Gentlemen, how will you carry your iPad Mini around?

Gentlemen, how will you carry your iPad Mini around? A sling case that small for a man?
Ideas? I'm tempted to get one, but haven't figured this out yet...

I was surprised to find that at least two of my wind jackets with inner pocket that can fit the mini. While tight, it beats an extra bag on the go. Time to move iPhone to hand pockets

You have no idea how happy I was when my mini fit into my winter jacket pocket.

Minimalist, naked goodness. Nothing more is necessary.

While I certainly respect companies like Pack Smooch, Hard Graft, and Mujjo, I can't see why anyone would pay so much more for the same quality found on Etsy.

I can't think of any situation where I would need to take an iPad to the mall.

I like to stop at Barnes & Noble and read magazines. Often, they talk about various websites or apps, which I download or review on my iPad. I also record info into Evernote, on my iPad.

It's also cool to use when waiting in long lines, or while your wife is "looking" at clothes or trying them on.

Speck case (paid $1) and used it today at an interview to show a power point presentation and couple pdf files. Worked out perfect and adobe reader was key. Interviewer was impressed with having the presentation with me versus just talking about it.

Leg pocket in cargo pants/shorts, or the top of my cooler that I carry my lunch to work in.

Basically the same thing I did when they released the iPad 2 cover. Took the sensor magnets and attaching mount out of an apple Smart Cover and put them into something else
