I'm currently the owner of a Case Logic E Sling, which is great when you're traveling with just your Mini, but now I have a requirement to transport my Mini 9 with my Canon Eos. Does anyone have a recommendation for a case that will fit the Mini 9 and have room for a Digital SLR? I'd probably only take one lens, and I can separate the lens from the body, but I haven't had a lot of luck finding cases that looked good. Ideally I'd want a messenger style bag, not a big fan of backpacks.

webdes03, check out the crumpler X Million Dollar Home series. Awesome bags.

My mini 10v travels in this:
Test – Ultimateaddons Netbook Bag. | UMPCPortal - Ultra Mobile Personal Computing

It's a very nicely made bag with lots of protection and enough space to carry a decent notebook and small sketchbook as well. Ultimate Addons posted in from UK to Australia in a week!

Except... when I bought it, it arrived at work. I asked my work colleague "geek chic, or....?" and he replied:

"Nuh. Man Bag."

That was a little deflating.

every time i see that ultimate addons bag linked i wish more and more they were in the states. i'd love to actually have one in my hands, i'm just not sure it's big enough for all the gear i carry.

"i'm just not sure it's big enough for all the gear i carry"

If you're not sure, I'd say it isn't big enough. The front pocket is barely big enough to get the charger into and still have the clasps work (I'm looking for a flat travel charger). The netbook pocket is a nice, well-padded and tight fit, and the secondary space bit inside is just big enough for a fat A5 notebook, a mini sketchbook, a mobile phone and some pens. Maybe a little camera if you wanted. But not more. It's not a gear bag, it's a netbook bag.

That said, it's very nice. And I'm sure Ultimate Addons would post it to the USA.

They do look slick... I think I'd be hard pressed to fit my Canon Rebel EOS in there though.

Really? I have the 5 million dollar home, and it fits a DSLR with prime attached and 2 zooms, a point-and-shoot, a chunky rugged GPS, a novel and 2 sketchbooks, a small bottle of water and a couple of sandwiches. I couldn't put a mini 10 in it as well though.

The 8 million dollar home is much bigger -might even fit a mini 10 in the front pocket. Then there's the Brazillion dollar home, which I've seen take a 15" macbook and a full pro DSLR setup.

Costs about the same as a mini 10v though.

My apologies, I was looking just at the photos on the page you linked... assumed it was the model you were referencing...

After reading this thread and checking around, I went with the LAPG Tactical Bail Out Bag. This is a serious bag. I'd recommend it to anyone.

I've got the LAPG bailout bag.. I like it. It's annoying at times, but it works quite well.

Has anyone tried this sweet-looking bag by Mobile Edge? Looks perfect for my purposes and is specifically designed for netbooks. I want to carry the Mini 9, charger, a sketchpad, pens, business cards, iPod (nano), water, and a few cords. Thoughts? Can anyone speak into this?









Here's the link to the product (comes in 4 color configurations):
ME Mini Messenger - Black / Orange | Mobile Edge

I'm tempted to buy this right now since it seems like it would be perfect and exactly what I'm looking for, but I figured I'd be smart and check in with you all to see if there were any good/bad reviews of this working with the mini's. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and comments.
