The Everlane Form Bag looks nothing like a standard laptop bag, but it is big enough to hold a small computer or tablet (with room to spare).
If you want to carry your laptop undetected, try the Everlane Form Bag ($235). It’s more of a sleek work satchel than a standard laptop bag. The shape is unique enough to make this bag a bit of a stylish conversation piece, elevating an outfit instead of dragging it down.
Made of 100% Italian leather, the Form Bag contains an interior pocket and fits a 13-inch laptop while still allowing the magnetic closure to secure shut. The straps are adjustable to allow for a crossbody or shoulder bag fit.
“I like that I can wear the Form Bag across my body for better weight distribution,” writes Insider Picks’ director of content strategy Ellen Hoffman.
“In an effort to reduce back strain while riding the ever-more-crowded New York City subways, I’ve stopped hauling big purses to work that are packed with a lot of extra junk I don’t need. (I mean, really, how often do I need access to five slightly differently colored lipsticks?). Helping me in this effort over the last year has been Everlane’s Form Bag, which is the perfect medium size for all the essentials, including my 13-inch MacBook Pro.”
After using it for a year, Hoffman says the Form Bag is still in great condition; the leather has softened a bit with age, and at least in her experience, it is largely resistant to scratches. Other reviewers complain the leather scratches easily.
The Form Bag currently comes in six colors, including black, cognac, dark green, and navy, and it has a nearly perfect rating after more than 565 Everlane customer reviews.
Pros: Stylish, convertible straps, structured, multiple unique colors
Cons: Expensive, not suitable for laptops larger than 13 inches, some reviewers complain the leather scratches easily
