Laptop backpacks that don't look terrible?

10 posts in this topic

I was going to purchase this bag for my new Macbook Air, but I'm reading a bunch of reviews stating its durability degrades relatively fast.

 

What other laptop backpacks are out there that look nice, and last?

Did you look at the Targus backpacks? I've always gotten them for laptop backpacks. My original still works great, although it is too small. Meant for a 10" netbook, not a 15".

I lean towards Brooklyn Industries's bags.  I have an earlier version of this one, & mines is still perfect after ~5 years so seems pretty well made!  And it's not ugly ;)  (though that last point is more a personal preference, hah)

I love my Arcteryx  laptop bag !!! and it is SUPER durable and water resistant.   Just like you expect from them!

But is was expensive in comparison! Just like everything they make.  However, since I own a bunch of their stuff, and I love it, I pay more to get that.

 

It has TONS of nice things inside, and separate areas and pockets, etc and it screams quality build...   If you can afford it,  you would not be disappointed. They come in 3 sized for Blade model.

This thing can make it to hell and back:

If you're like me that travels a lot, and usually overcramps its bagpack, need lots of space, have edgy things on it, and want something that can protect your laptop even if it falls. Then my friend, this thing is for you. 

 

I've purchased a Swiss Gear backpack 3 years ago and that thing is nearly unscathed. I've tried other less known brands, but they haven't managed to get it close. 

 

This will protect laptops up to 17 inches, and will let you carry lots of your stuff: cables, adapters, and much more. It can handle lots of weight (from my perspective) without tearing apart (heh, life  time warranty isn't for show)

Hello,

 

I would suggest looking at bags from Briggs + Riley, Eagle Creek, Tom Bihn, Trager USA and Tumi

 

Lots of different models and looks in various materials and at various prices.

 

Regards,
