Best tablet bags

by William Lobley |

Tablets are not just for watching Netflix, YouTube, scrolling Amazon deals and checking Twitter – though, they’re pretty darn good at that. Not just a plaything, tablets have proven themselves to be invaluable work tools due to their processing power, versatility, ease of use and importantly, their portability.

Portable is good, but you only have two hands and you've got to make sure you are protected – it’s a big world out there. A tablet bag is the answer.

A good tablet bag will solve your problems. A simple yet comfortable shoulder strap will free your hands, and your tablet will sit in a padded sleeve, protected until called upon. Not only will your tablet be carried, but all your extras too (necessary or otherwise) like cables, pens, phones, external battery pack, headphones, mints, cough sweets, tissues, and so on (and on, and on).

There are as many tablet bag options as there are tablets. To save you some time, we’ve brought together the best tablet bags the market has to offer.

We’ve also included a solution for the tablet-using child, so you no longer have to stare anxiously at your five-year-old as they precariously and clumsily handle your tablet at the top of the stairs.
