What are the best travel backpacks? This is a question that all travelers ask ourselves before embarking on a trip and although the choice seems easy, we assure you that since there are so many models, the choice of luggage for a new adventure, in which we need to carry little luggage and go light, it can be a headache.

That is why after many years traveling, during which we have been combining suitcases for longer trips and backpacks for shorter ones or those who will need to move a lot by public transport, we wanted to leave you with a selection of which are the best. options as well as some details to take into account before buying it.

To choose the best travel backpack, the first criterion on which we have based ourselves is comfort, taking into account that, above all, the weight is equally distributed and it grips the back well, so as not to suffer pain later. Other aspects that we have taken into account are that its interior organization is accessible and allows you to separate your belongings with different compartments, that it is waterproof, that it has a good quality/price ratio and finally that it has an attractive design. For your part, the choice of backpack will depend on the type of trip you want to do, since a backpack to travel Southeast Asia for 3 months is not the same as one for a few days getaway in which you will not even need to invoice it.
