Osprey Waypoint 80 - Luggage: Reviews

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.

TOP TREKKING TAKE-ALONGThe load-compression scheme on this 5,100-cubic-inch convertible hauler progressively cinches your stuff, trash-compactor style. The Waypoint's cushy handle and hidden suspension kept it streamlined and obedient during an eight-hour layover in Frankfurt. When the road ends and the trail begins, deploy the real-deal adjustable suspension and turn this one into a technical backpack with extra carrying capacity via external straps.

Bonus: With carrying handle and bottom padding, the removable daypack doubles as a protective camera bag.

Bummer: After 12,000 air miles and a ten-day train jaunt, the top corners were starting to fray.
