The black U100 Urban Elite Backpack with 15-17" Laptop Compartment from Pelican delivers total functionality and ergonomic design in a strong pack designed to hold either your 15" or 17" Apple laptop. In addition, its hard shell, impact protected front panel unzips to reveal another safe compartment large enough for an iPad or tablet plus organizer for small stuff such as pens, note pads, or business cards. This panel also serves to protect the pack in case of drops or severe contact during your travels.
Your laptop is held securely within one of the pack's two cavities. This first compartment is an ABS thermoplastic (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), watertight and crushproof, and tested to meet IP67 (Ingress Protection) standards of 3' for 30 minutes. An EQ valve helps control pressure while traveling. The second zippered cavity is for anything else you might want to take along-clothes, documents or collateral material. An additional rear zippered compartment provides for extra storage capability. Access to this top-loading pack is via the easy open push button latch and easy throw zippers.
The U100 is made from 1000 Denier Kodra Nylon and is polyurethane backed for added strength. Kodra nylon has a rougher, fuzzier texture than traditional nylon. It's more abrasion-resistant and generally more lightweight. The front plate is hard polypropylene
The U100 is carried by its padded, adjustable shoulder straps and supported by a sternum strap to help with stability while walking. The pack also comes with Pelican's rigid, well-balanced, rubber molded top carry handle. Compressions straps help you adjust the overall footprint of the pack allowing you to expand or contract the overall size to suit the load you are carrying. The back panel is S-curved and ventilated for maximum comfort. As a bonus, the bottom of the pack has sling straps that are used for attaching your jacket or bed roll. And, since a day in the field can be long and arduous, Pelican has provided a hidden water bottle pocket on the side of the pack.
This pack is made by Pelican-a company world recognized as a leader in the design and manufacturer of protective bags and packs for amateur, professional and military use. The backpack comes with a one-year warranty while the plastic casing comes with Pelican's lifetime guarantee of excellence.
