50 Shades of Solid Gray

This bizarre hardshell backpack from Solid Gray inspired a variety of responses when we wore it around the IndependentTraveler.com office: "Reminds me of Stormtroopers! ... You look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle with that on your back! ... Whoa, is that a porta-potty?" It's designed to protect your laptop, but for this price we're pretty sure you can find an alternative product that doesn't make you look like a turtle.

Price: 159 euros (about $204 US) on Solid-Gray.com
Cringe Factor: 9/10
