InventHelp Invention Alleviates the Weight of Heavy Backpacks (BTM-2426)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Pac Kaddy, to applicable companies for their consideration.

An avid backpacker needs to bring along a lot of gear to accommodate a trek in the outdoors, but a well-equipped pack can weigh 40 to 50 pounds - or more. An infantry soldier has to endure a pack of up to 100 pounds. Also, parents who use backpack-style baby carriers also put their backs at risk for strain and injury. "In order to solve these problems, I decided to develop something that alleviates the weight of loads carried on people’s backs," said an inventor from New Market, Md.

The patent-pending PAC KADDY makes carrying heavy backpacks easier. It also eases the carrying of babies via backpack-style carriers. As a result, it helps prevent fatigue and back strain and/or injury, as well as promotes comfort and enjoyment. Ergonomic, durable, versatile, easy to use and ideal for hikers, backpackers and parents of babies, the invention distributes load weight more evenly.

The original design was submitted to the Baltimore office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
