Osprey Porter 46 (2018 model) travel backpack review

Here’s an overview / review of the latest Osprey Porter 46 travel backpack – didn’t see a lot posted as most videos were for the previous model. They changed the design in 2017 and the same model continues into 2018. Color shown is the Castle Grey. Actual walkthrough starts at 0:32.

Quick note of things not mentioned in the video:

-In addition to the main compartment, the zippers for the laptop compartment are lockable as well.
-The shoulder straps detach/unclip from the bottom, so you can tuck both straps into the zippered slot on top (where the top of the straps start). This zippered compartment can be used for storing flat things when the straps aren’t being stored in it.
-Osprey offers an awesome lifetime warranty should something go wrong (I think you just need to pay shipping costs).
-I was able to get this bag for less than $100 on eBags (yes, travel is expensive, every penny saved counts). Timed the purchase right by combining a coupon code, AMEX offers, and using a cash back site.

Great review! Very helpful. Can the Porter 46 fit under a coach seat for domestic US flights and have some comfortable leg room? Thanks!

It looks like the rear of the bag isn’t forced away from your back like some of the smaller Osprey packs. Did you find your back got sweaty at any point?

I B Rawring does an awesome job reviewing the Osprey Porter 46. She is informative, detailed and professional in her presentation. Thank you for helping me decide which backpack to purchase.  Great job!

Casey Lance says:

How much padding is between your back and the laptop? If the laptop is on your back, but you bend over forward, facing down, so that your back is rounded somewhat, is it bending the laptop on your back? About to order this after watching your video, but thats my only concern. haha

Great video. Also been hunting down 2017 model videos and this was awesome to see; especially the castle grey color. Looks like a nice grey in your video. I’ve read that people think it more favors hunter green so I was relieved with your video.

Anything you don’t like about the bag?
