Light weight bag for city to city travel

My husband and I just shared this bag on a month long trip in Europe with 8 stops and we loved it. The way the front panel unzips so you can see and access everything in the bag without unpacking is great. We loved the way the straps slip into the bag so it's not difficult for air travel when you need to check the bag. The bag is super light and high quality - especially the zippers. We appreciated the inside pockets to keep some stuff separated out.

We also liked the way the compression straps worked. We're both pretty confident that if the bag wasn't fully loaded and was compressed, you could use it as a carry-on on an airplane.

The only downside is that when it was loaded up, it was heavy and because the straps are on the thin side and the waist belt isn't padded, it was uncomfortable to carry for long distances. If you're looking for the most comfortable, padded bag to carry, this isn't it. Wouldn't recommend it for a backpacking trip with a lot of hiking or hauling, but it's perfect for easily and quickly moving your stuff from point A to B over cobblestones or up and down stairs.

We considered a lot of different bags and were both so glad we chose this one. We almost talked ourselves into a backpack with a lot of dangling straps that would need to be bagged for air travel and a bag that converts from a backpack to a roller. In the end we decided we wanted the leanest, meanest bag we could get and the porter really did a great job.

I fly over 100 flights a year and have for 20 years and this bag is the best backpack style bag I've ever used. I like the way the back pack shoulder and waist straps are less substantial and easier to tuck away than other backpacks I've used that were designed for hiking. I only use the straps to and from the airport or hotel so the is no need for the extra padded straps needed on long hikes. another great feature is the straps used to close the bag can be extended to a set of tucked away buckles and cinched town tight when your bag has a small amount of cargo. this makes for a more streamlined pack on your back. There are a few zippered pockets to store miscellaneous items. I recommend this bag to people looking for a backpack style luggage. It works great!

Light weight, holds a lot

I really wanted a bag that I could carry on my back instead of wheels. This bag was great! It held 6 outfits, 2 pairs of shoes, pjs, swimwear, and the full size REI toiletry kit. I had room for gifts too. Not too heavy, and all the straps have a garage for storage. Fit in the overhead compartment on the plane easily.

Osprey Porter travel pack duffel

we used this product traveling both train, and auto, car camping, and over seas flight. The versatility of this product is outstanding, as we're able to utilize the pack sac straps as well as the duffel handles. The 65l capacity is perfect for those 3-7 day trips either packing around hotels/vehicles, as well as euro train traveling over seas.

Great Gear Bag

Great bag. Easily fits all my climbing gear including rope, quick draws, helmet and two pairs of shoes.
Only con is that it is already starting (after 2 weeks) to show a some wear and tear on the bottom of the bag. I will have to be more careful with where I set it down.

Great for designed use

I have traveled extensively, world wide, with the Porter 65. For its designed use, it is good equipment. Not made for extreme expeditions, it is simple and clean, durable and even with all my extended travel gear I found out it floats !

Negative Reviews:

Thin, no-cushion shoulder straps

I used the Osprey Porter 65 to travel to the Indian Himalayas for one month, and it was not loaded down. Nonetheless, after 10-15 minutes, I found that the pack was extremely uncomfortable. The shoulder straps are thin, cheap straps that dig into the shoulders because they have no cushion. For example, all of my daypacks, including my REI Lookout 40 bag, have considerably higher quality shoulder straps that are wider and have much more cushion, which is rather odd considering how much smaller their capacity is.

To top it off, the breast strap snapped off during the 2nd or 3rd day of use, something that I've never had happen in 25 years of using backpacks.

I am going to attempt to return this backpack to REI. If I cannot return it, I will attempt to replace the straps. If I cannot do that, I will use it as a camping storage bag and never use it again as a backpack.

The other aspects of the bag are good, including the capacity, general functionality, and how the straps tuck away for transit on planes or buses. But it's painful to use as a backpack, and for that design flaw alone, I cannot give this more than one star.
