Bag It!

By  April 28, 2014


Whether you prefer backpacks, messengers, or briefcases, it’s you need a good looking and dependable bag to carry your gadgets, laptops, books, cameras and other goodies around town. Here are a few of my favorites.


Waterfield Staad Laptop Backpack ($319-$329)


Made to order from leather and waxed canvas, the Staad has a great lived-in look the minute you get it. The bag offers plentiful storage for your laptop and tablet, with quick-access angled zipper pockets on front, and a smartly designed interior.


LowePro Transit Sling 250AW ($99)


If you’re into photography, this bag is for you. It provides a flexible, padded interior layout for your camera, lenses and accessories, and an easy-access flap which lets you grab your camera without taking the bag off your shoulder.


Cocoon SLIM Backpack ($80)

This slimline backpack can hold up to a 15” MacBook Pro, and iPad and numerous other gadgets, but it’s only 3.5” thick. It’s also got Cocoon’s GRID-IT built in, for easy  and flexible storage of cables, chargers, and other small gadgets.



Henty Wingman Garment Bag ($199)

A suit bag designed for commuters, the Wingman is perfect for working overnighters. Inside, it keeps a suit, shirt and trousers neat and crease-free, while a large outer zipper compartment has space for a tablet, and other small objects. Includes a standalone gym bag for your shoes and workout wear.
