Compared to other varieties of tablet cases, tablet bags identify their distinguishing features in form and functionality. While other carriers may always fit your tablet/iPad precisely and sleekly, tablet bags include some kind of handle or strap: In short, these carriers are designed to be portable like another piece of luggage but are designed specifically around holding a tablet.
In seeking out a the best tablet bag, one will want to have an eye on size. Bags designed for 8” and 10” models are most common, and the outward appearance can be extremely variable; see the illustration directly below for some idea of the different looks and features a tablet bag may sport. Materials may also vary in tablet case bags, with leather typically at the upper end of the price range, but faux leather materials are often indistinguishable.
Tablet case bags will typically support some other features as well, most importantly pockets for accessories, personal belongings ... even a second tablet. When considering buying a tablet case bag, apply similar criteria to that when buying any other sort of baggage: Appearance is important, but that extra space (for tablet use, say for USB drives or other accessories) will also be found to be crucial for use.
