The Eddie Bauer First Ascent Alchemist 40L is the most versatile pack available, able to transform itself to fit any adventure. In standard configuration, the TPU-coated 40-liter hauler is perfect for day hikes and peak bagging. Looking to escape on a longer trip? It morphs into a 55-liter pack capable of swallowing a multiday trek's worth of gear. [$200; eddiebauer.com]
