Bad Back? Try These Lightweight Backpacks For School

My husband is going back to school soon and I could not be more excited. Chris is one of those people who is very intelligent but never pursued a college degree. He has settled for jobs that are pretty low paying and often hard on him physically. I know if he had his degree, he could do something he enjoys. He has a few aspirations, one of which is to be a chef, which would be fine by me! We have a few local schools that have excellent culinary art programs and we are excited he will be joining one of them. We have been collecting his school supplies over the summer and the one thing I still had to get was a backpack. I wanted to get him something that was fashionable, durable and perfect for the techie student. With the excellent products from AIRBAC and their ingenious air support system technology, his back will be protected and he will be a styling geek!

Lightweight Backpacks For School

Great Gifts For The Techie Student

Troy Christy created the innovative AIRBAC when he saw kids at a local school who had a tough time with their heavy backpacks. He knew this could be quite harmful and he was determined to be lightweight yet functional.  The first AIRBAC was a bookbag with a blood pressure cuff sewn in the back., that when pumped, it lifted the backpack to a healthier position on the back. With the patented air support system in the AIRBAC, it allows the weight in the backpack to rest comfortably just above the waistline. This takes the weight off your back and shoulders, relieving the pressure and potential for harm to your lower back. Instead of hunching over, the AIRBACK allows you to relax in an upright position, giving you better spinal alignment.  With the patented air support system, each step you take is absorbed by AIRBAC and not your back. It is not a surprise the AIRBAC was the winner of the 2012 Best Protective Laptop Bag award.

I am absolutely in love with the Premiere backpack I got for Chris, which retails for $99.99. I actually had a double duty in mind for the backpack because it is perfect for me to travel with as well as for Chris to use for school. I also have a bad back, so this is perfect for me to carry my laptop, camera, books and whatever else I need to work with on the road. The backpack has pocket clips and Velcro as a security measurement on the main and side compartments as well as three front straps to pull for an extra security feature. The expandable front pocket adds additional room and the pocket fits up to a 15” laptop. The adjustable compression straps make the bag perfect for anyone of any size and the side mesh pockets can hold a large water bottle. This backpack is perfect for the techie student. I cannot say enough about how awesome this bag is and I would highly recommend it to the traveler, scholar or anyone who could use a fine backpack like this.
