Men's And Women's Bags SelectionThere are questions and concerns being raised about the spread of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and backpackers, how are they related? Suitcases are so much more convenient but having my backpack strapped to me when traveling reassures me that I won't be able to easily lose my countries we travel to aren't always the safest and I have first-hand experience in one moment having your suitcase next to you and having it disappear the next moment without you even noticing.
For the last two and a half years, I've been travelling around the world with my Osprey Farpoint 40 , and I love it. While it's not travel backpacks online technically a female specific backpack, it comes in two different sizes, so getting a good fit should be possible for most girls.
First of all, backpacks are not just for young backpackers sleeping in dorms and eating baked beans, the best carry on backpacks for international travel (in fact for any type of travel) are for smart travellers who don't want to be weighed down with suitcases.
If you go too big on size for your travel backpack, you'll have a tendency to fill the space and carrying too much gear around the world gets tiring real quick and is not good for the health of your back - we found ourselves de-cluttering and throwing away stuff we didn't need on a constant basis.
All the larger bags we tested have adjustable frames: to fit them to yourself, adjust the shoulder straps so the hip straps sit comfortably above your hip bones, then adjust the back length so the shoulder straps tuck in behind your shoulder blades and follow the natural curvature of your back.
If you're looking for a carry-on sized travel bag that can do it all, you just might find your match in the Osprey Porter 46. The largest carry-on compatible pack in Osprey's travel bag line-up, the Porter features padded sidewalls to protect your gear and clothing when you're on the go.
Even for people carrying a laptop, I don't think it is necessary to have a separate compartment for a laptop as usually, your laptop comes in its own protective case. The main compartment of this Kelty 44 backpack can be accessed from the top of the pack via a small zippered panel, or similar to a suitcase opening, when the backpack is laid on its back, almost the entire front panel can be zipped open.
If you are travelling for long periods (for example flights, trains, bus trips), limit your liquid consumption prior to your trip and during your trip. The workmanship behind this backpack defiantly lives up to Osprey's standards; strong sewn seams, great zippers and straps and durable buckles.
It is easy to carry and gives the most effective travel companion during field trips as well as for stocking large amounts of luggage. The backpack also has an outer zipper pocket, and it comes with an air-mesh padded back and shoulder straps for breathability.
On a recent trip to Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory, I met a girl from Austria carrying a backpack that would have challenged a weightlifter. One of my most frequently asked questions about backpacks is about size. The Osprey Women's Aura 50 AG Backpack is a large pack and is receiving great reviews with regards to its comfort factors.
