According to him, your correct frame size can be found by measuring your torso from the seventh vertebra down the spine to the point in the small of your back which is horizontally level with the top of your hip bones. To find this point, use your fingers to trace the hip bone upwards till you feel the point where the top edge of your hip bones curve inwards, on the side of the hip, creating something of a shelf. This measurement is the torso length, especially useful to consider those packs with non-adjustable back system. In fact this system that is used throughout the outdoor industry today to measure the exact body size and to determine the correct frame's size.
If my three hours was any indication, buying a good backpack is not an easy task. With hundreds of backpack manufacturers and styles, it can understandably be overwhelming. Whatever you do, don't go cheap. You'll be doing yourself a disservice and end up buying a new one anyways. A good backpack is an investment. You needn't spend $500 on a backpack, but be wary of cheap, no-frills, run of the mill $70 brands, as you'll regret the design flaws and absence of extras. Spend a little more for a good backpack from a trusted brand, and it will be your companion for many trips to come. The Osprey pack I eventually settled on has traveled with me from the U.S to the Middle East for 10 awesome years and I know it has another good 10 years to go.
Make sure your backpack comes with several compartments for pencils, and assorted small items so they can be easily found and replaced as they are used. These compartments not only help your child stay organized but they also pad the sharpness of these items in the backpack.
Teachers also very much appreciate students having these backpacks as they are necessary to having a secure means of transporting the teacher's and parent's communications as well as the child's work to and from school. Backpacks are useful in keeping all items safe and together such as keeping books and papers from getting wet or damaged to and from school. Disney back packs do this really well and do it in style.
Another thing to consider is something many tend to overlook: comfort! There is no shame in being as comfortable as you can when backpacking. In fact, comfort can increase the level of enjoyment when hiking the great outdoors. Before purchasing your backpack, make sure to try on several different styles. Don't limit yourself to a particular backpack simply on the basis of what others say. Keep in mind: you will most likely be wearing your backpack for long periods of time. This being the case, it is vital that you choose just the right backpack that will be the most comfortable and still designed to carry all the gear you will need for the trip.
The human spine is made up of 33 bones called vertebrae, and between the vertebrae are discs that act as shock absorbers. When something heavy-such as a backpack filled with books-is incorrectly placed on your child's shoulders, the force of that extra weight can pull your child backwards. To compensate, your child may bend forward at the hips or arch his or her back, which can cause your child's spine to compress unnaturally. Because of the heavy weight he or she is carrying, your child might begin to develop shoulder, neck, and back pain.
