BEST FOR: Gear-intensive treks.
THE TEST: There are plenty of big-ass rollers around. What makes this one so great? High-quality construction (beefy zippers, top-shelf materials, and reinforcements at high-stress areas) but also little things like reflective piping for nighttime visibility, lots of haul handles, and (our favorite) a metal-hooked bungee for affixing bulky items like helmets. (It was with great joy that we found that this same hook doubled as a bottle opener.) There’s also a laundry-chute compartment to seal off muddy shoes or wetsuits.
THE VERDICT: Compared with the other big haulers we tried, the Warrior was better built and more user friendly. 8.4 lbs.
