    This is my Travel Cubelet with my Jottbook, which has the same height and width as the Leuchtturm Bullet Journal. So, not a great fit!

    But the Side Kick, of course, is great for these journals. Another option is to put the TC inside of a Small Cafe Bag, which is sized for the notebook, plus of course has a lot of extra pockets. The SK seems more like the kind of bag you'd want to bring into a meeting, though.

    At work, I find myself shlepping a Leuchturnn (sp?) bullet journal, pen/pencil, and phone to meetings along with an always necessary laptop and coffee/water. As you can imagine, my hands get quite full, especially since I have to use a badge to swipe in at various entrances. It’s getting to be a lot to carry, but since all elements are necessary (I am an analog girl when it comes to taking notes and recording appointments, laptops are a work necessity, and phones/coffee/water are a life necessity), paring down isn’t a long-lasting option.

    So, since I like the look and the vertical orientation of the Travel Cubelet as well as its minimal aesthetic, I was wondering, would the bullet journal fit inside a Travel Cubelet, or would it be too snug?

    For instance, I know it fits in my Sidekick, but that has more pockets/compartments than I need, and it’s horizontal orientation is in my opinion fantastic for its current purpose, which is as a bag-within-a-bag organizer to hold all the things I need in a day but don’t want or need to schlep from meeting to meeting. Which is why I think the Travel Cubelet would be perfect, if it fits the notebook.

    So what do you think? Has anyone tried it? Thanks in advance for your thoughts and responses! (And thanks also for reading this ramble which I typed from under the covers with one eye open.)

    So... I ordered one, in Grass, along with a black Field Journal (because I couldnít let it retire for good *again* without welcoming one into my home). Iíll report back with impressions on both once theyíve arrived. Thanks for your thoughts and photos, everyone!! I know that my journal wonít fit in the TC, but if Iím just walking around the office with it, I donít see that as a make-or-break issue, especially since the rest of the time it will live as a bag within a bag. But Iíll know more about whether or not it will work once Iíve actually played around with it.

    Thanks again! Iíll report back soon.

    I ordered two figuring Iíd keep one. Loved Mars Red so it was an easy choice. Best friend fell in love with cloud. No returns required!

    My Grass Travel Cubelet just arrived!!! And itís a keeper.


    (pictured next to my new Field Journal for scale)

    It will be perfect for spring and summer wanderings when I donít want to carry too much, and as a bag-within-a-bag until then. So excited!!

    My new olive/violet aether Travel Cubelet arrived. I love this combination. Looks great. I have other TCs, but they are the original ones with carbon aether. The violet really pops. It's too bad olive 525 is being discontinued. It's one of my favorite colors.

    Forgive my bad photography skills. The first picture is without a flash; the second with.

    I picked one up because I was hoping it would look, well, exactly like that. Hope it arrives before my trip this week!

    I had three TCs in my wishlist because I can't decide on a color, grass, dawn, veridian. And this pic has added olive to my list. Wink I gotta make up my mind, do I want a bright and cheery TC or one of these beautiful muted ones?

    The answer is simple: Buy both. No, really, you'll be happy you did. Personally I love grass, but I know others hate it. I always travel with a grass cubelet because it's really easy to find since the color stands out. Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Be daring and bold. You can't go wrong with both a bright TC and a muted one. Embarrassment

    So true! I have so many colors now. The Travel Cubelet is great. Just wish they would make it in Deep Blue; it's weird that it is every other color but that.

    definitely get more than one

    I have Mars Red, Dawn, and Black... I'm just sad that Canyon never made it into the TC's before it was disco'd.

    EDIT: Hmmm, I just realized that I also have a Viridian TC... four TC's...I may have a problem

    I highly recommend Dawn- it is such a beautiful purpley grey and goes so well with the violet interior. I added violet zipper pulls and key strap to have a nice combo of subtle bag color with pops of a brighter accent. Travel Cubelet-img_8331-jpg
