TOWN AND COUNTRY
On a quick trip to Vegas, this bag pulled double duty during a long weekend of outdoor adventure coupled with deluxe digs. Despite its brawny skid plate and oversize hollow wheels, its sleek and inconspicuous design didn't blow our cover rolling through the Ritz-Carlton's lobby. Later, on an off-road excursion to Red Rock Canyon, the tough compression-molded exterior survived bouncing around in the back of the truck without coming out bruised. With 4,000 cubic inches of cargo space, including a removable garment bag and no fewer than five mesh sleeves and pouches for essential items, there's plenty of room for both urban wear and adventure gear. eaglecreek.com
Bonus: Always come home with more than you brought? You'll love the expandable main compartment, which increases volume by 21 percent.
Bummer: You pay a premium for the versatility.
