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

Everyday for Two Years

After wearing my BackTpack, I will never wear a regular backpack again. After two years it shows minimal wear and tear, and I have used it every day. I have used it for my mile-long walk to work, for travel to art lessons, and as my only luggage on plane trips. I love

No Backaches and Safer on Ice

Ten year old girl happy with pink BackTpack 3.1
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

Pain Reduced in TMJ, Neck and Shoulders

I completed my Animal Biology Degree at the University of Guelph. Normal backpacks put a lot of strain on my shoulders, neck and back which in turn inflamed my TMJ or temporal-mandibular joint disorder. I found the BTP4 helped fix my posture and reduce the strain on my neck and shoulders, which reduced the inflammation

Better than Pilates

I’ve had intermittent back pain throughout my adult life – most likely due to poor posture and not being able to sit properly in most chairs (I am five feet tall). I practice Pilates to help with my core strength and other things but the BackTpack just automatically makes me stand taller and feel better

Voice Improvement for Singer

You asked about my motivation behind the purchase of the BackTpack and it was really to try and reduce (and hopefully eliminate) pain and discomfort from my traditional backpack. I sing for a living, and so any undue stress or tension immediately manifests in my voice and affects my work. This is a big part

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

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!

BackTpack Great for Medical School

I don’t get any kickbacks from BackTpack, but their bags – I found one in my school bookstore and then bought another online – were my go-to in medical school. I was able to keep lunch, snack and personal items (purse) on one side, and my school documents, computer, and some medical supplies on the
