Backpack Travel Store exists to help you see the world. We are here to give you the products and the confidence to travel anywhere in the world. We believe that travel among the people, rather than secluded in a tourist bubble, is one of life’s great joys.

Unlike the big adventure stores, we don't sell canoes or climbing ropes. Everything we offer is geared specifically to keep your travels lightweight, mobile and organized. Whether it’s a roll-up toiletries kit, paper-thin shampoo sheets, packing cubes or a super lightweight travel backpack, our products make it possible, easier and more fun to travel anywhere.

All of our packs and accessories are geared specifically toward independent backpack travelers. Everything is as lightweight and compact as we've been able to find on the market and the travel backpacks have features designed to make travel easier.

BackpackTravelStore.com was founded by and for international backpack travelers. Anyone who has hitchhiked through Asia, traipsed around Eastern Europe or made their way from Machu Picchu to Terra Del Fuego knows the joys of backpack travel. We put in one place everything you need to see and experience the world.

So take a look around, pick out you need and get out there! We also want to hear your suggestions, so say hello at the Contact Us page.
