There are lots of different sizes and styles of day backpacks to choose from, but an easy way to narrow down your search is to look for one that's designed for the activity you need it for. If you're planning a one-day hike, many daypacks for hikingare compatible withhydration bladders and have water bottle pockets on each side so you can stay hydrated.

DAYPACKS FOR WOMEN

Daypacks for women come in lots of torso size options, and with more rounded straps suited to a woman's body shape. Hip belts for hiking tend to be positioned a little differently too.

Day packs for running are designed to prevent them from moving too much as you run, and often have straps that go across the chest for extra stability. Pockets are positioned for easy access to snacks, and most running vests and packs are compatible with hydration bladders too.

MEN'S DAY BACKPACKS

If you're looking for men's day backpacks for work, commuting, or travel, look for a bag with features such as a laptop sleeve and separate compartments to organise smaller items. Many travel bags have a front panel opening rather than a top opening, and often have dual zips with space for travel locks. Some also allow you to tuck straps away, so they don't get caught in conveyor belts at the airport.

A daypack for road cycling will have a sleek, low-profile design that keeps them light and stable on your back as you ride, without creating a lot of wind resistance. Mountain biking packs are often a big bigger to allow you to carry extra gear like bike tools and clothing. And many are compatible with hydration bladders for easy access to water.
