    I want to carry the iPad around with me, and have my hands free. I want something big enough to hold the iPad and a few other things. I don't want it to be any bigger than it has to be. I prefer leather (brown or black), or textile and leather.

    So far, the nicest ones I've seen are from Tumi. They make a few models that can hold the iPad in a case like the Apple case (which I'm using right now). Their dimensions are around 10 x 12 x 1.5 inches. Yeah, they cost (around $250), but I don't mind that. I want something that looks good with business or casual clothes.

    Can anyone recommend these or others that are similar?

    Thanks.
    Peter

    I love my Muzetto Portable from SF Bags/Waterfield Designs. There are a couple of threads discussing bags, etc. Run a search on Muzetto and you will find lots of info in this forum, including photos.

    I have this Tom Bihn bag on order. Will be here tomorrow.

    I have it coming in the Olive/Cayenne color combo. I wanted something that was a good mix of professional and casual. My wife gave me a bunch of grief for carrying my black Timbuk2 Small Messenger bag into church yesterday. She asked me if I was going to church or hiking? :D It was all in fun.

    I also have the Tom Bihn bag (impressions thread here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=897336). It doesn't come in leather as the OP was looking for, but it's still a nice looking bag and is the perfect size for the iPad and a few essentials.

    Guess I didn't read carefully enough.

    Yeah, your thread is what sent me over the edge to order the Ristretto. ;)

    I know a lot of people are going gaga over the Waterfield Mussetto but it is just a tad too effeminate for me. Just my opinion obviously.

    I have had both men and women admiring my Muzetto, and I know at least one of my male friends will be ordering one and the female friend with whom I spent the day yesterday is seriously considering getting one, too.

    While the Musetto looks casual it also can easily slip into a more professional setting as well. Some of the leather satchels I have seen are almost a little too rough-hewn and are definitely too casual for a business environment.

    I really think the Muzetto is a nice looking bag and features wise it's great for the iPad and other accessories. Personally, i just not much of a leather guy.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    Thanks for the various suggestions. I followed the links, did some searching and reading, and the Muzetto is really tempting me. I suspect that's what I'll end up getting. The Binh looks really practical, but more rugged-looking than I want. Hey, if someone says I look effeminate, I'll just whack them with my man purse! ;)

    To Manatee,

    It's not a "Man Purse".

    It's a "Manly Purse"!

    I do a lot of 18th century re-enacting (American Revolutionary War), in those days most men wore bags like the Muzetto. It was called either a haversack or a hunting pouch. The difference was in what it was used for.

    Try telling an American Rifleman of that time period that he was carrying a "Man Purse" and you would not like result. :D

    If you carry guns and ammunition in it it's a holster. If not, well then it's just a purse. ;)
