    I tried and the MBA is too tall, unfortunately. If it's any consolation, there isn't really enough padding in the FS to make it a very good laptop holder.

    No but she fits of cause. She is kind of the most versitale (well obviosly the small one is as it fits nearly everywhere, but the medium one fits most bags in a sensible manner, if that makes sense.

    ETA: this was to kkinteas question if the medium sized FS fits into a Swift.

    Most of the time I don't carry letter paper in my Little Swift, which I use all the time. But when I occasionally do, and use folders, it looks like this:


    So for those occasions, when I only take a Little Swift to a conference with iPad, but want to carry papers, this is a lot more acceptable:



    If I don't need to carry papers, then yes, I'll use Baby Bear.

    The Medium is a good fit to the Swift. The main reason for going to the Large is if she needs the width in the mesh pockets. (She was asking about fitting 3D Organizer Cubes there).

    Sorry, I am tiered by now, I overread that. The 3D mesh pocket fits better in the large on. depending on how full it is of caus. A stuffed one I would not try to prie in the medium one but I was able to get the same 3D-Mesh pocket I have used earlier in the large one into the medioum mesh pocket.

    Wow too much mesh in one post.

    Ah moriond I think you just now have broadened my horizen on the Swift familly: looking at your pictures again I can see, that this style of bags can totally handle if some content peaks out. And the medium size only peeks out very little.

    I use the medium cafe bag primarily for vacation trips and one of these may just be the answer to having items in there a little better organized! I find that the MCB is sometimes larger than what I may need, but with the slip, it might be more useful to me. These photos have been extremely helpful in that regard -- thanks!

    Yes, I will get the medium sized Freudian Slip, bc it should fit the largest number of my bags that need interior organization. I can't say enough how helpful this thread has been.
    Thanks!!!!

    I may be in the minority here, but since I can't/don't walk far due to disability, I've discovered that the CBs and other messenger bags work best for me on one shoulder. When I carry them crossbody, filled, the weight is bad on my back. So, I keep the straps fairly short. I think the med FS will work well for most things I use. And knowing that the small works in the CP might entice me to use the CP. I have been less comfortable with using lots of pouches in my bags than most TBers because I am not traveling long distances with them. So having the ability to organize without what can feel to me like clutter will be great. I'm leaving soon on vacation to a national park, my first real vacation since finding TB, so will have to decide on bags to take. Not luggage. But backpack/purse/organizers. Let the fun begin!

    I'm not sure if this has already been discussed, but the Small and Medium Cafe Bag FS's would probably work really well as a caddy on board a plane. Basically, you could carry your iPad, headphones, mints, snacks, notebook, pens, Magazines, etc and when you get on board just pull it out and store in the seat pocket.

    Do papers fit in the medium Freudian Slip (FS) or do they always poke out as I see in moriond's picture?
    I need to carry some 8 1/2 x 11 inch papers (a stack of about 20 or so, stapled together) a few days a week, and if they would fit securely in the medium sized FS, in a way that the edges wouldn't get ruffled, that would make a big difference. (It would mean I could actually start wearing my medium cafe bag more often.)

    Dear bchaplin,

    Letter size paper would fit better into Papa Bear (the Large Cafe Bag Freudian Slip). It would stick out a little from Mama Bear (the Medium Cafe Bag Freudian Slip).

    bchaplin that is a tuff call. I do not have letter sized but I drew a line on A4 sized paper at 11 inces. on the very outer meshpocket tucked in as deep as possible my stack of 25 sheets peeks over for about 3 to 5 milimeter. No idea how you call that in the world of inches. A4 paper is not as whide as letter sized so maybe moriond can add to this with more acurate test-candidates. I would probably look for a protective but thin foulder for extra protection. But that foulder would need to ad protection on the upper corners.

    Sorry, no real help here.

    ETA: mavericks great answer is much more to the point. I seem to take ages to type one post :-)

    I agree, Ilkyway -- a folder to hold the paper would be a good idea! It would work in Papa Bear or Mama Bear!

    By the way, I always enjoy reading your posts!!! Sometimes, often, I think -- it isn't about getting there, but the journey along the way! :)
