The Rebel Backpack is a futuristic book bag designed to make life safer and easier for students. The bag is made with several unique and ergonomic features to make carrying a bag full of books easy on young bodies.

Backpacks are commonly overloaded with more weight than their wearer can handle, which can lead to health problems, especially among young students. The Rebel Backpack is designed to redirect the weight of books away from the back and onto the hips. It also has an ingenious indicator mounted on the shoulder straps that tells the wearer when their load has exceeded the recommended threshold of 10% of their body weight. Students would be wise to check out this design now to avoid back problems in the future.
