Looks fine. If it wasn't very wide then it may have looked like a man purse but it looks like a bag I have.

If you associate a man purse with messenger bags and over the shoulder bags... chances are it's a man purse to you.

But who give a f what people think.

I like the bag.

A) men, gay or otherwise, don't typically hit on other men because they're carrying any bag ... even if it's a true purse.
B) your wife will make fun of you regardless, it is what wives do. However, if you get upset she will turn this around on you so fast you'll be apologizing to her and wiping her tears away. You won't know why, but you'll be doing it.
C) I have no C but I will soon no doubt.

Nice bag. I'm debating on whether i want a smaller bag for mine. I just picked up a new messenger bag hat will house my work laptop, papers, and iPad. I may want another one for when I'm just out and about with the family.

I have seen na few that interest me, but now I need to decide. I will probably get another bag before summer.

I think that is the solution to the ultimate success of the iPad. My wife loves hers. She carries it around everywhere, in her purse. I think thats the key.

A resurgence in Men's Carrying Bags is necessary for the iPad to become something I would feel comfortable bringing everywhere with me.

I don't want to be the only one though. Anyone else out there want to go purse shopping with me?

Women also feel the need for shoes in every possible color and style, and refer to pocketbooks as "adorable," and "cute." No thanks. I reject your iPad man purse and substitute my iPhone in my pocket.

I was trying to carry the Ipad in an average sized laptop bag but that was way to big and more of a chore to carry around. This so far has been perfect. It's really small and will fit the iPad while it's in a case and the strap is adjustable enough so you can have it down by your hips or up higher under your arm if you like. And look at the price. Compared to all these fancy iPad bags this thing works perfect at a fraction of the cost

My wife had the final say in what I could get (she refused to be seen with me if I had a purse on lol). This bag passed her inspection as "it looks like a laptop bag".

OP here. This thread got out of control. The bag arrived and it is exactly what I was looking for. I can actually squeeze my 13 inch laptop in there with the iPad and the chargers for both. With just the iPad it is very light. The bag is well made but it is soft without padding so it won't provide much protection. I keep the iPad in an apple case inside a net book sleeve so I'm not worried. Like the reviews said the leather was plasticy but I just rolled it around until it got soft. The bag gives a military surpluss fell after it get a little dirty and broken in. Definately doesn't give off the murse vibe. But the shoes I got to match do.

It took about a week to get to me but my location is a tad weird. I'm a contractor in iraq so the shipping address is a APO,AE. The color I got was tan which is a very nice color. I also got a brown NO. 155 card case so I can stop using a wallet altogether. I am actually surprised no one mentioned this case yet in this thread or any thread in the forum.

A real simple solution here is just a slim briefcase With a small laptop sleveve that can be used with or without a shoulder strap. But I guess if you don't really need a briefcase for work then it's a bit large for just an iPad.

I got someone to take pics of me with it today to see what it would look like on a picture. So thats me and my new tan Billykirk case.

I like it "on" - wasn't keen on it "off". LOL!

I confess to being an early 40's "chick" though - so i'm not guessing i count for much in the opinion area either. OK, i'm a mom of 3 - i know i don't count at this point in life! :p

Enjoy the bag. And i will have to go hunting for the part for the no wallet - i'm always seeking solutions to that problem myself.

Everybody has a opinion which is how it will be with anything, I see the Wifi iPads arguing with the 3g iPads (pretty funny stuff). But another thing I like about the bag is it is about 1.5 " thick and about a tad over 11" tall , something a women wouldn't carry because it would cause the person to have to dump anything out to get to something on the bottom. And the bag is actually a exact copy of a WW2 map case which is pretty mucho if you ask me.

Thx for the compliment, it was actually really hard for me to decide on one alot of the ones out there are unisex type bags. So I am happy I found the Billykirk website because I was losing all hope there for awhile......LOL

Very cool.

Mine is more of a Unisex type bag even though it is from the Men's line. I like it and I got the big thumb's up from the wife on appearance so that is all that matters, right?

Your's is very "indy"-like. :cool:

You should show pics of the inside with the iPad inside. Just so we get an idea of interior size.

Thats a great idea, so thats what I did. With the iPad in its Apple case there is more room for something else if that something else isn't huge.

Here is what I bought for my iPad it's a but pricey but worth it to me.

Well everybody's needs are different depending on profession and daily routine. I find that a single compartment that holds the iPad and maybe something else is all I need and want. If I find that it doesn't meet my needs then I will buy something else that does.

I'm not sure if your reaction of $325 is because you feel that is a lot or that it is less than you would be willing for a bag.

BTW, how much would you spend for a bag?

What would you say to someone who spent over $500? Or over $1000.00 for a bag?

That was just my knee jerk reaction. I feel like we, as iPad users, are getting raked over the coals on the cost for our accessories.

And I guess since my portfolio lost over %40 I'm a little shy about spending so much on bags.

But trust me I've spent boo coo bucks on bags in the past.

It's not how much you spend on something it's how much that something is worth to you.

But seriously, it only has one interior pocket?

I know the question wasn't directed at me but I find it a interesting question..... I think I would feel indifferent. If someone see's value in a bag then that to me is all that matters regardless of actual cost.

I don't disagree with you at all. I find it interesting that this "value" argument is the same that we Mac users use to explain our preference in computers.

The only purpose the bag has is to carry the iPad. If the iPad didn't exist then I wouldn't carry a bag at all. So those are my needs and the bag fills those needs exactly. I like to take a very minimalist approach to things and I find that when someone carries a bigger bag it has a tendency to fill up with useless things. I'm the type of person that doesn't even like to carry a wallet or petty cash so I carry my ID's and my debit card in my pocket.

Still waiting for my Skooba Netbook/iPad bag here :(
Did you order from Amazon? I got mine from Amazon Friday after seeing mention of it in this thread last week (two day Prime shipping.) Great bag, by the way - perfect fit for the Ipad without a case, would probably fit with a small, close-fitting case on it. Very protective, too.

Also my reasoning, which is why I bought one too. I only want to carry the iPad and perhaps some papers.

I admit to spending some time thinking about the color. I mostly wear black accessories (shoes, belt, jacket) so black made sense for me.

I just received my Maxpedition Colossus bag today from www.ebags.com (the only place that had it in stock in black). The strap is a little bigger than I would like, but it will hold the iPad and some other things I like to carry with me like my camcorder, digital camera, and accessories for all 3 items. There is a nice review of it here:

http://the-gadgeteer.com/2007/10/05/maxpedition_colossus_versipack/

I also got the JANUS accessory that adds a small pouch to the strap to keep my iPhone and wallet.

If anyone wants specific pictures, I can post them.

I got it for $72, which was $70 off and I freaking love it!

A zip pocket inside, as wells a little open pouch (no zipper), slots for pens, a slim pocket on the front and the same on the back with a zipper. Ipad fits perfectly inside (see it?--i left it on) with ample room to add a wallet or a digital camera or both if necessary.

Finally got a chance to take some pics. This is the bag I carry around all the time. It seems to go well with both casual, business and everything in between. Work days I dress in Chinos and a dress shirt. Weekends tend to be jean or shorts and a t-shirt.

Face on and closed. It has a snap closure on the bottom. This helps keep the flap from slapping and making noises while walking.

This one is not vinyl. It is real leather. They do make some coated canvas bags, but not this one. Leather on the outside and cloth lined on the inside.

Seems to be very durable, as well.

So have you got the case yet if so how do you like it. I have used mine everyday and no one has noticed in a negative way at all.

Just got mine yesterday. iPad fits well. Strap was different than what appears on their site. It has a normal bar buckle and attaches using swivels to the rings, which are round instead of D rings. Works out ok. I have it on the farthest hole and it carries fine slung across the chest. Today is my first day using it so far.
