Good quality, I'm able to fit all my gear including my ronin gimbal inside instead of carrying multiple hard cases.

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..

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.

The product is very nice well constructed with lots of storage. Would of been nice to see a RFID pocket for wallets and passports but not a deal breaker. b&h was very fast on shipping and got the bag faster than expected also I shopped around for this bag and found they were the best price. In some cases considerable

Not much of a back packer, but I was attracted to this because of the hardshell case for my 15 laptop - very nice in that regard. There is enough room as well to store one camera and additional lenses. The only downside for me - the reason that it didn't get a 5-star - the top flap will spill whatever you have in it if you're not certain that you've buckled it. Other than that, this thing is a tank.

Nice bag to protect your gear, but too heavy.

I originally purchased this bag because I fractured my arm and could not bring my usual Pelican rolling case for work. In the padded compartment, I was able to fit my Pro body, a 70-200mm, 24-70mm, and some accessories/batteries. The compartment on top is pretty small but I used it to pack my chargers and other things. The laptop enclosure fitted my 15-inch MacBook Pro nicely. Overall, it was a nice bag, but it was extremely heavy with all my equipment. The bag weighs 7lbs (around 3 kg) when it's empty. With my gear, it was weighs between 26-33 lbs (around 12-15kg). Besides the laptop enclosure, there is no water protection either. For me, the S130 was not practical at all. After my fracture healed, I sold the S130, went back my Pelican rolling case, and purchased a waterproof backpack from Patagonia instead.

Awesome adventure backpack

I'm a Wildland Firefighter on a Helitack crew and needed a way to protect my sensitive electronics while traveling across the Western US during fire season. This backpack has held 1 MacBook, 1 MacBook Pro, Sony a6000, 3 lenses, and various accessories and random stuff. It's sturdy, versatile, and has met my expectations. It kept everything safe in the back of a pickup down miles of dusty dirt roads

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 # 0U1000-0003-110http://bhpho.to/1d4cOIz

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.
