Physical therapist’s son “pain-free instantly”
My son was having difficulty managing his backpack, and started complaining of back and shoulder pain after school. We tried the BackTpack and he felt pain-free instantly. He reports that the BackTpack “doesn’t hurt” and its design allows him to automatically turn on his posture muscles and stand straighter when he is waiting for the… bus and transitioning between classes. He can carry his school binder, a cellphone, lunch and a few books without any difficulty. It’s lasted over a year in middle school with no signs of excessive wear and tear. It’s been a great investment in both wellness and durability. Read more “Physical therapist’s son “pain-free instantly””
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.
BackTpack for Scoliosis, Even With Brace
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! This crazy backpack solves all of the issues she has had, AND is healthier for her back! It applies the load to the vertical axis of the body, eliminates… posture distortion, and the load is easier to carry! I thought she wouldn’t want to try it because it looks different, but she loves it! It was designed by a PT in our group, Marilyn Miller von Foerster. She was so helpful in making sure we got the right model for Kylie. Very excited about this find!!! Read more “BackTpack for Scoliosis, Even With Brace”
Improved My Life in So Many Ways
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… it is there. I have used it for 3-4 years now and it is showing no structural wear. This is truly amazing!! I mean seriously! What products out there in this day and age last longer than 2 years? Especially with daily use/abuse! I’ve loaded up the bag to the brim and ran with it on and… well… lets just say I have no doubts in the “Bounce tested for 48 hours” claim. I just bought two more bags because I want the upgrade to the BackTpack 4 and a different color, not because I need to replace the bag any time soon! I really cannot say enough good things about this bag. It takes a little getting use to at first – you have to get the knack for balancing the two sides of the bag – but once you get a feel for that, your life can begin a new chapter! Just kidding, that is a little too dramatic, but seriously! Buy this bag! You can also wear a backpack with it too which I think is pretty cool. I haven’t had to do this very often but it has come in handy a few times when I have had to carry more than normal. Lastly I just want to say how much I appreciate the customer service. I ordered up two new bags and Marilyn emailed me back alerting me to a Canadian distributor that would allow me to avoid the considerable customs costs! I don’t know about you, but I get tired of being taken advantage of as a consumer so it is nice to see someone that cares! In my opinion, everything from the design to the lasting quality of this product shows care and consideration! Maybe I am going overboard with positivity on this product, but I don’t care! Buy this bag and then tell everyone you know to buy one too! Read more “Improved My Life in So Many Ways”
School Physical Therapist Loves His BackTpack 4
I really love the new BackTpack 4. The build quality is extremely high, and the built-in waist strap make wearing the bag even more comfortable than previous models. I use the strap all the time, especially when walking longer distances in the schools I serve. Even though I’m carrying a full-size laptop, An iPad, Chromebook,… all the cords, adapters, and everything else I need to function during the day, I hardly noticed I’m wearing it. It took me one or two days of playing around with adjustments, especially the spacing between the bags to get it right, but once I did, the bag is more comfortable than any of your products I’ve used before Please feel free to use my name and my comments, if you find them useful. Thank you so much for not only making, but improving this product! Read more “School Physical Therapist Loves His BackTpack 4”
Amazed Student Found BackTpack Helped Back and Shoulders
I have used traditional backpacks my whole life. As a 24 year old, I started to become more aware of the need to protect my body from the negative effects associated with bad posture brought on from backpacks which hurt my shoulders and cause my back to hurt. After much research, I found the BackTpack,… and I was amazed by the design. I have stopped using traditional backpacks altogether and have used the BackTpack on a daily basis. The design is incredible and really helps me carry my things in a much more natural fashion. Its such a versatile product, and it is a wonderful product that has really helped my shoulders and my back feel free from pain associated with regular backpacks in the marketplace. If your looking for a truly unique backpack that is actually good for your back and shoulders, this is it! Read more “Amazed Student Found BackTpack Helped Back and Shoulders”
Good for Riding Bike to School
My old backpack just weighed me down and half the time it was resting on the back tire when I rode my bike. My backpack even got a hole where it was resting on the bike tire. It just got too hard for me to ride my bike so I stopped. With my BackTpack, I… can put my binder on one side and my clarinet on the other. It’s easier to pedal so I’m riding my bike to school again.

BackTpack for Bulged Disks, Arthritis, and Fibromyalgia
I have used a BackTpack everyday for several years now. It’s worn out now and I’ve just ordered a new one. I had two bulged disks and arthritis in my spine AND fibromyalgia (and serious hand issues so I can’t use a rolling backpack); the BackTpack has been a big factor in allowing me the… mobility to deal with graduate school. I’m now in the process of getting a PhD in musicology (music history and literature). Carrying large format books and musical scores around a large campus is a daily part of life. With a conventional backpack, my arms and hands would go numb from my thoracic outlets being squeezed, and my back would be in incredible pain. I have absolutely no problems with the BackTpack. Thanks for such an innovative product! Read more “BackTpack for Bulged Disks, Arthritis, and Fibromyalgia”
Mom with BackTpack and No Pain Hiking
Here is (a photo of) my mom wearing the BackTpack at Machu Picchu in Peru. She said it was so easy for her to carry while hiking and eliminated any back pains. She was hiking in comfort while my poor father used a regular pack and was pretty sore afterwards.
Great Posture and Compartments
We love the Back T pack!! It makes such a huge difference to posture when carrying any weight and all the compartments are great!! Thank you !!
