Whether you‘re an urban adventurer who actually takes advantage of last-minute airfare sales, or you prefer a more organized approach for tackling peaks in Pakistan, the Marmot Rolling Hauler Bag happily goes with the flow. This tough roller-bag bobs and weaves through crowds and tight alleyways better than an NBA point guard, and has a mouth bigger than a great white shark so you can easily squish your stuff into every nook and crany.
Made from 1680D ballistic nylon coated with phthalate-free TPE laminate, this bag weathers the cargo hold of a transcontinental jet or the roof a rickety bus better than your tummy handles the bumps and lumps of travel. A little rain won‘t wash away the week-old dirt from your face, but it might clean up the road-dust off your bag without getting your stuff soaking wet. The large D-shaped zipper opens to reveal a main compartment big enough for either a week of climbing in Yosemite or a few weeks mountaineering in Nepal, depending on what size you get.
Medium or large, both bags sport retractable handles and smooth-rolling custom wheels, so you don‘t hit a snag when racing along the platform for the last train or wiggling your way through throngs of people towards a taxi stand. Reinforced corners bear the brunt of bad driving on your part, and compression straps reduce bag volume when you‘re only going away for the weekend. Once you‘re done with TSA, lock the zippers so you only have to worry about intestinal invaders, not luggage looters.
