If you travel with a laptop computer, you need a way of protecting this valuable device while you are out there on the road. You don’t want your computer to get dirty and broken when thrown inside your bags.
To protect your computer, you could purchase a specially made laptop sleeve like this one from Case Logic. But the problem with an item like this is that you are then carrying around an item (and it’s extra weight) that serves only one basic function. A laptop case/sleeve is a pretty big item to carry around just for this one purpose!
That’s why, instead of buying a special laptop case and carrying it around with you on your travels, you could try using a hooded jacket, long-sleeve shirt, or rain jacket to protect your laptop computer. It sounds silly, but it does kind of work.
By using a piece of clothing instead of a single-use laptop case/sleeve, you will have less overall gear to carry with you on your travels and your clothes will serve two functions instead of just one. Watch the video below to learn more.
