The trick to buying the coolest backpacks for laptops is not shop for laptop bags that look like laptop bags. Due to the extra padding that is needed to protect the laptop from bumps and falls, most laptop bags that you see in the market are fat and bulky. Regardless of whether you are into fashion or not, lugging a fat backpack on your back all day is not aesthetically pleasing. If you are going to spend money buying a good backpack for your laptop, you might as well get one that looks good on you. Besides its thickness, color should also be another main consideration when it comes to buying bags. As much as possible, try to stick to dark neutral colors such as brown and black as they are more timeless and easier to match. Check out our list of cool backpacks for laptops.
Professional Gear Backpack (Accessory Genie)
This laptop backpack is the inspector gadget of all laptop backpacks. It is designed to store laptops of up to 17 inches in size, as well as a myriad of professional DSLR cameras and their accompanying accessories. This back pack can be opened from the top, side and the front and has a wide array of compartments to store your laptop, its accessories, phones, stationeries, water bottles, camera lens, camcorders, tripods, and pretty just about anything that can fit into those compartments. The insides of the bag are fully padded with thick padding for maximum protection. The outsides of the backpack are made from weatherproof materials and it also comes with a tarp to shield the bag from heavy snow or rain. The backpack slings are also very versatile where you can adjust it to either carry the bag as a backpack or as a sling bag. Although this backpack is relatively spacious, measuring in at 18 x 12 x 8 inches in dimensions, it looks slimmer than it really is, thanks to its boxy and elongated design. If you are looking for a practical, versatile and good-looking laptop backpack, look no further; this is the backpack for you.
Brenthaven ProStyle Slimpack
We feel that the perfect backpack for laptops should have a perfect balance between aesthetics and practicality and we think that the Brenthaven ProStyle Slimpack has this. At first glance, the first thing that would strike you is how slim and compact it is. The bag measures in at just 12.5 x 18 x 3 inches in dimensions that is extremely slim by any backpack standards. Despite its slim profile, you can pack in a 15-inch laptop together with its accessories into this bag. Some even managed to pack in their 17-inch laptop into it. The backpack is padded with high-density foam and the laptop is suspended from the bottom of the back to further protect it in even of drops.
Although this backpack is already water resistant on its own, there is a built-in rain-fly to further protect the bag and its contents from harsher elements. Aesthetically, we really like the big flip over flap that hides all the details of the bag. It gives the backpack a rather sleek, minimalist and stylish look. The only downside to this bag is that other than keeping laptops and a few of its essential accessories, it is unlikely that you will be able to fit in anything else due to its 3-inch width. Nevertheless, we are sure that many of you would think that that is an absolutely negligible price to pay for such a stylish laptop bag.
Good&god Canvas Backpack
This canvas backpack can carry laptops of up to 14-inch in dimensions with plenty of room to spare for its accessories. As slim as it looks, you can actually pack in quite a lot into this bag, thanks to the lack of compartment on the inside. The inside of the backpack consist of a single large compartment for you to store you laptop and other gadgets. We really like the vintage look on this bag and canvas is a material that is known for their durability. A note of caution: this bag is more of a looker than it is practical. The main compartment inside the bag is not padded, so it is advisable to put your laptop in a plush laptop sleep for the extra padding before you put in into this bag. Despite that, we still really like this canvas bag due to its subtle, timeless and aesthetically pleasing neutral design.
Belkin Slim 15″ Notebook Polyester Backpack
For those who are looking for a simple, straightforward and stylish backpack without all the bells and whistles, you can consider yourself getting yourself this Belkin laptop backpack. There is nothing groundbreaking about this backpack model, whether it is in terms of design or features, but it made its way into this list precisely for those reasons. The bag is very well made and its subtle design and looks are made to withstand the test of time and design trends. It is designed to quietly blend in into its surroundings and remained unnoticed. The backpack is designed to house laptops that are 15.4-inches in size or smaller, with enough space for laptop accessories and perhaps a textbook or two. It is quite hard to explain the appeal of this Belkin laptop backpack. We really like this backpack model for its ordinariness. It is delightfully ordinary and subtle, making it the perfect buy for anyone who is looking for a simple, non-conversation-starter, laptop bag.
