I have had this case for about 5 years of heavy travel.
I usually stuff it with iPad and crossword book in back pocket.
I stuff front pocket with paperback, two chargers, pen & pencil, headphones, Bluetooth earpiece, gum, tissues, a charger and couple cables, and some spare cash.. (occasionally my smartphone also).
I stuff mini front pocket with boarding passes, baggage (and other) receipts and possibly an earpiece or something small.
I can pack this in my carryon backpack, and grab only this and a water bottle with me at my seat for long flight or car ride.
I have had some challenges with space, used to fit in pocket of seat back in front of me, but those pockets are smaller. So I attached a carbineer and some cordage to be able to secure to seatback. I recently added a small paper bag with twine loop handles. (got this bag with water when checking in at Hilton). I jam the bag in the magazine holder, and secure the case logic bag to the paper bag with the carbineer through the twine loop handles.
All of that currently works great and keeps my stuff organized and at arms reach.
This bag is a key component in the organization and satisfaction of my travel. I love it's functionality, for me. love it.
Mine is 5+ years old, on second iPad, and still going strong. no tears or discernible wear.
Last week I just purchased two more, to have as spare and to give to children.
This is one of the products in my life that I have really loved, super practical.
