Whether you're on your daily commute or decompressing on a sandy shore somewhere, emails need to be sent, work needs to be done. Luckily, it's easier than ever to tote your laptop with you, since manufacturers have put smart, protective laptop sleeves in everything from backpacks and briefcases to messenger bags and airport luggage. Here are the 12 best computer bags, whether you're traveling by car, bike, or plane.
Duluth Pack Traveler's Portfolio
Commuting – or staying put for that matter – feels more like taking a kayak trip through the Boundary Waters when you're carrying the Traveler's Portfolio from Duluth Pack, a company that's been building strong, commonsense canvas and leather bags by hand in the same Minnesota factory for over a century. (The brand's original canoe utility pack cost $3, and we bet some of those early models are still kicking around the north country.) Crafted from rugged bison leather sourced on the Minnesota-North Dakota border, the Traveler's Portfolio can be carried as a briefcase or shoulder bag and has a well-organized interior that accommodates a laptop. Because the materials were made to take a beating, this is a luxury bag that's not precious. [Duluth Pack Bison Leather Traveler's Portfolio, $360; duluthpack.com]
