Back-to-work essentials: business luggage, bags and cases for professionals


Whether you're walking or cycling, or travelling by car, train or plane, a practical, comfortable business bag will hold your files and laptop as well as personal belongings.

Ready to head back to the office at the end of summer?  Or rather, swap your sandy, holiday suitcase for a business bag that will follow you wherever you go?  Essential for a successful return to work, business luggage allows you to transport your personal belongings as well as your files and laptop.  Whether you are travelling by plane, train, car, bicycle or on foot, you need your luggage to be practical and comfortable.  Trying to make your mind up between a pilot case and a cabin bag, a laptop backpack or briefcase?  Follow our guide!

Out of the office for a day

Businessmen and women can spend a lot of time travelling between meetings and between offices.  They’re always on the move!  It’s a perk of the job, if you're properly equipped.

3 options :

The business backpack

The main advantage of a business backpack is its practicality.  You don't feel the weight and your hands are free. Business backpacks have a padded compartment to protect your laptop.

Ladies will love the Borne Business backpack from the Uppsala Leather collection, whose compact size (33 x 45 x 14 cm) and 19-litre capacity has space for a screen up to 15.4”. And with its fully lined interior with world map design, it's a stylish addition to the collection.  

Gentlemen will be very comfortable with the 39 cm Boston backpack from the Boston collection, which feels like a second skin.  And so will your laptop (fits screens up to 15”).

The business handbag

Did you think handbags were only for women ? Not so.  There are business handbags for everyone, to suit every need ! 

The Boston handbag is ideal for carrying your keys and wallet. The bag can be worn over the shoulder or across the chest with its adjustable strap. It is also designed to hold an iPad.  

For a day at the shops, or for carrying lots of paperwork, without giving up on style, the Cassis handbag combines a beautiful fruit colour with a capacity of no less than 14 litres. All this in a practical design, including a trolley sleeve to fit over the retractable handle of your suitcase.

The laptop bag

A laptop bag is ideal for anyone who wants to combine maximum elegance with maximum practicality.

Worn over the shoulder, the Uppsala leather briefcase is a guarantee of chic, but also the secret to being super-organised.  It includes three compartments, flat pockets, key finder strap, and has a total capacity of 10 litres. 

“Stripe 2.0” laptop bag

With its numerous compartments for pens, smartphone and other accessories, not to mention the USB port and charger, the Stripe 2.0 briefcase is virtually a mobile office that lets you keep all your essentials close at hand.

For short overnight trips

Your calendar for autumn 2022 includes a few trips away for one or two nights. This means you’ll need to take toiletries and a change of clothes with you, as well as your laptop.  

More compact than a carry-on, but with room for all your belongings, the pilot case is the ideal business bag for the frequent flyer that you are. The Moorea expandable 4-wheel pilot case serves all your storage and handling needs. Its compact size (only 20 cm x 43 cm) means you can slide it under your seat when travelling by plane. Tucked out of the way, it still leaves you all the space you need to be comfortable during the flight! 

For getting about on foot, the Moorea pilot case continues to be as discreet as possible, while fitting your individual shape. It has an extremely light, aluminium, telescopic handle, with several positions so it can be adjusted to suit your height. Inside the Moorea pilot case, your belongings are safe in the fully-lined interior with support straps. The two zipped pockets on the front of the pilot case are ideal for storing accessories and travel documents.

For trips of 3 to 5 days

Business training, trade shows, exhibitions, trips across the Atlantic... In the business world, there are frequent opportunities to visit new countries on stays of three days or longer.  

Don't be caught out at the start of the new school year 2022. Be prepared by getting your Lauris carry-on suitcase now. It combines large capacity with guarantees of safety and easy handling. With the Lauris cabin case, you're ready for anything !  This expandable suitcase can hold more or fewer belongings, depending on the length of your trip. If you're going away for longer, it can be used like a large suitcase with its telescopic handle. It is equipped with an American standard zip to make your passage through customs easier, while keeping your most precious belongings safe. Its 4 wheels are silent and its adjustable handle ensures maximum comfort when you get off the plane !

And to complete your business traveller's kit for 2022-2023...

Don't forget the combinations. For example, if you alternate short trips with longer business trips, match your cabin bag with a briefcase that can be carried over the handle, or a business backpack with your wheeled suitcase !
