My usual day bag is getting frayed and I expect to have to get something new shortly.
Does the RS Civita Shoulder Bag size hold an iPad mini? Will it fit in the secondary pocket?
I try to go minimalist while I'm out and about, and the civita shoulder bag looks on the web site here
to be about as far as I'll consider going in the touristy direction. I don't want or need the civita day pack.
The shoulder bag already seems a little bit touristy to me, considering that my frayed bag is a simple natural cotton
pouch that I usually have no problem carrying in even to places that insist on using the vestiare for day bags.
The cotton pouch holds a magazine, map, guidebook, bottle, cap, and I can thread a sweater or jacket through the handle,
or stuff in a towel for beach outings. That's enough for the day, and I see that the civita shoulder is smaller than the day pack
so I'm guessing it will also be about the same capacity-wise.
I often wear a shirt with chest pocket and/or a sport jacket to hold pricier flat items, like an iPod. Maybe the civita shoulder bag would give me the option of going even more casual if I could keep everything in it...
