R&D endeavors for laptop bags focus on utility

Current models boast numerous pockets, hard exteriors and even suspension systems.

Manufacturers of laptop bags in China continue to highlight functionality and ergonomics in their product selection.

  The HI21127 model from Shenzhen Hiho is made of oxford fabric and lined with nylon. It measures 38x28x7.5cm and goes for $10.98.

The latest designs have sections shaped specifically for various work essentials such as documents, notepads and pens. Personal belongings, including smartphones, portable media players and wallets, are also considered.

To enhance water resistance, even the lining is made of fabrics coated with PU, PVC or TPR. Impact protection is boosted by padding not only the outer walls with regular or high-density foam but also the interior panels.

Quanzhou Sandoo Bags Co. Ltd uses PC to create rigid shells that endure shock. The case has a clothes compartment and is mounted on a trolley so that it can be used for short trips.

For ease of carriage, business backpacks employ suspension systems similar to those adopted in hiking counterparts. The component includes steel supports and a carbon fiber mesh frame. It distributes weight evenly across the back, shoulders and hips.

China-made laptop bags are usually in satchel, messenger and backpack styles. The first, in particular, often comes with a detachable shoulder strap. All kinds may be mounted on wheels for the user to maneuver heavy loads effortlessly. Sleeves and hard cases are also available.

Polyester and nylon in ballistic, oxford, canvas and jacquard constructions are the mainstream fabric choices for the exterior. The most commonly utilized is 1680d polyester.

PU leather and cowhide are incorporated in upscale models. The latter is about 50 percent more expensive than textile designs. Water-resistant and lightweight neoprene is generally for sleeves. The lining options are 190 or 210d polyester, nylon and cotton. Almost all releases have an inner layer, except for sheaths that must remain thin.

Trimmings are subdued. PU, PVC and genuine leather may outline the edges. The logo is printed or embroidered. Some feature a metal, rubber or stamped patch. Generic and branded zippers, buckles and hook-and-loop tape are adopted for closures. SBS, YKK, UTX and Velcro are the widely sourced trademarks.

The majority of bags come in muted colors such as black, dark green, navy and khaki. Some companies also offer styles in bright hues to cater to young users.

Prices vary from $2 to $70 based on materials and structural complexity. Suppliers intend to increase quotes as material costs are expected to rise in the coming months. Specifically, soaring crude oil rates may push up the value of synthetic textiles and leather. Higher labor expenses and further appreciation of the yuan are also factors.
