    As for the bag itself, it really is made of good construction.

    As a Krogan who loves his guns, I found that I often had trouble carrying all of them around. I wanted a backpack to lug them about to and from Palaven to help in my fight against the reapers. Unfortunately, backpacks are made on Earth, so most are developed for humans. I contacted the Shadow Broker about a fix for my dilemma. He pointed me to the Pangolin backpack, which would comfortably fit the shape of my hump. It was a bit pricey, but worth the cost. Now I can carry my Revenant, my Graal Spike Thrower, AND my Widow easily wherever I go.

    After the genophage was cured, I decided to foster krogan babies. Long story! Anyway, I wanted to spare no expense for my babies. They needed a tough rucksack to carry their supplies to Pyjak hunting class. It was difficult to find a suitable bag because they were all mostly emblazoned with Hanar Montana faces which is, frankly, not befitting of an aspiring Battlemaster! This pangolin backpack is classy, fits comfortably on any hump big or small and won't get you headbutt in the cafeteria.

    I purchased the Cyclus Pangolin Backpack for my wife, as she had found the item a few months back and I wanted to surprise her for her birthday. She could not have been more thrilled. She absolutely loves the ingenuity of Cyclus to integrate both style and recycling used rubber that would other wise sit in a trash heap.

    As for the bag itself, it really is made of good construction. The backpack holds its shape well and will protect items inside. The shoulder straps are heavily padded, which is excellent, but the size of the backpack means the bag sits more at the center of the back than at the shoulders, so much of the strap just spans the distance between your back and shoulder, rather than sitting higher on your shoulder as most backpacks do.

    The size of the bag is somewhat disappointing as it does not hold a laptop, notebooks, or full-sized textbooks all that well. The back pocket in the bag is big enough to house an e-reader, but that's about it. The organizer pockets are well-designed and easily put to good use though. The space in the bag is good, and it will hold a fair amount of items, but again, smaller or folding items (jacket, lunch in a container, etc).

    My wife mainly uses the bag as a work purse, containing her wallet, cell phone, e-reader, jacket, sweater for work, and her lunch, and it still has plenty of room. She is constantly getting comments and questions about how it works and where she got the bag, and how it looks like "a big armadillo," which is, of course, the point behind the design.

    The bag attaches at the top with a forked clasp on the carrier's spine side of the bag.

    I spotted this bag on a little backstreet in Amsterdam a few years ago - bought it for 199 Euros because I knew when I saw it how unique it is.

    As a designer item, it is incredibly visually striking simply because it is meant to mimic the protective scales of the Pangolin. The bag I got from Amsterdam extends and retracts the "scales" to reveal the relatively small inner compartment, where the pouches can hold your pens, phone, etc.

    I've found the bag to be somewhat impractical for daily use because I'm a commuter and having something this bulbous on your back doesn't make it easy to squeeze onto a crowded bus or train. Plus the inner compartment is limited when it comes to things of a square or rectangular nature. If you have a tablet, a book, and a pair of shoes, you're good to go. If you have a bunch of thicker text books, you'll want something without a dome.

    But if you're traveling relatively light with several smaller items, this bag is perfect. It is pretty weather resistant (not completely water proof) by design, but a couple of the panels on the dome are not smooth rubber. The base of the bag (resting against your back) is padded, as are the shoulder straps, which is a nice feature. It's not a gel padding, but a thicker foam type that feels good if you load up the bag with some heft.

    I've never seen another one of these bags on the street, so I'm glad I got it when/where I did. If you pick one up, know you're paying for the time spent making it, the materials, and the unique nature of the design. It's worth it!

    There is not another bag out there like it. It's slightly on the small size, but it's a cycling backpack so it should be expected. It's perfect for my tablet and composition notebooks for school. If you like comments and compliments, this bag brings them in like the plague. Half the time people don't know that it's actually a backpack. In summary: Great for meeting new people. Very Stylish. Innovative. Easy to access. Pricey, but worth it.

    Got this as a birthday present for my best friend. I was afraid she might think it was kind of strange but she also likes backpacks so I was hoping she would like it. She thought it was really cool. It might be better for shorter people as it is a little small lengthwise but it is big on height.
