These days, many backpacks include a laptop sleeve or pocket, but there are several more features that make a bag particularly functional when it comes to carrying your computer during travel or your daily commute. For example, a padded compartment specifically designed to hold a laptop is important for keeping your device safe and the rest of your bag organized. Similarly, bags that can stow larger laptops, including 15-inch and 17-inch devices, are perfect for business travelers.

The Kroser Laptop Backpack was made for commuting and business travel, thanks to its spacious laptop compartment, convenient pockets, and sleek design. Plus, this stylish bag has received rave reviews on Amazon and it's under $35.

The bag's exterior is made from durable, water-repellent poly fabric that is designed to keep your valuables dry. It's available in gray and black, each with brown leather details that give it a sleek, professional look that you can easily take from the airport to the office.

The backpack is available in two sizes, one with a padded sleeve that can accommodate laptops up to 15.6 inches and one for laptops up to 17.3 inches. There are also several other roomy pockets in the main compartment that can hold items like tablets, portable chargers, and books. In the front compartment, there are several smaller pockets meant for accessories such as a smartphone, keys, and pens. On the outside, you'll find two zippered pockets that can keep items like a water bottle or umbrella handy. There's also a built-in USB port that allows you to thread the cable of your portable charger through the bag, making charging your devices on the go a breeze. Plus, a luggage sleeve means you can place the bag on top of your rolling suitcase, so it's much easier to maneuver through busy airports.

Amazon shoppers rave about the convenience of this backpack, as well as how comfortable it is to carry. "Clean. Chic. Holds a lot of books and my laptop. What I especially like is the padding on the back and on the straps that help take the strain off my back and shoulders," one reviewer wrote.

Another shopper commented on the impressive capacity of this backpack. "This backpack is enormous, which is exactly why I purchased it. It fits my 17-inch laptop with ease and all of my folders and papers and other supplies that I need for work. Even though it’s pretty heavy by the time it’s loaded, the weight distribution is excellent and it rests easy on my shoulders without discomfort. I would highly recommend."
