Cute Laptop Bags for Travel
Travel Fashion Girl help! A reader asks:
I am looking for a good laptop tote or bag for travel. Most work totes have thin straps that get uncomfortable after a while. I am looking for something spacious, elegant, but not too heavy or big. Any ideas?
Whether you’re traveling for work or pleasure, there are times when you may need to bring your laptop. It’s important to pack your laptop securely in a bag to avoid any damage. The best laptop bags offer a combination of style, functionality, and a compact size that is easy to tote around.
Our readers are sharing their favorite laptop bags they swear by for travel.
Knomo Berlin Backpack
This simple, slimline backpack can easily be used for business or casual travel. It features a generous amount of space and can fit a 15” laptop. It’s made out of an ultra lightweight, water-resistant fabric for an edgier look and feel.
One reader says, “I’ve had this one in black for years. It’s very comfortable and it’s worth the price.” The black is classic, but we can’t help also adoring the pretty pink hue!
Wenger/SwissGear Eva Tote
At less than $50, this Eva tote is a great option for business travel, as it’s professional looking and classic in its style. As an expandable tote, it has a removable laptop sleeve that can fit up to a 13” laptop. The shoulder strap is removable if you prefer to carry it like a traditional tote.
One reader shares, “I like this one as it has padded handles and an optional shoulder strap. The zipper around the middle is an expansion, too.”
Fjallraven Kanken Laptop Bag
Both we and our readers love the Fjallraven Kanken backpack for travel. Beyond the classic mini and regular sized versions, the brand also makes a backpack with a separate padded compartment that can fit a 15” laptop.
One reader says, “I love my Kanken for travel. There is a separate padded pocket near the back for the laptop and then a very spacious main compartment! Best of all the whole bag weighs about a pound.” Another adds, “I love the Kanken 15″ laptop bag. It’s so cute and comfy, plus it has padded shoulder straps that the regular Kanken doesn’t have.”
Clark & Mayfield Morrison Leather Laptop Handbag
For a more urban and trendy style, the Morrison handbag features metal ware, top-stitching, and leather tackle. This bag can pass as a standard handbag but can carry a 17” laptop. Along with several pockets, and an adjustable, removable shoulder strap, it has a trolley sleeve.
A reader says about this bag, “I own five Clark and Mayfield bags because they’re so great. The Morrison is my go-to laptop and tablet bag. It’s super roomy, soft sided, and has a long strap that can be worn crossbody.”
Kipling Camryn Laptop Bag
This laptop bag is so functional thanks to its numerous zipper pockets and trolley sleeve. The black makes it easy to dress up for work or dress down for casual travel. The wide straps make it extra durable to carry and it’s big enough to fit a 15” laptop in the padded, protective laptop sleeve.
One reader says, “I’m a huge fan of Kipling. I have the black one and love it. As a bonus, they’re water-resistant and easy to wash in the machine without fabric softener. It has great pockets for organization, too.”
Dagne Dover Signature Legend Tote
This is the perfect tote for those who prefer a classic style. Featuring coated canvas, it’s lightweight yet durable. Inside, it has a padded laptop compartment that can fit a 15” laptop, along with pockets sized for a wallet, phone, and other necessities. The Bleecker Blush shade is a great neutral alternative to black.
A reader shares, “I love this tote. I receive a lot of compliments on it. It travels well and fits everything. There are a lot of interior pockets for a laptop, tablet, wallet, and even a slot for sunglasses and a water bottle. This bag is definitely worth it.”
Osprey FlapJill Courier Day Pack
If you’ve been reading TFG for awhile, you know we love Osprey backpacks. This travel brand also makes a great messenger bag for laptops. While more utilitarian in appearance, it has a long list of features, including a zippered top slash pocket, a side pocket for a water bottle, and a zippered pocket for your phone or laptop cords. The internal laptop sleeve will keep your device protected.
A reader says, “I recommend having a look at the Osprey Flapjack Courier, as it checks all the boxes for a great laptop bag.”
Clark & Mayfield Sellwood Metro Laptop Handbag
This lightweight tote is a durable carry-all for those looking for a functional and sleek laptop bag. Inside it has a padded laptop section that can fit a 15” laptop along with several pockets for organizing your essentials. The outside has a large pocket, metal feet for stability, and a trolley sleeve for easy transport.
A reader raves about this bag, sharing, “one of my girlfriends bought this bag for our Italy trip and she has used it ever since on a daily basis.” This easily works as a day bag, with or without your laptop!
Lipault Plume Elegance Laptop Backpack
This is one of the most stylish laptop backpacks thanks to the leather finish and sleek lines. It’s slim and doesn’t look bulky, even when carrying a 15” laptop in the laptop sleeve. Wear on your back or stack on your luggage with its trolley sleeve.
One reader says, “this is a really cute backpack. It’s so elegant looking while still offering convenience when traveling.”
Tumi Voyageur Calais Backpack
Tumi makes one of the most popular carry-on suitcases, so it’s not surprising they make an equally popular and stylish laptop backpack. As part of the Voyageur collection, this backpack features padded shoulder straps, a 15” laptop pocket, and other interior organizer pockets for electronics and accessories, while several exterior pockets provide easy access.
One reader says, “I recommend the Tumi Calais. I have it and really enjoy using it. It doesn’t give off a hiking backpack vibe at all!”
