Another idea: is there anything on the outside of a Cache for iPad where one could tie a colored ribbon for an identifier?
I used a Brain Cell for my MacBook Pro (before it died a little over a year ago), so I've never used a Cache.
The iPad Mini also fits in the Medium Padded Pouch.
I lent the same Padded Pouch to my husband to carry his Nexus 7 which has no cover of any kind, he liked it and I ordered an extra one for him. It has been in use for at least a year, if not two, the Padded Pouch and the Nexus 7 look new.
This is under normal, everyday use.
I carry my iPad mini a Cache for netbook because, I added a Zagg Keyboard for a trip.
I also have a Cache ancestor for an earlier Mac.
The Medium Padded Pouch, the iPad mini Cache or an Air Cache/netbook Cache if you have an add on Keyboard are the best protection you can find for your electronic.
Unlike other cases, it doesn't scream: "look I have expensive electronic in there"
Are TB's "Nook Pouches" too small for the iPad Mini? Look like they might be but I wanted to make sure.
UPDATE: Beau from Tom Bihn replied to my query via e-mail:
Yeah, it looks like it should fit. The iPad Mini can also fit into a Padded Organizer Pouch in the Medium and SuperDrive sizes.

In ScottE22's video on his packing of the Synapse 25, at 1:45 into the presentation Scott mentions some items he keeps in his Tom Bihn Snake Charmer utility pouch. He mentions network cables, an HDMI cable, and some kind of adaptor that allows him to plug an AppleTV device into a digital projector. It sounds like he says "Connex" or "Kinnex" or "Connects", but I cannot be sure. As I am considering the purchase of an iPad Mini for facilitating ultra-portable presentations on-the-road, I was very intrigued by this. Does anyone know what adaptor Scott is referring to, and where I can price/purchase one? I may private-message Scott directly if nobody else knows. This prospect really intrigues me, as I have been thinking seriously about assembling a mobile presentation connectivity kit for this purpose.
It's a Kanex adapter. Apple TVs only have an HDMI port, and some projectors only have a VGA port, so the adapter is basically HDMI to VGA.

but I think this is based on the Accessory Product pages' quoting the outer dimensions of these pouches, which also do not assume a thickness for the device you want to place inside. Please take a look at the photo of the iPad Mini compared to the Medium Padded Organizer Pouch and the Padded USB SuperDrive pouch in this post answering @UK-Limey's question about a pouch that could fit his iPad Mini, Logitech keyboard, and folded headset. I certainly wouldn't try to fit a 7.87" × 5.3" × 0.28" (200 × 134.7 × 7.2 mm) iPad Mini (Apple's dimensions) into a pouch designed for a 5.47" × 5.47" × 0.67" (139 × 139 × 17 mm) USB SuperDrive (also Apple's dimensions, and consistent with the dimensions of my padded SuperDrive Pouch). I think the larger NOOK Color™ or Tablet™ Pouch (only available in Ultrasuede, not padded version: 6.7" x 9.8" / 170 x 250 mm) might work for this, as being slightly smaller than the Medium Size Organizer Pouch, but you're probably better off consider the iPad Mini Cache, one of the 7" Tablet Caches, or the Medium Size Padded Organizer Pouch if you want a larger option.Yeah, it looks like it should fit. The iPad Mini can also fit into a Padded Organizer Pouch in the Medium and SuperDrive sizes.
So, if I understand this correctly, you can plug the AppleTV into an HDTV and play slideshows wirelessly from your iPad, through the AppleTV, to an HDTV. Is this correct?
And, with the Kanex adaptor, you can connect an AppleTV to and ordinary digital projector's VGA port, allowing for your your iPad to wirelessly play slideshows to to a projector.
Am I getting this right?
Yes, that's exactly it.
