Yesterday, the reverend Steve Jobs decreed that in 60 days, thou shalt have Apple iPads. In 60 days, it is also April Fools Day. No matter what you think of the Apple iPad, many fools will buy it and that means the same fools will also require accessories. One of which will be a bag in which to carry their coveted iPad.
Tom Bihn of Seattle has been making extraordinarily tough carrying cases and bags for laptops and other gadgets for over 30 years now. The Futurelooks Team has had the pleasure of reviewing their product in the past like their TSA Friendly Check Point Flyer Laptop Briefcase and their legendary Zephyr Laptop Bag. Their products are definitely a notch above in care and quality of build.
For the new Apple iPad owners that will retrieve their prized possessions in 60 days, Tom Bihn gives us two new products. An iPad sleeve called the “Cache” and a messenger bag called the “Ristretto“. Both of these products appear to be adaptations of existing products, but they just so happen to fit the iPad’s dimensions perfectly.
