Europe is best explored by hopping from country to country, culture to culture. With lots of moving about, you’ll definitely need a newer, better backpack to serve as your best travel friend.
We believe a backpack needs a waterproof material, padded straps and practicality and security features. In terms of size, we’ve tried to cover every size out there, as travel backpacks should be proportional to your own size.
That being said, with our recommendations you can’t go wrong – just make sure to try it on before committing to it. Most retail sites do offer returns – so there’s no excuses now!

Nomatic 40L TRAVEL BAG
This product was recommended by Jaime Huffman from Charleston Blonde
It is the most practical travel bag EVER! We took it to Europe this past summer and it was an absolute dream. I swear it has a place for EVERYTHING. Traveling across 3 countries with a 9-year old is never easy. But this bag make packing so much easier. There are specific compartments for shoes, liquids, technology, and everything in between. We got stuck in torrential downpour in Rome, luckily the bag is water resistant so we didn’t have to worry. Plus it has the TSA-ready flap so you can leve the tech in the bag when you go through security at the airport.

This product was recommended by Matej Halouska from Czech the World
Mariposa is a 60 liters backpack, which exactly fits dimensions of carry-on luggage of most airlines, if not fully loaded. Therefore you can take it on the plane and then in the destination you still have a space to add food and water. It’s ultralight (700g) and made from durable material. It also has a great massive hip belt. It’s very comfortable to wear, I am using it for more than 3 years and it has been nothing but amazing.
