Riding the tube (or any public transport for that matter) at peak times is often a well-orchestrated ballet as you and your fellow passengers jockey for position to snatch up seats as they become available. But why go through that struggle every day when you can just wear this folding backpack chair to work every day and guarantee yourself a place to sit during your commute?
You probably won't always remember to bring an umbrella when the weather is gloomy, but as long you're wearing this Puma Urban Mobility Backpack from designer Hussein Chalayan, you'll always have a quick way to keep your head dry.
