15 Stylish and Functional Backpacks That Fit a 15-inch Laptop

Backpacks are in. They are stylish, functional, and ergonomic. There is a fine line between a backpack that makes you look like you’re in grade school and one that makes you look like an adult. So here are 15 backpacks—that also happen to fit a 15-inch laptop—that are perfect for the office, while still remaining functional.

This backpack is the perfect tech bag for a minimalist. It has a simple, yet functional, design.

Its hidden compartment underneath the flap is perfect for storing valuables but is still easy to access. It also has a pass-through sleeve for luggage, making it great for travel.

Kroser Laptop Backpack

This stylish backpack is definitely the most affordable one on this list. It is made from nylon with faux leather accents, so it is water-resistant. It has plenty of storage compartments and side pockets, which is always a plus. They also have a ton of great reviews on Amazon, which almost always convinces me to purchase something.

Lo & Sons The Rowledge Backpack

It has a pass-through sleeve, making it great for travel. There is also a side pocket for your water bottle, which is always a plus. It is made out of nylon with leather accents, making it water-resistant. While a 15-inch laptop does not technically fit in the laptop sleeve, it does fit in the main compartment. This backpack is just so great that I had to include it!

TUMI Brooklyn Double Compartment Backpack

This backpack has a sleek and professional look while still remaining spacious. It has a separate laptop compartment and an interior water bottle holder. It also has a shoe compartment, making this backpack perfect for going to the gym before/after the office.

I have learned the importance of investing in a high-quality piece. It is much better to invest in an item that will last forever than to skimp out and then have to constantly replace it. Hopefully, these 15 backpack options give you a head-start on deciding on your future work backpack!
