The KIKEN P-TAC MATRIX DJ / Travel laptop bags are highly protective, richly styled and provide lots of flexible storage space. Designed with today's DJ in mind, KIKEN bags provide flexibility and quality that meets the demands of the gigging DJ.
The KIKEN P-TAC MATRIX comes in 2 sizes, 15.4" (which fits all 15.4" laptops and most all 16" laptops) and the 18" (which fits all 17" laptops and most 18" laptops). KIKEN also features our patent pending M.A.S.K. technology, which enables the flap to be removed and interchanged whenever you want to change the look or functionality of the bag.
When it comes to flexible storage space, you will be hard pressed to find another bag that can fit more. The 15.4" sized bag features a super-cush padded laptop section with "IN-BAG SCANNING" (meaning you can keep your laptop in the bag when going through airport x-ray machines). Then there is a middle section of the bag that gives you an additional 2 gallons of storage in the large center section (perfect for other large electronics, clothes or documents) and under the flap are 3 large pockets for accessories, power bricks and all the miscellaneous stuff you carry to/from a gig. The 18" version features all these pockets, and the large center area is 2.5 gallons.
All KIKEN laptop shoulder bags are made from 1680D Ballistix Nylon which is puncture proof and water resistant. (It's the same material formerly used by the military to make flack-jackets) Every zipper puller, clasp and "D" ring is molded alloy.Our industrial strength shoulder strap with molded alloy clasps is included and stress tested to 80 lbs. of pressure. This bag is built to fit large laptops and Serato rigs..
SLAPPA custom build laptop backpacks, laptop bags and laptop duffels are a comfortable and affordable way to carry and protect your laptop computer. Considering that you are likely carrying more than $2000 worth of DJ gear to a gig, you need quality and protection you can rely on.

Best Bag Ever
Purchased this bag over a month ago through my company and use it to carry a ASUS ROG752 17". couldnt find any others big enough to carry that big laptop, not your normal laptop. the bag itself is very heavy duty construction and i carry about 30 pounds in it all the time, i have no doubt this bag will last longer than the laptop. Thanks SLAPPA
Super Bag !!!!
Recent purchase of ASUS G750 and subsequent search for a suitable bag, finally led me to Slappa. Nothing else in my price range would fit the large laptop and protect it as well. The Kiken bag has surpassed all expectations. Amazing bag at such a low price. Better quality than I've seen at twice the price !!!!
Nice while it lasted
Loved it until the handle broke after about 2.5 years. Very disappointing.
A best of a bag
This bag is big - I'm 6'2 so it works perfectly for me and all that I carry. Very well padded, plenty of open spaces, big pockets and padded laptop area. It's a little on the heavy side - I'm guessing 4-5 lbs - but it is a very well made bag. Only suggestion is to add one of those rear vents to slide onto wheeled luggage.
Great for Asus G73
I bought you Mindblast bag for my boyfriend for christmas, he has a 17.3" Asus gaming Laptop (very big) and it didn't fit in any bags at the store. When I came across your website and read the customer reviews about the bag I went ahead and bought on, needless to say he was thrilled and the bag holds everything he carries and more, he is very satisfied with the bag and now I know where to go if anything should happen to this one. Thank you!
Fits both G74 AND G72 at the same time!
Just used our new Kiken bag for a trip to visit friends out of state, and wanted to say how incredibly happy we are with it. The Kiken bag held our G74 AND our G72, all power cords, both mice and my full-sized headset with ease! We got thru the first TSA checkpoint very quickly and with minimal problems at the second one on the return trip. We got compliments from several airport staff on the size of the bag and the beauty of it. The bag was very heavy with that much in it, but I wasn't at all worried that it was being stressed out. The bag even fit under the seat in front of us when we were on the side of the plane with 3 seats. Thank you so much for making such a wonderful product for us gamers!
fits my 18.3" Asus
I had just purchased the new ASUS G75VW from Best Buy and this thing is a beast, not only in its operating system but its size. So with that said I had to find a bag that would not only fit this 18.3in laptop but something that would feel comfortable, look good and would be easy to carry around due to the extensive traveling I due for business. There were a few options but none of them compared to the style that SLAPPA was offering. Once I perused the website I was hooked, I started to read the reviews for the Ballistix Shoulder Bag which helped out on making my decision. Although the review I read was over the ASUS G73 which is a bit bulkier than the G75 the review said it fit perfectly and that the 18in PTAC Matrix Sleeve would also be a great buy because it was also a perfect fit. Once I received the package which took exactly 3 days from the time of purchase I was more than happy with the product. I quickly ripped open the package and tested out my laptop, what I didn’t realize is that when you open the flap there are two slots. One is a laptop sleeve built into the bag with a handy fold over Velcro flap for extra security and the other is a pretty big space for whatever else you want to put in. The PTAC Matrix Sleeve has two built in D-rings so if you didn’t want to carry around the big bag you can attach the shoulder strap to the D-rings and carry just the sleeve. Overall look, design, and customer service are top notch, I am definitely going to spread the word and I will also be a returning customer.

exceptional quality and design
I've been looking for a stylish, functional and big enough laptop bag for my 17" laptop. I searched forever and finally came across Slappa's line of products. Not only did their products looks cool, but they were also well designed using sturdy materials. You can see right out if the box that their products are going to withstand the abuse of daily use carry all your stuff. I couldn't be happier! Thanks Slappa!

great for Alienware M17x R3
I purchased the Kiken Shoulder bag to hold my Alienware M17x R3. There are not a lot of bags out there that it will fit in, but since this one was designed for it, I thought it might be a good choice. After doing tons of research, I had heard that the Slappa bags could be lacking in padding. However that's not true at all. There's adequate padding and in does cover every side of the laptop including the bottom. The sleeve also keeps the laptop from actually sitting on the bottom, which is also a big plus. Unfortunately, just adequate wasn't going to be enough for me. I travel to oil platforms and the people that handle our bags are not always gentle. They are paid to handle tools and pipe, not luggage. So, I purchased the PTAC Matrix 18" Sleeve to fit into the Kiken. I was originally informed by Slappa's truly amazing customer support that the PTAC would be a tight fit in the dedicated laptop sleeve of the Kiken, but I tried it anyway and it fit perfectly. I put the empty PTAC sleeve into the Kiken sleeve first, then slid the laptop into the PTAC. All and all, this provided me with unparalleled protection, in a functional, stylish bag. I was still able to fold over the top flap and zip up the bag without any resistance. Besides, the great protection the combination offers, the Kiken bag itself has a a good few pockets and a lot of additional space to store all of your gaming or business accessories. The hardware is all tough metal, and the stitching is excellent. I'm completely content with my purchase, and I think this is one of the best options out there for carrying around your top dollar laptops.
This was a gift for my husband, Bill - he's got to carry around his huge developer laptop plus his own laptop and embedded test equipment. He needed a large bag that would travel easily with him. It's not only perfect with all the pockets, but it's as he put it, "badasss"
great for Alienware m18x
I buy a lot of products online, but do stick with brands I trust. Reviews to me are important so hopefully this helps others. I bought this bag for my Alienware m18x a month ago. I've used it on 2 trips, and have had so much in this bag, it's really too much to list. The construction is solid, materials very solid and the protection I would rate a solid A.
there are 1-2 tweaks I'd like to see made (like more flap options and different inner lining choices) but other than that, I have not seen a better quality shoulder bag anywhere near this price.
Slappa is now a brand I trust. I will buy more from them and would recommend this to friends and family.
great for alienware m17x and cooling fan ++
I recevied my Kiken bag and Matrix sleeve and had some time to use it. The first thing I noticed is that it has an insane amount of storage which is awesome, I can't believe that my alienware m17x and my cooling fan both fit into the rear storage compartment! Which leaves the giant main front storage compartment open for all my other supplies and still have the front and size smaller pockets for things like my power cords, mouse, headphones and many other things. The bage also seems very well made, so all in all I really think this is an amazing bag in both looks and functinallity. Thank you so much for your help in the ordering process and I hope u have a great holiday!
plenty of storage and protection
I chose this product for its size as I have a over sized laptop, this product is perfect for my needs with plenty of storage and protection for my extra goodies.
Just the Right Size
I was worried that the shoulder bag would be too big but it is just the right size. Kazaa!!!!!
an excellent bag
hey I wanted to write you to let you know this kiken ptac bag is a very excellent-top of the line-primo bag! everything about it says it should cost $300. kudos! very happy to tell others about you guys.

super quality laptop bag
I have been looking for a quality 18" laptop bag for months. I almost spent $400 on a Tumi ut just couldn't bring myself to do it. I learned of Slappa on notebookreview.com and after reading the review of the Kiken bag there, was on the fence. I then posted questions asking for references and 2 people came back and strongly recommended Slappa. I then sent a PM and immediately got a response from Dom so I figured it was worth taking a shot. All I can say is THANK YOU!! This bag really seems to be just as high quality as the Tumi I was looking at and worth every penny of the $120 price. I'm so happy about this bag I've actually been happily telling people about both the bag and the company.
