A travel backpack packs like a suitcase but is small enough to wear on your back as you trudge through the airport or trek around a new city.
We tested nine of the top travel backpacks and determined that the Tortuga Outbreaker is the best you can buy with its generous capacity, functional organizer pockets, and customizable strap system.
If you’re looking for a more traditional suitcase, check out our guide to the best carry-ons.
Basically suitcases you can wear on your back, travel backpacks are the favorite luggage of many a digital nomad, urban explorer, work traveler — and me. When you don’t want to pack a carry-on or deal with a rolling suitcase, a good travel backpack is a one-bag solution. With plenty of room to fit all the clothes you need for a short trip plus organizer pockets for tech, accessories, and travel documents, it’s a great way to travel light.
To find the best travel backpack, I tested nine of the most popular models on the market for capacity, packability, logical pocket placement, and carry comfort. I wanted packs that felt manageable in size and bulk but still allowed me enough room for all my usual packing needs. I stuck mainly to packs that opened like a suitcase — clamshells, front-loaders, and back-loaders — but I left some room for wildcards. At the end of this guide, you’ll find my full testing methodology and a glossary of useful vocabulary to know as you shop for your travel backpack.
