But first, let's quickly recap its history, then get to that.
A Brief History of Backpacks—
The first-ever use of a backpack was traced back to the Copper Age. The mummy of an early man, named Otzi the iceman, was discovered by a group of hikers at Val Senales Valley in Italy in September of 1991. But before this discovery, 'Bindle' was created in 1870 from sticks and canvas clothes. It was used during the American war by soldiers but proved to be more of a burden. Then fast forward to 1877, Henry Miriam developed a 'knapsack' for the U.S. Military. His design was very similar to the current style of backpacks we see everywhere— two straps for the arms and the body made out of a metal sheet. From then on, backpacks began to develop in design and material-wise too.
