Beauty and balance are at the core of The Healthy Back Bag brand and all our bags are designed to look good and feel good. The Healthy Back Bag is renowned for its unique, cross-body tear-drop shape specifically designed to contour to the spine which promotes a healthy weight distribution across the back. We make bags that perfectly combine fashion and function, comfort and style. They come in hundreds of different colours and fabrics, they’re hardwearing, and are packed with intelligent pockets that help spread weight around the bag which can be worn 4 ways; on either shoulder or cross body. Because everyone deserves balance in their life.
What is a Healthy Back Bag?
Perfect for active lifestyles, Healthy Back Bags are designed to distribute weight asymmetrically, meaning they are comfortable for people of all shapes and sizes. The unique teardrop shape is specifically designed to contour to the spine and so reduce the stress on neck and shoulders. Available in hundreds of different colours and fabrics, they’re hardwearing, stylish, packed with intelligent pockets that help organize your belongings and spread weight around the bag sensibly, and can be worn 4 ways; on either shoulder or cross body with the main zip always against the back leaving your hands free and making the bag secure and accessible only by you.
The Healthy Back Bag was launched in the USA, the design was patented in 1994, and the bag winged its way across the Atlantic in 2003. Since then the brand has gone from strength to strength and the Healthy Back Bag is now sold worldwide. These beautiful bags are the result of a collaboration between a bag designer, doctor and chiropractor; a meeting of minds that has produced a unique and incredibly versatile bag. They were created to combat the problems that can be caused by a one strap bag, be kind to the spine, and, of course, look fab and are designed to distribute weight asymmetrically, meaning they are comfortable for people of all shapes and sizes, and perfect for healthy, active lifestyles. Men and women alike now have a fashionable alternative to a backpack or single strap bag.
They come in hundreds of different colours and fabrics, they’re hardwearing, stylish and can be worn any one of 4 ways; on either shoulder or cross body. Healthy Back Bags are packed with cleverly thought-out pockets for phones, pens, keys, documents, water bottles and cosmetics which deliver hidden functionality, help organise your belongings and spread weight around the bag sensibly providing the wearer with their own personal piece of organised luxury while the signature silver lining ensures stress-free rummaging.
They make perfect travel companions and keep your possessions safe and secure – the design makes it difficult for anyone to get to the contents. Healthy Back Bags have a full-length double zip which is always against the back so whichever way the bag is worn you can access the contents without removing the bag.
All Healthy Back Bags are durable: the fabric is carefully selected to ensure they will stand the test of time and all types of weather: all fabrics are treated to be water resistant and are resistant to general wear and tear. With two seasonal collections every year along with trend-led designer collaborations, these bags not only feel good but they look good too. On-trend colours, patterns and fabrics mean they coordinate perfectly with seasonal trends and you’ll soon find that one is not enough!

Who created The Healthy Back Bag?
When Margery and Irwin Gaffin set themselves the challenge in the early 1990’s of creating a bag which was comfortable to wear and actively good for your back, they stumbled across a unique idea. ‘I wanted a bag which looked good but also worked with my back rather than against it’, explains Margery of her dream.
As a leather craftsman and designer, Irwin set about creating a teardrop-shaped bag with no rigid elements which enabled it to curve to the spine and after collaborating with health professionals, The Healthy Back Bag was born.
In 2004 Priscilla Chase set up the UK and International business and Healthy Back Bags now sell in over 27 countries worldwide.
