Pelican ProGear U100 Urban Elite Laptop Backpack, $299.95

For long-term protective care, nothing beats this ruggedized backpack. You place your business notebook (from 15-inch to 17-inch) inside a crushproof compartment. Up front, there’s an impact-resistant slot for a tablet. The backpack is waterproof to three feet, has a flip-open top-loader that is TSA-approved (so you don’t have to remove the laptop), and a water bottle holder.
