I have a backpack with a laptop compartment (the top half of this compartment can be opened with a zipper). That compartment is just about the right size for my laptop that I would like to carry in said backpack.
However, the backpack as such does not appear to be particularly padded in any way; at least, it appears to be less padded than typical laptop bags.
What is a good way to add some additional protection for my laptop that will decrease the risk of physical damage during my daily commute from e.g. bumping the backpack against a wall on a crowded train?
I am looking for a solution that fulfils the following requirements:
- It should be some padding or similar on the inside of the backpack that does not take much space, so as to not decrease the internal backpack size too much (maybe just parts of padding placed at strategic points?).
- The padding should in some way be fixed within the backpack, so it doesn't require rearranging every time I pack/unpack the laptop.
- It should not make my luggage disproportionately heavier.
