The Beacon is EVERKI’s rugged and spacious backpack for giant laptops. This sporty and super-comfortable backpack is perfect for carrying multiple devices, textbooks, and even the beefiest laptop in the ultra-soft, padded and felt-lined compartment. It also comes with a dedicated sleeve for your gaming console. And, the Beacon still has room in the main compartment for your cords, power bricks, external USB’s and books. Although the Beacon is roomy enough for an 18-inch laptop and all your peripherals, it maintains a slim shape with its slanted front profile. Ruggedly constructed to withstand the rigors of travel, commute or university, the Beacon will be your traveling companion for years to come.
Yes, the Beacon has lots of large compartments, but that’s not all that makes it so innovative. We’ve designed intuitive spaces for smart organization, buckles and straps positioned for on-the-fly adjustments, and additional front pockets for fingertip access. The dedicated laptop compartment is roomy enough for the most behemoth 18-inch laptop, and in the main storage area, you’ll find a large zippered pocket, dividers, and an assortment of multifunction accessory slots. A clever buckle system allows the main compartment to open halfway for quick access or a full 180 degrees for easy loading; and quick access hip pockets are easily accessible without having to remove the bag from your back. The Beacon – manage big loads with ease.
Gaming console protection
We created the Beacon with the serious gamer in mind. Its main front compartment opens to reveal a fully removable padded sleeve large enough to comfortably fit a Wii, Xbox, or PS series console. The sleeve fits neatly in the main compartment without affecting the ability to carry a laptop, and still leaves room for documents and a few accessories. Additional interior pockets let you keep control of items like cables, chargers, and mouse. Efficiently carry what you need for any gaming expedition.
We go the extra mile to protect your valuables from the elements, because there’s no telling when you will find yourself stuck in inclement weather with expensive gear on your back. The Beacon’s bottom pocket contains a water-resistant weather cover that stretches to neatly slip over the entire exposed surface of the bag and protects your equipment and documents against rain, snow, or dust. The covering easily detaches to allow for convenient cleaning and drying and can be quickly replaced when you’re ready for your next adventure.
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 straps that adjust at the shoulders, 2 quick-slide straps at the bottom and one across the chest, you have total control over weight distribution. This allows you balanced comfort, even when your backpack is full. The Beacon’s ergonomically designed carry system also boasts a padded back panel with mesh padding and airflow channels to provide maximum air circulation for breathability. The Beacon – cool comfort, total control.
Easy-lift dual handles
Manage your burden with ease with the Beacon’s dual handles, located at the top and the lower front side of the bag to allow you to conveniently get a grip on your bag and more easily maneuver it for packing and unpacking.
Cables tangled around your backpack straps? No more. The Beacon’s shoulder straps provide a means to temporarily hang sunglasses and headphones. They work with the side pocket’s cable outlet to route cables and prevent breakage due to tangling.
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.
Durable zippers and metal pulls
Have you ever broken a zipper on your favorite bag? We have. That’s why we designed the Beacon using durable zippers and metal pulls. So your favorite bag can remain your favorite bag.

onFirst, the good: I love the laptop compartment and the huge gaming system compartment. This is the first backpack that I have seen easily hold my huge laptop and the padding seems great. I really wish I could enjoy it like the other reviewers here.
Unfortunately, this backpack is not designed to work for people with breasts. The chest strap cannot be adjusted high enough to sit above them. Also, I don't know if it is just because I cannot put the 5-system to proper use, but the straps seem to be too narrowly placed on the connection behind my neck? They rub horribly.
Also, it would be really nice if there were an actual water bottle holder. The little strap thing + zipper combination they have going on doesn't work at all.Thank you for your feedback! You already voted Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again

onOn a normal basis, I walk 2+ miles to and from school through all sorts of weather. I used to carry my laptop in a messenger style bag with all my books and binders in another back pack, which was all good and well while I was at a community college, and not walking too far. Now that I am at MSU, and walk everywhere I figured it would be a good idea to get everything into one bag. The laptop I carry on a daily basis, is an ASUS G73, which is a hefty machine to carry, plus my books as well. I have never had a backpack support the weight so well. The beacon supports the weight in a way nothing else I have ever had even comes close to doing, and in that manner I am very pleased. I am also very please with the chest strap and rain cover which really come in handy. The only problem I have had, is within a month the bag started to fall apart, the bottom fell out, and the left strap was starting to rip. I contacted customer support, sent a few photos, and now I have another bag already on the way here. I have never had such a good experience with customer support from any company before. They really stand by their product, and I am pleased to say, that they have earned themselves a lifelong customer. From now on I will only buy Everki bags, I mean who can beat a life time warranty, on a product that is so superb.Thank you for your feedback! You already voted Sorry, we failed to record your vote.

- Wow Wow Wow
onWow Wow Wow, best laptop bag I've ever owned. I had my Everki for 3 years. Loved it so much I was about to buy a new one since this one had the central clip not fitting securely anymore. Then I remembered about the lifetime warranty. The team sent me a replacement no dramas, right away. Super friendly, just incredible. My wife was so impressed that she is getting one for herself (maybe a travel version).Thank you for your feedback! You already voted Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again
- Fantastic Bag and fantastic customer service!!!
onFantastic Bag and fantastic customer service. Bought this bag approx. 8 years ago and it was starting to come apart. Ive used this bag a lot over the years and it is of amazing quality. I contacted the company asking for information on what could be done, and BOOM! With some proof and information, Paul was happy to send me a replacement. Massively happy customer and it appears im a life long customer now! This one will probably last much longer too.
Thank you Paul and Everki, you have done this customer a great service!
Anyone who is umming and arring over this bag, just get it for goodness sake, it is worth it!
- Excellent bag, and excellent costumer service.
onExcellent bag, and excellent costumer service. After almost 7 years of use I got the bag replaced by a very comprehensive warranty service. I'm very happy with the product.
