High Sierra AT3 32

This world beater survived a 20-bag squashfest trucking over 13,000-foot passes in Bhutan, never blowing a seam or busting an axle. The kicker? Back home, we marveled that fragile, wooden treasures from the world's last Buddhist kingdom made the journey unscathed. The cavernous 8,360-cubic-inch interior has upstairs and downstairs compartments that segregate burnable from wearable laundry. To go boffo big, unzip the dividing panel and expand the duffel an extra two inches with a gusset zipper. When fully loaded, this wheeled giant still rolls along well, and hidden backpack straps make short off-road forays doable. www.highsierrasport.com

Bonus: Ergonomic zippers provide a firm no-slip grip when subduing fat loads.

Bummer: Sticky wheels still wouldn't free-spin after a lube job.
