A spacious but compact carry-on duffel that quickly converts into a backpack. Small but mighty, the Navigator Duffel packs a massive punch. Toted by the handles or packed on the back, the Navigator is compact but surprisingly spacious and its sophisticated styling that works downtown or way out of town. The Timbuk2 team has tested it on weekend jaunts to Los Angeles and ten day treks across Asia, and managed to look prepared and presentable in both cases. The backpack straps easily clip in for a secure carry and are a cinch to tuck away when you don't need them.
The large internal main compartment is wide and long enough for a range of clothing, even fitting a 15" laptop. The two external zipper pockets provide excellent areas for compressing underwear, down items, or power bricks and dongles. And the bottom zipper compartment holds magazines, shoes, or boarding passes, and magically doubles as an envelope for stuffing and storing the whole duffel. Who doesn't need an amazing navigator in their life? This bag is too large to be carried on; it will need to be checked.
