UPS delivered mine a few minutes ago. The iPad fits snuggly into the pocket provided. I am confident that a naked iPad will be well protected in this bag.
Unfortunately, I won't have my Apple case until Friday so I can't tell you if the iPad will fit in the bag with it on. I suspect it will but it will be a pretty tight fit.
If your question isn't answered by the time I get my case, I'll reply to this thread on Friday and let you know.
Btw, after examining the bag in detail, it is obvious to me that the designers put a lot of thought into it. I am very happy with my purchase.

I received my Apple case today. I can now answer the question, can the iPad in the Apple case fit in the Skooba bag. The answer is yes and no .
Let me explain what I mean. There is a divided section in the main part of the bag. The iPad fits in this section snuggly. When the iPad is in the Apple case, it cannot fit into this section of the bag. This isn't a problem because there is plenty of space in the remainder of the bag's main compartment to accommodate the iPad when cased.
I am happy with this arrangement. The way I see it, the naked iPad fits into the special section of the pad which provides an extra level of padding for the iPad. When the iPad is in a case it is already protected so it doesn't require the extra protection and can go in the main section of the compartment. Don't get me wrong, IMHO, this bag provides plenty of padding/protection for anything stored in the main compartment.
Here is a pic of my naked iPad in the special section.
I put some spacers in to try and show that there is plenty of space in the main part of the compartment for the iPad in just about any case. The weight of the bag just closes it up if nothing is in it.

Thanks for all the info and pics. Just placed my order!
Hi to all, nice forum.
Man that's 1 smart looking bag, I really want one. I just went to order but with shipping and import duty it came to $140 can't spend that sort of money on a bag.
If anyone knows of a way to get one over to the UK a bit cheaper it would be much appreciated.
Hi there, it's Michael from Skooba. Sorry about the crazy international rates... we are working on that and expect to have a much better solution by the end of June (we don't make any money on shipping and we want to get our overseas visitors the lowest rates possible, believe me).
We should be able to help. just e-mail skoobaservice(at)skoobadesign.com, put your note to attention Nancy, and explain the situation. She can almost always do much better with international rates by finding them off-line.
Hope that helps, and that we can get you the bag you want!
