Hi All


I'm after a new backup for work. It needs to have a separate pocket at the back for my laptop (lenovo carbon). Pockets inside the main storage pocket for things like mouse dongles etc..


Happy to ship from the US/Amazon etc. 


Any ideas on suitable backups?






 backpack not backup!

Assuming that you mean backpack, I would suggest Tatonka.


They make a range of backpacks for this purpose.


The best place to find them is (You can click an option to get that site in English ) Perhaps also worth looking at


Why Tatonka?


Very tough and long-lasting. My Tatonka Zaphod has made it through 5.5 years of daily abuse.


Very practical. My Tatonka Zaphod even came with a padded laptop sleeve that just slid into the laptop pocket inside the rucksack.


Very comfortable. Padded straps and lots of adjustment. Also, the backs have a venting system to avoid pooled sweat on hot days.


Range of sizes depending on how much other stuff you want to carry.
