NOTE: Our EVADE backpacks are built with some heft and as a result the Lite (version) packs weigh 3.7 lbs or more depending on your fabric choice. So BEFORE you place an order, please be aware of this.
The Evade 1.5 is being offered in 2 versions, FULL and LITE. The Lite model does not come with the laptop compartment.
The one and ONLY difference between the EV1.5 and EV1.5 Lite is the laptop compartment that is absent in the latter. Now that said, for those of you with a slim laptop like the new MBPs or Ultrabooks, you can slipped it into the rear CCW compartment (at an angle) - side zippered entry.
