Great pack for 4 years running

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had this as my carry on bag for almost 4 years now and I've been really happy with it. It's a great size for a long weekend up to a week, depending on how light you pack. The bag fits in average US carry on bins pretty easily. It can be a snug fit with the removable daypack still attached, but I've only ever had to gate check it on a tiny regional jet that didn't really fit any rolling bags overhead. I typically pack the daypack with stuff that I'd like to have at my seat during the flight and zip it off right before I get on the plane. It's really nice to be able to zip the daypack onto the bag while you're walking around the airport and not have anything on your back or shoulders. The daypack is a decent size - not as spacious as a standard school backpack, but plenty big for a large laptop, tablet, chargers, snacks, etc. It's pretty low profile so if you do zip it off and have it under the seat in front of you it doesn't chew up all of your legroom.

The body of the pack is pretty spacious. As other reviewers have noted, the frame for the carry handle sticks out a bit into the bag in order to make room for the backpack harness. It does sacrifice a little bit of interior space, but the tradeoff is that you can carry the whole thing as a backpack quite comfortably. Additionally, the frame is designed to keep the bottom edge pretty high off the ground when you're wheeling it, so you don't have any issues with getting stuck on uneven ground.

Durability on this pack is great. I've had this for almost 4 years, taking it on flights 6-10 times a year plus other car trips. There aren't any major signs of wear and I haven't had any seams blow out or anything break off. I did manage to get a gash in the fabric on the side of the pack on one trip, but with Osprey's All Mighty Guarantee they sewed it back up free of charge. Knowing the abuse that travel bags can go through, Osprey's guarantee is a pretty huge feature.

Hey Mark - Thank you again for reviewing! The Meridian is top notch in feature set and durability for sure... AND offers an awesome detatchable day pack too! And you nailed it on Osprey's warrenty - it just cannot be beat!

Thank you!

It could be better

I was attracted by this backpackd because of its multiple features. And I was excited about it when I just got it. It looked like a durable. backpack. However, after first time use, the lower buckle clip was broken. It let me feel bad. And I didn't know how to fix it. After that, I just used it as car trip.

It could be better

Perfect Carry On

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Plenty of room for 3-4 days of clothes and the detachable daypack works great with my macbook air/ipad and other items.

Perfect Carry On

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought the Meridian 22 Rolling Convertible Backpack over a year ago and it has been my go to travel bag. It is the perfect carry on, that holds more then enough. I have taken it all over the world and love the removable back pack. If you travel for work this a real win purchase.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Was initially excited to get this bag. It looked cool and functional, however in practice it doesn't live up to expectations. It has a ton of lost space from the handle bar rails and the backpack straps. Also, the wheels will poke you in the hips if you wear it like a backpack to the point that if you have to go further than a few hundred yards you will regret it. I completely removed the back pack straps and now stuff items in that space. Lastly, the zip off pack is weird. It has one large compartment that needs to be divided up to keep your small stuff organized better. It works okay, but i was expecting better from Osprey.

All packed up

All packed up

The contents include 3 pants, 5 shirts, 4 pairs of underwear and 6 pairs of socks. The top of bag toiletry pocket (shown at top of image) is also fully packed for 3 weeks of travel. The image may not display this, however, there is still plenty of room for 1-2 more pants and shirts, not to mention the available space in the detachable backpack for camera gear or whatever else you need.

Toiletry Pocket Extends 7.5 inches

Toiletry Pocket Extends 7.5 inches

The top of bag toiletry pocket extends approx. 7.5 inches (when fully loaded) into the interior of the bag. When not fully loaded, the pocket can be rolled up to be less obtrusive.

I have attempted to show the amount of space that is lost in the interior area when the top of back toiletry pocket is fully packed.

Not to mention the lost space frome the handle bar rails. Also the backpack staps take up a boat load of room too. Last, the wheels will poke you in the hips if you wear it like a backpack.

The entire pack system stows neatly inside the rear pouch with enough room left over for travel maps, documents etc. Plus, lockable zippers too!

Absolutely amazing and versatile!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My first international travel experience taught me the importance of packing light; never again will I check a bag. I think I researched all 22 inch carry-ons ever made, well at least from all the major companies (Eagle Creek, Victorinox, High Sierra etc.)

I read every review I could find and was impressed with the consistently high ratings from each source so I decided to take the plunge and buy the Meridian sight unseen (unable to locate in any local stores) and was immediately impressed when I received it.

The pack has more features than I can list in this review so I will try to highlight my favorites:

Top and Side handles extra thick (but not obtrusive), comfortable and extremely durable.

Top external pocket is wide and deep and allows for easy access to toiletries and documents when going through airport security.

Easily fits in domestic (US) carryon compartments and can be wheeled down the aisles without a problem.

The main bag backpack system is awesome. Fully adjustable and removable with chest and hip belts, plus, it does not extend out past your hips (I'm 5ft 11 180lbs) so you can easily walk in crowds or down aisles without acting like a bull in a china shop.

The storage system allows it to be fully concealed and, when removed, makes a nice area to place your dirty clothes or travel maps, documents etc.

Bottom bumper to ensure the pack does not tip over, I have had this fully loaded and never a hint of balance problems, additionally, the wheels are extremely smooth and surprisingly quiet.

The removable backpack makes for an awesome day bag or is also big enough to use during a weekend get-away. If there is one thing I could recommend to Osprey is to add a hip belt to this as well. That is truly the only upgrade I can recommend for the entire pack system.

As you can tell, I am completely wowed by the bag. Best of quality with amazing features and versatility. I highly recommend it.

Absolutely amazing and versatile!

Thanks for the pics - any way you could post one of the inside of the bag?

color on website different than product

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I love the backpack and am happy with it. Just wanted to point out that I ordered the patina green backpack, which looks quite green. When I opened my package, the green I saw was more of a metallic/grey green (see photo). I'm fine with it, but just wanted to point that out.

Awesome luggage

This is my second Osprey Meridian luggage that I have bought. My husband and I love the detachable backpack. It makes things so much easier when traveling to be able to attach or leave it unattached for day tripping. My first bag was red and while this states it is a Rusted Red, the one I received has no red to the color. I would describe it has Rust (brownish orange). I like the zippered compartment on top for easy access to liquids quart sized bag for airport travels.Would Highly recommend this bag.

Bag has performed flawlessly

I travelled with a 22" and 28" Meridian Bag on a Month long trip to Indonesia with my wife 2 years ago and numerous trips since. The bag has survived several trips at this point and outside of some scuffs from air travel looks almost new. These are very tough bags with comfortable handles and the ability to convert into a backpack. This is a very handy feature when travelling to Europe (where hotels often have no lifts or elevators) or Anywhere you may have no paved road or very rough roads that have to be travelled over to get from one destination to the other. I found the wheels to be both sturdy and large enough to travel over cobbled or rough gravel roads with no issue. The 22" was the perfect size for most carryon bins and the 28" was large enough for a long trip. After a trial run my wife and I were able to fit all of the clothign for an upcoming 28 day climbing trip for our family of four in the two bags. We are light packers, but with some immagination you can get a lot into these things.

One note - with the removeable backpacks attached these are top heavy and will likely fall over. Its a great benefit when pulling and moving the bags from one location to the other, but can be a hasle if you're sitting around and want the bags to stand on the wheel side.
