The Osprey Transporter 46 Duffel is a go-anywhere, carry anything sort of bag. Its large panel-access main compartment and large zippered end pocket provide easy access to and plenty of room for your gear. The included shoulder strap provides versatile carrying options, as does a sturdy side handle. A zippered pocket at the top holds smaller items, like a book or boarding pass. Travel is rough on everybody: don't tell me your butt isn't sore after hours sitting on a plane. Luckily, this bag has a padded bottom that protects whatever you put inside.

Showed up in a tiny plastic envelope, thought for sure I got shipped the wrong item. Turns out the duffel is just really light and packs down into itself pretty damn small. Good feature if you are trying to save space, but the material seems pretty thin and I wouldn't want to check it with the airlines. The photo looks like it's made of the same material as Osprey backpacks (thicker and more resistant to TSA agents), but the actual item is more similar to a nylon gym bag than an Osprey backpack. Other than being a little disappointed in the material durability, the construction is top notch as with other Osprey stuff I own. Smooth sliding zippers, perfect stitching, and well-thought out storage pockets, straps, and ergonomics. Overall a great overnight duffel for road trips or even a large gym bag, but wouldn't purchase as a checked-in luggage item. Keeping this bag for the purposes described and checking my Sampsonite roller with the airline psychos...
I actually picked this bag up with my rewards points and have been super impressed by it so far. Really well made. Tough material. Good pocket placement & design. Comfortable handles. Will most likely be getting a 2nd for my wife.
Bought this bag to use as a carryon. Perfect size for what I was looking for. Nice main compartment and a couple of smaller zippered pockets.I love the handles on the sides and top. The diagonal shoulder strap is a bit awkward unless you put the strap across your chest instead of on one shoulder. Also, I wish there was just a tad bit of padding on the strap.Other cool features: it packs into itself via the side pocket and the lifetime warranty.
"Great Option for a carry on. There is no handle to carry bag horizontal. Simple well made product."
You have to unclip the straps to access the main zipper area. The outer straps is what holds your stuff when packed full. It is a well made product and there is nothing like it in its price range unless you look at the other Osprey 46. The base does have padding in it for some form.
"Nice quality bag, may be best for intendid purpose."
I ordered this bag to use for the gym and my basketball gear. Overall its a very nice looking bag and it seems pretty sturdy. It also has a lifetime guarantee. Overall I would highly recommend this to travelers, etc, but if your looking for a quick everyday bag there may be something simpler out there for you. The shoulder strap is on a diagonal from corner to corner which seems to work nicely. It has backpack straps which are non removable and also a few zipper compartments. The good thing is that everything seems reinforced, BUT getting quickly in and out of the bag can be cumbersome. As far as my basketball gear, it holds a pair of sneaks & 2 basketballs nicely.
