    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Travel Pack I used this product on a trip that took me through India and Europe. It held up great. It is well-constructed and designed. The wheels easily absorbed the cobble stone roads of European cities. The backpack harness is comfortable. The materials endured the abuse from baggage handlers. The rust color makes it easy to see from a distance. I have a few minor complaints. I wish the daypack was a little larger. I also wish the daypack's attachment zipper was beefier. I had no problems, but am unsure how strong this zipper is. When the main pack is full, it is difficult to attach the daypack and the attachment zipper is stressed. You may need to rely on the three attachment buckles instead, and they work great. Inside the main pack is a little smaller than I expected. It has nice compartments for organizing things. Materials are top-notch. My complaints are nit-picking. This is a very, very good pack. I have not seen a better one in this segment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged, versatile and stylish I got this for one- to two-week trips into the field for work in television production. I was looking for a medium-sized piece of luggage that was big enough to check but no so big it was cumbersome to wheel and carry and throw in and out of vehicles on the fly. This piece fits the bill perfectly. It's rugged enough for field abuse and international travel but stylish enough for business trips. It stands upright reliably. The wheels are beefy and instill confidence that you can take this piece anywhere. It is an extremely well thought out suitcase. The pack strap capability makes it super versatile and I like that you can remove the straps and use the remaining space for extra cargo. The daypack is a real bonus. It's sleek and nicely designed, with just the right combination of padded and zippered compartments. It's slim enough to easily slide under an airplane seat but big enough to carry a laptop, books, files, snacks, water and other necessaries. If there are any cons it is that the top of the luggage is rounded and sloping, so that it's hard to perch a carry-on on top of it. And if you are looking for something that isn't going to crush or wrinkle a suit or dress, it won't offer the same kind of protection as a squared off hard-sided suitcase. But if you're looking at something like this you probably aren't worried about that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trip saver I bought at least 7 different bags for my 40 day summer vacation this year. I returned them all when I found this Osprey. I actually looked at it several times and didn't think it would work. But to my surprise it turned out to be exactly what I needed. Handles on top and side for easy carry down stairs. Wheels for long bumpy walkways. Backpack straps with hip straps for really long ventures. The removable backpack came in handy too. I packed and unpacked this bag hundreds of times before I even left for my trip and many times on the trip and the zippers moved smooth every time. Each time I knew it was the right choice and a trip saver. My only complaint not really a complaint is that the removable backpack came with rope zipper pulls that could be cut if locked. It should also have locking zippers. I absolutely love this bag. Thanks Osprey

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag I had my first Osprey pack for 20 years and when I was getting ready for another large trip this was an easy choice. The wheel system is smooth. The backpack feature isn't a gimmick and actually works well. I like the removable daypack and use it often. It is a great item

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Luggage My wife and I just returned from a two-week trip through Italy. We had each purchased our own Meridian luggage sets, and both performed flawlessly. From the flooded streets of Venice (aqua-alta) and using the bags as full sized backpacks, to wheeling the bags easily over the narrow, cobblestone streets of Florence, to loading the bags onto tight train cargo areas on our way to Rome, the bags were perfect. Day trips and getting carry-on neccesities onto our flights were a breeze with the detachable daypacks (which perform better than most daypacks I have seen). I NEVER write reviews on products and have been an REI member since 1991, but just had to once we returned from this trip. As a former-life avid backpacker, you can't beat the features, build quality, and comfort of these Osprey luggage bags.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Wish I had purchased this years ago. Truly worth the cost. Feels light to pull when fully packed. Great inside space. I love that it can be carried as a backpack. Really well made and designed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Backpack and rolling duffle needed Brought for my son to travel on a service trip to rural area. Very pleased it packed all of the items he needed for an 8 week trip and he was able to manage strapping on a cot for the trip to a remote area. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite International Travel Bag This bag was perfect for a slightly over 2 week trip in Burma/Thailand, or even my 9 days in Mexico... If you plan to check a bag- this bag is great and I love that you have the option to make a backpack. I am getting a little old for backpack travel trips but like that in certain scenarios that it is easy to put on the back instead of wheeling around. But most of the time wheeling it around is all you need.
