The beauty of the 3,050-cubic-inch Backtrack is its versatility—it’s a shoulder bag, a suitcase-style hauler, and a backpack with a detachable daypack—which we enjoyed on backroad rambles in Colorado. Deploy the adjustable suspension and head out with a week’s worth of goods bundled with dual compression straps. The removable two-compartment daypack bumps up the volume by 735 cubes and pulls double duty as a carry-on during flights. Extra outdoor cred comes courtesy of exterior bottle holders and a zippered suspension cover, which doubles as a fully functional rain cover with drain holes. 5.1 lbs; thenorthface.com
