The Surface Book is a pretty expensive laptop, and as such, you're going to want to take the best care possible of it when you're out and about. As it stands, our ultimate choice is the simply exquisite Waterfield Tech Rolltop. It's pricey, yes, but as far as a bag for all occasions, it fits the bill perfectly. It'll keep your Surface Book safe, it looks great, and it's got space for a quite ridiculous amount of stuff inside.

Similar things can also be said of Peak Design's Everyday Messenger from a company that has gained a massive fanbase in recent years. Not only is it a good laptop bag, but it's clever, with an innovative interior to help you truly maximize your everyday carry. And the water-resistant coating on the outside is mind-blowingly good.

And then there's the super-budget AmazonBasics backpack. It isn't fancy, and it looks a bit boring perhaps, but the price is extremely attractive, it's big enough for either Surface Book and several accessories, and it's pretty durable. Ultimately, it's hard to go wrong with any of these great bags.
