I am apparently not proud, and five months of badgering finally convinced Myron Glaser of Glaser Designs to loan me one of his Flaptop Bags to get the bag with handle that I wanted (see A Lot of Work for a Handle from last May) since there appeared to be no other way that I was going to get a handle for my Glaser iPad bag any time soon.
There are several very nice things about this bag other than the handle, which lets me carry it without wrecking the shoulders of my jackets. One is the distressed finish, the result of a proprietary process that Myron has been working on for a couple of years which involves beating on a hide for a couple of days and doubles the price of a standard piece. Another is the size, which means that there is no residual man bag quality to the new one. And those same small briefcase-like proportions are just enough larger than the handle-less iPad bag (see A Project Completed) to hold my Canon so I don't have to lug a separate camera bag. Which I found myself doing most of the time.
But the handle is the best thing, really.
