Top Leather Laptop Bags

Stylish leather laptop bags to protect and carry your computer in.

Have you been searching for a new bag to transport your laptop around in? Have you considered a leather laptop bag for this purpose? Personally, I think a leather bag is a wise choice because not only is it stylish but the leather adds a little extra protection due to its thicker nature than a cloth one offers.

There are nice leather bags that have a unisex appeal along with ones that will be more appealing to males and ones that are more feminine in their coloring and design. Besides the overall look of the bag we should also consider the functionality of the bag. Will it have enough compartments to carry the accessories and charger with us? Do you need room for taking office supplies and other devices with you, too?

Let's take a minute and look at some of your options in a bag for your laptop that is also designed in luscious leather.

Our laptop is an investment that we need to take care of and it is not wise to just carry it around with having it in some kind of protective bag or sleeve. First of all we do not want unsightly scratches on the cover. We also can not afford to have something bang into it causing damage to the hard drive or inner components. 

Since we most likely purchased it so that we could take it with us to work, school or when we travel besides being able to use it at home, a bag of some kind is a necessary purchase. 

Not only will a genuine leather bag provide the ability to carry our computer and all of its accessories but it will also give the impression that we are doing well enough to go the extra mile and get a quality bag.

A few tips for choosing a bag

I know we are tempted to look at the style of the bag first and let's face it, that is important. We want it to look awesome and unique. Something that, perhaps, says a little bit about our personality.

However, the very first thing that we need to look at before we fall in love with the overall look of the bag is: Will it accommodate the size of my laptop? I can't tell you how many times I have seen a style that I just loved only to discover that it was too small to carry my computer in. So, look at the dimensions first. Obviously a bag that is smaller is not an option. If the bag is larger sometimes you can make it work. Look at the construction to figure this out. If there are velcro straps or elastic straps that will secure it into place and not allow it to move around, you will probably be able to use it.  

Now, the next thing to consider is what else will you want to carry with your laptop. Does the bag give you room to carry the accessories and charger with you? Do you need pockets for file folders, notebooks and office supplies? Will you want some outer pockets for easy access for perhaps car keys, cell phone or plane tickets? Think about the other functions you need in your bag besides carrying and protecting your laptop.

Will you be taking it on business trips? Do you take it to the office each day? How will you use this bag? Those are important things to consider when choosing a laptop bag. My advice is to get one that does a little more than you will need on a daily basis so that when you need the extras they are there. 

Different ways to carry it

Another option to consider when choosing a bag is how you want to carry it. Do you prefer one that you can carry with a shoulder strap. If so, do you want it to be just over your shoulder or do you want it to be able to cross your body?

How about a handle for carrying with your hands? Is that important? Perhaps one with both options would be helpful. 

There are also laptop bags that come in leather that can be wheeled around instead of having to carry it with your hands or having the weight on your shoulders. These rolling bags are nice if you do a lot of traveling or have a long walk from your car or the subway to your office each day. Most have a retractable handle feature that allows you to carry it differently when the wheels are not needed.

You can decide which style will work the best for you.

Deciding on what laptop to buy is tough. Personally I went with a 13 inch laptop because it's just large enough to make typing a decent experience, yet small enough to carry.
A good laptop is just a bit too heavy be carried, so us ladies want a laptop bag on wheels, don't we? I've found you the best one on the market. No contest.
Lightweight, sturdy and able to go online, that's the basic feature list of a back to school laptop for teens, so which laptop should you get?
THE best way to carry a laptop is a backpack: great for your back, and perfect protection for your notebook.

I could make fun of the contents of my wife's handbag - but I have to admit that my laptop bag is every bit as bad. I carry everything in it, not just my computer.

I definitely like a leather one - the current one has lasted for about 10 years now, so well worth paying a little extra for. Plenty of compartments, pockets and loops is another thing that I like to see.
