No matter what you’re into – climbing, fishing, camping or cycling there’s a daypack that will suit your needs and requirements. The main features you will want to look at in a daypack / backpack will depend on what you intend to do with your travel daypack.
A good capactiy for storage and different pockets are features most people look for when choosing a backpack daypack. Most daypacks tend not to have internal support so they make great daypacks or backpacks for short trips where you don’t have to carry much gear (like bushwalking, cycling or skiing etc).
When considering a bushwalking daypack you will have greater comfort from a narrow profile daypack along with some type of padding in the back area. If you’re planning on longer walks you may want to consider a larger pack with a hipbelt and sternum strap... particularly if you’re planning on traversing a variety of different terrains.
Depending on where you’re going and how you intend to get there will determine if you need a low capacity pack or a more technical daypack.
If you take stock of all your equipment like shoes, carabiners, ropes, harnesess etc, this will determine the space and additional features you might require.
A sternum strap is also important as this will stop your backpack from moving around when you’re climbing and moving up the rock face.
When considering a skiing daypack, a narrow and sleek profile will stop you from snagging on passing trees and obstacles. Depending on how far you plan to travel will determine how large a daypack you will need as carrying extra food and clothing takes up space.
