    Questions about the Ristretto for 13" Macbook

    Hi all!

    I've been searching for the perfect bag for years and finally found myself here. I love the look and quality of the Tom Bihn bags—especially the Ristretto— but I have a few questions.

    I'm looking for something lightweight and small that will fit a combination of the following or all of it:
    • 13" Unibody MacBook
    • iPad 2
    • Canon T1i body with small lens (50 mm)
    • One other small to medium size lens

    Will my Canon body + lens fit in the front zippered compartment?

    Any other suggestions that meet my needs? I prefer a messenger bag but they are hard on the neck/back. I like the Ristretto because it can be carried cross-body. Backpacks make it more difficult to get to the camera quickly. Also, I want this to be an everyday bag but I am headed to the UK soon so I also need if for traveling. If I don't have my MacBook with me will this size seem big for my iPad/camera scenario?

    Thoughts? Suggestions? Photos? All will be appreciated!
