DOUBLE-DUTY HAULER

Mountaineering boots, crampons, ice ax, backpack, and so much more gear for a climb on Mexico's El Pico de Orizaba were gobbled up by this simple yet ingenious two-for-one luggage solution. Fully loaded, the 7,300-cube monster rig rolls like a stalwart SUV with a cargo box up top. The foundation is a single, cavernous compartment with burly wheels, dual grips, and retractable handle. The upper bag is of a similar size, with three fully padded, zippered compartments and as many handles. Schlepping more than 50 pounds? Circumvent overweight charges by separating the duo. 10 lbs; dakine.com
