Die perfekten Rucksäcke für die Straße und den Wanderweg
  • June 21, 2019

Mountain ready and yet stylish in the city: what used to be clear opposites for backpacks is now a wonderful combination. These Daypacks are great on the mountain as well as in the city

Ötzi wasn't the only person who had one: Archaeological finds prove that our ancestors already used simple back carriers in the Neolithic Age 3300 years BC. Over the course of time, the simple load carriers have developed into sophisticated products with ventilation systems and laptop compartments. Here come seven genuine all-rounders that are always ready for use in everyday office life and on the mountain.

In addition, the XV1 has a padded and removable hip belt, an inner tablet pocket and three outer pockets. Also good: The backpack is made of PFC-free materials.Volume: 17 litres

Der PETAir von Vaude aus recycelten PET-Flaschen

Bernt von Sandqvist: der Rucksack für Stilbewusste

The Angular Backpack

Bernt by Sandqvist

This backpack makes hipster hearts beat faster: narrow buckles, gaudy contrasts - and it can also be rolled. In the main compartment there is enough space for beard oil, analog camera and two kilograms of avocados - or even a sleeping bag for the hut, sun screen and a thermos flask. Depending on the application.Volume: 20 litres

Viel Platz im Arbor Classic von Patagonia mit einem Volumen von 25 Litern

The Voluminous Backpack

Arbor Classic from Patagonia

Functionally beautiful instead of unusually impractical. Often it doesn't take much more than a generous main compartment and two adjustable shoulder straps. The Arbor Classic from Patagonia, which is mainly used in urban everyday life, offers both: a padded laptop compartment (15 inches) on the inside and water-repellent impregnation on the outside. And for those who like to walk around the city with ice axes, the backpack offers a generously dimensioned backpack loop. Volume: 25 litres
