We recently purchased and tested out the Pacsafe Vibe 20L Anti-Theft 13.3″ Laptop/Tablet Backpack. The reason is that the usual cheap $35 notebook bags that hang from one shoulder can be very damaging to the spine and hips.
Unfortunately, one of our reviewers found out the hard way, from years of carrying his 3kg Sony Notebook, and now his Dell on the left shoulder, bulging disc and hip pain are common daily events. So ordering a proper backpack allows for the weight to be shifted to the back and evenly.
The Pacsafe Vibe does come in a 10 Litre Sash, 20 Litre, 25 Litre and 30 Litre backpack sizes. We chose the 20 Litre to limit the amount of weight that can be carried in the bag at anyone time.
The Pacsafe Vibe series features eXomesh® slashguards, Carrysafe® slashguard straps, and a new PopNLock security clip that allows you to attach your bag to a fixture. Interlocking zip pullers and the Roobar™ V, can lock multiple compartments together with a single padlock to deter sneaky fingers from pinching your belongings.
