Waterproof Back pack for an 18 inch behemoth

Alright, i'm bringing along an 18 inch laptop heft for on site map stitching work. any suggestions for a waterproof backpack that's field worthy? weatherproof is sufficient though. doesnt have to survive a sinking ship, cause i wont.

Well how much did you want to spend?

Just remove the logos and you basically have a standard military backpack with the option of a rain cover and tons of space, it should fit an 18" laptop

it's $110 at wal-mart doesn't seem to be too bad a bag at that price


$35 for the same style, apparently waterproof

You're a life saver. Anything writing 300 bucks is good.

Was wonder if this bag would fit the 18 inch laptop. MSI GT80 to be precise.

Might be a tight fit, plus that looks like it'd be heavy and bulky to carry around everyday

The water sealed feature of Pelican is a major plus though. I use Pelican cases during field works. I'm clueless regarding the fit for the laptop in the Pelican bag pack. Razer looks good, albeit the logo sighs

I own the peli backpack; Yes it is heavy; yes it is bulk. But get hit by car... your labop suvives with no scratches... so well I had distraction at the hospital.

tl;tr: heavy, bulky = a tank; yes it is a tank for a labtop

If you needed a laptop that resilient though I'd go for a tough book

How does MSI GT80 fit into the peli u100 in your opinion?

Keep the suggestion coming.

Oh.. overlooked that... its not just 18inc its thick.. I think it wont fit from the thickness. But for that Goliath you better get a trolley to save your spine from snapping :P

Both, the peli backpack plus that solid concrete block of IT engineering will hurt your back I suppose

That was all my suggestions lol otherwise there's tons of backpacks, maybe just go to a store and pick one out

Gonna assume that's a peli case there.

Thanks man. Any suggestion helps.

Yes. Peli trolley on google should find you online retailers for your region
