The Osprey Porter 46 travel pack delivers load-carrying capability, 2807 cubic inches of storage capacity and a comfortable fit. At 22" x 14" x 9", it is the maximum approved size for domestic carry-on use.
Padded shoulder straps allow you to comfortably carry the Porter 46 and tuck away entirely when not needed or for ease of overhead storage. An integrated adjustable sternum strap and stashable hipbelt further enhance fit. Built-in attachment points give you the option of using a strap (not included) for over-the-shoulder carry.
With 2807 cubic inches of storage capacity, the Porter 46 offers ample room for carrying clothes and gear. The main packbag is accessed by a wide-opening front panel zipper. Other pockets include a zippered top pocket for quick access to toiletries, a large front panel organizational pocket with separate laptop (up to a 15” screen) and tablet sleeves, and a streamlined front zippered pocket. Three internal zippered pockets aid in the organization and separation of contents. Osprey's patented external StraightJacket compression system ensures that everything remains snugly in place while you are on the move.
"Add On" compatibility means that you can attach the Osprey Daylite accessory pocket (sold separately) to increase storage by 750 cubic inches and maximize the versatility of the Porter 46 by equipping it with a detachable daypack.

Real Customer Reviews
- Solid Pack
Likes: Gobbles a ton of gear. The capacity really surprised me! Jammed a ton of stuff in this pack for a trip to Alaska.
Dislikes: Not as comfortable on the shoulders as I would have liked. This is not a pack you want to be walking around with for more than an hour.
- Great for Travel
Likes: Pack is great for travel, very comfortable while cruising from one destination to the next. Always fits fine in the overhead compartment no matter what size aircraft. Plenty of storage space if you are a seasoned traveler and don't bring extras.
Dislikes: The 2 straps that squeeze the pack together are great in keeping it compact however it can be hard to access pockets to grab items quickly without completely opening everything up.
- Versatile backpack
Likes: Lightweight, straps allow the bag to be compressed to smaller size when not full. This clamshell provides protection if the bag is checked. The main compartment holds a lot of stuff, but the bag sits comfortably on my shoulders/hips (I am 5'7").
Dislikes: Laptop compartment is in the rounded part of the bag in the front, so the compartment becomes bowed when the main section is full. If the laptop compartment was against the back, I would rate this 5 stars.
- Very durable and super organized!
Likes: The organization of this pack is absolutely fantastic. This was the biggest reason why I bought it, and to this end the Porter 46 fully delivered.
The versatility of this pack is also worth mentioning. There are durable and well-padded straps to hold it like a brief case and a backpacking pack.
I bought the green version of this pack so that I could stick out better in an airport in case my kids got separated from me. I normally don't like green, but this version is pretty slick, in my opinion.
Dislikes: I've owned the Osprey Atmos AG 65, so I know that Osprey can make an incredibly comfortable backpack. I'm 5'11 with a 44 inch chest, and this pack was not comfortable to wear when fully loaded. I assumed the hip belt was there to help hold the load on the hips like a backpacking backpack, but all it does is offer some additional stability and no transfer of load carrying.
The pack provides the opportunity to wear it like a shoulder bag, but it doesn't come with a strap. This isn't a big deal since it's an accessory, but the bummer is that I can't find anywhere on Osprey's website where they sell a strap for it.
