Kool Tools: Executive Backpack
If you're a road warrior who packs both a laptop and an iPad, Tenba's Roadie Executive Backpack should suit your traveling needs. It's great for photographers, filmmakers and anyone who hits the road with LOTS of tech gadgets.
It features a handsome and distinctive exterior design that matches the rest of the Roadie collection, and is built with three cascading storage sections: first for laptop, iPad and documents; second for tech accessories; and third for core business tools like pens and business cards. The cascading sections nest together when zipped shut, so the bag always maintains a slim profile.
The Roadie Executive sports a dual-pocket computer compartment that will hold both an iPad and a laptop up to 15 inches. The left side of the bag has a stretchy mesh pocket for a beverage or other items for quick access. The right side is home to one of Tenba's signature zippered side pockets, which can be accessed even while wearing both sides of the harness. It fits a wallet and passport for easy retrieval.
It's also tough. The exterior of the Roadie Executive Backpack is made from water-repellant 1680 denier black ballistic nylon, and includes matte black YKK zippers with molded zipper pulls. There's a padded and ventilated shoulder harness at the rear, along with a built-in trolley strap to slide over the extending handle of rolling luggage, and a padded, reinforced handle at the top that is comfortable to carry even when the bag is fully loaded.
The interior is made with ripstop nylon, with zippered window mesh pockets to carry loose items, and neoprene pockets for gadgets and larger accessories. Finally, the bag includes the same abrasion and water-resistant tarpaulin bottom panel that is used on other Tenba Roadie, Messenger and Discovery bags.
The slim design of this bag allows it to slide beneath the seat on any airplane, and its quick access side pockets put a beverage (on the left) and your passport (in the right pocket) within easy reach. The Roadie Executive Backpack is available immediately at a suggested retail price of US$169.95. For more info go to www.tenba.com .
