Just bought myself a bluetooth keyboard this weekend to go with my iPad. Love it for taking notes during lectures. Now I just need a case that can carry both but is still relatively small and light. Any recommendations?

I use a Spire messenger back for travelling but for carrying the iPad during errands, etc., this case is awesome. I know for a fact that this compact little case also accommodates the Bluetooth keyboard.

That CaseLogic is nice, let me know if it'll fit the Apple Bluetooth wireless keyboard. Dimensions on the keyboard are: 12.8" (H) x 7.3" (W) x 1.4" (D)

Dims on the CaseLogic are 11.6 x 2 x 10.2 inches so it might be a squeeze.

For now I'm using an Eagle Creek Travel Bug Daypack since it fits the keyboard (I have it in a Waterfield designs slip case):

The Timbuk XS is pretty nice as well, and that also fits the keyboard -- I just need Christmas to roll around so I can ask for another bag. ;)

slightly different style...but the CaseLogic that I posted a link to does fit the wireless keyboard.

From the dimensions above you would think that the BT keyboard would not fit but according to several amazon reviews, it does. We'll see. I'll keep you posted.

When I had an Otterbox Commuter, I usually used a netbook sleeve to give the ipad additional protection during transport and to hold extra accessories such as a mobile hotspot or even my BT keyboard.

Two of which I would get again if I had to are both by Wenger Swissgear. One at WalMart had the main compartment big enough for the ipad in Commuter case and a pocket big enough for the kb, it was less than $20. The other Wenger case I found at BestBuy (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Wenger+-+Legacy+Double+Slimcase+Netbook+Case+-+Black/9921193.p?id=1218195464803&skuId=9921193&st=wenger%20swissbook%20netbook&cp=2&lp=11) was similar but also had stow away handles and a removable shoulder strap. This one was a few bucks more.
