What should you look for when choosing your backpack?
What distinguishes a women's backpack from a men's backpack?
Ergonomics and comfort play an important role in a backpack - whether for women or men. Therefore, women's backpacks differ from men's backpacks mainly in their size, fit and carrying systems. On average, women are smaller than men and the ratio of leg length to back length is different. Therefore, a women's backpack should have a shorter back. The carrying straps should be narrower and have a strong S-shape because of the narrower shoulders. A chest strap, if any, should be set higher than on a men's backpack. Hip straps are usually more padded and placed to distribute weight well on the usually wider hip bones. In the case of backpacks for everyday use or the office, of course, other criteria such as a laptop compartment or even just the chic appearance play a role.
Which ladies backpack is suitable for me?
To find out which women's backpack is suitable for you, several individual factors play a role.
First, it is important to be clear about the occasion for which you need a women's backpack. You have a wide selection of models in different sizes and made of different materials. Depending on the occasion, you can choose a suitable backpack.
If you have narrowed down the selection by occasion, it also depends on your personal body size and shape, which ladies backpack is suitable for you. When buying, make sure that the size of the backpack fits your back perfectly. The carrying system can usually be modified and adapted to individual circumstances.
To test whether a backpack fits you, you should fill it as heavy as possible and then wear it on your back for a while. You will instinctively feel if it fits properly. Large travel backpacks or hiking backpacks for women, for example, should always sit in such a way that part of the weight is transferred to the hips. Therefore, the straps must be at an optimal height, especially there.
Smaller backpacks for everyday use do not necessarily have to fit perfectly against the back. But they shouldn't cut in or pinch anywhere either and should be comfortable to wear overall.
