Choose the best backpack picnic set for your next outdoor adventure.
The sun is shining, the weather is heating up and with lockdowns lifting, there’s never been a better time to plan a picnic with friends or family. Gone are the days of soggy sandwiches, spillages and trying to carry a million items to make sure you’re sorted for your day out. Nope, now there are some seriously fancy new ways to picnic. My favourite invention of all? The backpack picnic set!
Once upon a time people lugged heavy picnic hampers, with handles that dug into your hands all the way from cars to parks and beaches. Ok I’ll admit they look cute, but it was pretty tiring for whoever got the short straw of carrying it!
Thankfully, the traditional picnic basket has had a much-needed upgrade. Say hello to the genius invention of the backpack picnic set. It looks like a backpack but zip it open and you’ll see it has lots of clever compartments inside.
These picnic backpacks are super portable with comfortable padded straps and a roomy interior. Inside you’ll find everything from stainless steel cutlery to insulated wine holders and waterproof cooler compartments.
It’s Picnic Time!
Most of the options below are 4 person picnic backpacks, with ample cutlery and crockery for a family picnic. Many have handy attachments, such as fleece blankets with waterproof bases and insulated bottle holders to keep your wine cool for your day in the sunshine.
Some are cute and stylish, others are really practical, so take a look at my full list of recommendations before you choose your preferred backpack picnic set. Once you’ve bought one, you’ll never go back to your old picnic basket, no matter how cute it looked!
It’s worth noting that these are amazing gifts for friends or family who love camping or the great outdoors, and would also make the perfect wedding present – what could be more romantic than a picnic?!
So whether you’re planning a trip to the beach or a picnic in Hyde Park, I hope this guide helps you find the perfect picnic backpack for your outdoor adventure.
