Swissdigital Mainframe Travel Business Backpack REVIEW


The Mainframe Travel Business backpack is designed to be simple, but hearty enough to take on any challenge from a business meeting to hiking adventure. Inside the main compartment, you will find a padded laptop sleeve and EVA molded pockets for smaller devices like mobile phones and tablets. Like the Circuit backpack, the Mainframe also has RFID protection built-in. The backpack can fit laptops up to 15 inches in size and comes equipped with “S” curve padded, adjustable shoulder straps. It’s made from 600D nylon and measures 18.5 x 13 x 17 inches, which fits carry-on requirements for airlines. Speaking of travel, the Mainframe backpack has the add-a-bag system incorporated into its design so that you can easily put it on a luggage trolley and it has a TSA approved laptop sleeve for hassle-free security checks.


I typically try not to make a direct comparison between products too often especially when they are from the same company but I couldn’t help but make one big observation about the Mainframe. It’s very lightweight. It’s not that the Circuit was heavy by any means, but the materials that were used to make it were not as light as the nylon that the Mainframe is made from. Carrying the bag is fantastic. I always felt like my load was evenly positioned and weight was dispersed well. I have back problems and I’m always worried that I’ll pack too much around, but the Mainframe made it easy to carry what I need to without adding extra strain to my back.


I have really taken a shine to the backpacks from Swiss Digital. For one thing, they are affordable as high-quality bags. This pack is currently selling for around $50 and I think that’s in line with other bags of similar quality. I would actually recommend this bag to any daily business people as well as educational purposes. With the larger middle compartment, I could easily see that being used for books and notepads. The Mainframe backpack is a great all-purpose backpack and flexible enough to use for any situation.
