iPad Sleeve, Case or Bag -- WITH a Strap ??

I'm looking for a lightweight iPad sleeve, case or bag that comes with an attached strap that's long enough to either go over the shoulder or around the neck.

It would be AWESOME if one side of the sleeve/bag/case was "open" so the iPad could be used without having to take it out... but I know that's a big request.

Does anything close to this exist? Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks!

Go to www.sfbags.com

No doubt the rest my sleeve fits my iPad perfectly!

You can order with a strap or not. These are ultra high quality!

Just checked and their site is down but they will be back shortly.

Anyone else have any ideas or suggestions?

Do not get a bag with a strap. You don't want to be walking around with a man purse.

Actually, it's for my mom. She's disabled, in a wheelchair, and would like to be able to have the iPad with her without having to hold it the entire time (either in the house or away from it).

Does it have a strap? Or, can one be attached?

Well that changes everything. Man purse just becomes a regular purse for a woman. Nothing wrong with that.

Doesn't look like you can attach one.

Right. But she wants something lightweight and preferably something the same size as the iPad. In other words, not a typical regular purse.

A sleeve with straps would be great. A sleeve with one side open so the iPad could still be used would be perfection.

This one is a little pricey, but it is a leather case with what looks to be like some great features. It has both a carry handle and an adjustable strap from 24"-42".

Unfortunately, they only have one picture posted. Good luck in your search!

No, you really should learn to read. The OP stated it's for his mom.

Skooba has a nice neoprene sleeve with an external pocket and a strap- - good buy for $15. I have one, although still waiting on the iPad itself.
