Premium Check-in freundlicher Laptop-Rucksack für Notebooks bis zu 17.3" (EKP133)
Everkis Premium Laptop-Rucksack für den mobilen Berufstätigen, der eine Qualität erwartet, die gleichzeitig den Stil nicht vernachlässigt. Das sorgsam designte Fächerkonzept bietet genau die richtige Menge an Organisationsbereichen, während das qualitativ hochwertige Material für das stilsichere Auftreten sorgt, das Sie sich wünschen.
Der Everki Concept Rucksack wurde für den mobilen Berufstätigen designt, der sich organisatorische
Funktionalität wünscht, jedoch keine Abstriche beim Stil machen möchte. Wir haben den Concept mit unseren besten
Materialien hergestellt, wie etwa ballistisches Nylon sowie mit einem hochwertigen Ledergriff und -akzenten. Der
Concept bietet Ihnen ausschließlich eine Premium-Ausstattung, wie unser einzigartiges Hartschalenetui für Sonnenbrillen
und das patentierte Eckenschutz-System am Laptopfach. Die moderne Ästhetik und der frische Stil des Rucksacks lassen
Sie aus der Masse herausstechen. Zudem hat der Concept exklusive, von Everki neu entwickelte Details, wie vorgeformte
Tragegurte, unverkennbare Reißverschluss-Zieher und einen einzigartigen Ausgang für Ihr Kopfhörerkabel. Der Concept
demonstriert die Everki-Qualität.
Der Concept Rucksack wurde sorgsam designt, mit praktischen Stauräumen und ausgewählten Besonderheiten
für Ihre Geschäftsreise. Das Technikfach setzt sich zusammen aus einem mit Filz ausgekleideten Bereich für
Ihren bis zu 17.3-Zoll großen Laptop und einem separaten, ebenfalls mit Filz gepolsterten Fach für Ihr Tablet.
Ihre Sonnenbrille oder Lesebrille wird ebenso gut geschützt, wenn Sie diese im Hartschalenetui in der
Taschenoberseite aufbewahren. Das Hauptfach ist äußerst geräumig und sorgt dafür, dass wichtige Papiere
und Dokumente mittels Aktenorganisation ordentlich und übersichtlich aufbewahrt werden. Brauchen Sie
zusätzliche Sicherheit für Ihre wichtigsten Dokumente, um ein gutes Gefühl zu haben? Nutzen Sie das an
der Unterseite angebrachte Fach der Regenhaube als optionales Versteck. Der Concept – Besonderheiten,
die den Unterschied machen.
Groß genug für die komfortable Unterbringung eines 17.3-Zoll Laptops. Das äußerst weiche, mit Filz ausgekleidete
Laptopfach hält Ihr Gerät sicher an seinem Platz. Und da Flughafenkontrollen oft sehr mühsam sein können, haben
wir ein stressfreies Laptopfach designt, das um 180° geöffnet werden kann. Das Checkpoint-Friendly Design lässt
Sie durch die Kontrolle schweben, ohne dass Sie Ihr Gerät aus seinem Fach nehmen müssen. Öffnen Sie den Concept
einfach um 180°, legen Sie ihn flach hin und schon bewegt er sich schnell durch den Scanner. Und sollten Sie
Ihren Laptop dennoch herausnehmen müssen, so können Sie dies tun, ohne dass Sie sich durch Ihren Rucksack wühlen
oder anderen Inhalt herausnehmen zu müssen.
Sie reisen mit Sonnenbrille oder Lesebrille? Dann wollen Sie sicher sein, dass sie in Ihrer Tasche geschützt
aufbewahrt ist. Das einzigartige Brillen-Hartschalenfach von Everki wurde speziell dafür entwickelt. In diesem
eingebauten Hartschalenfach gibt es viel Platz für Brille oder Sonnenbrille und außerdem ein Nylonfach für Ihr
Telefon oder Kopfhörer. Und da sich dieser Stauraum an der Oberseite des Rucksacks befindet, müssen Sie nie wieder
suchen, wenn Sie etwas daraus brauchen. Ihre Brille ist sicher und immer in Griffweite.
Wenn Ihr Rucksack Ihr mobiles Büro ist, muss Ihr Laptop gut geschützt sein. Deswegen haben wir den
Concept mit zusätzlicher Polsterung im Innenfutter des Laptopfachs und einem exakt angepassten
Eckenschutz designt. Unser patentiertes Eckenschutz-System nutzt enganliegende Ecken, die sich perfekt
um die Unterseite Ihres Laptopfachs legen, um vor Stößen zu schützen, beispielsweise wenn Sie Ihren
Rucksack versehentlich zu abrupt auf den Boden stellen. Das schockabsorbierende System des Concept
gibt Ihnen ein sicheres Gefühl, da Sie wissen, dass Ihr Laptop geschützt in Ihrem Rucksack verstaut ist.
Hergestellt aus hochwertigsten Materialien wie
wasserabweisendem ballistischen Nylon, ist dieser
Rucksack äußerst strapazierfähig - auch unter
herausfordernden Bedingungen. Dieses wasserabweisende
Material wurde zum Schutz und mit hoher Abriebfestigkeit
entwickelt, um den Inhalt Ihres Rucksacks zu sichern.
Wir geben noch eine separate Regenhaube dazu, damit
selbst bei unfreundlichstem Wetter kein Tropfen
Der Premium Concept Rucksack ist mit einem
ergonomischen Schultergurtsystem ausgestattet,
welches das Gewicht gleichmäßig verteilt und so die
Muskelbelastung reduziert. Der Brustgurt nimmt etwas
Last von Ihren Schultern und holt es für eine bessere
Balance nach vorne.
Jedes Innenfutter von Everki ist in einem stylischen,
kontrastreichen Orange gehalten und somit schnell
erkennbar. Denn wir wissen wie frustrierend es ist,
wenn man vergisst ein Fach zu schließen oder wie
schwer sich das Innere eines Rucksackes vor einem
schwarzen Untergrund organisieren lässt.
Smart und stylisch.
Haben Sie jemals den Reißverschluss an Ihrer
Lieblingstasche kaputt gemacht? Wir schon. Deswegen
haben wir den Concept mit widerstandsfähigen
Reißverschlüssen und besonders großen Metallziehern
ausgestattet. Damit Ihr Lieblingsrucksack
Ihr Lieblingsrucksack bleiben kann.

This bag is full of slot-style storage for inserting laptops, folders, files, and small gadgets in an extremely organized fashion. I love how it feels really light on my back due to the weight distribution and cushioning. It feels very durable and high quality. We'll see what the bag looks like in 2 years. If it falls apart before then, I probably won't buy another and we'll see if they honor the limited lifetime warranty.
If you are looking to shove gym clothes, shoes, large photography cameras, Xbox360, or IED explosives, you can buy a $30 bag at Target. This bag was designed for the organized, business traveler. If y'all are looking for a stuff sack to throw junk in, this is the wrong bag for you.
I am particular about products. I would have given it 5 stars except for the following 2 reas, but it makes it harder to get things out of the bag because it gets in the way when pulling files, magazines, papers, etc, out of the back pack, which leads to #2...
2. The back pack is large, which is what I want/need. For a pack this large, I would expect that things could fit in a more organized manner. There are LOTS of pockets and things, but it just seems that there could be some more organization. The space for an iPad and laptop are very easy to use at the airport, but on a day-to-day basis, pulling the shoulder straps back to get the laptop in & out isn't quite perfect; the trade-off for a fast airport experience.
All this said, I do like the backpack a lot. It fits perfect under the seat of an airplane, it keeps stuff protected and organized. The water bottle holders on each side are great (I use an insulated Camelbak squeeze bottle that is a little larger). I could go for some more external pockets and storage. because I load it up with so much stuff! Great product Everki!
I would like to update my initial review and rating of Everki and my purchasing experience of my Concept backpack.
The customer service department contacted me regarding my review and the issues with my purchase, and their follow-up service was impeccable. After a lengthy discussion regarding my concerns, I was directed to try the Atlas backpack, a new product that has the pass-thru luggage handle feature I was seeking. I exchanged the backpacks, and one word: amazing. Not only does the Atlas have an excellent pass-thru feature, the overall interior of the backpack allows for a modular setup of organizers and gadgets.
I'd like to change my review of the Everki service and products to 5-stars, up from the original 2-stars. Perhaps my original experience with their customer service was a glitch, but their follow-up was excellent. I'm writing this from the airport with the new backpack, and it's by far one of the best checkpoint-friendly backpacks I've ever used.
Since the Concept was only available from Everki at the time I purchased it, I called Everki and was told that this bag is essentially bigger version of the Versa. Since there were more specs online for the Versa than the Concept, I researched the Versa and then ordered the Concept expecting the same features. Bad idea. I travel a lot with only carry-on luggage, and find a luggage-handle strap, or something that holds the bag to the rollaboard extendable handles, priceless. The Concept does not have one, though it seems the Versa has one (I must caveat this that I've never used the Versa, having bought the Concept instead, but found some popular websites indicating this feature). I literally received the bag on the day I had to travel, so I transferred the contents from my Samsonite and ran to the airport. The cursory check didn't seem to show the handle strap very easily, but I just thought it was cleverly designed and hidden. I called Everki, and nope, the Concept does not have one. Probably the reason I only give 2 stars is that the bag itself is ok, but the customer service was so-so after I contacted them, even after I explained that I did not get the right information for the purchase. Will never buy another Everki product again.
Purchased my Concept backpack in mid November 2013. Really liked the overall features and design of the backpack. So many pockets and compartments to store and hide your personal items. Used it often whenever flying to my destinations. Soft back cushion is great during long treks through the airport or commute. The protected laptop compartment is a very nice innovation by Everki.
Recently, the seam on the shoulder strap came apart and the hole kept getting larger. Called customer service and expected some resistance since it has been over 6 months since my purchase. My faith in "true" customer service was restored by how Everki handled the situation. The c.s.r. was happy, courteous and so helpful. It took a total of 3 business days from start to finish to address and close my inquiry.
Fantastic job on handling the situation and addressing the problem in quick, efficient and professional manner.
Excellent product backed up by superior customer service!!!
Amazing bag, excellent customer service.
I bought this bag from Amazon UK. One year after I lost the chest straps in a flight where I had to check in the bag. Contacted Everki customer support by email, indicating order and serial numbers, and they sent me replacement straps. No questions asked. Swift.
Top notch quality and best organisation and pocket arrangement I know in a bag. Big and roomy but extremely comfortable. But best bag by miles... Thanks Everki.
My brother bought me this kit for Christmas '16, after having done some research and knowing that my ten year old Samsonite backpack was on its last legs. I have to say that I commend his research. This backpack is superb. Its compartments and their pockets are so well considered, it's as if it were a bespoke design. And the quality is simply knockout.
I have never owned a piece of kit like it and have been extolling its qualities to anyone who'll listen ever since. It is superb in every respect. Seriously, I cannot fault it.
One more thing: I have had some experience of Everki customer support and I have to say you cannot ask for better. I don't normally write product reviews but they have earned every word of this one, as far as I am concerned.
Awesome bag, please check out my video review on youtube.
I discovered one problem with this bag. once the rain cover is removed from the bag and it is put back into its sleeve (which is at the bottom of the bag) the bag will not stand straight on the ground.
its just impossible to fold the rain cover to its original state so that it would fit properly back into the sleeve. so now i move around without the rain cover..
I've searched for this backpack for years. I carry a rather heavy laptop and had a backpack that I loved for it's features, but it didn't perform with the weight I carried in it. The shoulder straps would break down in about 6 months...they were elastic. This back pack has lasted 2 years, no issues! I love it...while some features are missing from the model I left, the other features it provides more than make up for the loss. It is EXTREMELY durable, and looks very nice as well. Thanks EVERKI for a very good product.
When I unboxed the Concept, I could tell right away that it was a quality bag. It's very sturdy but still has a good feel to it. This was the only bag I could find with everything I was looking for (i.e. checkpoint capability, correct laptop pocket sizing, good material, sunglass holder). It was the priciest bag I've ever bought, but I plan on using it for a really long time.
I have now made several trips to multiple destinations with this backpack, so feel that I am now qualified to review it.
Overall, expensive for what it is.
Pro: Looks nice, nice quality zips.
Comfort: I have had better.
Quality: after about two weeks, the stitching on the small interior pockets began to undo (with practically zero use). So far that is the only quality issue.
Usability: Having to move the straps to get to the laptop is a pain. However, given TSA requirements, this is probably hard to avoid.
The lack of external pockets is painful. The front magnetic closure pocket is insecure and not a lot of use. The side pockets have no zips, they are only good for carrying water bottles. I want this for business, not a long trek over deserts. Adding zips would make these pockets somewhat useful. The hard "sunglasses" case would be much more useful if it were soft. No-one is going to use that for sunglasses, its the only real external pocket available with secure closure. The sharp bends in the zip on this make opening/closing somewhat painful.
The zips on the major compartments are much too short. They only open about 2/3 of the way down, making it hard to get at items at the bottom of the backpack, in particular, the net pocket which is the only really sensible place for cables, chargers etc. You have to fiddle around blind to find things.
The middle compartment has a somewhat cheesy divider, with pockets on the back. These are ok, but seem cheap and not really enough to keep things like a Macbook pro power supply and cable contained easily. Again, velcro fasteners (cheap). Otherwise, things have to be just tossed either side of the divider, and because you can't open the compartment up fully, its like a luck-dip trying to find things.
The laptop/tablet section is ok. The retainers for the laptop and tablet are elastic straps with velcro. The tablet strap is way too long, reaching way past the fixed velcro pad without stretching. It is loose and floppy and I have my doubts about it really securing my iPad. The strap for the laptop is about the right length, but again I have doubts about a bit of velcro really securing the laptop. Plastic clip fittings would have been much preferable and more in keeping with the price paid.
I mentioned the small pockets with the stitching coming undone; these are essentially useless. Much too small to be useful, and again, no form of retention for anything.
Shoulder straps seem to need re-adjusting every time I put the backpack on.
Overall, compared to its predecessor (a sub $100 Swiss gear backpack) I am unimpressed, especially given the price. Made for show rather than for practical use.
After doing some internet searching for a good bag for my vacation of a lifetime trip to japan with my wife, I decided to get the "Concept" bag Everki. I LOVE this bag! The build quality is great, as are all of the little touches like the sunglasses / hard case in the top of the bag.
I also like the fact that I can carry either 1 laptop and 1 tablet, or 2 laptops without removing them from the bag. I have gone through a few different airports, including the one in Japan, and had no issue leaving (2) laptops in the bag and just zipping the laptops flag open and running it through the scanner.
It was more expensive than some other bags, but I have had the bag for over a year and half, and use it every day going back and forth to work with multiple electronic devices with no whatsoever.
I am so glad I purchased this bag, and can highly recommend it!
How many bags have you bought? Me, I bought too many until I saw this bag online.For two years I have had this bag traveling on commercial and military aircraft. Comfort and ease is the best to describe this as a user traveling. My MacBook Air, iPad, sunglasses, bottled waters, snacks, utensils, etc. were easy to get to and safely guarded in this bag. The price is worth it. Especially, if you've traveled enough on commercial flights and are getting tired of TSA. Two agents were pestering me (while I was in military uniform) to take my items out. I smiled while unzipping the back of the bag for them to scan my laptop & iPad. The bottom corners work great in protecting any device you put in it. You'll love the velvet-smooth feel of the lining for your laptop(s). Be careful of the chest straps; I lost the female-end to mine, but the warranty will be sending in a new one. You're missing out on quality. The next time it rains, or you're in a dust storm...you'll wish you had the extra protection this bag gives.
I have had this bag for over a year and travel with it extensively internationally and domestically.
The construction of this bag is very strong. Large zippers, thick nylon, leather and straps. The joints and seams are well stitched which is the usual failure point of many bags or the zippers fail.
I've loaded this bag for bear as there is plenty of space, to the point it gets rather heavy to carry. It will fit in the overhead of even the small commuter planes, with a little persuasion. It has enough pockets for organization but I wish it had a few more up high in each compartment.
The computer is well protected and corners have extra support and protection.
The best thing is it zips open for security so no need to remove the laptop computer!
I'm sure this bag will out last most others I've used over the years.
I also have the Titan which I have not used and looks rather big for airplane travel but is of the same build quality.
I just wish there was a side handle strap so one could grab the bag to pull it out of the overhead bin.
I have never used the rain cover but that is a nice feature and I'm sure will be useful one day.
It has become a habit of mine to lug around my laptop to wherever I go, including on holidays, and I have been looking for a backpack that is conceptually sound and built tough. The Concept Premium checkpoint friendly backpack answered all my prayers. I can put my Asus N57 and my Ipad, and all the other gadgets that I bring around. It also has rooms to store my Moleskin notebook, my Hibben knife and also my other daily necessities. The backpack looks great to boot.....
For the record, I think this backpack is overpriced, but Everki knows their market I guess because they're selling them. I honestly think next to their other units it's worth about 200 US, not 300. That being said I'm glad I got it as it is a great backpack. Every day I've owned it I like it more. It's built very solidly, has great features and plenty of room. I guess I'd say it's about the details. There's many little touches that just make sense and it's a pleasure to use. I really like that it stands up on it's own too, it's nice to be able to just sit it down upright and know it'll stay that way and not fall over.
This is a very well-designed backpack. It holds everything I need for business travel, and the chest compression strap makes it very comfortable to wear. The pockets and pouches allow me to organize smaller items like cords and chargers with ease.
I just received the backpack in January, and I am disappointed to see that the stitching around the edge inside the main pocket has already begun to unravel after only 3 trips - the pack I replaced was much less convenient to use, but still looks new after 5 years of travel. I will probably have to go back to using it once this one comes undone.
I'm using this backpack for few months now. It is amazing. I was blown away by the quality of the material and the make. It is indeed premium. The checkpoint friendly feature is of great help, the glasses compartment is awesome.
My only issue with the backpack is that when I take out my laptop and try to keep it, it topples towards the front. It doesn't have a steady base. May be its just me, but this somewhat irritating. Not a major thing. But could be improved.
Overall I'm very happy with it and I love it. I think this is one of the best backpacks I have ever owned.
I’ve really enjoyed my Everki Back Pack!
I carry everything possible in it, all the way from my laptop to tape measures & real estate essentials. The follow up was great! Any company is nice unless you have a problem, but when I sent the back pack back, because of a flaw in it, I received a replacement within a week later. You really find out what a company is like when you have a problem. I don’t hesitate to recommend working with Everki!! David Petersmith
I just purchased this bag the Everki Concept to replace the Booq bag I had for many years. Looked good and thought it could handle my work load. I work in the music business, carry lots of stuff, cables, bits and pieces.
Great bag well made, could not handle the stuff I had in my Booq Python and keep things organized, not even close. Lesson learned, this bag will collect dust now.
Ended up buying the next model of the Booq and it blows this bag away, with pouches, organization , quality, ease of accessing things I need.
If you want a good backpack, overpriced get the Everki.
If you want a functional bag, as good a quality, better price point get the Booq.
Absolutely amazing bag.
Has room for literally anything I may need with plenty of compartments and such for organising essentials for university. Fits my textbooks, notebook, 17inch macbook pro, kindle/tablet, charger, pens literally everything.
And the sunglasses case is spacious enough for my sunglasses, glasses and phone.
Had a slight problem with a slight tear at the top and contacted them and sent me a prompt replacement within 2 days! An amazing experience purchasing and using this product.
The best pack out there. Got this for work and it does exactly what I need it to, design/pockets are perfectly sized and placed. Holds everything with ease and keeps enough room for any extra items as needed. Customer service is excellent, had a issue and they resolved it 100% very quickly. Will definitely use Everki products again.
1) Comfort - seems to distribute weight comfortably. Puts laptop right on back, I like this idea but would have liked a little more padding between me and a large flat laptop. Still comfortable, just been spoiled. *assigned 1/1*
2) Spacious - I am a senior in physics and student director of a MakerSpace. This means my bag needs to carry a day’s work load including: (1) 17.3" laptop, (3) 100+ page notebooks, (3) LARGE books, (2) smaller books, calipers, 12" metal ruler, (2) large framed tinted safety glasses, USB chargers/cords, writing utensils, portable dry erase board, TI89, (2) sodas up to 1.5 Liter in size, misc. other small items. *assigned 1/1*
3) Organization/convenience - Keeps my laptop separate, would like to know how often the TSA ignores their requirements. And make you remove your laptop anyway. Keeps my shades and other on the fly items on top and accessible. Sorts my tools and writing utensils into pouches. Key clip is convenient. The bright orange interior makes it easy to see items inside. The front folds down making the bottom of the front compartment harder to access, this is a design I’ve noticed many times and may be about longevity. The "stash pocket" is a cool idea. Large zippers for easy to easy use.*assigned 1/1*
4) Protection - The hard shell sunglass holder does its job well. The Laptop compartment is soft lined so it protects my investment. I like the idea of the corner-guard but can’t vouch for it doing anything more than giving piece of mind. Also the face side of the side pouches isn’t mesh which I think will last longer when it rubs as I walk through small spaces, and the compact design keeps me from banging into things. I have a glass touch screen laptop and in the bouncing around and falling over in my vehicle that the backpack has done no worries thus far. The ballistic nylon is very good in moisture and the added cover guarantees that it will stay dry. *assigned 1/1*
5) Quality/longevity – It seems that it is built to spec and should last, however only time will tell. The materials lead me to think, based on past experience that it could last over 6 years, and at the price that is my expectation. As of today it’s in good shape (30 days) * assigned 0/1*
This means they have gotten 4/4 stars that they can have today.
Let me start by saying my Everki Concept is well made and quite functional. I bought the backpack off the Everki website at full list price. I love it in all respects except one.
The Everki Concept has a long and narrow handle which in my view is a major design flaw for travelers. The handle is ascetically appealing but a functional failure for Road Warriors.
I live in a small city and have to connect on every flight. I take my Tumi 22 rollabout and Everki Concept on most trips. I use the Tumi attach a bag connector to attach my Everki Concept to transport both bags as one. Due to the long narrow handle my backpack often drags on the pavement and the bottom is for most part now destroyed.
I am sure the Everki Concept is a fantastic backpack for students but in my view functionally a huge disappointment for this Road Warrior with carry on baggage.
At this point, I've only had my bag for a couple of weeks and I must say.... I LOVE IT!! It's a great alternative to the Tumi Alpha bag I've been wanting, costing about $200 less. Great size, weight and comfort. Let's see where this journey takes us!
In February i purchased a concept backpack. Great bag lots of usable features. In November the weld on the zipper broke. Things break , no big deal. What is a big deal is how Daniel handled it.
Great customer service. He was prompt and pro active. Any company that services their products like this deserves an applaud in the day and age of "how cheap can I find something on line". I will support this company as a life long fan.
First let me start off by thanking the staff at Everki for their superior customer service. Although I’ve worked with many bought the Everki EKP133 17.3 Laptop Backpack for my Samsung 17 Series 9 Notebook. You know you’ve received an excellent product when the packaging it arrives in comes in its own name brand pouch. What drew me to this particular bag at first was its executive design look. Soon after reviewing all the bags features , water resistance, airport check-in friendly, just to name a few. This bag in my opinion has it all. Being in the military and stationed in Colorado I just had to take the bag on a hike. Even though I weighed the bag with all my gear, the design of the bag allowed for an even distribution of weight and better center of gravity. Well now that my wife saw the bag she also wants one, so now to buy one for the wife.
After having backpack after backpack fail after roughly 3 months I finally bit the bullet and purchased this bag, and well 3 years later its still going strong. Being loaded up with gear and then thrown in and out of trucks day in and day out it shows little signs of wear.
Had I not had this bag stolen out of my truck, I'd still have it. Probably going to buy another one, as looking around there still doesn't look to be any competition
I've had my backpack almost a year, it gets used everyday lugging around 25lbs of stuff in the worst environment. Normal backpacks last 4-7 months before they need replacing. This still looks like the day I bought it. I'm expecting to get 3 years from this one, based on the price that's the break even point. Couldn't ask for more out of a backpack
The backpack is good looking and has high quality zippers with large zipper pulls. The top mounted hard case for glasses is extremely useful and one of the Concept's most practical features. The computer pocket offers good protection for the laptop inside. The high visibility interior is also a nice touch.
As a frequent traveler I wanted a more unique and stylish backpack that was geared for travel. I really hoped that the Everki Concept would be ideal. While this bag was very good in some areas I found shortcomings in the design and build of the bag that were disappointing. Based on my experience I would rate this backpack in the
average to good range.
Where the backpack really fails is in the straps. There is no stretch or shock absorption built into the straps at all. The padding inside the straps feels stiff and cheap. The part of the strap touching wearer is nylon mesh and it is slippery on many jacket materials. The straps ideally would have some stretch built into them to cushion shocks and increase comfort like other backpacks on the market. Also the straps should resist slipping by using materials with more grip. The straps could also be more robust. The metal part joining the upper and lower parts of the strap broke on my backpack after six months of use. It broke under a moderate load which is a concern for future use. Everki offered to fix or replace the backpack which indicates they honor their warranty but this part just should not have broken so easily. The design of the straps impacts customer comfort and a failed strap could cause the wearer's computer to be damaged. More thought should have been put into the functional design here.
One more note for improvement: There are two internal pockets that seem to be for power cables, mice and other computer gear. These were in a separate compartment from the laptop and they were down rather low in the bag where the user must dig for them. It would be a huge improvement to have a zippered mesh bag located in the top of the laptop section where these items could be placed. Since they are used with the computer the user would only have to open one compartment. Also, in any backpack the loose items gather at the bottom causing the bottom to bulge. The top space in the bag is wasted. Locating a mesh bag on the top of a compartment would reduce the thickness of the packed bag and allow it to fit into overhead bins more easily. This bag seems to be aimed at travel with its Checkpoint Friendly design. This would improve its usefulness in travel.
Also, the bag has an unsecured pocket which appears to be sized for passports near the top of one compartment. I would have preferred a covered mesh pocket so the passport could be easily visible but secured in some way (Velcro/zipper) to prevent the passport from accidentally falling out or being stolen if the bag was open.
I've had it for over 2 years and it is still like BRAND NEW. I never write reviews, but I feel compelled to tell the world about this amazing backpack. Its design is like they read my mind and knew what I wanted and needed before I did, and the quality is perfect - so good, in fact, that I just purchased 3 other Everki bags (the venue and studio are delightful!).
I travel domestically around Australia quite a bit (weekly), with a handful of international trips a year and this bag sure can take a beating. I weigh it down with electronics (iPads, laptops, phones, headphones) and other bulky equipment required for my job, and I am amazed at how well it has coped with my abuse over the years. The only sign of wear is on the inside lining of the front first zipped compartment where it's just starting to wear from rubbing due to the snap clasp of the front pocket.
