It’s dangerous to carry alone.

Your backpack carries books, but can you use it as a means of defense? This Hylian shield backpack is built with battle in mind.

No seriously. Not only does it look like Link’s favorite shield, it’s as stiff as a Goron’s skull. The hard shell shield surface is perfect for cosplay and live action role play. And yes, I suppose it works as a backpack too. The inner padding makes it perfect for laptops and tablets alike.

Best of all, you won’t have to shell out a side quest’s worth of Rupees to buy it. This massive and practical backpack is available on ThinkGeek for $15.99 (regularly $59.99).
