Water­Field Mav­er­ick Leather Lap­top

Mes­sen­ger Bag ($289-$319) We wouldn't be sur­prised if this is the last lap­top bag you buy. Care­fully crafted us­ing pre­mium cross-grain leather that will de­velop a soft patina over time, this mes­sen­ger bag from Water­Field is built to last. In ad­di­tion to eas­ily fit­ting your 13-inch lap­top, this roomy bag has plenty of room for your iPad, iPhone, head­phones, and any other work gear you want to bring along.

Booq Sad­dle Pro Bag ($295) This ex­pand­able lap­top bag from Booq has room for ev­ery­thing you need, in­clud­ing your iPad, iPhone, and tech ac­ces­sories. The durable con­struc­tion and high-qual­ity ma­te­ri­als give the bag a lux­u­ri­ous feel. And in ad­di­tion to its nu­mer­ous com­part­ments and pock­ets, there is an ex­pand­able cen­ter sec­tion that al­lows you to squeeze in all of your tech, plus a change of clothes for an overnight busi­ness trip. It also has the es­sen­tial quick-ac­cess front pocket and rear loop for con­nect­ing to your trolly suit­case.

Solo Elite Back­pack ($79.99) This roomy back­pack fits a 17-inch lap­top in the padded rear com­part­ment and ev­ery­thing you'll need for work or school in the front com­part­ment. In ad­di­tion to a wide range of pock­ets that will keep your gear safe and ac­ces­si­ble, the Elite has a col­lapsi­ble com­part­ment that I've found can com­fort­ably fit work­out shoes or a change of clothes, while keep­ing them sep­a­rate from the rest of your be­long­ings.

STM Myth Lap­top Sleeve ($59.95)

Some­times you don't need to carry all the things with you. This fleece-lined 13-inch lap­top sleeve from STM is per­fect for those times when you just want to throw your lap­top or iPad Pro, and noth­ing else, into a bag and go. The re­mov­able shoul­der strap gives you the op­tion of us­ing the Myth as a stand­alone lap­top bag or as a sleeve to pro­tect your iPad or MacBook when you stash it in a big­ger bag.

LifeProof Goa 22L Back­pack ($159.99) This rugged back­pack from LifeProof eas­ily dou­bles as both a com­muter bag and hik­ing back­pack. I've tested its ca­pac­ity and found this de­cep­tively com­pact bag to eas­ily ac­com­mo­date a 15-inch lap­top along with a tablet, iPhone, two wa­ter bot­tles, and any­thing else you need for your work­day. You can even carry things that don't usu­ally fit into a back­pack, such as a yoga mat, us­ing the front tie downs. For out­door ad­ven­tures, you'll love the Goa's hy­dra­tion reservoir pocket and wa­ter-re­sis­tant con­struc­tion.
