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

The Transporter, at least the 40 Liter size is packable.  It comes packed just like this.  It was a bit tough to unpack, so I wouldn’t consider it easily packable.  It’s nice to have the ability, but I probably will not pack it much if ever.

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.
