The five best backpacks that made it to this top are all suitable for those looking for a sturdy backpack to take in their trips, whether for a day or a weekend. With the large number of backpacks out there, the choice was difficult, so we took into account factors such as weight, comfort, durability, ease of access from the top and the lateral sides, and straps. Other backpacks that were contenders for the top 5 best backpacks for 2016 included the Eagle Creek Deviate 60, which is very versatile, but not large enough for long trips, and the Pacsafe VentureSafe 65, an excellent backpack with enhanced security features, which turn into a downside when it comes to accessing the items inside with ease.

We took into account both specialist reviews and reviews from consumers who actually used the backpacks and reviewed them on leading shopping websites. The backpack that snatched the first place in the top comes from the well-known backpack manufacturer Osprey and is one of the best choices out there for those looking for a heavy-duty backpack with numerous pockets. For a lightweight backpack with good suspensions for enhanced comfort, have a look at The North Face Banchee 65 and the Deuter Air Contact 65+10.
