Portal Bags Let You Use Your iPad Without Removing It



It’s almost instinctive these days for me to place my iPhone or iPad facing in in whatever bag or pocket I use, to protect its screen from bumps. But the new Portal series of bags from Osprey might just make it worth breaking the habit: The bags have a pocket at the front with a flap that opens to let you use your iPad without removing it from the bag.

The backpack looks to be the least useful in the multi-style lineup, but the purse and messenger bags are a different matter. I can see myself quickly ripping open the flap to check on a map or plane schedule before dropping it all back onto my hip.

The bags also come with a non-scratch sunglasses pocket (also good for phones and other small gadgets), run from $89 to $139, and come in a variety of lame-name colors.

Available now.
