Love the laptop access from side or top, love the zipper angling back for easy tech reach, love the new wide and deep water bottle pockets, great back padding and strap padding, love the luggage strap to slide over a rolling luggage handle, lots of room while still sleek and comfortable.
The laptop bag is fantastic for everyday use. As an owner of one of the Tortuga travel backpacks, I was looking for a smaller option that I could use daily and for weekend trips. The bag has a sleek design and is nicely sized. What I particularly like is the side zipper that provides easy access to the laptop compartment, even when the bag is fully packed. Additionally, there are two convenient quick access pockets: one on top for essentials like keys, headphones, and chargers, and another flat pocket on the side that's perfect for books or slim, flat items. As always great build quality from Tortuga.
I love the zipper placement on this bag. It makes grabbing items from under the seat super easy, and its sleek enough that I don't have to worry about where it's going to fit. I love it! Also really appreciate the double sleeve for both an iPad and a computer.
I brought this backpack half way across the world as my carryon. The laptop compartment made it super easy for me to get my laptop in and out for the three (3) security checkpoints I had. The bag’s shape gives some good additional space for putting other things. The front compartment at the top is one of my favourite parts, I could stuff so much there that I could easily access later on the plane or the airport— like my charging cable, hand sanitizer, lip balm, ladies pouch etc . On top of that the hidden pocket on the front of the bag came in handy for putting my passport and boarding passes! My boarding passes never got crushed and I was at ease knowing that my passport was in a nice easy accessible but tucked away space! I’d highly recommend this bag!
Tortuga is well known for their travel backpacks, but they have always done a really impressive job with their personal item / edc focused bags. I was a big fan of the Setout and Outbreaker Laptop backs and it was great to see them continue that trend with this new laptop backpack that includes a new aesthetic and layout with some of the new materials that Tortuga has brought into their recently released laptop backpacks.
This one offers great weather resistance, thoughtful organization, and comes in at a great size that can hold a good amount while still fitting comfortably under most airplane seats.
