It could be hidden with a plain rucksack cover and when needed uncovered to charge, the site says about 3 hours for a camera battery so maybe that's to slow anyway which would likely make any solar solution too large, more valuable and likely to be stolen, I see you can get a multi charger for 4 batteries at a time so two of those charging overnight might do the job if of course you can find a power source

As John says, an invitation to theft. I'm surprised it doesn't seem to have a cover for the cells.

They want $259 for the solar array alone, so it must be pretty special, well above average for toughness, reliability, etc. - or really overpriced.

The 19v output option would be great for a laptop. It's not exactly tuned to Tina's needs, with no 110v inverter, so one would need to be added. Looks to me like all the function but 19 v, plus 110v, could be easily put in an existing backpack for under $100. But it wouldn't be charging while one walked around.
