I’m obsessed with lightweight travel and have been using Osprey packs and daypacks for years. I also think they’re very much worth recommending for school, hiking, outdoor sports, shopping, carrying gear for work, and more. I’m now here with my tiny team of researchers and adventurers to help you decide which of the wide range …

For years we’ve been travelling with and recommending a few key Osprey pieces. And we think it’s important to travel with a daypack; they serve to keep key valuables close at hand while in transit as well as to accompany us on long city or countryside daytime outings.

Our combined decades of travel have led us to delight in the convenience of a small, light backpack that we can also roll. We’ve thus been carefully examining and reviewing rolling backpacks for the past several years and constantly updating this article as we try out bags and analyze brand reliability results from consumer testing …

We’ve been reviewing rolling travel backpacks for years, and so we were jazzed about the release of the Eagle Creek Expanse Convertible International Carry-On, and about comparing it to our favorite similar offering from Osprey, the Ozone Convertible 22″/50L. Eagle Creek is a trusted and reliable manufacturer of quality gear, and is known for its great …

We’ve been taking long trips around Brazil for years, and boy, the dumb things we’ve seen our fellow gringos carrying. I suppose it’s hard to know what to pack for Brazil, but heavy clothes, wheeled oversize plastic suitcases, fancy watches — these are all asking for trouble in various ways. The ideal packing checklist for …

Sometimes we need to hop our luggage up on our backs, but when we can we prefer to roll it around. So what’s better?A dedicated wheeled backpack, or a backpacker’s pack accompanied by a separate, foldable cart? We ran a full analysis of the options. We’ve previously run comparisons on some top wheeled carry-on backpacks …
