    Carry On Perfection

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

    This pack worked great for two weeks in Europe (with at least one load of washing in the middle). The pockets were convenient and could be used with an external lock conveniently. The only caveat was I am slightly long-waisted for a woman (and 5'7") so it didn't fit perfectly at the hip. That's me and not the backpack, though.

    By far, the best travel pack I've used.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my travel pack. There are many like it, but this one is mine. And I'll never give it up.

    Seriously, if you are looking for a tremendously versatile pack, this is it. I'll probably miss mentioning a dozen other great things about it.

    Is 30L, packs stuff like a 40L, packs down like a 30L. The compression straps/wings are perfect. I have gone on 2 week trips to both Japan and Norway using no luggage, just this bag. And numerous backcountry trips to Montana, Alaska, Colorado, Canada and city trips to more states than I care to name.

    The large main compartment opens up clamshell style. This allows me to pack it in zones and easily get to anything I need. It fits a ton of stuff. Just when I think I've packed it too full, I start zipping it, adjust the pack and zip it all the way. I'm not sure where the backpack puts the stuff. It just swallows it up.

    It is all day comfortable to carry for me, even loaded to the hilt. The hip belt unloads the weight from my shoulders, does not chafe or create hot-spots, the straps sit just right and everything adjusts easily to get the perfect carry.

    The straps and hip-belt tuck away into the back panel. Takes a couple runs, but can be managed quickly, even on a plane. This lets it tuck neatly under the seat in front of you if there is no overhead storage space remaining.

    Zippers work great, even under stress. Pack is super durable. I accidentally dragged it (for who knows how long) behind an ATV while flirting with destruction at speeds I should not have been attempting on an un-maintained trail. It did tear up the material on the underside of the handle that holds the padding in. The main pack material took some minor abrasion damage, but no holes. I sewed the handle back together with some ripstop I had left over.

    Backpacks that go overboard with organization are a waste of weight and space. There is plenty of organization outside of the main compartment and I have used it for all or combinations of the following: laptop/tablets, magazines/books, writing stuffs, chargers/cables, batteries, cameras, keys/wallet/passport, tickets/passes/travel docs, toiletries/sunglasses, etc. etc. etc.

    My wife usually brings a roller style carry on for long trips and bringing back souvenirs. The compression straps can be wrapped and cinched around an extended handle. This allows me to manage her carry-on and my backpack all in one.

    Truly a great product.

    Toss your old carry on away

    Banging. The days of the back pack as a carry on are over. The stow-able shoulder straps are clutch and the compression straps are great. Fantastic for a weekend away or just extra 'stuff' on a trip.

    Perfect travel pack.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I purchased the Osprey Porter 30 to use as a carry on bag for flights. It's the right size to be used as carry on worlwide, so if you like to travel light it's wonderful. Usually I can fit 2 spare changes of clothes along with typical necessities with plenty of room for souvenirs.
    The compression straps work wonderfully, leaving the pack looking streamline and fashionable when packed light or heavy. The little pocket on the top is awesome for easy access of toiletries/liquids for flights or snacks for road trips and the front smaller organization compartment is perfect for documents or keeping odds and ends in order. There's even a soft pocket (for cellphones i think) that works wonderfully for sunglasses.
    Did I mention it's transformer powers? Straps are a pain while getting on and off planes, so put those bad boys away while you wait and pull them back out when you land. Very few things are as embarrassing as snagging on someone's cane or luggage while making your way.
    The only thing I have a problem with is the document pocket behind the right strap. It's big enough for passports or plane tickets, but it's really too tight to use along with being awkward to access while the pack is on.

    Great for backpacking trips

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this backpack for an almost 3-week trip to Europe. It easily carried everything I truly needed for the trip. It was durable and ergonomic. The zippers were of high quality and I liked how it unzipped to open like a suitcase. I had no problem using it as a carry on for my flights throughout Europe.
