For the days when you care more about a moderate amount of storage space, comfort and effortless style than long distance trekking, leisure bags are unbeatable. Whether carrying snacks and a towel to the beach or just toting the essentials for a day out and about on the town, leisure bags provide a complaisant sense of style different from serious hiking or trekking packs. They are available in a range of fashionable fabrics, such as plaid, stripes, geometric prints, tribal-inspired prints and solid colors. Some have drawstring closures while others have zippers or rucksack designs. Paramount brands include Roxy, Billabong, Burton Snowboards, Volcom, Element, Quiksilver and Sitka.
