Each year I visit Munich to attend ISPO. There are a ton of amazing skate products along with numerous great people. I always make it a point to get to the ISPO innovation area. This year, a backpack caught my eye. It’s from a Canadian expat who now lives in Denmark. His name is Adrian Solgaard and his company, Solgaard, is creating some pretty interesting products.This man is secretly Canadian. Adrian and I immediately hit it off and I was pretty damn impressed with his backpack that he was showcasing at his booth. Seems like I’m not the only one – the company raised over 1.2 million dollars on Kickstarter. What is fascinating about this backpack is that it literally has every conceivable thing a skater could want. 1. It has a proprietary lock – you can lock this bag to a fence or table. This is a crucial feature because sometimes you fear your bag is going to get lifted if you are at skatepark. 2. It has a phenomenal speaker – and you can play music for up to 96 hours 3. As crucial as the lock is a solar charger. You can charge your phone up to 6 times. 4. There are hidden pockets to hide your cash or secret phone numbers! There are more features, but these four alone make the pack a skater’s perfect backpack. Of course, true skateboard backpacks also include straps to hold the board. While this could be something that Solgaard could add to future products, I am not sure how much it would help things. The backpack is truly exceptional. Kudos to Adrian and his entire team!
