FIRST LOOK – Transporter Wheeled Duffel

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.

Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I'm also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

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.

  • RIDE CONCEPTS POWERLINE – SHOE REVIEW
Aimed at the enduro and all-mountain crowd, with a superior fit and construction to most other flat pedal shoes on the market. The @ridecncpts Powerline is a shoe that is very hard to beat. 🤟🏼 Read the review in our bio link. | Photo credit: @seaninthedirt | Rider: @instarrdan

  • They’re baccccckkkkk... The Loam Grips are back and fully stocked (just like questionable 90s fashion, but better!)
  • Whether you're going for a day trip or a week of adventures, The North Face Base Camp duffles are roomy enough inside for all your gear. Just keep on cramming kit in there and you'll be surprised how much you can get into this is the iconic, super tough expedition duffel. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • How do you carry your junk? @allmountainstyle seem to have it all wrapped up with their OS Strap. 👍🏼 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • Threading our way through to the weekend with the @monsroyale MTB gear.🤘🏼 📸 @richardmcgibbon

  • The weekend is one more sleep away. What are your plans? 😛 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • The @granite_design ROCKnROLL is a perfect companion to take on those longer rides where a trailside fix is crucial to getting you home. The whole package weighs only 136g, so adding it to your pack or hip belt is low-cost in terms of weight, considering the ROCKnROLL has all the bits that you'll need to do your trailside fix. Now you can live the ROCKnROLL lifestyle you've always dreamed about!
  • Wow! Pretty much sums up what we thought of the @hentydesigns Enduro Backpack. If you're intrigued by these new age bum bags then have a read of our review on our website. | Photo credit: @richardmcgibbon
  • WHISTLER PERFORMANCE LUBES

There is a concern that eco-friendly products are not as effective as non-eco products. We have to call bullshit on this. The WPL range of lubricants is as good, if not better, than any non-eco friendly product on the market. best of all it doesn't harm the environment or you! | 📸@richardmcgibbon | #lube #lubedup #silkysmooth
  • With so many hydration gels, tabs and powders out there, it can be a little bewildering which ones to choose. We all have our favourites and over the years we tend to stick with what we know, so when we discover a new brand, we’re a little reluctant at first to go and spend our hard earned money on something that we don’t know will work for us, but after reading about @hdxmix story and the founder behind it, we must admit, we got very interested, indeed. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
