How to Choose the Right Laptop Case to Travel With

Traveling is a way of life for some, while others travel only occasionally for business or pleasure. Whatever the reason for your travel, a laptop is often at the top of the list. There are many laptop cases and bags to choose from to ensure that your laptop travels safely.

The important thing to do is assess your needs and shop for a case accordingly.

1.      Fashionable laptop cases. If style is your thing, then you’ll be wanting a laptop bag that reflects your personal style; something with detail, perhaps a bright color. Cabrelli  and Knomo make women’s business bags that marry style and function effortlessly. You can pick a bag that suits you and feel confident that you will have the features and convenience you need as well.

2.      Rolling laptop bags. This is an essential feature for many people who find their bags get too heavy with a laptop and work files inside. Rolling cases are easy to handle and take stress off the neck, back and shoulders. Samsonite and High Sierra make rolling business cases and rolling laptop backpacks that will give you the room you need for all of your essentials.

3.      Leather laptop bags. For a more polished and professional look, you might opt for a leather bag. Nothing feels as elegant as a leather briefcase. In addition, leather is durable and rugged and can withstand years of use. Oftentimes, leather bags look better with age. They take on a well worn patina that leather lovers covet. For the best leather bags available, you must look at Hartmann, Kenneth Cole Reaction and Johnston & Murphy.

Seeking the Right iPad Cases or Laptop Bags? We’ve got it.

We’ve all been there.  Trying to hold a cup of coffee, your tablet or iPad (without a case, as you were too busy packing last minute to shop around the myriad of cases out there) precariously balanced on your carry-on, reaching for that boarding pass, and… bang.   Something slips and you see your shiny gadget slip and hit the floor with a sickening crack.  Maybe it’s ok.  Most likely, it’s not.   If only you’d had the right iPad case or laptop bag.

Irv’s Luggage empathizes with you, and we refuse to let you risk that indignity if you visit our stores.  As such, we have a number of iPad cases, briefcases, and other solutions that not only protect your toys from coffee, but gravity as well.

Tucano Laptop Bags

Say hello to Yves Francois; he will help you find what you need!

We carry a variety of products and an even wider variety of prices, but a good range would be between STM, Tucano, and Le Donne.  No matter what your price range is, you’ll find something for yourself amongst those three brands.  Let’s have a closer look at the Tucano and STM, for starters.

A favorite iPad sleeve would be the Tucano Finatex Sleeve which is more moderately priced, compared to another favorite, the Le Donne Leather iPad Day Bag.

Whatever your preference, it’s there on the show floor.  And if you can’t make it to either of our brick and mortar stores, find us on the web at IrvsLuggage.com.  Our items offer sturdy construction, soft lining, and robust fastenings to ensure the safety of whatever you’re carrying.  Sure, some pieces will take a drop better than others but whatever you feel you will need, whether it’s to protect from the elements or greasy fingers, we can accommodate.

For demonstrative purposes, here’s a comparison shot of an STM “Jacket” against the size of my own tablet with a hard case.  Nothing says you’re protected like giving yourself a double measure of safety from crashes, bangs, and bumps.

Fall means the holidays, and the holidays mean travel.  We offer high-quality, tough, merchandise for your device and look to have whatever fits your needs and preferences.  As you begin to make your travel plans in this new day and age our phones and devices are almost as important as remembering your boarding pass.   Don’t take the risk of going out there with your device unprotected and leaving you out in the cold or looking for a pay phone.

The Best Road Warrior Business Cases

David, Irv’s Luggage chief business case buyer knows “road warriors”, business people traveling multiple weeks a year, need a briefcase they can rely on. David has been a buyer for over 30 years, therefore he also knows checkpoint friendly, lightweight, organizational, durable wheel and handle systems and high quality zippers summarize the most important characteristics these professionals desire in their briefcases.  David’s top choices for the “road warrior” business cases includes bags from the Briggs & Riley @Work, and Victorinox Architecture Series and here’s why.

Briggs & Riley @Work 15.4” Executive Expandable Rolling Brief:  Made of extremely strong lightweight 1680 ballistic nylon, with three sections for your computer, files, and business   accessories including a padded laptop section and sleeve that is checkpoint friendly. David points out, having an EZ Scan, checkpoint friendly case will help reduce the risk of damage or loss when passing through security; hundreds of laptops are lost every year because business travelers have to take their laptops out.  Another reason David loves this bag are the great organizational features including: a front slip pocket with concealed cell phone holder; organizer with padded pockets for electronic gadgets and multiple pockets for USB drives, CDs, Blue-Ray Disks, computer cord, mouse etc.  Also for those overnight business trips this brief has a fan file and a section for a change of clothes and finally with the “stretch tech” side gussets opening wide for easy access, self repairing durable YKK racquet coil zippers and interlocking handle system, Briggs & Riley has thought of everything for smooth business travel.

Victorinox Architecture 3.0 Rolling Trevi Expandable Wheeled Laptop Case:  Also made from trusted ballistic nylon, with a padded “AeroSleeve” Pro laptop sleeve with breathable  window that helps extend the life of the all important battery of your computer laptop.  A one-touch, lightweight aluminum dual-trolley handle system and deluxe comfort grip that dampens vibrations.  Interior organization including a fan-file divider and peripheral pockets for tricot-lined electronic devices, business cards and USB flash drive pockets, pen loops and a key fob.  Exterior organization, important on any expandable luggage, was also well thought out including a quick access pocket with electronic-friendly magnetic closure and two zippered corner pockets. Finally with the lockable YKK racquet coil zippers David knows you have a bag you can depend on!

Another great series of business cases entering the market that David is very excited about is a new collection from TravelPro called Executive Pro.  Executive Pro bags have many of the great features listed above at a great price point and David predicts it too will be a great seller in the near future!!!

Irv’s Luggage has been in business since 1947 and continues to serve the needs of the growing population of road warriors throughout the world.  Check out David’s favorites and the other great selection of men’s and women’s briefcases today!!!
