Review: Fashionable Laptop Backpack from Moshi


They say the best camera is the one that you have with you. That may be why the iPhone has become the most popular camera. But there are advantages to a Digital SLR especially with a nice lens. That's why you will want to carry the Arcus Backpack ($229.95) from Moshi, which is one of the best laptop backpacks. Especially with the optional DSLR Camera and Lens Insert ($29.95), which supports up to a 200mm lens.

I liked the Arcus's beautiful design and the choice of black or gray with tan trim. The laptop backpack offers multiple compartments and it seems like every time I use it, I find a new section! Apple users will appreciate the padded compartment, which can support a large laptop or tablet.




  • Beautiful design
  • Black or gray with tan trim
  • Multiple compartments
  • Optional DSLR Camera and Lens Insert
  • Padding laptop or tablet compartment


  • Pricey

Final Verdict

The Arcus laptop backpack from Moshi is not cheap, but it's reasonable for a high-end backpack, and given that it protects thousands of dollars worth of equipment, it's a good investment!
