I have a Western Flyer that works splendidly for conference travel, but I wanted a small bag to carry around when I was actually at the conference. Enter the Medium Cafe Bag, which arrived today along with an organizer pouch and microfiber cleaning cloth. Prepare to be blown away by my mad iPhone camera skillz:
I mentioned on another thread that I was concerned about the interior colors clashing. They do, ever so profoundly:
But who cares, really.
Here's the happy family (from left: MCB, WF, Ballistic pen/pencil organizer pouch, small organizer pouch).
I love grey things.
Here's the MCB packed as I'll use it at conferences:
Here are the contents, unpacked (from left: iPad in vertical Cache; small and medium Moleskine notebooks; small OP with iPad charger; hemp wallet; Conifer mini organizer pouch with rosary [I'm superstitious, and a nervous flyer--people love to see me whip it out during turbulence]; My Neighbor Totoro post-it notes; a pen; wireless keyboard in Waterfield slip case; Orbit Mist gum, Peppermint Spray; Shure earbuds; microfiber cloth):
And here's the WF, packed for a rather casual two-day conference in the Midwest, rocking out with some toiletries (I'm driving to this conference, hence the ginormous contact solution bottle):
Clothes in a Mesh Packing Cube (it's all in there: a pair of pants, a sweater, a dress shirt, three T-shirts, chonies, and socks):
All packed up, with clothes in the rear pocket, MCB in the front pocket, and Vibram FiveFingers in the water bottle pocket (shoes fold in half to zip the pocket up):
Oh yeah, can't forget the paper I'm supposed to be giving . . .
There you have it--the Western Flyer and the Medium Cafe Bag. Sort of different, and yet sort of the same, just like these guys.
Gratuitous corgi pic FTW!
