This will help ensure all items inside stay protected throughout their journey. That makes it convenient when you need another way to stay hydrated on hot days or while hiking in an area with limited resources available.

The North Face Surge backpack is the biggest backpack on our list, at 31 liters of volume. Whether you’re packing backpacking gear, books, or electronic equipment, you’ll have more than enough space. While the volume usually ranges from 27 to 30 liters, The North Face also makes backpacking backpacks with over 60 liters of volume.

Although backpacks come with adjustable back pieces, it helps to have a backpack that fits your torso length properly. With this kind of pocket, it’s an easy carry for you of your water bottles. The flex vent suspension system allows you to be more at ease while using the vault backpack. It facilitates the proper ventilation at the back of the person, so it will give you enough support while carrying it.

S often have just a single compartment and then pockets for organization, but there are plenty of options with multiple compartments too. The Recon will truly shine for users who need to carry all sorts of different things during their commute or for those who also like the fact that it is a versatile day hiking pack. However, its look makes it more appropriate for students than serious professionals. It would also make a great travel pack and is also a good option for wet weather commuters. The ultimate backpack can be used as a supplement to backpacking or camping trips, or when you need a quick grab-bag for trips out to the office or workspace.
