Sleeves and covers can give you peace of mind when taking your tech on the road, but nothing screams full-on protection like a dedicated laptop bag.
However, picking between a messenger-style laptop bag or a traditional backpack can be tricky. Enter the Veho T-2 Hybrid Laptop Bag & Backpack. This multi-purpose bag was designed to be worn like a backpack or carried around your shoulder like a traditional messenger bag. The DT Shop currently offers the versatile bag for $40, which is $20 off its full price.
Removable straps allow you to adjust the hybrid bag to best suit your needs. To convert the T-2 from a backpack to a messenger bag, simply tuck away the backpack straps into their hidden compartments and secure the included shoulder strap around the edges of the bag. To revert the T-2 into a backpack, you can simply remove the shoulder strap and take out the dual backpack straps.
Travelers can also take advantage of the bag’s top handle, which lets you strap the bag over your luggage handle for easy transportation through airports.
In terms of protection, the T-2 has both a padded exterior and interior to safeguard your devices.
Its padded interior compartments are capable of housing up to a 17-inch laptop and a 10-inch tablet simultaneously. The bag also features additional space for accessories, power adapters, and cables, which can be stored in different compartments inside the bag or in one of the T-2’s exterior pockets away from your laptop and tablet.
The bag is made from a synthetic material that Veho claims is rain and water resistant. Veho also designed its bag in black to help it blend into various environments — from college campuses to office settings — without calling attention to itself.
The T-2 Hybrid Laptop Bag & Backpack is currently $20 off its full $60 retail price.
