Osprey creates a lot of great bags. It seems every week I have to add a new Osprey carry on bag to the website.
The Quasar is a reasonably small one bag that looks to be more suited for short trips. With only 28L of capacity, you'll have less than half the amount of clothing space of a 40L or 45L model.
Remember, even though you can half the clothes doesn't mean you can use half the toiletries and other miscellaneous items. Imagine trying to bring half a travel deodorant. Are you cutting the stick with a razor blade?
This particular model of Osprey has a laptop sleeve, which many of the travel models lack.
Although the bag is small, Osprey still manufactures incredible bags. If you are looking to go on shorter trips, then this bag is perfect for you.
This bag would be perfect for people that live in Europe that can do weekend trips. Fly out on a Fri and fly home on Sunday type of deals. Here in the US that becomes more difficult and expensive.
One thing I like about this bag is that it could also function as a manageable day pack. If you had a safe place to drop off the extra stuff you could carry around adventure gear with the Quasar. Lugging around a bigger 40L or 45L bag for a beach trip with swimsuit and suntan lotion is way overboard.
This bag can be used as a carry on in 99% of airlines.
