Laptop bags: 13- and 14-inchers

Mid-size machine holders

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

STM Alley Small

RH Numbers

STM has gone for a long but narrow design rather than the usual wide and short look favoured by most messenger bags. That makes the Alley more discreet that some laptop bags, but no less capacious for that. In addition the the shoulder strap, there's a carry handle. If you don't like the mobile phone holder on the strap, it's easy to remove.

STM Alley Small

There are plenty of pockets for mice, power adaptors, phones, books and such, but it'll only take a bulky item like a DSLR camera in protest. The laptop section has its own, internal cover, and there's a second padded pocket for a tablet. The cover is velcro sealed.

Whatever the hue, there's acres of space inside - it's quite capable of taking chunky devices like cameras - and an extra, zippered pocket on the back. It seems pretty well stitched and the plastic clips feel solid.
