    Someone gave me a suggestion for a good ergonomic backpack, but I can't find it.

    I want one that will not cause my back to spasm, if possible. Probably an internal frame....

    Also, do they make hiker's backpacks for kids?

    Sherpas will go anywhere you do if you have enough money.

    They make more than me, so it's unlikely I do have enough money.

    Are they ergonomic? I hope they won't strain my shoulders and neck...
