If you are in the market for a new backpack, you need to get your hands on the Booq Mamba Shift. Similar to most Booq packs, the Mamba Shift is a great looking backpack that is lightweight yet roomy enough to fit just about anything you need on your trek to the office or that weekend trip. Easily fitting any 13” to 17” Mac or PC laptop, the Mamba Shift is a full featured backpack with its elastic pop-out iPhone pockets integrated into the shoulder straps, a densely padded laptop compartment, easy-access to side pockets for quick access and storage and a cavernous main compartment with a plethora of accessory pockets. The Mamba Shift even features a durable ballistic nylon exterior with a water repellant coating that gives this urban looking pack a stylish look yet the real world protection from the elements you need.
The Mamba Shift has been my pack of choice the past six months and I don’t have a single regret. Its functionality and durability have been tested inside and out and it has passed with flying colors. One of the things I enjoy the most about the bag is the look. When I wear this thing I don’t know if it’s just a laptop backpack or whether I should pull the ripcord and wait for a parachute to come out. The look and design is unique to any other backpack I have seen yet the pockets and protection the bag gives my laptop shows the high attention to detail and design that Booq put into this pack. Other nice features include the separate accessory zipper pouch that easily fits my external hard drive, cables and earbuds, the Terralinq badge and serial number that gives me piece of mind in case I misplace this bag somewhere or some asshole takes it when I’m not looking, and the comfort factor as I am generally walking a few miles to and from work with it on. Overall, I highly recommend as you will not find a better all-purpose and comfortable laptop backpack out there.
