Does anyone know how comfortable the back straps are? Is this just suitable for throwing on your back to get out of the airport, or can you walk across town/city using public transport and be happy at the end?

Responded on

I haven't used this bag, but I've used similar enormous duffels from TNF and Stoic and the backpack setup is only good for about an hour (depending on weight) before your back starts hurting. There's no rigidity to the bag, so it can't really support itself on your waist and it starts to pull your shoulders back pretty badly after a while.

Responded on

I have to agree with Angus, while the straps do have some padding there is not a lot of support and the straps are more for ease and convenience through the airport. If you are looking for something you can wear for longer periods look into the waypoint or farpoint series

Is this pack waterproof? I need a duffel for a multi-day road ride and need it to be waterproof.

Responded on

It's not. Sounds like you're doing a supported tour, thought. When I did Bike Tour of Colorado, I lined the duffel I had with a trash bag. Everything stayed dry, even when afternoon thunderstorms dumped on the bags.

If you really want to buy something, sort the duffel bag category by price, high to low, and you'll get the waterproof ones filtered to the top. The DaKine on sale for $115 might do the trick.

Durable. Light. Convenient.

I bought this to haul my trekking gear around East Africa. This bag is HUGE. It survived the baggage handling at the airport (can't say the same for other luggage I've purchased), survived being hauled up Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya, and still looks in great shape. The back straps are pretty convenient as well.
Its worth noting that this bag is NOT waterproof.

I'm comparing this to the Patagonia Black Hole Duffel. Can you tell me if the Osprey Transporter is waterproof?

Responded on

Nope, this duffel bag is not waterproof.

Responded on

The fabric is coated, but the seams are not taped and the zippers are not waterproof.

Simple, light, tough

If you want a light weight gear duffle, that is easy to travel with, this is the bag for you. Simple number of compartments, great compression straps, good quality zippers. Really hand back pack straps clip and unclip and stow away for a clean travelling bag, that is easy to throw on your back for short hauls. A nice handle is on the top of the bag as well for easy quick tosses. Overall I have been really happy with this bag as a simple and clean duffle. Many times I choose to travel with a bag like this so I save the extra 6-8 lbs on a roller bag for all of my heavy climbing and skiing gear I usually travel with.

Osprey Trasporter 5700

Has worked well on the one family trip so far, just airport lugging and travel. Bag is than large enough to hold everything you need for several weeks of Christmas vacation with the family, so I assume also spacious enough for smaller expeditions and gear transport. Compression straps and "D" zipper are a great design, and the handle is soft in your hand even when the thing is loaded to 50lbs. Bag seems well made out of lightweight materials. My primary complaint (and the reason I decided to try this duffel instead of TNF equivalent) is with the backpack straps. Zip away nicely and attach easily, but like reviewers for TNF have stated, the straps on this bag are sewn to close together. I only wore the bag for 20-30 min (loaded to 35lbs) at a time in backpack formation while waiting in line at the airport, and both times within about 5 minutes was experiencing the pain in my neck and upper-mid back that comes from pressure directed in the wrong angles. Disappointed that Osprey would allow this oversight in one of their products, but since I don't anticipate having to lug the bag for more than family outings and sissy expeditions, I will hang onto it since I like everything else about it.

Unanswered Question

So I'm trying to decide between the Osprey 95 duffle and large TNF Base Camp duffle. Both have compression straps, backpack straps and about 5700 in of space. The Osprey is a touch lighter. Anyone have experience that would steer them towards one verses the other? It will be used mostly for airport travel with the family and the occasional small, not so hard core expedition.
