LaCie ForMoa for iPad review

The LaCie ForMoa  for iPad is a stylish handbag for carrying around an iPad. Due to its diminutive stature, the iPad has lent itself to many a "manbag" style carrying case, and the LaCie ForMoa sits firmly in this camp.

The LacIe ForMoa comes in five colours (we tested black) and has a dotted neoprene exterior. The iPad slots in the centre and a zip keeps it in place. On either side are two large pouches with velcro fasteners. Inside one of the pockets is a small zip pouch for an iPhone.

There are two carrying handles, which can be tucked inside turning it into a straightforward carry case; but no over the shoulder strap (which is partly what makes it look more girlish). In LaCie tradition a prominent designer, in this case Sam Hecht, is responsible for the design. Not that that's a bad thing. In fact, it's more practical than many of the other iPad cases we've tested, it's just not one for the boys.

OUR VERDICT

It's large, spacious, practical and well made. With good design and stylish colours. In fact, we like the LaCie ForMoa, but it's only right to acknowledge that it's style and lack of a shoulder strap make this more of a handbag than most might like
