Will My Laptop Fit in the Gemini or Aquila?

One of the most frequently asked questions we get is, "Will this bag fit my laptop?"

Most laptops up to 17.3" in diagonal length should fit in the Gemini and Aquila (how laptops are typically measured and sold). However, to be sure and to avoid the hassle of returns, make sure to take one more measurement first.

Due to the variety of sizes and dimensions of laptops available, here's an easy way to tell if your laptop will fit inside the built-in sleeve.

Laptop measurement

Measure your laptop lengthwise. It should be no longer than 15" in length. If it is, it will not fit inside the sleeve. Our laptop compartments are made to fit a computer up to 15" in length. If yours is larger, it may still be able to fit inside the main compartment of the bag.

laptop width

Make sure to also check the thickness of your laptop. If it is much wider than 1", it may be a tight fit, or be too thick for the laptop sleeve.

For the button to snap closed at the top of the padded laptop sleeve, we recommend that the laptop not stand taller than 9" inside the Gemini and Aquila.
