When you need a reliable rucksack, look to the sturdy designs in this collection from Osprey. The brand produces trustworthy bags that are ideal for trekking into town - or across the world's mountains.

Osprey: travel backpacks for hardy journeys

Hard-wearing bags with room for your hiking-trip essentials are part of this brand's DNA. Keep an eye out for attached fastenings to carry your tools, whether that's ski poles or ice picks. Integrated rain covers mean you won't get caught out in a shower, while front and side pockets give easy access to your water bottle and energy snacks when you're on the go. Top loader styles from Osprey are ace for better organisation of your belongings, helping to achieve optimum weight distribution. Look out for rucksacks featuring chest straps and hip belts to put less strain on your back - ensure you're kitted out with sturdy cargo pants and a windbreaker, too.

Your day-to-day errands sorted with Osprey

Smaller bags from Osprey are ideal on days when you're in the city rather than the mountains. Designs usually come with padded shoulder straps for comfort when you need to keep your bag on all day. Look out for mesh backs to minimise perspiration during hotter months - ideal for when you're wearing a colourful T-shirt. Rucksacks from Osprey are sleek and sporty, with minimal embellishment, eye-catching colours and a curved shape. Consider backpacks with laptop compartments and mobile phone pockets for when you're heading out to the co-working café to catch up on some emails.
