The Boy Scouts of America announced that 2013 Jamboree participants will be using this duffel from Osprey called the Osprey Transporter BSA. National Scout Jamborees are held every four years and this is the first at the new Summit Bechtel Reserve after 30 years at Fort AP Hill in Virginia. In addition to this new high adventure location, this Jamboree marks a departure from previous events. Beginning this year, tentage and other camp supplies will be provided by Bechtel so that local councils will not be required to acquire and transport equipment specifically for the Jamboree. In an effort to help control transportation costs and the amount of space each camper will use while at Jamboree, BSA is limiting each participant to the use of one of these issue duffel bags. But don’t worry, at 7015 cu in (115 liters), there’s plenty of room for a Scout’s clothing and gear. In addition to haul loops, the Transporter also incorporates stow able shoulder straps. These are awesome bags and I often use smaller version as a carry-on for short trips. No word yet if the BSA model will be available for purchase by those not attending the 2013 National Scout Jamboree. The Jamboree gear transport concept is excellent is and Osprey is a great partner for BSA.
