QuikShell Modular Backpack: Pack Only What You Need

It’s like a Thule roof rack for your car, but not. A modular backpack design seems so obvious, I’m surprised no one’s thought of it before.

Modular Backpack

The QuikShell bag is a modular concept that snaps on only what you need. For example, you could have one module for rock climbing, one for base jumping, and one for snowboarding.

You just snap on which ever module you need to the strap skeleton which comes with comfy padded shoulder straps and pockets for extra goodies.

Granted it’s only a concept, but a pretty smart concept at that, no? What do you think? Could this be the future of adventure and sport backpacks?

  1. It is a pretty cool idea, but is it really practical? Why not just have a bunch of backpacks? All you’re really doing is making the straps removable, and possibly losing some of adjustments of single piece bag.

    Granted, being able to clip things in that don’t have straps seems like a good idea, but I don’t think its worth modularizing the bags themselves.

  2. Meh. Jack of all trades, master of none. To have enough stability, seems like it could make some configurations needlessly heavy, too.

  3. I think you could be on to something, regardless of the dud comments above. Creative people always face negative judgment from uncreative people.
    Keep refining your design with more attachments. I believe simplicity it your design makes it great.
    Maybe one reason people would like a pack frame that fits different attachments is because they could customize it to fit their exact body style. That way they wouldn’t have to mess with different packs that didn’t fit the same (or fit at all). Just a thought.
