What a gamer looks for in a laptop bag is very different to what many regular laptop users look for. You've got a lot of stuff to carry, so you need a bag that's up to the job.

The market for gamer-focused accessories isn't short on options, so if you're looking for a great laptop bag, get yourself one of these.

Better known for making chairs and racing cockpits, GT Omega has launched its first backpack and its an absolute winner. It'll cost around $70 in the U.S. and you can get it in one of three designs.

The bag can handle up to 17.3-inch laptops and the padded compartment is both shock-proof and has a raised surface you can use your laptop on and still get optimal cooling.

The chest strap will keep the load off your shoulders, it's water resistant and has so many pockets you can take all of your essentials on the road with you.

Dell Gaming Backpack 15

In the same black and red color scheme as the company's gaming laptops, this Dell backpack is good for carrying laptops up to 15-inches and assorted accessories.

It's great value at just $30 and is water resistant, so you're OK to go outside in the rain, and your expensive laptop will be safe.

The interior is foam padded, the laptop has a dedicated compartment, and there are plenty of pockets to stash all your peripherals. It's also well made and very robust so it should stand the test of time.

Alienware Vindicator Briefcase

This isn't your daddy's briefcase, so don't let the name put you off. The Vindicator is basically an armored messenger bag which means it's strong, but without the massive size some of the backpacks have.

Despite the messenger bag style, there's still room inside for a 17-inch laptop, a headset, mouse and tons of other goodies.

It's sturdy and well made, has plenty of padding and a dedicated laptop compartment that's checkpoint ready, hopefully helping you get through airport security a little easier. All this for around $85.

Razer Rogue

At around $90 this is one of the more expensive laptop bags, but it's got a unique selling point over the others in this list: it's tear proof. Throw in water resistance and what you've got is one really tough bag.

In typical Razer style, you're getting a black design with green accents, and it'll hold up to 15.6-inch laptops. Sadly it's not big enough for the Razer Blade Pro!

The inside is delightfully padded, and there are pockets galore and a chest strap connecting two thick over the shoulder ones to make the Rogue comfortable to carry around all day.

Astro Gaming Scout

The best thing about the Astro Scout isn't that it's big enough to carry your gaming laptop and other accessories, it's that it's big enough to carry your Xbox One and other accessories!

Sure, carrying a console around might not be the most common thing to do, but that doesn't mean it isn't important for some.

It's strong as well, with ballistic nylon shoulder straps, and even though it costs $100 it's a great way to protect your console and laptop when you take it out of the house.

The interior is padded for maximum protection, it's water repellent and has thick padded shoulder straps for comfort and support. It's available now for around $100.
