Plug into your backpack. Any time. Anywhere.
With a built in Solar Fabric that can take rain, dirt, and even impact, the Lumos Thrill seeker is perfect for trail rides and tours. The Solar Fabric charges a proprietary Lithium-based battery inside the bag which can be used to charge GPS devices, Bike Lights or Smart-phones.
This 12-liter hydration bag has been designed for great stability and clings to the wearer even during the roughest of trail rides. The bag can hold up-to a 3L hydration bladder (bladder not included). The backpack features adequate reflectors for safety and cross-straps for weight distribution. The bag is water-resistant and ships with a fluorescent green rain cover.

“Love this backpack. The solar charger works well, if a bit slowly. But I leave the pack in the sun at my office cubicle, so it’s got time to charge. Pack fits a laptop, and lunch. Not super big, but in my opinion, just right. Small zip pouches on the straps, and beautiful build quality.”

“That orange Thrillseeker bag was my constant companion over 10 months and 20,000 kms. It carried my most important possessions – Camera, wallet, Money, ID cards- and was almost like a second skin. I put it thru’ hell, and still it lasted a while in ten months of southern heat, northern cold, a glacier, treacherous forest treks, torrential rains of East and a desert of West.” -Mohammed Izhaar

What is the warranty on the bag?

What is the life of the battery and the Solar Panel?
The battery is designed to last up to 500 cycles. When the battery charges fully by 100%, it is counted as one complete cycle. If the battery charges by 15% and is then consumed, it counts as 0.15 cycles. The solar fabric is designed to last for 8 years, after which its performance is expected to start deteriorating.
