Betabrand Under-the-Jack Laptop Bag Betabrand's ultra-slim bag is like a laptop sleeve that's been fitted with adjustable straps, so you can carry it with the same convenience as a backpack.


If all you’re bringing for the day is a laptop (and maybe a pocket-sized Zolt charger), carrying it on a messenger or a backpack just seems all sorts of overkill. I mean, are you really going to bring a bulky bag just to use its laptop compartment? The Betabrand Under-the-Jack Laptop Bag offers an infinitely more convenient option.

While it’s, technically, a backpack, the bag actually just has enough space to accommodate a single laptop. For all intents and purposes, it’s actually a laptop sleeve, but with shoulder straps, so you can wear it on your back where it’s out of the way and won’t tie up your hands. Even better, it’s so slim that it can fit conveniently under any outerwear layer, all without making you look like you grew a hump in your back overnight.


The Betabrand Under-the-Jack Laptop Bag comes in two sizes: one for 13-inch laptops and another for 15-inchers. Both measure just 1.5 inches thick and that’s complete with a padded backside to ensure your comfort while carrying the bag. As such, it can be totally inconspicuous when layered under a jacket or a hoodie, apart from being absolutely convenient when finding yourself in crowded places. Features include a zippered main compartment, a secondary zippered compartment for small items, adjustable padded shoulder straps, and 100 percent polyester construction.


Slated to ship December, the Betabrand Under-the-Jack Laptop Bag is priced at $61.20.
