The Transporter is a massive 50L pack that is ready for anything. The simple, effective design combined with top quality materials gives you a great waterproof pack.
The Transporter is designed for large stuff. The durable, waterproof all-round backpack made of coated polyester and Cordura takes up even huge bulky goods. With the adjustable lid, the reinforced base and external compression straps it is predestined for numerous transport jobs in tough environments. The contoured shoulder straps guarantee carrying comfort.
Ortlieb's Transporter 50L has a simple design with one large compartment and a single, small drop pocket within it. There are two padded shoulder straps and a carry handle to makes things easier when it's at full capacity. This pack has two buckles to close it and two for compression with a number of gear loops for adding kit externally such as rear lights, for commuting.
The construction is, as usual, top quality from Ortlieb. The heavy duty polyester is coated to make it waterproof and there are Cordura patches on areas of high wear to further ensure durability. This is an ideal option for a pack if you are looking for a basic, large capacity, waterproof bag. If you need more pockets or features to organise your kit then you might want to look for a different model.
