  • Good and bad

    I like this bag but don't love it. The good, it's quality and lots of space and it fits my large Sager laptop. The bad, needs to have the ability to slide over a trolley handle and needs a pocket for documents - I hate leaving my documents on the open section but forced to because of the lack of a document pocket. Also, I think you could lose the belly strap - seems like overkill. I can't say don't buy it because it's a really nice backpack but just know if you need these other features before you buy it

    Mask Transit

    Several buddies of mine at work got these bags. They are awesome. I wasn't sure about the styling, I'm not so bold. I got the Transit mask because it was a little more subdued. At first I was disappointed because it didn't have as much space as my Swiss-gear Patriot roller bag. My biggest peeve is that it doesn't have as many small pockets as the patriot. I end up putting a lot of stuff in the pocket on top of the transit mask. More than I would prefer. My second peeve is that there isn't a great place to put documents. I'm using the pocket at the bottom of the Mask to store those types of things now. It isn't quite large enough for an 8.5x11" sheet. With all that said the following is a list of stuff I don have in the bag for my flight this afternoon. M17xR3 alienware laptop Dell 15" work laptop Point and shoot camera gorilla pod (camera tripod) logitech G9 wired mouse logitech wireless mouse Passport Travellers insurance documents pocket kleenex 3.5mm audio cable Samsung galaxy tab 10.1" cell phone charger tablet charger Alienware power brick Dell power brick portable external HDD extra cell battery chapstick advil airborne hotel bottle of hand lotion 3 pens 2 sharpies 1 highlighter house keys One last thing. It'd be nice to have a strap to secure it to my luggage. So if I wanted to carry it on top of my luggage I could.

    Great bag for my G74 and all my stuff!

    The backpack I purchased from SLAPPA was for my 17in ASUS G74 laptop. The laptop [read: desktop replacement] is a bit of a beast, but it fits perfectly in the padded laptop compartment! I can also fit my Xoom in the pocket next to it, as well as all my power adapters and an Xbox360 comfortably. The backpack opens like a transformer, making it really easy to get to all my stuff with a minimum of fuss, and has tons of other smaller pockets for all my other gadgets. The backpack is padded really well, very solidly constructed, and is even comfortable to wear when fully loaded with all my stuff. I couldn't be happier. It's easily twice as good as the ASUS bags are, and it looks much cooler. It's also a breeze to take through airport security thanks to how it opens. 11 out of 10. PS: Barbara was really nice when I ordered on the phone and got my order taken care of really quickly. Thank you!




    great backpack for my 17.3" laptop

    I needed a backpack that could fit my laptop. I have a 17.3 inch monitor and it wouldn't fit in my current backpack so I went searching. I wanted it for school, not necessarily gaming, but I'm so glad I got this one! There's tons of room for everything I need for school and it's VERY comfortable to carry around. I wasn't expecting as much room as I got and I love it!

    Using this backpack for my Sager NP7182

    I've been looking for a bag that could fit my behemoth laptop and when I saw my friends Mask backpack I immediately came to the site to get one. If you have a large laptop that you want to carry around (and more importantly protect) than this is certainly your bag. Actually, when I came to the site I had a tough time deciding because you guys have so many nice bags for large laptops. I decided on the Mask because of the ability to change the faces. I just ordered a Koop face to change things up every once in a while

    Really awesome for Asus G73

    This is the third bag I have purchased looking for a good solution for my Asus G73. The rest got returned. I just got my MASK Transit bag and I am impressed. My monster Asus slipped right in. This bag has that SOLID feel of a well constructed item. The material feels sturdy and all the zippers and tabs are well engineered. I have more pockets than I know what to do with...yet. Really impresive. Kudos!

    Great for my 15" laptop

    Loving my M.A.S.K. Transit! I use it to take a 15" MacBook Pro to work every day. I know the backpack is designed for a 17" laptop, so mine practically disappears into it. The only improvement I might suggest is that the pen-and-pencil pocket on the right side be replaced with either another water bottle holder, or somehow add an umbrella holder to the pack. That would make it just about perfect!

    great backpack

    The M.A.S.K. backpack has room for almost everything I can stuff inside it. My huge Asus G73 laptop fits nicely at the same time with my PlayStation 3, controller, big headphones, and all associated power bricks, cables, and accessories. And it breezes through airport security! Great product.

    excellent construction

    Chose the M.A.S.K backpack to accomdate my m17x Alienware laptop. Other backpacks are too small. I previously owned SLAPPA CD cases and I was familiar with the quality construction of the product. The MASK bag looks and feels very nice, excellent construction, tons of pockets. Only complaint is that it would be nice if the backpack had chest and/or waist straps.

    I love the bag but a little disappointed

    I ordered a M.A.S.K. Transit backpack cause i needed a bag to hold my Asus G-73 (Its a monster sized laptop) for an upcoming vacation trip and after seaching many different forums, came to the conclusion that lots of people were getting Slappa bags for theirs. So after a quick veiw of Slappas example videos I was sold on the idea that this was going to be a great bag. I quickly ordered mine and it was shipped promptly and arrived 3 days later. The backpack is excellent. There is plenty of room for anything you want to put in it. Then I started to examine all the seams and was dissapointed to find a long tear on one of the inside seams. It wasnt structurally important to the strength of the bag, but im pretty disapointed that my 150 dollar bag wasnt inspected a little closer before they sent it. I was going to send it back for a new one (they said over the phone they would be happy to switch it out for me) but i decided instead to just glue it with some e-6000 and that fixed it. Over all, I love the bag, and I"d recomend it to anyone with large 17'' laptops who want some real space.

    This backpack is a awesome!!!

    Holy cow this thing has sooooo much space. I wasn't expecting it to be able to hold all my gear and still have plenty of room. My last backpack was stuffed when I put all my gear in it. Fully loaded with everything I carry on a daily basis, this thing still has tons of room left. I am a contract computer consultant and I carry a lot of stuff with me everyday and this monster packs it all with room for plenty more. This is the best backpack I have ever owned, without a doubt. The materials are of surprisingly high quality and its really well thought out in its design and function. Looks great and packs everything. I am completely satisfied. I highly recommend this backpack to anyone who travels with digital gear. You will love it! I know I do.




    Sick Backpack!!

    This backpack is one seriously badass product. I've had it for 3 weeks now, using it every day on campus and it easily accomodates my macbook, text books and my running shoes. I called my order in and Barbara was so nice and helpful. I'm a new Slappa fan and can highly recommend the backpack and based on my experience, think their service is excellent.

    Great product

    This is a great product, especially for Alienware owners, which I think you should capitalize on. There aren't too many laptop backpacks that can carry the m17x, and owners don't like buying the official Alienware backpack because it screams "I have a $3000+ laptop in this backpack". Either partner up with Alienware to get the word out or offer a discount for Alienware m17x owners. I've already mentioned this backpack on laptop forum websites and tons of guys are asking about it now. Couple things though that would make the pack more perfect. Find a way to secure the handle at the top of the backpack, like velcro or make the handle retractable; the handle is HARD, which is fine and durable, though when I bend over or turn fast, the handle hits the back of my head...and it hurts. Also add in chest-straps or make it an additional accessory that people can add to the shoulder straps. On that note, I noticed there are small straps on the shoulder straps; I think there should be more products offered that can make the backpack more customizable, like attachable cell-phone holder or even the chest-strap like I mentioned. Other than that, thanks for designing a great product.

    Best out there.

    I've fought with multiple "high end" brands of backpacks looking for the right fit for my needs, and this is the first one that met them all. It's comfortable without being heavy regardless of the load I'm carrying, and the lumbar support provided from the pad in the back is superb. I had issues finding a backpack that would fit all of my University books and my 17inch widescreen gaming laptop, and this one fit like a glove. There's so much room in it, tons of pockets, and the padding is unmatched. As long as this company continues to produce these, I will *never* own a backpack from another brand - ever.

  • The M.A.S.K. Transit Checkpoint Friendly 17 inch laptop backpack offers quality and features you will not find in any other backpack on the market. Starting with our patented M.A.S.K. technology, you can customize this backpack at the time of purchase and anytime down the road, with your choice from an array of outer faces and internal artwork linings. The M.A.S.K. Transit Backpack uses 1680D Ballistix nylon (puncture proof and water resistant) to ensure your gear is protected against the elements. The dedicated laptop pocket is sized to fit most all 17 inch laptops, is checkpoint friendly (meaning you can leave your laptop in the bag when you go through airport scanners) and has .25" of padding in every wall of the compartment (ultimate protection). And if that wasn't enough, we added 2 molded outer underbelly runners to provide even more protection if you should happen to drop the backpack. This Transit M.A.S.K. backpacks offer a lot of storage space and pockets - giving you the ability to easily store your laptop, a tablet, books, headphones a gaming console, and lots of small peripherals (phone, wallet, keys, passport, portable charger, etc).

    The Transit M.A.S.K. is tested to fit the ASUS G74, Alienware M17x and M18xm Macbook Pro and the MSI GT683 (just to name a few).

    The most unique features of this backpack is that you can change the outer face anytime (change the look and functionality) or change the internal artwork lining. M.A.S.K. outer faces and internal artwork linings are available to be purchased separately.

    It's easy to build your M.A.S.K. backpack to suite your needs:

    1) Choose your lining- either Red, Blue and Black. All of which are rip-stop nylon

    2) Choose one of the custom inserts.

    3) Choose a face for your backpack. You can choose between a number of faces that best fit your style and functional needs. Again, with our M.A.S.K. technology, you can choose to have more then one face for your bag, and change the face to change your moods/needs.
