Get rear ended in your car, and you’ll probably walk away with a sore neck.  Get rear ended while on your bicycle and you’ll probably carried off in a stretcher to the ER.

The Flux Backpack is 100% waterproof thanks to its  durable 1000 Denier Cordura Nylon exterior and a Tarpaulin vinyl coated polyester lining.  It features a fiber optic strip along the bottom of the bag.  So at night, when the array of LEDs are powered on, it lights up providing fellow bicyclists, and more importantly drivers, with a giant warning light that you’re on the road.

The fiber optic panel is completely waterproof and 100% flexible, so in the event that you do take a tumble, or throw your bag down, it won’t break.  What will break though are the 4 LED lights that reflect light through the flexible band.  No worries, though, as they’re completely replaceable, and can double as a as a stand-alone seat post mounted light for excursions that don’t require a backpack.

You can buy the FLUX for $120, currently at a $60 discount.

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."
