In the event of a zombie apocalypse, grab the Chrome Cardiel: ORP Backpack, hop on your bike, and get ready to weave between cars as you hack the heads off those lame-brains.

Pretty much only good for hiking

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The bag is too thin and unstructured. Even putting in a laptop or books is a struggle because the plastic cloth sticks to items and since there is no stiffness it's impossible to get them in.

I can see this being fantastic for hiking though - the bag itself weighs NOTHING and if you're only carrying clothing and food, and do not need constant access, this is the thing!

Does the trick pretty rad.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It is very light. Very waterproof. Looks cool!

As one would expect- not a lot of support.

Makes your back sweaty because it is waterproof and has no lift of the fabric from your back.

Holds a lot of stuff for sucha light pack.

I got it on steep and cheap for 35 bucks. Great value for that price. I do not think it is worth 90.
