Boa squeeze is a more compact-style backpack with a densely padded laptop compartment, two exterior neoprene stretch pockets, two zipper pockets on each side of the bag, and one larger center zipper pocket. When opening the bag up users get an additional four lining slip pockets, along with a stretch mesh and two Velcro pockets. It includes Airmesh back padding for improved comfort and airflow and is designed to help protect laptops from bumps and scratches that can occur during transport.
