First Post Ever. Did it wrong first time; think I'm on the right track now.
The concept is simple; a bag that keeps your stuff organized and protected
and makes everything easy to access.

This has a pocket for your hands that also has a hidden elastic pocket for your phone/whatever. Think about the elastic pocket like a sheet pulled tight on a bed, you could stick things in there and they will not move around too much. So it's a bag that will let you keep your hands warm, and your stuff accessible.

hi all...

i always carry a heavy backpack. macbook, books, drawing paper, rulers, markers, pencil, pen, etc.
well, i came out with idea a backpack that has a protection, in strap & soft form to reduce the back pain - heavy load. devided 2 compartments for laptop & books.
the rubber form, somehow following our back side, shoulder & neck.
elastic case in front for ruler & drawing tools.
the strap can be take off, change it to massenger bag...somehow, with flexible joint on it, and magnet / connect device.

maybe, can add more pocket in front / compartment for drink /pocket camera

overall, the backpack doesnt limit our style & fashion.

thanks for viewing & comments

Here's my submission for shoulderbag/backpack -
Looks like a match book with a reflective strike strip for high visibility-
Clear outside pocket to customize cover
Straps covert it to a backpack or shoulder bag.
Opens to reveal long pockets (match body) and short pockets (match head)

Both of these ideas have be created with a view to adding more versatility to the day bag.

The first one is a shoulder bag that can unzip into a rucksack.

The second is a combination of bags that connect together to form one pack.

Taking inspiration from the popular vinyl designer toys, this design seeks to bring more fun and personalizatin to the messenger bag. Whether it is used for school, travel, or work, this messenger bag is designed to be both fun and functional. Additionally, while only one character is shown in the image, many more can be added to create a whole line of unique "characterz," possibly even allowing customers to "design their own character" later on down the road.

See image for feature details.

This is my first try at the 1HDC and took 50 mins then around 10 mins or under for uploading.

I'm quite happy with the outcome although I still think it looks like a normal bag which I wanted to try and get away from, oh well.

This is my first participation at 1hdc. My entry is about a backpack for people who studies/ work and then go to the gym or practice some sport, and don´t have time to go back home and pick up your stuffs like tennis shoes, t-shirts, shorts or whatever they need to practice sports.
So my backpack is basically divided in two parts, with a zipper making a link between them. You can put your books or personal belongings on the upper part, and your sneakers/some clothes on the lower part.
If you want, you can use just the upper part, for that days you are not in the mood to go direct to school or work to the gym (lazy days :)
You can use just the lower part too, because there´s a strap on it helping you to carry your stuffs.
I wish I could have more time to develop this, but it´s something that just came up to my mind, since I work and then go to exercise three times a week after work, and always have to bring my purse with my personal stuffs (wallet, cellphone, necessaire, diary planner, etc) and add a backpack with me. I wish I could have just one piece of purse/backpack to carry all my stuffs.
That´s it :)

The Idea: To design a lightweight, fully padded wall using just "air";
- less space consumption for shipping to storage
- textile covered inflatable plastic
- less plastic usage
- pen/ marker holders can be found inside the front panel
- laptop compartment also included
- mesh fabric allows air to pass, between bag and user's body

I hope to receive comments from everyone. Thanks I had so much fun doing it.

Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness is largely matter of conscious choice.

Right used the rest of my allocated time:

This bag is so you never loose anything in your pag ever again:

*Has 2 pouches one small pen pouch and one large area for books markers
* It was a central zip so you can essentially unfold your bag; this can be usefull for when looking for something small and tiny in your bag without having to tip everything on the floor
* The central zip system also allows for easier cleaning if you make a mess of your bag
* Magenetic cathces again to hold the front of the bag shut (these could be replaced by male femal catches if required

The bag aesthetic is to resemble a shirt hense the pocket pouch. Obvously all canvas etc... can change and do a better job of colour scheming.

Any comments please critique

This is the back to school bag for the individual who has no school to return to. This bag is designed for the traveler, who views the world as a classroom.

I've been living and traveling (and learning) in the Far East for the past few months and I guess this is something of my dream bag. Its versatile, adaptable (small enough that it forces you to travel light) and best of all it comes with a walking stick that doubles as what I could only think to call a "hobo stick".

For now colors and materials will have to wait. Took me one hour (that was with my roommate returning from his weekend excursion to Hong Kong and his retelling of his experience at the Chungking Mansions).
