Timbuk2 knows what it’s doing when it comes to bags, so seeing it apply that expertise to a MacBook-focused option is exciting. Made with Apple in mind, but not exclusive to the company’s stores, the new Slide MacBook Backpack ($79) is certainly worth checking out. Coming in four color combinations, this one is made to fit an entire Apple product lineup, including an 11”, 13”, or 15” Mac, an iPad, an iPhone, and more.
The materials vary depending on what color you choose; waterproof TPU and ripstop nylon are consistent, with materials such as tweed used in some models. The computer and tablet holders are padded to protect your devices, while the iPhone pocket is scratchproof, and has a port for headphones. Like all Timbuk2 products, Slide is backed by a lifetime guarantee.
