    You have purchase your iPad and you love it. You didnt really know you needed it quite so much as you already have a laptop, that you now dont use. you want to protect it so have a nice case and or screen protector.... but you want to show it to people who dont have one and laugh...

    So is it now acceptable to have a manbag? a bad to carry your beloved iPad round and flaunt it at who ever doesnt have one ?


    Thoughts and comments peeps ?

    It depends on your definition of a man bag. Mine is just big enough for an iPod Shuffle...:p

    I use a Targus made for a net book. It stores the iPad in it's Griffin case, a camera and accessories, a GPS, cell, chargers and knick knacks...
    It looks more like a photographer's carryall than a ...man bag.

    Well, when you people start caring how the beer tastes, put down your purse and she'll give you a miller lite...

    Seriously, my wife and I both use a bag designed for 10" net books that we grabbed at Big Lots for $7.

    I think it's ok if the bag is macho, like leather and canvas or from an army surplus store. Conservative black nylon is lame.

    Man bags are okay, as long as they're bigger than the purse/handbag of your wife/girlfriend/mother.

    Depending if I'm being smart or casual, I have a Jasper Conran shoulder/semi-courier bag type thing, or a XL North Face full blown courier bag.

    Rucksacks, in the vast majority of situations, are a sartorial no-no. Of course, you might not care about that, worry about how looking "gay" is somehow offending your manhood, and enjoy wearing white sports socks all the time. Personally, I think I'd rather a few badly dressed blokes think I look gay.. :D

    oh, and for the record, Miller Light is NOT beer. It is a gnats urine excuse for Ale. Diet Coke is more likely to put hairs on your chest. :p

    I got a great satchel when I got my iPad and I love everything about it. I bought the same one Jack Bauer used on "24."

    Questions. How does a real man carry multiple objects with him and not use both his hands in the process?
    Why should masculinity be threatened by a ... bag?

    I'm from Sweden. There, everyone has a "man-bag." it's just accepted that we are comfortable enough with sexuality that it isn't a big deal. I don't know why it's so frowned upon over here, seems silly. It carries the junk I don't want in my pockets, what's so weird about that, I ask?

    Sounds like most people agree then and a few who dont. Well i have one too just wanted to ask the question and see the reactions.

    I bought the Tom Bihn Ristretto for ipad
    Ristretto for iPad: TOM BIHN
    comfy bag to wear and i carry iPad ( obviously ) screen cloth, charger + dock cable, and a leatherman PS4. enought room there for a small magazine and a few other things if needed. was a bit pricey though as cost $40 to mail to UK and bag is only $110. but its one of the best i have seen so far. nearly bought the muzetto for iPad.
    SFBags - WaterField Designs - Muzetto Bags - Laptop Bag - Man Bag - Personal Bag

    but this cost a little more. maybe ill get this too if i dont like the tom Bhin. but so far im loving it. only thing i will say is its a little small for a full size magazine. loads of pockets though.

    I don't know, but if I get the money to buy one of these, I'll be all over them. Look up Temple Bags. These things are awesome. Made with reclaimed WW2 uniform materials. Apparently made to order. I have to say, in the grand scheme of things, these are worth the money.
