I’ve seen a few hard shell backpacks in my time, but this is one of the first that is supposed to be quite lightweight as well, since its cut and folded out of a single sheet of copolymer. It’s called Solid Gray and it definitely looks like an interesting pack to have.
The hard shell actually folds back to open up. It has straps to secure your laptop and tablet. There are two compartments to store smaller items, like smartphones. The backpack is made in the Netherlands. The straps look a bit too minimal for my taste, but the rest of the design is definitely unique. It weighs 2.5 pounds and its capacity is 15L. It can fit laptops up to 15.6″.
The backpacks are being sold through Solid Gray’s official eBay site, where you can get yours for appx. $162 USD. They’re available in either white or gray, but the gray color is currently out of stock.
