My wife and I have used the Shuttle bags to transport our scuba diving gear and all other necessities, when we go diving to many different places around the world. These bags are easy to pack, yet lightweight - which is very important since airlines often want us to keep our total luggage weight under 50 pounds. With these bags, we can easily pack all our scuba gear, clothes, and other stuff, and still be under 50 pounds. The bags are also very strong and rugged which is important to us as our luggage not only goes on/off airplanes, but also on/off boats, boat docks. (Going scuba diving is NOT the same as going to a nice hotel. Rather, it is often a more rugged environment). Our bags have performed flawlessly. We also have (only) Osprey bag for hiking, as well as more casual travel. The Osprey bags were originally recommended to us by a fellow traveler (who was also a world traveler). Needless to say, that recommendation was 'spot on' and we have enjoyed and appreciated our Osprey for many years now.
