Need Notebook backpack recommendations! :)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My sibling just got the Lenovo Y570 laptop (15.6") (Great laptop btw) and I need to get them a backpack as a present. Now this laptop is for university so I want to get them something of good quality so it will last long. I heard of slappa backpacks but don't know for sure if they are good.

Keep in mind I am in Canada, so some sites won't deliver here.

Thanks all!

Ive had

one for a few years, its been in College and been around the country with my work and has never failed.

Also I do alot of off roading for work, as I travel up High Voltage Transmission Lines right of ways. And my work laptops bounce around in this all day and they have never broken. Might be due to the laptops but im sure the bag helps out alot.

They also make a 15.6" sized bag but my 15.6" laptops fit great in here and theres tons of room for other book and another laptop if needed.

I generally stick with Swissgear or Targus. Swissgear is built to last. Most of their packs can fit a laptop, two children, and a Volvo with room to spare.

+1 for Swissgear. I have been using the same backpack for 3 years now. It carries my 14" laptop, books, and lunch every day. Not a single complaint.

I suggest Timbuk2 Bags. They're made in either Seattle or San Fran. They ship to Canada (3-5 day shipping, $35). Here's a page with all the bags that fit your laptop. I didn't actually know the exact specs but every spec had the same dimensions. I have the H.A.L. Backpack 2011, all of their backpacks can be customized; I have a red and black HAL. It's really rugged, plus if you swing it around from your back to only on one shoulder you can get into most of the pockets, including your laptop pocket. The laptop pocket is really insulated and fuzzy (not in a bad way, but a protective way). Also, how can you go wrong with a backpack that has a bottle opener on one of the shoulder straps?!?!

Good luck shopping.

+1 for Swissgear. I've been using my 17" laptop bag for three years and it's been great.
