Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Osprey Porter 65 Travel Pack

(1/2)

The shoulder and hip belt are both comfortably padded—especially the waist strap. The sternum strap is pretty standard as far as those go, and all of the pulls adjust with minimal effort on-the-go. You can easily lug a decently heavy pack around for a full day of travel without back or shoulder discomfort, thanks to the padded straps and ability to easily redistribute the weight.

Hiking

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/1)

I also purchased a Capture Clip from Peak Designs which allows you to fix the camera to the shoulder strap in place while hiking – a great addition to this pack.

Osprey Porter 65 Travel Pack

(1/1)

Katahdin at the northern end of the Appalachian Trail. (Wore a Osprey Manta 20 AG for the hike) I packed the Porter with a one person and a three person tent (poles, rain fly and footprints as well), 1100ml cook system, go pro, sunglasses, bug spray, sunscreen,headlight, flashlights, phone, backup battery, clothes for three days, trail shoes, three lbs of food, rain jacket, wind breaker, toiletries, 10 total AA and AAA batteries. Inside it could still fit more too!! Outside I strapped a small collapsible table under the compression straps. My pack was REALLY heavy but once on, it carried very well and comfortable for 1/8 mile I wore it

Compartment

Osprey Porter 65 Travel Pack

(1/1)

Speaking of pockets, the Porter has a solid variety of external compartments for quick access while traveling. The pocket at the top is described by Osprey as an easy access point for toiletries or liquids while traveling, but we’ve found it also works well for stowing a phone, wallet, passport, phone charger, and just about any other small miscellaneous item you might need in a pinch.

Carry-on

Osprey Porter 65 Travel Pack

(1/3)

I use it when I travel because it fits my parachute and gear needed and still fits in an overhead bin on a plane as a carry on. The sides are thick and sturdy to protect everything packed inside.

Size

Osprey Porter 65 Travel Pack

(1/1)

I am in the military and travel often on trips averaging about a week in length. I wanted a pack that was big enough to carry a full uniform (including boots) plus a week of civilian clothes as a carry on, something that packs in the 40-45 liter ballpark can’t do. This bag fits the bill. It has a tremendous amount of space and a very large amount of individual compartments to keep your gear organized, but will still fit in the overhead compartment of most larger aircraft
