Nesel Packs

Nesel Packs is a company founded on the belief that students with disabilities may have difficulty learning in the same way as other students, but they still deserve the opportunity to learn and grow nonetheless. We are aiming to change the world for students with sensory processing difficulties by providing tools to overcome barriers to succeed in life and school. This is why we created a backpack for students on the autism spectrum.

We sell a backpack designed for students with sensory processing difficulties. It has several features, such as clips on the straps to attach tools, specially designed straps to mimic a compression vest, a security strap, pouches on the inside to add weight, and an ID tag in the front to let your child customize the bag.
