Are there gender-specific rucksacks?
Most rucksacks and daypack options are unisex, but there are gender-specific options available here at Winfields Outdoors. Rucksacks, daysacks and travel pack options for women will be designed slightly differently, usually consisting of alternative shoulder-to-hip ratios and narrower neck areas to provide superior comfort.
Although there are specially designed rucksacks for women, don’t be put off unisex rucksack and daypack options. Universal rucksacks will still provide exceptional quality and superb comfort to all hikers. We highly recommend browsing out our entire rucksack selection before making your decision.
What’s the difference between a rucksack and a daysack?
Rucksacks and daysacks are used interchangeably because both packs are suited to most adventuring experiences.
Rucksacks are usually the go-to for a more durable and weather-resistant option, as these outdoor packs are made from more robust materials and great for packing a generous amount of belongings away. So, if you’re a traveller planning to explore the great outdoors in testing conditions, opt for a rucksack.
Daysacks are also very durable options, however, these packs tend to be slightly more lightweight. Daypacks offer most benefits found in rucksacks but are better suited to day trips and light exploring adventures.
Similar to rucksacks, there are also many different daypack designs. For example, packable daypacks are great for minimalist travel experiences. Daysacks also tend to retail cheaper than specialist outdoor rucksacks.
So, for example, if you’re a commuter, regularly partake in sports or are an avid hiker, a daysack would be an ideal outdoor pack.
Are there extra features I should look out for?
This will entirely depend on your preference, however, it’s always great to know what you’ll use your outdoor rucksack for. This way, you’ll have a better idea of the added features you’d find benefit from!
For example, if you enjoy hillwalking and regularly use walking poles, you may find it beneficial to look for an expandable rucksack that offers the option to attach walking poles to the rucksack when not in use. It might also be worth looking for adjustable rucksacks with padded hip belts for superior comfort!
For backpackers or an explorer who enjoys a good old-fashioned expedition every once in a while, you might want to consider a waterproof rucksack or a comfortable daypack with a hydration system. This will allow you to stay hydrated on the go without any hassle.
What is meant by rucksack volume size?
The volume is referring to the overall capacity of the rucksack or baggage type. So, simply think of ‘volume’ as the rucksack measurement.
It’s essential to get the volume size right. For example, you wouldn’t want a 25-litre rucksack for backpacking or travelling, as it wouldn’t be big enough! So, if you’re looking for a travel-friendly option, go for rucksack bags of at least a 60-litre capacity.
Alternatively, If you’re looking for a rucksack for daily commutes to work or light exploring, a 10-30 litre capacity rucksack should be more than enough. These volumes would also be a perfect size range for walkers who enjoy day trip adventures.
