  • Unhappy

    Bought my velocity backpack little over year ago. Sent first one back after loosing couple of zipper pulls. Now with the latest almost all pulls have fallen off and are lost. Zipper quality is very poor. Rest of bag was wonderful wish they change the huge pulls that get snagged then separate from the zipper body.

    7 year old Velocity Backpack

    I bought an all-black Velocity back in 2006 and it's still going strong! One pull broke off, but I use the pack nearly daily and traveled extensively with it. The super cool outside padding design works really well and the multiple chambers padding keeps everything nice and secure. To sum it up: rugged and unusually cool looking. An excellent investment.

    extremely satisfied

    I've been looking for a decent backpack for college for a while but the cheap ones I bought were horrible and would fall apart very easily. I finally decided to spend the money of a good backpack and I was blown away. I had no idea the deal I would be getting would be so tremendous! The backpack not only looks incredible but fits everything I need! It's durable and I got several complements on it on the first day I used it. Its a very good backpack and I am extremely satisfied.

    Fits Asus G75VW laptop

    I recently purchased the Velocity Matrix Pro 17 backpack, and I simply love it. I purchased it because I have an Asus G75VW laptop, which has a 17.3" screen plus an extra inch or two in the back for powerful vents. No other backpack would hold the laptop so comfortably (tried two others and had to return them), and I have to admit I am astounded by the quality, I didn't expect the backpack to feel this perfect.

    Awesome Bag

    I've been abusing one of the 17" ones for a few years now. I'm pretty sure they used to make them out of the BuckBlast which is a totally awesome fabric. The laptop pocket has tons of padding and fit a 17" laptop with a crazy extended battery sticking out of the back no problem. My only complaint is that rubber on the outside as I've managed to scuff it up pretty bad. But since the laptop survived it all I can't complain too much!

    Fits (barely) my Alienware M17xR4

    It barely fits my Alienware M17x R4, but it is working great. So far, it has outlasted 2 of the backpacks that Dell sells, which is outstanding.

    Super awesome backback

    This bag has everything you could look for in a backpack. It's durable, comfortable, lightweight, fashionable, unique, yet proffesional. I've had mine for at least 3 years now and I've been pretty rough on it. The stitching is still holding strong, the color hasn't faded. My backpack essentially still looks exactly like when I got it. The padding is very thick and protective and surprisingly insulative too. It actually even keeps my lunch pretty cold throughout the day. My only recommendation, as I see on other reviews, is that it needs a few more pockets. But it's a small inconvenience and I would highly reccomend this backpack without hesitation. It's more than worth the money.

    ok, but.....

    It's a very good backpack but my only complaint is that it can hold the Asus G73 laptop for the 17" mode and while it does, it's not a perfect fit. The top flap of the laptop section can't stay closed because the velcro can't reach.

    Great laptop backpack

    The slappa bag is great for my laptop, feels like a solid and secure bag that has a lot of space, only negative point is the lack of space for a water bottle. But besides that great product!

    excellent backpack

    I'm an electical controls engineer. I use this backpack in place of the factory laptop bag. I chose it over other products because of the style and ratings it recieved from other customers. Keep up the good work. I'll be back again.

    Not worth it.

    The back pack seemed great at first until it started to fall apart. This thing is a ticking time bomb. In the first week, the decals fell off. Within a month, I began to see fraying of the outer fabrics. Just 2 days after my warrantee expired, both of the zippers on my 17 inch backpack broke off. I've had many other backpacks that have lasted much longer, and have lifetime warrantees. I'm never buying another slappa bag. Wait until you own yours for a year. See how it hold up. It doesn't last. I'm very dissatified in spending 100 bucks for something like this.

    My favorite and longest lasting backpack to date!

    I got my 17" Matrix when i started college and as a backpack to carry around my m17x Laptop. Its heavy as hell but the matrix as stood up to much abuse. Soft on the inside and tough on the outside. Great detail on this backpack. The only thing that ever bothered my about it was the lack of a water bottle compartment on the side. I knew this going into the purchase. However, my Nalgene Bottles are too large for most of those side compartments. My Nalgene bottles fit well inside the second largest compartment and never leak. Drink nets would make this backpack look less streamlined anyway =] Anyway, great backpack for a student. (books and electronic devices) a+

    Great backpack but wish the main section was larger

    This is a great backpack I am pleased with my purchase I use this bag for work to have everything I need with me at all times I am in the military and meet with people everyday at their place of business. The only thing I would improve and that I was a bit unhappy with was with the main compartment needs to be a little bit bigger I can only put one three ring binder in it also a simple cable bag would be a plus but the overall product is great I give it a 8 out of 10 thanks.

    Good Backpack

    It lasted me about 2 years of heavy travelling. I've maxxed this puppy out holding a 17" and a 15" lappy. Recently the Left hand Side lower sholder strap is fraying and about to rip off. Wish it was nearly indestructable, then I wouldn't have to buy it again.

    Great product and great service

    I love the Velocity Matrix backpack. It fits my Alienware m15x which most 15 inch backpacks don't fit. (I purchased the 17 inch version backpack) Its extremely durable, plenty of room for all my books for school, and it looks awesome while doing it. Thanks for the great product SLAPPA!

    The Matrix backpack I bought was excellent! Awesome appearance and superb quality, all for a good price. The 3-layer laptop protection is quite sturdy, and there's alot of room for other items. There was alot of thought put into this product and it shows. Excellent for college.

    highly recommended

    I am using a 17'' Slappa, and it fits my Asus G73JH perfectly. The bag is spacious, provides great support and protection for my laptop, and provides extra room so I can carry all of my other gear on the go. I would gladly buy another Slappa in the future and I would recommend them to all of my friends.

    great style, durable materials

    I am using the backpack I purchased to travel with a new Asus G73JH-A1 laptop. I had difficulty finding any laptop bag that fit this laptop, but the Slappa bag fit. Unfortuantely the laptop sleeve I purchased did not fit, partially my faul to for not accounting for the depth of my laptop, but the customer service was fantastic, my restocking fee was waved (I had asked about this prior to making the order) and my return has already been processed. I like the backpack because A: It fits my oddly sized laptop. B: It has style without being flashy. C: It is made of durable materials and should protect my laptop well.

    Don't Waste Your Time Looking For Another...

    especially if you have the new Asus G73JH as I do. This backpack fits it like a glove, the quality is world class and it's just the right size for whatever else you want to carry in it. Mine arrived today and I am extremely impressed with this product, its design and appearance. It's half as bulky as others I've looked at with twice the functionality.

    best backpack

    strong, stylish, and even during the rain protects any gear you carry. I chose your product b/c it looks smaller then what I am actually carrying and there are so many compartments no matter what you have to pack, you have a place to put it. *just a thought, but I have had Jansport so long that I miss the little strap at the bottom of the bag, would be nice it you had it on the matrix. But hey the bag is the best ''hot butter on breakfast toast!''

    certainly the best laptop bag I've ever seen

    I purchased the Velocity Matrix 17'' for my new Alienware M17x and I'm very happy with the overall product. Beyond the fact that it fits the huge laptop easily and safely, it has plenty of space for all of the typical peripherals you'd carry around with a laptop. The build quality is excellent, and you can tell a lot of thought went into the layout of the bag. The only small issue I have is that the bag is a bit ''floppy'' when you don't have anything in it, making it difficult to insert a very heavy 17'' laptop with one-hand, and trying to hold the sleeve portion of the bag open with the other - perhaps an internal rigid structure would help keep its shape when it's empty? Beyond that, a fantastic product, and certainly the best laptop bag I've ever seen.

    This thing is luxury! Softly lined all throughout the inside and fits my M17x. I would've liked some more organizer pockets in the second big space, but I'll manage. Great backpack!

    Well-Designed Backpack

    The Matrix looks distinctive and is designed well. The internal pockets are useful for all of the different kinds of equipment that I carry. For example, the plastic-lined pocket is a protected, secure place for travel documents like plane tickets and a passport.Sure, you can get a backpack for less money, but why settle for a boring backpack if you use it every day?

    Awesome

    I purchased the Slappa Matrix Velocity Pro backpack 17'' version. This backpack is awesome it looks better then every other laptop backpack I have seen while having plenty of storage. A big plus is the fact that every single pocket is lined with a very soft cloth, ensuring that nothing will be scratched. This was the first Slappa product I have bought but it will definantly not be my last.

    excellent backpack

    I've bought the Matrix Velocity Pro for my M17x. Fits it nice and snug with plenty of room for my power brick, mouse, and other accessories. The padding is excellent, makes my massive notebook feel very light. It was also one of the only bags that would fit it without looking hideous. The bag is not too bulky, and has a great feel to it. Would recommend to others.

    I like it but needs more pockets

    I like the product a lot, it looks great. As many people online stated I wish it had a few more compartments in the individual compartments. Also I carry a 32oz bottle of water with me everywhere and this doesnt really fit anywhere in the backpack so a compartment for that would be great. Besides that I love the product and would reccommend it.

    Excellent

    The backpack I purchased has been phenomenal. I've been looking for a bag that could accommodate all of my gear when I'm out and about: laptop (15'' MacBook Pro), digital camera, DV Camcorder, as well as all of the chords and cables that it takes to connect everything. I've been more than pleasantly surprised by all that I can fit inside of my SLAPPA pack. In addition to how great this backpack is, SLAPPA also sent me several free items - two carrying cases with carabiners, and an enormous cloth bag. I've already gotten several complements on this pack, and I'll be back to SLAPPA when I need a new one.

    amazing backpack

    Bought a MATRIX to transport my laptop. Its amazing; in this florida weather which is always unpredictable, its great to have a backpack that you know will withstand a sudden rainfall while you're walking outside. I chose this over other laptop backpacks because of its ability to hold so much, while keeping a slender, compact look. Absoluetly worth the 80 dollars!

    Excellent backpack

    I am writing concerning a recent purchase from Slappa.com, I ordered the Velocity Pro Matrix back Pack intended for 17 Inc notebooks. Before my order arrived I had a very positive experience with Dominick. I just sent a simple email notifying my name was spelled incorrect (my error) and I was having a little difficulty locating the package tracker on your site. Dominick was highly professional and polite, the level of costumer service that I was given made my feel highly valued, so much I am encouraged to buy from Slappa.com again. Offering a superior product at a reasonable price and excellent customer service Slappa is truly ahead of its competitors offering a rarity in retail in this day and age. I am a full time student who just can't afford to waste 100 dollars on a backpack so I invested 10's of hours in to researching the best back pack to protect my Dell M1730 again, I can't afford to damage my notebook as a newly wed, I could not afford to replace it.Now that I have the back pack I am high impressed with amount of space, and the fact that the back pack is water resistant, well padded, plenty of room for my school books and even a snack. If I only had one recommendation it would be drink nets on the side. Over all I would give this back pack a 9.8 out of 10. I am secure in the belief my system is safe in that bag. I am excited to get the money and order one for my wife. She is a digital artist who has a nice notebook and other art supplies she needs to lug around.

    Very nice looking backpack

    Very nice looking backpack... i had limited choices for my laptop since it is a 17 inch and most bags couldnt handle its size... had 3 i was considering but feel in love with the look of the slappa backpack.. Only complaint is that it could use a few more pockets and a drink sleeve/holder when traveling...

    This backpack rocks

    I love the messenger matrix bag so much! It rocks so hard! Along with the messenger I got the matrix sleeve, and no offense, but boo. Rocks hard for my wife's hp, but wont fit ''the beast'' my Toshiba Qosmio, oh well.

    Good bag

    Some features are nicer than on the website and others are as expected. Overall I am more pleased that I originally thought I would be. There are things that can be done to improve the backpacks such as more places external for things like water bottles, small gadgets, etc. Make it easier to attach thing to the backpack and the shoulder straps. Have some pockets made with ''netting'' to hold and store things. It is nice an roomy but just needs the ability to do better with ''putting and tucking'' things away...

  • As a close cousin to our SPYDER bags, you should expect the MATRIX also brings to the party, great looks and a bit of attitude….and it does in spades. The MATRIX has a little more flair then the SPYDER, with white accent stitching on the front of the bag, yet brings with it all the great features of the SPYDER.

    Here's some lab-speak for you. The MATRIX backpack features our patented CORE3 laptop protection, utilizing three layers to provide unparalleled security for your digital gear. The molded rubber EXO-skeleton on the front of the backpack not only gives the bag it's futuristic look, it also provides protection from bumps and enables the bag to keep its structural integrity. The bag itself, or middle layer, is made of water repellent BuckBlast z-suede. The inside features 3MM padding in every wall, and plush tricot lining that prevents your gear from being scratched. For most, that would be enough protection, but we then take it one step further by adding a dedicated padded laptop compartment that will comfortably protect your 17" laptop (YES it does fit the Asus G73, the Alienware m17x and the MacBook Pro 17"). Also featured are custom molded alloy zipper pullers with locking heads and 2 outer plastic runners along the bottom of the bag for additional protection. Whoa, we almost forgot to tell you about the rear outer 'stay-cool" pocket, a cooler lined pocket for drinks-and because of the outer super-cush SLAPPA back pad you will NOT fell the drinks when you have the backpack on. And just to make sure we covered every base, we include a removable gadget pouch that clips onto the shoulder straps. This backpack is not for the faint of heart and is recommended only for those who can handle looking better than everyone else in the room.

    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 a quality laptop can often cost up to $2,000, you'll find that a quality custom build SLAPPA laptop backpack is a great way to protect your investment and your data. SLAPPA laptop backpacks have padded compartments, along with organizer and accessory pockets to allow you to carry tons of additional gadgets and gear

    All of our products come with a 180-day warranty that provides the customer with repair or replacement of defective products.

    With high quality portable device protection like this, its easy to see why SLAPPA was voted the "Best Laptop Bag Brand" in the 2011 About.com Readers Choice Awards. We thank our many loyal customers for their support in making SLAPPA number one!
