., but if I want to entertain myself on the journey I can pop it out to use as a personal item on the airplane, train, etc.; and can also use it as a little daily carry once I reach my destination if necessary. I'm wondering, though, if a small cafe bag might not be more comfortable and more versatile for the latter use case.

    Just wondering! Thanks y'all, hope you have a great holiday season! ❤️

    Why not just pack it last and flat over the top of the contents inside the main compartment?

    You'd be surprised what you can cram in on top of everything once you've packed up all your other stuff.
    I own a LOT of Tom Bihn bags, but here are the ones I'm using right now:
    Everyday Carry: SK
    Hiking Daypack: Cambiata

    Car Travel: SK, T45, MT
    ​Travel: CP, TS, SZTSB


      Yes, it will fit. A SCB is the size of two SKs put back to back, so if you can easily fit your SK in the pocket, a SCB will fit too.
