"The best travel bag" (Posted on 18/01/2017)
- I used this bag when I visited Greece for 1 week and India for 3 weeks last year. Before this I used the Wayfarer 70 Women's specific which I found WAY to big. The more space you have the more you pack haha. Anyway if you are getting this bag you must buy packing cubes in order to maximise the space as there aren't that many pockets. The green inside contrasts amazingly with the blue of the bag and will look great with the raspberry pink packing cubes I just ordered as the two I had weren't enough for India, the blue also doesn't show the dirt as much as the red bag I had did, it has come back from India looking as good as new! I had many admiring glances from the other people on my tour as my bag was the smallest and sturdiest, not to say the most attractive. Some of the people packed bags that were too big and heavy for them to move, and I was able to move mine easily on my 5ft frame *smirks*. The harness system, as with my other bag, is amazing and holds it tight to your body and distributes the weight. The only annoying thing is I bought this to use as hand luggage and it is too big for international flights *sigh* but at least international flights include free hold luggage. I love Osprey bags so much that bought my boyfriend the Porter 46 so that he can travel with me. This bag will be going with me for a year in Australia, then will be heading to New Zealand. What are you waiting for? Buy buy buy.
"11 months of Abuse Withstood" (Posted on 24/10/2016)
This backpack is amazing. I used it for 11 months backpacking across South America. I was not delicate with this backpack and it has withstood everything I could throw at it. It was my main bag and all of the zips, pockets and straps are still in good condition. I can see where osprey got their great reputation. I would highly recommend this backpack to anyone wanting to travel long-term. It was more than sufficient for my needs and if you need something bigger...your packing too much!
It's ideal for travel as you can unzip the bag all the way. However I wouldn't recommend this bag for long days consecutive trekking because it doesn't have a built in strong frame or hugely supportive middle straps. Having said that a mate of mine did the W trek in Patagonia for 5 days using the 55 litre Farpoint and he was fine.
Couldn't recommend this pack highly enough enjoy!

- I have spent the last summer hiking in the Pyrenees, hopping around the Greek islands and going to business trips. The bag fits each of these travels styles fantastically. The suspension system is the most comfortable I have tried and it held perfectly fine running up and down mountain peaks with lots of gear. It's compactness worked great when flying and and commuting. It was light enough to use it as a day pack for picnics at the beach. After two months of beating the bag up, a rinse in the shower brought it back to perfect condition. Fitting it with extra hooks on the loops provided at the shoulders straps and frame allowed me to carry extra things on the outside - I love hanging my suits from these so they don't wrinkle as I walk. A bag with wheels would have not been adequate for hiking. A hiking backpack will not be the right tool for quick and cheap business travel around Eurrope. This one balances perfectly
"An excellent backpack" (Posted on 27/08/2016)
I just took this badboy on a 4 week trip to brazil for hiking, general travelling and seeing the olympics. I did the hike for the first 4 days of the trip and this bag was more than adequate and very comfy - despite the trails we were walking being extremely tough. I was carrying tent, sleeping bag, air bed clothes, a bladder and other supplies all inside the bag - note that was the limit of what could be accomodated.
After that - i did more conventional travelling around brazil using airports, coaches, taxis and other public transport and this bag was great. I ended up getting rid of the tent and sleeping bag so that I could carry other things. never had to check the bag and there are loops for a pad lock.
I'm so happy that I bought this bag for the trip - extremely durable and comfy and will be well used for other trips i take - I so prefer this to my wheely bag.
"everywhere" (Posted on 13/07/2016)
- I use this backpack for two years now and it has been with me on numerous trips all over europe. I love it! My girlfriend got so jealous that i bought her one two and now travelling is pretty easy. We never check in luggage anymore since this pack is simply big enough. I do have the Farpoint 70 for longer travels but I hardly use it... Although the detachable daypack is a great addition, maybe that would be a good idea for the new version of the Farpoint 40, if possible... So if you are looking for a great pack that will help you travel easy... This is the one to pick. Besides getting a little dirty on the trips it still looks like new... very good quality...
"Like an Oversized Daypack" (Posted on 07/07/2016)
- I loved this backpack and used it as my main travel pack for a month's travel to Peru. It's really comfortable to carry around and had no problems whatsoever as a carry on luggage. The small size carried around 38L so it was a bit tight especially to close. Make sure you don't buy any large toiletry bags or packing cubes as it will make life more difficult to stuff everything in. But we managed to put in 2 packing cubes, a toiletry bag and other accessories without too much sweat. My wife wished that there were a few more small pockets to put small stuff like passports and keys but otherwise 5/5.
