Backpack Review and Best Backpack Choices

Independent Consumer Comments

For a comprehensive understanding of our approach to backpack research, the Backpack Review Resources provides a listing of the majority of information sources used by our team to aggregate backpack review details and insights.

There are numerous online reviews and sources of information spread all over the Internet, but it takes hours and hours to first sort through all the blogs, product sellers and manufacturer sites and then read the hundreds of reviews (good and bad).

The Best Backpack Guide not only saves you the time, the real value is in our review summaries that pick out the nitty gritty details from individual assessments in different use categories. Sometimes a single review provides the best highlights for making the decision to buy or not.

Too many reviewers make comments before ever testing or using the product in the field, on campus or commuting to the office. These type of backpack reviews provide little value for anyone trying to determine functionality, durability or other factors.

The following backpack review resources are separated into independent consumer information websites, online backpack retailers and brand manufacturer sites. Please feel free to use these resources for your own further research to find the best backpack that suits your situation.

Consumer Product Reviews

Throughout the year you can find nuggets of information on some of the best backpacks rated by various consumer groups or online information communities. These are good sources for finding good backpack products according to different categories. However, the emphasis is more on the top 10 than the full range of backpacks available from manufacturers.

Use these resources for preliminary research to discover the types of features and price ranges to expect, as well as some of the top brands for certain backpack models. (Websites open up in new window)

Online Backpack Retailers

Online retailers provide the bulk of available backpack reviews. The quality of these reviews are hit and miss depending on the fairness of comments registered and the actual use of the product in outdoor conditions prior to the review.

Popular backpack models usually have plenty of reviews to consider, sometimes even reaching hundreds to thousands of reviews for one backpack. Other models do not have any reviews, so decisions may need to be based on the most appropriate features.

Brand Manufacturers

Each brand manufacturer website has pertinent information on most, but not all, product lines and models. Best Backpack Guide prefers to provide consumers with details about company histories and, more importantly, information regarding company policies and practices towards promoting sustainable environments and socially responsible action.

Many backpack brand founders started out as being active participants in outdoor hiking and surfing communities. Their backpack products and accessories were designed to fulfill the requirements of dedicated groups of outdoor enthusiasts with a passion for performanceand active lifestyles.

Today, these early pioneering efforts are still playing vital roles to foster community programs to encourage outdoor recreation, make environmentally-friendly products and contribute to ethical business practices and social and environmental causes.
