Raise your hand if your backpack weighed more than you did back in high school. Most of us can remember the feeling of hauling those heavy textbooks around, and our kids have it no easier.
The Product Safety Commission estimates that there are more than 7,300 backpack-related injuries treated annually by hospitals and doctors. Injuries include bruises, sprains, fractures and back/shoulder strains. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that a child's backpack should weigh no more than 10% of his or her weight.

The solution? A backpack that redistributes the weight evenly across your waistline. The only backpack on the market that can achieve this is the AIRBAC, which has an Air System built into the back and under the bag. The proprietary air support system is designed to redistribute the weight of backpack contents, which in turn helps keep the weight off the shoulders and back, reducing stress on the spine and promoting better posture. The AIRBAC also bounces when dropped, protecting your laptop and other breakables.
Scientific studies conducted on AIRBAC by an independent lab revealed the product produced better weight distribution, spinal alignment and posture than a normal backpack.
