Jet Pack 2.0

Jet Pack 2.0

Most backpacks suggest you’re toting thick textbooks everywhere you go. That’s fine if you are scurrying between classes, but if you’ve left school in the rearview mirror, consider a bag a little different.

The proprietary tessellated panel offers lightweight protection, while the coated fabric and zippers keep everything dry. Inside you’ll even find a 15” faux fur lined laptop sleeve to keep your computer all spiffy. Each is packed with an Airmesh ventilated shoulder harness and back panel, a storm flap zippered front pocket, and a look that will stand out.

The original Huayra was already a ridiculously insane sportscar. With a six-figure price tag, "The Hypercar of the Year 2012" award under its belt, and previous speed records, it would have been understandable if Pagani decided to sit back and rest on their laurels. But, oh ma...
