eBags Exclusive
  • Guaranteed for life under the eBags Lifetime Warranty
  • Uber organized with fully padded lockable laptop and tablet compartments, crush-proof AC adaptor garage and zippered water bottle pocket
  • Fits laptops 1.5” D x 12.25" W x 16.5" to 17.5" H if pad removed and tablet compartment is 8.125” W x 11.5” H
  • Easily converts from backpack to briefcase and includes vertical and horizontal luggage handle pass-thru panels
  • Well-padded vented Airmesh back panel and contoured backpack straps with removable adjustable shock-load sternum strap
  • True to the Professional series, there are a number of innovative interior features:
  • Fully padded and lockable laptop compartment - completely isolated from the contents of the pack. Easy access via an “L”-zip opening. Fits laptops as large as 1.5” thick x 12.25" wide x 16.5" tall (17.5" tall with the secondary pad removed)
  • Crush-proof AC-Adapter garage that isolates heavy (or fragile) accessories from the rest of the pack. Positioned at the bottom for better load balancing. Removable for those times when you need extra storage capacity
  • Top-load tablet pocket is fleece-lined for automatic glass cleaning, measures 8-1/8” wide x 11.5” tall, lays flat between the main and laptop compartment, and is lockable
  • Easy access middle compartment via an “L”-zip opening. A 4” deep shelf across the bottom provides a rigid flat surface for binders/folders/books without the classic “diaper butt” posture of most backpacks. 13” max height. Easily holds a 3” wide 3-ring binder. Because of the tapered shape of the pack, the compartment does become narrower at the top. When you need to pack a lot of volume, remove the AC Adapter garage, fold down the shelf, and take full advantage of the 12.25” width & 17.25” height
  • UPDATE: Diagonal slash pocket inside the middle compartment to help organize loose papers and folders. Added based on customer input
  • A front panel organizer that keeps you organized. We’ve eliminated any chance of stuff piling up at the bottom of the compartment by creating a 2-dimensional workspace free of clutter.The front organizer panel includes:
  • Three zippered “See What’s Where” mesh pockets
  • Two business card pockets
  • Two elastic pen loops plus one hidden pen pocket
  • One elastic-trimmed pouch pocket
  • UPDATE: All organizer panel pockets are now zippered based on customer input
  • ... and we always include a key leash
  • Exterior features:
  • Zippered side-mounted water bottle pocket
  • Vertical zippered “Napoleon” pocket on the face is perfect for boarding passes and is designed with YKK locking apparel zippers to ensure it will not “walk open”
  • Low profile top and side grab handles for easy portability
  • Airmesh back panel is fully vented and well padded in all the right places
  • Contoured backpack straps generously padded with Airmesh - UPDATE: Adjustable/removable shock-loaded sternum strap has been added based on customer input
  • Luggage handle pass-through panel on the back allow you to stack the TLS Slim on your favorite suitcase both vertically or horizontally. UPDATE: The vertical orientation change was based on customer input
  • UPDATE: Backpack straps now unclip for storage inside the pass-through panel for a cleaner dangle-free appearance when carried as a briefcase - again, this feature change was in response to customer input. The clips have also been upgraded since the feature was added. The clips shown in the still photos are correct - the 360 spin images are not
  • Lockable D-rings on primary zippers discourage tampering and keep luggage locks in a consistent location
  • Premium self-repairing YKK RC zippers use lockable double sliders on almost all openings
  • Discrete photo-reflective zipper cords for nighttime safety
  • High-visibility 210D orange nylon lining makes finding your stuff a lot easier
  • 840 x 900D Twisted Filament Polyester exterior with DuPont Teflon fabric protection

Detailed Product Description

Corporate Casual meets Professional. We've taken a different point of view when it comes to a laptop backpack. Gone are the bungee cords, exterior mesh pockets, carabineer clips, and all of the other outdoor/sports bling that has no place in a professional setting. The Professional Slim Laptop Backpack features an all-black dress code that doesn't look out of place in an office setting despite being a backpack. The Heathered Graphite makes a subtle statement. Isolated rapid-access compartments protect your laptop, iPad or tablet, sequester your printed materials, force you to be neat & organized by eliminating clutter zones, in a package that defies its published cubic inch capacity. It's like turbo charging a compact car. Buckle up – it's going to be a great ride!

Designer Notes

Almost two years of relentless tweaking went in to getting this backpack ready for prime time. There are lots of unique features that we know you’ll love – like the AC Adapter Garage that preserves storage space regardless of what’s packed above (thanks to our super-cool compression molded box and fold-down mezzanine in the book compartment) plus effortless access to your laptop & documents via wide L-zip openings. We’re really proud of this founding member of the Professional collection and hope you agree. Enjoy!
Bernard Majeau, Director, Product Development

"I was delighted a few weeks back to see that eBags finally offered a slim backpack that avoided the slouching problem so common with large backpacks. I have the TLS Workstation backpack and love it for long trips overseas, but for daily walks to work, the TLS Professional Slim is much better. The organizing compartment has all the hallmarks of a TLS backpack with exquisite organizing pockets. I like the increased use of zippered mesh pockets rather than open pockets. Things are more secure. One of the main reasons I bought the TLS Workstation was the "overhead" removable compartment for all my Mac accessories and power brick. That they moved that to the bottom AND made it zipper accessible makes this bag even better. The laptop compartment is large and can easily hold a 15in laptop. I have a ultraportable and I can fit it easily with some papers and a small umbrella. The storage compartment is large enough to hold papers, lunch, etc, but not overly large. But the most significant and welcome improvement is the addition of a dedicated iPad/tablet pocket. I use my iPad more than any other device and love having it so accessible yet isolated in its own space, where it is protected. One improvement that could be added is a sternum strap. I added one from Timbuk2 for three bucks. Even though the bag isn't designed to hold heavy things, a sternum strap is great to have to keep the straps from riding up under one's underarms while walking. Overall it is an excellent bag. I still use my Workstation on long-haul travel, but this is excellent for daily use. Designer Note: Sternum straps are now included thanks to this customer's comment. If you own the backpack from the initial production run, contact Customer Care and they will send you sternum straps at no charge."

"Got this to replace my Targus backpack that after a few years, has started to fray a bit too much and who's zippers tend to open on their own (not a good thing). This is a good bag and has wonderful organization and it doesn't look like a typical hiker's backpack, but has too many drawbacks to be a great bag. I knew it wasn't a large bag but it is effectively smaller than it should be as once you put a few things in one each section squeezes out the next. It doesn't take much to fill it up. Another inch or two would be great, an expandable zipper would be perfect. The shoulder straps are straight but need to be curved toward the center as I find it likes to inch toward my shoulders and am constantly adjusting for it. As mentioned in one of the earlier reviews, the tablet pocket zipper needs to be an inch or so wider as it is very difficult to get an iPad in and out if it's in a case (also because the other sections are squeezing the tablet pocket). When full, the zippers don't slide smoothly around the corners and the water bottle holder needs to be a little deeper to be more secure. I do love the little "garage" for wires, I do like the side handle, and as I said, the organization is great. If you don't plan on carrying a lot, this will probably work but if you think you're going to fill it, you may want to look for a larger alternative."

"My grandfather bought this business type bag for me since he's an ebag fanatic and he swore my laptop would fit! I doubted him, but we were both in shock when my large gaming Alienware 17" laptop weighing 10 pounds and the cooling pad fit perfectly in the same section. I did remove the step cushion - which is why it's removable! The lower zippered section held my large AC adapter and wired mouse. I still have plenty of room for my sketch pads, pencils, pens, etc. Of course, it has a water bottle holder and additional pockets. It's a great organizational bag with several carry methods - it has two pull out backpack straps or you can use one of the three supplied handles. Most times I use it like a backpack - the padded straps are comfortable and it has a sternum strap as well. Also the slimmer profile keeps the weight closer to my back, making it seem less heavy than other bags. The quality, comfort and appearance of this bag is excellent. Thanks grandpa, you've right once again!"

"Great laptop pack. The medium size and non-sporty look of this bag (no protruding pockets, bright cords or carabiners) highlights its business intent. Having a dedicated laptop and tablet compartment is great for protecting my expensive gear. I especially like the equipment garage! Why has it taken so long for someone to figure "garage" style out. It's excellent! It allows me to store all of my bulky cords, plugs, back-up battery charger and "mifi-wifi" without cluttering up the main storage compartments. An upgrade that would be beneficial would be to make the TLS Professional Slim Laptop Backpack a convertible bag; add a shoulder strap and provide the ability to hide the pack straps. A "hybrid" bag would allow ease of carrying in both less or more formal business setting. eBags, keep innovating!"

"Buyer Beware: I've had this bag for just over 4 months, and use it under light conditions - carrying my Macbook Air and assorted papers/notebook and doodads (charger, plugs, etc) - to and from work. I'm a commuter, so that really means its on my shoulder from my car to my desk - 500 meters twice a day. I love the bag itself - the slim profile, the side-entry design, the spaciousness - are all perfect for my needs. Frankly, I was in LOVE with this bag for the first 3 months I had it. But in the last 30 days or so, its started to come apart. Specifically, where the left shoulder strap meets the top of the bag, its coming loose and fraying. Now... I get this is the primary pressure point on a backpack, as its where the load-bearing shoulder strap meets the bag itself - but in a quality, well designed and manufactured bag, that should NEVER come unstitched or apart. And especially not after barely 4 months of light use..."

"Very frequent traveler 50-80 business travel on avg. so use of my bags are normally very intense. I was sold on this bag by the video. It did, however, appear larger in the video than it really is in hand, so the camera must add 10 lbs. The video was very accurate and what you see is what you get. I have always used Incase brand bags, and a very big fan of their design, but they quit making some of my favorite styles, and the last bag I purchased from Incase was not able to hold up to my travel demands and the organization that I need. I eyed the Tumi Network bag, but just could not bring myself to drop the $$$ on a bag I may replace every year or two. So, I shopped around and found this one. PROS: **doesn't slouch - stiff bag, very thick outer shell, very tough exterior **zippers are great - you can tell the quality **light - bag much lighter than expected **cord garage - best invention ever, perfect catch **all..would like to see it slightly larger **easy - SUPER easy access to laptop section (I use a Lenovo T510 - pretty large pc) **pretty decent overall storage **very well made bag - you can tell the high quality **handles - retract, very cool, comfy and tough CONS: **tablet storage compartment just a bit too small - does not zip open wide enough. I have my iPad in a case, so it's a bit tough to get in / out...an extra 1" on the zipper would have been enough **storage on front is too flat. There needs to be deeper storage pockets for plugs / cords **to elaborate on above - the storage garage could be larger to fit more cables and misc **water bottle side zipper - just too small, tried to use once...needs to be several inches "higher" or deeper pocket **a couple more small zipper pockets, maybe on back under padding...always nice to have a small additional easy accessible storage to throw expense receipts and misc while traveling **shoulder straps could be better design, thicker Overall, nice, well made bag would recommend 9 out of 10"

"I'm a bag geek. I admit it. And I really like this bag. I¿m a Director at a large software company in a global role, so I travel often - mostly domestic, some international, and always in a blazer, sport coat, or suit. Every 1-2 years I get the itch for a new bag, and have tried everything from multiple Tumis (briefs and backpacks), Booq, Briggs & Riley, Eagle Creek, REI, and a few others I cannot remember...many of which cost 2-3x as much as this one¿and I may be done. This bag is the perfect blend of style and function. It's very well laid out, with many smart features, and the materials seem very durable (I've only had mine a few months so I cannot speak based on fact). I have no issues walking into an executive meeting with it - as I have before with other bags that look like I just came from class - or camping. It slips over my rollaboard very well, stows under the airplane seat just fine, and has plenty of room for a PC, iPad, tablet keyboard, all my cables I would ever need, and more. It¿s far from the largest bag I¿ve ever had ¿ if you carry lots you may do better with the TLS Workstation (I own that one, too. ;) Some features I especially like: the side handle allowing me to carry it like a brief, separate lined tablet pocket, many internal pockets, connector ¿garage¿ that¿s there when I need it, but can be removed if not, padded back and straps, etc. The only thing missing would be to make it TSA compliant so I don¿t have to remove my PC at the airport, but TSA pre-check is quickly making that a non-issue. At this price you won¿t find a nicer looking, better thought out backpack. I¿d absolutely buy it again."

"Love the idea of this bag. It's great in all areas except one. The clips that hold the shoulder straps to the bottom of the bag are cheap plastic and keep coming off. This morning I got out of my car, slung my backpack over my shoulder and the clip came off. Bag fell to concrete floor and damaged my laptop. Thank you eBags for creating an almost perfect bag with a huge fatal flaw. Now I will most likely have to replace my computer or at the very least a hard drive. Potential buyers beware. eBags, please fix this flaw and make this bag as great as it should be."

"The plastic clasp broke on day 3. I was taking this bag to Italy with me on Friday - now I am desperately looking for another bag. It really is a beautiful bag and the organization is great. Too bad that cheap clasps are used. Very upsetting."

"This bag was exactly what i was looking for in my business travel. However, the bag clips continually break at the most inconvenient times. Luckily my laptop has not been hurt when the clips have broke. I would not recommend this bag even though it's almost perfect until the clips are fixed."
