Beacon Laptop Backpack w/Gaming Console Sleeve, Fits up to 18"
Flight Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack

Rugged and stylish, the Beacon is designed for comfort even with heavy loads and harsh conditions. An ultra-soft, padded laptop compartment deftly protects and carries up to 18" laptops while still leaving enough room in the main compartment for a gaming console and accessories. Comfort and balance are maintained, even under heavy loads, thanks to the Beacon's 5-point balance strap system and aero-flow padded back and shoulder harness.

The spacious main storage compartment features a large zippered pocket, dividers, and an assortment of multifunction accessory slots. A clever buckle system allows the compartment to open halfway for quick access or a full 180 degrees for easy loading. Gamers will appreciate the inclusion of a dedicated sleeve for taking a gaming console (XBox 360, PS3, or Wii) on the road.

Dual hip pockets provide extra storage and quick access to important items like keys, mobile phone, or a media player without taking the bag off. A zippered outer pocket and a quick-stash slot provide additional easy-access storage.

To keep your valuable contents protected in all weather conditions, the Beacon has an integrated stow-away water-resistant weather cover for use in sand, snow, rain, or dust.

As with all Everki products, the Flight is backed by Everki’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and world-class customer service.

Flight Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack

Features

1. Water-Resistant Weather Cover

Everki goes 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 protect your documents and equipment against rain, snow, dust, or spilled drinks.  The nylon covering easily detaches to allow for convenient cleaning and drying and can be quickly replaced when you are ready for your next adventure.

2. Spacious Storage Compartment with Removable Sleeve for Wii, Xbox 360, PS3

Everki 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 360, or PS3 gaming console.  The sleeve fits neatly into its compartment with room left over for documents and a few accessories, and the bag features a clever buckle system that allows for partial or full 180 degree opening of the compartment for easy loading.  Additional interior pockets facilitate tidy organization of items like cables, tools, camera, and mouse, and all of the Beacon’s compartments are lined in a warm orange that contrasts stylishly against its black exterior.

3. 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 gear and more easily maneuver it for packing and unpacking.  These grips blend in seamlessly with the Beacon’s sleek design and are each solidly constructed using sturdy materials to ensure that this bag remains a loyal traveling companion trip after trip, journey after journey.

4. 5-Point Balance Strap System

Today’s tech-savvy traveler needs a bag that can carry a lot of weight without adding to it.  Everki’s 5-Point Balance Strap System distributes weight load evenly across the torso to reduce muscle strain and keep you feeling light on your feet with every step you take while wearing the Beacon.  Like most bags, the Beacon has two adjustable straps at the bottom.  Everki adds to these two adjustable straps at the shoulders and one across the chest that give you more control over weight distribution and, ultimately, greater comfort. 

5. Ergonomic Back Panel and Shoulder Straps

Carrying a laptop, gaming console, and accessories can wear a traveler out quickly.  Luckily for the weary traveler, the Beacon is designed with pillow-soft shoulder straps and padded back panel that pitch in to help you shoulder the load when you have to carry your gear for long periods of time.  Mesh padding and deep airflow channels also allow for maximum air circulation to keep you dry, cool, and comfortable, even while you are in constant motion.  Everki presents the Beacon’s padding and mesh in the same warm, orange tone that lines its interior.   

6. Quick-Access Hip Pockets

The Beacon includes discrete hip pockets on each side that provide quick access to items like keys, flash drives, water bottle, mobile phone, and portable media player.  Left side pocket features a convenient cable outlet that offers tangle-free management of headphone cables and both pockets are easily accessible without having to remove the bag from your back.  Their placement conforms to the flow of the design and they come equipped with high-quality zippers with durable all-metal pulls.

 

Additional Features

Flight Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack
Lifetime Warranty Protection

You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that with any product in the Everki family, you never have to worry about discovering a flaw or defect after the end of the warranty period.  Everki’s Limited Lifetime Warranty protects your purchase against manufacturing defects over the entire life of the product.

Flight Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack

Optional Hidden Stash Compartment

The Beacon’s weather cover compartment doubles as an extra pocket when the weather cover is removed.  Its discrete location makes it unnoticeable and thus ideal for stashing money and/or other important documents while traveling.

Flight Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack

Integrated Shoulder Strap and Headphone Cable Management System

Convenient mini straps on the front of the Beacon’s shoulder straps provide a means to temporarily place items like sunglasses and headphones, and they work in harmony with the side pocket’s cable outlet to route cables and prevent breakage due to tangling and other hazards of travel.

Flight Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack
Dedicated Laptop Compartment

Your laptop is one of your most prized possessions, so it deserves its own compartment.  This compartment fits up to 18” laptops and comes equipped with a soft, felt lining to protect your computer from scratches and other hazards of transport. 

Flight Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack
Additional Front Pockets

The Beacon’s two additional outer pockets maximize space. One vertically zippered and one open pocket provide additional storage for items like portable electronics, keys, change, and writing utensils, and are well-positioned to provide easy access without interrupting the bag’s visual appeal.   

Flight Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack

Ruggedized, Water-Resistant Bottom

The Beacon’s underside is composed of a rugged, water-resistant material that is customized to resist weather and wear.  It also provides an extra layer of padding to further guard against bumps and other potential dangers that compromise the safety of your valuables.

I own an extremely big laptop (ASUS G73JH-X1). I could never find a bag that looked good and functioned properly. Lugging around a 12 lbs laptop with a messenger bag isn't smart.
This bag has plenty of room for my laptop and the pocket is lined with what can only be described as dead Muppet fur, which is as luxurious as it sounds. There are plenty individual pockets and all with what reminds me of a massacre on Sesame Street. As graphic as it sounds, my iphone, mouse, power supply, cooling stand, etc. are exquisitely caressed by what appears to be the flesh of Ernie.
There is even a rain cover to keep it from the elements! An amazing backpack. I don't know a lot about Everki, but I'm now a life long customer and will recommend this backpack to my friends and family.
The biggest con is the price, but the simple fact is you pay for expert craftsmanship and, come on, Muppet fur. I think it comes out to about 10% of the price of my laptop so it's worth it to keep it safe and sound. Looks cool and comfortable to wear. I love this bag.

After weeks at Staples, MicroCenter, BestBuy and OfficeMax I finally decided to bite the bullet and spend the money for this bag. It fits my M17x like a glove, and carries tons of other stuff to boot (a netbook, a couple notebooks, a cordless mouse, and there's still room left over. My one complaint is that the shoulder straps are at a slightly wider width than most backpacks (Northface et certa); this was something I got used to in a week or so. Other than that it's got a stuff picket on the bottom with a waterproof jacket for the outside, I also stuffed a raincoat in there. The laptop compartment is very well padded and has a lining that I am confident would never scratch my machine. If you've got a massive laptop it's definitely the way to go, if I had known how great this backpack was I would have skipped the shopping process and just bought it from day 1.

I have an ASUS G73JW, a DSLR, Logitech G53 headset, couple of earphones, a Kindle, Sansa, and a bunch of clothes that I carry around with me. After looking around (because I had enough of lugging a duffel bag), I decided to throw in twice the amount of the Targus XL and bought the Everki Beacon.

I was expecting a huge backpack to arrive but not exactly. It's actually a pretty decent average size with generous pocket space for all my electronics.

First thing that strikes you would be, holy crap this thing is really well-made. All my previous laptop backpacks feel flimsy compared to this ruggedness. Definitely well worth the $100 and extra express shipping fees to get it.

If you're still pivoting between to buy or not to buy, just buy it. Well worth every penny.

This bag was purchased because of the wonderful reviews it received; it is in fact a fantastic bag. It is well made with sturdy material, has a lot of space and pockets, a secure space for a LARGE computer (ASUS G53S), and it is a decent price. However, the reason it is only getting three stars, is because this bag was not made with women in mind. The cross chest support strap is in a very awkward spot and there is no real way to get it fit comfortably. A few inches up would make a huge difference. My husband tried the bag on with no concern, and probably most of their customers won't have issues. But if a woman will be using this bag, be sure to keep this in mind.

Okay over the past 72 hours I have found that I am NOT alone in trying to find a back pack that will allow me to travel with the ASUS G74. On this bag (Everki Beacon) there are conflicting reviews and I am here to put them to REST! I HAVE PHYSICALLY placed my ASUS G74SX - BBK11 into this bag's lap top sleeve and zipped it completely closed!
YES the Fan side of the PC must be faced toward the longer / lower zipped side of the bag.
YES it is a VERY SNUG fit and does intrude on the main compartment of the bag.
YES you have to wiggle the lap top a bit to get the zipper closed.
IT CAN BE DONE AND WILL TRAVEL FINE!

SO DID I buy the Everki Beacon bag? NO. I bought the Everki TITAN. WHY?
#1 EVEN MORE SNUG fit for the Asus G74SX than the Beacon, BUT way easier to zip up (still room at top of bag for my next laptop as long as it is not any deeper than 13.2 inches, could be 18.4 inches wide)AND I do NOT have to take the G74 out of the sleeve to go thru security with the Titan.
#2 My Samsung GS3 phone does NOT fit in the cell phone pocket as shown on the mfg video for the Beacon. It does fit in the cell pockets in the Titan.
#3 The Not enough compartmentalization for me, a lot of open storage space for Clothes or for your Xbox but I travel with 2 toddlers and an infant. I need spots for all my Laptop,PC stuff AND snacks/spare baby clothes/formula/Nuks/baby bottle/field first aid kit/meds ,etc. I do not want all of this in a pile in the bottom of my bag.

I hope this helps! I was looking for a Laptop back pack for 11 months. I will travel with the Everki Titan in 3 weeks to BOS and then New York (expected train, plane, foot and Bus travel. I will update if I find and negative issues.

I did not buy this bag from Amazon, as a matter of fact, I logged in to find a replacement. I have had this backpack for 18 months and it shows hardcore wear for no good reason. I have an 18" Toshiba Qosmio and I use it everyday.

The compartment is well padded side to side (Top and bottom of computer)but there is little padding at the bottom and NONE at the corners. The supplied rain jacket is not waterproof, just resistant. Your backpack will be damp if caught outside as the rain works through the rain jacket. After several uses the inner lining of the rain jacket began to deteriorate leaving a white residue. One of side pockets at the bottom has uncloseable slit (For an Mp3 player I guess) that can spit out a thumbdrive. The gaming console sleeve is pretty useless and flimsy, but I wanted a laptop bag. If you have a big laptop, it will intrude into the storage area and create a lip at the bottom that you will have to feel under for objects as it will be out of your sight line. A rip has appeared at left front zipper seam holding the main compartment which goes all the through to the inside exposing the inside.

The case carries: An 18" Toshiba Qosmio computer, a wireless mouse, large OEM power supply, three thumbdrives and three (Tiny 2.5") Seagate GoFlex external drives.

This items do not even fill the bag to half capacity. The total weight is about 18 pounds. I do not toss, throw or abuse this bag, I just use it normally everyday with an office job. Nothing else rides in the bag. If your are using this bag only occasionally, then it might be worthy -- But for a $100+? (FYI, I wanted to love this bag.
