Airbag Backpack

It won't help you in a crash, but you should still strap on one of these Airbag Backpacks ($300). Made of exploded airbags along with truck tarps and old seat belts, the waterproof bag features compression straps to shrink or expand the main compartment, and has a buckle to keep rippling down to a minimum. It's also made from 99 percent recycled material, so you can feel a little better burning up those dinosaur bones. [via]

  • Poler Duffaluffagus Bag

    Named after — we're guessing — Sesame Street's lovable, oversized fur monster, the Poler Duffaluffagus Bag ($80) is similarly large, making it risky as a carry-on but perfect for lugging around a lot of stuff. Tuck-away straps let you wear it like a backpack, separate straps on the bottom let you hook it to a skateboard and pull it behind you when you're feeling lazy, and high-quality construction using synthetic fabric, leather, and metal ensures it's up for any journey you need to take.

  • Solid Gray Backpack

    It's not every day you come across a real innovation in backpacks, but then again, it's not every day you come across a Solid Gray Backpack ($165). These unique bags feature a folding hardshell design, EPDM foam lining and straps for keeping your tablet or laptop safe and secure, two interior compartments for keeping small items handy, a built-in document clip — so your papers don't end up smashed at the bottom of the bag — and a flexible fit, which means your back will like it just as much as your eyes do.
