Back-to-School Laptop Bags, Backpacks and Briefcases


Piel Leather Ladies Laptop Tote

Anyone still in school for one reason or another is dreadfully aware that it starts again soon. The end of August means the end of summer and back to school. We already talked a little this month about the many fine pens that Executive Essentials has to make going back to school less tedious and more fun. Not only did we point out some great writing instruments from highly respected brands, but we also pointed out a few pens under $50, which makes going back to school really affordable. You’re welcome.


Having the best pen at the start of the year is important, but you’re going to need something to carry it and everything else around with you. Depending on your school and what your studying will determine what type of backpacklaptop bag or briefcase you will need. Executive Essentials has a plethora of styles and types to choose from. So just sit back, relax and let us take you on a magical journey through the land of back-to-school bags.


Kenneth Cole Leather Laptop Briefcase


Let’s just start with the Piel Leather Ladies Laptop Tote. This is a sharp dressed, yet casual feel bag with a simple task – keep the laptop safe! Measuring in at 16.5″ x 12.5″ x 6.5″, this bag has room to spare after you’ve snugged up your travel electronics. Weighing only 3 lbs, this full grain leather satchel comes in a wide array of colors and keeps its contents safe. The top zip entry leads to a spacious compartment, including CD sleeves and an organizer for PDA, pens and a cell phone. All of this with a sturdy adjustable strap. Style and function rolled into one so you can make a statement on those first days of school.

Kenneth Cole knows a few things about cases of all kinds so it should come as no surprise to find their name on this ‘must have back-to-school bag’ list. A favorite is the Leather Show Business Flapover Computer Case – or the Computer Commuter Case. A strong handle is the top focus of this full grain cowhide leather briefcase. It is outfitted with a fully lined double gusset construction, a front pocket organizer that can hold a variety of business essentials. The padded laptop compartment accommodates laptops with up to a 15.4” screen and the rear exterior pocket has a Velcro closure for quick and easy entry. To round it all out, the strap is adjustable to a variety of sizes. Take a look!


Korchmar Briefcase


If you’re looking for something a bit more decadent, you might want to try the Korchmar Adventure Collection Leather Compact Laptop Briefcase. This unique case is made of antique leather and comes with a 5-year limited warranty. It has a single compartment with a separate hanging padded computer section to keep the electronics safe. The multiple interior pockets expand for a variety of sizes to fit PDAs, cell phones, and computer power systems. The exterior flap has enough room for 8.5 x 11” files. The entire bag is decked out in antique brass hardware and an adjustable shoulder strap. Calling Indiana Jones!


Hadaki On The Run Laptop Case


If you’re looking for casual and fun, then you want to check out the Hadaki On the Run Laptop Case. This is a small case made just for that precious laptop in your life. This dedicated bag is thickly padded to comfortably cradle any 15.4” laptop. The flap to the main compartment is magnetic making opening and closing a breeze and also assures that the lid is sealed without having to double check. A small zippered pocket under the flap can fit small, practical items like USB thumb drives, headphones, gum as well as pens and pencils.

Once again, this is just a small sample of the amazing laptop bags and briefcases that are available in the Executive Essentials online catalog. Take a look around and see if you can find the bag that will make your back-to-school adventures worthwhile and fun.
