What I am looking to get is a large carabiner to act as a handle, since it DOES have a loop where it would work well.


Maybe if your bag has a loop in the right place a large carabiner would work as a handle for you?
No loop, but it was a good idea.

As the 6.8" dimension is up against a flexible internal divider, and the 9.1" dimension is up against a zippered internal storage compartment, I'm pretty sure it would fit fine. But I'm just throwing it out there for consideration, I don't have one.

Here's some pics.

Sure. Give me about 15min or so. I just checked my battery on my camera and it's dead. Let me put a small charge on it and I will take some pics for you.

EDIT:

There is a little space at the top however, it works good for me. It doesn't flop around at all. I carry it all the time.
Here ya go.

Sorry if I sounded like I didn't believe you. :mrgreen: I'm just being cautious since I had to return a sleeve to Amazon, because the thing was too small (even though the dimensions were bigger than a Mini). I'll try to get a photo of the case I settled on.

phoenix.stu, that is a really nice bag! I wish it came in more colors than black and moss. Are the walls of the main compartment cushioned?

I skimmed this thread and yours is the only post I see mentioning the Timbuk2 T-Pak bag from Dell. All I want is room for the Mini and the power supply. Nothing more. But I haven't been able to figure out from pictures if this bag has a normal handle like a briefcase would or if it's just backpack style. Can you help me out?

About half way down THIS page, there are some photos of the Timbuk2 bag in action...it looks like the straps are not backpack-styled, but shoulder styled. I don't know if one could convert it to backpack style or not. Hope that helps.

Got the Mini on Wed and started using this sleve http://www.caselogic.com/7_10_laptop_sl ... lid=126781 for my trip to Vegas that afternoon. Case worked well. Plane carry was in my LowePro Stealth, with no problems. Around Vegas I used my Mountain Smith Day Pack http://mountainsmith.com/products.asp?p ... egory2Id=0

The Mini was sometimes in the sleve and sometimes not in the Day Pack. Day Pack contained a Tiffen Lense divider, with 2 Lenses, Mini 9, PSU, Ebook Reader, Bluetooth Mouse, and other small stuff. Great bag to go around town and do different things if you want/need to keep a computer with you. Got a call from work on Black Friday and Remoted in to work at Caesars Palace Forum Shops and was able to get what was needed with in 10 mins of the call.
