- I just spent 3 weeks in England and Spain and used the Osprey Ozone 22 as my primary case, along with the Osprey courrier bag. Both are carry-on bags and they accommodated and amazing amount of clothing and accessories! Lots of pockets and side panels and more than enough room to get me through those 3 weeks. I did some laundry along the way, but by using both bags, I was well outfitted for almost any occasion. And the bags were light enough for me to handle them myself getting on an off buses, metros, up and down stairs, and lugging them through town. The lime green was also easy to pick out when I did decide to check it through on the plane. I highly recommend the Osprey Ozone 22.
Questions & Answers
Thank you for your question.
I measured the exterior at 23.5" x 14.5" x 9" (HxWxD), and the interior at 20" x 14" x 5"/6" (depth is greater on the sides). The handle is quite stable, with just a slight bit of side-to-side play when extended, and a locking button for easy releasing or retracting.
In regards to a comparison with the Shuttle 22, the differences are going to be primarily organizational, as well as materials. The Ozone uses lighter fabrics all around to cut weight, but that will decrease long term durability. It also uses smaller gauge zippers to cut weight, and features basic nylon grab handles, while the Shuttle has foam backing on all grab handles for a more comfortable carry. For pocket configuration, both feature a main compartment, a zippered top pocket for items that you need handy (Shuttle's top zippered pocket is slightly larger), and a large, shallow back pocket with ID holder, designed for magazines (Shuttle is a velcro closure, Ozone is zip). The Ozone features two, tall front zip pockets on each side, perfect for water bottles, and a zippered mesh interior pocket on the back of the large, main compartment. The Shuttle features two smaller front pockets, and three zippered mesh interior pockets on the back and sides of the large, main compartment. Lastly, the Shuttle features a more comprehensive compression system, with two adjustable nylon straps running across the front of the bag, and additional connection points for these buckles near the back of the bag for when the bag is near-empty. For compression, the Ozone features two side compression straps near the top of the bag.
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
