THE SELL: The adventure traveler’s backpack. THE TEST: It’s classic Eagle Creek. There’s every smart feature a traveler could want—anchors for zipper padlocks, a top lid that doubles as a fanny or shoulder pack, even a way to stow the hipbelt and shoulder straps so they don’t get eaten by the luggage carousel. The best part is that it’s a pretty darn good backpack. Though the harness and hipbelt are stiffer and more basic than those of other packs here, they’re easy to adjust and comfortable under globe-trotting loads. THE VERDICT: Perfect for DIY travelers and hostelers who’ll squeeze in a few days in the backcountry. 4.1 lbs
Hauling comfort: 40 pounds
Versatility: 4
