ROG Nomad Backpack

Secure Space

An internal suspension and padding system is designed to keep up to 17-inch notebooks safe during travel. The ROG team has thought beyond the notebook and included tailored compartments for all other gaming hardware. Other features include a dedicated hanging hook for headsets like the ROG Orion or Vulcan, and multiple individual pockets for keyboard, mouse, camera, adapters and cables. The media pocket is easily within reach so you’ll never fumble to change a song track on the move, while its detachable carabiner will keep your keys safe and secure until you get home. This ergonomic internal design ensures everything is organized and readily accessible, while also providing a better weight distribution.

Quality and Durability

Its lightweight, durable and water-resistant 1680D ballistic nylon construction helps keep precious cargo safe and dry. With an 8 liter capacity, multiple pockets and tested to carry up to 30kg, it can really pack all your hardware!

To ensure quality, the ROG team put each strap and carry handle through 1,000- and 2,000-cycle pull tests respectively, while the zippers must achieve over 3,000 uses to ensure durability.

ROG DNA Inside & Out

Design elements of the Nomad mirror a gladiator’s helmet signifying strength and honor, while ROG’s distinctive red and black colors reflect its gaming roots. The Nomad name reflects the spirit of a traveler and ronin-like warrior, while the angular design takes its inspiration from the G-series gaming notebooks it will typically contain.
