BACK-TO-SCHOOL SACK ATTACK.

BACK TO SCHOOL-THE TRANSITION FROM SUMMER SKATING TO CLASSROOM HATING IS ONE OF THE WORST TIMES IN A YOUNG SKATER'S LIFE. HOWEVER. FIND SOLACE IN KNOWING THAT YOU'LL BE FLOSSIN ON THE FIRST DAY WITH YOUR NEW BAG. IN THE CURRENT KNAPSACK AGE OF MESH POCKETS. CD HOLDERS. ZIPPER COUNTS AND EXCESSIVE TECHNICALITY. WE AT THRASHER BREAK IT DOWN QUITE SIMPLY. CAN IT HOLD UP UNDER PRESSURE? HERE ARE SOME OF THE BAGS WE PUT TO THE TEST

First check out the Fresh Jive pack. It was a'ight, but kinda looked like a multi-colored rectangle box. After pouring about half a canister of lighter fluid in and around the bag, we learned that if you were ever wearing this backpack around open flame, it would catch immediately and you and your Fresh Jive would burn to the ground, dying a slow, torturous death. Also, the fact that we torched it under a giant cross was upsetting to many around us.

Next we gave meaning to the company name Fuct when we tossed their knapsack off a 10-story building, filled with two watermelons. Upon impact, there was a huge explosion and consequently most of the seams holding this backpack intact were blown out.

In need of some extra cash, my homie Mark strapped on his new Volcom backpack and headed for the bank after hours. Using the back entrance, he snagged a couple G's and made the getaway; however, due to the high luminosity of the bag's reflectors. Mark was spotted and later apprehended. He is now serving a 10-year sentence.

The Savier travel bag was quite a piece of work. Never have I seen such an intricate accessory come from a skate company. However, how can we be sure of its durability? What's gonna happen when you smoke a couple j-bars and forget that the monster sack is strapped to the back of you car. Oh shit! Marley's lyrics must have drowned out the thumps and skids, 'cause ya just realized the backpack was dragging behind your ride for the last 30 minutes. The $200 sack is dust.
