10 Most Amazing Rucksacks That Money Can Buy

Tripoto

There are a few things in life that warrant the kind of attachment that travellers have for their rucksacks. We carry our world behind our backs as we make our way through the milestones that we tread past in our journey through life. Loaded with both the romance and realism of travel, the rucksack is the ultimate symbol of wanderlust.

Your choice of rucksack can make or break your trip. A good rucksack is versatile, lightweight, adapts to your shape seamlessly and doesn't sweat even when you are pushing yourself to your limit. Here are my picks for the best rucksacks in the world that money can buy.

1. Quechua Escape Men’s Lockable Hiking Backpack 70 Litre - Rs 15,000

The Quechua rucksack is large enough to accommodate a tent, a sleeping bag and more, but is still surprisingly sleek and lightweight. Spacious and customisable interiors make the bag roomier than it looks. Designed with the long-term backpacker in mind, this range is thoughtfully equipped with adjustable straps and belts.
