SuperAlto's Travel Reviews: Osprey Porter 46 Travel Pack

All ratings are out of 5 possible points 

Overall: 5


We bought four of these packs for our trip, and would recommend them to anyone who wants to travel light. They are small enough to carry on the plane, but roomy enough to hold all of our gear for three weeks. The straps are adjustable: the packs fit both my 5'0" daughter and my 6'3" husband. The hip belts enabled us to carry a reasonable amount of weight. My pack weighed around 18 pounds, fully loaded, and DH's weighed probably twice that (he bought a lot of books along the way). We were especially grateful a couple of times during our trip to not be dragging giant wheeled suitcases behind us: the time we had to sprint to catch our train (which had moved to another platform), and the day we arrived in Venice to find all the vaporettos on strike, leaving us to walk to the hotel with our luggage.

Yes, that pile is all the luggage we carried for a three-week trip!
