Depending on your needs, this size can be just right for packing a few extra things to make the trip a little more comfortable — and stylish.  Customize for the look like you want, while you customize the function for the gear you need.  This is the launch pad, so add box, a solar panel, a rack, a rooftop tent, or a topper.
