    I currently carry an iPad Pro 9.7 with a Brydge keyboard in a Swiss Gear vertical boarding bag, which is perfectly sized for the device and some accessories (flash drive, charger and cables, AirPods, etc.). I’m thinking, however, of carrying a 12” MacBook and a 10.5 iPad Pro (no keyboard, Apple leather sleeve). What are some good recommendations for bags to carry both devices? I’m looking for a small bag with a handle and shoulder strap so it can be carried in addition to a backpack.

    Thanks for any recommendations!

    I'm currently using this to carry my iPad Pro 12.9". It has space for a laptop and a tablet. I might be getting the 12" MacBook too and this bag will still fit both the iPad Pro 12.9" and the 12" MacBook. It's super slim and looks really nice too.

    Those are nice bags, thanks for sharing, I haven’t heard of Brenthaven before but they are pretty nice.

    Finally took your recommendation and picked it up. I had to get it on eBay, since it's unfortunately been discontinued. I was very surprised how minimalist it was when I got it, even though it can hold a laptop and tablet. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Glad you liked it! I've been using the Collins Courier Bag for almost 2 years now and it's still going strong. Enjoy :)
