Satch – The School Backpack for Teens

Stirs up a real storm.

The school backpack literally takes the weight off school kids’ shoulders:  the ergonomic principle shifts the weight to the more stable waist area. The ergobag ergonomic principle favors optimal load distribution, a principle used by professional hikers for years. The backpack is stabilized by two ergonomic aluminum rails. Our comfortably padded waist strap takes the strain off the back.

The back panel can be adjusted to the kid’s height, up to 180cm. The adjustable chest strap makes carrying the pack even more comfortable. Stabilizer straps on the sides of the backpack compress the weight and bring it closer to the back, which reduces the leverage effect and makes carrying the backpack easier.

Functional & visible? Of course!

It has earned an A for functionality, as well. The reinforced bottom makes the satch extraordinarily sturdy. The intelligent interior organization helps even the most chaotic kids  keep their things in order: Two large main compartments, including one for books, hold school supplies, folders and notebook. The organizer compartment in the front pocket offers optimal functionality with two zippered compartments, pen holders and a lanyard. The light color of the lining helps keep an overview of the contents. Sporting a cell phone pocket with a headphone outlet accessible from inside and skateboard clips on the front pocket, the satch offers everything that today’s sophisticated kids wish for.


Satch is the winner of the prestigious Red Dot Best Design Award 2013.

Below is a product video for Satch. Unfortunately, we do not currently have the English version.


Our star backpacks combine the principle of innovative trekking backpacks with everything required of a school bag.

All ergobag school backpacks follow the principle of optimal load distribution, a principle used by professional hikers for years. 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 length (4) of the student. The waist flaps stay where they belong: at the waist. This is important in order to take the strain off the back and to shift the weight.

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.
