The Lumos ThrillSeeker is one of the most advanced daypacks designed for cyclists and is one of the lightest Solar Backpacks in the world today. From mountain biking to one-day rides to daily commute, the Lumos Thrill Seeker is designed to handle it all. This 12-liter hydration bag has been designed for great stability and clings to the wearer even during the roughest of trail rides. The bag holds up-to a 3L hydration bladder, has pockets for your bike pump and spare tubes, and just enough space in the main compartment for a rain jacket, and a snack. The 3W Solar Fabric is flexible, light and scratch and weather proof - it can take the rigors of mountain biking. The Solar Fabric charges a 4,000mAh battery that can charge any USB device - from Smartphones to Bike-lights to Mp3 players to GPS devices. The bottom of the bag has a pocket to keep bike tools and a reflective loop to hang a clip-on light. The sides feature two slim pockets to stash energy bars. While not trail-riding, the ThrillSeeker can carry a 13" laptop instead of the hydration bladder and can double up as your commute backpack as well!
The shoulder straps of this pack are of perforated foam, allowing for greater airflow - this enables you to complete your rides with a very low sweat-profile. The sternum strap buckle doubles as a rescue whistle, while waist straps have nifty little pockets, perfect for storing keys and money. The bag is water-resistant and ships with a fluorescent green rain cover.

Can the Solar Panel handle impact?

How much charge would I get?
This would depend on the sun-light. The core function of the backpack is to maintain the charge levels on your phone, or provide a back-up charge. To understand how much light your country receives, check out the solar maps at http://solargis.info/doc/free-solar-radiation-maps-GHI . One hour of light at a level of 1000 will charge a 2000mAh phone by 15%, while at an hour of light at a level of 500 would charge a 2000mAh phone by 7-8%. However, bike lights (and GPS devices) will get charged by higher levels since they have smaller batteries.

Is the backpack water-proof?
