Are you looking for iPad Bags for men? Choosing an iPad bag from the huge range available can be overwhelming and to help you choose which is the best for you, or perhaps as a gift for the man in your life, here’s some things you need to consider.
While the look of the bag is probably very important, remember that unless the interior is sufficiently padded, then the bag may look good but will not offer much protection from all the bumps and scrapes that are inevitable when you are on the move. The size of the inner padded sleeve or compartment may also be important, depending on whether you have an iPad Air, Ipad Pro or any of the other tablets that are or become available.
The style is also important. If you want a bag that makes you look professional then a fabric backpack may not be ideal!
We have the following types of bags for you:

So think about where you will be taking your iPad and the impression that you want to give and here’s a selection of my fav iPad bags for men.
Have you heard the term murse?
It is an urban term now being used to describe the bags that men are finding that they need to protect devices like iPads, digital readers and laptops. Works a little like a purse only for men…a murse.
Isn’t it just a bit ridiculous that men still need their women to keep keys, ipad, ipod, wallet for them? Fortunately, with the rise of the iPad, the larger bags men do seem justified in carrying about, for work, are now supplemented with manbags as well: purses for men aka murses. The style still isn’t for everybody, but still the bags on this page are manly enough that no man should feel ashamed walking about with it.

Men have a different need than women when it comes to a bag to carry and protect their iPad. Unlike their female counterparts, men do not want something that looks like a purse or handbag. Their needs are much simpler. A bag that will offer protection to the device, possibly room to carry some accessories, not too large or bulky.
They are still a backpack but with one strap they are referred to as a sling. The strap can be used to cross the body or just “slung” over a shoulder if you wish. Here are some great examples of sling backpacks for tablets.
This bag is a bit larger than the small messenger-style bags I’ve focused on so far
Men, have you been looking for a great backpack that will also hold your iPad as you carry the needed supplies to the office or your workplace? There are several styles that have a special compartment for that very purpose. The benefit is that you will also, in most cases, have other compartments to hold things like file folders, books and other necessities that you will need for the day or evening.
Carrying a backpack with you has so many advantages. Do you plan to stop at the gym either before or after work? Take your bag along with you and you can carry a change of clothes, your iPad or other tablet and sometimes even a laptop.
