I originally enquired about the MASK, but was informed that the Alienware 17 wouldn't fit, so was recommended the Pivot. Thanks to Steve @ Slappa for persevering with my questions, and for sorting out the shipping to the UK. It came in under the VAT threshold, so just had to pay around £22 for handling/fees. Still a very good price. And the bag is fantastic. I tried it for 2 nights working away from home and could fit everything I needed comfortably. The shoulder straps are very comfortable. Slappa will definitely be my first choice in the future.
Excellent travel bag
I don't know that you are marketing this bag correctly. Yes it holds my laptop, but I just used this for 2 consecutive business trips and it served as the best carry-on bag I've ever used (and I've been travelling on sales trips for 20+ years). Has lots of room and easily fits in the overhead compartment. I also like that you are using top grade materials and YKK zippers. Keep up the good work (and maybe change the way you market this bag).
This bag is a beast! I just used it for a 5 day business trip across 3 states. I am able to dress business casual, so if you have to wear suits this might not be as optimal as it was for me, but I got 3 pairs of pants, 4 dress shirts, 2 sweaters, a pair of shoes., my laptop and powerbrick and my shaving kit. Carry on for all 3 small planes I took. It was absolutely perfect. I'd give it 11 stars. This is far more than a backpack - I think you guys are doing yourselves a disservice - this is a great business travel bag
I got this for my Alienware 17. It fits perfect. The engineering that went into designing this backpack is top notch.Very happy with it!
Fits my huge laptop
Just got my Slappa bag and I LOVE IT! It's stylish for any gender, it fits my alienwear without advertising what's in the bag and it fits all my work things and some! The backpack style plus briefcase is so awesome and perfect for the industry I'm in! Quality bag, big zippers, I truly am so very happy! Thank you for making the rare bags to fit the huge laptops no one else will make a bag for!
Castle Rock, CO
I do cfo work and I have this Alienware 17r4 loaded with ram I use for financial analysis. Finding a bag to fit the machine was the first requirement. The aw 17r4 fits snug in the notebook pouch. Plenty of padding and pockets for the gear of power cords, network cable, mouse, etc. Second requirement was it would still look professional in the world of finance. This bag looks more than professional for the stodgy world of finance. Third requirement was how it could,be carried. Backpacks areally not accepted all of the time in the industry but this has the ability to not look like a backpack at all. In fact upon receiving the case I had to call to even find the hidden straps and strap d rings which are smartly designed and hidden well. This last point wasn't a requirement but this case is really a nice piece of luggage. It would be the perfect bag for a weekend trip that can be moved from shoulders to backpack or just carried.
Excellent bag for travel
Had this for about a month now and used it for 3 different trips - I've packed this bag to the gills and it handles whatever I throw at it. Especially like the oversized zippers on this bag.
Perfect for the working, professional student!
First off, Dom was excellent and fun to work with. I even called and asked him a truly silly question because I couldn't find the D-Rings for the backpack straps. (If I had bothered to read the product information, I would have answered that myself.) . Dom mentioned neither of these facts. He just calmly pointed out where they were. Even though I felt like an idiot, Dom wasn't the reason. He took my order, answered my initial questions before purchase, (even going so far as to check the dimensions on the laptop sleeve to make sure it would fit my new Alienware 2016 17R4). He explained the materials of the bag and where they came from. He explained the warranty in detail. He explained the shipping procedures. Before I even received this bag, I was a happy camper with SLAPPA. This bag as a distinctive professional look, and I'm particularly thrilled with that. I am a 46 year old student working for the VA. This bag says professional without alienating me from the younger students I actively engage with. In fact, both my co-workers and the students have all asked where they can get one. (I have SLAPPA's link saved on my phone for this very reason.) It doesn't weigh on you, even with a 10 pound monster laptop, student gear, and work gear. It isn't bulky or awkward. It's easy to roam the halls at work and school. The only thing this bag doesn't have is a water bottle holder, which is not a problem for me. Overall, I strenously endorse this product and suggest you all get one if this fits your needs.
Fits my Alienware MX17 R4
Good sized backpack for Alienware R4. The bag is a good weight and has excellent padding. Really like the blue color interior - makes it easy to see things in the bag.
Santa Monica, CA
WOW - great bag and service
I bought this bag when it was on pre-order and expected it would be delivered the beginning of January - then a week later it shows up and with a hand written note from the owner of the company. That was pretty impressive - then I used the bag for a weekend LAN event and all I can say is it the best backpack I've ever owned. There is so much space, loads of padding and it's super comfortable. I had at least 10 people at the LAN ask me about this bag. I love it. Perfectly fit my MSI titan.
