If you’re like me you’ll be joining the masses and travelling over Thanksgiving. My laptop will be tucked into my Herman Miller bag – a simple take on the messenger bag in the same Pellicle fabric we use for our Aeron chairs. It’s the perfect size for my laptop, phone and various cables. Unfortunately we don’t sell them so I went on the lookout for some great alternatives that you can actually get your hands on. What did I look for? Versatility, ease of use and minimal styling. You really don’t need a ton of bells and whistles with a laptop bag. You want to be able to get your computer in and out of the bag easily and you want a nice wide shoulder strap so it doesn’t get uncomfortable while your trekking through the airport. Waterproofing is a plus, as is a padded internal laptop sleeve. Here’s what I found – let me know if you’ve got a favorite.
