Whether you want to go on an adventure trip, or you have to go for a short outstation duty, you can ill afford to wait for the luggage at the airport. But, at the same time, you can not risk compromising your trip comfort by not carrying some items that you might need during the trip. In such a case, you require a carry-on bag, which is light and comfortable to carry and yet spacious enough to accommodate all your required items. If you have to travel by air and then do some trekking in a mountainous terrain, you need a bag, which can be rolled on smooth surfaces and carried on your back comfortably in craggy areas. You need a convertible like Osprey Sojourn 45L/22″ Carry-On.
The lightweight wheeled backpack bag has a sturdy trolley arrangement including high clearance rollers and a dual tube extended handle with multi-layered side handles (for short carry and maneuverability) and arguably the best backpack suspension. These multiple carrying options, its rugged design, and spacious panel make this carry-on bag an irresistible proposition for a traveler.
It comes fitted with backpack suspension with a harness, hip belt and a back panel that is removable. This makes it very comfortable to carry this backpack. When the back panel is removed, you get extra storage space. The main panel has lockable zipper arrangement. Four zippered pockets and dual front panel daisy chains enable you to arrange all your gear. Internal compression straps not only hold the clothes securely but also help to reduce the size of the pack, when required.
This convertible is available in 3 color options, Hoodoo Red, Flash Black and Nitro Green. The Osprey Sojourn 45L/22″ Carry-on weighs a mere 7.7 pounds and its dimensions are 22″x14″x9″ so that it fits in most carry-on sizes. It is covered under the Osprey All Mighty Guarantee, which includes almost an all-encompassing repair/replacement guarantee. However, the same needs to be confirmed before purchase. It is made up of the best material, 1680D ballistic nylon and 420D nylon Shadow box. Priced at around $300.00, it is a real steal deal.
This multi-purpose bag is an ideal choice for any adventure lover, the short trip traveler or any other type of camper. The sturdy and ergonomic design, size and mostly its multiple carrying options make it the most user-friendly pack. The bag is very useful for almost all travel purposes, however, it is best suited for an adventure trip. It scores a full 5-star rating on this count.
Pros and Cons
Its size, quality, and comfort are obviously unmatched. However, the one standout pro is its multipurpose nature.
There are no major drawbacks of this bag, but the spaciousness can turn out into a con sometimes. If it is packed to its maximum limits, then it might not fit into the carry-on size of some airlines.
