If your job involves a lot of fieldwork, there is a broad range of things you have to hurl around on a daily basis. Whether you are going to a potential client’s office to make a presentation or visiting a site for inspection, carrying your laptop (and other items) with you all the time can be a nuisance. It gets even worse when for some reason, you have to carry multiple laptops to the field, and that’s when you find yourself facing a real conundrum. You will have to find the ideal means of transporting laptops, documents, and other items safely to and from the office.
It’s All about Your Needs
Your choice of a bag will depend on your needs. Will you be driving your car or using public transportation? How many laptops do you need to carry? Are there any other items you will be carrying along with your laptop? Your profession matters. Technicians, doctors, lawyers, students all have different carrying needs and hence different solutions.
Protect Your Documents
It’s the field, and this means that it’s easy for documents to get lost or damaged. If you work in a creative field and lug around all sorts of items on the daily, you might have to get yourself a hard case. For something lightweight to keep your documents safe throughout the day, go for a structured bag/case with sturdy straps, if possible. This one can carry just about anything you want to transport. It provides extra protection for your important documents.
There are backpacks that allow you to carry several items all at once, including laptops. It’s like having multiple bags. You can attach a series of different pockets to the base of the carrying case to suit whatever type of challenges you will be facing.
You can detach any of the smaller bags and attach it to the shoulder strap and use it as a handy laptop bag, whether you are traveling out on business or carrying fieldwork equipment and you need a carrying solution. Some bags can even be converted to trolleys, this could be a perfect solution for those who need to carry several laptops as well as other items in the field.
Quality Is Key
A backpack, carrying case, or any carrying solution shouldn’t cost as much as your rent, but you should step it up a notch higher and make a worthwhile investment. Above everything else, aim for quality.
