I'm wondering how you, mostly men, carry your iPad around? Have you found a sling bag? I'm not fond of the man-purse, so I'm trying to figure out what I would use to carry it.

Thanks for any ideas or links.

I just use the Apple case and carry it around like a folder. If I have a bunch of stuff with me, everything goes into a backpack including the iPad.

Slick shoes?! Are you crazy?!

It's European!

Don't own an iPad, but keep a netbook in a backpack.

Folder or backpack - nothing out of the ordinary.

So, for all the people only using a sleeve or case, if you're going to be out for the day you will carry it in your hand/on your arm for hours on end? You won't want a bag of some sort?

The Apple case is the way to go on this.

I think the beauty of the sleeve idea is that you can just throw the iPad into whatever bag you've already got going now, and not worry about it getting scraped up by your current loadout.

Personally, anything that can't fit a 15" laptop looks too tiny on my frame anyways.

All this being said, WaterField's Muzetto looks pretty awesome.

I just carry mine around in my hand in the case - sort of like a daytime or larger paperback. Works very well and looks great. Will take some pics later and post them.

I'll be using/testing the InCase Convertible Book Jacket which is supposed to be arriving this Wednesday. I also ordered a new Timbuk2 messenger bag that I'll be using for school and I'm sure the iPad will be tossed in too.

It's in an Incase zippered neoprene sleeve (black), and then into the normal Case Logic messenger bag I normally carry my MBP in.
