Buying a backpack when travelling is a big deal. It can make the difference between being comfortable or uncomfortable for a lot of your trip. I recently had to buy a new backpack, after it broke. I had been using it for three years, so below are things I would look for when buying a new backpack, that have definitely made my life easier. When buying one I wouldn't spend over £60. I think this is plenty enough to buy a good sturdy backpack, that’s comfortable, and will last.
I recommend buying an 80 litre backpack. This is the perfect size to fit everything I need in. I think 100 litres is a little to big and will get heavy. Usually the bigger it is, the more you will try to put in it. Anything less that 80 is pretty small, but if you’re a light packer then get a smaller one. An 80 litre can be used for 2 weeks to 6 months and works perfect.
