It's a small moving van.
If your motto is 'it's better to have and not need than to need and not have', you probably need some pretty serious luggage. The Osprey Contrail 28 Rolling Gear Bag is right up your alley. The Contrail 28 carries a whopping 75 Liters of luggage. Organizational features include external zippered side pockets, pockets on the inner front panel, a removable laundry bag, and the Osprey FlightLocker.

Superb product; superb Customer Service
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The quality of the Contrail 28 is superb. Very streamlined, with tough fabric, and durable. The zippers are high quality, lay flat when locked, and in the right places. There?s no wasted space in this sleek bag. No extra weight, hassle, or volume of a convertible bag with two sets of back-back straps. The Osprey Contrail Backpack I purchased from Backcountry has-a-sewn-panel which hooks over the handles of the Contrail 28. Along with the large, high mounted wheels, the Contrail Backpack is balanced on the 28. The large wheels, and elevated attachment, is very clever. The system easily handles obstacles like broken pavement and curbs. Even carrying another bag, the Contrail 28 keeps the load straight, doesn't tip over, and doesn?t allow the secondary bag to flop off the side. When standing alone, the bag doesn?t up fall over backwards. This is a blessing in crowed airports! To keep my bag clean, I put mine in an Osprey airporter bag cover. It worked; not even in remote Africa did the Contrail suffer from abusive luggage handlers. I would definitely recommend the Contrail 28 and the Contrail Backpack to my friends. Functional, sleek, lightweight [in pounds, not ability], and durable, Osprey did a great job in their design and materials.
Although there was a problem with my original order, Backcountry?s Customer Service responded promptly, knowledgeably, courteously, and to my complete satisfaction. Backcoutry is a great company with great products. What more could one want?
