|If there is a cooler backpack, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen it.
Sprayground has launched an all-new line of cool backpacks, including one in which I’m sure a lot of Toke readers will be interested: the “Pipe Dreams” design.
Yeah, finally there’s a backpack as cool as you are. And it’s that back-to-school time of year, too, so why aren’t you rockin’ one of these around that university campus yet?
Sure, Sprayground creates hot bags with iconic imagery, but the design of the backpacks is thoughtful, too. Each one features a plush velour-lined notebook compartment that will accommodate up to a 17-inch laptop, as well as an inside slip pocket for an iPad or tablet PC.
The main compartment includes inner slip pockets and zippers for organization and other devices like MP3 players/iPods and mobile phone holders.
Sprayground backpacks, including the “Pipe Dreams” design, are available for $48 (plus about $5 for FedEx shipping) directly from www.sprayground.net
and across the U.S. at boutique stores like Kiston and major retailers such as Nordstrom.
Not that this is going to make any impact on your purchase decision — I mean, everybody realizes you’re the coolest thing going — but lots of people have been rocking these Sprayground backpacks lately. When I say “lots of people,” I mean folks like The Black Eyed Peas, Bruno Mars
, and the lovely Perrey Reeves
of HBO’s Entourage.
Sprayground has an interesting history. The company was started by New York City designer DBD, and originally it was created as a blank backpack company designed for street artists to easily transport spray cans
(yeah, we’re talking graffiti bandits here).
DBD grew up in Miami, skateboarding and surfing, and was always inspired by deck art and the street art
at all the local skate spots. As a kid, he was always on the go and would regularly pack his whole life into his backpack, so it only made sense when he started an art-inspoired backpack line years later.
The company evolved into a collection of original designs created by DBD and friends.
Not only did DBD want to create expressive backpacks, but he also put a lot of focus into the construction of the bags to ensure they have a modern shape, fit and feel, with fine regard to detail and to be extremely functional as well as comfortable (they may be the most comfortable backpacks I’ve personally ever worn).
