Let’s be frank, the future is here and it certainly does look good. With everything that’s getting smaller, sleeker and more powerful, it’s easy to see where Adidas got the idea for their latest clothing range that includes the Adidas Y-3 Sport Backpack.
The Y-3 was designed by Adidas’ Yohji Yamamoto and the end result was a low-profile backpack that was somewhere between sports, minimalist and vest with a cyberpunk style to it that seems to come somewhere from the future. It was designed to perfectly fit the contour of your body and even though you won’t be able to carry a laptop in it, it does look good and serves its use for runners and cyclists. The Y-3 fits securely around your body just as a vest would and for added comfort, a waist buckle has been integrated into the design that helps to distribute weight so that it feels almost completely weightless.
Apart from it looking awesome, the silver coloring does have a purpose since it is completely reflective for runners who prefer a nocturnal jog and in case of rain, the material and zippers are both water resistant. For added comfort, the back is padded with Adidas’ ClimaCool technology that draws moisture away from your back and aids in breathability while an inner compartment allows you to store a Camelbak for a quick drink while on the go.
Even though it is a minimalist-style back pack, there are several compartments for you to easily store small items such as a pair of shoes, your mobile and wallet. The Y-3 Sport Backpack will set you back $410.
