Is it safe to pack your laptop in your suitcase?
It’s not recommended to pack a laptop in your suitcase as checked luggage receives rough handling in transit. You should also check the relevant airline and country regulations, as some won’t allow electronics in checked bags.
Your suitcase will endure the rough and tumble of conveyor belts, trucks and bumpy flights, piled up among hundreds of other heavy bags. This makes the chance of damage more likely. If you’re handling your own suitcase on another mode of transport, make sure the laptop is surrounded with soft materials or in a padded laptop sleeve such as The North Face flyweight laptop sleeve which provides safe and secure storage in a lightweight pouch.
What is the best laptop backpack?
When looking for the ideal backpack for travel you should consider your specific journey. What conditions will you be travelling in? Also, consider the size of your laptop and how much space you need for other things.
To choose the right laptop bag, start by checking that the size of the padded section can accommodate your laptop. Next, think about what else you’ll be taking and how much extra space you’ll need in secondary compartments. You’ll want comfortable straps for any journey, but longer treks with heavier bags will benefit from additional strapping at the chest and waist. The North Face Borealis Classic Backpack is a tried and tested all-rounder, with removable chest and hip straps adding versatility for a variety of trips.
