Tired of rooting around in a Dopp kit? The Crossover 2’s wide opening allows you to see everything at once. (The lid also snaps around towel bars for hanging.) A pair of water-resistant pockets keep liquids quarantined, while small mesh ­pouches hold sundries.

Roomy enough for a ski helmet but small enough to still rate as a carry-on, the Duplex is full of features, including internal compression straps and a laptop sleeve. It also splits into a duffel and a daypack, so you can slot it into whatever space is left in the overhead.
