The Best Backpack Brands

List of backpack brands that include the most reliable and comfortable models available. Popular backpack brands include those from major manufacturers of backpacks including Nike, Adidas, Volcom and more. A backpack (also called rucksack, knapsack, packsack and pack) is, in its simplest form, a cloth sack carried on one's back and secured with two straps that go over the shoulders. But with all of the available features, backpacks can much more complex than that.

Backpacks are often preferred to handbags for carrying heavy loads or carrying any sort of equipment, because of the limited capacity to carry heavy weights for long periods of time in the hands. Large backpacks, used to carry loads over 10 kg (22 lbs), usually offload the largest part (up to about 90%) of their weight onto padded hip belts, leaving the shoulder straps mainly for stabilising the load. This improves the potential to carry heavy loads, as the hips are stronger than the shoulders, and also increases agility and balance, since the load rides nearer the wearer's own center of mass.

So who makes the best backpacks? Users looking for a new backpack will want to research a variety of different brands to find the one that best suits their needs according to style, fit, comfort, price and availability.
