The Rossignol Super Galactic Wheelie ($200) travels well in today’s world of strict baggage rules and fees: It’s big enough to consolidate his and her luggage into one bag for a week’s ski trip but not so oversized that it exceeds weight limits when fully packed. The bottom compartment keeps boots in their place, and the rugged construction scoffs at baggage handler abuse. An external zipped pocket for key paperwork, a cinched internal bag for valuables and large inline skate wheels make it a one-bag quiver for the ski traveler. http://www.rossignol.com
