Well, my quest for an Oakley Sandbag 1 is still on, but now that I am moving everything to the cloud and using my Xoom more and more, I'm looking to trim my bag weight and size.Anyone got any good suggestions on a tablet-sized leg bag / holster type deal?
After a trip to Hobby Lobby and some quality time with Singer, I've updated the bag to be worn on the hip. I found that for the Xoom this was an excellent bag, but being tall the strap was never long enough and I was constantly trying to find a way to carry it low. (Note: An iPad would certainly fit in the main compartment, but probably not in the slot I'm using for the xoom as it is taller than the Xoom by about 3/4").I changed the shoulder strap so it would be detachable, and thanks to the good people at bdu.com, who send me a belt every time I buy pants, I had some great webbing to make the detachable drop strap.I've got shows lined up for August, and my goal is to be 100% cloud-ready by then, adding this Gearhead keyboard to the tablet for typing large docs and editing spreadsheets. The keyboard fits fine in the case, though admittedly it is going to be a bit heavy for a hip bag when I add ac adapters and other "stuff", we'll see.I'm looking forward to checking my notebook with the rest of my equipment and going through the airport with only this bag.If this doesn't work as I hope, I'll probably go with one of those RedRocks like Mike has.
How well would a 10.3" netbook fit in there?

That looks good. Last request: What does it look like when being worn?
I picked up one of these in black for my Acer laptop: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=704999The computer just barely fits. It has become my Tactical Murse.
If you get another purse, will you post a picture?
