Travel Backpacks We Love


A good travel backpack is like a favorite pair of jeans—it never goes out of style, pairs with almost everything, and is comfortable when it matters most. It’s versatile enough to handle your needs, and basic enough to take anywhere and everywhere.

You don’t need to trek through the wilderness or across entire continents to be a backpack person—maybe rolling a suitcase through a crowded terminal just isn’t your forte. (Though if it is, there are wheeled backpacks for the best of both worlds.) From stylishly minimal options to packs with every imaginable bell and whistle, here are travel packs that any backpack person will fall head-over-heels for.
