The Backpack

A versatile backpack and one of our top picks for the New Year, the 16” Groove laptop bag is a great choice for the busy commuter or the experienced traveler. Whether you need a workhorse to get you to and from the office or you need a laptop bag that can hold all your essentials as you adventure around the world, this backpack for 2021 offers functional features that make your life much easier. Enjoy quick access pockets for your phone, tech accessories, and water as well as a foam padded laptop compartment with shock-absorbent materials.

The Roller

Rolling Laptop Bag

If you’re looking for a rolling laptop bag that can handle everything the New Year throws at you, our 15.4” Rolling Bag can keep up with weekend adventures, business trips, and long commutes by train or bus. Carry it on your back with comfort due to the padded, adjustable straps, or turn it into a basic roller with an easily extendable arm. This versatile backpack/roller bag combo also has protective PVC on the bottom to repel water, a removable laptop sleeve, and extended storage compartments for anyone who needs more space availability at all times.

The Convertible

Another 2021 backpack favorite, this convertible option transforms from tote to versatile backpack and then back again! The padding on the shoulder straps and handles makes every carrying position comfortable, while the stylish twill and leatherette accents actually create a water-resistant layer for the 15" Newport Convertible 2-in-1 Tote/Backpack.

Discover the protection even the most stylish Targus bag offers with a dedicated laptop compartment that’s extra padded to shield your tech — weaving in between shoppers at the mall or running to catch the bus.

The Messenger

Sometimes, a messenger bag is preferable to even the most versatile backpacks. We understand that preferences for different carrying configurations, shapes, and sizes range wildly, so we’ve developed a line of messenger bags that provide the same protection, comfort, and convenience as any of our other laptop bags. The CityGear® II Hybrid Messenger offers buckled exterior flaps for easy access to storage pockets, patented DOME technology for laptop security, and even a softly lined, dedicated compartment for your tablet.

The Minimalist

For the minimalist who likes to keep their luggage light, we offer two options: Sleeves and Form-Fit Cases.

Urban Laptop Sleeve

Whether you choose an Urban brand sleeve with a water-resistant exterior and foam interior lining or a Commercial-Grade Form-Fit Cover that offers enhanced corner and edge protection, you get a lightweight product that’s easy to take everywhere your tech needs to go.
