The U.S. military has long history of purchasing products with the highest level of ergonomic design. Packaging Products pitched and won the contract to provide high-density foam for the shoulder straps and a weight-lifter style belt for the backpack worn by Marines and other divisions of the military.
Using 1.75# Urethane, we created a spring cushioning effect under the straps so that when the wearers are running, marching or walking, they are protected from shock or injury. For the waist belt, we used 3.1 EVA cross linked foam. As a result of the product’s ability to withstand friction, the shoulders and lower back areas are protected. Our product enables users to perform at a higher level for a longer period of time.
Packaging Products was able to deliver on the demand for ergonomics, performance and protection at a lower price than the previous supplier
