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.
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.
