Help with choosing a laptop bag

There are many types of bags to transport your laptop safely. A laptop bag doesn't always have to be a heavy shoulder bag. You can also choose a functional laptop sleeve, a stylish leather laptop bag, or a laptop backpack. We'll list all three for you. Keep the size of your laptop in mind when you choose a laptop bag.

Leather laptop bags

A leather laptop bag is a shoulder bag with a special compartment to transport your laptop.

Pros of a leather laptop bag:

  • The shoulder bag will protect your laptop from scratches and dust.
  • Thanks to the high-quality leather, the bag has a long lifespan.
  • You can easily take your stuff out of a shoulder bag.

Cons of a leather laptop bag:

  • A shoulder bag has less space for accessories than a backpack.
  • A shoulder bag is less suitable when you have to walk or bike a lot, or if you have to carry a large amount of weight. You can't distribute it over both shoulders.
