Osprey’s Meridian 22″/ 60L roller bag meets the maximum carry on size for most airlines. This bag has many compartments, like a rear panel that can hold magazines or flip flops, an easily accessible external zip top pocket for liquids, and a detachable daypack for travel documents, lap tops (built-in sleeve), and reading material. Available in three colors.

The Osprey Meridian is roomy, easy to roll, and makes packing for a week-long trip a breeze.
I wish that this bag was a little bit smaller, so that I didn’t feel like I was going to be pulled aside to have my bag checked in instead of carry on. A hip strap that took the pressure off my shoulders on the daypack would make it more comfortable on long day trips.
I have traveled with the Osprey Meridian to a lot to bike events (Interbike, the National Bike Summit, and Press Camp) where you need to pack a pair of heels, nice dresses, something for a bike ride, and sometimes bike accessories like locks and lights while still leaving room for swag and brochures. The zip top pocket for liquids and daypack are a time saver when going through airport security. Even on those trips that I don’t use the Osprey Meridian, I always bring the detachable daypack. This is a well thought out bag, if it was two inches smaller it would be the perfect carry on bag. Still, it makes a pretty awesome travel bag if you don’t want to carry too much.
