Flexible frame suspension

The Beast18 features an innovative spring steel frame, which allows for both structure and packability. The flexible frame suspension provides comfort and torsion with movement, for an agile fit that moves with you and distributes loads evenly. When not in use, simply twist and fold the frame, and secure into the compression sack. The spring steel frame bounces back into its original shape when released.

An oversized front compartment extends to the bottom of the pack, while a zippered pocket inside protects your smaller items. Safely store valuable items in the small interior pocket with keyloop.

"Exactly what I needed"

Well made and easy for travel! This sleeve slides out of my bag easily for quick access and the water proofing is fantastic.

"Just what I was looking for"

A very functional stand-alone laptop sleeve/bag that can be used on its own, but is also form-fitting enough to fit into small backpacks as a protective sleeve.
