The Osprey Transporter 40 claims to be a “brilliant all-round travel pack,” but it falls short in a few key areas. While we like the hideaway harness system and compression cube, the lack of a water bottle pocket and laptop compartment are tough to deal with. View Details & Buy: https://packha.kr/64vb

In this review, we’ll be taking a look at the Osprey Transporter 40, a carry-on compliant travel duffel that can also be carried as a backpack or a messenger bag.
Osprey is a huge brand available all around the world, and you’ve probably come across them in the wild. In fact, we’ve tested the Osprey Farpoint 40 for nearly two years around Asia, and it’s one of our highest rated packs.
We’ve been testing the Osprey Transporter 40 for the last four months, and it’s seen use around the UK and the Portuguese cities of Porto and Lisbon. We haven’t been easy on it either, as it’s been in thrown in the trunk of a car, placed in overhead storage on a train, crammed into a locker at the gym, and even checked into the hold of an international flight. (Yes, despite what you might think, we occasionally need to check a bag.)
Osprey claims the Transporter 40 is a “brilliant all-round travel pack,” but we’ve found it falls short in a few key areas. The lack of a laptop compartment and water bottle pocket is a huge oversight, and the durability is a concern with the TPU coating scratching off after only four months of use. This being said, if you’re after a 40L pack you can fit a load of gear into and throw into the trunk of your car, or you like the idea of a packable bag you can check on your flight home, the Osprey Transporter is worth a look.
