Evecase’s tablet bag is simple in design yet extremely effective at protecting your electronics.

The bag is made of a stretchy foam called neoprene. Neoprene is known for its elasticity and soft texture. The material works well for a tablet bag because it stretches to fit bulky items yet retains its shape enough to not rip or tear with extended use.

The bag is also water-resistant, so light rain or a spill won’t destroy your devices.

Evecase’s bag keeps it simple with two pockets: one front pocket and one fully-padded main pocket. This bag is ideal for travelers who like to pack light!

Key Features

  • Fits tablets up to 10.1” long
  • Wide mouth opening

Tablet bags all have their own unique features and details. Some bags are all about function, storage, and being as efficient as possible. Other bags look cute on the outside and store everything you need on the inside.

Each tablet bag is different, but the following factors should be considered, regardless of which bag type you’re leaning toward.

Carrying Mechanism

Tablets are more lightweight than laptops, but they still have some weight to them. That’s why carrying mechanisms are an important factor to consider before buying your tablet bag.

Most likely, the best carrying option is an adjustable shoulder strap. This type of carrying device allows you to carry your tablet bag on your shoulder or wear it as a crossbody bag. If you’re purchasing a tablet bag with a shoulder strap, make sure you can adjust the length of the strap to fit comfortably on your body. Also, it’s in your best interest to have the option to unclip the straps and store them away until you’re ready to use them again.

Carrying handles are another popular option. While useful in some circumstances, carrying handles can be a hassle, especially if you’re juggling other items like your purse or luggage. That said, cases with carrying handles alone tend to be less expensive than crossbody bags or options with adjustable shoulder straps.

Protection

Some tablet bags, while impressive-looking, don’t have the padding required to fully protect your electronics.

Make sure to read up on the padding of the bag you’re buying. Ideally, the bag will have some sort of padding strategically placed to surround the tablet. For some models, that means there’s a padded pocket specifically designed to carry the tablet.

Of course, the best tablet bags are padded all the way around!
