If you're in the market for a messenger bag to hold your iPad or iPad 2, along with the rest of your regular man-about-town ensemble, the Rickshaw Bagworks Messenger Bag for iPad 2 should make for an interesting pick. A remake of the company's Zero Messenger bag, it takes on the same general design and make -- save, of course, for the iPad-friendly part.
To accommodate your Apple iPad 2 tablet, they added a padded sleeve in front of the main compartment, where you can throw in either a naked or a case-wearing iPad. Behind the pocket sits what's essentially a large sack with a generous room for your stash (the product page claims paper files, a sweater, a book and a notebook can be bundled in).
The Rickshaw Bagworks Messenger Bag for iPad 2 is a square profile messenger bag that measures 10 x 11.25 x 3.75 inches and weighs a mere pound. Bag bottom is padded to protect your sensitive gear, with two small front pockets, a D-ring for attaching a cross strap and horizontal velcro strips inside the primary compartment for attaching accessories.
Material is X-Pac waterproof sailcloth, a high-performance fabric that's ideal for those at risk of getting their bags wet (such as when you live under rainy climes or when you're a klutz who regularly spill your drinks on your stuff). The exterior flap is rounded with a velcro closure, while the strap comes with a quick adjust cam for even more convenient handling.
Made by hand upon order in the company's home base of San Francisco, the Messenger Bag for iPad 2 is now available for orders online. Price is $75.
