What is a backpack, and why do you need one?

The Backpack — also called bookbagknapsackpacksackpack, or bergen — is, in its simplest form, a cloth sack carried on one’s back and secured with two straps that go over the shoulders, but there can be exceptions. Lightweight types of backpacks are sometimes worn on only one shoulder strap.

Backpacks are commonly used by hikers and students, and are often preferred to handbags for carrying heavy loads or carrying any sort of equipment, because of the limited capacity to carry heavy weights for long periods of time in the hands.

Why do you need a backpack?  Athletes need somewhere to store all the equipment needed to play their game.  Take for example boys lacrosse…do you know how many pieces of equipment must be worn by a single player in a single game?  NINE!  Nine different things that could easily be left at home.  Not such a big deal when you’re playing at home, but a MUCH larger issue when you’re at an AWAY field!  We’ve all been there…looking for a sporting goods store minutes before a game starts!

Enter The Backpack…one bag that can hold it all!  And UnRuly Sports can customize a backpack just for your team or your league!  A place for everything and everything in it’s place.
