2.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea but not really practical., 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Twelve South 12-1319 BookBook Travel Journal for iPad (Personal Computers)
I bought this case to hold my Bose QC15 headphones and my iPad 2 which I use primarily as my inflight entertainment. The Twelve South website would seem to indicate this is an ideal use for the Travel Journal - it even goes as far as to recommend using my specific headphones with the case - however there just isn't enough room for everything. I can fit my headphones and iPad in but then closing it isn't easy. It strains and squashes everything inside, putting a worrying amount of pressure on everything.

After that didn't work out I decided to use it instead to hold my various Macbook accessories I take around everywhere, like my power supply with different adapters for different countries, my mouse, a Thunderbolt SSD drive. Again we run into the same problem, it's just not thick enough to hold these things. The EU and UK adapters don't really fit in the case for example - unless you're happy with it being a very tight fit and possibly having to sacrifice the use of the other side of the case to get them in there.

I have another Twelve South product: their Macbook stand. It came with an adapter for the Macbook with Retina but it's obvious it was hastily put together. The Macbook often leans to one side because the rubber insert doesn't provide enough support. This pretty much sums up my experience with the Travel Journal too. It's a nice idea but they haven't really followed it through well. It's not quite right; if they'd made it half-inch or so thicker (or quarter-inch tighter in the case of the Macbook stand) it would probably make all the difference.

So it gets 2 stars for looks but loses 3 stars for being unpractical. I'll be sending mine back.
