Large backpacks, used to carry loads over 10 kilograms (22 lb), as well as smaller sports backpacks (e.g. running, cycling, hiking and hydration), usually offload the largest part (up to about 90%) of their weight onto padded hip belts, leaving the shoulder straps mainly for stabilising the load. This improves the potential to carry heavy loads, as the hips are stronger than the shoulders, and also increases agility and balance, since the load rides nearer the wearer's own center of mass. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/81/8d/45/818d45c8d48ce1857e20a29fa8bfa10d---gifts-thirty-one-gifts.jpg

Alternative names include haversack from the German Hafersack meaning "oat sack"[1] (which more properly describes a small cloth bag on a strap worn over one shoulder and originally referred to the bag of oats carried as horse fodder), Kraxe (a German rucksack with a rigid framework), and bergen (a large load-carrying rucksack, from a design issued by the British Army during the Second World War).[2] In fact, Britons used to call Alpine-style backpacks "Bergen rucksacks", maybe from the name of their creator, Norwegian Ole F. Bergan, combined with the name of the Norwegian city of Bergen.[citation needed]
The most popular time of the year for backpacks is the Back To School season. That's because school backpacks are the most common type of school bag among kids and college students alike. For versatility and value, you can't go wrong with a classic pack like the JanSport SuperBreak; it continues to be a top-rated best-seller year after year. Carrying a laptop across campus or during your commute? Choose a laptop backpack with dedicated compartments designed to keep your device secure and protected. Be sure to use our Laptop Bag Finder (found at the top left of every laptop bag page) to ensure your specific laptop model fits. Wheeled backpacks are also a great choice for students and even professionals who want to haul heavy loads without causing back strain. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/81/c8/08/81c808405917fb4c9e77a1bea4901c9e--morning-ritual-spa-treatments.jpg

I actually use this tote as a diaper bag, I have two children in diapers and it really works great for that. Aside from the way I use it, I think it's an over all great bag. A few issues: the elastic pockets on the sides seem to have lost their tension already, I don't put anything large or heavy in them to cause this, also the pocket in the back.. Wish it was larger, I don't really see the point of the zipper in the bottom of the pocket. The only other issue I have is the straps, wish they had some sort of padding on them, they tend to be a little hard on your hands if you're carrying anything heavy.

I found this particular item so interesting because there are so many ways you can use it. Thirty-One consultant Annmarie Sayyarath showed a way to use it on her Facebook page as an ‘entertainment center’ in the car with an iPad on the top and other different activities in it to keep your child occupied during long trips. I’ve also seen where you can use it as ‘diaper central’ with your diapers and wipes stocked in it, a first aid kit, to hold snacks, etc. You can also use it for “mama stuff” like jewelry, accessories, makeup and toiletries while traveling. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/56/92/51/56925100bde8eb0480e17366e30056cb--jamberry-games-info.jpg?b
The simplest backpack design is a bag attached to a set of shoulder straps. Such packs are used for general transportation of goods, and have variable capacity. The simplest designs consist of one main pocket. This may be combined with webbing or cordage straps, while more sophisticated models add extra pockets, waist straps, chest straps, padded shoulder straps, padded backs, and sometimes reflective materials for added safety at night. These packs are generally produced inexpensively. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/04/ea/7d/04ea7d0e16db0d6ca586b9a489de9492.jpg
External frame packs were designed to carry heavy loads (>20 kg or 40 lb), giving the wearer more support and protection and better weight distribution than a simple, frameless strapped bag. Wooden pack frames were used for centuries around the world. Ötzi the Iceman may have used one in Copper Age Alpine Italy,[5][6] though some archaeologists believe the frame found with the body was part of a snowshoe. Such packs are common in military and mountaineering applications;[7] metal versions first appeared in the mid-20th century. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/8d/6f/87/8d6f873a5f9b925fe764eecba26a075b.jpg
