incase-sling-bag-for-ipad

Years ago, when the iPad first was released, I reviewed the Incase Travel Kit Plus for iPad and found it was perfect for carrying the iPad, Apple Bluetooth keyboard, cables and chargers, and the included stand.  Well, perfect if it only had a shoulder strap, in my opinion.  Incase has updated the iPad travel kit [...]
