Backpack with air system

It is a backpack ,in which the traditional support system made of aluminum and eva foam, was replaced by an inflatable one. Thanks to this backpack is extremely light and after deflation can be rolled into a small package. The back of the backpack was equipped with 2 pairs of panels, which have separate inflating source. They are placed on different muscles, so you can give a rest to one of them by inflating and deflating panels. You are able to do that without taking off your backpack. The backpack is inflated by rapid inflation technology in just a few seconds and 1 or 2 breaths. With its weight around 450g it would be the lightest backpack
