Worn like a backpack, this is the lightweight vacuum that turns a physically demanding chore into an activity that's as effortless as walking. Unlike traditional canister vacuums that are heavy and awkward to maneuver around floors and furniture, the backpack vacuum's compact 7 1/2-pound canister stays flush against the user's body, providing optimal mobility to slip into tight corners and access all spaces that need cleaning. Soft padding provides extra cushioning on the back and adjustable shoulder straps, while the unit's power button is conveniently located on the hose, eliminating the need to stoop to reach a switch. The powerful 800-watt motor suctions dust and debris, while the HEPA filter removes allergens. Includes six cleaning tools, two extension wands, mesh storage bag for accessories, and disposable paper and reusable fabric bags. Plugs into AC with 21' cord. 16" H x 8" W x 8" D. (7 1/2 lbs.)

from Amesbury, MA
Just perfect for my small space with stairs and wooden floors. I've only had it for 2 weeks, but now I look forward to vacuuming. The best treat I could give myself!
Better than dragging along the floor.
from Chicago, IL.
Its an excellent vacuum cleaner, especially for people of smaller statures. I am over 6 foot and over 250 lbs with a fullback/linebacker body type. The only bad thing was that sometimes with this vacuum on my back, I would turn and hit the wall behind me, depending on the space. Other than that, it was fine.
This takes the chore out of vacuuming!
from Allen Park, MI
This vacuum makes vacuuming so easy! The cord is very long but I still get surprised when I am stopped by the limitation because I forget that I am attached to anything. It makes the job so convenient and easy to move furniture, reach high places, and hard to get places. Stairs are so easy! The suction is surprisingly good and the attachments are perfect.

I No Longer Hate Vacuuming
from Tucson, AZ
I use this in every way a vacuum can be used. It has great suction but I can still vacuum my throw carpets without the machine sucking them in. I hated vacuuming more than any other part of house cleaning and finally realized that I needed to find something I could carry on my back. Everything I saw was commercial and then I stumbled upon the HS-sold vacuum and knew it was exactly what I had been looking for. You cannot imagine the sense of freedom and ease you feel when using this product. I wish I had all the money I had wasted over the years trying to find a vacuum that did the job and was easy to use. This vacuum is worth every cent and more. I truly no longer hate vacuuming.

A good product
from North Carolina
Very light weight. It could use a more powerful motor. It could be a canister rather than have a bag. The power cord could be a little longer and the handle could be a little sturdier. The cord wrap would be better if one side would turn so that one would not have to unwrap the cord from the pegs. It is a relatively good vacuum especially for the price, it is just a little flimsy feeling when i am using it.

Tried a commercial unit but it was just too heavy and unwieldy. This unit is a nice size and works well.

I would not buy this
from Edmonton, Canada
This product fell short of your usual high quality. The convenience initially looked great but didn't compensate for the product's shortcomings.
