    Another vote for the Timbuk2 messenger bag, especially for the money. I originally purchased one for my 11" netbook on sale (about $35 as I recall.) Found, like others, that my netbook wouldn't quite fit in the dedicated compartment. Held onto it and found that it was perfect for the iPad 2.

    More elegant (and more expensive) alternatives are available from Waterfield Designs. I have the iPad Travel Express. (Or I will have on Father's Day. ) The iPad Wallet is similar and has a dedicated compartment for the Apple Wireless Keyboard. (Won't work with the Origami Workstation cover for the keyboard, though.) And if you're into leather, their Muzetto bag ($200 for the iPad size) is very good looking.

    BTW, Waterfield Designs makes extremely durable bags. I have a laptop bag that I've used/abused for years that looks as good as the day I bought it. And unlike almost every other manufacturer, their bags usually have bright interior colors that enable you to SEE what's in the d**n bag!

    All in all, I'd recommend Waterfield Designs bags without reservation. You pay a bit more but you'll understand why if you own one.

    I have a mobileedge scanfast that I bought for my netbook: ScanFast Ultra Portable / Netbook Messenger Bag - TSA Approved / Compliant - Airport Security Checkpoint Friendly | Mobile Edge For some reason they don't show the second zipped compartment where the netbook goes. I have my ipad in a soft zipped case and it fits in the netbook compartment perfectly... like it was made for it. The bag is pretty small, plenty of space to store accessores and power cords, fits my needs great.

    I found this brand as I was searching. The multiple section pockets caught my attention. I'm still on the search comparing between products. Thanks for the suggestion.

    The Muzetto bag is a little too pricey, but the WaterField Design product seems more reasonable for purchase. Are you getting the iPad Travel Express bag as a gift from your children?
    I'm considering one between the iPad Travel Express and the SGP Dressen messenger bag. Thank you for your input! Much appreciated.

    I've checked the site you have linked. Are you using one by any chance? I would like to hear a feedback for this brand product. Thanks.

    This case looks very convenient when traveling. It looks very firm and have sturdy resistance for good protection. Thank you for sharing.

    I found this great bag at REI.
    It's the Osprey Warp vertical bag. Plenty of room for everything!
