    I have a new iPad and am looking at getting a Bluetooth keyboard. I like the size and feel of the Apple one. It is about 2 inches longer than the iPad so to carry it looks a bag with two compartments and also a couple of extra pockets would work. I am looking for something lightweight and has a strap. There is a Kickstarter project that looks good for the iPad and Apple keyboard, but looks like it may have to fit into another bag for carrying around. Any ideas?

    I'll take a picture of my Targus bag. It fits nearly around the iPad and keyboard and has extra pockets for leads and chargers.

    Got it from Staples.

    I have/use the "iPad Travel Express" bag from Waterfield ($79.99, USD).

    It has lots of pockets inside, has a special pocket for the iPad and yet another pocket that fits the Apple wireless keyboard like a dream. It comes with a handle (that can be upgraded to have a padded part so's you can save your shoulder). It is my geek bag for all my iPad stuff (charger, headphones, cords, camera connection kit, stylii, microfiber cloth, keyboard, etc) and everything fits quite well in it. It's a very compact bag, even with all the stuff I've got in it.

    Just a suggestion, though I am quite please with it...

    Check out any quality messenger bags. No need for an iPad specific bag.

    I have a generic BT keyboard that clips on to protect the screen, cost £18 of ebay and works well.

    Bought an Amazon basics neoprene sleeve case which is splash proof and cushioned, so my Ipad is all safe and cozy :).
