Top 6 Backpacks for Women


Even women who have no intention of camping on their honeymoon may want to consider using a backpack. While some women prefer carrying a backpack to a handbag, others may want a backpack just for a day hike. What do women keep in a travel backpack? Snacks, travel guides, a change of clothes or shoes, travel documents -- and perhaps a small tablecloth, bottle of wine and opener, cheese, and other fixings for an impromptu (and very romantic) outdoor picnic.
