Map bags are available from most Army surplus stores and fit the iPad snugly. Most map bags are made from cotton canvas that will protect your iPad. I ordered a bag from one such store for $10 – it’s very affordable and versatile. I often find myself stuffing small books, a hard drive, loose papers in this bag along side my iPad (protected with a case of course) and have room to spare. These bags also look stylish and while not originally made with the iPad in mind, fit them perfectly along with a small amount of mobile gear.
Sites like Command Post and GalaxyArmyNavy are one of the military surplus outlets selling map bags. These bags can go toe-to-toe with other slings and bags that typically sell for $40-$60.
If you’re looking to tote your iPad around in style or want to give an iPad lover something on a budget, a military map bag is perfect. They’re affordable (about $10-$15 depending on where you shop) and they’re versatile.
