No Longer Strain on Neck When Walking or Using Public Transportation
With my traditional backpack, I was experiencing back pain and headaches caused by neck strain as the heavy loads would pull on my neck and shoulder muscles. As I need to carry a variety of items such as tools, books and electronics for work and study, I was looking for an ergonomic alternative. With the… BackTpack 4, I find that the even weight distribution allows me to stand straight and walk a lot faster even with the same loads I used to carry. The ability to carry loads for a longer period without the constant strain on my neck, shoulders and back have taken the hassle out of walking and using public transport. I am really enjoying the use of my BackTpack 4 and look forward to more innovative and ergonomic products from your company!

European Traveler Loves BackTpack’s “Comfort and Luxury”
We are back from Copenhagen where we spent Christmas and New Years. I used this pack daily for 10 days and carried each day a large bottle of water in each side plus what ever else I needed for the day. I didn’t take off the pack at all for at least 8 hours each… day. You can see that I was bundled up with 5 layers of clothing because the temp was about 25F with the wind chill running about 17F. I could sit easily without removing the pack. I was amazed at the ease of carrying a moderate “load” one would expect to have on vacation. I can assure you that you will never have a customer any happier with your product than I am. It was wonderful not to have to take a day pack off every time I sat down. We rode city busses, subways and commuter trains hundreds of times and it was great to have the comfort and luxury of leaving the BackTpack on. Thanks again for a great product. Bravo BackTpack.

BackTpack Great for Medical School
I don’t get any kickbacks from BackTpack, but their bags – I found one in my school bookstore and then bought another online – were my go-to in medical school. I was able to keep lunch, snack and personal items (purse) on one side, and my school documents, computer, and some medical supplies on the… other. I moved easily from my bike to my classroom, or to a bus.
I recommend this to my patients who are students. Read more “BackTpack Great for Medical School”
BackTpack Worked “Wonders” for Posture and Back Pain
My daughter has been having back problems for several years from carrying her standard backpack to school. Her pain had escalated to the point that we were making weekly visits to the chiropractor and she was taking nightly pain medication so she could sleep. I found the BackTpack and decided to try it. It works… wonders. Her posture has straightened since she no longer has to bend forward in order to balance the weight and her pain disappeared within the first week. She did have some muscle soreness from adjusting to the new pack, but that disappeared within a couple of days. She likes having her things at her side instead of on her back and the pack is easy to get on and off. She just grabs the briefcase handles to sling the BackTpack around. Although the price of the BackTpack is more than a standard backpack it is well worth it. I would highly recommend the BackTpack for anyone, back problems or not.Read more “BackTpack Worked “Wonders” for Posture and Back Pain”
Hiking with BackTpack. Less Sweaty, Less Pain, Easy Access
Our hike for the day was 19 miles and I was very pleased that I chose this pack over the traditional backpack/day-pack. I was able to carry my trail-food, water bottles, water filter, first aid kit, camcorder, and still have room for my clothing layers as I donned or doffed them. I had inner enclosed… pockets to keep my keys and ID in a safe place. The saddle bags were sinched nicely against my body so there wasn’t any undesirable loose swaying of the packs and to my surprise the packs did not interfere with my normal arm swing. I was able to retrieve my own water bottles to hydrate while I continued to walk. I avoided having thoracic burning pain that I would normally get from hunching over when wearing a traditional backpack. I also was a lot less sweaty in my upper back by having that area “exposed” instead of being under a backpack. I felt the BackTpack was far superior to the traditional day-pack and I plan to wear it on my next two summer day hikes this season. Read more “Hiking with BackTpack.

WOU Dance Professor Endorses BackTpack!
Dancers are notorious for carrying around bulky dance bags slung over one shoulder causing them to lean to one side. Students often load up their traditional backpacks to such an extent that they must lean forward in order to counterbalance the heavy load of books on their backs. Both of these situations cause poor alignment… of the spine and can lead to chronic neck and back pain. The design of the BackTpack is the ideal solution to both of these problems because it allows the wearer to balance the load evenly between both sides of the body, which promotes proper vertical alignment of the spine.

Back and Neck Problems “Disappear” with BackTpack
This is the most amazing load carrying system ever invented. All my back and neck problems disappeared within 2 days of using it, and as a student carrying many pounds of books it has been a literal lifesaver for me. Every student should have one, as well as anyone who carries any kind of weight… for any reason. I cannot imagine being without one now. Do yourself a favor and get one, your back, neck and body will thank you every day. I wish I had this back when I was hiking the deserts of the southwest, I would not have suffered the decades of back and neck pain I have endured if I had. Thank you so much BackTpack and God bless all of you. Read more “Back and Neck Problems “Disappear” with BackTpack”
They work great on bikes of all kinds.
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… bottles are easily accessible. Second, what a helpful emergency kit suggestion! Saving this to make up my own! Read more “Recommend BackTpack to Patients”
Student Chooses BackTpack Over Conventional Backpacks
After I had been wearing my BackTpack for several months, I tried on my old conventional backpack to see if I’d feel a difference…and did I ever! I never realized how uncomfortable a regular backpack is until I had the BackTpack.
