Bottom line...if you want a do-it-all bag, and love the light-packing style, you will LOVE this bag. If you just want a good carry-on, but intend to also shlep bigger bags full of all your stuff, there are probably smaller, lighter, more useful bags for you. In other words, this is the perfect bag for the "Rick Steves, Europe The Back Door" crowd.
First, the Porter 46 is quite roomy. For my trip, the bag carried a suit and dress shirt, two pairs of shoes, PJs, and 3 days of underwear and casual wear. I also had my security blanket, laptop + charger, 3 1" textbooks, a notebook, and toiletries. I also crammed in a Kelty hip pack that had food and electronics. Since that trip I've used it several times for weekend trips and can fill it with all the clothes I need plus 20-30lbs of tools.
The two handles on this bag are very comfortable and won't rub your hand raw if you choose to carry the bag rather than wear it. The backpack straps and hip strap are fairly comfortable--I wouldn't go hiking with this pack, but they are more than adequate for travelling (and they can be tucked away in the back panel). It fits just fine in an overhead bin. The gray sidewalls are stiff foam, which helps the Porter keep its shape and give it some protection from the savage baggage handlers. The two compression straps have clips to hold the loose end of the straps. There is a document pocket on the opening panel, as well as a pocket on the top of the bag, which is big enough to separate dirty or wet laundry, or a pair of shoes from the rest of the bag. There are 2 mesh pouches on the inside - one runs the length of the sidewall and one covers the inside of the opening panel.Read more ›
