Finally, a laptop bag that doesn’t make me look like an extra from The IT Crowd. 

It’s often the way – you either sacrifice the safety of your laptop for a bag that is stylish, or you end up looking like a gimp with a square and bulky rucksack. Sure, your laptop might be safe, but your style credentials are certainly not!

London-based brand Knomo have a fantastic range of bags and cases for all your technology – from iPad cases to tote bags, there’s something for everyone.

Knomo-Troon-Messenger-BlackI’ve been using the Troon 13″ Messenger and have really loved it. It’s the perfect size for my Mac, a couple of notebooks (yes, I still use a pen and paper) and my wallet.

Priced at £95, the bag comes in black, blue or olive and features a flap with belt closure and extendable strap. Made from cotton canvas, the bag has an urban look but is still smart and durable. I took it out in the rain (oops!) and it faired well – keeping my Mac and notebook dry.

If you like (or need) something a little bit bigger, you should definitely check out the Falmouth 15″ Backpack. Priced at £119, the new release comes in either an olive or black colourway and has a really cool, yet classic look to it.
