If you are working from coffee shops or other places outside your home, you will need a bag to store your tools. There are many things to consider when choosing the right fund. How big is your laptop? How many peripherals will you need on hand? How good is it to travel with them?
I’ve tried more bags than I care to admit, and two options have stood out to me for their quality, ease of use, and comfort. For most people, the Timbuk2 Q 2.0 is a good choice that fits very large laptops, with plenty of room left for a tablet, notebooks, or folders. A small pocket at the bottom of the bag is perfect for storing your chargers, and a small, padded pocket at the top can hold glasses or – me too – wireless headphones. I also get better on the days I decide to go to a place I like.
When I want to bring my gaming machine on the go, the Timbuk2 can’t fit my hulking, 17.5″ gaming laptop, so I found the perfect solution in the Razer Rogue 17 v3 bag. Here is an incomplete list of what I like to carry. in the Rogue: this large laptop, its amazingly large charger , my 14.6″ tablet, Native Instruments audio interface, mixed headphones, PS5 controller, stage microphone, XLR cables, USB cables, phone brick, USB hub, two portable SSDs, gaming mouse, two notebooks a Moleskine, five pens, a leather jacket, and my water bottle.
