iPads have dozens of travel uses, from a camera to e-reader to GPS. But as important as using your iPad is keeping it safe. Just like with iPhones, there are dozens of covers to suit every traveler’s personality. I’ve broken it down into cases for every type of traveler, so here are Her Packing List’s Top 10 Cute iPad Carrying Cases.

For the Fashionista

In true fashionista style, it’s all about the labels. Nearly every designer has their own line of electronics accessories. iPad cases can look more like purses, like this Kate Spade cross-body bag.

I Recommend:

  • Kate Spade Cross Body Bag: This bag looks like a purse and can match with other accessories, like iPhone cases and wallets.

  • Aldo Hintson Tech Bag: If you’re not on a designer budget, you can still find adorable iPad cases that keep you looking chic.

For the Flashpacker

Digital nomads need to get the most out of their electronics while on the road. A sturdy case that can also function as a keyboard makes it easier to keep up.

I Recommend:

  • Clam Case: This case charges separately from the iPad, but turns your iPad into a laptop computer with a full keyboard. It’s durable and bends backwards to be used as a stand.

For the Outdoorsy Types

If you’re into outdoor sports, like hiking or scuba diving, there’s the risk of your electronics taking a beating. Outdoorsy travelers need strong, sturdy cases for their iPads, preferably with waterproof or shockproof qualities.

I Recommend:

  • Otterbox Defender: Their iPhone cases are the most durable on the market, so it’s no surprise that they would have an equally strong iPad case.

For the Green Traveler

If being eco-friendly and environmentally conscious is important to you as a traveler, there are products that will suit your needs.

I Recommend:

  • iPad World Map Print Padded Case: This Etsy store uses organic fabrics and other natural and sustainable materials. It looks adorable and has an extra pocket for your extra items.
