ELIZABETH GROESCHEN, EXPLORA:
"The only thing more important than picking the right travel partner (if you’re not flying solo) is picking the right bag. A necessary task on every pre-trip checklist, this is entirely subjective to the person carrying it, as well as to the kind of trip they will be taking. In my case, I needed a bag that could last through a year of travel that would include, but not be limited to, countless flights and cross-country us rides, overnight treks through the mountains of Laos, a camel safari in the Indian desert, a canoe ride across the Nile, sightseeing in France, and the less adventurous days of Spanish classes in Peru."
