Using a Side Effect inside a Cafe Bag
Whilst I wait for my big TB order to arrive, I'm wondering what else I can replace... *lol*
My current EDC is a Scaramanga leather "saddle bag" - it's gorgeous but nowhere near as capacious as its dimensions suggest, since the thick turned-out seams eat up a lot of space. I can just fit my iPad Mini with ultrathin keyboard (or my Kobo in its case) plus wallet, keys, reading glasses and a few other essentials, but if I go shopping I often have to haul leisure items out and replace them with a compact shopping bag or two. Also there are no organisation options apart from the single outer pocket (which is a bit fiddly to snap shut), so it's not really safe for carrying on holiday.
I don't want to massively increase the amount of stuff I carry, but I was wondering if a SCB with a SE clipped inside would fit the bill? Keep essentials in the SE ready to haul out for a quick trip to the supermarket, then add the iPad (in cache) in the SCB for when I'm out and about. Would a small cafe bag be big enough, or would a medium be better?
