- Rated #3 in 7 Best Travel Backpacks
Construction: This backpack is made out of durable, water-resistant material. Though it weighs less than your average backpack (just 0.7 pounds), it's built to last while traveling, hiking, or camping. You'll find the material can keep your clothes dry in light rain showers, and the fabric will last for years of regular use.
The pack is designed to fold into its own zippered pocket, making it compact enough to fit in any carry-on suitcase. The breathable mesh shoulder straps offer enough padding for the bag to be comfortable when full. With its 35-liter size, you'll find you have more than sufficient space to pack for a day trip or even a weekend getaway.
Features: In addition to the two beautifully padded shoulder straps, the backpack comes with a chest strap that will help take the weight off your shoulders. It's comfortable enough to use for a hike or cycling trip, though it can sag a bit when full.
The main compartment, two side pockets, and two zippered front pockets give you all the space you need to store clothing, toiletries, electronics, and documents easily. The whistle buckle makes it easy to securely lock the pack.
Price: This is one of the cheapest backpacks on our list, but it doesn't sacrifice quality for low cost. It's a great little lightweight pack to take when you want to travel light for a day trip or a week away.
