In the distant future, all backpacks will be armadillo-esque hardshell creations designed for maximum durability without much thought given to design. If you believe that something like Tron or Star Trek will actually come to pass, that’s probably true. The future is now and it only slightly resembles the backpack picture that Sci-Fi films have painted for decades. Solid Gray just released a new line of folding hardshell backpacks created from some copolymer that probably shouldn’t scientifically exist with a price point that doesn’t require an address in a So Cal zip code to afford. It’s got two compartments for your laptop or tablet (foam lined to prevent scratches) and your small items (easily accessible) and everything gets secured with their smart snap locking system. There’s even a clip on the “top” of the backpack for papers. You know, in case you actually need papers in the future.
