Drift back to school with an Initial D AE86 backpack

It’s hard getting up for class but when you’re wearing a snazzy AE86 backpack, you can slide to school in style. Forget your Jansport, a Japanese shop has made a replica of the Initial D Toyota Sprinter Trueno for all your book- (or tofu-) carrying needs.

Licensed by both Initial D publisher Kodansha and Toyota, the car portion of the backpack is made from plastic and unzips at the base in a clamshell fashion. Like the AE86 itself, it’s pretty light, with total weight at just 900 grams (approx. 2 pounds).

It’s compact, too, measuring 32.5 × 21.5 × 25 cm (12.8 × 8.5 × 9.8 in.) and boasting a capacity of 8 liters. Adjustable shoulder straps and a mesh bottom that goes against your back ensure utmost comfort as you navigate grading curves.

The maker, Camshop, plans a run of only 500, so like unmolested AE86s they will also be rare. They are currently available for pre-order at ¥6,600 ($60 USD), but sadly, only in Japan.
