As a commuter, there’s nothing worse than lugging around a bulky backpack or purse that gets in your way as you’re heading to work or school. The ideal bag needs to be large enough to hold all your laptop and any important documents, as well as daily essentials like your keys, wallet and phone.

If you’ve been struggling to find the perfect bag that does all of the above, you’re not alone. But thanks to Amazon and their affordable line of basics, we may just have found the answer to your prayers.

The AmazonBasics 15.6-Inch Laptop Computer and Tablet Shoulder Bag is one of the site’s top-selling bags, and has a 4.7 star rating on over 1,900 customer reviews. This messenger-style bag has a slim profile that still manages to keep you organized thanks to multiple inner pockets and a padded laptop sleeve for safe storage.

As one happy reviewer writes, this bag “has more than enough room to hold [my aspire 15.6" laptop], charging cables, external dvd drive in a case and a 10.5" tablet in a case, a phone, charging cables and a few odds and ends.”

It’s also being praised for its affordable price tag, ringing it at only $20.

“I didn’t want anything fancy and I did not want to spend too much in a laptop bag,” writes one Amazon shopper. “This one totally exceeded my expectations, the quality is good and for that price I think it is a very good buy. If you are looking for a regular laptop bag, get this one.”

If you’re in need of a different size to carry your devices, the lightweight bag also comes in four other dimensions to hold everything from a 7-inch tablet to a large 17-inch laptop.
