The SwissGear 1900 Scansmart laptop bag is one of the highlights of our list. Made from 1200D ballistic polyester fabric, this black backpack looks classy, even though its design and appearance is that of a sports bag. It’s spacious, with large, sturdy zippers and a 31-liter volume, so you can pack more than just your laptop.
The rear zippered laptop compartment holds a 17-inch laptop (compartment size 14.5 x 11 x 1.5 inches) and a 10-inch tablet in its secure pocket (10 x 7 inches). The Scansmart compartment opens up and lies flat, with a laptop on one side and a tablet on the other. This design is TSA-friendly, so you don’t have to take your laptop out of your bag.
Inside the main compartment, the bag has many organized pockets, with an accordion file holder and an RFID-protect compartment with a removable key/fob clip and several distribution pockets. On the outside, there is one front pocket, two quick-access side pockets, and two mesh side pockets for storing a water bottle or umbrella.
We loved the design of this bag, with its sleek and contoured straps, air vents on the back, and a sturdy, molded top handle—perfect for carrying the bag on the go. The bag measures 18.25 x 13.25 x 9.0 inches.
