To find the best laptop bags for work, we read style blogs, bag forums, and online reviews, and we consulted our co-workers about what makes a great laptop tote. Then we compiled a list of 55 laptop tote bags that had excellent reviews, and we noted the price of each bag, its availability across retailers, third-party reviews, the size, and the materials used. We also listed each bag’s notable features, such as zippered compartments, a dedicated laptop pocket, a crossbody strap, color options, and warranty coverage. Then we divided the laptop bags into five categories based on their overall design and price: black-hole tote bags, budget tote bags (usually under $50), convertible bags, traditional totes, and travel laptop tote bags.
We narrowed down the pool based on overall features and selected 23 bags for testing, from black-hole and convertible bags to traditional and travel totes:
