International Carry-on vs. US Carry-On

International carry-on size restrictions can be notoriously challenging since so much of the restrictions are determined by where you are traveling. Here's a breakdown on just what to look for with your next trip.

Outside of the U.S. the standard carry-on baggage size is smaller (this relates to flights originating outside the U.S. and with a destination outside the U.S.) Here, the rule of thumb is about 21", and not the 22" and above carry-on size. As with any rule, exceptions abound and it is a good idea to visit the site of all of the carriers you plan to use while abroad to get a consensus. If you travel outside the U.S. on a regular basis or are looking to purchase a bag for someone who does, you might want to consider replacing the standard domestic sized carry-on bag in your set with an international carry-on sized bag. In terms of what the two bags will actually hold the difference is not that great and it may add some flexibility in your travels.

    Comments about Osprey TRANSPORTER 40:

    Great bag for daily activities or short trips. Solid construction and spacious. Multiple (3) smaller pockets are helpful for organizing and top pocket is great for quick access to rain gear or jacket.
    Main zipper was a little tough to open and close and a shoulder strap option would have been nice. My primary objection is the thin straps which become uncomfortable if lugging around a full pack all day.
    Overall a good option.

      Comments about Osprey TRANSPORTER 40:

      Downright the best duffel there is. I was after a slightly more user friendly gym-bag for daily usage and this ticks all the boxes. You get excellent access through the wide opening, above standard organisation with the various pockets, fantastic durability, easy carry with backpack-style and as one expects from Osprey - amazing quality and workmanship. This duffel will do the job for a long time to come. I know some people have said, that you don't have a shoulder strap and that there are no D-rings etc. For me this represents no down-side - of course this is a personal preference.

        Comments about Osprey TRANSPORTER 40:

        I just bought this bag to use for travel. However I think that this could become an everyday bag for me. I found the straps very comfortable to use in the various positions and the bag and zippers are very sturdy. The bag is strong yet light and the space is very usable. I only wished that the main opening was 180° the other way. With the current position, when you are carrying the bag as a backpack, there is a chance that the zipper can work it's way down accidentally over time. However, most people would not carry the bag that way for an extended period of time, so that should not be a big risk. Definitely recommend this bag.

          Comments about Osprey TRANSPORTER 40:

          Just received this.
          I am a shoulder strap guy for duffels and this doesn't come with one.
          While I knew that going in, they advertise d rings for attaching.
          There are no d rings,
          Only things they offer is a fabric loop, which seems poorly suited for the load of a shoulder strap.
          Seems it would not last long.
          A pain to have to return
          Its nice otherwise, bit a crucial omission.
          Marmot offers an alternative

          Comments about Osprey TRANSPORTER 40:

          Really like this versatile and do all duffel
          I don't use the grab handles as shoulder straps as they aren't overly comfortable for a long haul, good for quick trips
          I use this to organize my bike gear and short overnight trips
          Lots of pockets and stash options- makes it easy to organize and keep track of my gear
          Lightweight but super durable and easy to clean

          Comments about Osprey TRANSPORTER 40:

          Just got this pack, overall very impressed with the workmanship. 40 L is smaller than I expected, but I just managed to pack two dress shirts, six t-shirts, one sweater, a pair of chinos and a pair of jeans, plus a week of socks and underwear with enough room for a dopp kit, charger, and Nexus 7 and two medium sized paperbacks. My biggest complaint is that the D-rings heavily mentioned in the ad copy (" D-ring attachments for an optional shoulder strap") are not present on my model. Considering the relatively narrow backpack straps (necessary to pull double duty as duffel-style handles), not having a sturdy place to connect a comfortable shoulder strap is a big negative for me.

            + Inside colours add brightness to the day

            Cons:
            - Side zippered pocket could be bigger to hold two water bottles comfortably.

              I use this pack almost daily. From gym clothes/accessories to travel. Even with just 40L I find that I am able to pack for 7+ days if planned correctly. It's a great pack for air travel as you can easily tighten the harness straps and tuck away the excess web for storage and quickly extend the harness to put the pack back on.
