You know you want to be on the winning side of any argument, and Think Geek seems to definitely be on Team Iron Man with the new Stark Industries Messenger Backpack.
Not to be outdone, the messenger bag not only has the classic Iron Man red and gold color scheme, it also features a (non-working) arc reactor on the strap.
This Marvel Stark Industries Messenger Backpack is the latest development in mobile computing. With a light-up Arc Reactor on the strap, it’s just showy enough to get other people’s attention (and envy). Mostly, it’s practical, with an organizer under the messenger-bag-style flap and a massive 15″ wide x 10″ tall x 1 1/4″ gusset laptop/tablet pouch inside. And if your device doesn’t fit in there? That’s okay. The main compartment also features padding on all sides, just not as much as the dedicated pouch, and it measures 20″ wide x 12″ tall x 6″ deep at base. Boom. It’s perfect for all the Genius Billionaire Playboy Philanthropists of either gender out there or those aspiring to be one.
The Marvel Stark Industries Messenger Backpack needs three triple-A batteries to run the arc reactor, and appears to have plenty of room for even a bulky laptop. The only downside? The $99.99 price tag. Still, the bag looks great and I expect more than one kids to be sporting this bag when school starts up in the fall.
