A solid and very protective, yet lightweight bag is a must-have iPad accessory while you’re on the move. I think we’ve already covered why special bags are better than all purpose bags: basically it boils down to the protective walls and pads which keep your gadgets protected without adding a lot of additional weight to the bag.
The Loopbag Transit iPad Case is actually a small and stylish bag made from a durable and waterproof material called Airguard. Unlike other waterproof bags, this one features waterproof coil zippers as well, so your belongings truly are protected from getting wet in the event you get caught by the rain.
On the inside this iPad bag is padded with double density EPE. One of the best features of Loopbag Transit bags is the EVA foam sleeve compartment which fits smaller laptops and, of course, the iPad, and it can fit the iPad even if it is inside another case.
The pockets to hold your other iPad accessories are generous in size, and the elastic cloth straps in the main compartment will help you quickly find items inside. To help you even more, the Transit iPad Case bag has two parallel zippers which open wide from side to side, enabling easy access even to the bag bottom. Moreover, all variants of the Loopbag Transit bag come with a brightly colored inner lining, which makes it easy to see stuff inside the bag because of the contrast. There are three color choices: Anth exterior with bright green lining, Coffee exterior with Olive lining and Anth exterior with Azure lining.
The shoulder strap is comfortable, thanks to its neoprene padding and adjustable length. There is also a small handle on the back side of the bag, just in case you want to carry it as a handbag. The handle is nicely padded, and thus gentle on your hand.
The buckles and hooks are made from matte varnished metal, giving the bag quite an expensive look, although it doesn’t cost as much as you’d expect. It falls in the $100 price range and is available on the Loopbag website. We like this bag.
