"this is a clever alternative to the standard shaped skate-specific backpack with striking Indy branding and a couple of innovative touches."

This is a bag with supreme skate functionality aspects; with an adjustable dual strap skate carry system on the face side, backed up with a heavy-duty abrasion resistant PVC front panel to avoid griptape wear when carrying your board.

The ergonomic shoulder straps and back panel are also heavily padded so even if you’re carrying around a 9" wide monster of a set up, you’re not going to feel the strain.

Internally speaking, the Independent Conceal Skate Backpack has a shaped butterfly main opening access point with reinforced zip, so that you can get straight in with no fuss and also meaning that due to this larger than average backpack opening that folds back, you can store larger items without straining the zips.

Additionally you get two side stash pockets, an interior magazine pocket, organizer pocket, detachable key ring and a very innovative internal fleece-lined pocket to carry the more delicate of your belongings; perfect for sunglasses and/or camera lenses which you can stash with no fear of scratches.

Basically speaking, this is a clever alternative to the standard shaped skate-specific backpack with striking Indy branding and a couple of innovative touches.

Highly recommended at the price.
