A backpack is one of the most versatile methods of storage and transportation in the world. But poorly designed packs can cut into your shoulders and put unnecessary pressure on your back. Even people without back problems report feeling pain when using a badly-made backpack. For people with bad backs, getting a backpack that doesn’t hurt can seem impossible.
There are a number of backpack manufacturers who have taken note of these complaints, though. They’ve begun to design backpacks with specialized straps and panels. These backpacks are breathable enough to keep your back cool, and their straps disperse weight so your muscles aren’t overtaxed.
Whether you need a backpack for hiking, travel, school, or casual use, there’s an option out there for you.
