This research studies the ergonomic aspect of military backpack design using virtual environment model. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the actual design of military backpack and determine the most ergonomic configuration which concerns on width of the backpack, height of the backpack, and maximum load that can be lifted by a soldier who was based on anthropometry Indonesian national army soldiers. Actual postures of military personnel are being observed and reconstructed on virtual environment using Jack software task analysis toolkits which are Low Back Analysis, Ovako Working Posture Analysis, and Rapid Upper Limb Assessment. The results of the research are the length and width of an ergonomic military backpack with the maximum weight that can be carried by a soldier-based anthropometry Indonesian national army soldiers.
