Cool, Trendy, Modern Rucksack Backpack Men - 6 Types of Rucksack
If you are one of those who want to know the difference between a “rucksack” and a “backpack,” here’s your answer. If you take a look at Wikipedia, the two terms are basically the same. But if you dig deeper, the term “rucksack” is more commonly used in the UK and “backpack” is used more in the US.

Some people, though, don’t like to settle with this. To them, “rucksack” is more of a traveler’s buddy, while a backpack can be something you can take with you on a casual day. There are some features that rucksacks have that you can’t find in an ordinary backpack. For instance, rucksacks have more compartments to easily store things you need when traveling such as a water bottle and a canteen.

Aside from that, to some people, the mere mention of the word “rucksack” gives them images of soldiers in their haversack. Here are six different types of rucksack backpack men.
