Hi folks... recently ordered a Medium Cafe Bag to be my everyday carry bag for my purse stuff PLUS a Barnes & Noble Nook e-Reader.
Everything fits nicely, that's no problem, there's plenty of room, as I don't carry a ton of stuff with me for the most part, but I don't quite like the fact that my Nook in cover will be rattling around in the bag along with my wallet and other stuff. I'm a little worried about getting my nice nook covers scratched up.
The Nook is 8"L x 5.75"W x 1.25"D or slightly smaller depending on which of my two covers I have it in.
I am wondering if the Ristretto for iPad might work a little better, since it has the separate padded pocket? Also, having put all my stuff in the Medium Cafe Bag to check fit, I am noticing that with the Nook added to my everyday stuff, that's a heavier haul than I am used to!
So I'm also thinking that maybe getting a bag with the Absolute Strap option might be good. But maybe the iPad Ristretto is total overkill?
I use my bags for a long time and don't switch often, so the extra money for the iPad Ristretto is not too much of an issue. My current bag *must* be replaced, it is a decade or so old and though all the zippers and hardware are fine, it is finally developing a hole in the bottom!
