We wrote about the best iPad 2 cases but we also wanted to highlight some iPad 2 bags. Cases are great for carrying your iPad around and keeping it protected, however, a good bag will let you store your iPad as well as some additional accessories. Here are some of the (current) best iPad 2 bags.
The Best iPad 2 Bags
There are iPad 2 cases, bags, folios, sleeves, and screen protectors but one of the most versatile accessories you can get for your new iPad is a really good bag. A bag is more than a case because it typically has room for accessories and/or adapters (or both). Bags are nice for when you are traveling or when you want to store a little bit of extra stuff.

The BoxWave iPad 2 bag is an interesting little concept. It’s like taking the carrying ability of the bag with the protection of a case and rolling them into one product.

Timbuk2 Freestyle iPad 2 Messenger Bag
I won’t lie. I love Timbuk2. They make exceptional products and I’ve owned no less than 3 of their bags which all serve various purposes. They have great high quality stitching, materials, and allow you to store more than enough.
The Freestyle includes most of the Classic’s most popular features, including a distinctive three-panel multicolor design, a durable ballistic nylon exterior, a waterproof TPU liner that keeps the elements at bay, and an adjustable cam buckle that makes it easy to carry the bag.
However, the Freestyle is also equipped with a fuzzy, felt-lined laptop sleeve that holds smaller laptops, in addition to your Kindle and Nook. Add in a front organizer and key fob to keep you sane and you have a terrific messenger bag for commuting to work or school.
The Freestyle messenger bag measures 12.8 by 8.85 by 5.12 inches (W x H x D), weighs 1.67 pounds, and carries a lifetime warranty.
This one is a bit more than the others (but worth it). It sells for around $55.
Scout iPad 2 Bag By STM
The Scout is definitely aimed at a more masculine type of iPad 2 bag. It is made of very rugged material and has a high-density foam padded iPad section to help protect from external bumps, a secure buckle closure, and a velcro closure over the iPad section.
STM is fairly famous for very high-quality products and this bag gets a consistent 4/5 star rating so it’s a safe bet that if you like this style of bag, it’s a good value for the money.
