Travel Backpacks for Men (Full Reviews)

This page will give you reviews of some of the best travel backpacks for men. There is a lot to go into picking the best travel backpack that is right for you. Usually, travel backpacks for men are more expensive than your average backpack, and have a lot more features. But they also usually last a lot longer than your average backpacks. This is because they are more durable.

Please, just take me straight to the reviews Now!

You can expect to pay in the range of $150-300 for a good quality travel backpack. However, there are some exceptions. There are a few backpacks that are less than $100 that are just as well made as the more expensive backpacks.

I have personally used the Osprey Aether 70 when I backpacked around Europe in 2015. This Osprey backpack is now one of the older versions, but still a good buy in my opinion. Especially since the price has gone down. But there are definitely a lot of newer travel backpacks for men that can work just as well.

Travel Backpack Reviews for Men

What am I looking for when reviewing these backpacks?

#1 is DEFINITELY durability

Travel backpacks are all about durability first and foremost. What’s the point in buying a backpack to travel with long term if it falls apart?

Travel Backpacks for Men - Kelty Eagle 7850

Kelty Eagle 7850

One of the most durable backpacks on the list is the Kelty Eagle 7850 Backpack.  But all of the backpacks on the list are pretty durable or I wouldn’t have reviewed them.  They all come from reputable companies.

How Comfortable is the backpack?

This is right up with durability. You want to be comfortable when wearing the travel backpack. You don’t want to regret your purchase in the middle of your trip, when your shoulders and back are aching.  For this, I recommend the backpack I used to travel.

Does it come with a lot of accessories (pockets, straps, gadgets, etc.)?

One of the things I loved about my Osprey backpack was the fact that it had a TONs of places to store items. I never had to worry about fitting something else in my backpack, except for the amount of weight i was carrying. If you are traveling long term, you will want a lot of options of where to put things.

Rank

I decided to rank the backpacks overall to give you an idea what the best value buy is. With a ton of options, it is hard to always pick the right one. Why should you take my ranks into consideration? Because I have researched all of the backpacks thoroughly, and have a good idea which ones are the best travel backpacks for men.

Price

The last thing that I will evaluate is the price point. Are you paying to much for the travel backpack or is it a steal?

That’s it!

I’ll let you decide which one of the travel backpacks is the most stylish for you.
