Paul Rodriguez Signature Skate Pack laptop bag

Posted by Finnian Durkan Categories: Wearables,

Paul Rodriguez Skate Pack incasePaul Rodriguez has accomplished a lot in his skateboarding career.  He was the 2002 Trans World Skating Rookie of the Year, won an X-Games Gold medal in Street Skating in 2005 and also became the first pro-skater to be sponsored by Nike.  Combine all of these things with the fact that his father is famous comedian Paul Rodriguez, Sr. and it is not surprising that P-Rod is branching out to areas beyond grinding rails and landing kick-flips.  Enter Incase and the Paul Rodriguez Signature Collection.  Started in 2008, the current line features a new version of his signature skate pack that can accommodate up to a 17” .  Featuring a reinforced notebook compartment, a dedicated iPod pocket with headphone port, a concealed back panel zippered pocket to secure important documents and heavy-duty, water-resistant YKK zipper pulls with closed-seam construction the P-Rod Skate Pack ensures that whatever you put inside it will be protected from most anything that you or any inevitable multiple-crashes can throw at it.
