Smallest Seat/Saddle Bag that will hold an iPad and Maybe a Shirt?

Wanting to try something new. I'm looking for a bag that attaches to the loops on a brooks saddle that's big enough to hold an iPad and maybe a shirt and underwear. (I keep pants at work) Extra bonus points if it looks good!

So far, I'm liking the Carradice bags - anyone know if an iPad will fit in the Barley?

Can't speak for the Carradice, but I can say that the Sackville Small Saddlebag from Rivendell would certainly fit your criterion. You can add a bag lunch and a toolkit if needed. It may not be the "smallest" bag that will work but seems very versatile to me.

the dimensions should be listed on carradice's website. Have you seen that? and you have the dimensions of the iPad, right? You can always compress shirts, so why don't you look for the length and width and see which Carradice would accomodate your needs. Also, a little extra room is good in case there's something else you want to pack.

Yes, going straight by dimensions, I think it will fit, if those dimensions are for the main compartment. If they are for the whole bag including the side pockets, then I dont exactly know how big the main compartment is. Still, it looks like there is enough room either way, but I would feel better if anyone has actually put an iPad in one and can say for sure.

I thought the dimensions listed were only for the main compartment. Anyways, maybe someone will post that they have an iPad in a Carradice.
