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.

Zipper

Osprey transporter zip top

(1/1)

I was going to get the Osprey Transporter zip top (old version) because it was on sale, except the picky part in me doesn’t know how to feel about the zip water bottle pockets. I personally prefer stretchy side pockets like the newer one, but an added benefit to the zip side pockets is the security. If you do get one of these, please update us on how you like the features of the old or new!

Laptop

Osprey transporter zip top

(1/2)

The inner design of the laptop sleeve. They seemed to have changed the design between their pixel and this transporter bag. Previously, the sleeve is part of the entire component of the bag in their pixel. But for their transporter zip top, they seemed to have separated this

Commute

Osprey transporter zip top

(1/1)

I have been bike commuting to work and taking this bag to the climbing gym for about a month and a half now. I debated between the smaller transporter packs and packs from other companies, but chose this one because of the simplicity of the design and capacity. I am really happy with this pack and it feels like Osprey thought of everything. Generally when I leave my house in the morning, my pack is full with climbing gear, a change of workout clothes, work shoes, my laptop, a book or two and breakfast and lunch

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.

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
