How to measure the volume of a backpack?

The modern world is unthinkable without such a universal thing as a backpack. The accessory for carrying things is used by athletes, tourists, travelers, business people. The main advantages are the capacity of the product corresponding to the purpose of use and freedom of hands.

Manufacturers offer backpacks for all occasions, so there is no problem with the choice. It is only necessary to decide on the purposes of use. There are backpacks for hiking and travel, as well as urban models. Most often, the accessory is selected by capacity. This criterion is called displacement (the volume of the backpack in liters, cubic meters). Usually, the manufacturer indicates the volume directly on his product in the form of embroidery next to the very name of the model. However, sometimes you have to double-check the volume so as not to be mistaken when preparing to use the services of air carriers or you need to choose a backpack for a hiking trip to confidently fit all your equipment.

Independent determination of the volume of the backpack

The easiest way is to multiply the manually measured overall dimensions of the thing:

  • height;
  • width;
  • depths.

In addition, you can calculate the volume using improvised means: water, sand, ball filler. We put a tight plastic bag in the backpack and fill it with water or sand measured in liter cans. Note that with this method of measurement, the valve, pockets, other compartments are not taken into account, that is, the calculations will have errors. The volume calculated using balls with a known volume will turn out to be more accurate, since the filler can be poured into all the compartments in the product without any problems.

When preparing for a “outing”, carefully select an accessory according to the size, shape, material used, and the presence of internal and external compartments convenient for packing.
