Sandqvist Stig Backpack, £90

The horror of coming out of the sea and forgetting where you left your stuff is a distant memory with this bright canvas backpack from the Nordic designer. In blazing yellow, it doesn't exactly blend in, but that's all part of the fun.

Carhartt Tramp Backpack, £115

Using your rucksack as camouflage when trekking through the jungle is always a wise idea. Thankfully, this Carhartt backpack looks equally at home on a paradise beach too, and is roomy enough to carry all your survival essentials.

ASOS suede backpack, £45

Suede doesn't make the best beach companion (unless you actually listen to all that advice about spraying it with waterproof protector beforehand), but keep it out of the water and this trendy grey and leather pack looks seriously hot on the beach.
