We got a request for a roundup of men’s laptop bags from one of our readers after seeing our top picks of women’s designer laptop bags. Totally understandable, because why do you guys have to suffer with boring, ugly, or worse, generic laptop bags.
For the modern man, the simplicity of the Jack Spade messenger makes it our favorite.

If you are mainly looking for function, then these two bags are for you.
There are a few important things to keep in mind when shopping for your laptop bag. Other than a price you can afford, they are the following:
- Comfort- How does it feel on your shoulder? Easy to carry, etc?
- Weight-Does the bag itself weigh 5lbs? It may not be the one for you since your laptop will create enough weight on it’s own
- Style- Do you like looking at it? Does it fit with who you are and what you’re about?
- Quality- Does it feel like it’s about to fall apart or like it could really survive all the frequent business flights you’ll be on?
