The Timbuk2 Wander Pack is very nearly a perfect travel backpack. The things it does right, with its supremely efficient use of space and well-designed small details, make it hard to beat. If Timbuk2 would update the design to include a hip belt, reengineer how the shoulder straps lock in place, and attach the sternum strap to the shoulder straps, the Wander Pack would be second to none.
