So what's the deal with a dedicated Kindle bag?

    Yes..."TB Sleeves for Amazon Kindle 2" = "Medium Padded Organizer Pouch". That is the solution I am currently going with.

    Thanks,

    Small Cafe Bag

    I purchased the small cafe bag for my wife to carry her Kindle(enclosed in the Amazon leather cover). Fits with a little extra room for other things, such as charger and light.
    In my opinion, the perfect Kindle bag.

    I have to say I agree with this sentiment. The Kindle travels pretty well in most any bag and really does not require a dedicated sack. A cache for the Kindle would be a nice, cost effective way to offer protection for the device. (Of course one could simply use a cache for ipad or netbook for the Kindle - they would work but the fit would likely not be optimal for the latest version of the device.)

    It's unlikely a bag for the Kindle similar to the Ristretto for iPad would be much or any less expensive than that bag.

    MaggieScratch- scheduled to be delivered tomorrow. Thanks for the push. :-)

    Darcy- that is unfortunate. In the interim I am going to use a Medium Padded Organizer Pouch from an earlier order and transfer its contents to a Medium Clear Organizer Pouch which wasn't seeing much action. -- And...regarding your suggestion...the Ristretto for iPad is nearly the price of a Kindle!

    Not anytime soon -- sorry! Tom's design list is so long right now that I don't have any idea when we'd see a dedicated Kindle bag. The Ristretto for iPad, while not a perfect fit for the Kindle 3, does fit it pretty well.

    Piece of advice: don't wait. You will kick yourself when you see how much you enjoy your reader.

    So what's the deal with a dedicated Kindle bag?

    I am about to pull the trigger on a Kindle 3 and saw reference to the note regarding bags specific for the Kindle to debut late this year. As it is now "late this year", what timing/options can we expect? If Tom is bringing such a product to market soon I might wait and hold off purchasing a different carrying case until his is available.

    Thanks,
