Laptops are expensive, and if you’re worried about drops, scuffs, and spills, a laptop sleeve will give you an extra layer of protection between your thousand-dollar machine and the cold, hard ground. We researched and tested dozens of laptop sleeves to find nine in a variety of styles that will suit you regardless of whether you want something simple or refined, or with hardcore protection.
But before you buy a laptop sleeve, consider if you actually need one. Most backpacks, messenger bags, and briefcases already have a protective slot for your laptop. If you carry your laptop outside of a bag, a laptop sleeve might be what you need—but if you’re carrying a backpack anyway, it might not.
