Here is a list of laptop bags that go the extra mile to keep your work safe

Your laptop bag does double duty: it’s got to keep your laptop safe, look and feel good, and also work to store your other digital gear, which makes getting one an important and difficult purchase decision. To make things easier, here are some bags that work hard at giving you more.

Targus, Revolution Terra

₹2,500; amazon.in

Featuring a built-in concealed rain cover and a water-resistant bottom, this is good for rainy areas and travel. A porthole pocket ensures you can listen to music with your phone or MP3 player safely in the bag. Dualside pockets are useful for bottles during a long day outdoors. It fits a 15.6-inch wide-screen laptop.

Belkin Active Pro

₹3,999; amazon.in

The Active Pro lives up to its brand name, with its extra-cushioned laptop compartment, vertical pockets for quick access, and well-padded shoulder straps and back, plus a ‘hidden pocket’ for putting in a valuable extra. The bag also features water-resistant coating on the base for better protection. Its safety features include a reflective strip for low light and a loop for a bike light. Available in black and grey, it fits a 15.6-inch laptop.

VIP Triumph DG, Laptop Satchel, Strolly

₹9,300; vipbags.com

So you’re going out of town and cannot be bothered carrying more than one piece of luggage? VIP’s Satchel Strolly has spacious compartments for your laptop, tablet, and a set of clothes. The bag has a TSA lock for security and corner guard for enhanced protection.

Baggit G Million, Y G Radar

₹3,900; baggit.com

This cross-body messenger bag is made from vegan leather and has space and style going for it. You can actually carry your office in there, without it looking like all bulked-up.

ASUS ROG XRanger Backpack

₹11,900; amazon.in

The padding on this one is great and the pockets are labelled for accessories and a smartphone — perfect for a gaming kit. There’s an external bottle net too. And it can fit a 17-inch laptop.

Lugg Plus

₹1,899; lugggear.com (preorder)

    This water-proof bag has a power bank fitted inside that you can use to charge your device via the external USB port. The zips and pockets are not facing the front, so there’s a lower chance of somebody quietly opening up your bag while you are carrying it around on your back (the company calls it an anti-theft mechanism). Fits a standard 15-inch laptop.
