gone to a party where there was no place to sit except the floor? Next
time, why don't you bring your own chair or maybe even plan on wearing
your own chair. You read that right, wearing your chair is possible
with this backpack.
It's called Wear Your Seat and is
molded to fit your back. So now, wherever you go, you can carry your
chair with you on your back. The idea is great, but the bulkiness of
the contraption scares me. I think it will make my butt look bigger,
don't you? More here.
