Backpack is the most practical bag for everyday use. You can use it for school, work, traveling or during a day out. Backpacks have many advantages over most other bags, such as: comfort for the back, ample space, and a practical layout. But how do you know which backpack is right for you and which is the best to buy? In this blog we help you find the perfect backpack for you!

Which backpack is right for me?

If you haven’t found the perfect backpack yet, it’s important to be clear about what you’re looking for. What do you want to use the backpack for? Does the bag have to be from a certain brand? Do you just want a functional backpack or do you want one that looks good too? Once you’ve answered these questions yourself, you can look for more specifics. To help you with this, we provide some tips for finding your ideal backpack.

How to choose the right backpack?

Simply put: by choosing a backpack that fits your needs. If you’re looking for a backpack that you can take to work, you might want one with a laptop compartment. If you plan to travel by plane, then you especially want a backpack that fits all of your travel needs and that meets the size requirements of the airline. Maybe you want a combination of the two when you go on a business trip. Whatever your desire, there is a backpack to suit you and your desires.

What should you pay attention to when buying a backpack?

Backpacks come in all shapes and sizes. That’s why we totally understand that you might not know exactly what to look for when buying a backpack. When looking for a backpack, consider the following factors:

wearing comfort

One of the most important factors when buying a backpack is comfort. If a backpack doesn’t fit on your back, you probably won’t use it very often. Waste of money of course! Are you planning to carry your backpack for hours on end? Then choose a daypack with wide shoulder straps. Narrow shoulder straps cut through your skin more quickly and distribute the load less across both shoulders than a backpack with wide shoulder straps.

Liter capacity

Whatever you plan to carry in your backpack, always consider its liter capacity. A 40 liter backpack logically fits more than a 20 liter backpack. Often this aligns with the activity you’re about to do. You carry less stuff throughout a day at school or work than when you travel with just a trekking backpack. Think carefully about how much you want to carry in your bag and always pay close attention to the liter capacity of the backpack before you order it.

Layout and compartments

The layout of the backpack is different for each type and model. For example, there are laptop backpacks with special compartments for safe storage of laptops, while school backpacks generally have multiple side pockets for, among other things: lunch, pencil cases, books, etc. Most backpacks have a main compartment opening at the top, so you load the bag from above. In most cases this works fine. But when traveling, you might prefer to open your backpack like a suitcase: from the front/side. The advantage of a backpack with an opening in the front is that you can organize your bag more easily so that you can easily remove things from the bag. So you no longer need to take out the entire contents of the bag for one shirt at the bottom. Ideal isn’t it?
