Low profile laptop backpack from BUILT



Gear bags are all the rage these days, most sporting voluminous cc’s of storage space and a plethora of pockets and compartments for storing our gadgety goodies.  The BUILT Laptop Backpack follows a bit different philosophy.  Looking like a cross between a sport parachute pack and a bullet-proof vest, this über slim and contoured carrier is minimalism at its finest.  Made from lightweight, water resistant neoprene with a breathable mesh back panel, it features 3 compartments: on the back, a larger main one for your portable electronic baby and a smaller one for essential accessories, with the third located on a shoulder strap for easy access to tunes, etc.  Also has an adjustable sternum strap.  Available in black, olive and orange and in medium (up to 15″ laptops) and large (up to 17″ laptops), each for $80.00.

    That looks so much like a bulletproof vest that in some areas I’d be afraid to wear it in public!

    (Incidentally, my dad wears a blackberry in a belt holster on his hip. He was asked once in a deli if he was “packing heat”. So combine this backback with a phone holster and you could have an, uh, interesting experience depending on who you spend time with).

    I have one like this and it is awesome! i love the ‘thin’ look and the material.

    indeed as Carly said, the running joke at my work is that i have a bullet proof vest! 🙂

    It would protect you from arrows and some knives if a riot got out (that’s with like the new MacBook).
