12" Laptop Cases and Bags
If a laptop case or bag is too big, your laptop will move about which can cause damage, the opposite of what your case should do. Ideally, you need a case that is snug about your computer, for optimum protection. 12" laptop cases and bags are perfect for your smaller bits of kit.
Available in a range of different styles and colours with various features, you will be sure to find a case or bag that that you will love.
Sleeve cases have more aesthetic appeal than they do protective qualities. They are convenient as you just have to slide your phone in and out of the sleeve. You will get some level of water resistance from these cases, more so if they are made out of neoprene which is a material often found in diving suits. They come in many colours and quirky designs, often featuring a pattern or picture.
Shoulder and messenger bags
Perhaps the standard among laptop bags, a shoulder bag , usually made from thick canvas and padded on the inside, has a single strap that either hangs on one shoulder or across the torso. These often feature a front pocket for the charger and the like.
Messenger bags are similar, but usually bigger, with a flap rather than a zip about the side. These look best and even luxurious in leather and can often fit things other than your laptop and accessories. The material will change the level of protection offered.
A backpack will help spread the weight over your torso, saving you from an aching shoulder. These often have extra pockets and space for other items. Available in a wide variety of colours and patterns, you can make these a fashion item as well as a practical one.
If made of hard plastic, leather or even plastic a briefcase can offer the best level of protection. Many will have reinforced corners to protect against drop damage as well as inner straps to hold your laptop in place. Some will have the option to attach a strap, making them very similar to shoulder bags.
