Packs for your favorite traveler.

There’s plenty to be said for ballistic-denier waterproof duffels that you can drag behind a Jeep, up a mountain, and through raging rivers (like Patagonia’s Stormfront, below).

But to avoid looking like a wannabe Conrad Anker on your weekend getaway to Jackson Hole, the other classic waxed-canvas and leather bags here will do just fine. They last a lifetime and fend off rain on a sprint from the cab to the hotel. And you’ll always arrive looking like you know exactly where you’re going.
