A tote bag designed in Japan and created using biomechanics that can reduce the burden on your body

KRONGTHIP Inc.

2022.4.1

Does your bag move around a lot while wearing it?

Dalton 3 implemented a way to stop that.


(Evaluation test charge: Tokyo Institute of Technology, Faculty of Environmental and Social Sciences and Engineering, Associate Professor Maruyama)


The bag moving around while you walk is suppressed by fixing it to your back using an upper strap.


The patented strap makes it easy to secure the bag to your body




The combined force of the load on the shoulders while standing and walking is reduced by fixing it to the back using the shoulder straps. The analysis demonstrated that it reduced shoulder stress by up to 41%.  (For M size)

*Depends on the individual


Using a strap on the tote bag and fixing it to your back will distribute the load better rather than not using one.

At the Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan, we measured the interlocking of the subject and the bag using a motion capturing system and a small 3-axis force sensor.

By suppressing the movement of the bag while walking, it approaches a more natural walking state and drastically reduces various stressors that occur on the body when walking with a normal tote bag.
 



The conventional tote bag has the disadvantage that the handle easily slips off the shoulder. By using a strap on the tote bag, the bag can be fixed to the body, eliminating the extra stress and hassle of slipping off.



Developed by conducting numerous evaluation tests at the Department of Biodynamics, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan


Faculty of Environmental and Social Sciences and Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology   Associate Professor Maruyama

It is a completely new tote bag that took over 10 years to create by using Newton's physics and the wisdom of the Tokyo Institute of Technology.
               From the evaluation test data:

1 | Reducing the load on the shoulder

2 | Suppression of bag movement

3 | Correct walking and stride

The ideal structure was developed based on the above three parts of the evaluation test data. The patented strap secures the bag to your body, greatly reducing physical stress caused by unwanted movement and sliding.

Patented countries: USA, Taiwan, Japan and 6 other countries


When riding a bicycle or motorcycle

  • Fixed to the body
  • Reduced movement

The bag is fixed to your body so the bag does not move around making it safe for you to ride without losing your balance.

For outdoor events like music festivals

  • Fixed to the body
  • Security

It’s fixed to you which ensures extra security. Recommended for outdoor activities where you need a bag.

For travel

  • Reducing the load on your shoulder
  • Convenient Side Approach Pocket

You can take out things from the tote bag without having to take it off your shoulder, which is convenient at airports and while shopping.

For school

  • Reducing the load on your shoulder

Recommended for students who carry heavy supplies like PCs and textbooks.

For family outings and shopping

  • Fixed to the body
  • Convenient pockets

Since both hands are free, you can hold your child’s hand or walk your dog without any hassle.

For work

  • Reducing the load on your shoulder
  • Convenient pockets

Recommended for those who often carry a lot of items for work.

We ordered various parts and materials from all over the world, made countless prototypes, and completed the tote bag with extreme attention to detail.



Inside are two convenient pockets ① a zipper pocket ② an open pocket.

Uses genuine leather (premium leather) that has a luxurious feel and can be enjoyed over time. It ages beautifully giving you another feature to enjoy.

① Equipped with waterproof fastener

The zipper on the front of the tote bag is waterproof. It also protects it from sudden rain submersion, so you don't have to worry about theft or falling things. You can also open and close it from either side with the W slider!

② Convenient Side Approach Pocket

Equipped with side pockets that allow you to access the main compartment while the tote bag is fixed on you. You can use it from either the left or right side!

③ Out of the 4 colors, 3 of them are new colors! 

④ The patented strap uses a magnetic buckle

ON - No force required, easy to put on and take off with one hand

OFF - Slide with one hand to remove!

① Strap position is adjustable

The strap can be adjusted to the chest and the position that suits you, which further reduces stress!

② Strap length is also adjustable

The strap is adjustable from 16.53 to 25.78 inches (42-65.4cm). Supporting up to a men’s 5XL.

The length changes just by pulling the belt and an easy lock.

③ Ensures breathability on the back

Even if it is firmly fixed with the strap, it is shaped so that a gap is created on your back. It has excellent breathability and is designed to prevent back sweating on your back even in summer!

④ Can be used on either the left or right shoulder


Other than black, there are 4 colors available:

navy, khaki, and red, which are limited to Kickstarter.

The trigger was the flooding of the factory due to heavy rainfall. On a summer night in 2011, a large typhoon struck mainly in the Kanto and Tohoku regions of Japan, and the warehouse we rented flooded due to a flooding of a nearby river.

The water level in the warehouse reached 70 cm/27.5”, and most of the items were flooded. Since we had to get the wet items out as soon as possible, when we arrived at the warehouse at 9 am the next morning, more than 90% of the products were completely submerged. To be honest, I was utterly stunned and speechless.

Most of the items submerged were shoes, towels, and clothes, and the boxes were so heavy due to absorbing so much water. But I decided to carry the soaking wet things out by myself. Since I did not have a dolly, I decided to pack as much wet and soaked products as I could into the tote bag I brought and carry it out of the warehouse.

For several hours I hung a heavy tote bag on one shoulder while carrying my things. I began to experience strong pain in my shoulders and lower back resulting in my body hurting and I couldn't move. While I was carrying it I would twist my body around to ease the pain a bit and eventually I found that it became a lot easier and less stressful carrying the tote bag once it was in the center of my back.

I attached the tote bag to my body using the PP band I found, which resulted in being extremely efficient and allowing me to carry everything out by 3 pm. This experience led me to wonder if I could make a tote bag that can be fixed to one’s body, which would be something people found useful and use every day. With the advice of Associate Professor Maruyama, who is in charge of biomechanics at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, we took about 10 years to complete the evaluation test. This is FIXTOTE's first memorable overseas expansion project!
