Shoulder bags

Inflatable shoulder bag straps for backpacks/shoulder bags.

As an avid hiker and backpacker, I have often wondered why there is'nt an inflatable bag strap available on the market yet. A strap that inflates and attaches to the underneath of a backpack strap for added cushioning and comfort. Can you imagine how much comfort a wearer will derive from this pneumatic, shock absorbing cushion of air. Backpacks don't need to be redesigned, the straps can be bought as an add-on and attached to the underneath of any backpack/shoulder bag strap.

I've made a few working models and this stuff REALLY works.

Comments? Suggestions?

(?) Backpacks with Air-Filled Straps & Lumbar supports http://www.healthyc...catalogue.php?cat=4
Some examples of existing backpacks with inflated straps. Note, these are complete backpacks, however; Not the retrofittable add-on straps [CritiKill] describes. [jurist, Oct 05 2004]

Looks to me like the inflatable straps and supports on these bags could be removed and transferred to your backpack, bookbag, or shoulder bag. [jurist, Oct 05 2004]

       Good idea!

       The more expensive bags use softer cushioning, almost better than an inflatable cushion. I'll stay voteless, but to me it isn't exactly revolutionary.
