Below 20L: Backpacks of less than 20L are usually used for short-distance outdoor activities, such as short-distance cycling and trail running, and can be used for half a day to a day.

20L daypack

20-35L: A daypack is suitable for travel and outdoor hiking, but can only use for 1-2 days’ travel. This capacity range is also the most commonly used size.

35-50L: Professional outdoor backpack supports long-distance travel and can support about 3 days. A lot of things can be loaded. Capacity and functional partition and other indicators can be pulled full. However, this capacity range is a bit too large for short distance activities and is not recommended.

50-65L: Large outdoor backpack, which is suitable for long distance activities, can support 3-7 days of use. Due to the large capacity and heavy weight when fully loaded, this class of backpack must be equipped with a good ergonomic design.
