Whether you are packing up to head into the office everyday, setting off on a work trip or just popping down the street to a coffee shop with your computer, you are probably wondering what’s the best laptop backpack? As modern devices get smaller and more advanced (and also more expensive), you’ll want a backpack that’s durable, comfortable, waterproof, and easy to use. Your bag should protect your device from the elements, and any bumps or bruises that may come along the way.

It can be hard these days to find laptop backpacks that fit larger devices. We believe that all laptops are equally important and our bags offer roomier sleeves to fit any size. 

At North St, we specialize in making the best laptop backpacks that we can. Here are our recommendations:

Belmont Backpack

One of our most popular bags, the Belmont makes a great laptop backpack. Cnet named it a “Best Laptop Backpack for 2024” It features an easy access main compartment through a flap and drawstring closure. This method is both easy to use, and keeps the rain out. We use waterproof EPX Sailcloth for the lining to keep the inner contents dry. The liner features a built-in laptop sleeve which is 11” wide and 1” thick. That’s enough space for most larger sized laptops. It’s also a great spot to stash books, papers or other items you want to keep safe.

The Belmont also works well as a travel backpack, hiking bag, or daypack for any adventure. Pack it up and use it for weekend getaways, day hikes

The Fit:

The bag is shorter and narrower, making it great for folks with smaller frames.

The Details:

  • Fits 16” and many 17” laptops
  • Waterproof drop liner
  • 22L of Capacity
  • Made in-house by our expert production team

Bonus features:

  • Retro reflector on the flap for added visibility at night.
  • Easy access side pockets for a water bottle, bike lock or other small items

Don’t forget your accessories, charging cables and peripherals! The Belmont also has inner velcro rows so you can add modular pocket organization.

What folks are saying:
