A perfect pack for the world traveler, the Border’s best feature is the zip-open laptop packet, which let’s you sail through TSA without having to remove your computer. There’s a front tablet pocket, plentiful interior organization, and of course, it has plush, curved Gregory shoulder straps so it carries like a dream even when stuffed to bursting with carry-on essentials. I’ve used it trotting the globe on trips to Asia, South America, and all over the U.S, and despite massive miles it still looks new. $130; gregorypacks.com
