My old backpack just weighed me down

My old backpack just weighed me down and half the time it was resting on the back tire when I rode my bike. My backpack even got a hole where it was resting on the bike tire. It just got too hard for me to ride my bike so I stopped. With my BackTpack, I

Brothers having Healthy Backs with BackTpack

Two teenage boys enjoying their BackTpacks

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!

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.

Pain Relief in Back, Neck and Shoulders for Guide Dog Handler

Woman with guide dog in comfort and balance using her BackTpack
I got your product from someone who had bought a number to resell. I’ve had it since mid June and have to say that it’s an incredible product! I have arthritis and deteriorative disk disease in my neck and upper spine, C6 through T4. This came about as a result of carrying heavy computer bags

Back Pain Relief for Physician/Mother using BackTpack

Women sitting in a vehicle happily wearing her BackTpack
After two poor-outcome lumbar back surgeries in four years, I found out on my own how difficult it is to carry possessions in a traditional backpack, purse, briefcase or bag. The BackTpack is just great! I can wear it in the car, keep it on when I sit, load and unload when it’s on, and

Back Pain Relief for HS Student

When I used the conventional backpack, I experienced back pain frequently, and was always overloading my backpack with books and binders. Within the first three days of using the BackTpack, my back pain was almost entirely gone, and has since completely disappeared. I can also carry the same amount, without walking around hunched over.

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.

Hiking with BackTpack. Less Sweaty, Less Pain, Easy Access

Hiker using his BackTpack
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

WOU Dance Professor Endorses BackTpack for Dancers Posture and Own Children’s Safety

School children heading to school with comfort and safety using 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

We are back from Copenhagen where we spent Christmas and New Years. I used this pack daily for 10 days and carried each day a large bottle of water in each side plus what ever else I needed for the day. I didn’t take off the pack at all for at least 8 hours each

BackTpack Improves Balance on Uneven and Icy Surfaces

I received my BackTpack by mail yesterday. I loaded it with library books this morning and took off over very uneven, icy trails across about 10 blocks of parkland to my local library. Balance is superb. It is great to be able to load and unload without removing the harness and bags. It will be

BackTpack Worked “Wonders” for Posture and Back Pain

My daughter has been having back problems for several years from carrying her standard backpack to school. Her pain had escalated to the point that we were making weekly visits to the chiropractor and she was taking nightly pain medication so she could sleep. I found the BackTpack and decided to try it. It works

BackTpack Helps Student’s Back, Neck and Shoulders after Accident

Over the past 4 years I was in a couple of car accidents in which I was rear ended while at a full stop. Because of this, I have major issues with my neck and lower back. As a result, I haven’t been able to handle any type of bag that I try to carry.

BackTpack for Bulged Disks, Arthritis, and Fibromyalgia

I have used a BackTpack everyday for several years now. It’s worn out now and I’ve just ordered a new one. I had two bulged disks and arthritis in my spine AND fibromyalgia (and serious hand issues so I can’t use a rolling backpack); the BackTpack has been a big factor in allowing me the

A Help for Scoliosis

Ball State Theatre and Dance students in the hall all wearing BackTpack

I suffer from mild scoliosis, and years of wearing conventional backpacks and shoulder/tote bags continued to move my body in this ill direction. The BackTpack is groundbreaking because it doesn’t cause alignment problems to worsen like an average bag would. It frees your shoulders, neck, and spine in a way no other bag can!
