    Pelican S130 Reviews

    ProGear S130 Sport Elite Laptop Backpack is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for travel and around town. I bought this backpack to take on a trip to Hawaii with me. I do *not* check my primary camera, lenses or laptops. Flew under the seat in front of me in this bag: Canon 5D MK II Canon 24-70 L Canon 70-200 IS II 580 EX II Cables, Batteries, Chargers Macbook Pro 15'' iPad Change of clothes notes: Getting your camera out of the bag is not a quick process. There could be a little more support on the bottom - it is a soft material and your camera takes all the weight of anything on top.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Laptop pocket is very stiff This is a unique product. If I were going to Patagonia or the Outback that I had to take the laptop, this would be the bag for sure. If I needed to protect my hardware from a hostile environment, this would be the bag. The however is, the stiff nature of the protective pocket for the laptop is against your back as you wear the bag and this is just not comfortable for me. My travel is more urban in nature so the compromise was not warranted for me so I returned the bag. Build quality was really good. B&H customer service was very good.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plastic bar attached to shoulder straps broke after 2nd use After my second time using the bag in the field, the plastic bar at the top of the plastic laptop case area that attaches to the shoulder strap snapped off (bad design) rendering the pack useless. I am going through the online process online with pelican and I am not impressed....overall bad design and bad customer service experience with Pelican.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well Made...But not quite large enough for a small backpack. I actually returned this backpack. Not because of any manufacturing problem but for the lack of utility I was after. I needed a second backpack to act as my personal bag when I fly. My first carry on bag is a full size Lowepro camera backpack which carries an amazing amount of my kit. I needed this second back pack to fit under the seat in front of me, carry my laptop and have enough room for my documents and personal items needed for long flights. The idea was also that I could either fit some of my main photo/video kit from my over packed backpack in the small sectional storage or use this as a small in field travel bag when I wanted a lighter weight option than my lowepro. So the problems for me were, the hard laptop case seemed to me to pose a problem when needing to stuff the bag in small places and the upper personal section just didn't give nearly enough room. I thought the laptop section might be big enough for my laptop and 8 1/2x11 documents and perhaps even a slim hard drive or two but it proved to really only be able to hold the laptop. It would have been great at that. No laptop would have broken ever. Sadly when wanting the bag to double duty as a light weight kit bag I found myself realizing that the laptop hard case was unnecessary for that type of day jaunt and would be an uncomfortable waste of space. So in the end. If your laptop is the top of your needs on your back and you need it to be safe. This is the bag for you, as long as you aren't also needing to bring an amazing amount else with you as well. Which seems weird. Are you traveling to the ends of the world to write an email or take a photo/make a video? If its the later you're going to need more gear and the laptop is probably safer at the hotel or campsite than in daily travel. Cool looking bag though!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bag not much space... I like the bag. It fits my laptop just fine and I never worry it will be damaged. Nor do I worry about camera damage anymore. It also comes with spacers if your laptop should be smaller in size to keep it from shifting. There are adjustable compartments for the camera as well. However, it is a bit deceiving in that the front is almost all camera storage and the top compartment is not separated from the bottom camera case. You actually have to remove the camera case from the top. So if you are storing cords for your laptop or chargers it will be sitting atop the camera case and you will have to remove all items at the top of the bag to get the camera case out. There are two small zipper compartments at the top, one inside and one on the outside of the bag and two side pouches. However this bag works okay enough for me and is light to carry when fully packed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pelican S130 I purchased this bag prior to a two week trip to London and Paris. The bag performed extremely well, although there are a few negatives. I'll start with the positive features.I carried this bag on a daily basis throughout London and Paris. It normally held my iPad in the clamshell, and my Nikon D5100, Tamron 18-270, Nikkor 50mm prime, Bower 8mm fisheye, GoPro & mount, extra batteries and miscellaneous cables. I often kept a light jacket in the upper portion of the backpack. The bag held up extremely well to the rainy weather and crowded conditions. The bag fits snugly under a standard airliner seat, though not in the overhead compartments. TSA had no issues with the bag. The hardshell case protects anything inside quite well and the padding helps to maintain comfort while wearing the pack. The two side pockets are large and their elastic bands are effective at securing contents. I commonly keep my iphone, power bricks, cables, and other incidental items in these pockets.Where the bag is lacking is in interior storage. The pack area has a 22 liter volume which is quite acceptable for a daypack. Easily 2/3 of that volume is used by the camera case. The camera case is removable and can be zipped closed separately from the pack, however the case is loose in the pack. Items placed in the upper part of the pack can easily slip behind the interior case and disappear. As the case is quite large the open space for inserting more gear is limited. The bag is also quite heavy on it's own weighing in at several pounds empty. Fully loaded I had it around 35 pounds. The shoulder straps were a bit uncomfortable with that much weight. The chest strap broke off (though not due to fault with the bag) and has proven quite difficult to reattach. As an amateur photographer who has a common need to carry my laptop as well as my camera gear, I find this bag to be quite useful. It's not something that I use every day, but when I have a need for both my camera and computer this bag fits my needs more than adequately.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great All in 1 I was looking for a single backpack that would provide enough space for my photography gear and Laptop ease to access for travel and flexible. I have found that the S130 is great I carry my Cannon and 4 Lenses as well as a goPro kit regularly. I have not found myself in a position that I haven't had what I needed. I can get to my camera when I need to and you're not digging through other parts of a back pack. The pull out is wonderful for those times I am camping and only need my camera gear. I would Highly recumbent this Backpack for a daypack traveler or regular commuting Photographer. I can be picky about certain things and I do wish one of the pockets had a key clip. Often when I'm traveling I don't want keys in my pocket. Good Luck with yours.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from S130 Sport Elite Laptop Backpack. Well it's great for traveling I was able to put my Canon D5 and a two lens. ?On the top part of the backpack I got a ape case Cubeze QB39 for extra lens. but I used to case my Mavic Pro for travel. ?I couldn't use this backpack if I was going on a job it wouldn't hold all my equipment. But for basic travel it's great..

    Will it take a 15.6 Dell laptop?
    Asked by: Kurt W.
    Not sure, i have a Macbook pro 15 in it. I also carry around 4 hard drives, in ear case, chargers, canon 5D mark iv, 3 lenses, and a GoPro. It safely holds a ton of stuff and is kinda comfortable. It's survived 8 tours and idk how many countries very well.

    are there zipper locks on the main compartments?

    are there zipper locks on the main compartments?
    Asked by: Dennis
    No it's an open top design once you flip up that main lid. Now thinking about that, it would be nice to have a cinch top or zippered closure, however I have never had an issue with mine, and I've been through heat, rain, snow, cross country road trips, and international flights with no issues. I've even say on it like a chair at the airport while waiting in line. It's held up great and would definitely recommend it

    Will this backpack hold a 17in MacBook Pro?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Pelican ProGear S130 is best suited for slim laptops like the Ultrabook series. For a 17 Mac laptop, I would recommend the Pelican U100 Urban Elite, instead.B&H # PEU100BPB ? Mfr # 0U1000-0003-110
