    Do standard sized ipads fit in the small cafe bag? Also Dungeons and dragons?

    Looking for a bag that would hold a standard sized 5th gen ipad (IE not the mini and not the big pro ones). I see the small cafe bag is listed as an "ipad bag" but i'm not seeing much in the description about it. Also, does it have a place to put a waterbottle besides just a carabineron the side?

    Also would be nice if it held a dungeons and dragons book (probably the monster manual). from amazon, the dims are 8.6 x 0.8 x 11.2 inches which is CLOSE but not quite within the specs of the Small Cafe Bag.

    Here you see an IPad Air 2nd Generation which has the same dimensions as the IPad 5th generation 240 x 169.5 x 6.1 mm (9.45 x 6.67 x 0.24 in) inside my Small Cafe Bag:



    Regarding the water bottle: there is no specific place to put it. The main compartment is certainly best suited to take it.

    I also have taken my 5th gen iPad on many excursions in the small Café. Sometimes the iPad goes with a cover but more often these days it goes naked. There is also room in the rear pocket for your iPad. The small Café is not very wide so anything in the bag that is hard or inflexible could potentially injure the iPad in a crunch. If you have an Otterboxed iPad you give up a lot of interior volume. There is no room for a water bottle in the small but the medium has lots of internal space: I have traveled often with the iPad in the rear pocket of the medium, lunch and a Coke in the main pocket along with journal, pens, snacks, charger, tickets and ID, a book or magazine, and still plenty of room in the front zipper pocket. The medium is larger than you require for you listed objects but it is a far more versatile bag. However, the medium only travels with me, I use the small every waking hour of every day as you can see from the schmutz .Do standard sized ipads fit in the small cafe bag? Also Dungeons and dragons?-5ff0196e-19af-44dd-9fe9-6e0d8c18582e_1_201_a-jpeg

    D&D books will NOT fit in the Small Cafe Bag. I tried. Stick Out Tongue One, maybe two books will fit in the Medium one, but they will be slightly too tall, I think. I think for D&D books you might be better off with a Maker's Bag?

    I often carry a 10.5" iPad Pro in my small Cafe Bag. My iPad wears an OtterBox case, so it is a bit bigger than just the naked iPad. The iPad sticks out of the bag a little bit, but the flap closes and buckles with no problem.

    My iPad Pro 11” fits inside the Small Cafe Bag with a LogicPro keyboard cover and it closes no problem at all.
