SKI - - CONTENTS - By Anais Lewett

OSPREY Trans­porter Wheeled Duf­fel 40

The re­designed Trans­porter duf­fel is meant to carry heavy loads in all types of con­di­tions. Even the small­est ver­sion, the 40L, makes the most of its com­pact size, main­tain­ing a duf­fel shape at­tached to an alu­minum frame. Strong wheels pro­vide ex­tra mo­bil­ity and convenience when you over­stuff it. $240

TRANSPACK Boot Slinger Pro

The Boot Slinger Pro is a side-load­ing boot bag de­signed for pow­der chasers who al­ways ad­here to the golden rule of ski travel. At 33L it’s carry-on size, and while the boots take up most of the main pocket, savvy pack­ers can uti­lize the sur­round­ing space— in­clud­ing a mesh gog­gle pouch and a lap­top sleeve. $180

MYS­TERY RANCH Mis­sion Rover

The ver­sa­tile Mis­sion Rover of­fers three carry meth­ods—suit­case, shoul­der, or back­pack, and has sep­a­rate lap­top, shoe, and cloth­ing com­part­ments to keep things or­ga­nized. Its clamshell open­ing makes for easy ac­cess, and with 45L ca­pac­ity, you won’t have to wran­gle it into the over­head bin. $185

EA­GLE CREEK Global Com­pan­ion Travel Pack 40

This sturdy travel back­pack of­fers com­fort and convenience, with nine smartly placed pock­ets to or­ga­nize ev­ery­thing you need. A but­ter­fly zip­per al­lows the back­pack to open like a suit­case, mak­ing it easy to pack. Sec­ondary com­part­ments let you keep dirty stuff sep­a­rate, or pro­vide ex­tra space for gear. $159

THE NORTH FACE Rolling Thun­der Wheeled Duf­fel 22

The Rolling Thun­der duf­fel comes in three sizes, but the light­weight 22-inch ver­sion fits nicely in the over­head bin. The tough frame opens up to a spa­cious in­te­rior, plus large ex­te­rior pock­ets keep things or­ga­nized. It’s also wa­ter-re­sis­tant and made from TNF’s Base Camp ma­te­rial, so it’s ready to be abused. $269

THULE Subterra Lug­gage 22

This rolling duf­fel comes in carry-on and larger sizes. We love the carry-on, which un­zips into two sep­a­rate bags: a small roller and a duf­fel. A poly­car­bon­ate back panel and durable ex­te­rior keeps your items safe, and over­sized wheels can man­age all types of ter­rain—the kind you might find at moun­tain re­sorts. $ 320
