Beacon Laptop Backpack w/Gaming Console Sleeve, Fits up to 18"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Top Customer Reviews
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.
-Well crafted ( Mine normally around 30lbs when packed, more if i'm on a overnight trip or something and even with the strap fraying its held up for 2 years)
-Tons of pockets and space. ( I have no internet at home so am out at coffee shops or friends houses 3+ days a week. I like
to take a lot of stuff with me and I have yet to fill up the bag entirely)
-Great protection for electronics. (I am not a gentle person and the bag shows that. But my laptop, tablet mice and everything else don't have a mark on them)
- Very comfortable (I wear this bag for roughly 3+hours a week and on vacation trips more like 10+ hours)
- Able to fit the largest of laptops.
(I have fit my Republic of gamers laptop (Dimensions: 16.3" (W) x 12.6" (D) x 1.8" (H)), along with my wifes mac pro, both our tables, chargers, mice, batteries, books and
change of cloths)
-Excellent customer support
-Really nothing I can think of, they cost more then a lot of other brands but they are totally worth it.
Story time (About the experience with customer support)
I bought this bag roughly 2 years ago on newegg but thought I would put them a review here as well because this bag is simply amazing.
I had purchased a swissgear backpack before this, however one of the straps had started fraying and coming lose. When contacting customer support I was told unless I had a receipt/roof of Purchase that they would do nothing about it. I was sad to see a company not standing by their equipment so I looked around and found Everki. I bought the EKP117NBKCT specifically as its one of the few bags larger enough to told my laptop. About a month in the right strap started to fray.Read more ›
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.
I wanted something I could put my laptop in and know comfortably it was protected. Not stressing the seems as it merely adds a layer of backpack material between the back of the screen and the world.
Secondly, I ordered this because it would arrive before I had to leave again and thought since it was in the questions stating it would fit my exact laptop. But it doesn't. Now I have to find a different way to transport my laptop where I'm going.
The bag seems nice. But honestly I can't give it any other review since it explicitly does not do what I was told it would do. It doesn't protect.
