About a month ago, I reviewed a unique backpack called Solid Gray. It isn't a typical backpack by any standards - it's a unique hardshell pack made of a solid piece of extremely durable polypropylene plastic. Its eye-catching, futuristic design makes it one of a kind, and the overall layout is well thought-out given the nature of the bag.

Now, it's your chance to grab this unique carry-all for absolutely nothing, because thanks to the awesome guys at Solid Gray, we have one to give away.

How to Enter

The contest is now over. Here is the winner, chosen by Solid Gray:

  • Clint P.

And this is his winning comment:

"This is exactly what I've been looking for. I'm leaving for Mars in November. I've been shopping everywhere for a backpack to fit in with the other chimps on board. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find a backpack designed for a trip to space."

Congratulations - you will be contacted for your information in the near future!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

Entries like "I want one because it looks cool!!!11!!oneone" will immediately be disqualified, because there's nothing thought-out about that.

    With this, all potential robbers would think twice!

  • Sean Shanahan

    I need it for the torso of my personal robot assistant.

  • Josh Rice

    I'll paint it green and it'll perfectly compliment my TMNT costume I'm planning this year!

  • fixxmyhead

    this thing is pretty lame even for free. who in there right mind would sport this turtle shell backpack?

  • Jeremy Wunders

    I can't think of a better backpack for the zombie Apocalypse than one that happens to turn me into a ninja turtle.

  • http://twitter.com/qlr Quint

    Where's the tortoise?

  • David Perales

    because it will get me one step closer to creating a master chief suit!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Vince-Au/1834195171 Vince Au

    nice one, thank you

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Temitope-Ogungbadero/611003167 Temitope Ogungbadero

    I'm going to build it legs, and it will follow me around like a pet. It will also get a stun gun in case someone tries to steal it. I'll name it Reginald.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Brandon-Gier/590270856 Brandon Gier

    Well, primarily because it would make a really nice shell for my albino Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume.

  • David Keith

    As soon as I saw this I imagined painting the outside to look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. I have the Halloween costume from when i was like 10, but the clothe "back/shell" is lame,

    Granted I am not sure my costume from when I was 10 will still fit, you never know!

  • ryan

    I would like to have it because I ride a scooter and this backpack might help me slide if I ever fall off.

  • Keenan Antonini

    I have a storm trooper outfit that I use the odd halloween along with various CFL football games, just to stand out and this thing could definitly replace my existing back piece and with some customization I am seriously thinking it would be possible to install a mini-keg on one side and a CO2 tank on the other side...along with some minor cooling adjustments I can turn this thing in to a portable keg and it will look great too...will keep my cool on those hot summer football game days!

  • Zach Cooper

    Because life wouldn't be complete without the weird kid on campus riding a longboard with a stormtrooper backpack. Just saying.

  • http://thekonietzkystrain.tumblr.com/ NeuroMan42

    If I had this I could be Archer... or at least look like a time traveler.

    cocoon mode activate! this is where im going to store my homemade ironman suite.

  • Alex

    To paint it green and be a Ninja Turtle for Halloween.

  • Sxeptomaniac

    I think my wife might strain something rolling her eyes at me if I were to win this one.

    I thought about the Ninja Turtle paint job, but realized that if you paint it flat black, it looks like something Batman would use (The Nolan/Bale one, obviously, there's thankfully no neon and black lights on it, so it's obviously not Schumacher's version, and too boxy/futuristic-looking for Burton's).

    Just going to college this year. This would serve as a great backpack. Love your giveaways, Android Police !

    • http://www.facebook.com/MorrisSEX Javier Cárdenas

      Or you could paint it like a Koopa Troopa!

  • Alexandro Garcia

    That looks like Master Roshi's turtle shell.. i want it

  • Noah

    So I can put my Asus Slider in it and play Jetpack Joyride in real life.

  • EzEp

    I am a soon-to-be police officer and what would make me look more cool than this backpack? nothing... I almost HAVE to have it. Its for the protection of the public after all. THINK OF THE CHILDREN!

  • Daniel

    I commute on my bike every single day, and it would be really awesome if my devices had some protection :-) basically, so I can throw it at cars that almost kill me without breaking my tablet.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1745689461 Hal Motley

    What about respraying it and pretending it's part of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costume.

  • Sheldon H

    I'd slap a couple logos on that thing and advertise my geekness. Android, AP, Solid Gray to name a few.

  • Jon Helsel

    I want to paint it to look like a turtle shell... then I can be a true ninja turtle!

  • Ryan Stuckmaier

    To be completely honest I will probably paint it like a turtle shell and try to mount bo sticks to it.

  • acivick

    I could use it to fend off the giant zombie rats in the subway when I go to NYC. Serious, I think I need this bite checked out, it looks infected.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rinalds.egle Rinalds Egle

    Perfect match for my everyday commuting with motorcycle! :)

  • Eric Garcia

    I need a shell to complete my Michel Angelo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle) outfit.

  • http://twitter.com/deontologician Josh Kuhn

    I want one to protect my gadgets from the hurricane that is going to hit us in a few days.

  • Muzafar Umarov

    I need that so I can carry my eggs in that shell with extra protection.

  • Ryan Stewart

    I would like it because it appears to be more durable/stout than a standard cloth bag. This would be good for the bike. If i were to eat it there might be some hope that the electronics and lunchables inside might not be smashed to oblivion.

  • http://www.facebook.com/troop.threeninetwo Troop Threeninetwo

    I would look so cool biking to work with this bad boy on my back!!!

    I think it'd be an awesome accessory for a MegaMan costume.

    I'd love to win one, so that if I drown while wearing it, I might be mistaken as the Sydney Opera House.

  • Scott

    I like turtles.

    • chey023

      haha, I read it in his voice.

  • Kip

    I want that thing so that I can accessorize my closest. You see, right now my closest is full of useful items such as my work clothes and snowboarding equipment. What it really needs is junk and what better to start that collection with than a ugly backpack that will drive the ladies away. She spends the night, of course enjoys herself in bed, in the morning takes one look in the closest and boom she's out like a frivolous lawsuit.

  • christoph411

    For some strange reason I keep on thinking this backpack looks like some crazy scary snail robot from the future or something... I'm afraid I would wake up in the middle of the night and see the backpack scurrying across the floor or running up a wall or something haha! Thanks Android Police and Solid Gray.

    GIMME
    GIMME
    GIMME !!!!!!

  • NightSider

    I saw a picture of this backpack yesterday and I immediately thought that its great looking thing but it will never see the day of light because its so futuristic. And now you I see one here...it would be so great to have this one, because I could paint it and not only it will be one of a kind looking on its own it would really be one of a kind :)

  • Leon

    I want to build stuff inside!
    Developing for android hardly justifies any need for huge hardware, but as I'm studying media and fine art I'll go further.

    I have no specific Idea, but some of these would get in there for sure:
    Battery (probably lead, i neeed a bag for that :), Antenna/Router (Hotspot), Raspberry-Pi mini ARM Computer (maybe with android :), LED-Beamer, Amp/Speakers (embedded!? my current amp: http://screencast.com/t/O0BA5sx7q5Tq ).

    Fun to have with it (just a few Ideas that come up right now):
    - shell + amplifier for an electronical instrument (e.g. this thing I build, which definitely needs a pretty shell http://interface.khm.de/index.php/teaching/works/mimicry-physics-slider-prototype-1-0/ )
    - recording people in public spaces and amplify them with a slight delay (I'm currently developing an android App that will fit in here.)
    - party
    - maybe i can mod it into an RC-boat (:

    [insert flattering comment about androidpolice and a gushy complimentary close],
    leon

    tl;dr: embed electronics for funky art'n stuff

  • andrew zavala

    I could seriously use a backpack like the Solid gray coz I travel a lot and I really cannot go anywhere without my Lappy: a 17 inch beauty that Ive modded a bit here and there and intend to do more. This will seriously help me in keeping it safe while en route, as she really is dearer to me than anything else.

  • Tyler D’Ambrosio

    i'd like it because it will be a great place to store a baby until needing it later

  • http://www.facebook.com/probableigh Leigh Andrews

    I want the Solid Grey backpack as I am quite accident prone and starting (accidental) fires. That shell looks perfect for scooping water out of local duck ponds to quench the flames of fury! Also handy for making sand castles! :D

  • Dennis Sinclair Sr.

    I own/drive one of these: http://www.yamaha-motor.com/sport/products/modelgallerylib/180/1/0/gallery.aspx, a Yamaha FJR1300. The awesome Solid Gray backpack would match the lines of the bike very well, and also provide an aerodynamic profile when I am hauling butt down the road.

    In addition to the above features, I believe the angles of the pack would help to deflect bullets in the event I need to flee from international terrorists and/or the mob. I will not get into why this might be an issue here....let's just say I like to be prepared!

    Well, I've just adopted this sea turtle, let's call him Crush as that's his name, who unfortunately has become homeless as he has no shell, he feels quite uncomfortable swimming around the local pool naled. I am also thinking that if I win this, I could have a spin off of Finding Nemo with Crush as the star in an adventure of finding a new home...the Solid Gray.

    Once upon a time, a child -- let's call him Bobby, because that was his name -- was born to two ordinary parents. Bobby was a completely ordinary child except for one teeny-tiny, itty-bitty, small little detail: the child was born with no skin on his backside.

    Bobby grew up with an exposed spine. Other children at school made fun of him and frequently poked at his vertebrae with sticks, pencils, and just about anything else they could find that was moderately sharp and pointed. If you've never had your nerve endings exposed like poor, skinless Bobby, imagine how it feels when you hit your "funny bone" and part of your arm goes numb, except instead of going numb, it's like taking a bath in burning hot magma. It isn't very pleasant, and certainly not funny. Not to Bobby.

    Bobby's parents felt terrible for their role in Bobby's abominable existence. They couldn't help but feel that it was somehow their fault, that maybe the sexual intercourse that led to Bobby's conception shouldn't have taken place on top of a large pile vegetable peelers. It didn't matter who was on top. Bobby's backside was peeled like the potatoes the peelers were used on just moments later. Karmic justice, perhaps. Of course, their indiscretion was exposed - how they never noticed the film crew and the growing crowd of restaurant patrons who oddly no longer had any appetite for the restaurant's food is almost as big of a mystery as Bobby's genetic mishap. Love really is blind.

    Bobby's parents were fired, and their dream careers as Olympian vegetable peelers was ruined. They trained all their lives to be world-class vegetable peelers, hoping one day to win the gold medal for the highly-competitive, highly-skilled Olympian sport of vegetable peeling. Nobody would hire them after their wild night of fetishistic passion. No trainer would train them. They survived the term of Bobby's pregnancy with nothing to eat except the discarded vegetable peels of their former colleagues.

    Bobby is an young man now, and to say his life has been difficult is like saying a glass of water is wet. His parents don't have the money for the experimental surgery required to make Bobby whole. Even if they did, the side effects of such surgery may include headache, nausea, heartburn, depression, insomnia, diarrhea, sensitivity to light, schizophrenia, and spontaneous human combustion.

    Bobby's spine needs protection. This backpack is ideal for protecting his exposed spine. It's either this, or a fundraising effort on Kickstarter or Indiegogo.

    Please, think of Bobby.

    • http://twitter.com/homncruse Aaron Burke

      Because it's a FAQ: How do I know Bobby?

    I would enjoy winning this pack because it looks like it would hold up well during fast-paced hiking. Normally I'm worried about tearing my pack on something, or getting caught on the fabric. With a solid, hard-shell pack like this, I wouldn't have that worry, nor would I end up tearing my pack multiple times per year. As long as it doesn't weigh much, it could be a great pack for a three or four day hike.

  • casillas94

    So the thought of being able to tackle someone with my backpack just makes me smile so much inside. Plus if I win this I would not be mad at you, like at all. =)

  • martinlink

    I live in a country where it is snowy 80% of the year. Also, this part of Europe is rather abundant in hills. My daily commute to university consists of going down (and up) a lot of these terrain elements. I can manage the climbing-up part on my own, but just imagine how AWESOME it would be to sleigh down on one of these, then after I've reached the summit, just put it on my back and be on my merry way again!

    I'd slap a custom paint job on it and polish it for extra slippery-ness. My schoolday would be the coolest ever with the Solid Gray on my back.

    Thanks for reading and I really hope I win!

    smart answer - my macbook pro, htc one x and nikon dlsr would all be safe and dry within the backpack.
    Funny answer- I'll dress up as lady gaga (http://www.rockabyebabymusic.co.uk/blog/wp-content/themes/rockabye/images/posts/gaga.jpg) and use this to fit in public and to not stand out.

    I want to decorate it various ways, depending on the event I'm going to whether it be convention, concert, or everyday life.

    Paint it grey, add handles and everyone will look at my jet pack.

    i want to win the backpack because i believe BattleBots to be coming back on television and with this, i've already got 95% of the framework done. Add some wheels and a servo, and bam.

    So, I work in the technology department for a public school district. We just built a new office in the elementary school for me. Can you imagine the expressions on the kids' faces when I am wandering the halls with this killer backpack on?? Besides protecting my tech as I move from building to building, I could paint an Android with a big question mark on the back to have a monthly contest where the kids guess what the computer guy has in his pack. Afterwards, I can reveal the secret item (laptop, Galaxy Note, *cough* iPad *cough*, anything!) and get them to geek out about cool tech!!
