Unlike other laptop totes, its base is minimally padded, allowing it to stand upright when packing.

The Best Waterproof Laptop Tote: RAINS Tote Bag Mini
The ideal laptop tote for all seasons (especially in rainy climates), the RAINS tote bag will give you peace of mind even in the wettest weather. Not only is it perfect as a laptop tote, but our team has used this bag for day trips, grocery shopping, and everything in between. It features a full-length coated zipper and a roomy main compartment with attachment rings inside for small items.
Our team appreciates that this laptop bag has extra long carrying straps (easy to slip over an arm) and a smooth, waterproof exterior that’s stylish and functional.

The Best Stylish Laptop Tote: Canvas Duck Bag Tote by Baggu
Baggu’s Canvas Duck Bag is a more straightforward design and comes without many of the bells & whistles of the other laptop totes we tried.

Even better, you can throw the whole bag into the washing machine for easy care.
What we love most about this tote is how stylish it looks and how easy it is to sling cross-body with the long, adjustable strap. It’s also conveniently roomy when you need to stash an extra layer or book.
