FIRST LOOK – Transporter Wheeled Duffel

They see me rollin’ with the NEW Transporter Wheeled Duffel

When you’re fully loaded and exploring the most exotic destinations, travelling can take its toll on your luggage, and your body. Even on those bigger trips, the thought of packing up and lugging an overloaded pack to the next location, shouldn’t be something to dread.

Designed for when the load gets too heavy to shoulder, Osprey’s new ultra-rugged Transporter Wheeled Duffel is the only way you should roll on your next adventure.

 

Made from 800D TPU-coated nylon for incredible abrasion and water resistance, long-lasting #10 YKK zippers with overlapping flaps to protect your gear from wet weather, the Transporter Wheeled Duffel will take anything you throw at it. Let’s not forget the all-important HighRoad™ chassis’s oversized wheels that allow you to roll smoothly over the rough surfaces encountered well outside of the airport terminal.

 

 

The Transporter makes packing less daunting with a large U-zip opening, internal mesh pockets to help you stay organised and dual internal compression straps to keep contents in place. Multiple padded grab handles make it easy to manoeuvre and lashing points help you secure the pack to cargo racks. All that’s left is for you to grab the handle and roll.

 

The Transporter Wheeled Duffel comes in 3 different sized volumes, so you can find the perfect fit for your next adventure. For the bigger trips and heavier gear, you can’t go past the 120L or 90L.

For weekend getaways and interstate travel, the 40L fits most carry-on requirements for Australian domestic and international flights, perfect as a standalone or complement to larger duffels.

Wherever you’re heading on your next trip, you can count on the Transporter Wheeled Duffel.

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them.

So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.

  • The Kitsuma 1.5 from @ospreyaustralia is one hell of a lightweight pack. Talk about minimalism. This is it folks! It holds a 1.5 litre bladder and a single pocket for your bare essentials. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • The @ospreypacks Savu lumbar pack allows you to carry two bottles at once so you can keep riding for longer. The pack is compact and secure, even on the roughest trails and has excellent storage options to store all your ride essentials. @ospreyaustralia ⁣⠀📸 @richardmcgibbon ------------
  • The @pnwcomponents Loam lever and Rainer dropper post is the goldilocks of set ups. With buttery smooth motion and an incredibly light lever action, this is a premium grade system that won’t blow your budget. 😊 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • We’ve been testing the new Seral, Savu and Kitsuma packs from @ospreyaustralia. All three packs offer something different and are aimed at day rides where you can carry the bare minimum such as the Kitsuma, or pack a little more with the Seral and Savu. The Kitsuma and the Seral use a bladder system. The Savu is a lumbar pack that has been designed to carry two bottles (no bladder). Whichever style of pack or riding you do, there’s now a great range to choose from. It’s good to see Osprey focusing on more mtb specific designs and what riders are looking for. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
