A typical backpack is made from plastic, foam, canvas, or even wood because of the large amount of pockets and compartments it has. Each of these materials have their own purpose is determined by the type of travel you do and the things you use it for.


If you choose a designer backpack you will want a design that fits in with your style and makes a statement. The larger sizes of designer backpacks can be uncomfortable for carrying around. They are best used for camping trips or long road trips.


If you do not have a clue about what kind of material is best for you, check out the tag on the package to determine which fabric is right for you. They say nylon is a good fabric to wear while hiking. Nylon is the best fabric for carrying delicate items like wallets and cell phones.

The only way to know whether a company is honest and high quality is to read reviews of what others have said about them. It is easy to see that some people are spending too much money for fake reviews. The same thing goes for a "low rating" and so forth.

Make sure to wash the backpack properly in cold water. When you buy one online, you can also look at forums or other web sites where you can find tips on how to clean the backpack.


Wash the outer fabric of the backpack with detergent in cold water and allow it to dry. When you do this the fabrics absorb the dirt and grime and will be easier to clean.


Always treat the innermost material of the backpack with soap or shampoo that is specific for the make and model of the backpack. This is also the part of the backpack that tends to get dirtier and is less likely to be cleaned properly.


The most important thing to do is make sure the backpack is thoroughly dry after you have washed it. Otherwise it will not absorb any of the liquids that come into contact with it.
