    Now we get our beautiful Portenzo/DODO cases, what bag are you using when you have to carry your iPad around?
    As we all know, the case itself doesn't provide much protection other than preventing scratches. My bag is always full of heavy textbooks, Poetenzo seems not strong enough to be squeezed...so after getting my dream case for iPad, now I'm in search for a compatible bag or sleeve to said case. Any suggestion?

    I'm seriously considering this:

    Honestly, I doubt I'll order another bag once my Portenzo arrives. This is my first iPad and Portenzo, but I think the case will provide enough protection for general day-to-day use. I'm not very hard on my toys, and the iPad will mostly be used at home and in "controlled" environments, ie the office, coffee shops, etc.

    When I travel with it, I'll likely just put it into whatever other bag (or backpack) I'm carrying that day.

    Hope I'm right about not needing another case! Portenzo isn't cheap--and I upgraded my notebook to the limited edition white! :) Guess I'll decide after it arrives.

    I really want the Waterfield Muzetto but they're pricey. I thought about also getting the Timbuk2 for the network/iPad.

    Mysterygirl did you get the elastic strap on your white one? I'm still thinking about if I want to upgrade.

    I think people get caught up in having to have every accessory when they get a new toy...

    The Portenzo to me is the case and what I will be carrying it in - if I am traveling with it then whatever luggage or backback or camera bag I have with me...

    Yes, I did get the elastic strap. I liked the look of the black strap against the white case. I also think the strap is more functional (on a really flat surface, the strap can be used to help the case stand horizontally for movie viewing).

    I really hope I made the right decision with the white one!

    People are getting cases to protect their cases now?

    I can't speak for other people but I'm looking for a bag that's will fit by Portenzo & also function as a purse as I don't carry a whole lot of things around.

    My thoughts exactly. You get a case to protect your iPad and choose one that is also aesthetically pleasing but you're worried about now damaging the case so you're going to put the case inside a brown paper bag, thus hiding that new stylish case? If you're that concerned, skip the case and just get a rugged sleeve/bag.

    OP, if I go to your house, am I going to find plastic on the furniture and runners on the floor?

    I have to carry lots of books around along the iPad so obviously I need something strong. And then I have to walk around a whole building with my iPad in hand so I need Portenzo rather than a big shoulder bag.

    Maybe it's because I didn't give clear description before, but you really think you are smart, don't you?

    THIS. First thing I thought of when I saw this thread.

    WOW people. Put your money in the bank, invest it, donate it to Japan.
    But a case to protect your case? Lmfao @ some of the ways people spend their money.

    From a woman's stand point, I don't want my portenzo in with my keys/wallet in a purse etc. Would like to find a bag that has separate area for the portenzo, I want the leather to stay nice.

    I've thought about the Timbuk2 for iPad, but hate Velcro. Wish they would use magnets or just buckles. Anyone remove the Velcro or cover it?

    I ordered the 23 1/2 white portenzo and can't wait to put my white iPad in it :)

    Anyone know if portenzo fits into the netbook pocket in the freestyle netbook messenger? Or how about any of the XS messenger laptop pockets?
