The flagship piece of Thule's new line of luggage is impressive. After we intentionally mistreated it on a monthlong African safari circuit, the 60L's weather-shedding nylon-fabric hide looked practically brand-new, while the oversize polyurethane wheels spun as effortlessly as ever. Inside the main compartment, two mesh side sleeves divvy up the little things, and we loved the crushproof, lockable, and removable top compartment: it's just big enough for a few gadgets and your shades. But it was the detachable 11-liter daypack that sealed the deal. Its minimalist shoulder and lumbar pads are surprisingly comfy, even with a bulky DSLR and 400mm lens along for the ride. For a new player in a crowded field—bravo!               Durability: 5 (out of 5)
