IPad Bags for Men
Booq Boa Push ($89)
Booq wins the prize for pure design in an iPad messenger bag, crafting an immediately eye-catching slim leather-and-Twylon over-the-shoulder case that appears like it's built to go with $300 fashion designer jeans. The thing is, your whole bag's too slim because of its very own good. An inner iPad compartment comprises almost the entire bag, and it is a good complement iPads in instances (although Apple's thin situation works narrowly). The pocket has exposed sides at the top and base, making a naked iPad at an increased risk to a-sudden downpour. Similarly, a stylishly sewn front iPhone pocket leaves smartphones also subjected on a subway, in addition to two thin pockets-one in, one regarding the back-are barely large enough for a Moleskin laptop. Forget about holding any energy adapters. Its comfortable, though: the seatbelt-nylon band rests well regarding the shoulder and lies flat on sides associated with bag. Make the drive a little larger the next time, and we also have a winner.

M-Edge Journey Bag ($69)
M-Edge tends to make many different Kindle and iPad situations, additionally the Journey is one of its couple of bags. Initially, it really is as streamlined and sharp as a form-fitting suit. For sale in purple, blue, or black colored, our design looked a bit too metrosexual the more we used it. Even worse, even though the zippered compartments in are quite roomy (the iPad additionally gets its own cushioned zippered pocket), the large, rigid forward panel is worthless; a middle buckle is difficult to unsnap on the run, and insufficient front pockets from the inside or exterior flaps make this an awful pedestrian commuter case. It will, but look respectable for work meeting.

Tom Bihn Ristretto for iPad ($110)
Higher priced than most iPad bags, the Ristretto earns its price with well-thought-out design and extremely practical, roomy pockets. Available in numerous interior/exterior colors (we favor olive green), the Cordura nylon straight case keeps an iPad in a passionate sewn-in rear pocket along with its own defensive fold-over flap that is adequate for a 10-inch Netbook, also. Another front pocket and many zippered subcompartments can take an iPhone and far more-on a recent press event we were able to fit an iPad, an 11.6-inch Netbook, a camera, a USB dock, and our wallet and secrets. Several rings and videos hold keychains or independently offered zipper-wallets. A thick shoulder pad actually quickly adjustable and metal part buckles are prone to squeaking, but this is actually the many flexible and nonembarrassing iPad bag we have yet encountered.

Tom Bihn Co-Pilot ($110)
Designed, while you might imagine by its name, as an airline carry on case, the horizontally aligned Co-Pilot has actually a puffier, looser feel than Tom Bihn's other Ristretto case. Moreover it keeps a lot of gear: a roomy internal primary pocket features a removable cushioned iPad/Netbook sleeve, but is usually absolve to make use of as you desire. Three forward compartments tend to be oddly lined up, but they are meant to hold gear in two side multipockets and a water bottle/umbrella when you look at the vertical center pocket-a small hole within the base is supposed to help with moisture drainage. A back pouch can take a boarding pass/magazine, but it addittionally unzips on base in order to become a strap for affixing toward handle of larger wheeled luggage. The case's undoubtedly useful and large, but maybe better remaining for regular fliers.
