International travel is hard enough – especially right now – without your choice of carry-on adding to the challenges. Because nobody wants to hear those dreaded words from a flight attendant: “I’m sorry, that’s going to have to go in the hold”. Osprey’s Transporter Global Carry-On Bag is custom-made to avoid those stressful scenarios. Compact enough to conform to the permitted dimensions for a carry-on bag on even the most stringent of budget airlines, it’s a durable case with plenty of internal organisation and a padded sleeve to keep a laptop or tablet snugly protected from shocks and impacts. The clamshell opening makes for quick and easy access to the contents (ideal for last-minute passport panics at the check-in desk), and a zip-away harness and hipbelt makes it easy to swing it onto your shoulders and carry it like a pack when faced with bumpy ground, leaving all those rolling suitcases trailing in its wake
The Osprey story started in California in the 1970s, with one man, a sewing machine and a vision to make the world’s best outdoor packs. Today, it’s one of the most recognisable rucksack brands, relied on by athletes like Olympian Victoria Pendleton and elite mountaineers like Himalayan record-breaker Nirmal Purja.
All of Osprey's packs share the same twin hallmarks of fit and comfort. In fact, Osprey was an early adopter of breathable mesh, ergonomic hip-belts and packs designed specifically to fit women. Breathable back panels are still a feature of all their packs, and all except their most lightweight bags come with adjustable back-lengths for a perfect fit.
And in a world where outdoor enthusiasts are increasingly conscious of our environmental impact, many Osprey packs are made from durable recycled fabrics, while all feature PFC-free water-repellent coatings.
