Osprey is well known for its lightweight frame packs, the big backpacks that can hold several days’ — or weeks’ — worth of gear and clothing for extended hikes in the backcountry. The company also makes incredibly lightweight wheeled luggage in a line called Ozone.
The Ozone line has wheeled luggage options in 22-inch-high and 28-inch-high bags. The two are identical otherwise, with the 22-inch bag fitting easily in overhead bins on airplanes. And because it’s so light, you can more easily hoist it above your head. The new versions of the Ozone bags are 22 percent lighter than past iterations for a significant weight reduction of an already light bag.
The suitcases have several pockets: three internal zip pockets with compression straps, three external compression straps, and two full-length external zip pockets on the front panel. There’s also a rear pocket that can hold reading material so the 22-inch bag can stand alone as your sole carry on.
While sturdy, this soft-sided bag may present problems if you are checking it and trying to transport fragile souvenirs or even toiletries. This has the potential to be a fairly significant drawback to purchasing the bag, so take your intended use into consideration before buying.

Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices. El Poble-Sec is one such area that rests between the towering Montjuic park and the Old Town, making it a nice escape but still close enough to access the sights.
