Top 8 Laptop Bags to Simplify your Daily Commute

Let’s face it. Life is busy, and often your hands are full. No, we mean, literally. Your hands are too full! You used to just bring one laptop charger to the office, but now your friend keeps asking to borrow yours so it would probably be best to bring two. On top of that, you’ve got your water bottle, your cellphone, your wallet, and that package you’ve been promising your boss you’ll take to the post office since last week. Things are falling out of your arms left and right, and it’s a miracle you make it to work with all of your belongings intact.

We’ve taken it upon ourselves to help make your daily commute easier with these 8 fashionable and functional bags that keep your laptop safe and sound on your way into the office without making you juggle your belongings like a circus clown. Sound good? Read on!



Traditionally, backpacks are worn with straps over both shoulders, sometimes with a strap across the waist for further control. These are your heavy duty bags, the ones to turn to when you’ve got a hefty load for the day and need some extra support.
