Everki has expanded its line of laptop backpacks with the Excel, specifically designed for users of 17-inch laptops like the 17-inch MacBook Pro. It costs $59.99.
The Excel features a padded computer “nest” with document storage, a zippered central compartment and a mesh “stash slot” that’s easy to access.
Side-zippered pockets stow pens and keys, and caches also hold sunglasses and media players. A flexible belt over the shoulder strap holds down earbud wires, so you can keep your iPod in your backpack but still listen to it without getting tangled up.
The harness features snap buckles and padding to help redistribute your weight, and the whole kit is made of ballistic nylon.
