    Nexus 7 in a Kindle pouch?

    Anyone ever use the zip top Kindle/keyboard pouch to hold a Nexus 7? Have the new model in a slim cover/case and wonder if it would fit... The slim case works well when it is out and being used, but it makes me nervous to just chuck it in the bag like that...

    It should. if you want to hedge your bets the Nook Color pouch is slightly taller so it should definitely work.
    Bags: Aeronaut, Tri-Star, Super Ego, Buzz, Pilot, Large Cafe, {Small Cafe & Synapse - Controlled by Wife!}
    Computer Protection: Brain Cell Size 4Z & 6X, Cache Size iPad & MacBookAir, Cork Pouch for Nook (holds Sony Reader)
    Accessories: Stuffed Bat - Grey, Backpack packing cubes (aeronaut, tri-star), Various Packing Cubes, Passport Pouch, Absolute Straps, QAM, Various Other Pouches, Freudian Slip, Side Effect, Travel Tray, Snake Charmer


      Not sure if this helps, but here's a Nexus 7 on top of a medium padded pouch:

      The measurements for the medium padded pouch are
      External Dimensions - 10.3" x 7" / 260 x 180 mm
      The Kindle pouch is
      External Dimensions: 6.9" x 9.5" / 175 x 240 mm
      While the colour pouch adamki linked to is
      NOOK Color™ or Tablet™ Pouch - 6.7" x 9.8" / 170 x 250 mm
      The measurements on the TB site are external (edge-to-edge), and you also have to take the zipper into account. If holding the tablet upright (portrait), width-wise is fine for either pouch. Height-wise is closer, but based on a quick check with a ruler, the Kindle pouch should still fit.

      [Edit] Missed the part where you were using a case, but I think it would still be ok.
