The Best of Rolling Women’s Laptop Bags, Purses and Carry-Ons


We spent weeks examining rolling laptop bags, and here are all of the top options designed for women — generally with the look and style of a purse, but big enough to carry a laptop, and with the lovely extra design feature that they can roll on wheels.

These are solidly built pieces that hit a sweet spot between a large daily purse and small overnight luggage.

There are also plenty of not-specifically-for-women options that we cover in our article on the best rolling laptop bags. Plus, we’ve got you covered if you’re looking for a rolling carry-on backpack option (that is, a carry-on bag with backpack straps and wheels). And if you want to go even bigger, there are great full-size rolling backpacks as checked luggage that you could consider.

Among the options that are designed as rolling women’s purses below, we think that Samsonite and Kensington are the most reliable brands; they are more often backed by consumer testing organizations and offer solid warranties and generally positive real customer reviews. But do check all of the options below as there are a variety of different compelling features — and in the end the choice also greatly depends on your style.
