Your laptop and phone contain the contents of your life, so it’s only fair that you give your gadgets the outfit they deserve, right? You can finally let people judge your (Mac)book by its cover with any one of these gadget bags. They all combine fashion and function, thus allowing your computer, tablet, and smartphone to live more comfortably than ever before.

Moshi Helios Lite ($120)

Helios lite

Moshi offers some of the most fashionable gadget bags for women, and the Helios Lite is our favorite when it comes to style. Its slim, minimalist design looks both grown-up and professional. Despite its slim profile, the Helios Lite can easily hold everything you need to carry on an average day. Inside, there’s a fully padded compartment that can accommodate a for 13-inch laptop, along with a zippered pocket and other small pouches for holding your pens and nicknacks. The front has cute, buckled straps that snap to close the backpack with magnets. A small zippered pocket is on the front and there’s another one on the back for valuables. The front fabric boasts a water-repellent coating to protect it from the elements, too.


Stewart/Stand Zipper Wallet ($154)


If you’re concerned about identity theft, you’ve probably read a lot about RFID-blocking wallets. However, most of them are pretty ugly, so if you’re looking for one with style, we’d recommend checking out Stewart/Stand’s stainless steel wallets and clutches. The Zipper Wallet, in particular, has all the pockets you need for credit cards, a zipper pocket for coins and cash, as well as space for your phone. Everything inside is protected by woven stainless steel, which are silky smooth and feel like normal material alongside the leather. The steel is three times thinner than a sheet of paper, so it’s nice and flexible, but it can also block RFID signals and protect you from identity theft. The cherry on top is that it’s made with 85 percent post-consumer-recycled stainless steel, and each wallet is also 100 percent recyclable.


Moshi Urbana Mini ($100)

Urbana Mini

Part of the Moshi family, the Urbana weighs in at just over a pound, which means that you can load it down with everything and anything you need. With three zippered compartments, you don’t have to worry about anything getting out of place, and a padded pocket will keep everything safe from even the most turbulent ride. You can also carry it either by hand or over the shoulder with the adjustable, removable strap. Better yet, thanks to its water-repellent exterior, you’re safe no matter what the forecast may be. The Urbana Mini is also fully compatible with Moshi’s iPad accessory setup, along with the company’s entire accessory line. If you need to carry a 15-inch laptop, too, you can get the full-size Urbana.


Knomo Bags ($80+)

Charging Purse 1

Knomo offers a whole slew of options for the woman on the go, each of which stay true to Knomo’s sleek aesthetic and broad functionality. There’s the charging purse that ensures you’re always well-connected, thanks to its integrated battery charger that will re-juice your phone within a padded section. Or, go for the Beaux Backpack, a full leather pack that is easy on the limbs and the eyes — seriously, who has the energy to lug around all your gadgets and other essentials on one shoulder throughout the day? Or take the Slim Brief, an understated bag outfitted with tumbled, full-grain leather designed to keep your gadgets safe while simultaneously organizing them within a set of neat compartments. There’s also the nice Vigo Tote, if you want a bigger bag.
