As a mobile professional, you know the demands of business travel; and you know that each leg of the journey comes 
with specific challenges. That’s why we designed the Atlas Series of bags to handle all of travel’s complexities, and 
loaded each bag with solutions to help make your trip streamlined and efficient. Every bag in the Atlas series is rich 
with flexible functionality and offers a multiplicity of organizational features that really work hard for you, while 
the intuitive design makes organizing a breeze.  You’ll find meaningful details throughout to meet your travel needs, 
like dedicated spaces to pack multiple devices including your laptop and tablet. So whether you’re looking for a 
traditional style backpack or a wheeled solution; EVERKI’s feature-rich Atlas Series of bags are the ideal choice.  
 
We’ve crafted the Atlas 17.3-inch laptop backpack with thoughtful details for all your traveling needs, like 
our 5-point balance strap system to lighten the load, and the quick-access top pocket for a boarding pass or 
phone. The dedicated technology compartment safely and securely stores up to a 17.3-inch laptop as well as 
your tablet, while the main compartment is large enough to carry whatever you need for an overseas flight from 
check-in to landing.  Also, you’ll find the Checkpoint Friendly design makes passing through security a breeze.  
Your business cards, magazines and accessories each have designated spots; and when you arrive at your destination, 
you’re ready to step right into the business meeting.  The Atlas – finally, the ideal traveling companion.  
 
The fully adjustable and padded laptop pocket adapts to snugly secure a slim 13-inch Ultrabook or a large 17.3-inch 
laptop. Customize the size of the pocket from the bottom and both sides, and use the Velcro strap to secure your 
device from the top. Both laptop and tablet will remain safe in their extra padded and super soft, felt-lined 
pockets. The laptop compartment is also Checkpoint Friendly, and allows you to pass through airport security 
without removing the device from its pocket. Simply open the Atlas up 180 degrees, lay it flat, and your bag 
will quickly pass through the scanner. 
 
It’s always nice to have something to read while waiting for a flight, but it can be somewhat hectic to store your 
reading material when the flight is called. We designed the Atlas with a quick-access magazine slot to easily slip 
your reading material right back into the bag. The slot is placed at the front of the backpack so you can stash your 
magazine when boarding, and quickly retrieve it again when you’re seated. Thoughtful details throughout the Atlas 
help to make your travel more enjoyable.
 
When your backpack is fully loaded it can get heavy, so we engineered a 5-point balance strap system to ergonomically
distribute the weight and reduce muscle strain. With two pillow-soft straps adjustable at the shoulders, two 
quick-slide straps at the bottom and one across the chest, you have total control over weight distribution. This 
allows for balanced comfort, even when the backpack is full. The Atlas’ ergonomically designed carry system also 
has a padded lumbar support with mesh padding to provide maximum air circulation for breathability. The Atlas: 
highly functional, cool comfort.
 
When traveling with many bags, the trolley handle 
pass-through on the back of the Atlas allows you 
to double your efforts. Simply slip the Atlas onto 
the handle of your luggage and you’re ready to 
wheel through the airport.
 
Don’t let dangling straps make you look disheveled. 
The strap-management system we designed for the Atlas 
allows you to adjust each strap to just the right length, 
and slide the strap clip to keep the straps from dangling, 
keeping you looking neat and professional.
 
All EVERKI interiors are stylish, high-contrast orange 
because we know how frustrating it is to mistakenly 
leave a compartment unzipped, and how difficult it 
is to organize against a black background. 
Savvy and Stylish.
 
Have you ever broken a zipper on your favorite bag? 
We have. That’s why we designed the Atlas using 
heavy duty zippers with extra large metal pulls.  
So your favorite bag can remain your favorite bag.

I have accumulated many laptop bags and this Atlas is very good. A little tight for a 17.3 laptop, but fits in snug. I do travel a good amount and the features are spot on. I might suggest just three possible adjustments to the bag.

One, a shallow storm flap that discretely is out of the way unless you need it over the newspaper/magazine area if the rain comes up.

Two, tasteful side compression straps to compress the bag when you don't have a full load and you want to make the bag and contents more stable.

Three, pen and business card pocket in the front flap. When loaded the middle area isn't as accessable as the front area.

Other thoughts:
The side pocket for a water bottle is limited to smaller bottles but that keeps the profile sleek.

RFID protection for the front pocket.

A discreet rain cover over the length of the coil zippers helps keep out the elements

A inner sleeve pocket in the magazine area sized for boarding passes. Keeps boarding passes from falling out when you pull out your newspaper or magazine.

In the meantime, I'll see if there is a rain cover for downpour situations and can figure out a way to control shifting load.

You have a great bag already. Perhaps these ideas may help the innovation and organization of the bag. I'll watch for these features in the future.

Regards, RVN

I purchased my Atlas backpack over 3 years ago and love all the storage, PC protection, easy thru TSA, lots of places to store smaller things, and the sleeve to easily transport it with my roll aboard. I experienced a small stress tear and Everki promptly replaced the bag. Awesome service! They really stand behind a great product.

I recently bought as Atlas. I was concerned as to which backpack to buy because I travel for boat deliveries carrying a Tough Book lap top which is thicker than an average lap top. I also have several other navigation and communication devices. Andrea at customer service went out of her way by mocking up my lap top with wooden blocks, inserting them into the various back packs I was considering, photographed them, then emailed me the photos. Because of this I was able to purchase the right one with confidence. I haven't dealt with customer service this good in a vey long time. I look forward to using my new bag soon. D Berg, New Zealand

I saw this backpack on line as I needed something more robust, organized and easier to carry. Received as a gift this year. I just had my first trip using the Atlas and it was a travel changing experience. As I entered the security screening line, I did not need to fumble for my computer to get it out of by old back pack and put everything back together. It went through the screening just as advertised. Unzip, layout, done. Awesome experience. It fit perfectly under the seat in front of me and the comfort was amazing.

Top quality laptop bag chocked full of thoughtful functionality.

Chose this bag after consulting with their customer service pro. Helpful, friendly and flexible.

The bag itself is mid-sized, slightly larger than the Versa, and made with high quality materials. I can tell that the team that designed this had a business professional or student squarely in mind. I appreciate the quality and thoughtful details.

The Atlas is a great product. Always amazed at how much space it has. Definitely has pockets or compartments for just about anything you might need. Even large enough for use as an overnight bag on short trips. Everki customer service is outstanding. My bag got was damaged after a few years of use, and they stepped up and took care of the problem without compromise. Highly recommend the product and the company!

I bought my Atlas backpack nearly two years ago. It has been a great purchase. I was looking for a high quality backpack for business but didn't want to spend $500+. I travel frequently on 2-3 day trips and this backpack plus a small carry-on is everything I need. Great organization for comfortably carrying laptop, tablet, accessories, documents, and other supplies. I'm a lawyer and travel with a lot of documents. The separate storage in the large compartment is great for putting a red rope or other docs so that they don't get beat up. I like all the different pre-designed pockets. Makes it easy to stay organized.

The only downside I have experienced is in the bottom corners of the laptop compartment. I started to notice cracks on the corners of my laptop case. I realized it was from dropping my backpack on the ground with my laptop in it or sliding my laptop into the laptop compartment while the bag was on the ground. Some added protection around the bottom corners of the laptop compartment would improve this, but it is a minor issue. No real damage to my laptop. I put a small amount of foam at the bottom of the compartment and haven't had anymore issues. Other than that, there is some minor tearing in the bottom corners of the laptop compartment but hasn't hurt function at all.

I use mine every day, even when not traveling. For the price, and two years of heavy use, that is very minor wear and tear.

My kids bought me this new Atlas backpack for my birthday . They said I needed one that was a bit more business and a lot less Fraternaty. I am amazed at the high quality parts used to assemble this bag... The zippers are larger than the norm, so they glide with no effort! Access to every compartment is visible as soon as its unzipped! My laptop sits so snugly , it doesn't move .125 of an inch as I walk! The orange color of th interior makes it simple to decipher and find what your looking for.... The best part of this bag isn't even mentioned in the advertisements. It stands upright by itself! A personnel filling cabinet!! An outstanding product, great engineering with exceptional parts and materials!! I'm about to buy two more for my twins about to enter graduate school!

This is a great product. Well made and durable. This is a VERY minor issue, it would be nice to have more than two pen/pencil holders. Having a total of 4-5 pencil/pen holders with a closed bottoms on it would make this a perfect business travel backpack.

I have owned the Atlas for about 4 months now. For my job I travel quite a bit to different schools presenting about Career Technical Education. I pack a 13" laptop, a couple 100 flyers, a couple 100 brochures, iPad, Apple TV, cords, Nalgene water bottle, and other accessories. All of it fits very nicely and there seems to be plenty of space for cords, pens, and extras. The pockets aren't specifically set up for AV cards, etc. but that does not seem to be a problem. The Nalgene bottle does not fit on the side of the pack but I can fit my coffee container on the side and I don't worry about it spilling. The sunglass area is a nice addition. I put breakfast bars and candy there. My 13" laptop fits just fine and is seems secure. However, I would not want to drop the pack from a high distance as there isn't a lot of padding underneath it. The pack appears very well made, solid, and while it is a bigger bag (fits up to a 17" laptop) I feel comfortable wearing it while I am wearing a tie. It looks nice and I do not feel out of place wearing it to meetings, etc. The bag feels bigger because it is taller. Not sure how it relates to the Concept in terms of size. I have only one poor complaint. I am 6'2" and can not cinch up the pack to fit tight up on my shoulders. It rides low and rubs on my belt, which can be a little uncomfortable. That is the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Other than that I love the pack and will use it for many years.

Excellent, full featured TSA-friendly backpack. Two features that I find particularly useful are room for a laptop and a tablet in either side of the "clamshell" opening so dealing with airport security doesn't involve taking either out of my bag -- and the soft felt pocket at the top of the bag for sticking my phone and watch into before I go through security. Great bag!

This was large purchase for me, and the most I have ever spent on a backpack, and I DO NOT regret the purchase! My husband convinced me to purchase a high quality backpack, so after 6 months+ of research to find the best backpack on the market, I found Everki was the best, and the Atlas fit my needs perfectly. I commute to work by train everyday and my Everki Atlas has been a GREAT friend to me. I was previously using a very old backpack and it was making my lower back hurt, after the first day of using my new Everki backpack my back felt better, and after a week I had no pain at ALL. If you are considering a new backpack, this one or any of the Everki backpacks would be awsome. If the price is holding you back don't let it, as you can see Everki has a lifetime warranty on all their backpacks, when you choose your Everki backpack, you are choosing outstanding quality and customer service, once you have used an Everki backpack, you will never go back to another brand!! I love my Everki backpack and would not trade it for the world!!!

Simply love this product and fully recommend it!
I have been using this backpack for almost 6 months now. I have used a number of other brands before, and never really found what I was looking for.
This has changed completely with my purchase of the Atlas EKP121 ! To list what I specifically like : it stands up loaded or not, extremely well manufactured, great big zippers, the suitcase handle pass-through, loads of well designed, soft and cushioned places to store things (at the beginning you need to get everything well organized in order to find it easily and quickly back), cell-phone or sunglasses storage compartment on the top, zipped side pockets, and probably also the Checkpoint friendly design, extremely easy to load/unload the pc. However, checkpoints in Europe don't seem to allow the portable to keep sitting inside the backpack, even when it's completely folded flat with the CP friendly system.. So a plus that turns out to be not even a minus, let's hope airports here catch up with the US counterparts.
The only 'minus' that I could think of is that the backpack can hold such an amazing amount of things (computer, headphones, iPad, mobile, documents, chargers, cables, waterbottle, you just name it), that sometimes I tend to 'overload' it, basically overloading my own back. But again, that's not to be seen as negative, far from that ! I'm convinced that the Atlas will stay my business travel companion for many years to come, unless Everki would come with an Atlas in some other nice colour than black...thàt maybe is the only downturn I could find.
Last but not least, extremely good customer service, emailed a couple of questions before my purchase, and they came back in a no time with professional advice and answers.
So, 5 stars for my backpack, and for Everki and a big recommendation !

BEST BAG I HAVE EVER OWNED
As a mechanical engineer I travel to and work in a wide variety of site conditions. This bag has taken a constant beating during the seven months I have owned it and so far I have not one issue with this bag. This bag is durable, lets me pack a large amount of gear and it looks great. Perfect for airline travel. First trip I took with this bag was a two week cruise ship dry dock rehab in Spain. This bag was a lifesaver. I had no issues with flight security check points. My bag fit in all the plane bins, even on the smaller European flights. Bag is adjustable, comfortable and offers good protection of my laptop, kindle, phone, etc. while providing plenty of pockets for my other "stuff". This backpack is well crafted from good quality materials. Buy it and you will not be disappointed. Dell Latitude 17".

I have owned this bag for just about one year. It is one of the best business packs I have ever carried. I finally switched from a Tumi shoulder style bag I carried for 15 years (2 bags exact same during that time.) This bag is sturdy and extremely well built...only flaw is a hole in a main part of the bag that was very small when I first received it - might be where a tag was inserted with a plastic fastener but has gotten bigger over time as it is in a stress point. I was initially concerned that it would not hold enough...I almost returned it before packing it up for the first time. It holds FAR MORE than the Tumis I previously used. I now travel with a tablet, MacBook Air, HP Laptop, two cell phones, accessories and personal items. Only thing I don't like is that -- like any backpack style bag -- it doesn't carry files or paper well. Those items are awkwardly fitted in where possible and usually get abused by the other items in the bag. Overall this bag holds a LOT and I am glad I switched. I will be surprised if it lasts 5-7 years like the Tumis did, but would definitely recommend this as a day-to-day business pack with a large capacity for someone who wants a backpack style bag.

I was concerned about buying a back pack over the internet without actually having it in my hand. Now that I have the bag all my concerns have evaporated. The back pack is very well made with the finest materials. The compartments and access are very well thought out and must have been designed by a user! Actually this is the best bag for me that I have every seen and I looked a lot.

I finally road-tested my Atlas backpack this weekend. Have to say, it was pretty awesome. It's surprisingly roomy - I could fit my tablet, Ultrabook laptop, chargers/ cords, papers like my itinerary and confirmation, glasses and sunglasses, a decent collection of pens, my noise-cancelling headphones and still had room inside for an almost 600 page hardcover book. Plus the pocket on the outside for a magazine or newspaper. The bag fit pretty easily under the seat on most of my flights - the only slight exception being one long-haul international flight where the under-seat space was reduced by the onboard entertainment system. (This seems to be a problem more on older planes where the system was retrofitted in - wasn't an issue on the Airbus A340-600 I took back.) The trolley strap was a great benefit when schlepping through a large European hub airport. I cannot say enough good things about this bag. It will be my go-to for travel, and I'm even debating about using it for everyday instead of the messenger bag I got a few years ago.

This is the most awesome backpack that I've ever owned. There are however a few minor quibbles:

1. The worst part of this backpack is the handle and because you pick up your backpack by the handle every day it is reminder of the fact that this one part sucks. Make it feel good in your hand, please.

2. The laptop area has a secondary tablet compartment. It is not tall enough for an iPad Pro. Increase the height by 3 inches and that is fixed.

3. Would be nice to have more pockets. Use the opposite front facing side of the bag to add a few more.

4. The key chain hook is in the wrong place. It is right over the business card pockets and sure to tear up cards. Just move it over to the other side. There is a zippered compartment there where it wont hurt anything. Also the hook could be a little better, perhaps deeper divot, so it will keep keys from falling off.

5. If you are shooting for perfection, then the zippers need to have separate pulls for right and left so the word "Everki" faces in. A really minor quibble but perfection should be the goal. Left and right facing zipper pulls will show the kind of attention to detail this bag deserves.

Overall a really awesome bag in so many ways. I'm very happy, but I hope Everki listens so they can make this bag perfect.

Upgraded from the Everki Beacon because I wanted more compartments to organize everything I use. I have been using this bag for about 7 months and its an amazing bag! Everki's lifetime warranty is the reason why I chose another everki bag! Excellent customer service in the warranty department. This bag is great for college/university students who like to carry around their laptops and tablets. It has every pocket for every item you carry. Plus the water proofing is a huge bonus. Great job in making such an excellent product! I will be using this bag for years.

I am audio engineer and having a backpack that is not only awesome looking, but it has to be durable, and finding Everki-Atlas is my treasure. Thanks to Andrea from Everki, who helped me choose the right backpack without getting one that is too oversize to carry around when traveling and running events was a lifesaver!

This has been one of the most best backpack i have ever owe, and i have used many backpacks having lived in Singapore, China, and USA.
I was very impressed when i first received my Atlas, and other backups in this price range do not even come close to what Atlas offers me. It fits and helps me organize all my gadgets, connectors, laptop, and there's always enough space more for my audio equipment. Atlas is well built, well designed, well rounded, and can even handle my traveling gear. Atlas is just an amazing helper when i am on the road or off-road.

The feature that allows Atlas to sit through the handle of a suitcase was just so easy to get around with at the airport ... i am still enjoying my Atlas till today and will recommend it to anyone looking into a good lasting and backpack that packs amazing awesomeness!

When I bought this bag, it looks perfect, everything is nice. However, after my first trip with this bag, I got an issue with so called "5-Point Balance Strap System", that is one adjustable strap (right side) lost, I even don't know where it gone. I realize that the design approach of two red slide buckles is week, and not reliable, probably not been tested. because I have not use this bag heavily. Now I don't know how can I fix this, the parts looks very unique. Hope I could get the adjustable strap as part for fixing this defect.

The product seems to be made from good material and the stitching looks solid. I have went through, over, and under, this back and I found no signs of loose stitching. The zippers are quality. I have a 17" laptop that fits "Snug" so I may decide to return this and order the Titan which looks to be slightly bigger. I'm not sure what the difference in them is besides the size, but if the Titan pack has as many compartments to store stuff in then it's good to go. Over all if your packing for a 72 hour hike the Atlas is probably not what your looking for. However if your a student lugging around your laptop books and everything else that students carry, this back would be a great fit. It's got enough room for any gear you might carry for an over night stay. I am a Marine Veteran and this is my opinion.

Chiamarlo zaino, una volta tenuto in mano, può sembrare riduttivo. Appena lo si guarda da subito l'idea di sicurezza ed al tatto si nota subito la robustezza e l'ottima fattura. Non si sono risparmiati in niente: l'organizzazione delle tasche la ritengo essenziale e a quanto pare è uno dei loro innumerevoli punti forti. Il gancino per le chiavi è semplice e funzionale, tanto da poter attaccare e staccare le stesse con una sola mano. La tasca per il notebook è abbastanza imbottita da poter appoggiarlo in terra senza quell'attenzione che con altri zaini invece è doverosa. Potrei star qui ad elogiare molte altre caratteristiche tipo le tasche fatte in modo da poter vedere cosa c'è dentro senza aprirle, ma lascio a voi il piacere di scoprirne l'utilità giorno per giorno. Che altro dire?! Sono completamente soddisfatto dell'acquisto di questo ottimo prodotto; non a caso scrivendo "miglior zaino per notebook" su Google, nelle immagini, tra i primi risultati, compaiono gli zaini Everki.

I am happy with the quality of the backpack. Material used is definitely premium. Now, the reason I bought this was because of the checkpoint-friendly function that this backpack offers as I travel on a monthly basis and I mostly travel in the Asia Pacific Region out from Singapore. I have to comment that most of the airport checkpoint still require you to remove the laptop out from the backpack despite of the checkpoint-friendly design the backpack has. If i am given another chance to purchase another Everki Backpack, I will definitely get the trolley version instead of the not usable checkpoint-friendly design. For that, I will rate it 3-star.
