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.

Organized and Accessible

Structural sidewalls hold your bag open, making it easy to pack and unload, especially with the massive U-zip opening. Dedicated, easily accessible pockets provide on-the-go access to key items. Traveling is about experience and memories, and you'll have more time for both when you spend less time packing.

Impressive bag, but poor color choices

4

Great pack in terms of function. The belt could use better padding. The grey is not grey, but a dingy green. The red screams attention, which is hardly what a mature, intelligent traveler wants while in a foreign place. The teal would better appeal to a junior high girl than an adult. Osprey, please consider that travelers want an understated but handsome and classy look, and rethink the palette you offer.

Perfect Pack for Travel - Don't take anything else!

5

Our family made a 20 day trip through Italy with the Porter 65 (husband and wife), Porter 46 (three older kids) and Porter 30. These were MORE than sufficient to take all our necessary clothing, toiletries, shoes, electronic accessories, etc... The Porters fit in the carry-on compartment for the overseas flights - they ratcheted closed easily and compactly. They fit all our different body shapes and sizes comfortably and at times, for extended periods of time. There are sufficient pockets for keeping items separated. It's wonderful to have your hands free for carrying purses, passports, tickets, walking up stairs, hopping on trains... the possibilities are endless! These are our favorite packs to take ANYWHERE and for any trip. Thanks Osprey! Wonderful!

Wheelchair friendly

I use the Porter 46 as a day pack, traveling pack, work bag. Most big packs are too long. This works for wheelchair users. The pack doesn't ride to low which helps it clear the wheelchair back rest.

Very NIce Bag

I bought this bag to go on a month long backpacking vacation where I would be taking on multiple flights. Fits perfectly within the guidelines of all the airlines we used. Lots of pockets for organization so its not all in a jumbled mess. Would highly recommend the bag.

I like it

Purchased two (one each) for my daughter and me for travel, not backpacking. I can't attest to long wear comfort. I like that the straps can be in use or packed away. I can carry my kid's if walking through large airport while wearing mine. She was able to independently handle/wear the pack when she took it to camp for a week. She is average sized 10YO, and the pack was large for her, but independently manageable. Plenty of hooks and the compressions straps can accommodate a wide variety. Tucked a jacket during travel, my kid had her sleeping bag for camp. For our trip, we each comfortably fit over a week's worth of clothing (wore 2x), requiring clothing for hot and cool temperatures. Jacket. Full toiletry bag. Couple books. Computer. Electronic cords. My camera gear (full sensor DSLR body, three lenses). And room for a couple souvenirs on way back. They EASILY fit in the overhead compartment. Slid righty in, no hold up trying to squeeze them in. That was a necessity as I do not like checking bags. I was worried about this, but they do meet requirements! I REALLY like the bag. The compression straps feel durable in combination with the wrap around flaps. I LOVE the open top "suitcase" style to easily pack/retrieve items. My first Osprey bag. The quality seems very nice. I expect to have for over a decade — much nicer than my last backpack that lasted for that long. Definitely plan to have for my daughter until she's an adult.

Almost the best travel pack ever...almost.

5

I have been seeking out the very best carry on pack for extensive travel all around the world. I am an ex-pat living in Eastern Asia and travel 2-4 times a year during the semester breaks. I really need a pack that is light, super durable, has lots of room, and can withstand a car crash. I have had this pack for over 2 years now (the color I chose is no longer available...Green) and have taken it on 2 trips to Europe and 6 major trips around Asia and one to Africa. This is almost the very best pack ever. It is made for the person who can lock his belongings and never worry about someone rifling through it. If there is only one qualm it would be that if the pack is getting close to being slightly heavy the straps get very uncomfortable, almost like a pack from the 1970's. I know it is a great design to be able to unclip them and zip them away and tuck the hip straps away for the unexpected time the airline says you have to check it in which can happen. But I think it is a great feature since travelling to some regions we are left to unpredictable conditions. Some airlines have different standards for sizing that is allowed to be a carry-on bag. What I have learned is to not jam pack it so it can be more flexible to fit in the carry on box when checking in to the airlines. I know to make the straps more comfortable would take some serious designing upgrades that might take away much needed space for the traveler. I also understand that having durable backing and make it breathable is pretty much impossible as it would get torn for the way baggage handlers tend to treat luggage, this is a small price to pay to have such a good pack. I have had no other issue with it being a check in or a carry on. Too bad no bottle pouch, but it would get snagged on something. The padded handles still appear new and through much travelling it show little to no wear. Thank you Osprey once again. I own 4 Osprey packs and this one is by far the most useful.

Side handle and drings for strap too far back.

3

Side handle and d rings for straps are too far back that when you use then too carry its awkward. The bag tilts in an awkward angle that hits your leg annoyingly. Overall great bag. Returning. Waiting for the redesign. Thanks osprey :)

GREAT BAG!

Yes I could rate this bag higher, I would! I have just finished a three week trip through Indonesia, Thailand, and Cambodia. This bag performed in a way that exceeded all of my expectations! It was room enough to handle all of my dive gear along with the clothes that I would need for the time that I was there. They was only 1 small plane that I was not able to use the overhead luggage bin with. In that case, the shoulder straps stove quickly and completely out of sight, adding very little bulk to the bag. The abundance of pockets and side areas for keeping and separating my essentials, really makes this a functional bag. You outdid yourselves with this one, Osprey! Thanks for such a terrific experience!

The fit just doesn't like me

There is know doubt that the overall quality and organization is top notch as you would expect from an osprey product, but the comfort seriously lacks for me. No! I did not overpack. After wearing it just for ten minutes, I couldn't wait to take it off! My shoulders and chest where in pain and the hip belt didn't help the cause. The problem may be that I'm a male that weighs 180 lbs with smaller shoulders and a narrower sternum than most. A lot of people love this pack so maybe if your a little broader in the shoulders then this might be the pack for you. Unfortunately that person isn't me!

Great bag but the Caste Grey color is light green.

4

I just purchased this bag for air travel so I wouldn't need a backpack and a roller suitcase. The bag itself is great! The design is well though out and has great quality just like any other Osprey pack. The only issue I have is there were no local retailers selling this product so I had to buy online without actually seeing the pack. If I had seen the Castle Grey color in person I would have opted for black; the grey is light green and the pictures online make it seem to be grey. If Osprey offered to exchange for a different color I would exchange it for a black bag. It isn't a bad color but in my opinion Osprey needs to update the color description on the website to something more accurate.
