iSkin has released an over the shoulder sling bag in The Gravity Collection for you to carry the iPad with Retina, or any iPad model, effortlessly.

The iPad bag is heavily padded and has heavy-duty shoulder strap, D-Ring and additional pouches for iPad accessories and a smartphone. iSkin Agent 6 Sling for iPad comes in black.
The super padded iSkin Agent 6 Sling for iPad is made with sturdy yet lightweight ballistic nylon. Military field pack's webbing design inspired the designer of the Agent 6 Sling, as you'll find the similar webbed strips on this iPad bag. The wide and sturdy strips aren't just there for decoration- they function as holders for extra packs, pouches, or other add-on accessories. In fact, the iSkin Agent 6 Sling for iPad comes with a 5.50" x 6.50" detachable or attachable pouch that's big enough to store your smartphone, charging cable and other accessories you might carry and it's strapped to the webbing via Velcro. The interior of the iSkin Agent 6 Sling for iPad is lined with moisture-resistant down proof nylon. Both sides of the bag that holds the iPad in have thick padding and the bag should protect your iPad even if things bump into it when you walk about in a crowded city or on a train or bus. The front detachable pocket doesn't have padding though.
The fairly water resistant material on the iSkin Agent 6 Sling for iPad allows you to carry the iPad even in light rain and the moisture seal zipper helps keep water drops from seeping into the bag through the zipper. The iSkin Agent 6 Sling for iPad is very easy to carry thanks to its thickly padded, heavy-duty shoulder strap. The shoulder strap connects to the iPad bag diagonally; at the top the strap is sewn into the bag and at the bottom it's connected via a heavy-duty D-Ring hook. The shoulder strap's padding is thick, almost seems to have designed for something heavier than the iPad, but the angle of the strap and the thick padding make the tablet feel light on your shoulder. The shoulder strap is also quite wide and is also lined with webbing so that you can Velcro more items to the shoulder strap. The bag comes with a small pouch that's big enough to carry the iPad's AC adapter, USB drives and other small sized items. Unlike the large detachable pouch in the front, this small pouch has padding. There's also a stretchable pocket on the strap that you can store your iPhone in. The zippers on these extra pouches have moisture seal as well. The length on the shoulder strap is adjustable. The bottom D-Ring not only looks cool, it's also thick and sturdy. It connects to the shoulder strap with a smaller ring that can rotate 360 degrees so that your shoulder strap will never get tangled up.
The in The Gravity Collection for iPad is designed to hold an iPad in any generation or anything tablet that's similar in size or smaller. We've also tried several Android 10" tablets including the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10, the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 and more, none fit in the Agent 6 Sling. The wide aspect ratio demands talker dimension. So this is indeed an iPad bag!
If you carry your iPad to work everyday and need something to protect the tablet while freeing your hands for other things, the iSkin Agent 6 Sling bag is an excellent choice with a metro and chic style that's very protective and functional as a carrying case. The webbed exterior makes the bag stand out instantly and makes it easy for you to attach additional pouches as needed.
