Default Xoom sling bags.

I'm interested in purchasing a sling bag for my Xoom, does anyone know of some affordable, sporty style bags?

I'd just be interested in knowing what a sling bag is - what is a sling bag?

Very similar to a messenger bag, just not as big.

I bought this last week: Case Logic 9 Sport In-Car DVD Player Case > DVD Organization > Case Logic.

The Xoom fits in there nicely with the Moto folio case on and there is room for the charger, mouse and more. I also picked up the BT keyboard for 1/2 price from Motorola's website. Motorola has all the Xoom accessories for 1/2 off now on their website: Motorola Mobility, Inc. : Accessories : For MOTOROLA XOOM.

In fact, on checking your link I see that it's 50% off the keyboard plus a free mouse! That's $40 for the BT keyboard and mouse together, which looks pretty good value.

[Edit]

Annoyingly, this offer is US only. The Moto UK site is charging 59.99 just for the keyboard so it's either about 26 for both in US or 60 just for the keyboard in UK - what a scam. I shall have to ask one of my colleagues in US to forward it to me.

That stinks. I didn't realize it was US only. I did get the mouse for free with it but I've been so busy I haven't opened either one. They also have a deal where if you buy the standard dock you get a free black gel skin. I was going to buy it until I realized the dock doesn't have a USB port on it so when the tablet is docked the USB port is basically blocked and even the more expensive speaker dock only has the mini HDMI but still no USB port. I don't know what they were thinking when they designed those. The

I bought one of the standard docks on eBay but I foolishly didn't check what ports it had. After all, it's a dock so it must at least have a USB port. Sadly, that turned out to be wrong and, as you say, it doesn't have HDMI. What a crock.

It's nicely made and the Xoom fits into it well but in reality it's no more than a stand. 25 for a stand is a complete rip off and I would have kept my money in my pocket if I had realised :-(.
