    Hey all

    I just bought the new iPad Pro 11” to replace a previous iPad that I lost last year. I had a simple sleeve for my previous iPad, but I was always putting it down somewhere and having to go back and fetch it. I am sure this why I lost that iPad. In any event I am looking for a messenger or sling bag that will fit my new iPad Pro with smart keyboard/folio along with a few accessories (charger, cables, and so on), as well as my iPhone 7, but at the same time is not too big. Someone gave me a Solo Active Sling Bag, but it almost too big for what I want. I really just need a 2 compartment case (main compartment for iPad and front compartment for accessories/phone) and shoulder strap, so I am not putting down the bag all the time. Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for help, suggestions, or advice.

    I have this for my 10.5 Pro - an 11 would certainly fit:

    Mine did develop a small tear in a seam - I think it was a delivered defect.

    I also have this one. It is real nice but pricey -

    Like a lot of other MacRumors posters, I'm a fan of Waterfield products. However, they do tend to be pretty expensive. Here's a list of the ones that are specifically for iPads. Personally, I'm thinking of getting the Muzetto. https://www.sfbags.com/collections/tablet-bags

    Hey guys

    I did find a nice bag at luggage shop in Littleton, CO where I rolling carry-on to have a shell replaced. The main compartment fits my iPad perfectly without being too big or small. Also there is a front compartment for my charger, cables, and wireless earbuds. The attached photo is this bag.

    Looks great. Now don't put your bag down and have to go back and get it like you did your iPad. lol... That would be something I'd do. lol

    This bag has a shoulder strap unlike the last sleeve, so I am less likely to do that.

    Wish that helped me. I don't wear my bag all day. I've been known to forget it when I put it down. lol

    I’d get the Tom Bihn Ristretto or Medium Cafe Bag at www.tombihn.com

    Wow, they have some very nice options there. I do prefer the look of the Muzetto, but liking the bit of extra capacity in the Bolt. (wondering if I can fit some my Beoplay H6 headphones in there along with an iPad Pro 12.9 + Brydge keyboard...)
