The Best Running Backpack For Every Kind Of Runner

What running backpack should I buy for outdoor activity


When it comes to choosing a backpack for running, the options are endless, depending on your need. If it’s a ultramarathon, you’ll want a minimalist vest to carry gels, fluids and snacks. If you’re planning on adding a run commute or two to your weekly mileage, you’ll probably want something more substantial to carry all the essentials.

Three parts of  choosing the best running backpack:


How much do you need to carry with you? If you’re run-commuting, you’re going to need to carry work clothes, toiletries and other essentials. Whereas if you’re racing, you probably want to carry only the absolute bare necessities. A capacity of around 20 litres is a good starting point if you need to carry a fair amount of kit, whereas if you’re aiming to stay light and fast, look for packs of around 10L and under.


In a nutshell, you’ll want to look at the straps of the bag – you’ll need one with shoulder, chest and waist straps in order to run comfortably. The shoulder straps should be padded and wide enough to distribute weight evenly (thin straps often dig in and rub), the chest strap should be able to be moved up and down (especially important for female runners) and all the straps need to be adjustable.


There’s no point carrying a change of clothes if they’re going to be a soggy mess by the time you reach your destination. Look for fabric that is at least water resistant and will keep out the worst of the rain if the weather turns. The fabric should also be tough, with reinforced seams and the ability to withstand carrying heavier loads or being slung on hard or rough surfaces such as your car boot. For extra comfort, wicking fabric at the back of the pack will help moisture evaporate and reduce the risk of heat, irritation and rubbing.
