The Gadgeteer

The Booq Taipan Spacesuit XS should work well to protect your iPad inside your laptop bag or gear bag. I’m not sure it’s padded enough to protect against really hard knocks or big drops, but it should protect the iPad from getting scratched by keys, pens, or the like while in your bigger gearbag.

The Gadgeteer

Overall, I really like this bag. It is nicely made, designed, and sized. The quality and color are classic booq. Its checkpoint-friendly design make trips thru airport security a little less hectic. Funny thing is, my wife has dibs on the Taipan Lift and the Gadgeteer Kid on the Boa Flow backpack.
