These days, our laptops and phones rattle around in our bags like a set of loose keys. The reverence we once had for our pricey electronics seems to be long gone — now we treat them as if they were the ones responsible for our ever-growing e-mail count. (Who even remembers laptop sleeves anymore?) Maybe it’s time we start considering this crucial three-to-seven pound commute companion with a little more care, starting with purchasing a laptop friendly bag.
Most handbag brands know we’ve evolved from the era of running out the door with a wallet and keys to requiring a carryall with space for all of our technology, a pair of post-work gym sneakers, and a bottle of dry shampoo. While most leather — and even some canvas — tote bags could do the trick, we've sourced out bags that go the extra mile. Some double up as a shoulder bag or backpack with padded laptop compartments and some are just perfectly-sized bags that render your hardware inconspicuous to the outside eye. Just because we're schlepping doesn't mean we need everyone to know just what we’re schlepping. Click through for the bags that will give your laptops a little more TLC.
