Tablet Backpacks

Browse through the wide selection of tablet backpacks at Staples® to find the right bag to keep your gadgets safe while traveling to work or school. You can pick a laptop backpack or a school backpack to carry your tablet. It may have a dedicated tablet sleeve built into the main compartment or placed in front of it. If you choose a slim or small backpack, it will most likely have a single compartment where you can stow a laptop or tablet.

New Tablet Backpacks

The backpack size to choose depends on your height, build, and what you intend to carry with the bag. There are lightweight backpacks with tablet pockets that are suitable to use as daypacks or school bags for grade school students. You need a bigger bag to carry your laptop, books, and clothing along with a tablet. Backpacks with large capacities usually have more than one main compartment as well as multiple front and side pockets. You can fit a laptop and a tablet into a pack with a large main compartment as long as both devices are slim. To avoid scratching the screen of the mobile device, make sure it has a protective cover. Get a bag with a front pocket for quick access if you regularly pull out your tablet while carrying your backpack.

Find Tablet Backpacks With Ample Padding
A well-padded rolling backpack is easier to move and more comfortable than one with little or no foam added. Padded compartments and pockets will also protect your laptop and tablet from jarring bumps. If you carry a laptop bag with a tablet sleeve while traveling or walking to work or school, make sure it has straps packed with shock-absorbent materials like EVA foam. For maximum comfort, get a tablet backpack with padded and adjustable straps. Some brands offer straps in curved shapes that follow the contours of the neck, shoulders, and back. Besides straps and tablet sleeves, also look for bags with padded bottoms and back panels. Get one with a padded or molded plastic grab handle if you often carry your backpack that way.

Should You Consider Tablet Backpacks With Flap or Zip Closures?
A front pocket with a zipped closure is better than one with a flap closure. While flap-covered pockets provide quicker access, a zipper is more protective. A zip is better at keeping the contents of a tablet pocket from falling out while making it harder for someone to steal your device.

What Types of Fabrics Do Tablet Backpacks Have?
Commonly used fabrics for backpacks include polyester, nylon, and cotton canvas. Nylon and polyester are tough and lightweight materials while canvas is even tougher and also water-resistant. Materials used for trims and certain parts include mesh, leather, faux leather backpacks, and neoprene. Neoprene is waterproof, mesh is breathable, and leather materials add a premium look.

Are Tablet Backpacks Available With Removable Sleeves?
Yes. Removable laptop and tablet sleeves provide certain advantages. You can take out a backpack sleeve if your laptop or tablet is too big for it. A removable sleeve is also easier to wash. You can use a padded removable sleeve separately from the backpack when you only want a slim protective case for your tablet. Add a new tablet backpack to your children's school supplies list to help keep them organized for the entire year.
