How to choose the best travel backpack is the most important thing when traveling. Your destinations will change but your backpack will remain the same no matter where you go, whether it’s for a few weeks, a few months or a year.
Shopping for our travel backpack wasn’t easy… we ended up buying (and returning!) 7 backpacks in 2 months because they were not quite the right fit or didn’t have the features that we needed. We want to share our tips with you on how to choose the best travel backpack so that you don’t end up making the same mistakes we made when you shop for your bag.
In this video we go through some of the most important features to look out for when choosing a backpack; comfortable shoulder and hip straps, front-loading vs top loading, waterproof (or integrated rain cover), size (how many liters).
Here’s a helpful video by Lowe Alpine to help you fit your backpack:
