TOP TREKKING TAKE-ALONGThe load-compression scheme on this 5,100-cubic-inch convertible hauler progressively cinches your stuff, trash-compactor style. The Waypoint's cushy handle and hidden suspension kept it streamlined and obedient during an eight-hour layover in Frankfurt. When the road ends and the trail begins, deploy the real-deal adjustable suspension and turn this one into a technical backpack with extra carrying capacity via external straps.

Bonus: With carrying handle and bottom padding, the removable daypack doubles as a protective camera bag.

Bummer: After 12,000 air miles and a ten-day train jaunt, the top corners were starting to fray.
