Summary

Built to last and easily pack a week's worth of gear.

Pros

  • Spacious
  • Tough
  • Multiple grab handles
  • Compact
  • Backpack

Cons

  • Scant on compartments
  • Backpack not the most comfortable long term

I purchased this pack for an upcoming cruise and did not want to check luggage. I was easily able to fit a weeks worth of gear in this bag including a suit and shoes. The compression straps kept the bag within checked luggage limits.

A couple carabiners allowed me to attach water bottles to the bag. The compression straps also held my coat when I wasn't wearing it allowing me to be hands free. The convertible backpack makes carrying the bag a breeze, though the straps do get a little uncomfortable after an extended period of time. There is a small pocket on top for toiletries and not much else in the way of compartments, just a large open bag.

Overall a great travel bag, definitely recommend.

Here's what other sites are saying:

Capacious enough to easily accommodate a week's worth of gear, the Osprey Porter 65 Backpack also is versatile and impressively mobile. You can sling it over your shoulder in a mad dash from bus to plane, or don it like a full-on backpack for the trek to gate Z99. Either way, you'll pass everyone with unwieldy cases as they impatiently fidget on the barely moving walkway or huff, puff, and sweat all over their belongings.

Big enough for your ski boots or your helmet, bike shoes, and Lycra, Osprey's Porter 65 carries it all in a large-volume main compartment. Multiple carry options make it easier to get through airports: shoulder straps and waist belt that can be stowed when not needed, multiple carry handles, and an over-the-shoulder strap.
