Review: iPad Messenger Bag from Skooba Designs
Ok, so you’ve bought the new super cool iPad – what better way to protect your investment than with a durable, stylish bag! The Netbook/iPad Messenger bag from Skooba Designs is perfect! It has plenty of pockets to hold not only your iPad but you cell phone, pens, notepads — even a water bottle! I love how lightweight it is, and the strap is adjustable so that you can choose to shorten it and carry it on your shoulder or lengthen it for wearing across your chest. I had to leave for business the day after I received the messenger bag for review – can you say perfect timing! It was a breeze to carry through the airport along with my other luggage, in fact – I sometimes even forgot I was wearing it! I was able to eliminate almost all of my other smaller bags, even my purse – and just carry the Skooba bag! All of my belongings were perfectly organized thanks to all of the handy compartments and pockets. It was so easy to find what I was looking for – no digging around like you would your purse to find your phone, wallet, etc.. The bag comes in four stylish colors: white (shown above), red, blue, and black. It’s the only bag you’ll need to keep you organized while on the go!
