Different adventures calls for different gears. A stroll on the beach may not require the same heavy duty luggage one would use in an exhilarating hike up Mt. Makiling.
We've selected the different kinds of packs for different kinds of getaways this summer. Good looking and handy, these bags will surely make your perfect vacation even more perfect.
1) The body bag
If you’re packing light, this hand or body textile is perfect for you. Grab it by the handle when you’re rocking a wrinkle-free ensemble, or use it as a shoulder bag for a more laid-back look.

2) The backpack
When it comes to functionality, a durable canvas pack can handle all the elements. Planning to stay overnight in the beach? Go with this tropical-themed backpack, says fashion stylist JM Sta. Ana.

4) The haversack
Planning a trip to some of our recommended outdoor destinations? This Borealis sack is the perfect travel buddy for the nature boy in you.
"Obviously, you won't feel comfortable when you go mountain climbing while using a duffel or body bag," observes JM. "A backpack is highly recommended kasi kailangan free 'yung hands mo para makahawak ka ng maayos. Just make sure that it's the right size for your body type so it wouldn't look bulky."

5) The suave traveler
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: You can never go wrong with black. This nylon backpack accented by faux leather buckles is both sleek and rugged from any angle. Aside from storing a weekend's worth of items neatly with its impressive compartment space, this rucksack also makes sure you’re never out of style. From easy-going pieces to smart casual ensembles, you'll be able to pair almost anything with this baby.

6) The overnighter
This simple black-and-blue overnighter is simple and practical and has lots of pockets to help you organize your stuff. Given its features, Sta. Ana says "it would be handy whether you go on a beach trip or camping."

7) The trolley
Hopping on a plane for a week-long break? Sta. Ana says a trolley is the best option when you're going somewhere far like Boracay or Hong Kong. "Pack lightly even though you're using a roller. You wouldn't want to look like you're hauling tons of stuff around," she adds.
