Am thinking of getting the STM jacket. I currently own the Belkin vie grip. Awesome case very solid. Now just want something to keep it in when not in use.

Does anybody have both? How snug is the fit?

Does the iPad fit into the STM jacket with the belkin vue on?

The Jacket can accommodate cases. I've seen iPads with the Apple iPad Case and a Speck CandyShell fit in the Jacket fine, so you shouldn't have any problem with the Grip Vue.

Thanks for the reply. I'll see if I can track one down. They seem to be out of stock in most places..

Try WOW Sight and Sound, or a NextByte near you!

This is a fantastic case, you will love it. Works as both a thin sleeve to put in a bigger bag, or independently as a standalone bag.

Note that there are two versions of the STM Jacket iPad case, in particular with regard to the shoulder strap, see my post here:

Style I got from NextByte 1 month ago: ?OLD

I can confirm I have my iPad in a silicone case and it fits in the STM jacket perfectly fine :)

I have both and the iPad with the Belkin grip will fit snugly inside the Jacket. In regard to an above post, there are not two versions of the jacket; the shoulder strap comes with the Jacket and you can either use it or easily remove.

Got it! Extremely well made. Nicely padded. Very happy.

The shoulder strap does have different loops as per the pictures above. The metal hoop attaching the strap to the bag is now attached to the strap.

Highly recommend this case for any others looking for a cool streamlined case.

P.s got this at next byte at balmain. He had plenty of stock.

Just an update, there is now a NEW type of STM bag called the STM Slim Extra Small, up to 11"....

STM Bags > Laptop Bags (http://www.stmbags.com/catalog/ipad-bags/slim-extra-small-laptop-shoulder-bag/)

Apparently it is the successor to the STM Brink (whatever that was) and fits an iPad great, plus a bit more roomy than the Jacket, apparently better than the STM Jacket.
