Will Backpack Hold a Large Laptop?

Will the large Vivitar backpack hold a laptop with the dimensions of 16.5 x 11 x 1.5? The width (11") will be tight, but I believe it will fit. After owning this backpack for a short time, I believe it is the best backpack on the market for the cost. Very good quality and very funcyional!

Very roomy, confortable pack!

By

from Stoneville, NC  -  Photo Enthusiast

I am a really big guy. This pack fits me great, and I have plenty of mobility! The bag has more than enough room for my equpment, and enough spare room for some hiking gear for a day trip. I have had other packs, and have never been completely happy with them. Even some more expensive packs! The only down side is it does not have a pocket for a water bottle. That would make the perfect hiking camera backpack.

Good Bag

By

from Tucson  -  Casual Photographer

Very handy when i need to travel with laptop. I packed a D300, 35mm lens, flashlight and a battery grip and its spacious enough for at least 2 more lens. The padding could have been thicker though. But its sufficient. The top storage compartment is big enuff to pack my lens cleaning kit and batteries and even my laptop charger in.

Great bag for the dialy urban grind

By

from Atlanta, GA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This bag may be too light for outdoorsman use, but it's perfect for trekking through airports and getting to and from an office on a daily basis. It fits all of my most-used camera gear, a laptop, an iPad, a pair of very large headphones, enough cords and cables to make it all work, and has enough space left for a couple of snacks for the road. It makes a great carry-on bag and the separate laptop compartment makes it easy to get through security without unpacking all of your other stuff. I love the adjustable waist belt for taking the load off your shoulders while hiking through a big airport, yet it's easy to tuck the belt away when you don't need it. My one and only complaint: every "monolithic compartment" camera bag I've seen uses foam dividers covered in hook-and-loop material to keep lenses, bodies, flash units, and other stuff separate and secure. This bag is the same, but the shape and size of the foam dividers provided means that you are very limited in how the dividers can be arranged within the large compartment. I had to use some foam dividers from a couple of my other old bags in order get a tight fit for my camera gear.

Meets my needs perfectly.

By

from Michiana  -  Photo Enthusiast

I am disabled and needed a bag for a full range of equipment that I could access while on crutches. This is perfect. We travel a lot and this looks like it will protect my equipment very well.

Review of the Vivitar Camera Backpack

By

from Elon, NC  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have been looking for a camera backpack that had a separate compartment for my camera equipment and my personal items. The Vivitar backpack has room for one or two camera bodies plus several lenses, a flash and other misc equipment. It is very well constructed and very comfortable to wear. This backpack will last me for many years to come. I will use the back pack for international mission trips with my church plus outings with the local camera club when I will need to be hands free to take photographs. It is a great backpack for the money and I highly recommend it.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Lee F  This was the best sling backpack for the money at the time I bought it. Although it's clearly not as well made as many other options, the important parts of the bag have held up surprisingly well and it is comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
FITRAKIS E  I purchased this bag a while back and really like it. My question is can I buy additional dividers for it?
VICTORIA Y  I'm not sure if you can buy additional dividers; they may only come with the bag.
Shopper  How many lenses can this bag safely house?
MAIRAMDBK K  "I have a NIkon D7000, three lenses Tokina 11-16, Nikon 35, Nikon 80-200, macro-micro rings, flash, remote control, about 10 or 12 lens filters, lens cleaning kit, 20 AA batteries, lens blower, remote control with a cord, 2 chargers, 2x lens extender and some other small stuff. Everything fits well and there is still more space. One can attach a small tripod, which is a plus. But I would not suggest this to use as a field bag, it is bulky, not easy to use and difficult to operate. The main compartment door is small, zippers are of a poor quality. One needs to always keep an eye on them to avoid accidental opening. The material of the bag is of a poor quality, too. Personally I would invest little more money for a bigger bag with a single opening compartment for all your belongings and get Think Bank belt with lens, camera body, flash pouches for use in field or for everyday work."
