For most women, buying a new bag is inexplicably exciting! There are so many options to browse through, it's easy to get caught up in brand or style and forget about the things that make a bag practical.

Laptops, much like bags, come in a variety of sizes. By far the most common question we get from Career Bags customers is how to make sure the bag they want will fit their computer. The first step is to figure out how large your screen size is. Laptop computers, much like televisions, are measured diagonally across the screen. Once you determine how large your computer is, finding the right sized bag is easy. We try to provide as much information about each of our products as possible to make choosing the right bag easy. On Careerbags.com, we allow you to search by screen size to make choosing a bag to fit your laptop almost fool-proof!
You might think of laptop bags as being pretty uniform, but they actually come in several different types. It's important to consider what you'll be using this bag for most often when deciding which type to choose. For example, if you're an avid business traveler, a rolling laptop bag is the best way
to simplify your trip through the airport. If you'll be mostly using this bag in an office setting, simple leather laptop tote is perfect for professional environments. If you're a student who will be lugging your computer around campus, a laptop backpack will help keep strain off your back and shoulders!
Like any other type of bag, laptop bags come in a variety of fabrics and materials. Leathers are
usually the most popular, but we also carry bags in suede, tweed, nylon, faux leather, and even eco-friendly fabrics. One of our most unique brands, Urban Junket, makes all their bags out of recycled water bottles! The result is a fun, glossy, and lightweight style that is different than any bag you'll see in stores! Choose a material that works for your career, your personal style, and your lifestyle!
One of our main goals at Career Bags is to provide you with bags that match both your personal style and your career needs.
