Ralph Lauren [1] has just released a brand new line of high-performance bags as part of his men’s athletic line, RLX [2]. One standout piece features is a sporty number made from a thin, seamless, and water-resistant material, featuring an integrated solar panel [3]. Certainly a sweet and stylish design, the Solar Panel Backpack [4] is also a practical piece that generates enough energy to charge an iPod or cellphone in a matter of hours. But at 800 bucks a pop, is this backpack worth its hefty price tag?
