TIP: Try before you buy to make sure your rucsac fits properly.

 

Best for Day Trips

Go light with a 15l-25l rucsac that will hold your essentials without adding bulk. Mesh back systems let air flow down your back for extra comfort. 

Multiple pockets make it easy to organise your stuff and a rain cover lets you explore in all weathers. 

Best for Trekking

For longer hikes, comfort is king so go for a high performance backpack with a ventilated padded back, adjustable straps and hip belt. Every kilo counts so stick to 25l-45l capacities. 

Lighter options that are cleverly packed will take you further. Look for extra features like pole straps, hydration systems and rain covers.

Best for Backpacking

Explore the world with a high tech 30l-65l backpack with lots of space for kit and multiple pockets for organising your stuff. Make sure it can be adjusted to fit your body with contoured padded shoulder straps for extra comfort. 

Hip belt pockets are great for keeping valuables close. Rain covers are essential for dry kit. Compression straps bring the load closer to your body, making the bag easier to carry. Other useful features include hydration systems and pole carrier straps.

Best for Holidays

Heading to the campsite or off on a plane? You want a bag that can withstand the rigours of holiday travel. 

A 40l rucsac is ideal as it gives you lots of packing space and can double as a day bag during the holiday. Or go for a classic holdall, which gives a flatter packing area for clothes.

Best for Work or School

Choose a bag that takes you from work to play in style. It needs to be large enough for documents, laptops, gym kit or a light jacket – but small enough for easy commuting. 

A 20l-25l capacity is ideal. Look for features like laptop holders, organiser pockets and mesh water bottles holders.

Best for Kids

Fun, functional and full of features, our Kids Rucsacs are great for school, sleepovers, holidays, camping and beyond. 

Padded backs and adjustable shoulder straps make them easy and comfortable to carry. The bold designs make them a hit in the playground.
