Booq’s Cobra squeeze ($195) is a new backpack with 13 separate compartments for your gear, including a MacBook up to the size of a 15” MacBook Pro. The bag’s gray exterior is made of Bionic Yarn, a fabric that combines recycled plastics with cotton — it gives the weatherproof Cobra squeeze a smooth texture that can stand up to the elements. Most pockets inside are lined with polyester, though an extra cushion is also provided to protect a MacBook.
Cobra squeeze packs a lot of storage into a relatively small area. At 16.9” x 11.8” x 3.9”, it’s far from the biggest backpack we’ve seen, but it uses the space well. Other than a MacBook, an iPad or two could also fit comfortably, and a front pocket on the top of the bag can handle an iPhone of any size. Two clever side pockets add to the available storage space. Open mesh cushioning on the back offers extra comfort while being worn, and if the bag gets lost, Booq’s Terralinq service creates a way for some kind soul to return the bag to its rightful owner.
