Osprey has produced some great backcountry backpacks over the years and now you can get that same great Osprey quality in an airline bag.

The Osprey Meridian Wheeled Convertible Pack is a versatile rolling backpack for the serious urban traveler. Complete with over sized wheels, a detachable daypack, hipbelt, and laptop sleeve; the Osprey Meridian Wheeled Convertible Pack will take you and your gear anywhere you need.

The Osprey Meridian Wheeled Convertible Pack can easily convert from a rolling pack to a backpack complete with hip belt in no time. The shoulder straps and hip belt can be found in a zip away pocket on the back of the bag.
