Just a few weeks after releasing its LED-illuminated bicycle helmet, Torch is back – on your back. Like its T1 helmet, the Torch FLUX backpack is designed to keep bicycle commuters a little safer on city streets thanks to its integrated LED lighting.
The FLUX is a rugged pack built of 1,000-denier Cordura nylon. It includes a waterproof vinyl-coated polyester lining. A waterproof fiber optic panel on its face lights up with the help of an LED unit, adding a wearable taillight that shines red. The LED unit is removable and can be mounted to the seat post for trips that don't require a full backpack. It runs for two to five hours and has USB-rechargeable batteries.
Torch is currently offering the FLUX at an introductory pre-order price of US$120. The suggested retail price is listed at $180.
