We've selected the best. This article will help you choose the right backpack for you.
When shopping for a bag, the size of the bag should be your first consideration. The majority of backpacks are between 12 and 45 liters. Let's see what backpack is best for you. There are 35-45 liter backpacks, 35 liters for those who want to travel light and 45 L for those who want more. A 35L backpack is sufficient if you need a backpack to take to school or carry your laptop to work. For a day, a backpack should hold 25 liters. Daypacks should hold 12 liters. Are you planning a hiking trip? You should not consider anything less than a 45 liters+ backpack. Even a 25-liter backpack is possible for weekend trips if you're a light packer.

Both your life and your bag need to have a purpose. To ensure that the bag you choose is right for you, you need to know where your life is heading. You will be super annoyed if you carry too much or too little bag. Here's how to find the perfect bag for every occasion and live happily ever thereafter.
This category would be the most important if bags were given a ranking. A new session means a new uniform, class, notebooks, and a NEW BAG. You will be different from your schoolmates if you have a bag that stands out. You want a bag that is trendy, colorful, spacious, and has multiple pockets for books, tiffins, bottles, stationery, and more. If you want to get to school on time, your school bag must be organized better than you.
The approach to laptop bags should be different. They should have a strong look. They should also have sufficient padding to protect your computer. Laptop bags with front pockets that are easily accessible are a game changer. It's hard to describe the joy one feels when they can slip their hands into a pocket and find what they need.
The backpack families' smallest members are cute and very portable.
These daypacks are perfect for trips that last a whole day and you need to have all your essentials within reach. These bags can be used for a whole day, as the name implies. They are large enough to hold all your essentials and small enough to make it easy to transport them. You will love your wardrobe if you add a little colour to your bag.
- Small backpacks
You will find plenty of space to store your essentials in these large backpacks. Perfect size, not too big or too small. You don't always need to bring the whole house with you. Small backpacks are perfect for such occasions. These backpacks are still backpacks but they are a smaller size.
4. Style matters
Happiness is not something you can buy, but you can get a fashionable bag that's almost the same. The above statement may not be agreed with by our mothers. It is important to determine if the backpack matches, enhances, or complements your style before you buy it. Your bag can be an accessory that makes or breaks your look. Don't underestimate the impact a backpack can have on your #OOTD. Be sure to consider the style of the bag in conjunction with current trends. A backpack can make it easy to look stylish at school. When choosing a bag, keep in mind whether the style and print will be relevant for many months. To be trendy and futuristic, the bag must be modern. Don't buy a bag that isn't in fashion.
The bag's material is its heart and soul. Everything depends on the material it is made from. Your bag should reflect your confidence and strength. Nylon is the most popular material for backpacks. Nylon is tough and durable, and it's waterproof. It's also very convenient for hiking and trekking. After nylon, denim is also very popular. It is extremely lightweight. The bag should be simple and ergonomic, but also designed with comfort in mind.
6. Compartments and pockets
You can organise your stuff more efficiently by having pockets and compartments. It's easy to lose your stuff in your backpack if you don't have compartments and pockets. You can ensure your laptop's safety by using a different pocket. Different compartments make it easy to find things and simplify the process. When you have an urgent need for something, keeping everything in one place can make you feel depressed. A well-made backpack will have plenty of zipper pockets and convenient compartments. At school, for example, there are many things that need to be carried, such as stationery, books, tiffins, and water bottles. It's easy to identify each category in the backpack and make sure everything is organized.
Two things are important to consider when weighing a bag. The bag's weight and the bag itself are important factors. Both a and b are important when planning long trips. However, b is more important for shorter trips or daily commitments. You can always try on a backpack before you buy it online. This will help you to gauge how much weight it can carry. A backpack packed with stuff should not weigh more that 20% of your body weight. A hiking backpack shouldn't weigh more than 10% of your body weight, as you will be carrying it with you most of the time.
8. Water resistance
The primary function of your bag is to protect the contents it holds. The bag must be strong enough to protect what it carries. Water-resistant bags are essential. The bag will be exposed to all elements and should not be stressed when you are out. You can feel confident while taking your bag on long trips or for uncertain treks, regardless of whether it is exposed to the sun or heavy rains. The best backpacks are waterproof and won't fade from the sun. Backpackers who travel on adventure will carry their most essential gears in their backpack. These backpacks must protect everything from water. Waterproof backpacks are made with a lot more padding, which helps you organize and gives you a lot more space.
Good backpacks should have padded shoulders, backs and shoulders. Padding provides more comfort and ease of travel. When checking out the padding, remember that thicker padded straps offer support and comfort. Mesh straps allow for better ventilation and flexibility while thin padding offers greater flexibility.
President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday said that the northeastern region is the natural gateway for India to southeast Asia and beyond.
Addressing the valedictory function of the week-long North East Festival here, he said that with over 5,300 km of international borders, the region has significant strategic value.
"With the launch of the Look East Policy, the security-centric approach towards neighbours in the east gave way to a prioritising of economic issues for benefiting from the common potential for economic growth across the region. In 2014, the LEP was upgraded to the Act East Policy which brought about a paradigm shift and marked a significant change in the potential role of the region," he said.
The North East Festival was organised by the Union Ministry of Development of North Easten Region as a part of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
Kovind said that he was impressed by their spirit of "Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahi"! The northeast region was second to none when it came to joining the struggle for freedom, he added.
The President said that when our nation won Independence, the northeastern region was vastly different from what it is today.
"Initially, this region had suffered hugely because of partition of India, as it found itself suddenly cut off from major centres of communications, education and trade and commerce such as Dhaka and Kolkata."
He noted that the only corridor connecting the northeast and the rest of the country was a narrow strip of land in the north West Bengal, making it challenging to support developmental initiatives in the region.
Stressing that the region has immense inherent strengths, the President said that what it offers in terms of tourism, horticulture, handloom and sports is often unique. He said that efforts are needed now to place the northeastern states on par with the industrially advanced states so that more jobs are created here.
Recognising this need, the government is working with the states to improve their Ease of Doing Business parameters and to facilitate the flow of private investments into the northeast, Kovind said.
The President said that this region is part of the Himalaya and Indo-Burma bio-diversity hotspots - the two of 25 such hotspots in the world.
Assam Governor Prof. Jagdish Mukhi, Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal among others were present in the function, held at the Srimanta Sankaradeva Kalakshetra here.
The Ministry of Civil Aviation has approved five Srinagar-Sharjah flights per week on a regular basis, officials said on Friday.
J&K Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that regular flight service between Srinagar and Sharjah will help boost trade and tourism in the region.
Pertinently, the direct air link between the Valley and the UAE was revived after 11 years in October last year, and the facility has immense potential to strengthen J&K's ties with the Gulf region, creating market linkages and enabling direct export of J&K's agriculture, horticulture and handicraft products.
The UT administration has taken several steps to ensure that air traffic to the Jammu and Srinagar airports grows unhindered in the future.
The Jammu airport recently achieved a milestone by recording the highest ever footfall of 1.54 lakh passengers in March on 1,346 flights.
Similarly, more than 5,85,653 tourists have visited the Kashmir Valley between January and April 27, which is five times more than last year's figures of 1.26 lakh during the same period.
The global tourism industry is expected to create almost 126 million jobs worldwide within 10 years, the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) said in a report released on Thursday in the Philippine capital.
The WTTC's latest Economic Impact Report (EIR) says the travel and tourism sector will be a driving force of the global economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, reports Xinhua news agency.
The report forecasts that the travel and tourism sector's GDP will grow at an average rate of 5.8 per cent annually between 2022 and 2032, outstripping the growth rate for the global economy, to reach $14.6 trillion, equivalent to 11.3 per cent of the total global economy.
WTTC President and CEO Julia Simpson said at the Global Tourism Summit in Manila that "one in three of every new job created will be related to the sector".
The report predicts that the travel and tourism sector across Asia and the Pacific region will rebound significantly and is estimated to create almost 77 million new jobs over the next decade.
At the same time, the sector's contribution to regional gross domestic product (GDP) is forecast to grow at an average annual rate of 8.5 per cent between 2022 and 2032, faster than the region's overall economic growth.
The report also shows that global travel and tourism GDP could reach pre-pandemic levels by 2023, just 0.1 per cent below 2019.
"This will be matched by a boost in travel and tourism employment, which is expected to approach 2019 levels in 2023, only 2.7 per cent below," Simpson added.
According to the WTTC, the global tourism sector started recovering in 2021 when its contribution to GDP climbed by 21.7 per cent year on year to reach more than $5.8 trillion.

After selecting a new buyer for Air India, the Central government has accelerated the process of handing out luxury hotels belonging to the ITDC on a long-term lease of around 40 to 60 years, industry insiders said.
The details of the plan have been kept under the wraps even as an inter-ministerial panel has completed the consultation process on the issue. As per industry sources, a draft note has been circulated on the matter and the likely lessee will be selected soon based on a bidding process.
However, it is not known if all the Ashok Group of Hotels which are 100 per cent owned by the India Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) will be leased via a single bidding process.
At present, ITDC has a network of three Ashok Group of Hotels and one joint venture hotel, amongst other properties. Nevertheless, it is certain, said industry insiders, that The Ashok, New Delhi will be the first one off the blocks. The hotel is amongst assets of the ITDC which are slated to be leased-out under the National Monetisation Pipeline.
It is widely speculated that the new lessee will be allowed to convert a part of the property by introducing service apartments as well as a new and enlarged retail space amongst other facilities.
A landmark property, The Ashok is spread over a 25-acre area next to the diplomatic enclave of Chanakyapuri in Lutyens' Delhi. It was Prime Minister Jawarahlal Nehru, who ordered the construction of the hotel to host a UNESCO conference in 1956.
Interestingly, several royals of erstwhile princely states at that time played a part in the development of the project with land donations coming from Prince Regent of Jammu and Kashmir, Karan Singh amongst others.
Heathrow airport has warned that air travel may not recover to pre-Covid levels until 2026 despite improving passenger numbers in the past three months, as it reported that losses since the start of the pandemic have reached £3.4bn, The Guardian reported.
The airport said international travel could be "on the cusp of a recovery" but it faced a "long road ahead", the report said.
Heathrow reported its first quarter of passenger growth since the start of the pandemic as the loosening of restrictions begins to unleash pent-up demand.
Heathrow reported a loss of just over £1bn for the nine months to the end of September, compared with a loss of £786m in the same months last year. The company warned in its results announcement that traffic may not recover fully for up to five years, the report added.
John Holland-Kaye, the Heathrow chief executive, said the UK was "on the cusp of a recovery which will unleash pent-up demand, create new quality jobs and see Britain's trade roar back to life... But it risks a hard landing unless secured for the long haul."
Passenger numbers in the three months to the end of September recovered to 28 per cent of pre-pandemic levels, while cargo climbed to 90 per cent of its levels in the equivalent period in 2019.
Despite the increase in recent months, Heathrow's losses have grown over the year as a whole. Passenger numbers for the first nine months reached 10.2 million, compared with 19 million for the same period last year, the report said.
Ayodhya, Aug 22 (IANS) Ayodhya, which is all set to be catapulted onto the world tourist map, will soon have a high-speed train between Delhi and Ayodhya.
