Slappa Ballistix P-TAC 17-inch Laptop Bag Review


Carries More Than Notebooks

Most people use a computer for just about everything; to do their jobs, for entertainment, and even to run their lives.  Laptop comptuers are more popular because they fit hand-in-hand with people on the go.  One of the travesties I’ve seen is how many people buy a really nice notebook, but either don’t have a laptop bag or just shove in in a cheap one that doesn’t protect it.

A good quality laptop case should last through several laptop upgrades, and should be large enough to accomodate the size of your computer plus all of its accessories.  One of the newest bag manufacturers on the scene is Slappa gear, who have been making quality gear to protect today’s electronics.  Today we are reviewing the Slappa Ballistix P-Tac Pro Shoulder bag, which is not only ideal for notebooks, but for gamers, DJs, or just about anyone who has electrics carry.


  • Water and tear-resistant 1680-D ballistic nylon
  • Quilted inner lining with super-cush padding on all panels
  • 2 Hard underbelly outer bumpers for additional protection
  • Mirro plated alloy clasps and adjustable shoulder strap
  • Manufacturer-direct 360 Day Extended Warranty
  • Ideal for airport carry-on, 15.4″ and 17″ notebooks + power bricks, books, documents, travel accessories and gadgets
  • DJ Use: Ideal for Seato, Laptop, LP, Headphones and cords
  • Gamer use: Ideal for Wii, Xbox and Playstation gaming consoles + power bricks, headphones and joysticks.

When you see this bag you probably ask, “How can one bag look so good, stand out from the crowd and pack all this quality into a low price?” Well my friend most can’t pull it off, but we don’t do things like most others. First off, we didn’t hold back when it came to the design and build quality of these bags. We challenge you to find any other brand of bag that is in the $125.00 range and uses such high quality 1680 denier ballistic nylon, twill nylon inner lining with quilted stitch padding, industrial strength alloy clasps, custom molded zipper pullers and outer bottom plastic runners to add further protection for your precious gear. If you want to spend less than $100 you’re most likely getting a lower grade nylon OR polyester, no inner lining and plastic clips and zipper pullers. To find in another brand the features that we offer, you’ll likely have to spend AT LEAST $200, and most of the bags that compare to this bag are in the $300 range. How are we able to do this? Very simple, we don’t overcharge you as do most of the other brands.

Now let’s talk about the features of this bag. First off, it’s a big roomy bag. 1500 cubic inches is a ton of space. You can fit one OR two 17” laptops in this bad boy (so or course it also fits 15.4” laptops), and we’ve had many customers who told us they can fit their 18” laptops in here. There are 9 storage areas, and with all these pockets you’ll get MANY small gadgets, peripherals and essentials into this bag. This is a great LAN bag for gamers, we have received MANY mails from DJ’s who are using it for their Serato rig OR as a LP bag, countless numbers of college students who tell us they use the bag for their laptop + books and MANY, MANY travelers who tell us this is a perfect carry-on bag. You probably think we’re saying all this to try and sell you, but we’re extremely confident that if you do your research you’re soon figure out that you will not find a better quality bag on the market at this price.
