Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flexible system My wife and I each have a rust colored Meridian 22. We find it superb for travel. We've taken them to China and through Europe. The detachable "day pack" is a fine bit of design for flexibility. We've used it as a true day pack for excursions and as the holder of essentials when on a train or aircraft. The main pack has so far passed the changes within the mainstream air carrier community for carry on. It fits the overhead bins well. The detachable bag has (so far) been fine under the seat. With ONLY the Meridian we've traveled as long as 10 weeks with no embarrassment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Carryon I've Ever Owned I travel a lot and try to maximize the amount of packing space I have. This pack is really 2 backpacks on one. The upper pack zips off easily to separate from the lower one. The lower pack has a spacious main compartment as well as a sort of hidden back compartment where the backpack straps would be stored...but I removed those for extra storage space.The smaller top pack, while not exactly spacious can expand with the number of items you put on it. It has tons of padding so I put all my electronics in it. I use a lot t of tablets and can easily carry 5 of 6 here with no problem. If my pack won't fit in an overhead bin on an airplane a just separate the two and they always fit separately. Yet it's just one Carryon! It's really a brilliant system!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Choice for Carry On My husband and I each bought one of these for a two-week trip through Europe in 2015. We carried them on our flights, and didn't have to worry about checked luggage not arriving. It was positively liberating to walk around airports knowing that everything we needed for our trip was with us, and not having to wait at carousels, hoping we'd see our bags. The Meridians held everything we needed, and we loved the top pocket where we could put our liquids for customs to check. These bags are pricey, but they're worth every penny! We're taking them to Scandinavia next month and to Italy and Greece in 2018. And our son and his wife are taking them to England, Germany, and Iceland in September. I fully expect they will perform admirably!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great carry on size pack with removable harness I have been on three three week summer trips to Europe with this pack as well as overseas business trips. You really don't need that many clothes if you wash them once a week. Great pack. The first version I bought the handle ripped apart so they sent me this one, the latest. The handle screws will work themselves loose so go to your local auto parts store and buy some thread locking liquid. Hoepfully, this will solve the problem. Two other issues, one, the wheels are not that far apart so if you don't have the handle low enough the pack will tip to the side and you have to stop and right it. It would be better if the wheels telescoped out for stability. The second issue is, I am 6' 3" and the handle is not quite long enough. Three more inches would help. Other than that, highly recommend this good quality pack.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly engineered; unstable when upright & rolling Wheelbase is too narrow to support the bag when both main compartment and daypack are packed. This means the bag falls over when standing upright, and lurches to one side or flips over when rolling over the tiniest of bumps/cracks in a walkway. The curved metal backing in the daypack adds flex to the design right against the laptop compartment, which is bad for electronics. After only one month of use, the plastic bottom frame is already chewed up and the telescoping handle keeps working its way loose. I really wanted to love this bag, but will be replacing it ASAP.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Where's the hip belt?? What happened to the hip belt? Osprey makes high quality products. The earlier version had the full harness, hip belt and should straps. Now the Meridian has only shoulder straps. ALL weight is carried on the shoulders. A 20 lb load gets quite uncomfortable within a few minutes. I realize the pack is designed as a roller bag that can be carried as a backpack. The design is great for getting on/off trains and buses, grossly uneven cobblestone streets, avoiding muddy areas, etc. However, I can only tolerate carrying the pack short distances. Please put the hip belt on the Meridian.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it...still want to The main pack is awesome! Only way to improve would be to add a waist strap. Love the colour, the pockets, the set up, the tuck away backpack straps, it fits so comfortably. However, I'll be returning it. The day pack is so uncomfortable, it's unwearable. The neck piece is so narrow and the back of the neck so think, it started rubbing & hurting immediately when I strapped it into place. No adjustments made it better. Fixing that problem; I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. Adding waist straps to both packs, I'd be 100% in love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding! I have been a business traveller since 1984. This is the best luggage I have ever owned. Has literally been around the world from east to west 3 times and north to south once with lots of in between trips. Auto, air, boat, and even day packing. Longest hike with the entire pack and other gear 3 miles and 100 vertical feet change. I wouldn't take it on a longer hike because my hips don't fit between the wheels well. The day pack is really fine. I keep two computers and business equipment in the day pack and clothes etc in the base unit. Luggage handlers really aren't kind to luggage and it took 40 flight legs and three times as many road hours before they managed to tear off a part. Still didn't lose contents integrity and protection. Honestly, this is real quality gear. The only criticism that I have is that the screws that hold the telescoping handle on are perpetually working lose. Funny stories with HSA inspections and tiny screw drivers and a few tense moments. Almost worth the fuss for the stories. This is a great combo and I recommend it very highly.

Questions & Answers

Is this the newest version? Is there anything different other than the color and the removable bag dimensions? In the comparison is shows that this one does not have a hip belt is that correct? Thanks!

Asked by: TayandJul
Yes, this is the newest version of the Meridian Wheeled Convertible Luggage. The biggest changes to the pack are that the hip belt has been removed and the fabric has been changed a heavier denier of nylon. Other than color options there have also been small cosmetic updates.

Has anybody involved with the production of this video ever watched it?!... It would be nice if they actually showed what the inside of the bag looked like so we can have a visual sense of what and how much we can pack into the bag.

Asked by: Woolard

On the Osprey website it states you can purchase replacement parts if needed. Therefore is it possible to purchase the hip-belt separately and then add it to the 2017 version of the Meridian 22?

Asked by: dehni
​As of May 2017, there is no replaceable hip belt for this bag.

Can the bag be carried on when traveling in Europe on airlines such as EasyJet?

Asked by: kpj123
​This item is carry-on size for most domestic airlines, but you need to speak with EasyJet to be sure their carry-on guidelines are the same.
