  • Questions & Answers

    Is the Metrolite Backpack-XF weather proof or water repellant?

    Brenthaven MacBook cases are not waterproof.  While we use materials that are water repellant, we do not recommend carrying your case in the rain if at all possible.  We do, however, have several cases that feature a hidden rain-fly that can be pulled out when you find yourself near water!  If a water-proof case is important, we highly recommend our ProStyle SlimPack backpacks or our Trek Switch MB flap.


The High Density Foam Protection System offers a lightweight cradle system that wraps your laptop in padded foam while suspending it above the bottom of the case. Patent pending.

Metrolite BP-XF


Easily the best backpack I've ever owned


I often have to cart two laptops - My MacBook Pro and a much heavier, bulkier work-issued Lenovo - back and forth to work and this backpack handles them perfectly and easily. It's sturdy enough that there's no wear and tear on the seams despite the weight involved and both laptops are well protected. There's plenty of room for my peripherals and it's comfortable to wear on long walks. Highly, highly recommended. Especially for the money.

Best Backpack, Full Featured


I have a 15" Macbook Pro Retina Display and a Macbook Air 13". I have a Tumi large computer backpack but wanted a lighter weight option with all the similar features of the Tumi bag for airport travel efficiency. I meticulously researched all Brenthaven backpacks. To the best of my understanding, this one is the ONLY one that has the ability of butterfly open for passage through the X-Ray machine without removal of the computer from the backpack AND has a trolley loop to slide over my carry-on suitcase's handle for secure transport through the airport and parking lots. Best of
all, it is extremely lightweight, while not compromising how well-padded the compartments are for my computer, iPad and accessories. Only features missing: waterproof attachment (like my Lowepro camera bag) and an external water bottle pocket, but I understand it was a design compromise that keeps this bag super light. What good is a bag if it's too heavy to carry around comfortably? I give it 5 Stars.



This is simply the ideal traveling backpack, one of the best products I have ever bought. I use it for travel and every day to go to and from work carrying my 11" inch Air, as well as lots of other related paraphernalia. Air fits nicely and is well protected, though the pocket will hold a larger laptop. Lots of places to store things in the front pockets, and there is a larger pocket for other items like a newspaper (remember those?), magazines, a book or two, etc. Plus there is a sleeve in the back that you can use to slide the backpack over the handle of your carry on if that's what you need to do. Sturdy construction, and, unlike some other bags and packs I have had, it doesn't fall over when you put it on the ground, so packing is facilitated. Once in a while you hit a home run; this backpack has been a home run for me.

Absolutely Fantastic


I have owned this backpack for over 4 years. I travel frequently and the comfort level is excellent, even when the backpack is crammed with stuff. The second thing I love about it is the ease of removing the laptop from the bag when it is under the seat in front of me on a plane. Position of the pockets, capacity, and durability have been great. If you don't like his product your medication needs to be adjusted!

Best Guarantee in the Industry!


So... I got my first MacBook Pro and considering the investment I wasn't willing to compromise on the MacBook case that I was going to be carrying this thing around in. I've had my Metrolite BP-XF for a little over a week and I have to say I am more than satisfied. One of the best attributes is its size. It is so much slimmer than my Targus that houses my old laptop... I used to feel like I was heading up Mt Everest with that pack. With the Metrolite MacBook Case I actually forget that I am wearing it most of the time. It's light and extremely comfortable, this is especially important if you are going to be commuting. I love the design the look and the quality of the material feels so much more expensive than the price would suggest. On that note this pack retails for around the same price as the Targus that I purchased ten years ago. If you couldn't tell already I highly recommend this MacBook Pro case to anyone who is looking for the utmost protection for their MacBook Pro and is concerned about comfort and ergonomics. Don't hesitate to provide your MacBook Pro with the best protection while on the go as well as the best guarantee in the industry!

This is the bag you want


The Metrolite BP-XF MacBook case actually fits the 15.4 inch Macbook Pro. (Little snug, but well worth it). For airport travel domestic and overseas, this is the MacBook case you want. Enough room for a MBP, and a Kindle, with room for all the other junk you need to have when you travel, this MacBook case also fits nicely under the seat or in the overhead with no fuss. The upright means you can get into it easily when it is between your legs in a cramped coach seat on a Regional Jet. (Which is what I liked). All in all, probably one of the best travel tools I have had in a LONG time.

Excellent Bag


I normally don't take time to write reviews about any of my purchases, but this MacBook case is so great that I wanted to post a 5 star review. Pockets for everything I carry. Durable, yet compact and lightweight. I've been through 4 airports since I bought it, and being able to unzip it for the x-ray machine has saved a lot of time and hassle. You won't regret buying this MacBook case.

Computer Protection is Rock Solid


The Brenthaven Metrolite BP-XF (Black/Gray) is by far the best designed backpack MacBook case on the market based on my research. The computer protection is rock solid and no additional MacBook sleeve is needed. The compartments are well thought out and zips function very smoothly. It is easy to carry on the back and the x-ray friendly features take the chore out of going through security. On the negative side, space is a bit limited if one likes to stuff a lot of reading materials. An expansion slot, for heavy load days, would have been a good additional feature. Overall very happy to own this MacBook case which combines features, laptop protection, looks and value for money very well.

Two Thumbs- Way Up


I give Brenthaven two thumbs up -- way up, for there outstanding MacBook cases. I purchased a Brenthaven backpack bag for my 17" Powerbook Pro laptop about 7 years ago. Since then I have literally taken it around the world into some very unforgiving environments--all the way constantly using it. Except for a smashed zipper handle (which happened in the Australian outback), the MacBook case is in virtually perfect condition. In a world where products seem to be made with less and less quality, it is exceptionally refreshing to experience something that truly lasts. Thanks Brenthaven for an absolutely outstanding MacBook case.

I am extremely Pleased With This Product


I am extremely pleased with this MacBook case. Brenthaven designed a bag that is comfortable, with great function, style and durability. I use this bag daily lugging my laptop and business material, walking the city all day I don't feel the weight of the cargo, it's properly balanced with good padding on the back and thick shoulder straps. The design is well thought out, nothing hangs from the bag that can snag, the zippers are large and easy to use. The amount and size of the pockets are accurate for day use and airline carry-on. Going through airport security is a breeze. I can easily take the MacBook case off in a crowd and unzip to lay flat in the storage bucket; I don't take my laptop out of bag. On the backside there is kangaroo pocket to store the shoulder straps, which again makes it easy to carry in large crowds without the worry of snagging. I receive compliments from colleagues and fashion conscious friends for same reasons. The bag does its job without attracting attention to itself. Even though I use it daily in all weather the case looks good and functions as the day I got it. I am reassured that Brenthaven offers a lifetime warranty and is dedicated to creating zero impact MacBook cases.



In a country where people only write when they have something negative to say, I just wanted to express my extreme satisfaction in my Metrolite BP-XF MacBook case. I think it is just great. I purchased it online because it was priced well. Just got it and given the price I was not expecting much. It is everything I needed. I was happy to realize that Brenthaven takes responsibility to the environment so serious as well. Thanks for helping a Dad look cool while he carries his office.
