Skipping the luxury hotels and searching for the "real" experiences in international travel, you need a pack that's going to stand up to a beating. The Waypoint 80 is built tough and won't break down in the middle of the journey. The hip belt and harness adjust to a wide range of sizes, plus they zip off and tuck behind the backpanel, making for an easier shape for transporting. A dual lockable zippered front panel opens extremely wide so you can check thru all of your main compartment storage and not have to pull everything out. There's a detachable day pack for those quick side trips and the StraightJacket compression system keeps it securley held together. Sleeping pad straps on the bottom give you the ability to add on a pad and hit the road.
