    Default Wanted: source for approx. 11x7x2-inch Cordura zip bag for writing kit

    The title says it all. I was using an old Acer netbook zip cover of about the same dimensions, but it was shedding its black flocking.

    I need something compact that takes A5 paper (~6x8"), envelopes, postcards, one (or two) Pelikan 3-pen cases and a pair of reading glasses. I don't need dividers or pockets.

    Anyone know of such a thing?

    I like the Lihit Labs Teffa Bags. They have outside pockets but no internal dividers. I use the A5 in grey. An A4 size is available. Not exactly all your requirements, but worth a look. My A5 fits a Rhodia pad and my iPad mini in the main zip compartment. https://www.jetpens.com/Lihit-Lab-Te...-Black/pd/7663

    Found a video that shows the bag more in-depth.

    Thank you, KrazyIvan. It's cool, but its main compartment is too thin. My choice of search words in search engines, Amazon and the like just fail to hit the mark. The closest I've come so far are "packing cubes," but those tend to have a thin mesh side that I don't want.

    hard to find something that does not have interior pockets or dividers. Tom Bihn is my go-to bag company, even though I have to import them from Seattle.

    How about this; https://www.tombihn.com/collections/...nt=33871387655

    I don't know what search terms you're using, but try "A4 nylon document pouch" or "A4 nylon conference folder". Some of those might me more fitting for you.

    Also try searching military map cases/bags. I have a Czech military map case that is close to the dimensions you're looking for.

    I use one of these from Office Depot:

    It easily holds multiple A4 size pads.

    This one meets your requirements to the T. The shoulder strap is removable if you don't like/need it. Price is not bad at $35.

    A5, not A4.

    Thanks, Ivan, that looks good! It might be bigger than I want, based on the photo of the MacBook sliding into it. I'll search to see if they have one size smaller.
