is a rucksack bag?
Rucksack bags are available in a wide variety(design) and capacity(in liters) online. Generally, 30-90l capacity bags are mostly bought from Amazon. Rucksack bags are used by backpackers internationally or domestic. They are easy to carry while traveling. Backpackers prefer rucksack bags over small size trolley bags(40–50lit) because they are free to carry in the airplane cabin (mostly) and you can do packing for 2-3 months easily in 40-50l rucksack bags.
Basically, three types of rucksack backpack bag
- Front-loaded rucksack bag
- Top-loaded rucksack bag
- Combined, Front load-Top load
Front-loaded backpack open from the front, you can load or put items in the bag from the front. If you don’t want to carry an additional small bag for keeping useful or regularly used items then rucksack is the best backpack brands for trekking. You don’t have to unload everything for getting out something essential from the bottom of the bag while trekking. I’m also using a combined front and top-loaded backpack bag.
Almost 80% of rucksack bags are top-loaded bags open from the top from there you load items. Only buy top-loaded bags when you are carrying an additional bag(small bag-15-20l) otherwise, I would recommend you buy bags with both options front and top
90% long time backpackers(3-6 months) use 40l to 50l bags, you can pack for short as well as a long trip. You don’t need to carry two large (different) bags, one for your luggage and one for keeping essential things that you’ll need while exploring local areas. Traveling with a backpack is easy and comfortable if it’s small. You can walk or trek 3-4 hrs comfortably with a medium size backpack.
Medium size 40-50l bag is perfect backpack size, not too small or not too large, just enough for any kind of trip, whether it’s 3 months Southeast Asia trip or amazing Europe trip. Also, comfortably fits in flight’s cabin and that helps you save money on luggage. There are many international flights where you can use this medium range of bags as a Cabin bag.
#Mistakes people do on International trips:
Don’t carry things you won’t need like. People carry a lot of things because they have a large rucksack backpack or a lack of travel experience. Just don’t do that, only carry essential items like clothes, gadgets(camera, phone, laptop), etc. Otherwise, you’ll pay for the check-in and at the same time, you’ll carry heavy luggage. Instead, save some money to exploring. Compare the cost of essential items in your country and the country you are going, plan accordingly.
For example, I have traveled to Thailand for 15 days in a small 40l bag and didn’t pay for baggage. I only carried things that were essential(little more than I used, to be honest) and saved $ 50 which equals 10 days in Thailand traveling.
