The DC x Slam City Skates Medium Skate Backpack is skate-specific in terms of its functionality with two skateboard straps across the front, more than capable of handling any size of skateboard.

"All in all, a fantastically priced, skate-specific backpack incorporating a slim silhouette and iconography from two of the biggest players in the game."

Internally, the backpack is fully lined, with a print relating to the dates of foundation of both the Slam City Skates shop and of DC itself, along with DC X Slam co-branded reflective suede patch on the outside front panel.

Highly recommended. If you’re not 360 flipping trashcans out of raised tiles within a week of purchasing, then you’re doing something wrong.
