STM Scout

RH Numbers

Designed specifically for the iPad, this stylish offering from Aussie outfit STM will take a netbook instead if that's what you want to take with you. You've a choice of black or olive - I'd suggest the latter, shown here, but its rugged canvas looks good in either hue.

STM Scout

The padded tablet pocket has its own cover, while the main flap folds over to protect two other pockets. The strap is clipped on, and is a little rough along the edges. It makes for a natty man bag, but its size and construction stop it looking too handbag.
