Reviewed: Our Favourite Laptop Backpacks

We hold our backpacks to the same high standards as everything else we review and buy, and while we’d like to pick a “best backpack,” we know it’s impossible to make one pick that fits everyone’s style, budget, body type, and carrying needs. So we’ve highlighted a few of our favourite laptop-backpack models and brands: bags for the workplace, a jack-of-all-trades, a weatherproof commuter, and a single bag for work and the gym.


If It Actually Played Classic 8-Bit Games, This NES Would Be The Perfect Backpack

Remember packing up your original Nintendo Entertainment System when your family visited relatives for a few days? You couldn’t possibly be expected to go a few days without Punch-Out!!, but it would have been a lot easier if you had an NES built into a backpack. It’s just too bad this one doesn’t actually play games.


Legend Of Zelda Shield Backpack Must Be How Link Carries All That Gear

It’s always been a bit of a mystery how a child could carry a vast arsenal of medieval weapons, bombs, potions, and instruments in nothing but a tunic. But we might finally have an answer if it turns out Link’s shield was secretly always really a backpack.


This Chewbackpack Is The Best Way To Carry Home Your Star Wars Treasures

Not sure if you can pull off a full Chewbacca hoodie? This Chewbacca backpack is a nice compromise because the furry hood is detachable for those times when you’re not waiting in line with hundreds of other understanding Star Wars fans.


You Know You Want This Frozen Han Solo Backpack

Who cares about ergonomics and proper weight distribution when you can get a backpack from Comic Images featuring your favourite Star Wars characters? If carbonite can keep a human alive and well-preserved, your textbooks, tablets and laptop should be perfectly safe in this Han Solo pack.


You Don't Have To Take This Backpack Off To Get At Your Stuff

The one thing that makes backpacks great (they’re always out of the way) is also the one thing that makes them annoying when you need something. Paul Vierthaler agrees, and has come up with a rather clever solution called the Paxis that makes it easy to access some of your stuff.


The Perfect Groot Costume Starts With This Rocket Raccoon Backpack

Hunt Hydra At Your High School With A Captain America Shield Backpack

Since both vibranium and adamantium only exist in the comic book world, ThinkGeek had to settle on lightweight plastic to make its new Captain America Shield backpack. So it won’t stop bullets or blows from mythical hammers, but it will be comfortable to carry when crammed full of textbooks and your laptop.


You Always Have A Place To Sit When Your Backpack Turns Into A Stool

Unless you’re just wandering off into the wilderness for a week, there’s often a lot of waiting involved when travelling — whether it’s for a flight, a hotel room, a taxi, or even dinner. So for all those times when you’re stuck in line with no place to sit, the Bagobago might actually be the best travelling companion since it’s a lightweight backpack with a compact stool built right in.


I Totally Want This Camera Bag That Looks Like A Normal Bag

Camera bags are not only almost always ugly, but they also shout to the world that you are carrying expensive objects around. The Brevitē is a backpack that looks gloriously normal yet has all the necessary compartments to stow your camera gear.
