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 transporter zip top

(1/1)

The straps are well padded and slightly curved, which give it a comfortable carry overall. There’s also a detachable sternum strap with a whistle, in case you ever need it in an emergency (hopefully you won’t).

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.

Compartment

Osprey transporter zip top

(1/1)

The Transporter 40 is essentially a large 40L bucket you can throw a load of gear into. It’s easy to pack and maximize all the space inside, but we’d still recommend using packing cubes to compartmentalize everything and increase organization. Additionally, there are two compression straps that will help hold everything together, and while we didn’t utilize them too often, they are nice to have.

Carry-on

Osprey transporter zip top

(1/1)

What happens then, is that the main component of the bag has a hollow bottom (like a cave) that just makes the bag awkward when putting documents. Documents can't sit flat inside the bag (see video) and I just don't feel secure putting my items (such as a keyboard) inside of it due to the off chance that it snaps. I bought the bag in USA, but have since left the country. I will be contacting Osprey to see if they can arrange some form of return (If Osprey's customer service is reading this, please contact me if possible)

Size

Osprey transporter zip top

(1/1)

What a great bag this is!!!! Durable premium material! Spacious and a compartment with extra padding at the bottom to protect the laptop! Absolutely loved it. Highly recommended but bare in mind that it is a 30lt bag and I am a tall guy(1.93m) so size-wise it might be a bit big for everyday use for some people.

Strap

Osprey transporter zip top

(1/1)

And finally, Osprey provides an attachable shoulder strap that can turn the Transporter 40 into a messenger bag. We like to keep this strap in the hideaway harness sleeve so it’s always there if we need it, but you can opt to leave it at home if it’s not your thing. To attach the strap, simply clip the carabiners on each end to the attachment points on either side of the bag. It’s nice and straight-forward
