Great backpack
by Valued Customer on February 10, 2018
Verified Purchase

We are a bit fussy about backpacks and have not liked many kinds through. This one was a very pleasant surprise. It is light and has the needed padding but no extra chunky bits here and there. There are many pockets for this and that and a space for a smaller laptop and a large section that could take a larger one or other items. There is also a nice adjustable front strap to help hold the sides and distribute weight. I have not tested the weatherproof aspect but I expect it will work well for that too. This is a really nice backpack.

Well built, water resistant nice size backpack
by Valued Customer on February 07, 2018
Verified Purchase

First impressions are very good. Seems to be very well-built. It is comfortable to wear with padded shoulder straps in back panel. Zippers are a little harder to operate but works well. Have never seen zippers like this before. They have a coating over the top of them to keep water out. Such a great idea. I have not worn it out in the pouring down rain yet but have sprinkle water on top and it seems to keep things dry. This is a nice size backpack with plenty of room for lots of your gear. It has pockets everywhere. Inside the pockets are also other smaller compartments. Top has a small very soft line pocket for any items you don't want to get scratched. Has two water bottle pockets on the sides with a top strap to secure them. Back pocket is quite large and padde. Around 10. 5� x 16�. Great for laptops or other items you need to secure. There is also another padded pocket inside the back pocket around 10. 5� x 12�. Main middle compartment is around 12� x 19“. It also has two more zip pockets inside that area. Front of bag also has a zipper that leads to another fairly decent size pocket. Very versatile. Looking forward to using it for many years to come. Nice investment.

Awesome backpack
by Valued Customer on November 04, 2018

This is a very well designed and constructed backpack. I bought a bunch of other bags looking for the right one, and returned them all. I wasn't 100% sure about this bag at first but after trying a half dozen others I realized how good this one is. Hardly any other bags are this water resistant. And it's not some wimpy thing that collapses as soon as you put it down. It stands straight up if you have anything in it. And of course it protects your laptop very well. I've got a 2017 Macbook Pro with an Incase Icon sleeve (which increases the size a lot, 11'' x 15. 5'' to be exact), and it just fits in the laptop compartment comfortably. Also you can fit a ton of stuff in the main compartment, and I actually like the fact that there are not too many different pockets and compartments. Makes things simpler. It's bigger than your average day pack though, so if you just want to carry your laptop and lunch to work it might be overkill. In that case go for the MPB25. All in all, a great backpack I can easily recommend.

Great backpack. Super sturdy, keeps things protected.

Great backpack. Ordered the smaller one as well but too small for me. Good size. Awesome construction. Fits my 17 inch laptop in the main compartment. A 15 could fit in the back one. Pouch on front of backpack makes for easy access to my laptop charger and other cables. Very comfortable to wear. Keeps it's shape very well. Waterproof zippers. Ballistic nylon keeps things safe, and has soft compartment on top for sunglasses. Would definitely buy again

Solid backpack, nice size. A bit heavy and a magnet for pet fur

AVAILABLE POCKETS and OTHER FEATURESThere is a variety of pockets as you would expect: Front vertical Middle: This is the largest Top small Back, computer Side drinkThere was a handle on top. At first I didn't realize it was there as it was so tightly integrated. Two shoulder straps with a sternum strapFront vertical pocket: Surprisingly roomy. It measured at 10W� X 19H�. You could put a pair of shoes in here. Or a towel. Depth will encroach on the middle pocket. Two side drink pockets hold a Nalge bottle base nicely and the tuck out of the way elastic straps that have nice tabs to grip with, hold the tops of these drink bottles well. They do not go over the body of the bottle. Back Computer pocket has a section for a laptop (10. 5W x 16H�, your typical 15� laptop) and a sleeve for a pad (10 x 12�)Middle pocket is the largest (12W x 20H x 5D�) and can hold quite a bit of stuff. In this there are two zippered pockets, one toward back at 10W x 7D�. One in the front and open mesh (10W x 5D�) I used the open mesh one for connectors. In that front section there are some loops ostensibly for pens. There are 6 above one another for a total of 12. Loops were so large, not so much for pens but maybe cords looped in. Pens would not stay. There is also a zippered pocket on top (9W X 7H�) toward the front that is advertised to hold sunglasses as it is padded. I found it a great spot for a wallet, cell phone and important stuff like keys. MATERIALThis backpack has a rough black surface. Not shiny like most ballistic nylon ones. The one negative is that it holds pet hair like crazy. The zippers all have a plastic lining, I assume to make them waterproof, but on first use mostly served to make them hard to open. Some of the zippers (like the computer compartment and the small compartment on the top and front), have loops that the zipper tab can slide into, to keep the zipper from working open (or being easy for someone to open it without you knowing). I liked that feature. The main compartment does not as you have two zippers that meet. This makes this one handy when you shove it under the seat in front of you, to access your stuff. The straps have a sternum snap so, you can be sure the straps don't slip off. I had to use this feature because the straps did have that tendency. One time I somehow misconnected the sternum strap and it was a fight to get it undone. Since this backpack is quite sturdy with strong material and such, I think it runs on the heavy side at 2. 5 pounds. My other backpack a Case Logic comes in at 1. 15 pounds, mind you that one is not weather proof. USAGEMy first usage was on a vacation trip. I knew I was going to be loaded down with a checked bag and a carry on, so my hands needed to be free and my stuff (like wallet, cell phone and keys) had to be secure and accessible. I used the laptop bag as a means of stashing my purse, but still having room to carry stuff. My fairly large purse sat in the bottom of the laptop bag easily. I used the top pocket as my important item spot (wallet, cell phone and keys were put here). The laptop and ipad in the computer pocket. The wires for everything (ipad, cell phone, fitbit) in the zippered pouch in the middle front except my macbook charger, that was huge so was on the bottom with the purse, along with my mouse. In the flat zippered pocket in the back I had all the paperwork, maps and documentation. Emergency chocolate (yes that is a real thing) was in the front pocket. I could put the back under the seat in front of me, no problem. When I needed to grab it, I would use the top handle. The one thing, this bag lacked was the typical mix of pockets in the middle section. My inexpensive case logic had a bunch of them and I could organize pens, post-its, a brush. Odds and ends. A few more pockets would have been nice in this section. .

Another wonderful Pelican case
by Valued Customer on February 23, 2018

This has to be the nicest backpack I have ever seen. It's lightweight and well-balanced (I am 5'6'' and it feels very comfortable on my back). There are nicely padded slots inside for storing things like iPads and laptops. It's a good size for traveling for long walks, or for carrying into an airport. I like the clip in the middle of the main straps that lets you attach it across your chest. This baby is not going to fall off while you walk or run. The zippers are unusual (that's because of the waterproofing) and that makes them a tiny bit hard to operate but it's not a show stopper. I like it. The only real caveat I'd give is that the part that's directly in contact with your back is soft but not terribly pliable. It's not uncomfortable but it might make it a little tough to cram the backpack under the seat in front of you, especially on a puddle-jumper. That is not a criticism by any means. You buy a Pelican because it's the best way to protect your 'stuff' and this one keeps that promise. It's just something to be aware of. This is my new go-to backpack for traveling.

Pockets galore

Pelican is a household name and an industry standard for for heavy duty indestructible cases, that are frequently uses by professionals in many industries, including military. I'm glad to learn that Pelican has expanded its product selection to include such consumer items as phone cases, backpacks, etc. The MPB35, weatherproof backpack is built to protect your mobile equipment: laptop, tablet PC, wires, chargers, documents, etc. While it won't compare with a hard plastic case, , I've not seen a more durable or tougher backpack. The fabric used in this backpack is tough, almost rigid. Unfortunately, the straps lack good cushioning; the cushioning Pelican choose to use is moderately hard. The zippers are also hard to operate. They do not open or slide easily due to being designed to be water resistant. This makes zippers feel heavy, and they often feel stuck, especially in areas where the zipper turns from vertical to horizontal. On a positive note, the backpack offers a lot of different pockets and compartments. Lastly, I would find it difficult to justify the expense (due to the high cost of this backpack) unless I had certain equipment that is much, much more valuable. Overall, this is a top quality product worth your consideration.
