How To Choose The Best Travel Backpack For Women

Embarking on a journey is not just about the destination but also the experience along the way. And what better way to enhance your travel experience than by traveling light? Say goodbye to cumbersome luggage and hello to the freedom of minimalism with Knack. In this guide, we'll explore the art of packing light and how Knack can revolutionize the way you travel.

Why pack light?

Before diving into the specifics, let's understand why packing light is essential. Packing light not only saves you from the hassle of lugging around heavy bags but also offers several other benefits. You can move swiftly through airports, navigate crowded streets effortlessly, and even save money on baggage fees. Additionally, traveling light encourages mindfulness, forcing you to prioritize what's truly essential for your journey.

Staying Mindful and Present:

We’ve all been there - lugging around three suitcases, juggling multiple bags in our hands while trying to catch that bus, plane or train. It's a sweaty, breathless ordeal, prompting immediate regrets about overpacking. Now, picture a simpler alternative: one streamlined backpack that holds everything you need, leaving your hands free. Traveling light not only lightens your physical load but also frees your mind to fully immerse in the journey. It empowers you to travel where and how you want, unhindered by excess baggage and the stress it brings.

Tips for Packing Light:

Let's delve into some tips for packing light:

  1. Invest in Multipurpose Gear: Transitioning to traveling exclusively with a backpack can be a bit challenging for those accustomed to boarding with suitcases or duffel bags. However, at Knack, we've mastered the art of traveling with just one bag (spoiler: it's a Knack Pack)! We love the Knack Pack because it’s a great piece of multipurpose gear. It serves as a bag to hold your favorite gear (laptop, camera, wallet, a tequila shot or two), as well as your clothes for vacation! Check out our blog on how to pack for a carry-on here.
  2. Understand How Much is Too Much (obviously, right?): Navigating the realm of backpack sizes can feel overwhelming. Unsure about which liter capacity suits your needs best? This comprehensive guide breaks down backpack sizes and liters to simplify your decision-making process. Whether you're a seasoned traveler or entering the workforce, this guide will ensure that your next backpack purchase is straightforward and stress-free. Check out our guide here.
  3. Maximize Your Space: You’ve heard it before - roll, don’t fold! Use our packing cubes that are made specifically for our Knack Packs to maximize each compartment and separate your smelly socks from your cocktail dress. Check out our blog on how to create a packing list and stick to it!
  4. Stick to the Essentials: When planning your travel outfits, focus on essentials that offer versatility. Choose clothing items that can be easily mixed and matched to create multiple outfits. Look for garments made from wrinkle-resistant fabrics, which are practical and ensure you look polished throughout your trip, such as wool, nylon, spandex and items with polyester blended into their fabric!
