Urban Photo Sling 250

Lugging cumbersome photo gear when you are out and about usually involves a conventional camera bag with carrying handles or a backpack. The former requires finding a clean surface to rest your bag while you access your gear, while the latter requires taking the backpack off every time you need even the smallest item.

The Beer Back Computer Pack for 15 and 17 Laptops
Review

On September 11, 2007, in Back Pack, Review, by John Nemerovski

“The Beer Back” Computer Pack for 15″ and 17″ Laptops
Company: Crumpler Bags

Price: $170.00 US
http://www.crumplerbags.com

Artie’s recent review of Crumpler’s smaller “The Salary Sacrifice” sibling to “The Beer Back” (abbreviated here as TBB) says it all, so please read his rave here — with action photos! — before you proceed.

You can buy and drink a lot of beer for $170 US, but it won’t last as long as this TBB case. You can fill Crumpler’s TBB with six bottles or cans of beer and have plenty of room remaining for your 15″ or 17″ MacBook Pro or PowerBook. You can pour some beer over this pack and your computer will laugh it off, being protected by multiple layers of impenetrable beerproof material from anything short of Hurricane Michelob.

The Beer Back can easily hold both a 15″ and a 17″ MacBook Pro, plus perhaps a couple of smaller MacBooks, with all their power cables, and a dozen or more iPods, if you’re careful. The pack will be heavy, but its padded shoulder straps can manage the weight, even if your geeky shoulders can’t.
