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/originals/7f/5b/7c/7f5b7c622e7f98de10ecc2cdaa5c5cc8.jpg
The external frame is typically made from aluminum, other lightweight metal alloy, and recently reinforced synthetic polymers or plastic and is equipped with a system of straps and tautly-stretched netting which prevents contact between the metal frame and user's back. In addition to comfort, this "stand-off" provides the additional benefit of creating air circulation between the frame and the wearer's back. For this reason, external frame packs are generally considered to be a "cooler load" than internal frame designs. External frame packs have a fabric "sack" portion which is usually smaller than that of internal frame packs, but have exposed frame portions above and below the sack to accommodate attachment of larger items. In addition, the sack can often be removed entirely, permitting the user to customize the configuration of their load, or to transport a non-conventional load such as a quartered game animal. Military packs are often external frame designs due to their ability to carry loads of different shapes, sizes and weights. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/f7/61/be/f761be5dba7e9ae0fb33a6c90a693997.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/98/68/18/98681863441d4f190fcf5e2b8a4e403a.jpg

A bodypack is a backpack fitted with one or more pockets that are suspended on the wearer's chest and loaded in such a way that the load in the front and the load in the back are close to equal. The majority of the load in a bodypack is carried by the hips. The ideal load carrying system should not disturb the wearer's natural posture, balance and maneuverability. The load must be dispersed onto the skeletal structure in an even manner, and should not produce unbalanced forces on the body.

Backpacks in general fall into one of four categories: frameless, external frame, internal frame, and bodypack. A pack frame, when present, serves to support the pack and distribute the weight of its contents across the body more appropriately, by transferring much of the weight to the hips and legs. Most of the weight is therefore taken off the shoulders, reducing the chance of injury from shoulder strap pressure (many backpacks equipped solely with shoulder straps can affect the posture of a person carrying more than 14 kg (30 lbs)), as well as being less restrictive of the upper body range of motion. Most backpacks are capable of being closed with either a buckle mechanism, a zipper, or a dry-bag type closure, though a few models use a drawstring fitted with a cord lock for the main compartment. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/82/6e/29/826e2948754435ef4be0877652b539d7--bloody-mary-big-picture.jpg
