I’ve been a big fan of Osprey backpacks since my first backpacking trip way back in 2009. It actually wasn’t my backpack, it was Sam’s but I was so envious.
Sam’s Osprey backpack had cost a little more than mine but the extra £50 he’d spent could be seen in the quality and design. His backpack just felt nicer. It was stronger but lighter, more practical but more stylish.
Nearly 10 years later and Sam still has that backpack and I wouldn’t be surprised if he still has it in another 10 years – although maybe just as a reminder of his adventurous youth.
Osprey is awesome so I’m very excited to have an worth £130 to give away!
Here’s what Osprey say about the Transporter…
AdventureProof. Transporters are tough, high-quality duffels designed to withstand the rigours of adventure. Representing the pinnacle of performance in expedition-style duffel bags, Transporter features premium, highly durable materials, a water-resistant design and an extremely comfortable carrying system.
Transporter 95 is the perfect companion on your adventures. Easily big enough for your technical equipment, the Transporter 95 will quickly become a firm favourite for packing up your expedition gear into and heading out on a big adventure.
Very tough, TPU laminated nylon provides exceptional durability while remaining light and soft to the touch. The construction patterns and materials of Transporter have been chosen to provide a high level of weather resistance and the ability to withstand a lot of punishment.
A yoked harness with sternum strap ensures that the load is carried comfortably. When not in use, the harness can be stowed inside a cleverly designed sleeve. Transporter 95 also features detachable load lifters, which add a significant amount of comfort and effective load transfer into the harness of this pack. External end pocket, a pocket under the lid and internal compression straps help to keep the contents organised, whilst an ID card holder ensures you’ll know which duffel is yours immediately. A large U-shaped opening gives easy access to your contents.
Transporter 95 is a brilliant all-round travel pack, offering the performance and durability of an expedition pack with the comfort and innovative features that Osprey is well renowned for.
Let’s put that simply, the Transporter is tough, durable, big enough for everything and a real adventurers backpack.
Osprey currently have a team of travelling around the world with a 95L Transporter duffel, passing the pack on to a new team member every couple of months and sharing their story on social media along the way. You can follow along and see what they’re up to with the hashtag #OspreyAdventureProof.
