    hmm... good leather bags are not cheap, and inexpensive ones are usually not so good, it's a tough choice.

    I found you some nice ones that can carry water bottles, but they're really expensive, (from $90 to $500) so just take a look as a "window shopping" fun. :)

    Saddleback Leather Co.

    and

    Far Horizon Traders with: Hand Stitched Leather Satchel and Camel Leather Messenger Bags

    I'm sure there are more you can find on internet that'll cost less, but I thought these are pretty cool eventhough they're not designed for ipad. Good luck!

    Absolutely, and thank you for the lead. The quality looks amazing, and the $64 price tag on a leather bag really can't be beat, if the quality is there. I can't wait to get it in hand.

    My satchel arrived today. I'll do a detailed review soon. My first impressions, it's quality and craftsmanship is outstanding. Easily the best made bag I've ever owned. I'm blown away by the quality. It DOES however have a HUGE issue... The smell is really bad. It's camel leather, so the oder from the tanning process is brutal. But damn, this is a nice bag. I need to figure out how to get the smell out of this. hahaha

    I agree exactly. The odor was a bit to take, but mine has subsided after being aired-out for a week or so.

    I got mine for half-off since it was a blem. I also ended up getting a bag for my laptop since the owner had a blem for half-off for that also.

    Great company to deal with.

    Nice, but no protection to the iPad

    I'm going with this...

    It is fully padded and offers protection for the iPad...something I think is impt if you're actually carrying the iPad around. Bumps are inevitable.

    If you go for their 13" version, it would possible hold a water bottle. Just an idea....good luck.

    It's 3" in depth. It's best suited as a carry satchel with your iPad already protected by a fitted case.

    I have my iPad in a Belkin Clear vue case, then that sits inside an InCase 10" netbook padded sleeve, and then THAT goes into the leather satchel, so it's very well padded and protected. Bring on the bumps! haha
