Essential Backpacks for Day Trips

If you’re getting ready for a day trip, you need a sturdy, stylish travel bag. You don’t have to look any further than the backpack, which comes in a variety of sizes and colors and offers ample storage for your day trip essentials. Here are some bags to consider for your short-term travels:

The ClassMate Backpack

ClassMate backpacks aren’t just for school—they can also serve as fashionable, functional day trip bags. These backpacks have all the features you want in a travel bag, such as 600-denier polyester construction. This type of polyester is water-resistant for safe use on rainy days, and it won’t snag or rip easily. It’s also easy to spot-clean, and the fabric dries quickly.

The ClassMate backpack is available in a variety of sizes from mini to extra-large. For a day trip, you’ll probably be fine with the large or extra-large size. One of the main compartments can be used for a change of clothes, while the other can be used to carry extra shoes if you need them. Smaller zippered compartments work well for cash, cards, keys, and other small items. There’s room for your smartphone and an MP3 player pocket with a cutout for earbuds.

These backpacks are equipped with mesh side pockets, each of which can accommodate a standard water bottle. The front has straps for securing a lunch bag to the backpack without taking up interior space. Speaking of water bottles and lunch bags, they come in colors and prints to match the ClassMate backpacks for a matching look. You can monogram all these items for a personal touch and easy identification. Personalized backpacks are also great for the gym and toting while you run your everyday errands.

ClassMate backpacks are comfortable to carry. They have contoured, padded straps that adjust for a perfect fit, and the back panel is also padded for comfort.

The TechPack Backpack

If you’re taking your laptop and/or tablet on your day trip, consider the TechPack. It comes with many of the same features as the ClassMate style, except with tech-friendly additions. This laptop backpack has a zippered main compartment, along with a padded, zippered laptop compartment. There’s also a zippered front folder pocket and side access front pocket, which you can use for keeping folders, papers, books, and other items organized. There’s also a lined top pocket for safely carrying your smartphone.

Another reason to take the TechPack on your next day trip is its adjustable chest strap, which is new and improved. This strap helps balance the weight of your backpack and takes the strain off your shoulders. These backpacks have YKK-brand zippers for durability and ease of use, and they’re equipped with water bottle pockets on the sides.

The Waxed Canvas Backpack

Another backpack that works well for day trips is the waxed canvas style. It comes in stylish neutral colors such as brown and black, and it’s crafted from 100 percent waxed canvas cotton. This material is soft and sturdy, and it repels water to keep interior contents dry. These backpacks have multiple compartments, including the main compartment for clothes or other items and a laptop compartment with padding for your technology.

If you have small items to carry, the waxed canvas backpack is a good option because it has one hanging mesh pocket on the inside and three external pockets. The foam padding on the back and straps makes this backpack comfortable to carry, while the leather trim and nautically inspired hardware impart upscale style.

The Travel Backpack

One of the sturdiest, most versatile day trip bags you can own is the travel backpack. It has 1680-denier ballistic nylon construction, so you don’t have to worry about rips or tears. The material is water-resistant to safeguard interior contents, and the three compartments provide ample storage. This backpack has a padded laptop compartment and two external zippered side pockets. Carry your phone or tablet safely in the internal mesh pocket, which is equipped with a cord keeper to prevent wires from tangling.

If you have documents or folders to carry, this backpack has plenty of room. It’s big enough for your technology, clothing, shoes, and more. Another thing you’ll love about this bag is that you can carry it on your shoulders or slip it over a rolling luggage handle to turn it into a rolling backpack. Like the other backpacks, this one can be personalized with a monogram for an additional cost. It’s great for your next day trip, and it also makes a good gift for the traveler on your list.

Totes and Toiletry Bags

In addition to a good backpack, you may want to carry a canvas tote bag and/or toiletry bag on your day trip. There are open-top and zippered women’s travel bags from which to choose in classic neutral tones, vibrant brights, and on-trend hues such as rose gold.

Explore the selection of backpacks to find the right one for your travels. There’s also a wide variety of suitcases for longer trips to cover all your travel bag needs.
