In addition to a reliable suitcase, most frequent travelers will tell you a trusty backpack is a must for any trip. But what makes the perfect travel backpack? It depends on the scenario, but most would agree that it’s a combination of the right size, an array of organizational pockets, comfortable shoulder straps, and a durable, ideally weather-resistant material. With all of these factors in mind, I’ve rounded up some of the best knapsacks out there right now. Whether it’s a carry-on size bag that’s suitable for a five-day trip or a packable daypack that you can carry at all times, here are the best travel backpacks to gift this holiday season.
Really just about everything Peak Design makes is extraordinary, but their travel backpack has continually topped “best” lists, and for good reason. It boasts some of the most desirable features you could drum up such as multiple access points, a variety of pockets including hidden stashes, several grab handles, stowable straps and hip belt, luggage passthrough, and theft-deterrent zippers.

The backpack is separated into two sections and has a clamshell design, making it very easy to pack. The main compartment features three zippered pockets, a great way to keep clothes separated from undergarments. The back section has been designed for tech and accessories, boasting a variety of pockets, key leash, zippered document sleeve, and a laptop holder with a Velcro strap for easy removal when going through airport security.

Skipping the buzz—and the calories – has gotten much more enjoyable.

I’ve noted how these beverages were made – some start with fermented grapes – actual wine—then use complex chemistry to remove the alcohol.

Here are this year’s top picks.
