Booq has released a number of recent options for lugging around MacBooks, and the Taipan shock ($95) is the company’s newest. Taipan shock is currently the company’s least expensive backpack. It comes in black and can hold a 13” or 15” MacBook.
The exterior fabric on the lightweight backpack is a water-repellent polyester, and the laptop compartment uses thick padding and a water-repellent zipper to keep a MacBook safe and dry. As can be expected from a Booq bag, Taipan shock has a number of additional pockets, as well. Those pockets can hold additional electronic accessories, and a zippered front pocket can even contain an iPad mini.
