The Osprey Meridian 75 convertible wheeled system is designed for today’s adventurous flashpacker. Sometimes you need both luxury and gritty necessity on your travels and the Meridian gives you these and so much more. Its travel durable fabrics, smooth wheels, and lightweight construction lend you a certain amount of freedom, while you easily glide in and out of the crowds with your wheeled luggage and then promptly switch it to your back to get to your off-the-beaten-path destination.

While you maybe able to get away with work gloves, the same is not true for packs, whether you just want to take lunch and spare goggles or hit up backcountry laps, it’s an item that needs to be perfect to you and for the task. Which is why after a few years of dealing with less than perfect packs for me, I’ve returned to Osprey Packs,whose main focus is fit and options.
