Ralph Lauren RLX Solar Panel Backpack

Ralph Lauren RLX Solar Panel Backpack

If you asked us to name a company pushing a backpack capable of charging our iPhones, iPods, and other goodies using only the power of the sun, Ralph Lauren would have been near the end of the list. Yet, here we are, taking about the Ralph Lauren RLX Solar Panel Backpack ($800). While it's not cheap — nor is that a surprise — it does offer a large solar panel that can charge a phone in two to three hours, plenty of pockets, water-resistant construction, and comfy shoulder straps that keep you from being constantly reminded about that solar panel on your back.

  • Burton F-Stop Pack

    Sure, Burton's best known for their snowboarding gear, but that doesn't mean they can't use their wisdom for other things... like photography. The Burton F-Stop Pack ($225) was developed with help from the company's team of pro photographers, so it includes essential features like padded compartments for bodies, lenses, and the like, a removable storage pocket for smaller items, a load-balance waist harness to keep all that stuff from breaking your back on a long haul, a side-access cooler pocket, and external straps for attaching and carrying a tripod, or, if you're more adventurous, a board.

  • Incase Alloy Collection

    In case you haven't heard, shiny materials are making a comeback. The Incase Alloy Collection ($60-$180) embraces this trend, with exteriors made of 400 denier nylon with a textured finish and matte metallic coating, and also sports features like breathable mesh shoulder straps, rugged YKK zippers with suede pulls, reflective highlights, reinforced loading handles, and faux fur lined compartments to keep your laptop, tablet, or other gadgets safe from scratches.
