Feels like a nice roomy pocket carry things you need quick access to. I thought this was nice having openings in zipper pulls for attaching lock. I like it my zippers together. One lock for all four zippers. I could probably use a short cable if I had to. I probably wouldn’t put anything in front pocket I’d be worried about. This uses the “U” style zipper opening giving easy access like most carry-on luggage. Plenty roomy enough some organization Fit a tablet or small notebook. Another zipper opening. This is padded, another tablet, or small netbook. This divider is padded on both sides. I’d use this pocket for a tablet and the other for a notebook computer. I would like to get down to one carry-on without needing another case for electronics. But my notebook is a 17.3 inch. Here is the massive huge compartment. That’s the quick access top pocket. Quick access top pocket. When not using quick access pocket. You’ll have additional room in main compartment. See this is nice and roomy. This may actually be too big for me. I might have to size down. Has two zipper compartments. This is not mesh. Here is the solid material pocket. There is a Velcro closure possibly for secret storing. That may be for removal of stiffener board. Then, this side we have this large roomy mesh pocket. See how this works for me. Here, pull shoulder straps out first. Sternum strap. (Blowing Whistle) Nice whistle! Now let’s see what we got there. That’s much easier. that’s pretty nice a little more padding than I was anticipating. Good solid clips Turn it into a backpack by fastening should straps to each hip belt. These load lifters clip to pack. I didn’t think they would be useful. But when I trekked the Appalachian Trail they take load off the shoulders. Taking lots of weight off the shoulders. Looks pretty nice. I’m very pleased with this. I thought there might be a pocket here. I would to have had like a mesh pocket here. Although they provided should strap connectors. Osprey did not provide a shoulder strap. What I’m going to do now. Is show you the carry-on I’m replacing, the damage it was done to it. I’m going to cut away here to make editing easier. Here is my US Traveler carry-on It has been very nice, I liked it. I still like it. However, on my last trip September 25, 2016. After checking my bag. It was pretty much murder to drag it through the airport. I mean, drag this carry-on. and the reason I had to check it is because the plane I got on — normally this fits Plane was actually smaller, at least the overhead compartment. Check it out, still packed from my recent trip. Still packed with everything I returned with. I actually took this on the Appalachian Trail. Has had pretty good wear, still looks good, the Marmot name is about gone. But it is light. It worked. I picked this up when I was on the A.T. on one of my in-town stops at Walmart. the poncho I had was a way to heavy, I grabbed this up for approximately $30. it’s a Frog Togs. Actually pretty nice. Before my first travel I checked on YouTube and people were talking how nice packing cubes are. These here are the eBags brand. They actually are very nice and useful. I believe this is their titanium and black. I like the mesh here so I can see what’s in each of them. I made sure that I got three exact same size I use these like drawers in a dresser. unmentionables and night clothes. this is my shoe bag last trip I didn’t take dress shoes. I carried bag anyway. just to make it easy and convenient. I included toiletries, first aid, Band-Aids, super glue, hand wash, some perfumes, and a travel sewing kit. It fit conveniently in this section right here. this was plenty for me. that’s what I carry here That’s what’s going into the Osprey Porter 46L. This is the sole reason I’m even replacing my carry-on. This carry-on has a top, side and bottom handle. See these wheels? The front ones are in good condition. This one here has some damage. Apparently, my luggage was dragged against asphalt or concrete. See even here. Definite wear and tear on the hard plastic. The wheel is well worn The axel slides up and down from its center hole. The axel is bent this has been drugged asphalt maybe concrete I noticed how difficult was pulling this through I shouldn’t say pulled because I literally was dragging it through airport. I’m sure somewhere along the line I could buy a wheel and replace it. I’m sure it’d happen again … with the Osprey I shouldn’t have that problem. At least I don’t have to worry about the wheels. I can just throw it on my back, over my shoulder or just carry it This is what I’m replacing with the Osprey Porter 46L. I’ve returned to the Osprey Porter 46 liter backpack travel bag is going to go ahead and right now step this with one hand previous bag in the same manner as a little pocket not as deep as a US Traveler but it still fits and Is everything going to fit? I will have to pack a little differently, it looks like. just doing this right now Without repacking because I will change some of this stuff out. This might turn out to be the correct size needed. I’m going to return my jacket back in here. once Once, I give this a thorough examination. I will likely pack much differently. Probably do a video to show I recently did a box opening of this backpack travel bag. Doing this pretty much on the fly… Compression straps, guess I should have loosened them up first. They were cinched down rather tight. Give that a good cinch. Give that a good cinch. Let’s try that again. I don’t want them to get caught on anything if it’s checked that’s much neater at a 45 degree angle. Tuck it under, reducing the chances of– I can probably since that just a little bit more now let’s compare the size — visually — well the Osprey looks roughly the same the same height. Osprey thickness I guess they’re about the same also maybe I should’ve measured, after I pack this differently it may look a little smaller I could probably compress that just a little bit more but yeah I’m pleased with it like this because it helps give extra durability to the sides I like having handles on both ends also. I’m going to start packing lighter. several dress shirts casual shirts several Tees, base layers two pairs of socks pretty much it’d be nice if it came with a rain jacket cover The best thing Osprey could have gone was add a shoulder strap. Even the way I packed just now, there is still room to use top access pocket. keep wallet stuff like that here Zip these more to side and lock them all up together. it will be at least a couple of months before i travel again probably in December depend on how things go and that will be the ultimate test to see how this holds up and going to be questioned about the size and fitting in the overhead Thank you for watching!
