I just recently purchased the Padster for my iPad, it is replacing a bag I just bought from Booq. The Padster is bag specifically designed for an iPad. Let me start by saying I utterly love my Booq bags, I own three of them for my 17″ Macbook Pro. The problem I had with my Booq Taipan Shadow XS is that it is way too small in every aspect. The compartment that holds the iPad is too restrictive, you can only really use it with a naked iPad (no case). We all know how slippery a naked iPad is, your just asking to drop it. With the iPad in, there is little space for anything else. It is a really tight bag with a shoulder strap that is way to short. It is so short you can only put the strap on your shoulder, you can forget about slinging it over your neck. I already have my RMA and it is going back to Booq.
Now back to the Padster bag. It is a very beautiful and spacious bag. The detail to the construction is top notch. It has a beautiful soft leather flap that covers the main opening to the bag which can be left open or zippered shut. There is a neoprene pocket that holds the ipad and there is ample room to put in an iPad with it’s case as I am currently doing.
There is ample room for me to put in my headphones, point & shoot camera, magazines, etc… You won’t go wrong with this bag, it is very stylish and the shoulder strap is really long and adjustable. I am 6′ 10″ and I have no issue with slinging this over my neck. I will only wear bags in this fashion as I usually carry around expensive gadgets and would hate to have it slip off my shoulder and fall to the ground or someone snatch it as they are running past me.
