Posture comparison with BackTpack vs standard backpack with the same load

Recommend BackTpack to Patients

First off, BackTpack’s amazing bag design saved my back and shoulders through medical school! I recommend them to my patients who have heavy things to carry on a daily basis. They work great when bicycling and hiking, and when you hang it on the back of a chair – your books, pens, snacks and water

Brothers having Healthy Backs with BackTpack

Two teenage boys enjoying their BackTpacks

It’s comforting to know I am not damaging my back. I love how I can sit with the pack on while I’m on my way to school.   I love how the pack feels on. My old backpack hurt my back. I also like the pockets and all the different colors are fun!

I love my BackTpack! It has improved my life in so many ways. You don’t realize just how much of a difference it makes until you transfer the items from your traditional backpack into the BackTpack. It’s equivalent in weight and yet it it feels so much lighter! There are times I hardly even notice

Osteoporosis With Compression Fracture

Great bag. I use it for my main shopping. I was horrified to realise the damage a rucksack does to ones posture young or old. I have severe osteoporosis with a T5 compression fracture so I certainly don’t want to make it worse. Thanks for a wonderful invention.

Durable Bag for Medical Examiner

These bags are almost indestructible, and wash well. They are rather like Birkenstock® shoes; you need to be sure you like the color when you buy them, since they take years to wear out. The current bag has survived a few purses and is in better shape still than all the purses I have junked.

No Backaches and Safer on Ice

Ten year old girl happy with pink BackTpack 3.1

Thank you for the BackTpack! I liked it for the following reasons: I didn’t have to worry about all my belongings not being able to fit because this backpack has lots of room in it. When it’s icy and times when we have a lot of homework, I don’t have to worry about tipping over
