March 16, 2006 As computers reach ubiquity, which they inevitably will, it is equally as inevitable that we will find better ways to carry and protect them. Accordingly, we figure it’s giving Slappa a pat on the back for their latest creation, the Velocity PRO Spyder laptop backpack. Apart from looking good (and we recognise it won’t suit everyone’s style), the bag features a thick rubber exoskeleton with rainproof PRO Grade Scuba-prene offering reinforced storage protection for all of your digital gear.

The Velocity PRO Spyder has 4 main compartments which also include lots of sub compartments for storing all of your laptop or DJ mixing accessories. Inside the main compartment is SLAPPA’s “Super Padded” laptop sleeve, ideal for oversized laptops up to 17.” A rear compartment incorporates a STAY COOL inner lining for storing cold goods and keeping them close at hand. Also included are combination locks for the main zipper compartments (which feature locking zipper heads) and a removable phone/pda/MP3 player case.

Other features include:

    Xtra-padded comfort shoulder straps Xtra-padded back support Plush jersey inner lining E.Z. grip SLAPPA handle Industrial strength zippers Dual rubber logo zipper pulls Zip-stop end caps 3-D rubber name card holder

“We focused on engineering a backpack unlike anything else out there,” says SLAPPA Communication Manager, Kylin Clevenger. “The Velocity Spyder is a direct result of our incorporating customer feedback into product engineering.”

The SLAPPA Velocity PRO Spyder is now available at for US$79.99.
