I carry my reader, light, USB cord, AC charger, Kobo gift cards, stylus, cleaning cloth and fabric sleeve in this case. It all fits in my purse, which isn't big.

Thanks also to Pomtroll.

These bags look so well made. I want something durable. I am going to check out the forum too. Thank you both.

The Mk VII Gas Mask Bag works perfectly as a small bag for carrying round my T1, tablet and any bits I wants with it. Also the main section has a divider that's perfect for holding a drink in.

Seeing as it's also the same bag as used by Indiana Jones, it's damn cool too!

Don't forget to purchase the leather strap as the canvas one on the original versions is way too short, and the replica has no included strap.
After looking at that for a while, I decided it's way too cool and I have to have one, so I ordered one of the original Mk VIIs with the leather strap. Thanks for the link!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought so.

For a bag that is around 70 years old, mine was in pretty good nick. Just needed to remove a little bit of corrosion and give all the metal-work a bit of a clean and the bag was as good as new.

I had a massive dillema with the canvas strap as I didn't want to ruin it in case I wanted to reuse it. I spend 30 minutes carefully picking at the stitching so as not to damage it, so if I need to re-fit it, I can.

BTW, mine's the proper Indy bag as I got the W&G one, not the standard one. It's more expensive but it's worth it though.

Glad to hear it was in such good shape. I almost pulled the trigger on one of the repro bags, but since I'm a major history geek, having an original Mk VII just seemed so much cooler that I couldn't resist. I understand that the webbing that attaches the O-rings to the bag is a potential point of failure (corrosion on the rings can wear through the webbing), but I'm hoping that if I pay close attention to sanding off any corrosion that it'll last. I figure the worst-case scenario is that I use the webbing on the original strap (which I won't be using anyway) to fabricate replacements--or even end up buying another Mk VII or perhaps one of the repros made by Magnoli or WPG, and keep the original as a historical artifact. :-)

I opted for the standard bag, since I'm not that obsessed with absolute fidelity to what appeared on the screen. I just want something cool to carry my Kindle Fire, USB cable, iPhone, business cards, and a few odds and ends to and from work.

Like others here, I'd rather have an all-purpose bag that I can use to carry many things, like the shoulder bags I have now... a few different sizes, depending on how much I'm carrying that day, and I'm good.

I find specific bags and cases tend to pile up, and if/when you replace that gadget for something else, all your specific accessories go right to the trash. I try not to be wasteful, so all-purpose bags are for me.

This looks quite nice though the prices are spicy.

The thing is minute, at least compared to my briefcase, and it holds the MacBook along with all manner of chargers, cables and, of course, the Kobo. And it's only the size of a standard letter sheet.

But the "purse" jokes I had to suffer are unbelievable - right down to the outrageously politically incorrect f**-bag

Yes, but lifetime warranty. If something happens (zipper breaks, strap breaks, etc) call them, send it in, and they send you a new one.

The one I am carrying now is my third bag. But I only paid for the first one.

And I carry it daily, and my job has a lot of international travel, so it gets used and overstuffed a LOT.

Agree. Too bad they do not ship internationally.
