Description

With padded sidewalls, convenient organization and a substantial suspension for backpack-style carry that disappears when checking bags, the Porter Series has set the standard for deluxe duffels. This season brings a relocated and dedicated zippered laptop and tablet pocket—and functional storage options for items both big and small—with multiple access points. When a duffel isn’t enough and backpacking bags are too much, the Porter is the answer.

Key Attributes

StraightJacket Protection

StraightJacket compression straps with padded sidewalls to help protect your bag's contents and allow you to fit more gear or compress the bag to a smaller size when it isn't fully stuffed.

Stowaway Harness and Hipbelt

The Porter harness and hipbelt deploy at a moment's notice for backpack style carry and quickly disappear into the backpanel for safe keeping when your bags are checked.

Great for EU Travel!!!

5

I purchased this bag last summer for my trip to Europe. I read many comments about the bag not fitting the actual carry on dimensions (by an inch) but went with it anyway. I was traveling Norwegian Air and knew they had strict travel requirements. When I arrived at JFK my bag was well under the carry on weight and that was their focus. I'm glad I had only one bag while hopping buses and trains for those 12 days. My friends who live over there commented on how light the bag was even though I packed it with more than enough clothes for my stay. I love the easy access to my electronics/cords/books etc. pocket. I also purchased the travel cubes which made it easy to find my things without spending a lot of time looking for something.

Perfect for travel

I bought this pack for a 5 week Europe trek for my main carry on bag. I had no issues with it not fitting in the overhead bins. The pack offers tons of space and I did not end up using it to its fullest capacity. I think my bag was around 35 pounds and it was comfortable for the most part, just somewhat uncomfortable on the shoulders when walking distances. I have used this pack since this trip on about 3 other adventures and I have never had issues. I let my friend borrow it for her Europe adventure and she loved it so much she ended up buying her own! For the slight discomfort felt, I think it is well worth it to have a sturdy, spacious, and reliable pack.

SHOULDER PAIN

1

Hay, I just bought the bag yesterday. I'm 216lbs / 98kg weight 71 inch / 180 cm tall I entered my stuffs of about 10 - 11 kg, including shoes, small bag, shirts, and jacket but why I feel sick and pain at my shoulder? It doesn't feel comfortable at all for me. I'm really tired walking just about 2km. Then I decided to strapping the bag and put it into baggage. I'm a big guy and I think bring porter 46 with 10/11 kg stuff is possible for me, But I really can't handle the bag, my shoulder feel pain. are the Porter 46 really for tall people like me? What is the maximum weight recommendation for Porter 46?

Almost perfect!

I've used this bag on three overseas trips and love being able to throw this on my shoulders and just GO. I've travelled for a month in Australia, three weeks in Europe and two weeks in Iceland using just this pack and a small day pack (doing laundry) and love the space, the pockets, the detachable straps and handles all over. However, it's too big to be a carry on on several airlines so check before you book. It might fit fine in the overhead bin but not in the airlines' carry-on measurement tester. At 5'6" it is a little big on me but once the waist strap is properly tightened it still works and is comfortable to carry/wear for a couple hours.

Lovely look, horrible back pain

While this is a good quality product (e.g. durable), it did not hold up to the Osprey name. I traveled for a month in Europe 2 years ago with this pack and it has been left hanging in my closet since then. While it is indeed very roomy and aesthetically pleasing, this pack has very little back support and carrying it for anything more than an hour would leave me in a state of constant pain throughout the day. The pack is very stiff and flat in structure along the back. This means that it did not mold to the curvature of my back and the weight of the pack was therefore very poorly distributed with more weight on my shoulders, less on my hips. I'm 5'3", 125lbs and this bag did not fit me well. At the time it was purchased, I was a newbie in backpacking as well as pressed for time (I was leaving on my trip 2 days later) so I went with the first thing I found. Pretty disappointing.

Favorite bag ever

This is primarily my gym bag. Holds everything and more. Clothes, shoes and lots of gear doubled up. Compartments are plentiful and easily accessible. I know where everything is. Fits comfortably and lightweight even when stuffed. The firm body, padding and reinforcements keep objects from poking through to the back, causing discomfort. Hide just about anything. Zippers are superbly responsive and of high quality. Never a snag. I've has many good bags to know, but this one has succeeded them all.

Just bought my second one - first lasted 10 years

My first porter46 was basic black and had soft sidewalls. I really liked how light it was. Not sure I'm going to like the added weight, walls, and padding in the new one and the orange color is probably a mistake. I originally bought it for my partner but he prefers a wheeled bag with more features. My old porter46 has some small tears in the bottom and as I head out on a three week trip I'm afraid it would give up the ghost so I'm inheriting the new orangie. I see that the newer version has a much thicker bottom edge and sturdier handles which I think will come in handy. Never had an issue with carry on with my older pack - even on small Alaska planes - fingers crossed that its the same here.

Re: Carry-on size: I've never had a problem

5

I bought this pack from my local outdoor gear store for travel to Europe and it doesn't disappoint. Unlike a previous reviewer, I've never had an issue with this bag being considered carry-on size, ever. I have flown Delta, KLM, Alitalia and Easyjet and it always fit in the overhead bin, even on those smaller airplanes they use for Delta Connection flights. Perhaps that other reviewer just had to deal with a cranky airline employee that was having a bad day, but the Porter 46 shouldn't have any issues fitting unless you also have the Osprey Daylite pack attached to it. I love the top zipper pouch for carrying my clear plastic toiletries bag in, and the suspension system is top notch; even when the pack is really heavy if you adjust the straps correctly it balances the load and you hardly notice it. I've got the older model with the cushioned laptop sleeve in the front zippered section, but it's super easy for me to get it out before I go through security and just slide it back in. Great design. The pack fits a lot of stuff, too. I can pack for two weeks and not have to do laundry (Spring to Fall travel). I would totally buy this pack again, but I bet I'll never have to because it's so well-built it will probably last forever.

Castle grey is NOT grey; it is OLIVE GREEN!!

3

Let me start by saying that the functionality of the bag is great - the pockets, design, etc. However, the color "castle grey" on the website is completely misleading. This color is an olive green, NOT grey!! I wanted to love the bag but am not happy with the color. I would love to exchange it for the black but Osprey will not waive the $12 return fee for this bag for me to exchange, so looks like I might be stuck with it.

Skeptical at first but love this bag

I did a lot of Osprey research for this bag as I wanted an Osprey pack specifically for travel. I do a lot of travel for an organization I am involved with and wanted something designated for that. After I placed the order for my bag I was coming back for a trip and noticed someone board the plane with the Porter 45 I had ordered. I was shocked at how bulky the bag appeared and very surprised the airline allowed the passenger on the plane because no way was that bag going to fit in the overhead (on board a Q4). When my bag came in I was excited to go through - I opted for the teal as I wanted something other than another generic black bag. I picked the Porter 45 because although there was discrepancy of it being a carry on or not, I have traveled with it a few times and it does fit in the overhead bins. If you have things attached to the outside (think camera tripod, bulky jacket) you will have to remove. Be warned if you are packing the bag to it's absolute capacity, it looks like a gigantic bag and you are more likely to be asked to place your bag in the racks. Overall I am happy with my choice - I use this for airplane travel and road trips. It's the only bag I really need for essentials and packing light. I love the option of having it as a bag or a backpack.
