The Hunt for the Perfect Laptop or Tablet Bag

Did you know that most consumers spend more time researching which bag to buy for their new laptop than they spend researching the laptop itself?  It's true.  Choosing a bag or case for your expensive investment is not an easy task.  Luckily, we have a few tips and tricks to help narrow your options.

The first step in the search is to consider a few obvious questions.

  • What type of bag design do you like?
  • What size is your laptop?
  • What is your budget?
  • What else do you need to carry in the bag besides your laptop?
  • How often will you be carrying this bag and what is the average distance?

Once these questions are answered, you can begin to narrow down your decision.  Here are a few pointers about each of the bag types we carry here at Empire:

Messenger Bags

Messenger bags are typically carried on the shoulder or by attached carrying handles.  They are generally in a horizontal orientation and hold a small to medium amount of cargo.  Our messengers are lightweight with genuine leather throughout for durability.  They have dedicated sleeves to securely hold your notebook as well as other essentials.

Duffel Bags and Totes

Duffel bags are generally designed to hold clothes or larger items and are not often considered to carry tech products.  Likewise, totes are often considered by women as larger alternatives to purses.  Neither product would generally be ideal as a laptop bag.  Luckily, the melding of these uses is now possible with our latest innovations.  Our duffel bags and totes are both some of the first such bags to contain built-in cutouts to support and protect laptop computers, while also maintaining all the style and function of more traditional bags.


Backpacks have always been the most effective way to carry heavy loads.  They are obviously most popular among students, who are tasked with lugging heavy textbooks all over school.  Typical backpacks have a cavernous opening for books, but not much organization otherwise.  Our backpacks have separate zippered pockets specifically to separate and protect your laptop from other heavy items.


Briefcases are popular among business persons for their sharp appearance and simple, lightweight design.  The traditional briefcase isn't large enough to hold a laptop, but as devices have gotten smaller and lighter, it is now possible.  Our briefcases are the ultimate in form and function, with dedicated laptop sleeves and divided areas for documents and folders, you're sure to find the perfect option for you.

Summing Up

Regardless of the bag type you're looking for, we have something to meet any need.  Our bags are custom made by hand with only the highest quality materials and expert craftsmanship.  You will not be disappointed.
