Throughout the pandemic, we'll keep publishing news to help you navigate the state of travel today (like whether travel insurance covers the coronavirus), as well as stories about places for you to put on your bucket list once it's safe to start going more far-flung.

THE SELL: A featherweight roller-backpack carry-on. THE TEST: At 5.4 pounds, the 38-liter TraveLite does indeed weigh roughly two pounds less than similarly sized rollers we tested. The trade-off? Not much. Opened like a book, the main compartment has an internal divider to separate items from the zippered sleeve section. On-the-go articles like passports and shades stash easily in twin external sleeves. And the hideaway backpack straps are perfectly comfortable for short humps. Our only gripe: the smallish wheels couldn't handle rough terrain. But that's what the backpack straps are for, right? THE VERDICT: Perfect for short trips or quick weekend adventures.
Durability: 4
Performance: 5
