    Bare? Case you like? Anyone have a cool satchel that's not overly large or stupidly dainty?

    Considering an iPP but moving the thing around seems a valid concern. I don't think using my computer case that holds a 17" laptop is ideal.

    I have back side cover and front side cover(both from Apple), they are not cheep but protect iPad Pro very well, and light weight. Plus I have a custom bag(like for laptop sleeve-ish) to put my iPad Pro to carry around. You can look up on Esty or Ebay for those sleeves/bags, prices are vary. I like mine which I bought on Esty as a custom order.

    I just put it in my Herschel bag with 15" laptop compartment. It has an iPad pocket as well, but the Pro doesn't fit.

    It does mean having to put my MacBook in another sleeve when I want to bring both, but that's probably a better place for it anyways (just saw someone with a hole in the top part of his Herschel Pop Quiz bag which was made by the corner of his laptop when the bag fell).

    I carry mine in a messenger bag and it is protected by the silicon back and smart keyboard from Apple. I'd like it to be naked but laying it down and writing with the Apple Pencil seems to me that it would scratch a little easier image.jpeg

    I actually carry mine in my old MacBook Pro neoprene sleeve. It fits great and carries the Pencil to the side as well as the charger and cord. Truly helps the feel of replacing my laptop even though there are obvious needs to make it a complete laptop replacement.

    I have an iPad compartment in my adidas sling backpack and surprisingly, it actually fits the iPad pro. This is easily the best most comfortable backpack I've ever had. The back pocket has an extra large tablet pocket as well as another pocket behind it that can hold a charger or headphones. I highly HIGHLY recommend this one

    Thanks for the suggestions. I like the Adidas sling back pack but I can't use something like that in my profession. I'll probably have to do a combination of a messenger bag like above and the Thule MacBook case.

    I also looked at this one from Best Buy but I'm not sure it would be "professional" enough. It basically gets 5/5 stars.

    It fits nicely in the dedicated slot within my bag with my 15" MBPr.

    Yet I'm using it less and less. It was fun to experience it with the smart keyboard and Apple Pencil. But at the end of the day I've relegated it to recreational home use. It's just too bulky and cumbersome. Oh sure it's light and thin, but it's height and width add more bulk than I anticipated.

    It's a fine Kindle reader for around the house.

    Expensive, but so is everything Apple.

    I had an older version of the Tom Bihn Ristretto vertical messenger bag for a 13 inch macbook air and it works great for the ipad pro. I like how it isn't too big but still big enough to carry around some stuff.

    i use a nomad art satchel. IPP fits perfect where the sketchpad goes and has a plate for a tripod (important for plein air drawing and sketching). it also has a pencil loop that fits the pencil perfect-very secure. tons of pockets everywhere, mesh pockets, water resistant, high quality build. made by and for artist.

    I use this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00JO70ZDW and sometimes I also need to cary both my iPad pro and MacBook Retina and they both fits in separate compartments. When I bring both I use the iPad Pro as secondary display using DuetDisplay.

    I use this leather/felt satchel to carry the IPP with me where I need a more formal appearance. It seems quite well made and I think it looks quite nice. It is a bit of a hassle to keep my cat's hair off it because the cat loves to sleep on it. It is rather thin so just the IPP and some papers and a charger fit in the main area with an outside pocket for phone or something about that size is all that fit in it.
    It does take about 3 weeks to get to the U.S. from europe.

    I really like this one. My only complaint is that I wish it had a shoulder strap.

    I assume you chose the iPad Pro with keyboard sizing option? They also have a customizable size which would probably allow me to make it a little thicker to carry a couple small files.

    I have two options:

    I use this portfolio when the iPP is on its own or when I'm throwing it in another bag: IMG_2155.jpg

    Or when I'm carrying other stuff I use this Rick Shaw Zero Messenger Bag in medium. It will even hold my MacBookPro:
