Given my constant exposure to backache-inducing, keeps-slipping-off-my-shoulders backpacks since gradeschool, it’s really no surprise that I have lost all hope in backpacks. If you’ve been buying Jansport all your life, you should really pay attention because I’m about to tell you why you shouldn’t buy just about any backpack brand – if you want to remain in the pink of health, that is.
It’s time to retire your old backpacks and go for one that’s got your back, so to speak. Find a backpack brand that pays attention to the fact that women and men are not created equally, especially when it comes to the shoulders.
And find one that’s not ridiculously overpriced while you’re at it!
Bad Backpacks Equal Bad Backaches
Back in highschool, I marveled at how most of the girls would rather suffer for fashion than carry their heavy notebooks comfortably. They preferred wearing their rucksacks using just one strap instead of both.
Hey, that other strap is just there for absolutely no reason, right? God forbid if you look like a nerd using BOTH shoulder straps, huh?
