Kick flips, ollies, and 720s are just a few of the things any skater needs if they hope to garner the admiration of their 4 wheeling peers.  Aside from a boat load of talent, you’ll also need to be able to dress the part, and that includes not just shoes, jeans, and a hat.  It also means sporting a bag that plays complement to your skate way of life, and nothing fits that bill better than the Scumbag.

For starters, the irreverent name should be more than enough to pique the interest of tweens, teens, and those in denial of adulthood.  The roll top backpack provides easy and secure access to the bag’s main pocket, while a set of other pockets found on the back and side of the bag can play home to tools, a smartphone, or anything smaller than 25cm wide by 20cm high.  A waterproof lining and waxed cotton canvas means that in the heaviest of down pours your gear will go unfettered, though we’re sure that the padded shoulder straps and padded back will probably sock up some moister, be it sweat or rain.  But those are all ancillary benefits to this 20 liter bag, as it also includes a front panel that clips into place thanks to a set of buckles and holds a skateboard firmly in place.

You can pick up the Scumbag skater bag for about $150.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
