New model for this year (Do not check this option if this model was listed as new in last year's Gear Guide)Fly without the hassle of checked baggage, and keep your valuables, electronics, etc. in sight. The clamshell design of this bag lets you open it wide for easy access. Compartments and pockets for organization include a wrinkle-thwarting mesh pocket and a mesh laptop sleeve with tie down webbing on one side (we suggest a neoprene computer sleeve for increased impact protection).
The whole thing can be carried suitcase-style for looking respectable at borders or making room on crowded shuttle buses. Pull out the tuck-away backpack straps, and it slips easily on your back for longer treks or urban exploration.
