Rugged, Serious Gear
The Beacon is EVERKI’s rugged and spacious backpack for giant laptops. This sporty and super-comfortable backpack is perfect for carrying multiple devices, textbooks, and even the beefiest laptop in the ultra-soft, padded and felt-lined compartment. It also comes with a dedicated sleeve for your gaming console. And, the Beacon still has room in the main compartment for your cords, power bricks, external USB’s and books. Although the Beacon is roomy enough for an 18-inch laptop and all your peripherals, it maintains a slim shape with its slanted front profile. Ruggedly constructed to withstand the rigors of travel, commute or university, the Beacon will be your traveling companion for years to come.
Yes, the Beacon has lots of large compartments, but that’s not all that makes it so innovative. We’ve designed intuitive spaces for smart organization, buckles and straps positioned for on-the-fly adjustments, and additional front pockets for fingertip access. The dedicated laptop compartment is roomy enough for the most behemoth 18-inch laptop, and in the main storage area, you’ll find a large zippered pocket, dividers, and an assortment of multifunction accessory slots. A clever buckle system allows the main compartment to open halfway for quick access or a full 180 degrees for easy loading; and quick access hip pockets are easily accessible without having to remove the bag from your back. The Beacon – manage big loads with ease.

Gaming console protection
We 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, or PS series console. The sleeve fits neatly in the main compartment without affecting the ability to carry a laptop, and still leaves room for documents and a few accessories. Additional interior pockets let you keep control of items like cables, chargers, and mouse. Efficiently carry what you need for any gaming expedition.
We go 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 protects your equipment and documents against rain, snow, or dust. The covering easily detaches to allow for convenient cleaning and drying and can be quickly replaced when you’re ready for your next adventure.
When your backpack is fully loaded it can get heavy, so we engineered a 5-point balance strap system to ergonomically distribute the weight and reduce muscle strain. With straps that adjust at the shoulders, 2 quick-slide straps at the bottom and one across the chest, you have total control over weight distribution. This allows you balanced comfort, even when your backpack is full. The Beacon’s ergonomically designed carry system also boasts a padded back panel with mesh padding and airflow channels to provide maximum air circulation for breathability. The Beacon – cool comfort, total control.
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 bag and more easily maneuver it for packing and unpacking.
Cables tangled around your backpack straps? No more. The Beacon’s shoulder straps provide a means to temporarily hang sunglasses and headphones. They work with the side pocket’s cable outlet to route cables and prevent breakage due to tangling.
All EVERKI interiors are stylish, high-contrast orange because we know how frustrating it is to mistakenly leave a compartment unzipped, and how difficult it is to organize against a black background. Savvy and Stylish.
Durable zippers and metal pulls
Have you ever broken a zipper on your favorite bag? We have. That’s why we designed the Beacon using durable zippers and metal pulls. So your favorite bag can remain your favorite bag.

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 Beacon is backed by Everki's Limited Lifetime Warranty and world-class customer service.

Unfortunately, this backpack is not designed to work for people with breasts. The chest strap cannot be adjusted high enough to sit above them. Also, I don't know if it is just because I cannot put the 5-system to proper use, but the straps seem to be too narrowly placed on the connection behind my neck? They rub horribly. I don't remember having that issue with a backpack before.
Also, it would be really nice if there was an actual water bottle holder. The loop + zipper thing they have going on doesn't work at all.
Still very pleased after 3 months of international and domestic travel. No issues at all. I expect to get many years of service out of this very good backpack. Have been able to condense the contents of a laptop bag & medium backpack to this Everki model; which is huge for the business traveler.
Coming up on 1 year and still going strong. Used daily for work commute and on over 20 international / domestic business trips but still looks like new despite plenty of travel abuse. No problems with seams, zippers, straps.
This is a keeper! Highly recommend.
I have used this backpack for a couple of trips, and alsonuse it daily to bring my laptop to my job. Thtisnis what I carry all the time:
-ASUS ROG G751JY 17.3" laptop
-Xbox One controller
-Cables for my laptop, cellphone, Kindle, Switch, and Smartwatch
Sometimes I also carry my work PPE such as ear protection, working gloves, and such, or a travel pillow, headphones, and sometimes even more things.
It also comes with a sleeve to put a console such as PS4 or Xbox One in the backpack, but I haven't used it.
The backpack also came with a rain protector for whenever it rains hard. It can be confusing to put it, but it does the job really well.
For a $120 (the price at the time I bought it) it has been amazing and can't stop recommending it.
Pro's: It keeps your laptop very safe and snug, and protects it well from harm. use during light rain kept my laptop and the other contents of my bag safe and dry, and it was generally a roomy, sturdy bag. It also has a TON of storage room - my 17.3" laptop, wallet, two tcg albums and several decks all fit well into the bag.
Con's: The laptop showed a lot of use marks, and I discovered small rips in the side pockets which I cannot account for. The zipper also de-attached itself after around 3 years of use and wasn't fixable, however I tried, so the bag definitely could be built to last better. The inside pockets for small items are also not as useful or roomy as they might look. Lastly, my 17.3" laptop had a hard time fitting completely and closing the zipper, and I was missing even a centimeter or two to make it truely a perfect fit - keep that in mind if you laptop is bulky (I had an ASUS RoG machine, if that matters).
It's a very good bag, but make sure that it's worth your investment ath this price point.
Top reviews from other countries
I mainly use this bag for travelling if i need something bigger than a backpack and want to take my laptop, i don't really use the inner bag for any thing except storage of delicate items at home, normally it doesn't come with me. It fits my 17inch laptop fine and a load of uni books, has several compartments, ive even lost stuff in their before. The inside padding is meant for console and i reckon a PS4 and Xbox one will most likely fit comfortably.
Their are no cons for me, only pro's.
-Lifetime Warranty, people have said theirs has been replaced.
- Rainproof cover which hides away nicely and is easy to put on, been tested in several storms works fine.
- Loads of compartments and the main back space is excellent.
It's that spacious ive had laptop and charger pack in the back, wash kit, pair of shoes, several shirts and trousers in it and then space in the side to fit beats and extra's! does also have MP3 line but haven't used it as prefer that in my pocket.
As I walk to work this bag features a rain cover that is stored in a pocket at the bottom of the bag, the base is made of a more rigid material to give it a good base and the ability to fully open the main compartment is handy for finding cables and other gear.
The main compartment features a good selection of pockets to keep everything organised and I am able to carry far more and lay my hands on gear far quicker than my old bag.
The load balancing harness is easy to use and the chest strap is a lifesaver when you're carrying heavier loads. The top handle is reinforced and there's an additional handle to make loading the bag into a vehicle easier. I wouldn't advise using this bag to walk more than a couple of miles with a heavy load as it does not feature a waist strap to carry the load on your hips (but it's not designed as a hiking bag either!).
The laptop compartment has a soft microfibre lining and easily fits the XPS 17, you get the added bonus of the laptop being against your back allowing you to carry oddly shaped items without them being uncomfortable. I put the laptop in with the protruding battery facing away from me and it fits comfortably.
As part of a promotional video they show the bag being filled with a range of gear and I can confirm the bag holds a massive amount of equipment.
The game console case is a nice touch but I haven't got any use for it, it's made just as well as the main bag and doesn't feel like a "throwaway" item. The case has a good layer of foam to protect your console if you should need to carry one with you anywhere.
On a side note a typical work day will see me carrying: Dell XPS 17, 130W Adapter, Mobile adapter, various cables, Wacom Intuous Pro M, DSLR and 2 lenses, external hard drive, multi card reader, usb hub & adapter, 2 pencil cases, sketch pads and a folder with various other bits stashed in the other external compartments.
The materials are great and the bag looks awesome, the bright orange highlights might be a bit loud for some people but it matches my company colours so I love it!, there's a lot of additional detail that gives this bag character which as a designer is important for me.
I would recommend this bag to anyone looking for something that looks and performs great, the price is likely to put a lot of buyers off but if you're a professional or hardcore gamer with an expensive machine spending a little more to protect it is well worth the investment.
The laptop fit at the back where the straps are. The middle compartment is designed to hold consoles but if you removed the console bag it has loads of room for books, tablets and other various items. The front of the bag also holds small items. There are 2 side pockets and a front pocket without a zip.
When loaded with my items it is comfortable to on the back and also feels light considering the amount of items I have in it. Worth every penny.
Overall, you get what you pay for and this is a quality investment if you are planning on carrying around a potentially expensive bit of kit that you need to know will be safe and secure
After using it for several months now it is still as rugged as when I first purchased it, I highly recommend this bag to anyone who has a very large laptop.
