The Mobile Edge EVO Backpack has replaced all my other carry-on options in one fell swoop. My biggest gripe with most tech-luggage options… Pockets/compartments or rather, the glaring lack of enough of them of the right size, place and function. The EVO offers 16 compartments for a wide variety of specific purposes: There’s the main laptop sleeve, of course, sufficient to hold/protect laptops up to 16”/17” models.
There are also easily-accessible slots to hold typically-sized USB drives and memory cards, protected pockets suitable for both business cards and smaller electronics, a roomy dedicated media pocket with cable-ports for MP3 players or smartphones, holders for pens and pencils; a rugged moisture-resistant bottom panel protecting the main compartment; five good-sized, zippered outer compartments (one of which is specifically designed to ready access to bottled drinks of various sizes); and two secure outer mesh pockets for the small stuff you grab and stash most as you make your way through the airport, outside the hotel, into the dark, foreboding woods or what have you.
It’s all intelligently designed around a main interior space just big enough for a couple-day trip, and the straps are strong and comfy, with yet another secure mesh pocket right there, for yet another radio/phone/gadget, you techno-junkie, you.
