Don’t Carry Your Laptop, Roll It!

Are you Tech savvy? Do you have a laptop and take it with you everywhere you go? Are you still trying to make do with a traditional laptop case — carrying your unit around by hand? Have you ever thought what would happen to your computer if you dropped it? People who really depend on their laptop have made the switch to a rolling computer backpack —
Rolling Backpack
A major manufacturer and distributor of rolling computer backpacks is High Sierra. Let me describe one of their models to you: the High Sierra 20-Inch Drop Bottom Wheeled Duffel. The regular price of these rolling computer backpacks are from $51- $119.99. These rolling backpacks are available in three different color schemes: Black, Graphite/Titanium/Spring, and Vapor Blue/Alloy Blue/Spring.

Three Bags in One

This rolling computer backpack is actually three bags in one: you can use it as a wheeled upright, a duffel bag, or a standard backpack. It has a large main compartment with a front-load access area that expands an additional 2 inches when needed for extra capacity. It also has such features as a drop-bottom lower compartment, hold-down straps, two zippered mesh pockets, and corner-mounted, in-line skate-style wheels. I use it to carry my Halo rangefinder, from PointOptics, because it has a simple recessed telescopic handle with a very comfortable grip.

Meeting Airline Industry Size Requirements

Another model from High Sierra is their 21″ Wheeled Upright. Price range on these rolling computer backpacks is $132.95 — $240.00. You can purchase them in Black, Graphite/Titanium/Spring, and Vapor Blue/Alloy Blue/Spring. This item is more of a traditional wheeled carry-on bag, that gives over 2,000 cubic inches of room. These rolling computer backpacks also feature corner-mounted, in-line wheels and a recessed telescoping handle with a very comfortable grip. The large front pocket on these rolling computer backpacks are roomy enough to fit magazines and also comes with an organizer section that includes a cell phone pocket, pen slots, key fob and a general-purpose zippered pocket. This backpack also meets the current airline industry size requirements for carry-on luggage.

Another company that manufactures quality rolling backpacks is Solo. In particular, I recommend the Solo Business Case — Their Rolling Computer/Catalog Case. Normally priced around $250, you can often find this rolling computer backpack case on sale at a significant discount. This case features an interior section which is fully-lined, with a front compartment that zips down and has a 3-tier accordion fan file organizer. It also has a disk pocket, slots for your credit cards or business cards and pen/pencil loops. The removable padded computer pocket is capable of holding most laptop computers with up to a 16 inch screen. It is made of black ballistic nylon, and has a standard telescoping, locking handle with a very sturdy and comfortable carrying handle. The dimensions of this item are 15″ x 18.25″ x 11.75″ when empty. Solo alo rolling backpacks for kids.

Removable Briefcase

Finally, I would like to mention the McKlein Chicago 2 in 1 Black Detachable Wheeled Overnight with Removable Briefcase, model 83585. It is one of the most beautiful rolling computer backpack cases I have seen to date. This item is also a convertible product — you can use it as an overnighter bag or for storage of your laptop. The laptop briefcase itself is removable, and a large middle compartment will give you plenty of storage for all of your other essential paperwork. It also allows you to piggyback on the extended telescoping handles of other rolling cases and also includes a protective weatherproof cover.
