ergobag: Ergonomic School Bag for Primary School

Smiley face
Advanced backpack technology in high performance mountaineering gear allows mountaineers to carry heavy loads in unfriendly environments for long hiking trips. Imagine applying the same technology to build the perfect school bag to protect your child’s back.

ergobag incorporates the latest innovation from Germany in trekking backpacks technology with all the practical details expected in the perfect school bag.

ergobag sits comfortably tight on the body:  The padded waist strap hugs the hips and can be optimally adjusted even to children of a slight build. Much of the weight is shifted from the shoulders to the more stable and stronger hip area, reducing the stress on the shoulder muscles and the spine. The adjustable chest strap is comfortable and prevents the bag from swinging sideways when energetic children rush home after school.

ergobag is the winner of the prestigious Red Dot Best Design Award 2011.






ergobag combines the principle of innovative trekking backpacks with everything required of a school bag. All ergobag school backpacks incorporate the principle of optimal load distribution, commonly applied in gears for professional hikers.

The school backpack sits comfortably tight on the body. The back panel (5) is stabilized by two ergonomic aluminum rails. It is adjustable to the back S-curve (4) of the student. The waist flaps are secured at the hip and helps to take the strain off the back and to shift the weight from the upper body to the legs.

The chest strap (3) is also adjustable to the height of the student. It helps position the shoulder straps comfortably.

Customizable to the individual: the ergobag adjusts to the child’s height up to 145 cm, while the satch is adjustable up to 180 cm.
