Wildcraft is synonymous with adventure and trekking gear, so it was no surprise that they came out with a range of college and corporate friendly backpacks that are equally handy and stylish. Gaurav Dublish, the Director at Wildcraft shared some useful tips on choosing the right backpack for your situation:

For the working professional: Gaurav suggests compact backpacks in black for work. Bags that are lightweight like those designed by Wildcraft are perfect for men and women.  Make sure that the shoulder straps are wide and padded so that they distribute the weight evenly. Look for interiors with a laptop sleeve and separate compartments for files and gadgets like chargers etc.

For the adventurer: Those who intend to travel can choose adjustable rucksacks based on their requirements. Weekend adventurers can go for bags with a capacity of 20 – 30litres, while week-long retreats require bags of 60 – 70 litres. Rucksacks with adjustable belts are great for compressing the bag into a compact shape. Choose one that is lightweight, waterproof and preferably in a dark shade like brown or olive so that it does not look soiled too soon.
