great bag, lame picture
going to AK. the sojourn kicks ass. Seriously the best bag ever. however i need to warranty the little black peice that is on the bottom that holds the bag up. Osprey is all chill with it though.
will this bag fit in the overhead compartment...
will this bag fit in the overhead compartment on a plane?? I am looking for a good travel bag, that doesn't need to be checked.
It's actually a lot bigger than it looks. Probably won't fit.
Great pack with 1 fault.
I switched to this from Osprey's similar pack, the meridian 28, and love it. More space and I can use any daypack with it(the built in ones are always crap). Overall this is a fantasticaly comfortable, good-lookin', durable, well designed bag. BUT...Baggage handlers broke a rivet on the footbar, which had to be replaced by Osprey. I had the same problem with my Meridian.
The convertible was the right decision!
This bag has been great for my adventure travels through South America. The back straps really are totally usable, even for hiking if the bag is not too heavy. Convertible rocks. I used the wheels throughout my plane flights and airports and then when then airport shuttle bus dropped me off and i had to walk a few blocks i just got out the back straps and off i went. The construction seems very durable too so it´s all good!
totally proved my wife wrong. this and the 22 totally carried everything we needed for our trip of 8 days. Super nice features, the pack straps for the pack option are very comfortable and supportive. Just a super solid piece, sure I could have spent the same and gotten a 6 piece set of a ton of junk...but this thing is gonna last forever.
Great bag - not too large but big enough
My husband bought this bag prior to our 3 week adventure tour to Egypt. I practiced packing my stuff in it, including a backpacker's air mattress (we weren't backpacking but needed it anyway) and a really small sleeping bag and everything fit, so I bought one.
As I used it more and more I liked it even better. The top part is slanted, so it doesn't get the pressure of other luggage on top of it in the luggage compartment. And, as I bought things on the trip, there was always a secure corner to put things, even breakable things.
It converts to a decent backpack. There is an air space between the mesh liner that touches your back and the rest of the pack, so that keeps you cool. Once you fasten the stays at top and bottom it carries very well. If you miss fastening these, it wobbles and rattles and is a total pain.
We use packing cubes, so we don't need a lot of internal compartments. The 7 lb weight is not bad considering that you have the extra weight of the backpack straps and it's such a large bag.
This bag got thrown on top of busses and dragged through dirt with no problem, though I did wipe it down a little when I got home.
The compression straps on the outside have fasteners on the top and also can be fastened near the bottom, to prevent having long stap ends dangling about and getting caught in luggage carousels. This is a good thing. The only flimsy thing is the clip on the compression straps to fasten down the loose end -- of course one broke off. Also, for you the bag is no mystery, but for luggage handlers it is not obvious how to pick it up and I think they grab the compression straps. So I just tuck the loose ends under the straps in the old fashioned way.
This bag can hold an amazing amount of stuff given its expansive, "straight-jacket" type of closure. Its construction is of the highest quality, given the ballistic nylon and excellent roller system. Its backpacking features are more than one generally finds in a rolling duffel. Love this bag!
Great 30 something luggage for the active traveler
Great backpack/rolling duffel! I love it! You can cram plenty of stuff in there for 2 weeks (or several months with laundry service) of travel and it's very lightweight. My only complaint is that in a pinch when you want to switch rolling duffel to backpack, there is a learning curve and it takes up to 5 minutes.
I have to say that the Osprey Soujourn 28 is a great base bag for global trekkers. I am not sure that I would use it exclusively as a backpack although the straps give it more options in terms of lugging the bag around. The only complaint I have is that one of the zipper pulls on the main compartment popped off, an easy fix by either parachute cord or something similar.
excellent travel bag
I used the Sojourn 28 for a trip this summer to the UK. It was a 12 day trip (including attendance at an academic conference and some fun travel). I was able to fit all the essential clothing I needed (no winter clothes though) and the bag weighed total 45 lbs loaded (good for meeting current weight limits for checked luggage). The bag rolls well and compression straps on inside and out were easy to use. It has good handles on outside and the conversion to backpack features are great. I recommended this bag to another friend who needs to do some international travel.
