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.
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… as well as use our hands to “see” things. A purse or traditional backpacks are such a hazard for your back and at greater risk of theft. They are also a nuisance, sliding off your shoulder when you bend over. To be able to carry all you need at your sides and bend and stretch in active ways while being safe and convenient is priceless. Carrying toys, treats, and water for my dog…while also carrying my wallet, iPad, iPhone, keys, spare hat/shades and water for me…no longer a hassle with BackTpack. I am truly amazed and thrilled with this product. Read more “BackTpack is Amazing for a Blind/Visually Impaired Person”
Reduced Pain for Field Scientist
BEFORE: After seeing a colleague’s BackTpack, I decided I had to get one for myself. But which one? I could use one for my teaching work. but I also thought it would work well for my work as a field naturalist who carries audio field recording gear, photography gear, and other things necessary for field… work. I opted to try one for field gear first, and it is going to serve me well. I’m 5’3+1/2, small-boned and slender woman. I got the medium/large (standard size) for the field work and will probably get the slightly smaller one for more urban applications. The construction is very good, it looks great, and I am quite impressed with how it supports good body mechanics. AFTER: My new BackTpack keeps my gear evenly distributed and better balanced. It therefore allows me to keep my back straighter, reducing the neck tension and pain that I used to accept as inevitable. I especially love the ease with which I can access all of my gear, and my rather heavy camera now resides in the BackTpack instead of in a case strapped around my waist. There’s plenty of room for lenses as well as my field recording equipment and other supplies.Very comfortable, convenient, and well-made (5 out of 5 stars) Read more “Reduced Pain for Field Scientist”
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”
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.

Perfect for Vinyl Collectors
BackTpack is perfect for record collecting! It has room to carry round 80 records on your body (perfect for gigs in bars where you cannot afford a cab). Even if it’s filled, you can still sit or kneel down and dig in crates. It’s handy for traveling (it qualifies as a “personal item” on airlines,… so you can bring an additional carry-on). You can ride a bike without it getting in your way. I am a fan. Read more “Perfect for Vinyl Collectors”
Occupational Therapy Student Prefers BackTpack
I tried out the BackTpack today at the OTAC conference and loved it!! So comfy and felt like I wasn’t carrying anything! What a brilliant alternative to my current backpack that hurts me every day!”
