Whether you are a tech-head designing code in a coffee shop in Johannesburg, a digital nomad blogging your travel adventure from India to Iceland, or an attorney drafting legal documents on a plane from Nairobi, or you are editing photos of the Colosseum in Rome, Italy – laptops make it easy. Of course, having the right laptop bag makes it a lot easier.
As with any tech accessory, with laptop bags, one is largely spoilt for choice. From multi-coloured leather backpacks, hand-held sleeves, top loaders with a USB-wired mouse, and waterproof clamshells to over-the-shoulder totes with adjustable straps, these bags can be found in every shape, size, style, material, and price range. But to find the best bag for your buck, there are certain factors you need to consider:
Start by measuring your device to find the right fit that allows enough space for easy access. Aside from having the perfect-fit compartment, it should also hold space for your cables, drives, charger, and any other gadgets you use. To make it easy, make a list of all the items you need to carry with your laptop and make sure that the bag has enough room for them.
Style is Subjective
As an extension of personal style and an accessory, a notebook cover is something that you will carry around with you every day of the week, and perhaps even on weekends. While practicality and security are important factors to consider, the type of cover you choose should also depend on your lifestyle. That said, make sure that the design complements your personality and daily style.
Safety is a Must
Durable fabrics, waterproof lining, and high-quality locks are critical factors to consider, as any type of damage or loss of intellectual property can be inconvenient and pricey. The fabric must have extra padding to absorb impact, and particularly the shoulder strap, so that the spine is also well protected. Scratch-resistant compartments and plastic casings are also available for those who prefer a hard top for extra coverage. But most importantly, quality zips, and key or combination locks are musts for keeping a laptop safely locked in the bag.
