    Medium or Large Cafe Bag, What is a person to buy

    Hi all,
    I'm sure you've been asked this a thousand times but I can't decide between the MCB and LCB. Any recommendations? I usually carry a book, notebook (the paper kind), IPOD, snack, lunch, water, etc. I don't need it for my notebook. I have an Imago that I really like but want something a little bit smaller.

    Any help is appreciated ....

    I have an Imago and a LCB and I find they comfortably hold the same amount of stuff (although orientation is different). On that basis I would suggest the MCB since you want something smaller...

      I've got Cafe Bags in every size, and the one I tend to grab most often is the medium - it easily holds everything I need most days. I agree with @JLE, the LCB is pretty much the same size as the Imago, and when I carry it, I always seem to overload it and it becomes a bit unwieldy, at least for me. Hope this helps!
      Eat well, travel often.

        I second (or third, our fourth) the recommendation for the Medium. I have both the Large and the Medium, and like nukediver, I find that the one I grab most often is the medium. It carries everything I need, and then some (including my iPad with separate keyboard), but without being too large. I love my Azalea LCB, but I bought it with a specific purpose in mind: carrying my 11-inch MBA in a slim case. You can't go wrong with either one, but I believe the Medium will carry what you want to carry and not feel too bulky to you. Let us know what you choose!

        You might want to purchase the Ultrasuede Strap Cover if you get the Medium. That's on my wish list for my next order (after they debut the new Dyneema color and the new travel accessory), but I believe it makes the strap oh-so-comfy on your shoulder.

            LOne voice for the LCB here. I have both the MCB and LCB and I honestly don't think the LCB looks that much larger. But it definitely holds more. I'd rather have a bag with a little extra room in it than not being able to fit everything *comfortably*.
