Tote Your Technology in Style

Whether used for work, personal projects or just for entertainment, it seems we carry our laptops with us more often than not. And no matter how thin the notebook, we’re always on the search for something slimmer and lighter that takes up the least space possible. Laptop envelopes are great for travel near and far, and there are some seriously sleek styles on the market right now. But there is something to be said about eliminating the bulk of even the thinnest sleeve. We found five tech bags that not only have a padded compartment for your laptop with room to spare for the rest of your essentials, they are incredibly stylish as well.

Crumpler x Apple
Australian bag company Crumpler has partnered with Apple for an exclusive line of MacBook bags that have a sporty look about them. The Cut of Horror Backpack not only holds your 15-inch MacBook Pro, there is a separate padded pocket for an iPad. Water-resistant, your gear will be protected from the elements.

J. Panther Luggage Co.
It doesn’t get more handsome than The Courier Ruc Case, constructed from black grain leather with smooth leather trim. The perfect work portfolio, stash your laptop, iPad, books, keys and phone. Wear it as a cross-body or backpack depending on your mood and look you want.

Topo Designs
Perfect if you ride public transportation or travel often, the slim design of the Sling Bag won’t constantly be bumping into people in close quarters. The inner sleeve for an iPad or small laptop is entirely lined. Wear it messenger style or just slung over one shoulder.

Wheelman & Co.
Available in different sizes for varying tech storage needs, the E. Homes Laptop Case also has a special compartment for your charger. We love the roll-top design in rustic brown leather.

Herschel Supply Co.
A tried and true favorite bag brand, we could never get enough of Herschel. And the Heritage Plus backpack has everything we love and more with fully padded, fleece-lined laptop and iPad compartments plus a mesh organizer, perfect for stashing easy-to-reach essentials. Leather details give a classic shape a grown-up feel.

This highly-rated Under Armour unisex athletic backpack is $14 off for Prime Day
Under Armour Hustle 5 unisex backpack Prime Day deal

Backpacks can be hit or miss. Some of them are super durable, but whether or not they'll fit all the gear you need is up in the air. The best backpacks are pricier, which makes sense. You tend to get what you pay for. If you're in the market for a solid backpack, Under Armour is offering an excellent discount on the Unisex Hustle 5.0 Backpack for Prime Day this year. Usually $55, you can get the pack for $41, saving you $14, and there are a ton of color options available. You should know, however, that this is a limited-time deal, and we have no idea how long it will stick around. We recommend shopping now if you're interested so you don't miss out.

 
Here's why you should consider getting the Under Armour Hustle 5.0 Backpack now
Prime Day officially starts July 16 and runs through July 17, so understandably, most people are probably waiting until the official event to do their shopping. If that's you, we get it. However, in recent years, the deals available on Prime Day haven't been much better than the early stuff floating around. Also, a variety of retailers are now involved, so it often pays to look outside of Amazon for deals. In this case, the Under Armour Hustle is available as part of a limited-time deal, and there's no countdown, so we don't know when it will end. It could be gone before you know it or even sell out.
