**Personal Review:** Why I choose IMPACT Ergo-Comfort Spinal Protection school bag among the rest of the brands in the market? ( I did have a hard time determining between Deuter n Impact to be frank )
IMPACT is the ONLY multi-awarded ergonomic brand founded in Singapore since 1997, and also the only ergonomic brand medically endorsed and recommended by both the Singapore Physiotherapy Association & The Chiropractic Association (Singapore). IMPACT ergonomic products are widely distributed internationally, voted as most favourite ergonomic school bag and Best of the Best ergonomic products by reputable magazines, well trusted by many parents, schools and children for past 17 years.
Weight of the Backpack is VERY IMPORTANT in my opinion considering the size n frame of your precious. The bag itself must be as lightweight as possible cos if the backpack is heavy then when all the school books are in it it would be worse:(
This is the reason why I did not choose hard shelled backpack as they tend to be heavier in comparison.
I did not put trolley backpack in my consideration list at all cos of the weight and also is not feasible at all considering the kids have to walk up n down the stairs and I have seem far too many kids falling down as they lift their trolley backpack up the school bus:(
FYI, IMPACT do have hard shelled Ergo-Comfort Spinal Support Backpack & Detachable Trolley Backpack IP-382 too just that personally I prefer not to consider these ranges:)
Any support padding is important in my opinion too! In IMPACT Schoolbags, I love the wide padded backpack straps as it provides stress-free support to the shoulders. The chest stabilizer belt reduces swinging movement and distributes the load evenly.
The book divider with inner suspension straps in IMPACT Schoolbags is a BONUS too as it allows the kids to keep books and files neatly in the bag. The contents are held in a vertical position, and thus easy to be retrieved from the bag. The base is non-slip, firm and strong too!
Side pockets can be a REAL BONUS too as it is designed for water bottles and small accessories.
IMPACT bagpacks are also fitted with USA 3M Scotchlite reflective strips and logo to provide better safety at night and low light situation.
IMPACT School bags are of SUPERB QUALITY as they are made of durable, water and UV resistant materials.
IMPACT School bags has a good air breathable ventilation system!
IMPACT Backpacks professional Spinal Care Systems provides excellent support to the contour of the back while effectively distributing the weight equally on the surface of entire back. This encourages good posture at all times even when our precios is carrying a IMPACT ergonomic school bag!
All IMPACT bags comes with a warranty of 180 days from the date of purchase against manufacturing faults and defective parts.
