Shoulder Holster vs. Drop Leg Bag: Choosing the Right iPad Carrying Cases

When you need to carry an iPad but also need to remain hands-free, you have two great options for iPad carrying cases: the shoulder holster and the drop leg bag. But which one is right for you? Taking time to learn more about these two options can help you choose a case that you’ll love to use for years to come.

Should You Choose a Shoulder Holster or Drop Leg Bag?

Reasons to Love the Shoulder Holster

The tablet shoulder holster is a very convenient method for transporting your iPad or another digital device. It sits under your left arm, giving you quick access to the device when needed. The holster also includes extra pockets that hold your smartphone as well as a pocket for cash or a credit card. This means you can load up your shoulder holster without worrying about filling up your pants pockets, too. It’s a very versatile case that is great for travel, too. Other reasons you’ll love this carrying option include:

  • Lightweight material won’t weigh you down
  • Built-in storage for your headphones
  • Easy to adjust to your body
  • Velcro flap allows easy access to your device while keeping it secure
  • Lifetime guarantee on materials and craftsmanship

Why You Might Prefer a Drop Leg Bag

The drop leg bag is a stylish hands-free option. You’ll find drop leg options both for the iPad mini carrying cases as well as a full-size iPad carrying case. The drop leg design of these cases means the iPad or other digital device stays completely out of your way. You’ll be able to work with your hands without bumping into your tablet. This case, along with the shoulder holster, offers zippered pockets for storage of extra items. Other reasons to love the drop-leg bag:

  • Available in high-quality leather materials for extra durability and style
  • Can wear it as a shoulder bag as well as around the waist
  • Spacious storage for more than just your tablet
  • Leg strap holds the device securely to your body
  • Great options for iPad mini as well as full-size iPads

Questions to Help You Decide

What activities will you perform while wearing your device?

Think about what you’ll be doing while wearing your iPad. If you are going to be doing a lot of walking, you may find the shoulder bag is more comfortable. If you need to be up on a lot of ladders or using your hands a great deal, then the drop leg bag may keep your device in a more convenient position. Think through your tasks and make sure the iPad carrying case won’t be in your way.

Do you want to use your iPad carrying case for travel?

Both cases are ideal for travel as they can help you eliminate the need for extra baggage (which can mean extra money out of your pocket!). Many travelers prefer the shoulder bag, as it’s more convenient to take on and off for airplane security checkpoints.

Do you suffer from any aches or pains?

If you struggle with aches and pains at the end of the day, the right iPad carrying case could help. If you suffer from back pain, moving your iPad and other digital devices from your shoulder to a drop leg back may help with your back pain symptoms. However, you may find the shoulder bag offers enough support that you can wear it comfortably without any sore spots at the end of the day.
