What is the Best Backpack to buy in the US?

So you want the best backpack or rucksack for your trip abroad? Well we’re here to help! To save you time, we’ve scoured the internet for the best brands and their top backpacks suitable for a backpacking trip.

Two of the types of questions I am asked regularly are “what’s the best backpack for Thailand?” and “what size backpack do I need for a two month trip?”

Whether you’re backpacking South East Asia or Australia the backpack can be the same. This rule also holds true for the length of a trip.

So what size backpack do I recommend? I recommend a backpack that’s around the 60 litre mark. Why do I recommend this? Well I own a 60 litre backpack with a 15 litre day pack attached and when it’s full it weighs around 20-25kg (depending what’s in it), which is the weight limit for a lot of airlines and round the world tickets. There is also the temptation to buy a smaller backpack for shorter trips but this would be a mistake. Firstly, just because you have a slightly bigger backpack it doesn’t mean you have to actually fill it. The other reason is; you might be doing a short trip this time but what about your next one? If this is your first backpacking trip you’re soon going to get the bug and want to go again. If you get yourself a 40 litre one now for a 4 week trip, what happens when you go on a 6 months trip next time? These backpacks last. Mine has been going 3 years now and going on another Gap Year with me. Make a solid investment just the once.
