    Spiff kit as in flight bag

    Hi, Iím trying to find a TB solution to my seatback carry options. Iíve been using my PCSB as a seatback pocket Ďlinerí but itís a little wide for some pockets. I know some of you connect the SK with clips but I usually have an aisle seat and donít want things dangling when my neighbors are trying to get into and out of their seat. Iíve gone through all TB accessories online and came across the regular spiff kit. The dimensions look good but the bag appears rounded. Can anyone check to see if a iPad mini would fit with the zippers closed?

    p.s. Iíd like to fit the iPad mini, kindle, headphones, snack, chapstick, and maybe a small scarf.

    Thanks!

    I don't have a Spiff Kit but I do know that a Size 3 TSS should fit all of that, plus everything will be able to slide in and out easily when the drawstring is open.

    Hi Traveltech! Did you end up trying the spiff kit for a seatback bag? I'm curious to know how it worked for you. I've tried the Side Effect clipped to the backseat pocket, and a Freudian slip hooked over the tray latch, but I'm still looking for something just right. How has the spiff kit been? Thanks!

    No. I ended up returning the spiff kit and using a PCSB as before.

    The hanger got in the way of the zippered pocket and the whole thing was a bit unwieldy for what I wanted to carry. The PCSBís weight, flexibility and lack of internal pockets worked better (though it was a bit too wide for the seat pocket on one flight.)
