11 Bizarre Backpacks That Go Beyond the Basics

4. The Keep Yourself Tidy Backpack

The idea for this backpack started with a vision - to make packing, keeping and carrying all your belongings more simple. The manifestation of that vision was Tidypack - developed by and made for globetrotters.

The Tidypack Backpack has shelves which can be extended by hanging it over a door. Just pack your clothes into the various compartments, close the rucksack and you are ready to go. When you reach your next destination, just extend the shelves and hang it over a door.

TidyPack looks very much like any other backpacks; it's just that the interior consist of an useful and expandable wardrobe system. Designed and developed by Marit Lien, this sure is a neat idea. (Pun intended.) Source.


3. The Total Stereo Backpack

The problem with most portable music systems is that you can't easily share your music with others or blast it wherever you go. Thankfully, someone has created the solution.

According to design student Joonas Saaranen "Reppo II is a hardshell backpack with an integrated high quality digital amplifier and pair of speakers. This beauty comes in a ultra-cool shiny hardshell backpack that gets heads turning. Just plug in any audio source, strap the whole thing on your back and share your favorite tunes with your friends on the go." Via Technabob.

2. The BulletProof Backpack: Backpackshield


Wouldn't it be great if your backpack could save your life, not just help you carry your stuff?

The backpackshield is a bulletproof backpack insert that can stop 9 mm and 44 magnum rounds of gunfire. Backpackshield is not a backpack technically but an insert that can be switched to another backpack if you outgrow your pack or decide to switch styles. Made from 13 layers of K-29 Kevlar, this thin, lightweight plate fits in most backpacks. According to the inventor, this was designed for "college students, high school students, concerned parents, and commuters." I guess schools have really gotten dangerous, huh? Available in 10 assorted colors, it costs $279USD. If you don't want to change shools to keep your kid safe, I guess the backpackshield can offer some much needed safety. Source

If you insist on an actual bulletproof backpack, well, you could get the one here .

1. Got a Big Butt Backpack

Love big butts and want to carry some around everywhere you go? Then you surely will want to lug around these “female form” inspired backpacks dubbed “The Peach” by Yen-Hsiang Skeet Wang. The artist liked the juxtaposition of the erotic female form with something totally unrelated so I guess he thought...hmmmm, I wonder how good a butt would look as a backpack. If I wore this backpack, I know no one would be looking at my real butt and thinking it is big, so I am all for getting one.

strange and some good. There might be out there also a thing like a backpack but just the "floor" and for the arms and another for to hold the handles of plasticbags across the back with two straps down from the one across the back to hold the handles of the plasticbags. Trying to find such but probably uber expensive. Already asked a backpack maker to see if there is such a thing but haven't had any response. Probably also only good sometimes for those who have to push a wheelchair and cant hold the bags at the same time and cant have the wheelchairbags for one reason or another. So probably very small market for those.
