It's only too small if you feel it's too small when you use it. Everyone has a different piont of view over what size iPad is better.

The Mini is a nice size. You may or may not like it. Go in to an Apple store and play with both of them.

Jackets vary, for example it would fit in some of my jackets but not all of them, but even that is not a year round solution as its too hot to wear a jacket in the summer down here.
Could always sew on some big-ass pockets on the back, a 6" on the left and 8" on the right and toss in any iPad

IMO iPad mini is more future proof than the iPad 2. They got the same specs, but the smaller screen of the mini to be driven by the processor, makes it more snappy.

That being said I was in your same dilemma yesterday.

My sister got an iPad 2 and I played with it for a while and is a little heavy to do serious reading and as a couch companion. Therefore I ordered an iPad mini.

But that is just me. My sister was looking for a substitute for her netbook and the iPad was the right choice. I was looking for a device sitting in between my MBP and my iPhone 5. The iPad mini fits just in.

If it's too small, get the iPad.
