If nothing from the top-rated laptop bags of Spring 2015 are meeting your needs, pay attention to this new backpack. The Under-The-Jack Pack comes from Betabrand. After blowing away their “crowdfunding” think tank (currently 516% of the goal reached) where they test products as pre-orders to see if they garner enough interest, this ultra-slim laptop bag is being made and expected to ship in December.
The Under-The-Jack Pack is small and discreet enough to fit under a jacket or hoodie. It’s great for situations where a large bag or backpack isn’t necessary: happy hour in crowded bars, commuting on crowded trains, or biking to and from work — to name just a few.
This laptop bag is a slim profile at 1.5″ thick and available in two sizes for 13-inch and 15-inch laptop. It includes the main pouch for your laptop and a zippered side pouch for accessories. Besides the increased security keeping your laptop under your jacket can provide, its lack of bulk makes it easier to wear in crowds and more comfortable for being active (like running to class to make it on time).
The Under-The-Jack Pack is available for pre-order from Betabrand with a 10% discount making the current price $61.20.
