How to Choose the Perfect Laptop Bag | Rise of Rosa

What should you look out for when shopping for a new laptop bag? In this blog post, I'm going to discuss some of these important features.

Whether you're heading to the office or university or going on a trip, a comfortable and safe bag for your laptop and other items is important.

With a wide range of choices in types, sizes, materials and prices, it can be difficult to choose the perfect bag to suit your style and needs.

For example, have you thought about the convenience of extra compartments in a bag? Let's take a look at other important features to look out for!

Laptop Bag Size

Follow these steps to check if your laptop will fit in a laptop compartment:

  • Most laptops and tablets have dimensions in inches, where 1 inch equals 2.54 cm.
  • Measure the diagonal length of your laptop from bottom left to top right with a ruler. Remember that the laptop size in inches refers only to the screen size, without the edge of the laptop.
  • To check if your laptop will fit in the bag, measure the entire laptop.
  • Refer to the table below for screen size in inches, length, height and diagonal length in centimeters.
  • If your laptop falls between two sizes, choose the larger size so that it fits well in the laptop compartment.
size in inches  L x H laptop screen diagonal screen size
13,3 29,4 x 16,6 cm 33,8
14 31,0 x 17,4 cm 35,6
15,6 34,5 x 19,4 cm 39,6
17,3 38,3 x 21,5 cm 43,9


Maximum allowed dimensions per airline

When travelling, you may carry your laptop in your handbag on the plane.  Always check the maximum dimensions of the laptop bag per airline, as they may vary. All dimensions given are in centimeters and include handles, wheels and side pockets.

 Airline Sizes
KLM 40 x 30 x 15
Transavia 40 x 30 x 20
TuiFly 40 x 30 x 20
Ryanair 40 x 20 x 25
Corendon 55 x 40 x 25
Easyjet 45 x 36 x 20


The right material

When choosing a laptop bag, look at the materials available and their qualities. A laptop bag should be suitable for everyday use.

Leather bags are durable and stylish. A well-maintained leather bag can be an investment that will last for years. On the other hand, nylon and polyester bags are lighter and cheaper, but less durable.

Decide what is most important to you - durability, weight or style - when choosing the material for your laptop bag.

Material  Pros Cons
Leather Durable, Timeless, Sturdy, Authentic Less Light weighted, Pricing, Care
Synthetic Care, Pricing, Impermeable Wear-sensitive, Durability, Not Eco-friendly


Type of Bag

When you think of laptop bags, you don't just think of laptop shoulder bags but also laptop shoppers. The leather shoppers from Rise of Rosa are excellent for a day at work, school or a day shopping in town.
If you are looking for a business and professional look, you can go for a classic laptop bag which you can carry in your hand or over your shoulder, thanks to the handles and detachable and adjustable shoulder strap.

Choose a style that suits your personal taste and the occasion you will use the bag for.

Colour of your laptop bag

Laptop bags are a long-term investment. It is therefore important that the colour of the bag matches your wardrobe and style.

Neutral or dark colours are perfect in a professional environment. A classic black laptop bag is chic and reflects professionalism, while a brown or cognac shoulder bag offers a sophisticated business look that combines beautifully with different colours.

Extra Compartments

It is very practical if a laptop bag has extra compartments to store accessories such as phones, pens, notebooks and chargers. These extra compartments can help keep all your essentials organized. Make sure the laptop compartment is padded to protect your laptop while on the go.


Laptop bags come in different price ranges. They are available from around  € 50 for a synthetic bag to thousands of euros for a designer bag.

For example, a leather laptop bag from Rise of Rosa is available between € 189.95 and € 259.95. It is important to find a balance between affordability and the quality you want.

Keep in mind that investing in a durable bag that will last for years can be a better choice than going for a cheaper alternative that won't last as long and needs to be replaced often.
