The latest fusion of design and technology creates a backpack that absorbs and harnesses the energy of the sun while you're wearing it.

RLX, the luxury line for men from designer Ralph Lauren has unveiled a new backpack that combines a slick yet durable design with exciting new technology. The Solar Panel Backpack is made from a thin, water-resistant material, crafted in Italy and contains its very own solar panel. The paneled pack can generate a 3.45 watt current that can charge an iPhone or iPad in about two or three hours when the sun is shining at full strength.

This makes it perfect for hiking up the mountain and then sitting on the summit and reading the latest edition of the New Yorker on your iPad. The only hitch is that the pack retails for a cool $800, which might be worthwhile if you want to twitpic your friends into a jealous rage, while out sailing on your yacht in the blinding sunlight.
