Kids think it’s “cool” to strap on their backpacks and head out to school. But if they don’t know how to choose, load, lift and wear a pack properly – these all-important accessories can be a pain in the back. Adults aren't exempt from this issue either, sports bags and heavy purses/brief cases can become a pain as well.
