The 65-liter Salta Vita has all the trappings of a good multi-day pack, like a cushy canted waist belt and dedicated hydration pocket. But it's built for travel, with a suitcase-style U-shaped zipper and a nifty backpack-strap stow-away panel that zips over the suspension system when you're flying. One gripe: no duffel strap. 5 lbs.
