If you read over on the other 'man bag' thread in this forum so many people are buying shoulder bags or small messenger bags, like the Waterfield Muzeto, Tohn Bihn Ristro etc to carry your iPads and accessories.

But so many also say they bring their notebooks along as well ?? So are you carrying a backpack with your notebook and a shoulder bag for your iPad?

I can't imagine myself doing that.

But how do you travel light if you're now bringing your iPad along with your notebook?

I have a bunch of briefcases, messenger bags, laptop bags, etc. that I have collected over the years Just about all of them can fit other items, like a notepad, pens, gum, brochures, airplane tickets or even an iPad, along with my laptop. Throwing my iPad into my bag du jour only adds about 1.5 pounds.

When I need to bring my ipad and MacBook I just use my incase backpack. It's handy cause I can bring all my chargers and USB attachments and all the other junk I'll need through the day.

I do carry two bags. My backpack carries my work laptop and/or MBP 13" and my Muzetto of course carries my iPad.

I could easily put my iPad with its Apple case in my backpack, but when I go to lunch or run errands after work I still want to be able to carry my iPad without my backpack.

So yes it's an added bag, but at least I always have my iPad and Mifi always handy.

Can you post a picture of the incase bag, I've been considering getting one, but I'm not sure-for the price.

I also like the Muzetto but what about getting the one that is big enough to hold the 13 or 15 inch laptop, I'm sure you could also throw your iPad in there.

I have the incase sling "backpack", I really like it and don't carry it cross body. I carry it omy left shoulder. On a past trip to DC I had my 17" mbp, dslr, cords and cables in it and it stayed easily on my shoulder over a winter jacket.

Recently i've been able to cram my mbp and canon i70 printer along with a Avery label box with paper in it and a boat load of cords for charging crap in it. It holds a ton, and i can only imagine the bigger one holds gobs.

I liked the sling because it is thin and sleek and doesn't look like the typical backpack. It's a bag I'd repurchase all these later (i've had it for 3 years).

The fewe times I've brought both devices with me recently i've used 2bags because i have had the printer with the computer, and my ipad and in my everyday timbuk2 net book bag. I don't cart my mbp around with me that often, so that is the extent of my info! :)

Eta: my bag has some different pockets than they have in the current version from what i see on the website. In fact it could be a lot different in a variety of areas! lol!

here ya go:]
it pretty much holds everything i need. macbook, ipad, magic mouse, ipad charger, macbook charger w/ extender cable. and it has two pockets on the front which are really useful for little things, like micro fiber.
it can fit a lot more than what's pictured, sometimes i carry along a jacket or a few books or whatever.
