OAK­LEY LUNCH­BOX BACK­PACK

This 30-litre back­pack is part tech bag and part lunch box, of­fer­ing the un­usual com­bi­na­tion of a padded sec­tion able to fit up to a 17-inch lap­top and a cooler sec­tion at the front. Ideal for some but a niche prod­uct.

$350 / oak­ley.com.au

HEDGREN FRAME­WORK

The bag has a pocket for a bat­tery pack and ca­ble hold­ers that lets you con­nect the charger to gad­gets in the other parts of the bag. It fits a 15-inch lap­top and tablet, and has the added pro­tec­tion of a RFID shield.

ARC’TERYX BLADE 28

EVERKI CONTEMPRO

This fash­ion­able bag has a wide top open­ing and a padded sec­tion able to fit a 15.6-inch lap­top and tablet. Un­like some tech back­packs, it still has the es­sen­tials such as a side pocket for a wa­ter bot­tle.
