Prevents Usual Back and Shoulder Problems
I bought the BackTpack several years ago and have used it as a work bag, travel bag, and bike bag. It works. It’s lightweight yet really durable. Over a period of years the only significant issue was a chest clip that needed replacing and the company sent me one as soon as I told them… about it. The thing I like the most though is the fact that it’s really helped prevent some back and shoulder problems I was having that were in good part due to carrying too heavy of a backpack. The way the BackTpack balances the load and avoids stressing my shoulders is awesome. And it works great as an airline carry-on because it holds a bunch of stuff but still fits really nicely under an airline seat. Sweet. Read more “Prevents Usual Back and Shoulder Problems”
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.

They work great on bikes of all kinds.
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.
Pain Free Activity
Back T Pack is the best for travel, hiking, sitting on a fast train in Europe and playing frisbee on the beach! Builds good bones and posture, too!It keeps you aligned, balanced and pain free! Yay!
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”
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”
