A zipper at the top ensures your items remain secure, whether you're hitting the TSA line at the airport or running to catch the bus. Better yet, the interior compartment is padded to protect whatever tech you choose to carry, while multiple interior pockets allow for peak organization.

Deemed the "perfect size" bag by several reviewers, this medium satchel has a classic design that you're sure to use for years to come. The open top is convenient for quickly grabbing your things, while the side zip compartment will provide some extra security. It also comes with an optional crossbody strap, so you can go hands-free in a snap!

Complete with a handle strap and longer crossbody strap (both of which are removable), this convertible hobo bag is one you'll reach for on every occasion. According to the brand, it can fit up to the latest iPad models and it has both an interior zip pocket and exterior slip pocket, so you won't be endlessly digging for your keys despite its spacious size. Buyers also call out its zippered top closure that they love to prevent spills, along with the comfort of the straps: "Beautiful and great size. Water bottle fits easily. Has a zip top so spill-proof. Comfortable shoulder strap." We're sold.

Bring a little Barbie to your everyday wardrobe with this cute crossbody that packs a perfect punch of pink. And not only is it fashionable, it's also totally functional, as it's designed with a removable crossbody chain, a magnetic snap closure and an interior card pocket that will save you the need to stuff in a larger wallet.

Shoppers rave about the versatility of this color-blocked tote. One wrote, "I love how versatile it is. The colors match with basically every outfit. Also, I love the softness of the pebbled leather." They also noted its perfectly roomy interior.

Whether you're stepping out for your daily stroll or packing up for an overnight road trip, this sleek leather backpack offers plenty of space to carry everything you need. Buyers say they can fit their Kindles, water bottles and more, but note the clasp can be a bit tricky: "It perfectly fits my iPad and kindle. I can also fit a large water bottle if I put it in diagonally. The magnetic clasp can be a little finicky, but it holds tightly." We also love that it has adjustable shoulder straps to get your perfect fit.

This textured leather tote has all the space you need and more for your work day essentials. It's equipped with a padded laptop sleeve (so you don't have to worry about it jostling around during your commute) and there are several interior pockets to keep smaller must-haves organized.

I can carry everything I need for school and work in it while it still supports my shoulder."

Customers confirm that it's the ideal size for quick trips out: "I can fit my keys, smartphone and lip gloss in this bag," one writes, adding, "the adjustable shoulder strap is great, too!"

This ultra-luxe tote is wrapped in supple pebbled leather and lined in soft micro-suede, so it should feel as good as it looks. But most importantly, buyers say you can fill it up with your daily essentials and still have room to spare. According to the brand, it can fit up to a 13-inch laptop, along with an A4 binder and current models of the iPhone and iPad.
