    New Side Effect!

    This thing is fabulous! Just picked it up today at the store after pre-ordering it. I can fit my iPhone, wallet, Google Nexus 7 in its case, pocket knife and a writing pad. It can easily fit more, but for illustration purposes this is what I put in it as soon as I got it home. I also got it with the waist strap. I will post up come pictures when I get that set up. Thanks TB Crew, this is the greatest little bag ever!

    I believe the iPad mini is slightly wider so it might fit? The Nexus 7 I have fit with the case on it.

    I want this bag too!
    I love the minimalism of it.
    Nice pics. You really get the sense of the robustness of the balistic nylon.
    My little set of TB stuff:
    Western Flyer (steel/ultraviolet)
    Small Pouch (cork)
    Large Shop Bag (solar)
    packing cubes

    My iPad Mini will squeeze inside my Plum Side Effect if I take it out of its case, which I don't want to do. But sadly I can't zip the old Side Effect closed if I do that. However, I just ordered the Aubergine Side Effect as a "Happy Birthday to Me" gift. I'll let you know if the iPad Mini fits inside the new SE when the Aubergine arrives. But since Darcy says the dimensions of the two versions of the SE are the same, I doubt it will.

    thanks folks. I don't think the Ipad mini will fit; nor the Kindle paperwhite from the sound of it....just thought it would be a good bag to tote something like that in addition to usual stuff. But this would be a handy purse that is not a small cafe bag...

    Ok... Just ordered my new Side Effect. tizi's pix forced the issue. I will be using this as my organizer bag for all of my adapters, cables, and power bricks. Really looking forward to it... And it has shipped, so I'll get to play with it soon. It will go really nicely in my just-received Synapse 25!

    I can fit my Kindle Paperwhite in my old version of the Side Effect. When the my new one arrives I can test that as well. I don't keep the Paperwhite in any sort of case though.

    Thanks! Very keen to hear the answer to this question. If an iPad mini will fit then I can dump my messenger bag (not TB)!

    It would be a perfect addition to my EDC if it fits a large Moleskine (5" x 8.25"). Has anyone tried it?

    The Moleskine in the size you asked about does not fit. It goes in, but will not zip shut.
