Solid Gray Hard-Shell Backpack Can Play Rough

Monday, December 17th, 2012

If Mad Max and Blade Runner got together and designed a backpack, it might look a little something like this hard-shelled number from Dutch design firm Solid Gray. Weighing about 2.5 pounds, it's made from high-tech polypropene block copolymer with aluminum rivets (read: it can take a lickin'). The designers even quality-tested the backpack with a 2,000-hour UV high-speed weather test to make sure it holds up to sunlight, humidity, and rain. No word on how it fares beyond Thunderdome. Not surprisingly given the company's name, the backpack comes only in white and gray, and sells for €139-159 on the Solid Gray website.
