In today’s business environment, many people need to commute from one location to another with a heavy laptop. If the proper precautions aren’t taken, the result can be severe back pain, a pinched nerve or worse. Purchasing a backpack that will eliminate or reduce the stress of carrying heavy items can help you avoid the discomforts associated with carrying a heavy laptop.
Here are a few things to consider when purchasing a backpack to carry heavy laptops.
Make sure the backpack you purchase will fit the size of your laptop. Get the exact measurements of your laptop before you start shopping for a backpack.
When shopping for a backpack, make sure it has external handles. If you take public transportation, it may be necessary to remove the backpack to enter or exit a train, bus or subway. The external handles are very useful if you have to remove your backpack to squeeze into a crowded bus, train or subway car.
Look for laptops with adjustable straps. You want the laptop strapped to your back to be as comfortable as possible. Use these straps to make the appropriate adjustments, and if it still isn’t comfortable, continue shopping for another backpack.
If comfort is a problem, start looking for a reasonably priced ergonomic laptop backpack. These bags are designed with extra comfort in mind. If you have an old injury that could be aggravated by carrying heavy items, you may want to consider ergonomic backpacks only.
Try not to spend a lot of money on your backpack, even if it is ergonomic. You will be able to find a suitable backpack with all of these features in the price range of $25.00 to $60.00. If you pay more than this, you may be paying too much.
