There is more innovation in travel gear than you might think. And traveling is annoying enough without a good setup. The fabrics are getting stronger, the pockets more clever for all our gadgets…which is why we test and then report on the best car-top cargo boxes for proper road tripping. From top duffel bags to backpacks to the best carry-on bags, we purchase every item we review, just like you, and then our expert testers pit all the models against each other, producing the best side-by-side reviews in the business. We only publish 100% unbiased reviews you can trust.
