  • The Atlas is made with a nylon exterior - it is padded between compartments, and the compartments are lined with smooth nylon. The base of the bag is a heavy plastic
  • The carrying strap on top is a double grommet, plastic encased steel cable, with a free-floating soft plastic grip for your hand.
  • The zippers are all heavy duty, and the straps are shock-absorbing, reinforced, and attached to the back with an additional reinforcing layer of nylon over the doubly stitched attachment points. The photos of the straps and back are a bit further on, in the "comfort" section.
  • The Atlas has six exterior compartments - looking at the front view again, you can see the two easy-access zippered side pockets.

Product Description

The Level8 15" & 17" Atlas Backpack is a workhorse backpack that will haul your 15-17" laptop along with a small mountain of additional "stuff" with a bit of style, a ton of protection, and a lot of comfort. Thanks to it's adherence to TSA standards, your laptop can ride through the X-Ray screening station while remaining in the "checkpoint friendly" laptop section. There are four things that are critical for a travel/daily use laptop backpack - rugged construction, ample and organized storage, protection for the laptop, and comfort (when overloaded!) The Level8 Atlas is a winner on all of these.

The backpack is great, but this company is ripping you off. Level 8 sells this, as does the Apple Store, for $100.

I was surprised to see the low ratings, until I noticed the price. This is the best case I've purchased for traveling with a laptop (in my case, a 17" macbook pro). It offers lots of protection, lay-flat zipper for airport security, lots of extra pockets and storage space. Just don't pay more than the retail price of $100. The Apple Store or manufacturer are selling them for the correct price.

One of the better, more versatile backpacks for carrying your laptop or laptop and tablet.

As others have indicated, this backpack can be purchased from the Apple Store for $99.95 or through their own website for $99.99.

The backpack comprises two "main" zippered compartments; the back section zips completely open and you can lay it flat for security checkpoints. One side has a velcro latched and neoprene padded section for you to slip in your laptop, and the other side is a pocketed section for folders, a spiral bound notebook or magazines. I usually zip this section wide enough to unlatch the velcro, and pull out / drop in my laptop.

As mentioned, the back compartment folds flat for airport / security checkpoint. I didn't experience any issues with the velcro coming loose and my laptop slipping out when I went through check point security.

The second, or middle compartment will hold your chargers, cables, books, and includes a padded pocket section where I usually store my tablet. This padded pocket also has a velcro strap to securely hold in your tablet, preventing it from slipping out should you lay your backpack flat.

On top near the handles is a small zippered compartment that can accommodate items for quick access such as glasses, phones, phone chargers, a wallet, etc ...and keeping with their theme of velcro secured pockets, there's also a pocket for a cell / smart phone.

The front zipperd section is pretty typical, pen pockets, cell phone and USB pockets. There's also a zipped storage compartment about 8" wide and 4" deep to squirrel away stuff and a multi-layed pocket for smaller items such as a can of mints, USB stick, cell phone velcro and secured by velcro.

I bought this bag at the Apple Store about two years ago and have used it every day since. I carry a 15" MacBook Air and rarely an iPad 2 in it. I've been very pleased and never had any serious issues with it.

The bag still looks great! It has been through rain, snow, sleet, heat and even a motorcycle accident!

The layout of the bag is smart, with lots of useful compartments. It has a super sturdy handle and the adjustable straps are comfortable and easy to use.

The MacBook/laptop compartment is very well protected. When I went down on my bike, the backpack hit hard and was dragged across the pavement. there was very little damage to the bag (minor scuffs) and my MacBook was not damaged at all. I was so pleased.

This bag is not waterproof, but I've been caught in a few rainstorms and never had any problems. I would recommend a waterproof bag for motorcycling, but this bag does protect well. Just not for long durations in the rain.

If I had to recommend improvements, I would want a little more room. But honestly, the bag has plenty of room for most people and the sleek appearance is a welcome trade off for a little extra space. If space is a big issue for you, I would check out the bag first in person before buying it. Otherwise, I enthusiastically recommend this backpack!!

First — I bought this at an Apple Store for $100 and have used it pretty much daily for almost three years. I's pretty well-made, the laptop compartment is well protected, the straps are comfortable and easy to adjust, and it is spacious and has lots of compartments (I often carry laptop, iPad, camera, various accessories, charger, etc., and on short trips have used it as my only luggage).

Fatal flaw — when overloaded its zippers (even when fully closed) allow it to simply fall open and it cost me an iPad (as in flipped out and shattered). A small number of airport-friendly bags have snaps that can prevent this from happening — but they all seem to cost a lot more than $100. The bag was overloaded when this happens, but not that overloaded.

Note that the bag does have a velcro strap to prevent the laptop from falling out, but this is a weak alternative and in any event was no help for the iPad.

It's a testament to how good this bag is aside from this that I continue to use it.

Non-fatal flaw — the plastic handle (allowing it to be carried like an attache case) is made of a very hard material and is not terribly comfortable. Mine has broken and now presents some pretty sharp edges as well.

I was thrilled with the purchase ($99 on Apple accessories site) and used this everyday for 2.5 years. Well designed, comfortable. But through normal use, the zipper containing my 17" Macbook Pro has failed and is unusable and unfixable - thus rendering the entire pack useless. In fact, the zipper of the laptop compartment - the most important compartment - has the lowest quality by far, which is why it failed the durability test. Level8 has not responded - whatsoever - to any of my emails about this problem. They say their packs carry a 5-year warranty, but at this point that claim is only lip-service.
