BEST FOR: Gear-intensive excursions. THE TEST: A cavernous 140-liter compartment swallows gear up to 34 inches long, like the trekking poles and tripod we packed for rainy Peru. Then came the real test: the chicken bus to Puno, our final destination. After several bumpy, muddy transfers, the Flashpoint’s polyurethane-coated and puncture-proof fabric emerged scuffed and muddy—but intact, with contents dry. And being an Eagle Creek bag, it excels at keeping you organized: there’s a roomy sealed (and seam-taped) external -compartment for mucky gear, and plenty of pockets for quick-grabs like maps, guidebooks, and electronic gizmos. THE VERDICT: Keeps everything orderly and safe—even on multi-week trips. 11.7 lbs

DURABILITY: 4.5
PERFORMANCE: 4.5
