Best laptop backpacks 2022

Laptop backpacks allow you to easily take your favorite device with you, and they also help keep your laptop safe from the elements and other forms of damage as well. On top of that, they also have plenty of extra room for important accessories and peripherals like phones, chargers, USB hubs, and other gear. Because of this, having one is an excellent idea, especially if you commute to work a lot or you're a university student who moves around campus frequently. Here's a list of our favorites.

Backpacks are one of the best accessories for laptop owners, as they do an excellent job of protecting your device (and your accessories for it) while also making them easy to carry around. All of the backpacks in this roundup will be an excellent choice for your laptop, but if we had to pick just one, it would be the SwissGear 1900 Scansmart. It offers the best balance of protectiveness, extra space, and pricing on the market, and when you consider how much value it brings to the table, it's easy to see why it's our top choice.

Folks who want something on the smaller size should opt for the Solo Duane Convertible Briefcase, as it protects your laptop well while not taking up too much space on your back. The fact that you can use it as either a backpack or a briefcase is really cool, too, since a backpack configuration won't always be ideal for every situation.

Finally, if you're looking for something stylish, we recommend the TIDING Leather Laptop Backpack. It's made out of quality, genuine leather that looks phenomenal, and there's plenty of space and padding on the inside of the backpack too.
