    Does anyone carry a full size iPad in a Small Cafe Bag?

    The measurements look like it would work, but all the descriptions of the SCB make is seem much smaller.

    Thanks.

    MrDaisy does sometimes but I don't because I think it's too tight a fit.

    I have a folio type case on mine and he has an otterbox. He admits that not much else will fit in the bag with it.

    I have a medium CB coming to solve exactly this problem.
    List under construction ....

      Thanks! I was leaning toward the medium, but since I already have a LCB, it feels like I should go "farther away" in size and get a small... Usually, all I need fits in a side effect, but if I need my iPad and/or water bottle, I would have to size up to something else.

        i do! i just have a smart cover on mine, but it fits just fine. other than my iPad, i carry a TB organizer wallet, a small pouch with lippies, and a pack of gum. i'm kind of a light traveler. anyhow, i'm not sure you could fit an iPad *and* a water bottle, but an iPad *or* a water bottle, yes.

            I do with a Logitech keyboard and it fits fine. A water bottle won't fit though.

              i think the full size ipad may work better inside of the medium cafe bag - just in terms of having the bag useful for carrying additional things.

              my son and i carry the ipad mini inside of the small cafe bag, and that works out very well for us.

                Yup, the iPad2 fits in the main pocket of the MCB with plenty of room to spare. It will also fit in the front zipper pocket (even while in a thick folio case), leaving the main pocket free for other stuff.

                  So I went to the store today to try both (lucky for me I live in Seattle), and came away with the Medium. Whether it is really a better size, or it was just the Plum/Wasabi calling to me - time will tell

                  I think it may be the bag-I-have-long-been-seeking, will report on that after I carry it a few places.

                  (I am new to TB-land, is it normal to conjure up new trips/outings just to use try out new bags??)

                    Maybe for the fans that are lucky enough to live in the area. The first time I visited it was to checj out the travel bags, but I was especially in the market for one of the Synapses. I walked away with a pre-order on an out of stock S25 and my wonderful Travel Tray. It's been downhill ever since.....
