As with any travel accessory purchase, we recommend doing your research first. When shopping for packable backpacks, look for durable fabrics that are built to last. Lightweight materials like nylon and polyester are common, but you'll want to find one that's resistant to the wear and tear travel can inflict.
Also, make sure to examine the details like closures, pockets, adjustability, and added support features like chest straps if you plan to wear your pack for long periods of time. And don't forget to be mindful of the volume, as well. If you're hoping to bring a lot of gear or snacks, a large water bottle, and a just-in-case jacket along on a day trip, you'll want a pack that's sized to accommodate all your essentials.
