When YETIs Fly: ‘Crossroads’ Luggage First Look

In the latest evolution for the revolutionary cooler brand, YETI dips its rugged toes into travel.

If anything lives to take a beating, it’s luggage.选中的袋子的粗略离港只能通过他们的粗暴到达。首先,他们被夹在推车上并夹在货物上,只能用砰的一条肮脏的旧传送带滚落。

如果导管磁带在任何地方赚取它,那么旅行者部署它以增加悲伤,殴打旧袋的生活数千英里。

And that’s exactly where YETI saw an opening: to add some muscle to fight back against the abuse all luggage endures. Launching today, the十字路口轮式箱包- 在22尺寸和29英寸尺寸 - 在各个方面的运动围绕,硬碳酸盐背部和700旦尼尔水和耐磨结构。

如果这是不够的,耶利似乎已经采取了其他品牌的组织重点的提示,并装满了各种拉链口袋的十字路口行李箱 - 甚至包括每个包的自己的包装立方体。

We received an advance sample of the big 29-inch checked bag for this first look review. We stuffed, zipped, unzipped, and re-zipped all the pockets, and even stuffed it with clothes, electronics, books, and more.

In short:yei.did what YETI does — built the heck out of something. With its durable (but washable) exterior, theCrossroads 29-inch Luggage应该承受滥用的份额。该袋有口袋加仑,这真的将效用(和理智)添加到长期包装中。

But it borders on overkill and, in the melee of airport travel, you may find yourself scrambling to remember in which of its many pockets you stashed your headphones, book, or ticket. But overall, the Crossroad 29-inch Luggage is as tough as it is stylish. Just brace for the sticker shock.

  • 可拆卸,可维修的轮子
  • 顶级拉链藏袋,用于耳机,太阳镜,袋刀等Quick-Grab项目。

  • Dimensions: 29.5″ (H) x 16.25″ (W) x 11.5″ (D)

The exterior comprises mainly 700-denier nylon, which YETI says was inspired by motorcycle gear. Meanwhile, the entire back of the Crossroads Luggage is hard, structured polycarbonate.

袋子配有四个可拆卸和可调节的带扣带,您可以在主隔间内重新定位,或在袋子的外侧(正面)内重新定位。一个窗口口袋,用于联系方式,以防袋子丢失,坐落在一起。

yei.also advertises the wheels as “fully serviceable.” These connect (and remove) from the bag with Allen screws on each wheel.

Construction

首先,我们几周前收到了十字路口行李,并没有在飞行中拍摄。但我们可以从建筑物中收集一些第一印象。

yei.Crossroads luggage

一,身体建设。我不是一个班车架的扇子,所以我很欣赏雪人700岁尼龙的选择。硬侧行李防止您过度折叠您的包 - 如果您为此付出代价,您应该这样做。它也可以破裂并往往更重。

While lower-denier nylon can tear easily and allow water through, this construction — with covered, water-resistant zippers — feels and behaves tough. We left it out in the snow and banged it around. Water didn’t penetrate, and we didn’t rip through the fabric.

In fairness, don’t expect this to survive a monsoon on the tarmac or a water landing. It’s not waterproof. And if there’s a failure point, it could be at the bottom corners on the front of the luggage. This is where the stitching comes together and where the luggage will likely receive repeated impacts from baggage handling.

More testing and abuse are necessary to evaluate fully. But the bag feels well-built, and I haven’t noticed any preliminary indications of poor construction.

Organization

yeti十字路口行李室内

这是yeti擅长的地方......也许是一个tad odobust。十字路口行李箱在口袋上有口袋 - 字面上。外部垂直口袋位于两个内部网袋的顶部,(闭合时)坐在另外两个网状口袋的顶部。

所有这些都坐在主隔间的顶部!老实说,如果它确实这样,我觉得yeni被诅咒,如果没有。有些人只是希望一个大桶快速包装,其他人欣赏组织和分裂的选择。

我在后一种类别中得多。我通常在旅行前的时候开始包装,并尽量让我在登陆时尽可能简单。所有的口袋以及两个包含的包装立方体,还有很长的路要力帮助。坦率地说,雪丝看起来像是试图为检查的袋子做什么Cotopaxi用其allpa进行了随身携带.

特征

至于钟声和吹口哨,并不多。我沿着外面爱所有的大型崎岖的手柄。每侧有两个,一个在顶部和底部。它有助于操纵这个大型检查的袋子,是否有人将其扔进飞机或你将它装入骑行后面。

车轮像梦中一样滚动 - 并通过泥泞溅起并用Aplomb制作过度。最后,伸缩的主手柄工作得很好,并且当我把它拖到我身后时,保持袋子撞到我的脚跟是一个很好的长度。

Plus, the medium and small packing cubes add a nice touch. YETI also has a large packing cube for purchase separately.

Based solely on build and feature set — heck yes, YETI’s Crossroads Luggage looks and feels like a dynamite piece of travel gear. It’s burly, offers dynamic storage and carry options, and even comes with some added packing cubes. It’s great!

然后是价格。对于29英寸行李箱的谷歌快速浏览,展示了低端60美元的市场,最高可达名称 - 品牌选项的300美元。有时包括一个以上的袋子或四个施法者轮子。

The YETI Crossroads 29-inch Luggage costs $450. That puts it in the upper echelon of large travel bags. At that price, it’s out-muscling Victorinox and giving Samsonite a run for its money. Will folks shell that out like they did when YETI made a cooler more than twice as expensive as the competition?

也许 - 特别是如果十字路口胜过像yeti tundra的表现。雪雪道行李(22-和29英寸)今天在黑色,海军蓝色和含水层绿色(图)yei..com.
