The Healthy Back Bag® is born.
Although AmeriBag was conceived in 1987, it took an unfortunate accident to propel it to its current success. Margery, a Special Education Teacher, had endured a painful back injury and surgery from a rollerskating fall, and she could not find a bag that she could comfortably carry. With the help of a chiropractor and surgeon, the Gaffins embarked upon the task of creating a bag that could be worn comfortably by almost anyone. The Healthy Back Bag® tote was born.
The principal of the Healthy Back Bag® tote is simple: by hanging asymmetrically and distributing weight along the entire length of the back rather than on one pressure point on the shoulder, the bag feels lighter. The more points on the body a bag touches, the more comfortable it is. And multiple interior and exterior pockets keep the weight distributed evenly throughout the bag. Since its inception, this innovated design has helped millions of people worldwide enjoy its exceptional comfort. This unique design concept received a US Design Patent in 1995 and in 2006 AmeriBag received an unprecedented registered trademark for the bag’s unique shape.
