Laptop Backpacks

Traveling with electronic devices means safeguarding against bumps, shocks and drops that can cause damage. A laptop backpack makes an excellent solution for those who use their computers on the go, whether for business or pleasure. These specialty bags usually contain a padded compartment with straps to secure the device in place. In addition to laptops, they also work well for tablets and smartphones.

Durable Materials Provide Sturdy Carrying Options
While many modern laptops have lightweight, slim profiles, it's still important to have a strong bag that can withstand the weight. Many computer backpacks feature durable denier polyester construction, a material that can stand up to constant use and carry heavy loads. Others are made with either leather or nylon, or sometimes a combination of both.

Ergonomic Features Improve Carrying Comfort
Since laptop backpacks also hold books and other school or business supplies, ergonomic features help reduce the strain the weight places on the neck, shoulders and back areas. Padded and contoured straps provide cushioning while sternum straps stabilize the bag. Breathable panels promote airflow, keeping the user's back dry and cool. Some have a cross-body strap that evenly distributes the weight across the body for easy carrying.

Pockets Store Additional Accessories
One benefit of a laptop backpack is that many come with additional pockets or roomy main compartments for storing additional materials. Front pockets often contain an organizer with a zippered pouch and slots for writing utensils. These pouches can also hold a mouse, stylus and power cords, as well as USB sticks and flash drives. Some even have media slots for holding MP3 players with a small port for earbud wires. Side pockets keep beverages or house and car keys within quick reach.

What Size Laptop Backpack Do You Need?
Before you purchase a computer backpack, be sure to ascertain that it's the right size. Laptops vary in screen size, ranging from 10 to 17 inches wide. Most backpacks fit screens up to 15.6 inches, though some messenger bags work well for even larger devices. Also consider the supplies that accompany the device such as a mouse, external keyboard and a power brick or cord. Buying a bag with a bigger sleeve is better than buying one that's too small.

What is a Laptop Compartment Made of?
Laptop compartments usually have high-density foam insulation that's designed to absorb the impact from an accidental bump or drop. This material also works well at absorbing shocks and protecting the infrastructure of the computer. Some laptop backpacks have a removable sleeve that envelopes the device before you place it into the dedicated compartment. This offers a bit more protection as it surrounds the device inside the bag.

Do Computer Backpacks Protect Against the Elements?
Some brands offer water-resistant backpacks that can withstand short-term exposure to the elements. This includes rain, snow and sleet. Some are even water-resistant when submerged in shallow bodies of water for short periods of time, though this is not recommended.

Laptop bags help protect your investment, offering a safe way to transport your gear. With a variety of sizes and styles available, you can shop Staples and find solutions from popular brands such as Jansport, High Sierra and SwissGear.
