Allied Health of Wisconsin, Society of Chiropractors says:
"Allied Health Chiropractic Centers evaluated a wide range of backpacks and recommends the Tough Traveler Super Padre for their Wellness Program to Prevent Back Injury.  All backpacks were reviewed and rated for shoulder, chest and hip strap adjustability, padding/contact surface with the back, ergonomic design, ability to distribute weight efficiently, use of compression strap, and quality of materials."

"I received my Super Padre size Small yesterday, and after trying on over 50 packs at several store, THIS ONE fits!!! I can't believe it; I expected to say yet another 'Oh well...'. I carried some weight around in it today, and didn't even want to take it off! And when I did it was with great fondness that I set it down. I haven't worn a pack for 30 years.... I am so pleased to once again be able to use one..... I love it and thank you so much for your concern for the health of those of us who wear these things!!!" Kathleen DeCelle

"I own 2 Super Padres, 1 large size and 1 medium, and use them for travel - both for business and for leisure. The large holds enough for a 2-week vacation, while still being a manageable weight. The medium easily carries all I need for 1 or 2 day business trips.... For me, the Super Padre defines independent travel!" epinions.com product review

"It's awesome...and now...my books aren't so heavy." Jesse Spielman, age 11
