Everki’s dedication to quality, innovation, versatility and continuous improvement comes through in its products, and the Concept is no exception. One of the company’s most feature-rich products to date, it is the culmination of two years of research and development into what customers want and need, and what makes a bag work. If the customer is looking for a cheap bag with a ton of features, there are plenty of options out there. If he or she wants a nice, high-end bag with limited features, there are a few good options. The Concept brings its wearer the best of both worlds.
This bag sports many of the quality features for which Everki has come to be known – large zippers, leather handle, durable, water-resistant materials, ergonomic straps and back padding, Checkpoint-Friendly laptop compartment (fits up to 17.3”), and, of course, attractive design. Along with its laptop compartment, the Concept also features two additional large, zippered compartments, each strategically laid out to maximize space and functionality and outfitted with separate slots and pockets perfect for portable USB devices and other small and medium-sized items.
Everki’s latest endeavor also marks the debut of its patent-pending corner-guard protection system, which provides added padding to the areas laptop manufacturers have cited as the most frequently damaged. A sturdy hard-shell sunglass/gadget case, embedded discretely into its own zippered pocket, as well as a weight-distributing chest strap, water-repellent ballistic nylon exterior and weather cover, multi-function side pockets, and a slot for Kindle/iPad/tablet PC (in laptop compartment) round out this most recent addition to the catalogue. In addition, as with all Everki products, the Concept is backed by the company’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and world-class customer service.
Space, organization, quality, style… they’re all part of the Concept.
Does NOT fit Asus G73/G74/G75 Series, and Dell Alienware M18x notebooks. Please see our 18.4" laptop bags.
1. Checkpoint Friendly 17.3" Laptop/Tablet Compartment
It is no myth that airport security checkpoints impose more and more rules and restrictions all the time. Breeze through security with the Concept’s Checkpoint Friendly laptop/tablet compartment. Simply open the compartment 180 degrees, lay the bag flat on the conveyor, and watch your device pass through the x-ray machine without the mess and inconvenience of removing it – and should you for any reason be required to take it out of its slot, you can do so easily, without rearranging the rest of the bag’s contents. Fast, simple, and effective.
2. Shell-Protected Quick-Access Sunglass/Gadget Case
Protecting your expensive eyewear and other delicate gear has never been simpler. The Concept’s innovative, zippered hard-shell case, embedded into the top of the bag where contents are under the least amount of pressure, provides a good fit for glasses, sunglasses or other small, fragile articles. It also doubles as a spot to store your phone, mp3 player or portable media device and comes equipped with a headphone cable outlet for added, no-mess functionality.
3. Patent-Pending Corner-Guard Protection System
Your laptop is one of your most prized possessions, so it deserves special treatment. The Concept goes the extra mile to protect your computer from bumps and scratches; in addition to a felt lining and ample padding, this bag’s laptop compartment features Everki’s patent-pending corner-guard protection system – molded shock-absorbing corners that protect your device around the edges, which are the areas manufacturers have identified as the most vulnerable and commonly damaged. Let Everki take care of your cargo, so you can focus on the job or on the journey.
4. High-Grade Leather Handle and Accents
Not only is the Concept light and practical, but it also boasts a ton of quality features and details that add to its stylish appeal – leather accents, high-grade nylon straps, oversized zippers, and a reflective metal logo, to name a few. Everki also included a leather handle to provide a firm and comfortable grip on your cargo, and all of the Concept's accents are manufactured using the best quality materials to maintain a sharp and professional appearance that stands the test of time.
5. Water-Repellant Ballistic Nylon Exterior and Weather Cover
Everki takes the safety of your belongings as seriously as you do. That’s why the Concept utilizes a durable, water-repellent nylon shell that minimizes potential harm posed by spilled drinks by localizing droplets and allowing them to easily wipe away. An additional weather cover, stowed in a stash pocket on the bag’s underside, stretches to neatly slip over its entire exposed surface to protect contents from rain, snow and dust. Accidents, spills, and bad weather are bound to happen, but they are of little concern with the Everki Concept.
6. Spacious, Well-Organized Compartments
Along with its laptop/tablet compartment, Everki outfitted this backpack with ample extra space. Main compartment features large zippers and a quick-access storage area ideal for papers and file folders, separated by a divider from peripherals and other accessories and with plenty of room left over for a sweater or coat to keep both tourist and professional warm on those long international flights. Another spacious and versatile, zippered compartment contains a range of slots and pockets for business cards, USB drives, keys, and other smaller items, as well as a larger pocket perfect for adaptors and other essentials.
You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that with any product in the Everki family, you never have to worry about discovering a flaw or defect after the end of the warranty period. Everki’s Limited Lifetime Warranty protects your purchase against manufacturing defects over the entire life of the product.
The Concept’s top-front pocket is convenient for keeping gum, tissue, or travel documents on hand and holds shut using a magnetic closure. An additional pocket on either side of the bag, equipped with compression straps, provides quick access to larger items like water bottles without having to remove the backpack.
Carrying a laptop and all of its accessories can wear a person out quickly. Luckily for the weary traveler, the Concept comes with pillow-soft shoulder straps and a padded back panel that pitch in to help you shoulder the load over long periods of time. Additional mesh padding and deep airflow channels go even further to keep you dry, cool, and comfortable.
The Concept's weather cover compartment doubles as an extra pocket when the cover is removed and/or in use. Its discrete location makes it unnoticeable and thus ideal for stashing money or other important documents while traveling.
Convenient mini-straps on the front of the Concept’s shoulder straps allow you to temporarily store and retrieve items like sunglasses and ear buds quickly and easily while at the cash register or on your way through check-in at the airport, making for a smooth transaction without added hassle.
Today’s tech-savvy traveler needs a bag that can carry a lot of weight without adding to it. To achieve this, Everki created its Weight-Distributing Strap System, which distributes weight load evenly across the torso to reduce muscle strain and keep you feeling light on your feet with every step you take while wearing the Concept.
With Everki, form and function are not mutually exclusive. In addition to a range of convenient pockets and slots that ensure contents stay in their designated places, the Concept features a high-contrast orange lining that fits in with the bag’s overall theme and makes items easier to find under any circumstance.
The Concept’s size 10 zippers are larger and more durable than the hardware found on most other bags in its class. Its strong, all-metal Everki zipper pulls are built to last and the laptop compartment features pulls with lock-holes to help you protect your valuables while you are on-the-go.
