The MATRIX is a checkpoint friendly laptop bag that has a bit more flair than the average backpack and also has a lot more protection than most backpacks. Featuring 1680D ballistix nylon, and our CORE3 exoskeleton, the MATRIX offers ultimate protection for your 17 inch laptop. The inside of the bag is lined with plush tricot material and the dedicated checkpoint friendly laptop pocket has .25" of padding in every wall. For most, that would be enough protection, but we then take it one step further by adding a 2 hard molded underbelly runners to protect the bottom of the bag. The MATRIX backpack is designed to fit the Asus G73, the Alienware m17x and the MacBook Pro 17". Also featured are custom molded alloy zipper pullers with locking heads and a rear outer 'stay-cool" pocket - a cooler lined pocket for drinks-and because of the outer super-cush SLAPPA back pad you will NOT fell the drinks when you have the backpack on.
