Be.ez Le Reporter Air 11

RH Numbers

French firm Be.ez's black-and-yellow Le Reporter has a smooth, urban look that smart without being over-sober. It features a host of front and rear pockets in addition the all-important padded area that's good for 11in laptops, tablet and netbooks.

The car seatbelt material strap is sturdy, the construction good. The only snag: it's design for thin things and doesn't take kindly to being given chunky items to carry. There's a 13in version too.

Belkin 10/12in Messenger Bag

RH Numbers

Belkin's neat black'n'burgundy case isn't really a messenger bag - there's no fold-over flap - and it's not the all that stylish, but it is a decent netbook case that'll happily take a tablet or and 11in MacBook Air instead. It's nicely compact, and if it has a flaw it's that it - like so many other bags for these kinds of machines - doesn't like being over-filled. This one has front and rear pockets for items you want to access quickly - there's a headphone hole so you can keep your music player or phone well stashed - so you can squeeze a lot of stuff in despite its diminutive size.

Ally Capellino 11in Canvas Satchel

RH Numbers
RH Editor's Choice

Not an option if you're out to spend as little as possible, noted London bag designer Ally Capellino's satchel isn't cheap. But that £105 price tag gets you a stylish yet understated shoulderbag that's good for tablets, netbooks and 11in MacBook Airs alike - which is why it's an Apple Store exclusive.

Ally Capellino 11in Canvas Satchel

The canvas is rugged, the stitching solid - this case has a hand-made feel miles away from kit anonymously punched out of Chinese factories. It has a good, well connected strap, and it's not so tightly bound that you can't still get plenty of cables, accessories, cameras, books and such inside too.
