I have an Incase Travel Kit Plus and love it. Only downside is that it doesn't have a shoulder strap so I wind up carrying it around in my hand. Whereupon I look like I'm carrying a bible and about to knock on your door. Any other options?

I use a crumpler bag which has more than enough space for the wireless keyboard. But it doesn't have a seperate pocket for it. Which maybe a deal breaker. The crumpler site is down at the moment so I cannot find the link for you.

Have a look at Tom Bihn Messenger Bags, more precisely Ristretto for iPad. Slightly expensive but the quality is very good with lifetime warranty.

There is also a good review on Youtube of this bag.

BestBuy has a netbook sleeve by Swissgear that has a pocket for the ipad, an additional pocket large enough for the Apple BT keyboard, 2 outer pockets which store foldaway handles as well as miscellaneous small items such as the wall charger and it comes with a strap.

I think it was around $30 or so when i got it.

Do you men the Swissgear Sherpa 10.2" netbook sleeve? If it is, could you post some pictures of wear the keyboard goes in? :)

Nope, not the Sherpa: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Wenger+-+Legacy+Double+Slimcase+Netbook+Case+-+Black/9921193.p?id=1218195464803&skuId=9921193&st=Swissgear%20legacy&contract_desc=null#tabbed-customerreviews

Sorry, I actually no longer have this case. For right now I'm using a reular netbook sleeve with my Otterbox commuter, then it gets tossed into my backpack.

The Legacy case definitely did the job if I needed to transport my iPad, protect it, and keep any bulkiness to a minimum. The ability to hold extra stuff like the keyboard and my Overdrive were a big plus.

A little late, but +1 the Ristretto will fit a keyboard fine. It's a nice bag, great for travel.
