Adjustable shoulder straps
  • Padded for comfort
  • Secured in place by an adjustable sternum strap, so they never fall off your shoulders
Adjustable LAP-STRAP
  • This unique feature is essential for spinal health. When you sit or squat while wearing the bag, the LAP-STRAP immediately transfers the weight of the bags off the shoulders and spine and onto the thighs without having to remove the shoulder straps. This prevents unhealthy load-bearing through a flexed (rounded) spine.
  • Allows bags to remain accessible at your sides if you choose to remove shoulder straps while seated
Integral hip-loading belt 
  • Takes the weight of the bag off of your spine and shoulders if/when you need to do so for comfort or because of injury
  • IMPORTANT! Use of the hip-loading belt reduces the posture training effect of the BackTpack carrying system
Hip-width adjuster
  • Locking system for desired hip width (2)
Headphone port on each side (8)
Hang loop for storage on a hook
Key fob

    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.

    “As parents, we wanted to try the BackTpack out for ourselves to see why our child chose the BackTpack over her standard style cartoon back pack and so we loaded it up and went out for a walk. We discovered the posture, comfort and balance she found in wearing it was in fact as fantastic as she said. We could now see using the BackTpack not only for her school but for us too at work, doctor visits, park time with our kids or pets, mall shopping, hiking, camping, events, amusement parks, flea market shopping, farmers markets, vacations, tailgating events, and even for quick bagless grocery shopping!”

    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!

    • Thank you Fernando. That is all wonderful to hear. So glad that you are free of pain!
