In My Closet: Stylish Satchel for A New Gadget

About a week ago cubes surprised me with an iPad. As you know I commute via train almost daily; most of which is spent by me staring into my iPhone as I scroll through Google Reader or HootSuite. I only do this when I'm able to secure a window seat away from the doors. While I haven't known anyone to get an iPhone or iPad taken from their hands on the train, friends have had iPhones ripped from their hands while they were riding MUNI as well as walking on the street.

So that I could travel "safely" with my iPad, I needed a bag that didn't scream, cool tech gadget inside. I now had a reason to get one of those satchels I'd been dreaming about a month ago. After some searching, I found two Coach Station Bags, also called the Slim Satchel, for under $75 for both.

When purchasing previously loved Coach bags, review a list of known fake serial numbers against the serial number in your bag. Also review tips from Bag Bliss on spotting fakes, and once you've got your bag, follow leather cleaning tips from Dress with Courage.
