Think Tank My 2nd Brain Tablet Case Review

by Reads (4,162)

Tablets make great travel companions because they are so small and light. You shouldn’t ruin that by carrying yours in a bag intended for a laptop.

The My 2nd Brain Tablet Case from Think Tank has been carefully designed to provide users with a way to carry both their mobile computer and the accessories that go with it in an organized fashion.

Build & Design

This bag is the right size for devices with screens around 10 inches. A 9.7-inch iPad fits in it easily, while a 10.6-inch Galaxy Tab just barely fits. Think Tank also offers versions for those who have 11-inch and 13-inch devices.

Think Tank My 2nd Brain Tablet CaseIf, like me, you travel frequently and depend on your tablet day and night, you end up with quite a collection of gear: chargers and cables, an external keyboard, a wireless media drive, mobile access point, and more. The My 2nd Brain Tablet Case has pockets — and more pockets inside of those pockets — for all of these items so you can keep them organized.

It starts out with the main pocket where you put your tablet. This doubles as a place to store your external keyboard when you are using your tablet but don’t need to type anything. This has a zipper so there’s no chance of these falling out.

Next to that is a large zippered pocket with four inner compartments. Two of these were designed to hold cables and chargers. The other two have zippers of their own — perfect for small, valuable items like memory cards and thumbdrives.

The My 2nd Brain Tablet Case has a small zippered pocket along the top that Think Tank designed to hold a phone. I prefer too keep my phone on me, so I put my mobile access point in there instead.

On the front of this case is smaller zippered pocket that actually has a space for an iPad mini or a 7-inch device, in case you’re the type who carries around two tablets. This pocket also includes a separate area with slots for holding pens, a stylus, and other small items.

On the back is a fairly large slot for holding flat items. It’s not quite big enough to hold a magazine without folding it in half.

Those who would like a similar bag with fewer pockets might be interested in the STM Linear.

The My 2nd Brain Tablet Case can be carried either by a handle on its top or with the included shoulder strap. The strap is adjustable and has a pad so it doesn’t cut into your shoulder.

It seems well made — after several weeks of use, our test model it still looks brand new.


If a tablet is the centerpiece of your mobile office, you need a bag like the Think Geek My 2nd Brain Tablet Case. It has enough room for all the gear you need without being larger than necessary.

This accessory retails for $75, a resonable amount to pay for a well-designed and well-built bag like this one.
