I love the leather that Vaja uses. I actually have 3 of their messenger bags for the ipad. Got them for CHEAP on eBay when I got lucky. I have a brown one and 2 blacks. Took the 2 black cases to a leather shop and he removed the strap off of one and attached it to the other black bag one WITH the strap. Now I can carry it like a purse rather than just a case for my ipad. It has the large compartment for the ipad, one for my iphone, zipper for my charger cord and a tiny pocket for the white apple charger (really have to fight to get that in and out at first because it is very tight.) I then have the other (now attached bag) for all my stuff .. wallet etc .. I should take a picture. Being new they are $240 it would have been an INSANE $500 for the two bags .. Thanks to eBay it was NOT.
