Your laptop is your workspace, your finances, and every form of entertainment you could imagine all stored conveniently in a metal rectangle that you admittedly toss onto the desk a bit too haphazardly. Maybe you've even dropped it off your bed before on a particularly lazy afternoon. Who can say?
A laptop case won't prevent all of your couch potato tendencies from breaking the good stuff inside but it can make it all a little less likely. They're great for keeping your laptop safe and scratch-free in big backpacks, or for carrying under your arm from meeting to meeting. It's high time you invested in one that shows up to do its job, so that you can do yours.
Here, we rounded up 14 of the best laptop cases out there right now, from clear hard cases to luxe leather portfolios. Whether you need it to assist you in your work from home endeavors (desk > sitting on couch > laying on couch) or to get you from Important Meeting to Important Meeting, there's a best case match out there—well, right here—for you.
Insulated Thermal Capsule Tablet & Laptop Sleeve
If you're often lugging your computer outside, this Phoozy case protects it against all elements—especially extreme temperatures. The thermal barrier reflects heat and keeps your battery working in even freezing cold weather. It's also water-resistant and can withstand drops up to five feet.
Laptop Carry Sleeve
If you're trying to improve your laptop posture (aren't we all??), this Moft carry case folds right up into one. Moft takes all of its design cues from origami, and the perfectly placed folds on this laptop sleeve show that attention to detail. It'll prop up your laptop to be at a better viewing angle while you work.
If it's something sleek and simple you're after, Cuyana's tech carryall fits a 13-inch laptop snuggly. The two shallow pockets in the front are just big enough to hold your charger and phone.
We love Rains for all of the stuff it makes to protect us when it, ahem, rains. Backpacks, rain jackets, and, yes, laptop cases. This simple zip-up black one is water-repellent making it essentially a form of insurance for when you forget an umbrella.
Smythson's leather accessories are a real upgrade in the world but you'd be hard-pressed to find a better laptop case option when it's your time to spend. It fits a 13-inch laptop and comes in a classic black or bright blue.
Hardshell Dot Case
For the extra clumsy or superbly cautious, Incase makes a hardshell case that protects your laptop all the time. This one is fit for a Macbook Pro 14", but there are options for all size computers.
The MacBook 13" Portfolio
This von Holzhausen portfolio case is an ideal option for work. It looks professional, first of all, and its magnetic flap closure makes it easy to get your laptop into and out of as you go to and from meetings.
Puffy Laptop Sleeve
For something less business and more party, Baggu's puffy laptop sleeve fits tech up to 16 inches. It's made with a ripstop nylon and puffy, protective outside.
Leatherology makes all sorts of tech accessories that feel high-end without costing an arm and a leg. This MacBook sleeve has three sizes for your own size laptop (13, 14, and 15/16) with six classic leather colors. You can get your initials debossed or hand-painted—also a great idea for giving as a gift.
Subterra Laptop Sleeve
Thule's 13-inch laptop sleeve is padded and therefore extra protective against any accidental slips or falls. The outside is water-resistant and the front has an extra zip pocket for keeping your charger.
Nassau Laptop Portfolio
Tumi's laptop portfolio was meant to live and breathe in a C-Suite and if you work in one, or would like to appear as though you do, this case is on brand. It's made of a sleek leather with storage for pens, paper, chargers, and your phone.
Native Union's Stow case fits a 16-inch MacBook inside of its quilted interior. The alternative textile outer gives the whole thing some texture so it doesn't just look like a gray rectangle. Plus, that texture change isn't just aesthetic: you can also slip small things into that outer sleeve.
Sometimes you just need a regular case that does the job it came here to do. This $20 one on Amazon does just that: It fits a MacBook Air 13 inch and comes with a matching case for storing pens, chargers, and snacks.
Lite Laptop Sleeve
For a simple, softshell laptop case, this 14-inch Bellroy one is a solid overall pick. It's lightweight but still has some protective padding with a ripstop fabric outer.
