Pack it up and head out

Whether you’re biking across campus or chasing sunrise in the backcountry, the right bag makes all the difference. Bring everything you need with daypacks, packing cubes, school bags, and backcountry packs from favourite brands like MEC Label, Patagonia, Osprey, Cotopaxi and more.

Streamline your packing system

Accessories like packing cubes and waist packs give you easy access to your most-used items. Wallet and keys? Wear ‘em with a hip pack. Camp toiletries? Pick out packing cubes. Looks like rain? There’s a dry bag for that. Having a system can save you space (and stress) by keeping you organized on-the-go – but knowing how to pack a backpack is half the battle.

How to find your fit

Where are you headed? That’s the first question when it comes to deciding on the right bag for you. Planning on seeing some viewpoints? Then you’re going to want to start with a daypack with room for a water reservoir. Hostel-hopping through Europe or exploring the Juan de Fuca Trail would call for a bigger pack (think 50–60L) that can haul your essentials.
