M-Edge Leisure Jacket for Apple iPad

Zippered case provides in-use screen protection at the cost of much usability.

Booq Cobra Courier XS

The Cobra Courier is a minimalist's iPad bag built with premium nylon and leather. Apart from some minor gripes, this is a great choice if you don't need much more than your iPad for the day (and if you don't mind carrying a "man bag").

ModulR iPad Case + Cover Package

ModulR's iPad Case + Cover Package is a clever system, and the case and Quick Stand work wonderfully together. If the stand’s lack of easy portability isn’t a hindrance, the package is a superb way to prop and mount your iPad while you work and play.

Ten One Particle Case + Pogo Sketch

The Particle Case + Pogo Sketch doesn't provide much protection or many extra features beyond the integrated stylus holder, and that feature comes with drawbacks of its own.

Review: Five more iPad bags and packs

macworld.com

Our collection of reviews of iPad bags, packs, and slings continues to grow. New this week are reviews of Booq's Mamba Shift M Denim laptop/iPad backpack, M-Edge's Journey Bag, Timbuk2's Slingshot, Tom Bihn's Co-Pilot, and Waterfield Designs' Muzetto.

M-Edge Journey Bag for Apple iPad

M-Edge's Journey Bag for the iPad includes a separate, zippered compartment for storing your iPad and offers a good storage-to-price ratio. But some odd design choices and a lack of internal pockets may disappoint those who want to keep small gadgets and trinkets organized on-the-go.

Timbuk2 Slingshot Netbook Case

This minimal case carries some of Timbuk2's signature charms, such as an adjustable shoulder strap and a loop for hooking a keychain carabiner or bike helmet. But sub-par construction and storage pockets don't do it any favors.

WaterField Designs Muzetto

The WaterField Designs Muzetto is a premium, stylish leather bag designed to bring a day's essentials and your iPad or netbook.

Booq Mamba Shift M Denim

Booq designed a bag exclusively for Apple, and it has a custom pocket configuration with spots for an iPad and even an Apple Wireless Keyboard. We had to get our hands on one.

Tom Bihn Co-Pilot

The Co-Pilot is a versatile and superbly made travel/day bag aimed squarely at iPad owners.
