Carry all of the essentials along on a trek with a canvas backpack. A backpack needs to be tough enough not only to protect what is inside, but also to bear the full weight of it on the straps. Cotton canvas is a tough, rugged material that can endure most heavy loads with ease. Canvas also has the advantage of faded chic—the older and more worn it gets, the more character your backpack will have. Find great backpacks in canvas from Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren, LRG and others.
Canvas is an excellent material for a military-inspired backpack. Packs in this style feature an usual shape for a backpack, and echo the form and function of soldiers' packs. Military-inspired backpacks often feature stylish details like faded name plate areas and worn stenciled lettering. These backpacks are often much larger than the standard shape and design, making them an excellent choice for road trips and camping trips.
More often than not, a military-inspired design is also a cargo pocket backpack. In addition to the spacious main compartment, these packs have several roomy pockets on the outside. Cargo pockets are similar to those found on cargo pants, complete with flap closure tops, and they usually have straps to fasten them shut. Cargo pockets are handy for travelers to keep essentials in, such as cell phones, to pull out in a hurry without digging through the main compartment's contents.
When it comes to military-inspired fashion, an olive green backpack will be right at home. A canvas backpack in olive green closely resembles actual military packs, and will look super stylish when worn with cargo pants and military-style button up shirts. Prefer patterns? A camouflage backpack in canvas provides the same soldier flair in green, but also in mottled shades of grey and brown. Camouflage is the perfect match for khaki or black cargo pants.
