Backpack diaper bags are a great option for hiking, travel or for those who are concerned about their posture. It’s important to leave the house fully prepared for a full day of activity but an overly packed messenger style diaper bag can be hard on the shoulders.
With a backpack diaper bag the weight is evenly distributed between the shoulders which makes it much easier to carry a heavy load for longer periods of time and leads to better posture. Another benefit is that the bag won’t slip off your shoulder when you bend over the way a messenger style bag will.
One thing to consider, though, is that you will have to take off the backpack every time you want to access its contents. So, for quick access a messenger diaper bag wins. But for comfort and long-term wear, a lot can be said for investing in a backpack diaper bag.
