It fits pretty well in a Hadley Pro (I have the new 2020 version, but I assume it would work well with the others as well). It’s not snug, but I don’t think it would fit in a smaller bag.

I’m in the u.s. with no dealers nearby. I was thinking the Hadley pro might be the smallest but that’s just too big for my small kit.

I have a Hadley Small Pro, and I can and do carry an iPad Pro fitted between the inner pouch and the back. (And why does *everything* have to be "Pro" these days...)

It is a very tight fit, and it makes the back of the Hadley rather more rigid than normal. I have the iPad inside a keyboard cover, so it is probably slightly thicker than a plain tablet.

The main downside is the weight. With the iPad, a camera and three lenses even the small Hadley is a bit of a pain to carry if you are out for several hours, as the weight will sit entirely on one shoulder. The upside is that it is very compact and meaningfully waterproof.

Do you have the 11” or the 12.9” iPad Pro? I too have the keyboard cover. Also, I don’t know why everything has to be called pro.

This is the older 10.5, but it is essentially identical in size to the current 11 inch model that my partner uses.

I’ve also used the 10.5” pro with the original Hadley Small. And agree with everything @delkhouri said. I think the newest one has a padded iPad space, but could be wrong.

I dislike the new Hadley Pros, mainly because how the new wrap connects to the bag kills my preferences of using a PD Capture Clip there, and admittedly as I get older, carrying a iPad, camera, 3-5 lenses, batteries, mic, and no real room for much else? on one shoulder?... I’m getting old =(
