Lightweight bag iPad/Tablet Courier V.3 from Skooba two inches wide
Skooba Design has announced its latest tech accessory, the iPad/Tablet Courier V.3
, to compliment the release of Apple's iPad Air. A slim, water-repellant courier bag, the iPad/Tablet Courier V.3 has a fully-padded sleeve that is suspended on the back wall of the bag interior, adding a bit of drop protection. Additional space in the main compartment allows for stowing other small items during usage, and a separate, zippered accessory compartment can be accessed from the front of the bag. Both compartments are covered by an oversized weather flap -- secured with a one-handed clip -- that also features a quick-access opening for the tablet as well as a small, waterproof pouch for 'need-at-hand' items. Shipping is set to begin in early December, and will be priced at $90. Pre-orders are available through Skooba Design's site.
