Hands On Review: Osprey 40 Liter Transporter Duffel Bag

Osprey Transporter 40 Travel Duffel Bag

Here’s a hands on look at Osprey’s 40 Liter Transporter Duffel Bag

Osprey Transporter 40 Travel Duffel Bag (via Amazon) by Osprey

  • Suspended mesh ventilated backpanel
  • TSA airport approved security approved laptop sleeve
  • Padded Laptop and Tablet Sleeve
  • Blinker light attachment
  • Front panel organization pocket

Osprey Lifetime Warranty: “Osprey will repair any damage or defect for any reason free of charge – whether it was purchased in 1974 or yesterday.

Gear Trails Commentary: As of this posting, this is the pack I use for travel.  It’s awesome.  I carry my laptop and iPad in the the padded sleeve.  I love that it’s brightly colored on the inside so you can find things easy and it’s got plenty of room.  It’s a daypack, but it easily has enough room for me to go an entire weekend.  For the hikers in the group, it can also be used with a hydration pouch.  If you’re primary purpose is hiking, I’d probably look for another bag, but it’s nice to have the option.  This has been an awesome travel bag for me.  I have several Osprey bags and have been happy with them all.
