I’m having more and more need to carry around my 15” MBP, and then also a Verizon mobile hotspot I have yet to procure. Don’t need it to carry much past those two and required support material like cables and chargers. Lighter is better I guess.

Anyone want to pimp their current bag?

It depends on the size and shape of the hotspot. I have a simple Incase sleeve that I once used with my 2006 15” MBP, but it really only held the computer itself. I still use this (or something very like it) inside a pretty generic, inexpensive backpack when I’m just hauling a laptop around from point to point.

At the other end of the spectrum, I have a TSA approved full-on backpack that can hold SEVERAL modern laptops, all of their accessories, a change of clothes, and so on. (I’m not kidding about that…) I use the pack when traveling, but it carries laptop, tablets, cameras and lenses, etc.

Given the size of most mobile hotspots, and that I’d probably want a charger and a few cables with me as well, I’d look at something like this Lenovo bag at Amazon for about $13. Padded, extra pockets, doesn’t look bad…

Heh… I have a black molle pack, and a name tape that says “security”

TSA is like, “move along citizen”.
