Kensington's new Contour Balance cases for women are compact and ergonomic, making them easy to carry, even when full.

The designs are available in either "chocolate and vanilla" or "onyx and white", with patterned sections to complement each bag's overall design.

Kensington describe them as tough enough for the commute, smart enough for the office, and fashionable enough for drinks after work.

Perhaps more importantly, they are made from rugged, water-resistant fabrics and include an impact-resistant compartment with an Airbrake bottom, designed to keep laptops safe and dry.

The Contour Balance Notebook Case has a magnetic clasp to keep the handles together, as well as a detachable shoulder strap. The Air-Flo Contour panel dissipates heat and hugs the body for greater comfort.

The Contour Balance Notebook Backpack is ergonomically designed to fit the contours of the body and has non-slip shoulder straps for extra comfort.

The Contour Balance Notebook Roller claims to be 25% lighter than most rollers and has a telescoping handle that shifts the weight to the wheels, minimising strain on the arm.

All models fit notebooks up to 15.4-inches, prices vary, available now.
