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 Jet Pack 2.0 is the backpack designed for your grown-up tech, and it boasts a unique fractal design that is equal parts professional and fun. 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.

We can think of a long list of crazy things to do with a Volkswagen Beetle. Crash it into a wall. Hippie chicks. Herbie: Fully Loaded. Assorted things with Lindsey Lohan during Herbie: Fully Loaded. Crushing it with a giant robot. You get the idea. Never, and we mean like "in...

They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. That is an old wives tale. The way to a man's heart is through his crotch. Yeah, yeah, we know: sex, sex, and more sex. It's all we think about it. Except in this instance we're actually referring to the rumble, the vi...
