15 Best Laptop Bags for Women in 2024

Whether you’re commuting to an office or a coffee shop, you need a high-quality work bag that will house your everyday office essentials and ensure your laptop — arguably your most important job tool — stays safe.

We know it can be tempting to carry your laptop in a cute canvas tote, because after all, laptop bags haven’t had the most stylish reputation. However, flimsy bags like canvas totes won’t protect your device from physical damage and the straps provide insufficient support, which can ultimately cause pain and affect your posture. Luckily there is such a wide range of options on the market nowadays, from work backpacks to leather totes, and the best laptop bags for women are the ones that seamlessly combine fashion and function.

Our picks below are all good-looking, spacious and durable; now you just have to find the one that’s best for you. So when perusing the options, consider all the factors, including material, the number of pockets, size of your laptop and more. Whichever style you end up choosing, your morning commute is about to get easier.

The CALPAK Kaya Leather Laptop Backpack is beloved by hundreds of shoppers for its sleek silhouette, statement stitching, separate laptop compartment, and travel-friendly design. While it's only sold in two colors at Nordstrom, it's offered in 21 colors, including the most perfect Barbie pink and bright orange hues.

By looks alone, you'd probably never guess that this faux croc laptop bag costs less than $40. The water-repellent and scratch-resistant bag, which is sold in 10 colors, has a spacious interior with a padded laptop compartment, as well as two large file compartments. It's ideal for carrying a laptop, tablet, books, and more.

Looking for a chic, professional laptop bag without a luxury price tag? The KTMOUW delivers. Sold in 10 colors, the water-resistant PU leather tote features a padded laptop sleeve plus two file pockets and additional smaller slip pockets for optimal organization.

Lululemon 's All Day Essentials Tote Bag is made of water-repellent recycled polyester and features a zip top, padded laptop sleeve, water bottle pocket, and more. It's great for relaxed office settings and casual occasions when you want to bring your laptop along for the ride.

The CALPAK Haven Laptop Tote Bag is perfect for anyone shopping for a bag that does it all. The faux leather tote features a removable organizer that fits a laptop, charger, books, pens, pencils, and more. When you don't need it for work, you can ditch the organizer and use the empty, spacious bag as a tote to run errands or even as an overnight bag.

The Bostanten Leather Laptop Tote is your classic leather work bag, complete with adjustable straps and a removable messenger strap. Sold in 11 colors, this bag has a wow-worthy interior, showcasing a laptop compartment, two slip pockets, two pen compartments, and a larger zip pocket.

This quilted polyester bag is slim and lightweight, and designed to fit the essentials, including a laptop, charger, notebook, pens, phone, wallet, and keys. Plus, its compact design can help keep you from over-carrying.

The ECOSUSI Laptop Briefcase Backpack has a chic vintage-inspired style that can be carried in a number of ways, including as a backpack, messenger bag, and top-handle briefcase. The convertible bag is made with PU leather, so it's easy to wipe clean.

The Tory Burch Perry Triple-Compartment Tote is made of Italian pebbled leather and looks as luxe as it smells. While it doesn't have a dedicated laptop sleeve, the individual compartments give it a safe, secure place to store one.

Nylon backpacks look professional and sleek — especially when they include quilted accents like the LOVEVOOK Laptop Backpack does. It's sold in 36 colors and features a separate zip laptop compartment, as well as an additional padded sleeve for a tablet in the main compartment. Best of all, there's a backpack option for every laptop size.

Tired of your phone dying on the commute home? This quilted laptop bag comes with a USB port, so you can stay charged wherever you are. Plus, it features an organized interior outfitted with a laptop sleeve and various pockets, as well as a smart exterior with an easy-to-reach pocket perfect for storing phones, wallets, sunglasses and more.

If you need a lot of space and like a bold pop of color, consider the colorblock CYUREAY Convertible Tote Daypack Laptop Backpack. The boxy silhouette can be carried as a tote or a backpack and features a padded laptop sleeve, hidden trolley sleeve, USB port, and more.

The CALPAK Luka Expandable Laptop Tote is a great pick for so many reasons. It's sold in 11 colors, features a 4-inch expandable bottom, has a hidden side pocket, a trolley sleeve, and an organized interior.

If you're a mom, no laptop bag for women compares to the Dagne Dover Large Wade Diaper Tote. In addition to having places to put bottles, wipes, a changing pad, plus your phone, wallets, and keys, it has a padded laptop compartment for working mamas, too.

The Fjallraven Women's Kanken Totepack is made of water-resistant, man-made fabric that holds up well on hikes and when protecting fragile laptops. Fabric aside, this bag is unique because it can be carried as a backpack or tote.

✔️ Size: Before buying a laptop bag, make sure to check the size of the laptop sleeve. Otherwise, you'll be frustrated if the bag arrives and your laptop doesn't fit.

✔️ Functionality: No two laptop bags are identical, so Jeannie Shin, Director of Marketing at CALPAK, recommends thinking about your biggest priorities. A safe space for your laptop is just one part of the equation. Perhaps you want a bag with lots of extra pockets for on-the-go organization, or maybe you'd prefer a removable organizer that lets your laptop bag serve two purposes. Maybe you need a bag that has multiple carrying options for comfortable, convenient commuting, or perhaps you specifically want a backpack laptop bag so you can be hands-free. Whatever the case may be, there’s a laptop bag to fit your fancy.

✔️ Material: When shopping for a high-quality laptop bag for women, prioritize silhouettes made of durable materials, such as wipeable, water-resistant polyester and nylon, padded neoprene, and classic leather (or vegan leather).

The best laptop bag for women is subjective. “It all comes down to individual style and comfort preferences,” says Shin. “Backpacks offer the convenience of being hands-free, while totes are often favored by customers who appreciate a versatile day-to-night aesthetic.”

The trick to finding a comfortable laptop bag or backpack is to pick a style with wide, padded straps that distribute the weight and cushion against it.

Traditional canvas tote bags don’t offer much in terms of protection for laptops. That said, if a tote is your favorite work accessory, opt for a structured silhouette with a dedicated laptop sleeve to ensure your tech stays secure and protected.
