Plus, the stiff shell means this laptop case can double as a lapdesk when needed to protect your skin from the heat of the device.

Once your laptop is removed, you may use the reinforced case as a stable lap desk of your computer, helping keep some of the excess heat from reaching your skin.

A high-quality laptop bag for students provides a cost-effective solution for safeguarding this valuable technology and lengthening its lifespan. As the original education-focused case manufacturer, Higher Ground offers a variety of rugged products that will minimize the risk of laptop damage.
Founded in 2003 by a college educator and his former student, Higher Ground continues to set the standard for the industry. The company concentrates on developing cases and bags for schools that combine maximum drop protection with functionality.
