What to Look for When Choosing an iPad Bag

With modern technology being all around us and many students required to take iPads or tablets to class, it is essential that we find a safe way to carry these precious objects without damaging them or ourselves. Most people go for the trendiest design or the boldest colours, but there is real purpose in putting some thought into your iPad bag before buying one. Here are some tips on what to look for when you are shopping for an iPad bag:

  • Protection: iPads are expensive and one of the reasons you need a bag to carry it in is to provide protection during transit. While most people choose shockproof covers for their iPads or tablets to provide protection against bumps and falls that may damage it, it is also essential to provide additional protection in the bag in which it is carried. Look for padding that provides ample support and protection against the shock of a fall. 
  • Custom-made pocket: Your iPad or tablet will be much safer and more stable inside the iPad bag if it has a pocket or slot specifically created for the iPad. This means that the iPad will fit snugly into the bag and have protection around it, and will not fall around inside the bag or fall out of it unexpectedly.
  • Fasteners: Ideally, the iPad bag should have a pocket or space especially designed to store the iPad, and it should be able to close or secure the iPad with a fastener or some kind of closing mechanism or fastener to prevent it from slipping out and falling. Certain iPad bags also provide a clasp that can be locked for added security and to prevent theft.
  • Fabrics: While a trendy motif or bold colours can be great, it is best to choose a bag that is made of quality materials. The fabric should be solid, strong and be able to withstand years of wear and tear. It is therefore essential that the fabrics used are of high quality and durable. The fabric should also not shrink or pull after washing.
  • Easy to clean: Nobody wants to carry a dirty iPad bag around, so the one you choose should be easy to clean. While a lot of bags can be thrown into the washing machine, those with pleather, leather and synthetic covers can often just be wiped down to look as good as new.
  • Workmanship: The bag should be durable and stand up against the wear and tear of time, usage and cleaning, and there are various indicators that can help to evaluate the quality of the workmanship of the bag. Look at the interior and exterior stitching – this should be done with strong thread and should appear strong and supportive. The quality of fasteners and zips should also be evaluated – nobody wants to deal with a broken or split zipper later along the line!
