Best Overall Gaming Backpack

The Razer Rogue is everything you could ever want for a laptop backpack: full of features including scratch resistant, water proof coating, secure zipping and lots of extra pockets. If you have a mighty need for a very good backpack for your 15.6″ laptop, look no further than the Razer Rogue.

Pros:
  • Very sturdy
  • Sratch and water resistant
  • Comfortable design
Cons:
  • Interior feels a bit slippery
  • Straps are quite too thick

The Razer Rogue is a premium laptop backpack that will spoil you when it comes to traveling with your trusty notebook. First of all, the exterior is water and damage-resistant – making it reliable for when you are traveling often and even go to natural habitats like the forest or the savannah (we’re not even kidding). This also helps keeping the backpack looking fresh as if you bought it yesterday. The bag is specially tailored for the Razer Blade 15 but you can fit in any similar 15.6″ laptop in it.

The straps are comfortable and the back is made of breathable mesh to make it comfortable as you venture. To ensure the safety of the laptop even if you drop the bag, the interior is coated with protective TPU material that will absorb shock and other forms of hard contact. If these aren’t enough to entice you, then you may as well pay for something more expensive because for a laptop to carry these features, the price for the Razer Rogue is well worth it.

Best Value Gaming Laptop Backpack

If you do not need a high-profile bag with so many premium features, we recommend the Asenlin Laptop Backpack: an affordable yet high-valued backpack that carry the essentials to keep your laptop safe while also retaining a fashionable design.

Pros:
  • Very affordable
  • Convenient USB ports
  • Hip design
Cons:
  • Not very scratch resistant
  • Mesh is a bit too thin

The Asenlin Laptop Backpack is much more affordable than the likes of Lenovo, SteelSeries or Razer. You may think it is just another generic bag but we put the Asenlin on this list for good reasons.

The laptop backpack is quite light even if you carry a lot of stuff with you. Also, the overall design is quite hip and cool – perfect for a tech wiz or a gamer. There are also some small pockets that include USB ports, a phone holder and the main free space. But, keep in mind that while the exterior is water-resistant, the material is not scratch-proof. Overall, this is a very good budget backpack that can carry up to a maximum laptop size of 15.6″.

Best Large Gaming Laptop Backpack

The Everki Titan is built for those that carry big mean laptops that range to a maximum of 18.4″. If you need to bring your large laptop along with other stuff with you everywhere, the Everki Titan is a good gargantuan choice.

Pros:
  • Very cheap
  • Amazing mic quality
  • Good surround sound
Cons:
  • Fragile build
  • Thin wire

The Everki Titan lives up to its name as it carries a lot of stuff while keeping your essential behemoth laptop safe. Specifically made for the likes of the Acer Predator, the Everki Titan is a must-buy for when your laptop has a max size of 18.4″. The interiors are very soft to the touch while the exterior is tough, resulting in a shock-proof bag that is alright when dropped. It is also meant for traveling so if you go through checkpoints, this is easy to open up to 180 degrees.

While it carries a large laptop, the Everki Titan also accommodates for tablets too, thanks to a dedicated slot inside. And even if you carry a lot up to 40 lbs, having the Titan on your back does not feel too bothersome since it has a 5-point balance strap system.

Honestly, you will not find any better large laptop backpack than the Everki Titan.

Strongest Laptop Backpack

When it comes to very long trips and you care about your laptop a lot, we highly recommend the Lenovo Legion Armored above all else. Made like a soft type of tank, the Lenovo Legion Armored will always guarantee the safety of everything inside your bag – even if it means tossing it in a room.

Pros:
  • Ergonomic
  • Heavy-duty
  • Awesome protective exterior
Cons:
  • Very expensive
  • Not too checkpoint-friendly
  • No phone/tablet slot

The Lenovo Legion Armored is comprised of 3 different sections with 16 compartments. And while it looks extremely heavy-duty, the ergonomics are quite amazing. The best thing about this laptop backpack is that while it does look large and something that Norman Reedus would carry in Death Stranding, it feels good to wear on the back and even over the shoulder. Thanks to its protective coating, you will not ever need to cover your bag with an umbrella during hot summer days or the rainy spring seasons. It lasts very long. Keep in mind that this carries up to 17″ of a laptop besides the Legion notebook series. Keep in mind about the price though – it is like the equivalent of a titanium armored truck.

Largest Storage

When you need lots of pockets – and I mean A LOT of them – you will need to get the Targus Steelseries Gaming Backpack. It is designed for the gamers – whether PC or console – as there are so many different slots to put in specific peripherals. It is an OCD’s delight.

Pros:
  • So many pockets
  • Ergonomic handling
  • Reasonable price
Cons:
  • Not that scratch-resistant
  • May still need to cover during rains

The Targus Steelseries Gaming Backpack is a master when it comes to pockets all-around from the exterior and way down into the interior. While it is not the strongest exterior, it sure does carry around a very good ergonomic design. The padding is flexible so that means even if you have lots of bulky items inside the bag, you will not ever feel like carrying around a sack of assorted large fruits and vegetables. Also, there are so many slots inside the bag that we couldn’t even count the total – because everytime we do, another one shows up like a Kinder Surprise. Need to have separate pockets for the 17″ laptop, charger, mouse, extra keyboard, mousepad and headset? No problem. Do you have a Nintendo Switch with you? It has a slot in there. Oh, you also want to store your tablet and phone? They have premade pockets too!

So if you are into lots of segregation, the Targus Steelseries Gaming Backpack is the most ideal choice out there.

What We Would Buy

Laptop backpacks have come a long way and now there are bags dedicated to bringing your gaming peripherals with guaranteed safety. Of course, with all that said, we vote the Razer Rogue as the best of the bunch. You won’t get a better price for its balance of robust design and number of features. Of course, there is always the Asenlin Laptop Backpack if you ever need something more budgeted – and hey, it has some convenient USB ports too. But if you are carrying around a large laptop up to 18.4″, the Everki Titan suits best. Meanwhile, when it comes to the best protection against the harmful and unpredictable nature, the Lenovo Legion Armored laptop backpack is the best to do it. And lastly, the Targus Steelseries Gaming Backpack is the primer of pockets as it contains lots of slots of you-name-it for your PC and console needs.
