BEST FOR: Organized living. THE TEST: The 58-liter Savant was obviously designed by folks who spend a lot of time living out of a pack. A big front zipper panel made for quick entry, and the array of accessory pockets—five in all, including a roll-top lid and externally accessed hydration sleeve—never felt like overkill. That type of organization comes in handy when fishing out lunch mid-hike, but we liked it even more when the Savant was pulling double duty as our travel pack: it’s just wide enough that you can lay dress shirts flat. THE VERDICT: It’s not just about order. The Savant’s cushy suspension system earned high marks across the board. Just make sure it fits you right—the shoulder straps are fixed, so you can’t adjust the torso length. 3.4 lbs
