Made of Sturdy Water Resistant Canvas and lined with a soft liner, this Backpack has a secure place for your batteries and controller. The Back and bottom are lined with shock absorbing foam to protect your equipment.
Heavy duty zippers come apart at the bottom on both sides to allow your driveline to exit the backpack. Accommodates either side driveline. Zippers are covered all the way around to protect against rain.

This product was suggested and subsequently tested by LVAD people. One customer noted that she could even ride in the car comfortably with this on her back. The foam liner, pads the back so you don’t feel the LVAD. The slim 3” depth is hardly noticeable and fits with your body to reduce fatigue. The whole profile is only 10” wide by 13” tall.

We will be stocking 2 versions to accommodate either the HeartMate or HeartWare brand LVAD’s. Please be careful to check the correct version when ordering. Please note this item is water resistant, not water proof.
Do not use as a shower bag, bathing, or swimming. It is not water proof.

Concerned that the exposed driveline could catch on something. OTherwise looks good.

Hi John, the driveline is exposed a little when using the backpack for your LVAD in use. It was originally designed for carrying the spare equipment, but many people started using it for their “active” LVAD. Please check out the vests which hold everything inside, or the shirts which are meant to be worn as a undershirt and hold everything.
