Keep your MacBook safe and dry with an Under Armour backpack for under $50

Whether you’re a student, an office worker, or just someone with more stuff than two hands can carry, a backpack is a great thing to own. Having a convenient place to store your MacBook, papers, and snacks can make your life much easier. Not all backpacks are fully equipped for what nature can throw at them, however. Without proper waterproofing, the contents of even the most luxurious of backpacks could end up getting soaked by a decent bit of rain. Which is why getting yourself a rainproof backpack can be so beneficial — especially if you plan on toting electrical devices around.

Fortunately, Under Armour is having a huge sale this weekend to help you on your quest for a better backpack. The UA Outlet Exclusive sale is going on now through Monday, February 18th alongside many Presidents’ Day sales. With up to 40 percent off outlet items, this sale is nothing to sneeze at. You can even get an extra 20 percent off when you spend $100 or more with the promo code RALLY20. So if you need a new backpack, now is a great time to get a good one for cheap.

UA Hustle 3.0 Backpack — $42

If you’re looking for something simple, straightforward, and water-repellent, the Hustle 3.0 is a great choice. Built with UA Storm technology, it delivers a highly water-resistant finish that can handle everything from light sprinkles to downpours. The straps are made with adjustable HeatGear, allowing for extra comfort on your shoulders. With two Side water bottle pockets and a large, gusseted front shoe pocket, it also works great as a fitness companion. The soft-lined laptop sleeve on the inside is large enough to hold a 15-inch MacBook Pro or the smaller 12-inch MacBook.

Normally priced at $55, a 24-percent discount drops the price down to just $42 directly from the Under Armour outlet.

The Recruit is fitted with that UA Storm technology, so it comes with the highly water-resistant finish. The tough, abrasion-resistant bottom panel keeps any rips or tears from happening when you set it down, but with the adjustable, padded shoulder straps, you won’t want to set it down. It also comes with water-repellent front pockets, so you can store your iPhone, iPad, or other valuables without fear of them getting wet. The soft-lined laptop sleeve also allows you to store a 15-inch MacBook Pro with ease.

Normally priced at $65, a sweet 25-percent discount drops the price down to just $49 for the duration of this outlet sale. Once you have this, all you’ll need is a waterproof jacket and you’ll be ready to brave the elements.

UA Big Logo 5.0 Backpack — $53

Though the other two options are pretty decent backpacks, if you’re looking for something a little bit bigger and more comfortable, the Big Logo 5.0 is a solid alternate choice. Built with the same UA Storm technology, it can handle just about anything nature can throw at you. All-in-all, it comes with many of the same features as the first weatherproof backpack on our list, but with the added benefit of an ergonomic padded back panel. With an extra-soft, tricot sleeve lining the inside, you can hold up to a 15-inch laptop or MacBook.

Normally priced at $70, a solid 25-percent discount brings the price down to $53. This is a great backpack for college students who find themselves walking to class more often than not.

Several of Apple's latest MacBooks are on our list of the best laptops around, and the MacBook Pro 14 is arguably the best 14-inch laptop you can buy today. Any new machine that wants to compete has to offer an incredibly compelling combination of features and value.

Lenovo's Slim Pro 9i 14 is a laptop that's obviously aimed directly at the MacBook. It has some powerful components inside and it performs just as well. It's also less expensive. Unfortunately, even those things fail to give it a leg up.

While the laptop industry continues to move toward 14-inch laptops and larger, the 13-inch laptop remains an important category. One of the best is the Apple MacBook Air M2, with an extremely thin and well-built chassis, great performance, and incredibly long battery life.

Lenovo has recently introduced the third generation of its ThinkPad X1 Nano, one of the lightest laptops we've tested and a good performer as well. It's stiff competition, but which of these two diminutive laptops stands apart?

The 16-inch creator's laptop is increasingly popular, and a number of excellent options have emerged. The Apple MacBook Pro 16 is the premier example, offering a combination of performance, battery life, and quality that's hard to match.

Lenovo recently upsized its attractive Slim 9i laptop, creating the Slim Pro 9i that packs in a very powerful CPU and a choice of lower-end GPUs. Don't let the latter fool you, though, as Lenovo has squeezed out a lot of performance. Can the Slim Pro 9i take on the mightly MacBook Air 16?
