Looking for a stylish bag to house your laptop that's both practical and professional? We've rounded up four of the best laptop bags, that come with a lot more besides.
As well as having a purpose-built pocket to protect your laptop or tablet, you should also be looking for a bag that's comfortable to carry, designed to support the weight of what you'll throw inside it, has space for all your other essential knick-knacks and naturally, looks smart and stylish. Here are four of the best laptop bags that tick those boxes.
1) The Chelsea daypack (£80)
It’s neat, streamlined and designed to be just big enough to house those daily commuter essentials (with a capacity of 12 litres), without being so big you’ll arrive at your meeting with noticeable “luggage”. Fitting a laptop with a 13 inch screen in a purpose built, luxury lined zipped pocket at the back, it’s the ideal backpack to look smart in the city.
Made of water-resistant nylon, this daypack is finished with premium leather details on the handle and zip pullers, and has comfortable, premium, padded shoulder straps, with the backpack designed to fit perfectly into the small of your back. It's also got a back strap so that it slots neatly over a suitcase handle when you're heading to the airport and want easier access to your travel essentials.
2) The Stirling laptop bag (£110)
Forget everything you think you know about a classic black laptop bag because this one is turbo-charged. A nifty number that does exactly what it says on the tin, our Stirling laptop bag is designed to house a laptop with a screen of up to 15 inches. Inside, the interior is neatly divided into two sections, so there's space to slot in notebooks or files alongside your laptop.
With premium leather carry handles and a detachable shoulder strap, it’s also got a back strap to slot over a business suitcase handle - you won’t be short of ways to carry this handsome holdall. You'll find a home for all your bits and pieces - keys, phones, pens or power banks - in the thoughtfully placed external pockets. It's the business bag you've been looking for.
3) The Chelsea overnight bag (£120)
More than just a laptop bag, this travel lifestyle bag is perfect for a quick trip away (maybe an overnight stay... see what we did there?). It has a fully lined, luxury interior that feels super soft to the touch - trust us, it's seriously stroke-able. An inside slip pocket is specifically designed to house a laptop (of up to 15 inches), that fastens with a secure leather strap.
With a further two slip pockets and another pocket for a tablet or iPad, you'll find a place for everything. Designed to sit on top of our Clifton hard sided suitcases by slotting over the suitcase handle thanks to a discreet back sleeve (that also doubles up as an extra pocket for your passport), this travel bag acts as the perfect piece of hand luggage. With twin leather carry handles and a removable shoulder strap, it's a seriously practical piece of kit.
4) The Stirling backpack (£90)
Stop your search - this is ultimate business backpack. If you’re looking for a classic business bag with a pocket for everything, this is it. Designed to be the chicest and sleekest backpack on the commuter train, this backpack and laptop bag seriously looks the part. It features adjustable, padded back straps that are extremely comfortable, and has an external back strap to slot over a suitcase handle.
Inside, this backpack has everything you could possibly think of, from a padded laptop and iPad pocket, to a document holder, pockets for your every day items and... there's even a key clip. Last but not least, we've designed a zipped, removable pouch that comes with this backpack to pop your chargers in and keep those cables tangle-free. This is a winner of a business bag.
