My husband has the original SLIM backpack that holds up to a 15″ MacBook that he used for both his personal 11″ MacBook Air and his 15″ MacBook Pro from work. The new version, the SLIM XL 17″ Backpack from Cocoon Innovations is just as sleek and organized as his smaller bag, but it holds up to a 17″ laptop. It has a padded laptop sleeve that measures 11.8″ X 1.4″ X 13.8″ and a tablet pocket. It also has a large front pocket with a built-in 18.5″ X 12.25″ GRID-IT! organizer panel with woven elastic bands that can organize all the smaller gadgets and accessories you need for the day. There are also other exterior zippered pockets for small items you want quick access to, interior pockets for documents or books, and exterior mesh pockets for a water bottle or umbrella. The SLIM XL has a water-resistant nylon exterior and waterproof zippers to protect your gear. It also has a grab handle, padded back and shoulder straps, and a sternum strap for your convenience and comfort. The SLIM XL is available only in black. You can pre-order it now for $99.99 from Cocoon Innovations.
