It’s an investment worth making. More often than not, we carry a very expensive laptop in a plain, flimsy backpack. Besides carrying your laptop safely, a carefully-chosen, stylish laptop bag can make a few heads turn as well. Here are some important things you should consider when choosing a laptop backpack:

1. ‘How will I use it?’ That’s the first question you should ask yourself. Decide if you want to carry only your laptop and a few accessories in it or you want the bag to double as a stylish overnight travel bag, with or without your laptop. Also, how you travel is another important factor to consider. If you use public transport, you would need need sturdy waterproof bags with extra padding that can withstand a rough ride. Always check the shoulder straps for adequate padding because you don’t want to end up with back and shoulder pain. 

2. Look for the right fit. A small laptop in a big backpack or a big laptop in a small bag is a situation you should avoid. If you know the size of your laptop, check the measurements of the bag so that you choose one that can easily accommodate it. Ensure there are enough compartments and pockets to carry accessories such as cords, mouse, USBs and other essentials.

3. Next, you should consider the fabric of the bag. Polyester, leather and nylon are some of the common fabric options for laptop bags. Ideally, your laptop bag should be sturdy but lightweight, waterproof and spacious. Check the zippers for grip and smooth functioning.

4. What is your style? If you are someone who takes the laptop bag only to work, you can consider the regular slim backpacks in monochrome shades. However, if you plan to use it for both work and travel, you can look at stylish options in bright colours. The bottom line is—go for something you like.
