(Updated Feb. 20, 2013) It may be a little early to start packing for the jamboree this summer, but I’ve got a sneak peek at what you’ll stuff all that gear into.
Take a look at the Osprey Transporter BSA, a sturdy, well-reviewed bag with detachable backpack straps and a classy 2013 National Scout Jamboree logo stitched on the side.
Every registered participant and staffer will get one of these as part of their jamboree registration fee, and it’s one bag that looks like it’ll hold up well beyond 10 days in rugged West Virginia this summer.
By the way, you’ll need to fit all your gear in this jamboree-provided duffel and your personal day pack. Fortunately, big items like your tent and cot are provided for you at your jamboree campsite.
The bag measures roughly 32 by 18 by 16 inches (length, width, and depth). The capacity is 115 liters (not the 95 I previously reported). There are three compartments: the main pocket, one at the top that also holds the backpack straps, and another on the flap of the main pocket.
