Thanko Cool Backpack

Rucksack-shaped back cooler

You have seen the fan-equipped clothes that Japanese workers wear and you get the idea. But you want something more versatile and, to be frank, more stylish – something you can just put on that looks like an accessory and not a uniform. The good news is that the Thanko Cool Backpack is exactly that: it keeps you cool without changing your whole look for the worse. And the even better news is that it doesn't only do that: it also functions as a regular backpack, featuring enough pockets to accommodate your everyday items!

At 380 x 480 x 80 mm (15 x 19 x 3.1") and with adjustable front and side belts, the Thanko Cool Backpack can be adjusted to fit almost any body shape, so you don't have to worry about sizes. It has four fans that circulate air and feed its two cooling plates, which come in contact with your back, lowering its temperature significantly (down to 15°C lower than the environmental temperature). The only thing you need to do is attach it to a USB 5 V 2 A mobile battery because it doesn't come with its own. But it does come with a special pocket for it as well as with three more pockets for all your stuff!
