My priority is good fabric quality, back cushioning, Straps for support, Capacity 45-55 ltrs. Budget is under 2k if possible but can stretch if a good deal is found.

Liked
Wildcraft Alpinist 55 Ltrs – https://www.amazon.in/Wildcraft-Alpinist-Orange...

Wildcraft Trailblazer 50 – https://www.amazon.in/Wildcraft-Trailblazer-Ora...

but both seems very costly and deals also doesn’t seems very reasonable (Lesser discount stuck_out_tongue)

Please share if you have good experience with any other brand or recommendation of any friend.

Good experience using Wildcraft backpacks, used it for over 25000 km’s across auto rickshaw, car, bus, train, plane, not even one thread has come off it.

Go for the 55 ltrs one, extra space always become useful when travelling

I bought a 90 ltrs one thinking same and it is really so irritating to carry that thing. And shoulder straps makes noise while walking.. Fch Fch Fch 😅 upto 60 is ideal I think. More than that is like overburdening any trip & inviting shoulder pain.

After years of experience buy a 45-50 ltr Quechua.

Usually at tourist places if not on bike or car and if I buy local stuff as souvenirs, many for gifting. prefer to find a pan India courier service in a local town or walk into local post office and send parcel at Rs 60/kg instead of lugging through the entire trip.

Like on a ride to Goa with a stopover meet bough belgaum silk saree, local food items and parcelled it to pune immediately instead of carrying it further for next 1000km.

Against my fellow rides who loaded their bags for entire trip or some who didn’t buy just for scared to carry them arround and not be agile.

Hope you get the point. Travel light with the smallest bag possible and do buy the wallet sized folded backpack ं.Still have my reabok one which straps on externally to my backpack.

The problem with Quechua / decathlon is that it has become so popular as a travel gear company, everyone is buying it .

Almost like 6 out of 10 people on backpack travel are using the same thing, makes one feels like you are on some kind of school picnic, many people with identical bags, shoes, raincoat etc.

yes, 90 ltr backpack is too big a haul, unless you are taking your own mule along on the journey.

😂 There is safety in a heard. Chance of bag getting stolen are reduced.

Bags are purpose built.

Only when you start using it realise the detailed thought process since it’s designed by professional trekkers and tested by professionals in the extreme conditions.

popular are considered good generally. They got popular because of affordable pricing yet top quality. So word of mouth does it for them.

Nowadays everyone wants to be unique, different from the rest, in this aspect do you like carrying around or wearing the same trekking bags and shoes or jackets like everyone else in the place.
