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.

Retailers' Descriptions

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 stow the waist belt and shoulder straps to sling it over your shoulder in a mad dash from bus to plane, or don it like a full-on backpack for the long trek from gate A1 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 curse over their belongings. With padded sleeves for your laptop and tablet, a generous bottom compartment, and sturdy compression wings, you'll be able to fit plenty of gear for your long transatlantic trips, without the stress of dealing with multiple tough-to-manage bags.
