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”
Smiles and Energy
She loves her new bag. Came home full of smiles & energy and not so tired anymore.
Brothers having Healthy Backs with BackTpack
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!
BackTpack Facilitates Upright Posture
The unique design of the BackTpack distributes the weight of the contents perfectly between the shoulders and pelvis. Unlike other backpacks which can place their weight on the upper back or unevenly on the torso, the BackTpack facilitates upright posture of the user and supports ease of movement. It is highly recommended for people who… have back or posture issues due to low muscle tone. Read more “BackTpack Facilitates Upright Posture”
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””
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”
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.… I use it nearly everyday. I have used one bag for Medical Examiner work for several years, and one bag for everyday use. Read more “Durable Bag for Medical Examiner”
No Backaches and Safer on Ice
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… and falling on the ice which can lead to a concussion. Also, I don’t get backaches because the backpack doesn’t rest on my back. And when you have a lot of homework and you get a backache, oh, it hurts! Read more “No Backaches and Safer on Ice”
Back Pain Relief After Multiple Car Accidents… Recommendation to PT and Chiropractors
I was rear ended right before finals week one term and was forced to use a small rolling luggage carrier for nearly two weeks as I couldn’t carry my books on my back with a regular backpack due to whiplash in my lumbar and cervical spine. Apart from the excruciating pain that caused for the… first several days, it would have really interfered with my healing. Before the next term started, I ordered a BackTpack to be my new solution. In the first three weeks of the term, I had no significant pain that I could link directly to carrying my thirty pounds of books. Then I was rear ended again (I know…). After the second accident, wearing a traditional backpack is simply out of the question. With BackTpack, even after the second accident I’ve had none of the back pain I had come to expect from having thirty+ pounds of books on my back. I’ve even recommended BackTpack to my chiropractor–honestly, these packs should be in every physical therapy or chiropractic clinic in the world so that patients like me can learn about them and acquire them easily.
