Dancers are notorious for carrying around bulky dance bags slung over one shoulder causing them to lean to one side.

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

Backpacks for my daughter since starting to wear her brace have been difficult… we tried a few different options and none were really great… until now!

BackTpack is Amazing for a Blind/Visually Impaired Person

This product is amazing! I have been looking for something like this since I became a white cane user over four years ago. As a blind/visually impaired person, our hands are already occupied with our guide dog and/or white cane. We have to bend a lot to care for our dogs who are our eyes
