How purse-like is this case? I just cant tell. Granted it's expensive and doesn't have a ton of pockets.

Tumi makes great stuff. However, I think this is extremely purse like. Looks like one of my ex's leather Coach bags. I think you can do better for the iPad for much less.

I knew it! Man, finding something that doesn't make you look like Pricilla the drag queen is easier said than done. I wish the manufacturers would just commit to making bags for just men and not these transgender bags.

Have you poked around Levenger at all?

They have a bomber messenger that might work for you....

Personally, I say screww it. If you like the bag and are comfortable with yourself, then get it.

The Tumi you linked to looks like a leather computer bag, IMO. It is a messenger bag, looks masculine enough to me. If you want something that looks feminine, turn to Vera Bradley and her thousands of floral print bags.

And BTW, I have a Men's Coach bag for my work computer. You really think these look feminine? :confused:

And this is what I carry my iPad in (only in gray. although I plan on getting the darker brown version, too):

For what it's worth I like but wouldn't buy as looks too masculine!!

I do however love your iPad bag Hammie - especially if it was in pale-ish grey! Though granted still not feminine.

Thanks, trouble! I love my bag. Not too small, but not too big. It is 12" wide by 11" high.

Hammie, where do you get your bag?

The bag is a Bottega Veneta. I got it from the Tyson's store in Virginia.

There is nothing masculine about that bag if that is what you are asking.

Personally, I like it. My question is how much (if any) padding is there? If it's padded, I might buy it.
