Is size everything?

A QUESTION OF PREFERENCE

It’s a question that we hear all too often in the HBB office, but if you’re sensible the size of your bag REALLY DOES MATTER!

We live in a world where bigger is always seen as better. From some of our most famous landmarks, to the world’s biggest (insert any food item here)! This isn’t always the case. What’s more important is ratio. Someone who is taller, won’t always have the strength of someone shorter. And of course looking at the following chart it is very clear to see that the Marmoset is clearly the most intelligent creature alive…

WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE US?

We have all seen people lugging around enormous satchels, straining under the huge weight of an overladen bag you could fit your whole family in. More often than not, these bags are not even full, and can cause long term damage due to the weight imbalance.

Here at HBB we like to suggest to our customers that you really think about the size of bag that is right for your body – after all it is something that you carry around every day so it really is important it doesn’t injure you!

SO WHAT SIZE DO YOU BUY?

All our Healthy Back Bags are carefully designed and tested to work with a range of body types and sizes. Starting from our 1 litre capacity Small Bagletts, right up to our 20 litre Big Bags, there is a size out there for everyone.
