Giveaway: Solid Gray Hardshell Backpack

By: on February 17, 2014

Become a futuristic Ninja Turtle and protect your precious gear! Enter to win a foam-lined hardshell backpack from Solid Gray (a $190 value)!

This giveaway is open to all residents, US & international.

About Solid Gray Hardshell Backpacks

Solid Gray's hardshell backpacks take a TMNT aesthetic and jack up it up with stylized, crustacean-inspired angles, roomy interiors, and stark hues. Folding outer shells are strong enough to protect pack contents from knocks and bumps, but weigh just 2-1/2 pounds, so wearing one won't make your arms go numb. Inner laptop/tablet storage compartments contain EPDM foam lining and securing straps for additional protection of your favorite gear child. I call mine Baby DeAndre. The backpacks also have two additional interior storage compartments built in to keep smaller items readily accessible. Muted color combinations provide the final touch, and give the bags some stealth status, with White-Black, Dark Gray, and White-White choices available. The overall effect of a Solid Gray hardshell: more ninja, less turtle.

In terms of Solid Gray technical specs, shell construction utilizes ultra-thin layers of an advanced plastic called polypropene block copolymer. The material is extremely lightweight and can be folded millions of times without breaking or tearing. Additional backpack components include aluminum rivets, used to assemble the hardshell, the aforementioned interior EPDM foam padding, and polypropene straps. The larger interior compartment accommodates a laptop up to 15-1/2".

Hardshell backpacks' lifespan should be indefinite, but if owners no longer care to use their Solid Gray, the Netherlands-based company will recycle it in its entirety into high-purity technological materials.

Backpack dimensions are 19.7" x 12.6" x 7.9".
