abunda_amazon_reviews After spent hours looking for the perfect backpack to put my electronics I found this one. It worth the price, this thing is a tank. It lacks of pockets compared to other alternatives, but is roomy, rigid and it holds my Asus Zephryrus M with no problem.

Not surprisingly, the backpacks that cost the most money have either one or both of these things in common: they are made by a well known brand name/company, and they are highly specialized toward a certain niche. Even though both apply to this backpack, at $149 it isn’t over priced for what you get. This backpack is targeted toward gamers, those 18 to 49-years-old, more men than women, who report spending an average of 6.5 hours playing video games per week, and playing with friends and family members at least half of that time. Acer, of course, makes the Acer computer. On the Amazon product page for this backpack is a suggested trio of products which includes the Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop, 15.6"; the HAVIT 5 Fans Laptop Cooling Pad for 14-17 Inch Laptop, Cooler Pad with LED Light, Dual USB 2.0 Ports, Adjustable Mount Stand; and of course the Acer Predator Utility Gaming Backpack, Water Resistant and Tear Proof Travel Backpack Fits and Protects Up to 17.3" Predator Gaming Laptop. That little package wraps up at the tidy sum of $1,668.23. Acer makes several backpacks which pair nicely with their computers, but the Acer Predator M-Utility 1680D Ballistic Laptop Backpack is the top-of-the-line. When I saw the word “Ballistic” in its name, I excitedly thought I was getting a backpack with bullet-proof armor, designed in response to school shootings. Not quite. The term ballistic refers to the Nylon fabric that is used on this backpack. Nylon, developed by the DuPont Company as a substitute for Japanese silk, became very popular in the late 1930s as the new material for women’s hosiery. But as what would become WWII heated up in Europe, DuPont shifted commercial production of nylon to military support. Nylon fibers were used as silk replacement in parachutes, glider tow ropes, aircraft fuel tanks, shoelaces, mosquito netting, and hammocks. As America’s involvement in the war increased, DuPont scientists wanted to find a way to protect the men in the US Army Air Corp who were often wounded in the upper torso from shrapnel when their planes were shot or as they were parachuting. Another word for this shrapnel, flak, is a shortened form of the German word fliegerabwehrkanone, meaning anti-aircraft gun. DuPont invented the flak jacket, the toughest nylon of the time with metal plates sewn into the lining. DuPont’s ballistic nylon didn’t stop bullets, but it did help save lives. The flak jacket has evolved into the sophisticated body armor, usually with some type of Kevlar, worn by today’s soldiers and policemen. Two things distinguish the ballistic nylon from regular nylon: the high denier nylon thread and the ballistic weave. The denier is a measure of the thickness of the yarn. Ballistic nylon will be made from the higher denier nylon thread, usually 1000d and above. The higher the denier, the thicker, heavier, and tougher the thread will be. More important to ballistic nylon than the denier is the weave. Certain weaves are conducive to preventing snags and tears. A dense, tight weave will resist rips and can be impervious to rain. This is the ballistic nylon that the Acer Predator M-Utility 1680D Laptop Backpack is made with. It provides excellent protection in all kinds of weather. If your backpack gets stuck halfway in an elevator, bus or subway door, I’m sure you’d rather have the outer material made of ballistic nylon! The interior fits up to a 17” laptop, with room for your gaming keyboard, headset, mouse, cords, and plenty of other accessories. The second interior section is compartmentalized with thick modular padding. This area also has one large and three small slit pockets, and nylon straps. Two tall side pockets, a front pocket with a media port and a rain fly, and a top compartment make this the most over-built, extremely padded, roomy backpack I have ever owned! I haven’t even mentioned the subtle teal trim accents, waterproof exterior zippers, well-padded shoulder straps, luggage sleeve, substantial zipper pulls, and the all-around bad-A vibe you get just being in the same room with this big boy. It’s intimidating, for sure.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 9, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Do you like over-the-top? This backpack.;;Mary V
