The Perfect Festival Man Bags

Festival season is officially upon us and that means long days spent in the sun. It’s super important to stay hydrated, reapply sunscreen, eat, bring a blanket and maybe even pack a book for the commute. Basically, there are lots of things you need bring with you and it’s a great idea to have a cool bag to keep all of that stuff in. Us ladies are lucky – I don’t know about the women in your life, but most of the ones I know have at least a few large bags that are perfect for a situation that calls for toting a lot of stuff. But when you’re a guy, finding the right balance between fun and functional when it comes to bags can be a little difficult. A clear choice, especially for a festival where you want to keep your hands free for lots of fist pumping and dancing, is the ever-reliable backpack. You can load everything into it, and still have room for the occasional merch purchase. There are so many cool backpacks to choose from, whether you’re into prints, bold colours, or a classic leather look. Backpacks can be a great way to express your individuality, putting the fun back in function. There’s no reason why you should be resorting to a reusable grocery tote, or even a straight up grocery bag when there’s such a diverse range of choices just waiting for you to discover. We’ve selected a few to get you started on the hunt for the perfect festival backpack that you’ll definitely want to wear well after the season ends.
