The first thing I have considered when buying my backpack is the length of my trip, where I am going, and my personal style of travel.
I sharing my experience with you , what Things You Have to Consider When Buying a Backpack.
Consider Your Purpose :
Do you often need moving from place to place? Will you remain travel for long periods of time? If yes, and you are confident that you can carry (on your back) all of your baggage, there are specific traveling backpacks available for you, but often hiking backpacks are used as well as my backpack.
Consider Cost of Backpack:
One thing keep in mind that there can be a direct link between price and product quality. Some backpacks cost as little as $50-$100, while a mid-range backpack that costs $100 – $200 will go well with most travelers’ needs.
Consider Size of Backpack.
When buying a backpack, you have to analyze the physical size of it (empty, and full). Is it a hard frame, or collapsible? Is it fit for the size regulations of airlines when it’s fully expanded? Make sure that the backpack is big enough to carry your things, but not too big and bulky that it becomes a trouble and burden for you.

Specific Travel Backpack: These packs are normally made to walk very short distances. This type of a backpack may carry heavier amounts of weight than a hiking backpack.
Wheeled Backpack: It is very hard and burden for you to carry a bag on your back all the day. So you might want to consider a wheeled backpack to bear some weight with your hand easily. It includes a handy set of wheels as well as backpack straps. One of my backpacks is wheeled.
Day Pack: If you need only large enough to carry, you may want to consider a day pack.
