T+L Reports: Rough Riding Luggage
Published: April 2009
Merrell's ergonomic shoes now have a sturdy bag to match. The Chameleon Full Wheelie ($230; www.merrell.com) was designed with the weekend warrior in mind: a nylon shell prevents precious cargo from getting smashed; the internal "mudroom" is perforated to allow hiking gear to ventilate; an outside pocket provides easy access to airline tickets. For serious off-roaders, wheels are made of durable rubber, able to withstand the most rugged terrain.
