Miller Convertible Shoulder Bag
The Miller Convertible Shoulder Bag is bold, coming in a bright red or black color with Tory Burchs signature double-T on the front as brass hardware. Dont be fooled by its smaller size: It can fit an 11-inch laptop and has three interior card pockets. Wear it as a shoulder bag or remove the straps to carry it as a clutch.
Fleming Convertible Shoulder Bag
This classy fold-over bag has it all in the details. It comes in seven rich colors, so it can be your little black purse or your bright red statement bag. Thanks to the adjustable gold chain strap, you can wear it as a crossbody or a shoulder bag, so its easy to keep out of the way while youre shopping, running errands or attending an event.
Traditional Laptop Tote Bags
The Dagne Dover Daily Tote was the largest bag we tested in this round, making it impractical to carry on a commute or store at a desk. The vegan leather looked unattractive on such a large bag, the zipper was clunky, and the straps were too thin to be comfortable.
The Duluth Trading Co. Lifetime Leather Tote was heavy, thick, and uncomfortable to carry. The leather is treated with oil, which darkens when wet and takes forever to dry. And the zipper doesnt offer an airtight seal to protect delicate electronics from water damage.
Featuring a structured design and weighing 3 pounds, the Dagne Dover Signature Tote is the heaviest bag we tested. The carry handles are rope shaped, not flat like those of most bags, and in our tests they frequently fell off the shoulders of our commuters. On top of that, our panelists thought the bags weight, rigid design, and thick, sharp edges made for a poor combination during commutes on a crowded subway train.
The Lo & Sons Seville Tote is the second most expensive bag we tested this round. Its also heavy , and the stuffed laptop compartment is hard to secure. The bag didnt keep out liquids during our spill tests, which was disappointing for such a pricey accessory.

Celine Mini Luggage Bag
The Celine Mini Luggage tote is a beautiful structured bag that fits so much inside! One of the first designer handbags I ever purchased, the Celine Luggage bag has a soft spot in my heart! Its perfect for work or travel and fits so much. I have an IGTV videoon how I pack my Celine Mini Luggage for work and what fits inside here! This bag comes in drummed or smooth calfskin. I own the smooth calfskin in both the Mini and the Nano sizes it does scratch more than the drummed leather but its supposed to hold its shape better over time. The only cons with the Mini Luggage is that its quite heavy and doesnt have a shoulder strap, but overall its a great Celine laptop bag.

How We Picked And Tested
We read style blogs, bag forums, and online reviews, and we consulted our co-workers about what makes a great laptop tote. Then we compiled a list of dozens of laptop tote bags that had excellent reviews, and we noted the price of each bag, its availability across retailers, third-party reviews, the size, and the materials used. We also listed each bags notable features, such as zippered compartments, a dedicated laptop pocket, a crossbody strap, color options, and warranty coverage. Then we divided the laptop bags into five categories based on their overall design and price: open top tote bags, budget tote bags , convertible bags, traditional totes, and travel laptop tote bags.
We narrowed the pool based on overall features, and we then selected a wide mix of bags for testing, from open-top and convertible bags to traditional and travel totes. For each bag, we evaluated overall quality, durability of the laptop compartments , carrying comfort, weight, and water resistance. We also had Wirecutter staffers commute with the semifinalists and then recommend their favorites.
