Editor’s Note: This is post #50! It has been 174 days or 5 months and 23 days since the first Black Rucksack post and we’ve come a long way! Since the first post, we’ve posted regularly on Tuesday and Thursdays, added over 350 RSS, Twitter and Facebook followers, launched the Black Rucksack Life Hack and the Black Rucksack Polestar. We look forward to filling the gear needs of even more subscribers and readers!
The equation is simple: “something that breaks” + “something that protects things that break” = “protected something that breaks”. And despite that simple formula, I can’t seem to stop breaking sunglasses. The reason I would continually shatter, snap and horribly disfigure sunglasses is I couldn’t find the “something that protects things that break” or, a good hard case for sunglasses. Finally, at long last, I found one… the Civilian Lab Pod.
Civilian Lab is a company I only recently became familiar with. After using one of their gear harnesses I borrowed from a buddy, I must say, they produce some quality, gear ready packs and the Pod is no exception. It’s rugged, solid and capable of preventing my sunglasses from a thrashing.
The exterior of the Pod is rigid and durable and made of a ballistic Nylon while the interior of the Pod is made of a softer material to protect the glasses from being scratched. The interior dimensions of the Pod are 6 7/8″ Length x 2 3/8″ Width x 2″ Height; sufficient for most sunglasses. The Pod also has a snap hook for easy and fast attachment to the rest of your gear.
