The Hunt Is On: Premium Laptop Bags for Business Travel

While we’re primarily discussing laptop bags for business travel, these brilliant insights are bound to be of benefit even when you’re not on the clock. 

No doubt, you want to maintain your professional appearance and impress the socks off your clients and business partners, whether you’re simply on an intercity mission or embarking on a long-haul flight. Therefore, you’re going to pay attention to your luggage to complete the look that says responsible, experienced, and trustworthy.

As with so many things in today’s modern age, we enjoy a huge range of options when choosing the best laptop bag. The final decision rests on your unique style, your needs, and of course, your budget.

Let’s take a closer look at what’s out there.

Laptop Bag Necessities

Before choosing your preferred style of laptop bag, there are a few must-haves to consider. When you’re juggling bags, tickets, and passports, you want to know that your business laptop is safe and secure. With that in mind, be sure to look out for the following:

RFID Blocking

It can be difficult to determine the truth in a world saturated with fake news and opinion, and the topic of RFID-blocking is equally murky. The basic premise behind RFID blocking is to prevent criminals from scanning your card or personal details and stealing your information by encasing it within a secure material that blocks the scanning device. There are many sites out there that claim that this potential risk is merely a scam and we don’t need to protect our digital information. 

We feel that prevention is better than cure. With tap-and-go card payments available everywhere, it’s not a real stretch to imagine that people are not taking advantage of distracted travellers in a foreign city. Whatever your views, we encourage you to make use of Samsonite luggage which offers built-in RFID-blocking tech.

Protect Your Devices

We all agree that the point of a quality laptop bag is not so much to carry or transport our important devices but to keep them safe while doing so. Therefore, you want a decent amount of padding, minimal movement, and secure straps or clasps to ensure your laptop isn’t going to suffer any damage while you’re galloping to Gate 4C.

Double Duty

Would you rather carry one stylish laptop bag that comfortably contains your peripheral items and the essential bits and pieces you need in your carry-on luggage? Or would you prefer another bag just to make your trip a wee bit more challenging? Yes, Samsonite laptop bags are built for double duty; not only do they look good and do what you’d expect from a top-quality bag, but they have those little extra spaces and features that you didn’t know you needed.

A Step-By-Step Guide

What do your business trips look like? Are you expected to don the high-end, button-down look while in a bustling business hub? Do you enjoy a less formal environment in your local city? With this in mind, consider some of these laptop bag styles to help you choose the right one for you.

  1. Identify Your Needs: Before selecting a laptop bag, understand your specific requirements. Are you a frequent traveller? Do you carry additional tech devices? Do you need extra space for documents or clothing? Answers to these questions will help shape your choice.
  2. Choose the Bag Type: Laptop bags come in different forms – backpacks, messenger bags, briefcases, or rollers. Select the one that suits your style and comfort the most.
  3. Size and Fit: It is crucial that your laptop fits snugly in the bag. Check the bag’s laptop compartment size and ensure it matches your laptop’s dimensions.
  4. Check for Padding: Adequate padding is essential to protect your laptop from shocks and falls. Look for bags with padded compartments or sleeves.
  5. Evaluate Material and Durability: Choose a bag made of sturdy material that can withstand wear and tear. Materials like nylon, polyester, and leather are commonly used.
  6. Inspect the Design: Look at the bag’s design and organizational layout. It should have enough pockets and compartments for your other essentials such as chargers, notebooks, and pens.
  7. Look for Comfort: If you’ll be carrying the bag for long durations, ensure it has padded straps for comfort.
  8. Consider the Brand: Quality is often tied to the brand. Samsonite, for instance, is a leading brand known for its durable, well-designed, and stylish laptop bags.
  9. Choose Samsonite: Given their wide range of options, excellent quality, and reputation for durability, a Samsonite laptop bag is a wise choice for any business traveller. Their bags also come with warranties, further ensuring their longevity.


In conclusion, choosing the right laptop bag is a crucial task that requires a thoughtful evaluation of your personal needs, preferences, and lifestyle. It’s about finding the perfect blend of functionality, style, comfort, and durability. By considering factors like bag type, size, padding, material, design, and brand reputation, you’re on the right path to making an informed choice.

Samsonite, with its array of well-crafted and durable laptop bags, emerges as an excellent choice for business travellers. The brand’s commitment to quality, style, and practicality ensures that your travel experience is as smooth as possible, with your laptop and essentials protected and easily accessible.
