Wow is this bag built tough, and I am not talking about a Ford PU... This bag built to carry heavy loads and make it through the airports from point A to point B... I'm looking forward to using it to my trip to Las Vegas...
I travel across the country with my backpack, and this pack cover protects my valuable gear. The harness and straps are durable, so it makes carrying easy when you have a heavy pack. In addition, there is extra room in the cover pack for additional items you may pick up along the way. One thing I was concerned with was my sleep pad; however, it fits great in the cover pack, and I can pack it standing upright. Overall, worth the money. Plus, I can lock my pack with a TSA approved lock.
Previous airport adventures left my older pack looking like some of the straps and cords had been use as a teething ring for a baby hippo. I was not a happy camper! The Osprey Airporter LZ Pack Cover was my solution! Not only is it compact and able to be stored within itself. I was able to place my Osprey Aether 70 fully loaded with my extra gear and hiking poles for my trek to Machu Picchu in there as well. The whole trek to get to Peru and back home to the land of the Buckeyes took my pack through 7 airports, a several cars, a few vans and one truck without a scratch! The bag did its job and came through without any tears, rips or holes. While the shoulder strap could have had a little more padding, it served its purpose. I was very pleased with the product and will use it to protect all of my packs during my future excursions!
"Served it purpose well, but could have nicer handle."
I got this to protect my Osprey pack while traveling internationally. I have a 55L Pack, and got my airporter accordingly. Even with a (super) full pack in there, I could still fit another small bag and my hiking books. It definitely protected them from the harsh airport environment. The bag folds into itself (there's a top pocket), and I personally think it still takes up space like that. After living out of a backpack for 5 months, this definitely came to fe seen as a space-waster. I am super glad I had it for airports, but otherwise I never used it. This is party because of the carrying strap. When there's about 40-50 pounds of weight in it, the strap becomes like death for any arm or shoulder it's placed on. I shelled out the coin for a cart to tote it around in airports or else I would have dragged it. Overall, good for protecting your pack, not good for using as a pack.
I got the Osprey Airporter for some international travel. It's size and durability made it worth every penny.As with most trips, I came back to the US with more stuff that I left with, and I filled this sucker up. It easily held my hiking pack, my day pack, a yoga mat and bags of clothes and other random items. It only got damaged after I returned to the states and a cat stuck a claw through it. There was only a very small hole so no big deal, but if you are crashing somewhere with cats definitely keep this awesome bag out of reach.
