Backpacks For Tablets, iPads, Kindles & Nooks

Updated on August 24, 2017

Find the right backpack for your tablet

Find the best selection of tablet backpacks for carrying and protecting your iPad, Kindle, Nook or other tablet. Conventional backpacks don't provide adequate protection for your tablet, and some laptop backpacks have spaces that are just too big.

Find a fashionable yet practical backpack, sling, or messenger bag to carefully protect and transport your iPad, Kindle, Nook or other tablet. There are a variety of styles, sizes and colors to choose from.

Backpacks for Tablets, eReaders, iPads, Nooks etc.

How to choose the right tablet backpack

Before you buy your tablet backpack you will need to take a few things into consideration:

1. Aside from your eReader, tablet or iPad, how much capacity will you need?

2. How long do you want it to last; just the school year, or many years? Consider the quality and brand that you are buying.

3. What other pockets or storage areas will you need: phones, iPods, mp3 players, pens, calculators, water bottles.

4. Zippers: double zippers offer easy access to storage areas, so too do large zippers.

5. Straps: Especially if you are carrying a lot of weight, the size and padding of straps will determine your comfort level.

Rated 4.5 stars from customer reviews, this roomy backpack has a place for a 17" laptop and it's own compartment for your tablet. Made of lightweight yet durable material.


If you can't find the right backpack for tablets, you can always get a protective tablet sleeve or tablet case and place your tablet in the sleeve before adding it into your backpack or travel bag.

iPad Sleeves/ Cases

The iPad is sleek and stylish, but that comes at a cost as well. Being so sleek and smooth, it can easily slip out of your hands or off somewhere and crash to the ground. So protect those corners and give yourself more grip with a cover or sleeve. Not only will a cover provide protection and grip for your tablet, but some of them also have convenient ways of standing your iPad up for better hands-free viewing.
