Whether you’re a bike commuter, subway straphanger or flying cross-country for work, your laptop will be in need of some protection. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of stylish options that also happen to be super functional. From slim briefcases to backpacks, we’ve rounded up the best bags that’ll fit a laptop and your other essential gear.

If you’re going for a more premium look, we love this sleek leather briefcase from Filson that features a padded laptop compartment and plenty of room for documents and accessories. The bag is built to last with solid brass hardware and a water-resistant canvas lining, and it even comes with a warranty.

Another great option is this minimalist essential laptop bags from Harber London that doubles as a messenger bag or tote. It fits a 13-inch MacBook Air or a similar size computer and has lots of extra pockets to keep everything organized. The envelope-style front flap holds on to the bag with magnets, which, while not as secure as a zipper, provides the right balance of convenience and security. We particularly love the interior sleeve that protects your computer from bumps and scrapes.

For those who prefer to carry their things over their back, there’s this popular laptop bag from Calpak. It has a ton of pockets, including an expandable front pocket that can hold up to a 15-inch laptop plus lunch, books and a water bottle. There’s also a secondary laptop sleeve, plus a plethora of other small embedded pockets for everything from USB chargers and headphones to pens, notebooks and pencils. It’s a GH Lab favorite, and the black colorway looks sharp with business attire.

This tech-themed version of the popular Rover pack from Topo Designs adds a heavily padded laptop compartment to the usual hiking bag specs like daisy-chain webbing, durable materials and water bottle pockets. It’s an ideal bag for commuting or traveling, and the hardback sheaths that sewn into the back of the pack between your laptop and the rest of the pack offer above-average protection from drops.

If you’re not into the backpack look, try this sleek hybrid bag from Veho that converts between a backpack and a tote for ultimate flexibility. It’s a GH Lab tester favorite thanks to the dual padded laptop compartment, smart styling and versatile black hardware. Throw this over your shoulder with a pair of slick sneakers and a bomber jacket for a city-ready look.
