I bought this for a 3 month roadtrip across the country, mainly due to the fact I'm a fan of Osprey packs in general, it's size, and functionality.
It's quite large, a little bigger than I actually expected when I bought it. But the compression straps help manage it's bulk, better to be too big and compress than too small and overstuff.
I like it. It's built well, can be tossed around, it's rugged wheels for a variety of terrain and conditions are nice.
It fits nicely between a pack/soft bag/duffle, and a more traditional suitcase. The big handles on all sides make it easy to maneuver despite being very heavy loaded.
My only real complaints: It should have one more compression strap built in /or detachable. There's two fat/strong straps, but they're trying manage such a huge area that it feels need a third, or if opening/closing that many straps just to get at stuff would be annoying, then make it removable as an option. Second complaint is the main compartment zipper. It's a sturdy zipper, but the nature of 'round the corners' to open it, with overlapping fabric or various degrees of pressure/bag fill make it the hardest thing to do. I find myself constantly yanking on the handles or bag sides to straighten out the zipping angle so it'll actually slide easily. Small thing, but enough of a pet peeve and on such a critically used area that it could/should be better.
Definitely recommend it so far. Will post a follow up after the full 3 months of use.

I've inspected every inch of the bag and the construction is bomb proof. I love how it has separate pockets for dirty clothes or other things you don't want to mix with the main compartment. Took this thing all around Europe for about a month. Rolled it down super rough cobble stone streets, over sand and dirt, and pretty much everything in between. This thing held up great. Wheels are the first thing on a roller bag that will break generally, but with this bag i don't thing that will be the case. This thing is crazy good quality. And as with all Osprey products, they have the best warranty in the industry. For any reason, at any time, without a receipt, Osprey will repair or replace it.... even in 30 years

Has survived multiple landings in developing world airports - it would probably stop a bullet.
Two issues: you can fit a lot of stuff in this, but since it starts at nearly 9 pounds you have to be careful of getting hit with the overweight baggage fee. That's not the bag's fault, that's you for packing too much in and the airlines for being filthy mugger pirates.
Second is that the slack on the compression straps is held in with plastic clips. Since you'll want to keep the straps from dangling once it's all compressed (lest something catch on a conveyor somewhere) you really need these, but the plastic clips are a little thin and have broken, likely when a baggage thrower flung the bag by the straps instead of the handles. However, Osprey on request sent an envelope full of replacement clips.
The Osprey Shuttle 32 is a beast of a bag. If you need to pack your life with you wherever the destination may be, look here. The Shuttle is feature rich, and exhibits the quality Osprey is known for. However, beware, this bag has liability of oversize charges from the airlines. The Osprey Shuttle 32 is a great solution if you have a high volume need for packing your cargo around.
The Osprey Shuttle 32 is a beast of a bag. It is great if you are looking to pack your life around with you wherever it is that you might be going. The storage capacity speaks for itself. Feature package is pretty self explanatory, I can't find many features I would like to have in addition to what the current build is. Beware, when fully packed this thing is a beast to lug around, and you will most definitely be dinged from the airlines when checking depending on what your cargo might be. Nonetheless if you need to take your house with you, this bag is a great sherpa for the job.
Awesome bag. A really high quality made bag. The wheels work really well and run very smooth. Fantastic guarantee on the product.
I am a big fan of this bag. I dragged it around Europe for two weeks and it held up like a champ on trains, planes and automobiles. The lower gear pocket was large enough for my snowboard boots and a bunch of dirty base layers. This was key as the bottom compartment is completely segregated from the main compartment so my nicer clothes stay clean and dry and away from the stank of used gear. The handle is retractable and feels really sturdy. The wheels are high quality, roll really nicely and quietly. There is a side pouch that runs the entire length of the bag that was useful for storing a pack for day trips. There are plenty of pockets on the outer portion of the lid allowing me to keep a down jacket and a few other essentials readily accessible The compression straps are adjustable to to cinch down just the top of the bag or they will reach and attach across the top and down the side of the bag for compression of the large side pocket I mentioned earlier. Overall, a great bag that I would recommend without reservation
Has anyone had any problems checking the Shuttle 32 with the airlines and getting tagged with the oversized baggage charge? The external dimensions Osprey posts is 34"x19.5"x15.5" which would put it in the oversize range.
Sadly, airlines don't really give oversized charges anymore. Just overweight. I've used a bag this big a couple times, and nobody cares.
