Introducing The DJTT S2 Backpack

We’re excited to introduce a brand new backpack to our unique collection of bags designed specifically for DJs and controllers. The DJTT S2 Backpack features a unique design that includes a removable case for your S2 or similar-sized controller, heavy duty backpack straps, a generous amount of extra room for your sound cards, cables, controllers and even full sized mixers! Click through to watch the bag in action.

The Design and Story

Ean designed this bag in collaboration with Bumi to be a fresh take the classic DJ record bag for a new generation of digital DJ gear.  Many DJs loved our S4 shoulder bag but asked for a backpack version with more storage, so when it came time to produce something for the very popular S2 – we decided to double the straps and make it extra roomy!

Here are just a few of the features we like about the bag:

  • Independent Kontrol S2 case with plenty of padding to ensure the safety of your controller. The case is removable, and velcros securely into the main pocket. We’ll produce additional inserts in the future to accomodate controllers of various sizes.
  • The main pocket has extensive room in the interior and can hold multiple controllers in addition to the Kontrol S2. It will even accomodate a full-size mixer along with your laptop and controller (Ean has toted around our office’s DJM-900 a few times in it!).
  • A dedicated laptop sleeve compartment that is accessible from the outside of the bag so you dont have to open up the main compartment to access your laptop quickly.
  • The front pocket is equipped with lots of compartments and space for cables, sound cards, headphones and more.
  • Additional exterior padding on the strap-side protects the laptop and makes carrying a heavy setup super-comfortable.
  • Sneaky hidden zip-pockets in top flap and next to the smaller front pocket for hiding away valuables.

The Dollars and Cents

We’ve been testing this bag for the last six months, and I’m excited to announce that they’re available for purchase today, with the first bags shipping out right away. Thanks to the fact that we produced these ourselves and sell directly to our readers, we have been able to keep the price at a very affordable level for a high quality specialty bag: $139

Interested? Grab one here today.

While you’re at it, you might need more gear to fill up that bag… here are some excellent options from our online store:

Traktor S2VCI-400SE, and the Midi Fighters: 3D, Pro and Classic!

    Can you squeeze a 17″ MBP in there?

  • Kraal

    can it hold control records and a djm-ti mixer and a couple xlr’s?

  • Sleaztek

    how about a back pack for the S4?

  • Yuradee25

    will DDJ-Ergo fit?

    • Noelflava

      yup!

  • Bedo

    Would it comfortably fit a A&H Xone:DX without getting too bulky for some space for Mac’13, cables, etc? 

    • Noelflava

      For sure it will fit!

  • Robtronik

    Great bag. Will it hold the Numark NS6?

  • Djcl.ear

    It look almost perfect!
    It’s better than every other alternative out there

    And that’s hard to find (I’ve been long searching for such backpack)

  • Philipp

    Will a lenovo thinkpad 15,6″ fit in the laptop sleeve compartment?

    • Noelflava

      should do. how thick is your laptop? 

  • Marco F

    Anyone know of a good S4 backpack that is slimmer than the UDG S4 Backpack?

  • NotSoSiniSter

    You would have been much better off making the bag fit a whole plethora of Midi controllers, which it probably can, but it should have been marketed that way. Not so sure about that price tag though. You did put a lot of pockets on that thing, but shooting for under the $100 range would have probably been ideal. 

    • Noelflava

      Yes, it will fit both! 🙂

  • Cesar Martinez

    Really interested in the backpack, but I own a S4. Is it better to wait for the S4 sleeve case or would you guys replace or accommodate if purchased now.? 

    • Noelflava

      Buy the bag and get an S4 decksaver (good to have one anyways for when not using the S4), and use the sleeve for secondary controller ie maschine. Thats was I do. It works great. Or you can wait for the sleeve…

  • Martin.Beijer

    I guess the vci 400 will fit fine too then:) 
    combo order in mid feb! 

  • Faye Smelter

    Anyone know the artist and song name on the video?

  • Anonymous

    Wow, that’s a great price. I’m genuinely surprised.

  • DJ elixeR

    how well would this fit a mixtrack pro?

    • Noelflava

      it will fit a mixtrack pro fine.

  • DjCrapTools

    Wait, so it costs basically the same price as the Mono bags but looks like shit and you dont have any claims about it being waterproof or made of industrial grade materials? Why do you guys have such mediocre relations with so many companies? You just finished making a bag with Mono (who makes excellent bags btw), and you’ve now gone back to trying to make your own shitty bags? For christ sakes, get your shit back in a line, and do what everyone came here originally for, good digital dj info, not your half assed attempts at dj products and promo videos, cause frankly, both suck.

  • SINFM

    No love for 17″ MacBooks?  I need a bag for 17″ & Twitch.

  • armyofme4340

    Great bag. Well thought out design

  • Slak Jaw

    Great job DJTT! This bag looks awesome. Wish you had a version for the S4. Also I liked the video. Keep up the great work! You guys must be busy – seems like you have a ton of new projects on the go. Just a friendly reminder, please don’t forget what you started. I would still like to see an instructional video for my MF Pro and am anxiously waiting for the bug fix update for the S4 Mapping.

  • Dreamr OKelly

    Uggg.. Enough of the products and reviews……. Let’s have some meat please, all the veggies are making me feel like an herbivore 😀

    Let’s get some new Ableton, Reason, and Traktor tips and tutorials going, and especially, general DJing tips. That is what brought me here 2 years ago!

    • Spacecamp

      Hey dude, 
      Dan here, managing editor of the DJTT blog. 

      We do have a commitment to tips and tutorials and see them basis of the blog and our strongest area. That being said, this week is the biggest product announcement week of the year for the DJ industry, as NAMM is happening in Anaheim, CA. We’re dedicating a full editorial team to covering all the awesome stuff that gets announced there, and I think you’ll really enjoy some of the stuff that comes out of it. 

      If you have any awesome ideas for articles, please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email. dan at dj techtools dot com. 

      • Dreamr OKelly

        i’ll do you one better, i’ll write for you 🙂
        please shoot me an email at me (@) dreamr (dot) xxx

        I can do a full intro to production with ableton live (at least a 15 part series)

        The number one thing I am asked about when I gig from other djs is how I remix and add elements to tracks.

      • Dreamr OKelly

        I’ll add that I have been a technical writer for wrox press (programming).

        • lexor

          If you’re interested you should probably write him…not tell him to email you.

        • Dennis Parrott

          @djdreamr:disqus 
          I agree with lexor. Please drop a line to Dan and get this series going. I would love it. Please consider showing us all how to properly “warp” tracks in Ableton (my own personal request!).

          It is easy to sit and carp about things. It is harder to step up and do something about them. Clearly your experience having written for wrox (i have more than a couple of their books) puts you a cut above many who have skills but not in creating written communications.

          I watched time after time how somebody found their way into trouble with USB ports that are underpowered. That got me to write an article here. 

          Seriously though, if we all just wait for Ean to write things we might be waiting until we are old and gray. Ean & Co. have a BUSINESS to run so that they can have things like food and shelter. Underfed homeless people don’t write articles for blogs like this! We need to share what we know. If you know something but can’t quite see yourself doing the writing, team up. It is great to have Ean teach us but he can’t be the one to teach us everything. That model will break Ean. We can have so much more by just sharing what we all know among ourselves.

            still cant find his email 😀

            i used to have Ean’s (did some web work for him back in the day) but I don’t have it any more. I sent emails to the website contact box, nothing back.

            Thats why I left mine 😀

          • Anonymous

            Dan  (at)  Djtechtools.com  or get at me Web (at) Djtechtools.com and I’ll make sure he sees it.

    • Claksaarb

      The site has gotta make money somehow.  Can’t give all this advice away for free…

  • Evgeny Kuchkov

    seriously, what about s4? I love the look of this backpack! make an s4 version

    • Dreamr OKelly

      +1

      I know the s4 is older then the s2, but the s2 is a gimp, so wheres the cool backpacks for us? They might be able to double as wings 😉

    • Noelflava

      You can use this to put your S4 in it. Just the built in case is to small. If you have a deckjsaver this bag is perfect, and you can use the case for a maschine or other smaller controller. 

  • Ricardo T.

    Inserts! Have been looking for an independent protective insert for my traktor S4 from day one! Hope you guys produce it sooner rather than later…the mighty DJTT staff has done it again!

  • Fatdigits

    Nice bag but it’s trying to cater for too many customers. Make a slim back pack specifically for the S2 + 15″ laptop with just enough space for a MF and personal things. All designed in a shape that fits the body e.g. the Incase compact backpack.

    Anyone know what headphones he’s wearing?

    • Pulsating Brown Starfish

      “Make a slim back pack specifically for the S2 + 15″ laptop with just enough space for a MF and personal things”

      …pretty much what it is dude

      • Fatdigits

        @Pulsating Brown Starfish: If you read the short article you’ll come across,

        “It will even
        accomodate a full-size mixer along with your laptop and controller (Ean
        has toted around our office’s DJM-900 a few times in it!).”

        • PBS

          you’re right, my bad

  • Count Rackula

    how to be cool:

    1) wear DJ headphones in public
    2) buy one record…CASH
    3) stop in the middle of the crosswalk and strike a pose
    4) stare out the window

    • Chris Wunder

      Dont forget about the sunglasses.. lenses optional

    • Brian

      Don’t hate.

    • Claksaarb

      Hope you learned something

    • kegan

      i lol’d.

  • yes we can't

    based on the video, it should be called the DJTT “Douchebag”

    • Poop

      yeah right. what a fucking weird video. showed no actual information pertaining to the bag. just stylistic crap. 

      • RockingClub

        Man! this is what is called an advertisement. Just giving you an impression how to use it in the DJs everyday life…

      • Thehaterhater

        It’s a bag. It hold things. You see in the bag what it holds. Then he walks around with it on. 

        Seems to me like most of what you do with a bag is walkaround with it on your back, so the video seems to be accurate there. 

        Plus I think its a pretty dope video, they clearly put some time into. Quit hating. 

    • Brian

      That’s a bit harsh.

    • Claksaarb

      This is actually hilarious

  • dominant

    would an S4 squeeze in there?

    • gravy boat captain

      if by squeeze you mean, smash it to bits with a sledge hammer and then pour it in….then yes, it will

    • Noelflava

      Yeah, the bag fits the S4 fine. Only the case wont fit the S4. But if you ise a deckdsaver this bag is perfect and the case can be used for another controller ie maschine….

  • Santoro_matt

    Will my xone 4d fit? If so I’m buying this

    • Noelflava

      Yes.

      • Santoro_matt

        But no 17 inch macbook pro?
         

  • Djhustleman

    Y’all can put it on sale for MLK day

    Crunkmus-MLK is back!!

  • lexor

    Will the S4 fit in it? If not; S4 version please:)

    • Noelflava

      S4 will fit in main compartment. As for the the sleeve it is made for S2 but there will be more sleeves to come. I use this bag with my S4 with a decksaver, and use the sleeve for my maschine which I throw on top, and it works great. 

  • giant fruit basket

    Is this bag traktor skratch certified?

  • DJsnorlax

    Looks sick. 

    Excited to grab one for carting my S2 around – will an APC 20 fit in the main comparment along with it?

    • Noelflava

      Yes.

  • Otter

    Is it carry-on allowable?  

    • Noelflava

      yes.

  • Youngster Joey96

    either that bag is quite heavy or that asian hipster has weak muscles.

    • BENIHANA

      having muscles is SO lame

    • Claksaarb

      Ha!  It’s both actually
