For many people, an iPad is only one of the myriad of things they're toting to work, so a briefcase with a whole lot more space for other things is the way to go. And this Norino Attache looks fit to do that job.
Made by Versetta, the stylish sack is designed for office professionals who increasingly depend on their iPads for getting things done in the workplace. It looks like a regular office briefcase, too, so you don't have to stick out like a sore thumb among your suit-wearing, "give me the net-net" peers.
A part of Versetta's iPad-loving Affari Collection, the Norino Attache features an iPad compartment on the outside front panel. When fully unzipped, the pocket reveals a padded iPad slot where you can slip in your tablet for safekeeping. Even better, you can use the iPad without lifting it off the bag, as the screen is fully usable, along with all the ports and buttons via cutout windows.
Since the iPad goes in its own place, you can use the two interior compartments for the rest of your workplace stash, like a laptop, books, document stacks and extra gear. Construction is a faux leather, with fabric lining for the interior and brushed brass hardware for the metal components. Other features include a wall zipper pocket, slide pocket, cell phone pocket, a top handle and an adjustable strap.
The Versetta Norino Attache is available in three colors: black, brown tan and cordova brown. Price is a bit steep, though, coming in at $229.
First things first, I don't think M-Edge set out trying to attract any men with this one. With the Destination Bag looking a lot like a female carrying purse, you know exactly who it's for. That surely does not bring anything negative to the table about this case because this is by far one of the best iPad carrying bags women will be able to find. Featuring vibrant colors like green, purple, red, black, brown, and brown/cream, there is sure to be a selection for anyone's color preference. M-Edge really went over the top with this one and it's a wonder they thought of it. Initially seeing this case out of its packaging I was amazed by the true quality that it brought forth. You know that popular designer purses that are out there like the Coach Purse and such, well this Destination Bag definitely competes on their level while bringing the functionality of an iPad carrying case.
With a convenient shoulder strap to help you reduce the weight of your luggage in case you are housing some heavy accessories inside with your iPad, the Destination Bag just about has it all. Surely it is one of the most elegant and user friendly ways to carry your iPad. What we like best is that you can turn your iPad carrying case into a fully fledged purse with this one. For women who don't want to carry around their purse and their iPad case, because I don't know who would, M-Edge designed this bag so that you can stash any of your belongings inside to provide easy accessibility and more functionality.
Inside of the case are two elastic pockets that can store anything you may wish but most importantly they are perfectly suited for iPad accessories. In the interior, you will also find a zipper sleeve made just to house your iPad. This way, if you have makeup or other materials inside your case that you wouldn't want to be rubbed off onto your iPad, you know that it's safe inside its sleeve. For smooth access to your items the Destination Bag opens through a specially designed zipper that's easy to use. The M-Edge Destination Bag is really one of the more appealing bags on the market. I couldn't see someone who was striving to find looks as well as the best in functionality looking at any other bag.
