Transition Bags: Orca Transition Bag


$140, Orca.com

The draw: Pockets for everything

This is a double-duty bag—in addition to padded backpack straps, it also offers the option to switch to a single-strap duffle bag for training days. The bag has a pocket for everything in its 70 liters of space—from the protective zippered helmet compartment on top to the waterproof wetsuit compartment on bottom, to a lockable felt-lined pocket for your ID, keys and phone. The duffel-style opening and high-contrast lime green interior allow you to easily see all your gear in the main compartment at once.
