Do You Belong To The Backpack Brigade?

For a few years now, l have noticed a lot of people in and around our age group sport backpacks.

I just wondered what do they keep in them?
Arenít they frightened of being robbed if they are unwittingly unzipped from behind?
They must get heavy and be a strain on their back?

Do you have a backpack?

I have an icepack in the freezer ready for back strain or any other place in need of a cold compress, but no, no backpack in our house.

No back pack for me. I have cargo shorts which carry my worldly possessions.
But both my daughters have them. They donít seem to be worried about being robbed.
I donít worry about being robbed either, no bodies going to steal my shorts

Re: Do You Belong To The Backpack Brigade?

No, The only time I carry that sort of thing is when I'm going to the pool. It has a shoulder strap but it's a Sports Bag. It contains my towels, swimmie, talc shampoo ect. Phone and purse are left in cars glove box. I used to have a duffle bag for my swimming things a long time ago, the Back Pack kind of replaced them I believe. I do see people using them at the pool though.

I have a backpack for when I go hiking. It contains the usual stuff found in handbag - purse, phone etc plus waterproof clothing & bottle of water.

I also use a backpack when I take the grandchildren out. It pays to have both hands free.

Backpacks and those fold up plastic boxes on wheels and with a handle to pull them, were conspicuous by their numbers at Tatton Park RHS Show yesterday

I use a backpack when I go shopping. I walk with a stick using my right hand and I find that I cannot comfortably carry my shopping with my left hand. It makes me feel unbalanced. I place the things in my backpack and carry them on my shoulders. That even out the weight.

I use a backpack because holding a bag makes my hands sore (I have rheumatoid arthritis).

Me too - and for going to the gym - wouldn't be seen with one elsewhere
