If you've graduated beyond backpacks but you're not yet ready for the mobile office, a messenger bag is the business-casual style of choice for laptop carriers.
Meant to be worn across the body, these bags -- many in the "flap" style with a fold-over flap protecting the insides -- are universally sturdy, and most can be carried by men or women. They're not as formal as a leather briefcase, but definitely a step up from a backpack, perfect for a casual office environment.
The classic messenger bag is nylon, brightly colored, and designed for an urban environment. Today this style of bag has been re-created in a range of looks, from black leather to fun, feminine florals. Swiss Army laptop bags are a great choice for durability and understated style.
