Whether you’re backpacking Europe or exploring Southeast Asia, a daypack is a handy, multi-purpose item used for carrying choice belongings while exploring your travel destination. Differing from travel backpacks or carry-on luggage, daypacks should be comfortable for all-day carrying as well as packable, lightweight, durable and secure.


Best Daypack for Comfort: Eagle Creek Packable Daypack


Eagle Creek has been a trusted name in intelligent and durable travel luggage for nearly 40 years. Weighing only 6 ounces and designed for packing into main backpacks or luggage, the Eagle Creek Packable Daypack expands to a full-sized backpack to offer enough storage space for cameras, guidebooks, a light jacket, snacks and souvenirs.


Light on the shoulders, The Eagle Creek Packable Daypack features adjustable, ultra-lightweight shoulder straps made of breathable 3D Air Mesh material — a welcome feature when hiking in Vietnam or exploring Mumbai. Constructed of durable Poly Ripstop material, the daypack also features a removable pack-in pocket that doubles as a front pocket, offering organizational and access options.


Compact, lightweight and versatile, the Eagle Creek Packable Daypack retails at $27.50 and includes a lifetime warranty.


Best Daypack for Security: Travelon Anti-Theft Classic Backpack


Equipped with multiple security features, the Travelon Anti-Theft Backpack is a smart option for travelers who frequent crowded public areas such as train stations and popular tourist attractions. The conveniently roomy daypack features a hidden Chain Link construction to thwart slash-and-grab theft. Also, locking zippers on the main and organizer compartments provide an added level of security. Although the bag is ultra-secure, the daypack also offers easy-access side pockets and adjustable straps for optimal comfort.


Spacious with added security measures, the Travelon Anti-Theft Classic Backpack retails for $75 and comes with a one-year warranty.


Your daypack is your most constant travel companion. Don’t skimp on quality, tote around large backpacks or risk carrying a purse. Check out these highly praised daypacks before setting-off on your next travel adventure.
