Solid Gray “Bass Pack”

Solid Gray Boom

Did you ever get that feeling that when you first discover a great song track and you just want to share it with everybody? Well, strap one of these backpacks on and let the world know what you’re listening to – just be careful with annoying the people around you because you’re playing the music too loud. The design was a collaborative effort with Portland’s wonderfully imaginative portable sound system makers Case of Bass and the progressive backpack company Solid Gray. The backpack is still in the works and should be coming out in the next few months – you can see more pics of the backpack on Case of Bass’ blog here.
