I live in a major metropolitan area and I've started running home instead of taking the bus. That being said, sometimes I need to take my work laptop home with me and - if possible - I would like to not have this be an excuse to not run home.

That being said, are there any good running back packs which will help keep a laptop snug and safe from sweat/water?

    I'd also suggest safe from a fall too. I had a manhole collapse on me while jogging to work last week, one smashed phone, one smashed laptop.

  • You can look at this other question for some ideas, but avoid asking for shopping recommendations. See the faq.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is a shopping question.

The Incase Compact Backpack should be perfect for you needs. It hugs one's back very well and I do believe it is water resistant.
