It’s water-resistant, shred-resistant, and durable. It fits in ton of stuff inside and keeps it organized with two straps and two zippered pockets. Outside, four straps can be cinched when you’re traveling light or loosened when you need more room. A telescoping pull-handle and smooth, silent wheels ensure this will be as much of a pleasure to travel with as it is to pack.
