What are some of the different kinds of backpacks?

Types of Backpacks

The backpack has become such a universal item of personal luggage that there's sure to be a backpack to match your style.

Leather is cool and luxurious, not to mention expensive. You don't want to get it wet. The polar extreme to leather is a waterproof backpack. The waterproof backpack is great, made of durable polyester or nylon. It's great for traveling, and not just to the rain forest.

Good women's packs are made to fit women's bodies, and may incorporate smaller sizes and more curving lines than the largest outdoors models. They're even available in small backpacks suitable for carrying as evening bags!

Sling backpacks are as casual as they sound and should be for those more interested in using those as a personal item to accompany the carry-on luggage. The "teardrop" shape is believed to be particularly back-friendly.
