More and more people are working out of the office a lot. Whether this means sitting at the local coffee shop, in the park, or at home, most of these people are using laptops. Two problems come with having a “mobile office”. First, is organization because hauling along all those peripherals and office supplies can become a hassle. Second, is safety/durability because if anything were to happen to your laptop, which likely has your whole life saved on it, you would be lost. Obviously the way to address these two issues is by buying an adequate laptop bag, and as always, Luggage Pros is here to help. Below are two best-rated third party reviewed laptop bags that we carry. It is not a coincidence that both are made by Brenthaven, a company that prides itself on functional quality and durability.
Top Rated Briefcase-Style Laptop Bag
Brenthaven MetroLite II Laptop Shoulder Case – This bag is stylish, durable, and functional. For such a thin case, the padding is very thick and impact absorbent. Your laptop will be safe and secure. A very functional front accessory pocket is perfect for all your cords and accessories. An optional shoulder strap is also included. The one downside of this bag is that there is not much space for transporting books, notebooks, files, etc. At a price of $79.00 this is a great bag for the someone who sporadically takes their laptop out of the home and/or office to work.
Top Rated Wheeled Computer Bag
Brenthaven Duo II Wheeled Case – This laptop bag is perfect for the road warrior and/or those people who need to constantly have multitudes of files and paperwork with them, as well as their laptop. This bag is a bit on the heavier side, which is normal for wheeled bags, but it provides great padded protection for the laptop, and has a second main compartment for all your notebooks and paperwork, as well as an organizational pocked for all the necessary laptop accessories.
