How to carry and iPad Mini when you dont have a back-pack or laptop bag?


On the sutface, this might seem like a stupid question, but not for me.

I am in a quandary regarding how to best safely transport my new iPad mini, since I do not have a back pack ir laptop bad to "throw it in to", so to speak?

To date, I have not found any sleeves with carrying handles for the mini. What I have seen has been for the iPad, which leaves a lot of empty room. There is a leather company that does a $129 mini pouch, but I am not really fond of shoulder bags. Again, the iPad mini sleves do not have handles.

I live in NYC, if that makes a difference. At the very least, I want to take my mini to and from work.

Is anyone familiar with products that might solve this problem?

Maybe you can find your case here. There are many iPad mini sleeves with handles. Hope it can help you.

I picked up a really nice bag from Target that is designed for either the iPad or iPad mini. It has a handle and shoulder strap. The bag itself is made by Targus - which by the way makes awesome products - and costs just $25. It has lined pockets for the mini and can also hold other essentials like pens or stylus' and the charger etc.

Personally I do find the bag to be the right size for the mini. It is well protected in the padded compartment and well worth the money spent.

Here's a link to the Targus website and a description of the bag, but it is cheaper at Target by about $18

My wife and I both use this bag; it's the perfect size for a iPad Mini. It's a lot smaller than it looks on the eBags mannequin but it holds quite a bit of stuff for its size. I use it for overseas travel; it holds everything that I need for a long day. I even put a Nikon DSLR and lens in its main compartment when the camera isn't on my shoulder. I use the tiny locking carabiners sold at sporting goods counters to deter pickpockets.

At 27% off it's a very good deal:

Try Best Buy for a case with a handle that shouldn't be too expensive and fit the Mini nicely. Like the Giants, Jets, or Rutgers? I have seen small cases there for each with a handle. I think Targus makes them.

Also, I don't know if you have a Five Below store in NYC. Obviously the price is right and they carry lots of ipad knockoff things.

Try a ShirtPax.

I know the guy. He's just getting started. If you e-mail him, he will probably send you one of his test versions.
