Find Your iPad Pro 12.9 Bag: Messenger Bag, Backpack or Sling
Many potential customers come to MacCase to find their perfect iPad Pro 12.9 bag. Here at MacCase, our Premium Leather models get a lot of attention and rightly so. In many cases though, someones prefect iPad Pro bag is not leather, but nylon.
Nylon iPad Pro 12.9 bags are lighter and more cost effective than their leather brethren. MacCase has made iPad Pro bags since the Apple's largest 12.9 and then 9.7 tablets were released. Let's take a quick look at the options MacCase currently offers in an iPad Pro carry bag.
iPad Pro Messenger Bag
The MacCase iPad Pro Messenger Bag can be used with either the 12.9 or 9.7 Apple tablets. The thing that sets this 12.9 Messenger Bag apart from the plethora of tablet messenger bags available is that it comes with a sleeve custom designed for the 12.9.
The tablet goes in the sleeve, the sleeve goes in the built in pocket inside the messenger and you are good to go. This kind of 2 for the price of one approach to the design gives you options. You can use the messenger bag together with the sleeve, use is alone or use the sleeve alone or with another case. This makes the MacCase iPad Pro 12.9 Messenger Bag one of the best values you will find in Apple tablet protection.
Rikki wrote in a review for this model:
"I was looking for something to protect my new toy and came across MacCase. I have to say I LOVE this sleeve! It fits perfectly and they considered the Pencil in the design. I'm highly impressed with it. The messenger bag is very, very well made. I will not be worried about anything I have inside of it. I will not hesitate to order from MacCase again for my Apple needs. They are worth every penny! The best iPad Pro Messenger Bag out there!"
iPad Pro Backpack
Like it's cousin, the Messenger Bag above, the MacCase iPad Pro Backpack sets itself apart from the heard by including a custom designed sleeve specifically for the 12.9 iPad Pro.
Like the shoulder bag, the tablet goes in the sleeve, the sleeve goes in the built in pocket inside the backpack and you are good to go. This kind of 2 for the price of 1 approach to the design gives you options. You can use the backpack together with the sleeve, use is alone or use the sleeve alone or with another case. This makes the MacCase Backpack for iPad Pro 12.9 also one of the best values you will find in Apple tablet protection.
One thing that is often overlooked in backpack design is theft deterrence. If you're carrying a very expensive piece of hardware in your backpack, in this case Apple's largest tablet, and the backpack's design telegraphs this to the world, congratulations you're now a potential target.
The iPad Pro 12.9 Backpack is designed not to look like your carrying an expensive computer device inside. It's just too round. Laptop and tablet backpacks tend to be boxy and very rectangular. This is the tip off that something expensive is inside. Our little round, organic shape is the further thing visually from what a thief would be looking for. This design keeps you and your iPad safer especially when traveling.
The Best iPad Pro Bag: A New iPad Pro Sling Bag?
For many years MacCase made a highly successful Sling model in three different colors. This was one of the most unique, original designs in MacCase history. If you are a long time customer, you may remember it. You may have even owned and used one. It's been many years since the Sling went out of production but even after all this time, there is still nothing on the market that looks quite like it.
Besides being very lightweight, it was always very comfortable and easy to use. But functionality aside, it was a radical design. With it's "ear" that stuck out above what appears to the the main body of the case combined with a slash of contrasting color that actually serves to keep moisture of out the zipper, the case turned heads where ever it went.
We recently found one in pristine perfect condition in an old box of samples. "That would make the best bag for an iPad Pro 12.9", someone reacted upon seeing it for the first time at a meeting. "It's just perfect".
Our original Sling design was ten years ahead of it's time. When it came out, it was one of the lightest and thinnest bags available from any bag manufacturer. It predicted exactly how the hardware it was designed to carry would become lighter and thinner as well. Here we are ten years later and it is perfect for the 12.9 and 9.7 Pros as well as the new iPad 9.7. It would also fit the latest 13" MacBook Pro Touch Bar model perfectly.
What do you think? Should we resurrect our Sling design and create one cool bag for IPad Pro 12.9 and 9.7? Let us know in the comments.
So whether your idea of the ultimate iPad Pro bag takes the shape of a messenger bag, backpack or an updated, resurrected Sling, MacCase has you covered. With nylon models for Apples largest tablet starting at $29.95, they won't break the bank either.
