Young professionals often find they need take their laptops with them when they travel. Having a rolling laptop bag is one way to ease the load of carrying everything to the airport and then to the hotel. Trying to juggle luggage and all of your other items just gets to be a real hassle sometimes.
Being able to protect your laptop and carry the accessories you need in a bag that rolls along with you can be a real help. Some of the bags are even designed to hold a few clothes if your trip is just an overnight event. Having a rolling bag helps a young professional if they have to park a long distance away from the office, as well. Most wheeled bags are suitable for men as well as women, so I have a selection to suit both.

These wheeled laptop bags are also great for the college student, especially on a large campus. If you have to go from one side of the campus to the other in between classes, it will be easier if you can put books and laptop in a roller, instead of on your back. It takes the strain off of the shoulders from having to carry your laptop and juggle the books too.
Organized roughly from affordable to expensive.
Carry It Or Roll It
Kensington – a longtime favorite with my audience. Fits a 15.4 inch laptop
The multi-function of this laptop bag on wheels is a nice choice. Pull the handle up and you can roll it where you need to go. Need to just grab your bag and take it with you? No problem, just push the ergonomically designed handle down and grasp the other handles. By the way those carrying handles lock magnetically which is a nice feature.
The laptop compartment is quilted and also has a bottom cushion which provides good protection for your computer. It also has an external pocket to keep important documents like your airline ticket and other essentials in a place that is easy to access them.
Perfect for laptops that are 15.4 inches or smaller.
A Great Overnighter Rolling Laptop Bag
Samsonite Wheeled Backpack – (comes in black too)
This rolling laptop bag is perfect for the person whose job requires overnight business trips. The padded laptop compartment has a velcro closure and a pocket for important files or documents. It also features an organizer that zips to keep items in place. A nice deep section to take a change of clothes and your toiletries along on the trip and an external front pocket to place a few other items that you might need a quick access to.
For Larger Laptops And Notebooks
Targus Metro Roller Laptop Case for 16-Inch Laptop
A really nice laptop bag on wheels for the larger laptops and notebooks. The telescoping handle has three positions for ease in pulling the bag. A workstation that zips down and provides a place to keep pens, business cards, media and other items that you need to perform your work. A padded shoulder strap is provided for the times that you just want to carry your bag and the strap is detachable if you want to just carry the bag with the small handle. Most major airlines will allow this rolling laptop bag as a carry on which is really nice!
Accommodates laptops up to 16 inches.
I’ve found you wheeled laptop cases: from light for the office, to bulky and able to store you paperwork and overnight cloths.
Rolling laptop bags are a must for people carrying a laptop around daily. I mean really, carrying 3 pounds or more on your back is just not a good idea. Women and men would be wise to use wheeled luggage for their laptop, though perhaps not this pink one for the men. On this page you will find rolling laptop backpacks in more sedate gender-neutral colors as well as cute feminine ones.
Leather Bag For Your Laptop
McKleinUSA GLEN ELLYN Black Leather Detachable-Wheeled Women’s Case
In my opinion this rolling bag has it all! Beautiful leather exterior with ticket pockets in the front and back. A removable sleeve for extra protection for your computer from scratching in the padded compartment. A compartment in the front works as an organizer with a mesh compartment, an open pocket and a zippered pocket. It also has an accessory pouch that is removable along with a padded, adjustable shoulder strap that can also be removed from the bag.
It is also classified as checkpoint friendly for the airlines.
Available in loads of colors: pink, blue, green, red, brown, tan, and black and will protect computers up to 15.6 inches.
Detachable Wheels Laptop Case
McKleinUSA Black Notebook Roller
The exterior is a luscious full-grain cashmere Napa leather that just exudes success, in my opinion. The wheels and handle can be detached from the bag if you wish to carry your bag on a daily basis. A front pocket that zips to hold miscellaneous items. Two front compartments to hold business cards, accessories and media. Another compartment is divided for files and documents. The back compartment is for the laptop and padded for extra protection.
Large bag will hold a 17 inch laptop computer.

In real leather like you would expect from McKlein, this bag can be wheeled as well as carried.
Like with other McKlein Bags, the wheels and handle are (in one piece) detachable.
Unfortunately the site doesn’t mention what size laptops will fit in this bag, however users report that a 15 inch laptop fits.
To give an idea of the size: it will fit UNDER the chair in an airplane.

What size laptop bag do you need?
Check the size of your laptop by measuring it diagonally (from upper right to lower left, for instance). The length of the diagonal in inches is an international measure for screen size.
