    welcome to the forum!

    the ipad 2's dimensions are 7.31" x 9.5" x 0.34"

    the xoom's dimensions are 6.6" x 9.81" x 0.5"

    i can see if i can make something to test with and let you know. darcy, what do you think? will the extra 0.31" of length fit in the breve?

    thanks!
    Thanks Maverick. I test new devices for a large company and I am always being asked what cases to recommend for company devices.

    First time poster, I love the look of the breve! Just curious if there's any chance of it being released in cork? I'm a cork fiend! I have 2 mini and one medium organizers in cork and a wallet in cork. A cork breve would be gorgeous! Kiwi is very nice as well.

    Tom has updated the design of the Breve (already!) to have new shoulder strap attachment points that will accept any of our shoulder straps that have snaphooks, including the Absolute (as seen in maverick's Breve video.) We think, though, most people will be happy with the included shoulder strap.

    We've also updated the product photos of the Breve to show the new version.

    Darcy,

    I really like the design of the Breve, but I'd like to know if there are options for connecting to the side rings with other straps? OK, I know that the iPad is really light, and the Breve is an even more minimalist design than the Ristretto for iPad and the Co-Pilot. But, especially if you are planning to make versions for the 11" and 13" MacBook Air, will there be different startp options? I ended up using the Absolute Strap with both the Ristretto for iPad and the Co-Pilot. The o-rings on the Breve look as though they're too small to accommodate this strap, or other customized straps. I've always ended up getting custom straps, except in cases where they weren't available, such as the original release of the Imago. (For later versions, I use the Q-AM Shoulder Strap.) So will there be other strap options? This is the main reason that I use the Ristrettos instead of the Cafe Bags -- except for the Large Cafe bag currently you can only get the standard shoulder strap. The Ultrasuede Shoulder Strap Wrap just isn't a good enough alternative IMHO if you're carrying more in your bag.

    The dimensions are:
    13" x 10" / 330 x 255mm

    Weight: 10oz or 285gr

    How tight is the iPad compartment? Will I be able to fit an iPad with case in there?
    Good question! Tom designed the Breve so that it will fit the iPad with or without a case on it.

    Thats what I mean. If you need a proper computer, buy a MacBookAir 11", if you want a tablet, buy an iPad.

    The iPad is wipe clean glass with no cracks and crevices that can be disinfected with an antiseptic wipe; whereas the key pad is plastic and aluminium with gaps and odd shaped surfaces that cannot be cleaned properly, let alone 'decontaminated'.
