The amount of storage is usually denoted by the literage that a rucksack can hold. The larger the litre number the larger the capacity as you would expect. This ranges from the smaller daysack that goes from 10 to 25 to the larger longer camping models that go up to 75.

They are also more inclined to have compartments for the storage of other items such as technology pieces and water bottle holders.
