The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has endorsed nine backpacks and daypacks from The North Face®. The Big Shot, Borealis, Box Shot, Cornice, Hotshot, On Sight, Recon, Surge and Yavapai are the endorsed styles.
Assessed by a panel of doctors of chiropractic, the panel found that The North Face® packs offer benefits including:
- Injection molded shoulder straps – creating innovative flex points to alleviate clavicle (collarbone) and pressure point strain
- Anatomically correct shoulder straps – constructed in a shape specifically suited for males or females
- Back panels with improved fit – featuring a recessed channel designed to take pressure off the spine and a more comfortable fabrication for load-bearing activities
- Updated interior organization – providing ample pockets and dividers for storing and organizing the necessities of school, work and play
