The Tortuga Laptop Backpack is based on five years of your feedback and reviews of our previous laptop bags.

You told us that you use your personal item to carry your computer, tablet, chargers, headphones, Kindle, water bottle, snacks, jacket, and everything else you need during your flight.

You wanted quick access to everything you need in transit without having to get up, open the overhead bin, and zip open your luggage.

In the Laptop Backpack, every pocket is reachable, even when the bag is under the seat in front of you. The quick-access top pocket, main compartment, and electronics compartment zippers will all be at your fingertips throughout your flight.

When you land, carry the Laptop Backpack for a day of sightseeing or for working from a cafe. When you’re back home, carry it as your daily work backpack.

We designed the Laptop Backpack to be the perfect in-flight companion that you can also use every day. The sleek, modern shape blends in anywhere, even at the office.

The improvements above add up to a significantly better Laptop Backpack. But the most important features of all Tortuga backpacks haven’t changed.

Like all Tortuga backpacks, the new Laptop Backpack is:

  • Carry-on-sized
  • Organized
  • Comfortable to carry
  • Built to last

These four features are non-negotiable.
