AIRBAC BACKPACK REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY
Retail Value $90
Did you know that Backpacks are the one of the most frequently purchased products when starting back to school, but it is also the one product that does not get the thought and attention needed when making the purchase. Most kids just think about the “look” of the backpack without giving much thought to the comfort or how well made the backpack actually is. This is sad because a lot of harm is being done to our kids with the heavy loads they have to carry these days. The Mayo Clinic and other hospitals around the United States calculate that over packed or improperly packed school backpacks account for more than 7,000 emergency room visits annually. And according to the American Occupational Therapy Association, over 50 percent of all students between the ages of 9 and 20 suffer from chronic back pain related to the way they wear their backpacks.These are scary statistics and certainly something that parents should be thinking about when making a backpack purchase.
Now I know this is the Summer Stolstice Giveaway Hop and you are probably wondering why I would put a Back to School product in this giveaway hop, so here’s why: #1 – It’s never too early to start thinking about a major purchase (which a backpack is) and #2 Kids can use backpacks at summer camp, the pool, the beach, hiking, traveling and lots of other summer activities!
I was given the chance to review the newest line in the Airbac Backpack Family “The Cheer Line”. I chose to review the Glitter Bag in Pink because I am going to give it to my granddaughter for her birthday at the end of this month….and “WOW” is she going to love it!!! Not because it’s made well and not because it is going to promote better posture and spinal alignment, but because it is CUTE!! (It’s me, her grammy, that cares about those other things!)
So, you are probably wondering “What is an Airbac Backpack?” Well, here is a little background for you:
An Airbac Backpack Feels Like You’re Carrying Half The Weight – The AIRBAC™ patented air support system allows the weight in the backpack to rest comfortably just above the waistline, to literally take the weight off your back and shoulders. You’ll feel the difference immediately!
Promotes Better Posture and Spinal Alignment – AIRBAC™ technology enables your body to relax in an upright position (as opposed to a hunched over position to compensate for the extra weight). That’s why AIRBAC™ is endorsed by back specialists nationwide.
Built-In Shock Absorbers – The weight of every step you take— running or walking—is absorbed by AIRBAC™ instead of your back, thanks to our patented air support system.
Easily adjusts to fit any body type – Whether you’re young or old, tall or short, slim or have more to love – the AIRBAC™padded shoulder straps andpatented air support system adjust to a customized fit.
Outstanding Air-Cushioned Protection – The same patented AIRBAC™ technology that protects your back, protects the contents of your AIRBAC™ too.

Here are some of the features that I love about the Airbac Glitter Backpack:
Of course I love the awesome pink glitter color of the backpack!! It is pretty and any girl (young or old) would be proud to wear this on their back!
This is the back of the backpack that shows the Air Support System that is at the lower back of the backpack. It sits against your back like a soft pillow and takes the weight off of your upper back and shoulders. It feels good, too!It is made so that you can put more air in it if needed.
The straps are wide and adjustable. They are also padded with extra thick padding for comfort.
I love the fact that the Airbac Backpack has a magnetic closure on the front instead of an annoying zipper that can break or get stuck.
Once opened the backpack has a an adjustable toggle cinch drawstring to expand your backpack. It is really roomy inside and it also has an extra elastic pull out compartment inside.
There is a zippered pouch on the front of the backpack that is super soft inside. It would be a great place to carry lunch money, or anything that you need to find quickly. The zipper has a cute little heart on it.
Now here is what my granddaughter is going to love! It has a pocket on each side that is adorned with a little bling bling! There is also a little clip at the top of the bag to hang fun little whatnots!
I am so excited to give this Airbac Backpack to my granddaughter. Not only because it is trendy and she is going to love it but because it is a great investment and will last her for years to come. Not to mention the fact that it is going to be much easier for her to carry around all of her books and supplies without straining her back! She is going to be so excited about her first day of school!
