That should segue well into the bag review because Osprey, I hope you're listening. Please do not discontinue this bag! If this bag ever breaks/fails, I hope it is still a current version. The bag is fantastic. It is highly versatile and can be deployed in many different ways.
It fits in EVERY overhead I've ever been in to include even the tiniest of the tiny. I am on an airplane 3-5 times per week and I have flown on all types of planes. The entire bag will not fit in the commuter planes, but if you remove the daypack, it will fit every time..... provided that you do not over-stuff the bag.
The big wheels make it so easy to roll over any surface! Cobblestones, concrete, gravel, grass/dirt... you name it, it will roll. Also, the big wheels help in keeping the bag upright and not tipping over.
The carry straps are perfect for those of us that check a bag and have a toolbox to roll to the check-in counter. The bag shoulders well and the wheels are wide enough to fit around the hips so they wont dig into your body. This only applies if you are in good shape and your body doesn't spill out of your clothing. I'm 5'7" 185lbs and it fits me well. If I had extra weight I'm afraid this bag would not be as comfortable while being shoulder carried. There is also a waist strap and a collar strap. The padding on all the straps is perfect for the weight that I keep in the bag, which is not light. I carry two laptops, Dell precision 15" and a Macbook Pro 17" and they add to the overall weight, but nonetheless the straps provide comfort for the limited time that the bag is on my back.
Regarding the Macbook Pro 17" I'm happy to inform that the daypack laptop pouch fits it snugly. Padding is ample and I use it to transport my Macbook to and from customer sites along with other vitals.
The bag can fit a lot of gear inside. I do not fill mine completely, I just carry enough airport survival gear to keep me entertained for the long hauls. Be sure to keep the things you want the most on the plane in the daypack and you now have a quick detachable entertainment pouch for the flight while all the less utilized stuff sleeps comfortably in the overhead.
The main compartment of the bag opens all the way up so you can pack it like a suitcase instead of packing it like a hiking bag. This is a big deal for me because I don't have to organize which items go on top in order of importance. It also helps with clearing TSA. Just unzip the main bag all the way open and run it through the belt wide open. Since I have purchased the bag, I have never been stopped during security screening in the US or even in pickier countries like Germany.
When I first received the bag, I removed every screw one by one and applied red Loctite to them to ensure that the bag does not start losing the hardware. I'd recommend this to anyone considering the first Osprey bag I bought shagged a few screws on the first couple of trips.
This is the best carry-on bag I have ever used and since I've ordered it and organized it with Think Tank pouches, my time at the airport is spent sipping coffee and reading books in lieu of security screenings and re-screenings and then repacking after TSA ransacks the contents.
I'd highly recommend this bag. Five Stars!
I was specifically looking for a carry on size (22" max) wheeled bag for my job and private trip. I'd been using polycarbonate carry on suit cases (RIMOWA & Somsonite) for the past few years.
During that period, I was carrying a laptop and a tablet in the separate bag, but I thought to carry all in one bag. Then my long research began…
Since it's a carry on bag which will be with me all the time, soft case was fine too. Then I started looking for a backpack capable bag for convenience. I found few cases, such as Timbuk2, Patagonia, EagleCreek, and e.t.c. I liked all these manufactures bags, but its capacity was mostly between 40 to 45L for 22" size.
Then I found this Osprey Meridian 22, which was large 60L capacity. I tried Osprey Ozone 22" 50L as well, but it was a bit too small for my use. This was probably one of the largest capacity 22" carry bags I've seen.
One noticeable difference between Meridian and Ozone was the handle bar shape (single arm handle bar vs. double) and the way they stand up. Meridian stands up straight, then Ozone stands up a little angled.
2, like & dislike :
I've been using Osprey backpacks since 90's, and I like their products a lot. This Meridian offers same Osprey style usage in every detail. It's easy to use, and comes with many compartments and pockets.
It has a plenty room as a carry on. Although I've tested the backpack function, I have never used this bag on my back when I'm traveling. Unless I get unexpected number of bags, such as souvenirs toward the end of trip, I realized I will not use backpack function. So it's an extra insurance for me.
At the same time, as I searched non backpack capability wheeled bags, nobody offered 60L capacity bag. So, whether I use the backpack function or not, this was my final choice.
Backpack straps is removable from the case. However, removing them doesn't make the main compartment larger. You could probably put some shirts, towels, and socks in that space though.
Main compartment has normal size room (assuming it's around 40L). Thus detachable outer pack makes a difference, compare to other carry on bags. This detachable outer pack is extremely useful for me at the airport. As I go through the security gate, and must pull out a laptop and other liquid bottles, it is very convenient. It does hold 15" Macbook Pro for no problem, and there is a laptop padding as well.
I no longer have to open the entire bag (on my old polycarbonate case). Outer pack also holds pens, notes, newspaper, wallet, and so on. It comes with all kinds of pockets. Its design is very similar to Osprey messenger bags.
Also, once I'm in the airplane, I detach the outer pack and leave it under the seat. I leave all of my essential items in there. Very convenient and useful.
Because of this 60L capacity, and many compartments, you can carry lots of things and they can be organized. Extra 20L capacity is precious for air travel.
My only concern about this bag is durability. It's made out of nylon. So, I will never check this in. I've a feeling this is not durable enough with other hard suitcases. Even when you carry it with you, you may need to handle with care. Just be gentle to make its life longer.
I've traveled with this bag for more than 20 times. It's been working fine for me.
3, Recommend this product to :
Folks who are looking for a large capacity carry on bag with wheels. Just in general, I would recommend this to anyone. This is a well designed bag.
4, Price :
MSRP $330 seems expensive but compare to other manufactures' carry on, it seems the market average price for this capacity and function. I bought the first one (brand new) at $275. Then, I bought another one for my wife at around $230 (on sale).
