Title: FRAME FOR A BACKPACK
Abstract:
A frame (10, 100, 200) for a backpack comprising an upper strut (12), a lower strut (14) and sides (16a, 16b). The area defined by the upper strut (12), lower strut (14) and sides (16a, 16b) is of size and shape so as to allow a bulletproof vest containing a back ballistics plate to be received tightly therein. Preferably, the frame (10, 100, 200) has an internal contour matching the profile of an intended wearer's back. To achieve this the internal contour of the frame (10, 100, 200) incorporates one or more of the following features: an inflection (136) in the lower strut (14) to accommodate muscle development either side of a wearer's spine; curvature in the upper strut (12); curvature in the sides (16a, 16b).
