Backpacks and messengers
Reliable all-rounders for business, leisure, and daily use

When we’re on the move and traveling, backpacks and messengers ensure that we have both hands free at all times so we can get ahead more easily. Whether we’re on a bike, Vespa or motorbike, on foot, or even, as often happens with us Swiss, on snowshoes and skis. This feature makes backpacks and messengers extremely likeable companions, but that’s not all they can do, not by a long shot. Think elegant business partner, robust adventurer, trusted companion through life’s ups and downs – all wrapped up in the same package. It really depends on what features are packed into them and what they are being used for at a given time. While color and material are basic characteristics, there are a lot more things to consider when choosing the right backpack and messenger than just these two points. What makes the quality difference in Victorinox backpacks and messengers, how to maximize the comfort level when wearing them, and what to look for when making a purchase, that’s where we need a few more details.

Backpacks, messenger bags, or over-the-shoulder day bags: Choosing the perfect backpack or messenger model is a matter of individual lifestyle and the scope of your planned endeavors. Today’s backpacks have moved light years beyond their previous reputation as lacking in finesse and primarily suited to outdoor pursuits. Their use is no longer limited to backpacking and hiking aficionados, and they now hold impeccable business credentials. Messenger bags may still exude a hint of coolness and dynamic energy due to their origins, though this has more to do with their outer appearance than their internal design, which in fact is extremely structured and well organized. One advantage may be that, like an over-the-shoulder day bag, they often have more of a minimalist look. Those people who tend to suffer from overloading and chaos in their bags could possibly solve this once and for all with the right partner by their side.

Size and weight: What is basically true for all kinds of travel gear and bags takes on greater significance once a suitable backpack has been chosen. Since backpacks are often carried over long distances and in many cases feature a generous volume capacity, the structure, format, and weight of the backpack must be compatible with the wearer’s body size and must feel comfortable to wear at all body contact points. It’s worthwhile to make a comparison test, as well as visiting a store, where you can try some backpacks on and take a few steps with it filled to the maximum load. A helpful tip for daily use: Less is more, and the pros only pack the items they really need.

Contoured back panel and padded adjustable straps: Achieving optimal comfort levels in a backpack is the result of perfect load distribution and ergonomic molding. The latter provide effective padded surface areas, they are gentle on the back and shoulders, and prevent pressure points, abrasion, and sweating. For this reason, it is also important that the shoulder straps on your backpack are not too wide and the length is adjustable.

Seams and zippers: Whether it’s sensitive electronic devices, important documents, or clothing – even if you are using an umbrella, seams and zippers must be able to withstand any weather conditions and should be protected from moisture and dampness under all circumstances. That may seem obvious; however, it is also a question of the finishing quality and capability to cope with extreme conditions. For this specific reason, we have fitted backpacks in the Vx Touring collection, the Rath Slim Backpack, and other selected models in our product range, with special water-repellent zippers in the interior compartment and also on the external pockets.

Victorinox inside: Loops and hooks, daisy chains and TSA security locks, bottle openers and screwdrivers – inspired by our heritage and the Original Swiss Army Knife, we have also taken the technical expertise, handy tools, and smart accessories developed over decades and incorporated them into our backpacks and messengers. The bottle opener we have built into the shoulder straps on some models is just one of many such practical ideas.

Purchase online or at a specialist retailer: It’s clear that a lot of information is now available online and we are also working hard to give detailed descriptions and a full online presentation of all our models. How do I adjust the backpack properly, is it light and comfortable, how does the material and color look, which model best meets my personal needs, and what handy accessories are available – you can get answers to all of these questions plus any specific inquiries you might have, and also enjoy excellent personal service any time you visit one of our Victorinox Flagship Stores.
