The Osprey Porter 46 Backpack is a midsize backpack for backpacking Europe. Not too big and not too small, this middle of the road size offers 46L of space. Pile in your clothing and toiletries, then zipper your passport and other travel documents into the front pocket. The StraightJacket™ compression straps with wings protect and tighten the load. Carry via the shoulder straps and hipbelt, then when it's time for the airplane, stowaway both to prevent them from getting ripped away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive bag, but poor color choices Great pack in terms of function. The belt could use better padding. The grey is not grey, but a dingy green. The red screams attention, which is hardly what a mature, intelligent traveler wants while in a foreign place. The teal would better appeal to a junior high girl than an adult. Osprey, please consider that travelers want an understated but handsome and classy look, and rethink the palette you offer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pack for Travel - Don't take anything else! Our family made a 20 day trip through Italy with the Porter 65 (husband and wife), Porter 46 (three older kids) and Porter 30. These were MORE than sufficient to take all our necessary clothing, toiletries, shoes, electronic accessories, etc... The Porters fit in the carry-on compartment for the overseas flights - they ratcheted closed easily and compactly. They fit all our different body shapes and sizes comfortably and at times, for extended periods of time. There are sufficient pockets for keeping items separated. It's wonderful to have your hands free for carrying purses, passports, tickets, walking up stairs, hopping on trains... the possibilities are endless! These are our favorite packs to take ANYWHERE and for any trip. Thanks Osprey! Wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wheelchair friendly I use the Porter 46 as a day pack, traveling pack, work bag. Most big packs are too long. This works for wheelchair users. The pack doesn't ride to low which helps it clear the wheelchair back rest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very NIce Bag I bought this bag to go on a month long backpacking vacation where I would be taking on multiple flights. Fits perfectly within the guidelines of all the airlines we used. Lots of pockets for organization so its not all in a jumbled mess. Would highly recommend the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it Purchased two (one each) for my daughter and me for travel, not backpacking. I can't attest to long wear comfort. I like that the straps can be in use or packed away. I can carry my kid's if walking through large airport while wearing mine. She was able to independently handle/wear the pack when she took it to camp for a week. She is average sized 10YO, and the pack was large for her, but independently manageable. Plenty of hooks and the compressions straps can accommodate a wide variety. Tucked a jacket during travel, my kid had her sleeping bag for camp. For our trip, we each comfortably fit over a week's worth of clothing (wore 2x), requiring clothing for hot and cool temperatures. Jacket. Full toiletry bag. Couple books. Computer. Electronic cords. My camera gear (full sensor DSLR body, three lenses). And room for a couple souvenirs on way back. They EASILY fit in the overhead compartment. Slid righty in, no hold up trying to squeeze them in. That was a necessity as I do not like checking bags. I was worried about this, but they do meet requirements! I REALLY like the bag. The compression straps feel durable in combination with the wrap around flaps. I LOVE the open top "suitcase" style to easily pack/retrieve items. My first Osprey bag. The quality seems very nice. I expect to have for over a decade - much nicer than my last backpack that lasted for that long. Definitely plan to have for my daughter until she's an adult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve named him Chester This was so much more of a backpack than I was expecting. We bought 4 backpacks for our upcoming trip to Europe next month. I’m excited to try Chester out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent travel backpack! I bought this as my business travel backpack and it’s amazing. Rugged, sleek looking, tons of room, great features (like the compression straps) and lots of compartments. I’m able to pack an extra pair of shoes (size 14), one week worth of clothing (in packing cubes), toiletries, 15” laptop and at least a dozen protein/kind bars for snacks; and take this bag from the airport to the boardroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost the best travel pack ever...almost. I have been seeking out the very best carry on pack for extensive travel all around the world. I am an ex-pat living in Eastern Asia and travel 2-4 times a year during the semester breaks. I really need a pack that is light, super durable, has lots of room, and can withstand a car crash. I have had this pack for over 2 years now (the color I chose is no longer available...Green) and have taken it on 2 trips to Europe and 6 major trips around Asia and one to Africa. This is almost the very best pack ever. It is made for the person who can lock his belongings and never worry about someone rifling through it. If there is only one qualm it would be that if the pack is getting close to being slightly heavy the straps get very uncomfortable, almost like a pack from the 1970's. I know it is a great design to be able to unclip them and zip them away and tuck the hip straps away for the unexpected time the airline says you have to check it in which can happen. But I think it is a great feature since travelling to some regions we are left to unpredictable conditions. Some airlines have different standards for sizing that is allowed to be a carry-on bag. What I have learned is to not jam pack it so it can be more flexible to fit in the carry on box when checking in to the airlines. I know to make the straps more comfortable would take some serious designing upgrades that might take away much needed space for the traveler. I also understand that having durable backing and make it breathable is pretty much impossible as it would get torn for the way baggage handlers tend to treat luggage, this is a small price to pay to have such a good pack. I have had no other issue with it being a check in or a carry on. Too bad no bottle pouch, but it would get snagged on something. The padded handles still appear new and through much travelling it show little to no wear. Thank you Osprey once again. I own 4 Osprey packs and this one is by far the most useful.

Is this backpack suitable for hiking long distances? I am hoping to avoid buying a new backpack for my upcoming trip to Machu Picchu

Asked by: Emma
Hey Emma I am going to say no. That porter is more of a hybrid backpack and that means its harness system is not exactly built for comfort over length of time. It would assume you are packing it full of stuff, popping it on the airplane and you use the shoulder harness to haul the pack form the baggage claim to a car (freeing up your hands for other things). If you aren't carrying too much and keeping the weight low - it *might* work. There are a TON of backpacks that have stable framed harnesses that would work way better for Machu Picchu and they all fall within the Porter's price range. I highly recommend you pop on chat and talk with our reps so we can get you a comfortable and affordable pack.

ALL MIGHTY GUARANTEE - Osprey's Lifetime Warranty

When Osprey celebrated their 35th anniversary in 2009 they launched The Osprey All Mighty Guarantee. What that means to you is ANY Osprey product purchased at ANY time is covered. Any product, any reason, any era - the all encompassing Osprey lifetime warranty ensures their dedication to superior design, craftsmanship and quality of their products is backed up by their actions to replace or repair a pack so it lasts a lifetime. Or two.

Here are some details.... Osprey will repair for any reason, free of charge, any damage or defect in their products, whether it was purchased back in 1974, or ordered right now from this site. If they are unable to perform a functional repair on your pack, they will happily replace it. Osprey proudly stands behind the All Mighty Guarantee, so much so that it bears the signature of company founder and head designer, Mike Pfotenhauer.

Some Osprey All Mighty Guarantee FAQs:

What do I do if my Osprey pack needs to be repaired?
If you live in the United States and need a repair done on your Osprey pack, you will first need to obtain a Return Authorization number. You can do this by reaching their Returns Department at 866-314-3130, or using the information that is provided with a new Osprey pack.

What do I do if I just need a replacement pack part like a buckle?
Give Osprey a call at 866-314-3130 and they will take care of you.

How long will it take?
You can tell Osprey you need the pack returned by a certain date when you request a Return Authorization number, and they will do their absolute best to meet that deadline.

What if my pack is super dirty and stinks?
Clean it before you send it to Osprey to get repaired. The real reason is that there is a law that says if your gear is too dirty or odiferous (smelly), Osprey is not allowed to repair it and will just return it to you.

Do I have to pay for shipping?
A little bit. You are responsible for the cost of shipping the pack to Osprey, and they will pay shipping to return the pack via UPS or FedEx. Osprey cannot be held responsible if packages get lost in transit, so make sure you get a tracking number when you ship your pack out. Also, if you use expedited shipping be sure to let Osprey know (866-314-3130). They, in turn, will give your pack priority processing and return it using a similar expedited shipping method.

Do I have to register my pack to take advantage of this incredible guarantee, and/or need to be the original owner of my Osprey pack?
No! Osprey's All Mighty Guarantee is truly ALL MIGHTY. If you own an Osprey pack that needs to be repaired they will repair or replace it.

JUST A HEADS UP: If your Osprey product is not repairable and is replaced, the original product will not be returned to you. They will try really really hard to repair your pack, but if they are unable to make a functional repair, they will replace it. For products that are no longer in production you will be contacted by Osprey to discuss replacement options.

All good answers. So what is NOT covered?
• Osprey program packs or any Osprey pack used by outdoor programs are ONLY covered under Osprey's Program Pack Warranty, NOT AMG.
• Size and/or fit issues. Make sure you buy a pack that fits. Check out the size guide on Osprey product pages for more info.
• Personal preferences like colors you don't like, style of the pack, or not enough/too much room in your pack. Check the product description, features, specifications, and size guide to make sure you are ordering the right pack for you.
• Third party Repairs or replacements. Send your Osprey pack to Osprey and Osprey only to get fixed. Easy as that. And don't try fixing things yourself.
• Cosmetic wear and tear including any reasonable aging of your pack that affects only the appearance and not the function of your pack. Be proud of those scars!
• B.A.M.G. (Before All Mighty Guarantee) Repair Work. The All Mighty Guarantee applies only to repairs requested on or after January 1, 2009.
• A Osprey Hydraulics reservoir is covered by a limited 1-year warranty, which is the reasonable lifespan of a reservoir. Pouring and storing of warm/hot or boiling water in your reservoir WILL VOID your warranty, so don't do that. Reservoirs are NOT designed to contain or handle liquids at temperature.
