Wonderful, lovely people of style and beauty can you please help me in my search for a work backpack that can take a smallish laptop and someA4 books. Trying to find a comfy, well made one for less than £100. Any recommendations would be very gratefully received smile

I got 'Estarer Woman Black Laptop Backpack' off Amazon. Its really good quality and have used it for 3 years for Uni..fits my chromebook and A4 pads and books. It has quite a few inside pockets and have had loads of compliments. £32.99 reduced from about £75..just checked and its still available. Sorry i cant attach link..dont know how x

I’ve had one of these for years- great laptop space, lots of pockets and very comfy and sturdy. I actually have a floral one which I love but there are also lots of plain colours. The only slightly less mature aspect is the name “hot Style” grin but you could pick the label off. here

I prefer men's.

Have a look at Sandqvist, they’re lovely:

I bought this a couple of weeks ago, direct from Samsonite - I got it in the sale so it was about £85 I think, but it appears to be £109 now. You might get it for less on Luggage Store. I spent ages searching for something professional and I get a lot of compliments on it at work;

It's really smart, very well made, feels and looks expensive, and expands too. Although not a bloody pen holder in sight, so I bought one of those backpack organisers which was perfect.

Wenger or Targus offer proper protection. They have city/urban ranges these day that are more stylish than they used to be. My wenger backpack is ten years old.

Kipling Micah backpack I have this and love it. It's really comfortable and great for laptop lugging about. Kipling have some other good backpacks but the 'city' has flimsy straps so wouldn't recommend that.

I like this.

Via! I swear my phone hates me!

Not sure the straps look great after looking at the back photo.

I have a Patagonia Atom backpack which is very comfortable

I have a Knomo one which I still love about 3 years later. It's more than your £100 budget, but I saw in M&S the other day that they're doing a copy of it for £45

Roka do lovely, reasonably priced bags rokalondon.com/ . I've got this one, which fits everything and was £59.95

Rains backpack. Comfy and water resistant

Another vote for Sandqvist! I have the Stig style one and it’s great for schlepping around all my work crap.

I've got one of these and am really happy with it. Had a few compliments as well:

I travel about with work a lot via train I use an antler urbanite back pack and cant recommended it enough! Will post a link shortly

Would you possibly consider a briefcase or laptop bag? A black leather (or faux) briefcase looks quite classy/expensive in my opinion - you can carry it with the handle or with a shoulder strap. Suits corporate attire very well.

Antler urbanite (sorry can't do pic). Would recommend this brand for anythig
