If you’re after a simple, lightweight and slim laptop backpack, then the Kensington Triple Trek is a good fit for your needs. The exterior is durable and the inner fleeced lining is soft.

It has a rather straightforward and humble design which is great as a professional, and even though it doesn’t look like it, the Triple Trek laptop backpack has an impressive amount of compartments for such a slim design.

The compartments that most interested me was the top pocket that’s ideal for storing cables, chargers, other accessories or just things that you need quick access to. There’s also a cleverly hidden zip pocket along the right rear of the backpack.

Another feature that’s not really noticeable on first glance is the luggage handle slide through at the lower rear of the backpack – definitely a useful bonus if you’re travelling with it.

Dimensions29.7 x 46 x 15.5 cm

Built for durability and security, the Swiss Gear SWA2205D men’s laptop backpack has a large 21.35 litre capacity for those who like to carry a lot. It has a layered design meaning that its form gets bigger towards the back, and both of the largest compartments can be locked with a padlock.

Essentially, it has 3 main compartments which consists of:

  • An empty medium front section that’s ideal for quick access items
  • A middle compartment that has pockets and slots for accessories. This compartment also contains an RFID blocking pocket to prevent identity theft.
  • The main compartment that houses a laptop pocket which though well padded, it’s quite spacious in there so most laptops would need to be secure via the velcro strap.

The Swiss Gear SWA2205D laptop backpack doesn’t adopt a slim profile so if you’re going to buy it, be aware that it can get quite bulky particularly if it were to be full. It also helps significantly that it has a decent amount of back padding for comfort, and it does have an excellent price point so great if you’re on a budget.

You can instantly tell that the Targus Voyager laptop backpack with travel and toughness in mind; thick rubber zipper pull ends, double buckle clips for top flapover, large back padding and molle straps are all elements of this versatile laptop backpack.

There are plenty of different compartments that are well protected, though looking at the size of the backpack, I expected it to be a bit more spacious than it is. In hindsight, it makes sense that because there are more compartments, more material is required thus taking up more space.

If you’re always outdoors, then you’d be glad to hear that it has a rainproof cover stowed away in the underside compartment of the backpack. All-in-all, the Targus Voyager is one of the better laptop backpacks for travel due to its amount of compartments and durability.

The Under Armour Hustle II is a far cry from the professional business style laptop backpacks featured on this list. It adopts a sporty and casual design that’s ideal for school, college, university and travellers.

The backpack is surrounded with a water resistant fabric while the bottom is supported with an extra layer of abrasion resistant fabric.

The laptop pocket has a good amount of padding towards the front and back with an ample amount of storage space in front of it. In the other main compartment, there’s just as much space while the two medium front compartments serve to store accessories.

With a wide range of colours and styles to choose from and a fully functional and comfortable construction, it’s hard to be disappointed with the Under Armour Hustle II Laptop Backpack, for the purpose of simple carrying.

The Samsonite Classic 2 TSA Laptop Backpack for men looks very neat and slick, and the kind of backpack that you’d take with you on frequent business trips.

It has a box like design that can stand upright even when empty that’s useful for packing and emptying, and a top faux leather handle which is soft and supple. Though there’s padding to support your back, the area of it is less than what’s seen on other backpacks.

There are two highlights on the Samsonite Classic 2 TSA – the first is the TSA laptop compartment that folds flat for an easier journey through the airport security. There’s a quality velcro strap used to secure your laptop within its compartment, but there’s not much space for anything else when zipped up.

The second highlight is the RFID pocket that’s located in the front card holder compartment. Here’s where you should keep your wallet, credit cards, passports or anything else with an RFID chip.

For professionals, office workers and business travellers, the Samsonite Classic 2 TSA laptop backpack for men is a top choice and one that will not break the bank.

Weight1.1 kg
Dimensions43.8 x 31 x 21 cm

Adopting a style that’s a cross between a professional and rugged outdoor laptop backpack, the Samsonite Luggage Xenon 2 is spacious, versatile and comfortable.

The red accents that can be seen on the zipper pullers and straps encompassing the backpack, adds to the style of the backpack. Some people prefer an all black style, but I think it’s a nice finishing touch.

It has a fold flat checkpoint friendly laptop compartment with a velcro strap secure, and a large mesh pocket in front of that. The bulk of your items will be stored in the main compartment where there’s a divided section for books and magazines, and a larger space for bulkier items.

The 3 front compartments are extremely useful for quick access items, and there’s even a neoprene tablet pocket in the accessories compartment. The Samsonite Luggage Xenon 2 has enough padding in all the right places – the back, the shoulder straps and the top carry handle. These serve to provide optimum comfort and support for the user.

Everki Beacon Laptop Backpack Reviewed Canada

Total Compartments• 2 Main
• 2 Side Pockets
• 1 Small Front
• 1 Hidden Pocket
Weight1.6 kg
Dimensions43 x 16 x 53 cm
WarrantyLimited Lifetime

Designed and built for the true travelling gamer, the Everki Beacon Laptop Backpack delivers exceptional practicality and ergonomics, and surprisingly at a reasonably price point too.

As expected, this backpack is big; it’s taller than the majority of other men’s laptop backpacks but has opted to maintain a slim profile. This is one of the reasons why it feels comfortable on your back despite its large size.

There is really just one main compartment which is the front one, and it offers plenty of space as this is where a games console is supposed to be stored in the included console case. Without the games console, it leaves a great amount of room for other contents.

There are 6 accessory pockets here for mouses, hard drives, cables, adapters; you name it. Because the front cover extends out, you won’t have to worry about all your things being squashed together.

At the rear compartment there’s a large soft lined dedicated laptop compartment which can hold up to 18 inch laptops. The chances are, if you’re not a gamer then you probably won’t be carrying around a laptop that big, which leaves room for other slim items.

There are a few other smaller zipper compartments also, but there’s so much that can be said about the Everki Beacon that it really deserves its own article. Its weather resistant cover and bottom padding deserves a mention too.

If you’re a serious gamer, then you’re going to love the Everki Beacon, but even if you’re not, you’ll still find that it offers tremendous functionality.

The first thing to note is that the Samsonite Tectonic 2 comes in a medium and large size; this short review will be based on the medium size which is only slightly smaller but looks twice as good.

It doesn’t have any orange accents as seen on its bigger brother but it looks more orderly and more suited to a business environment.

Some of the more impressive features to note is that there’s a large tablet pocket located in the front accessories compartment, the top carry handle is wide, chunky and feels nice to hold, and there’s an excellently placed quick access compartment just above the accessories compartment.

The diamond ripstop material encompassing specific areas of the backpack adds a nice touch of style and more importantly, durability.

If you’re looking for a men’s laptop backpack that’s multi-functional and offers excellent value for money, this is it. You get a multitude of spacious compartments and a bunch of practical elements that make up a well rounded backpack.

The rear laptop and tablet compartment is large, well padded and has a plastic rim that stops water from getting in, while the main compartment has a great amount of room for clothes and folders. The top and side zipper pockets may look small, but they’re actually pretty deep and spacious too.

Some other useful features include the buckle closures at the sides and on the shoulder straps which compresses and secure the backpack, and the large back panel opening that allows a luggage handle to slide through; the build of this section is a lot better than the single strap seen on many other laptop backpacks.

My only gripe is that when the backpack is fully loaded to the brim, the front of the bag protrudes out which sometimes causes it to fall down face first. Regardless, the Swiss Gear SWA9855C laptop backpack for men is still the perfect choice for road warriors on a tight budget.

The Samsonite Tectonic Laptop Backpack For Men is big, mean and military-grade. The bright red accents that are laced throughout the exterior and interior coupled with the grey lining at the bottom half gives the bag such a bad ass appearence that catches the eyes of passerbys.

One of the outstanding features of the Samsonite Tectonic is the checkpoint friendly laptop compartment which folds completely flat to get through airport security quicker and easier. But what seperates this from other backpacks that have the same feature is that a laptop can enter through the side or top opening as opposed to just the top. This extra convenience is a godsend for when you’re in a rush.

I also love the quick access small pouch compartment at the top of the backpack that offers slightly more reinforcement to protect valuables from getting crushed.

With a backpack this big, there’s no shortage of padding on the back, though the shoulder straps can do with a bit more. Despite this, the Tectonic by Samsonite is still a joy to carry around and offers decent capacity, hard wearing construction and superb aesthetics.

Let me begin by saying that the Timbuk2 Q Laptop Backpack is not for everyone when it comes to design and style. It takes on a rectangular form that may look a bit too “square” for some people. However, if you’re a “tech geek” enthusiast, then the plethora of different compartments should satisfy your needs.

Due to its rectangular design, you’re able to fit more larger items inside such as big binders and folders. It has a checkpoint friendly, fully padded and lined quilted tricot fabric laptop compartment that feels soft and will surely prevent your laptop from getting scratched.

The interesting thing about the Timbuk2 Q is the different placements of the various compartments. It takes on an unconventional approach so it may feel a bit unusual accessing your items at first, but as you get used to where everything is located, it’s quick, fun and easy.

Because of its quirky design and unconventional style, the Timbuk2 Q Laptop Backpack is more aimed towards students rather than professionals, though the latter will find the backpack useful too.

Here’s one of the sleekest and most organised laptop backpacks I’ve ever come across. It achieves this look not by being flashy, but by adopting a uniform and android like construction.

Its solid black metal zippers compliments the enigmatic style of the bag and can be locked via a wired padlock, and the top carry handle is reinforced with metal rivets and plastic casing which makes it extra durable.

Towards the back is the checkpoint friendly TSA laptop compartment with good padding, though the velcro strap could have been made to close a bit tighter. The middle main compartment is the most spacious and contain two dividers and a small storage pouch, and the front where the accessories are stored, which is zips down low so you can fit more things inside.

The two side pockets offer relatively decent amount of space as it goes deep at the bottom and top. The back also provides a comfortable amount of padding with space for air to travel through. There’s also a thick padded slot for a luggage handle.

The Victoriatourist V6002 men’s laptop backpack looks a lot more expensive than it actually is. You’d be pleased to know that it cost less than most of the models on our list, and better than plenty of the models on the Canadian market.

At first glance, the Thule Crossover TCBP-217 looks beastly and something that’s built to last, and that’s exactly what it’s designed for. If you carry a lot of valuables, then this bag will protect them.

Even though it’s marketed towards holding Macbooks, its elevated laptop compartment (doesn’t touch the ground to prevent damage) can of course hold any type of laptop, and there’s even a tablet sleeve attached to the laptop compartment that snugly fits a large tablet. Also within the laptop compartment are two pockets for your computer accessories.

Other notable features includes the top crush proof compartment that’s designed to house valuables such as a mobile phone or expensive sunglasses.

While it’s not really a compartment in the conventional sense, there’s an open section behind the front compartment that’s secured by two adjustable side straps. You probably won’t want to keep any valuables here, but it’s ideal for stuffing a sweater or thin jacket.

In terms of looks, the Thule Crossover TCBP-217 laptop backpack caters more towards a gaming and outdoor travel audience rather than an office worker, though anyone who wants their belongings to remain safe and secure will benefit.

The Ogio Luggage Renegade RSS is another rugged and durable laptop backpack that can take a beating. Though the above Thule Crossover TCBP-217 gives this bag a run for its money, the Renegade RSS surpasses it when it comes to storage versatility and protection.

  • The RSS (Reactive Suspension System) which elevates your laptop to prevent damage should you drop the bag
  • The HUB (Hybrid Unibody Backpanel) which is designed for comfort and protection against your laptop. This also has a decent amount of padding at the top and bottom for your shoulders and lower back.
  • A crush resistant vault that stores valuables (smaller than the one on the Thule Crossover TCBP-217)

The other compartments to note is the other top quick access pocket, the 4 zipper side pockets which are big enough to hold large phones and drinking bottles, the padded tablet compartment and the front accessories compartment.
