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] https://i.pinimg.com/236x/f2/81/41/f28141bfddc4735c9fdad4210c76c5ae--thirty-one--thirty-one-bags.jpg
Backpacks are a standard part of the load-bearing equipment of soldiers, especially infantry, in most countries, and military-style packs are regularly available to civilians in military surplus stores. Well-known examples include the United States ALICE field pack and the British Army PLCE rucksack attachment, both of which are widely available to civilian markets both as actual military surplus (new or used) and as replicas. Such packs are often, though not always (e.g. the USMC's ILBE pack), external-frame packs, with the pack itself lashed or pinned to a metal or plastic carrying frame. For units that are entering combat situations, packs may be loaded heavily and can weigh in excess of 100 lbs. Each soldier may carry extra weapons, ammunition, rations, medical supplies, tents or other shelter material, and extra clothing. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/e0/69/c2/e069c2bae1e41fe7433b70af16d6b7cb.jpg

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.
A daypack is a smaller, frameless backpack that can hold enough contents for a day hike, or a day's worth of other activities. They are not large enough for average wilderness backpacking that use full-sized sleeping bags and backpacking tents, but may be large enough for ultralight backpacking. Padded or unpadded waist straps may be provided to distribute weight across the body.

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/280x280_RS/f9/dd/e7/f9dde7ca4a1563ad49d2a13e964951ee.jpg

“We’re honored to be involved with World Vision for the fifth year in a row,” said Wendy Bradshaw, Executive Director of Community Affairs at Thirty-One Gifts. “We’ve been very pleased to see our products used to assist people who are in need around the world – whether it’s survivors of a natural disaster, refugees, or children in poverty. It’s our pleasure to help more individuals and families in need everywhere through our donation match. We are hopeful many people will double their donation through this match on Giving Tuesday.” https://i.pinimg.com/originals/03/28/be/0328bea4e3ca58149d95008747900974.jpg

In addition to their use in outdoors pursuits, backpacks are sometimes used in other sports as well. Hydration packs, sometimes used by athletes and military personnel, carry water (in either a bladder or a rigid bottle) and have a tube connected to them from which the wearer can drink without removing the pack; this feature is also included in some more general-purpose hiking backpacks. Backpacks that carry skateboards have also become more popular in the youth culture. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/d8/32/f8/d832f81e7862eb58f2a9e9a78c0182f0--bible-journal-hillbilly.jpg
The last item I received was the Key Fob. It makes it easy to just ‘throw’ my keys into my bag. It has a round key ring on one end and a clip on the other. I carry mine clipped to each other (the clip is clipped to the ring) to form a ‘bracelet’ to slip on my wrist if needed or to clip to my purse. My husband and I switch vehicles often, so it also makes it a lot easier to remove or attach the car or house keys.
The internal frame backpack is a recent innovation, invented in 1967 by Greg Lowe, who went on to found Lowe Alpine and Lowepro, companies specializing in backpacks and other forms of carrying bags for various equipment.[8] An internal-frame pack has a large fabric section around an internal frame composed of strips of either aluminum, titanium or plastic, sometimes with additional metal stays to reinforce the frame. A complex series of straps works with the frame to distribute the weight and hold it in place. The internal frame permits the pack to fit closely to the wearer's back and minimizes shifting of the load, which is desirable when participating in activities that involve upper-body movement such as scrambling over rocky surfaces and skiing. However, the tight fit reduces ventilation, so these type of packs tend to be more sweaty than external frame packs. The internal construction also allows for a large storage compartment; a few lash points (including webbing loops and straps for sleeping bags and other large items) may be present, but as the frame is completely integrated, it is difficult to securely lash larger and heavier items which do not fit inside the compartment to the outside of the pack. Internal frame packs originally suffered from smaller load capacity and less comfortable fit during steady walking, but newer models have improved greatly in these respects. In addition, because of their snug fit, the improved internal frame models have largely replaced external frame backpacks for many activities. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/d4/cd/fc/d4cdfc445681970cc46d2ce9e6d672fd.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. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/b1/2d/12/b12d12c86b9b97c78ad722508d1cd2bd.jpg?b
