This full-sized backpack converts to a suitcase, for checking into respectable hotels and preventing your luggage from being mulched in a conveyor. If you’re really maxed out on gear or souvenirs, you can clip the detachable daypack to your frontside, using the clips on the shoulder straps. You’ll be better balanced and have easier access to the items in the daypack.
