Perfect for travelling. Shame it's a bit tall for flights.
This backpack is fantastic for travelling! It's very handy having a large backpack for clothes etc., and a smaller, attachable, day pack for walking around in a city. Adjustable and very comfortable.
The only minus is that the larger unit is a bit too tall for most, if not all, airline hand luggage restriction. You could probably tighten it up with the attached cords and sneak it aboard some non-budget airlines if it's not packed to the brim (I have!), but you'll risk sour looks from staff, and maybe even a fine. These IS the Farpoint 40 for those who want a hand luggage compatible back pack, but then you won't get the detachable day pack. If the Farpoint 55 if ever remade, I would like a Farpoint variant with the hand luggage compatibiliy of the FarPoint 40, AND the day pack from the Farpoint 55.
Best backpack on the market, BUT...
Absolutely amazing backpack, comfortable, perfectly sized, easily accessible, secure.
However, it is a real shame that you can't buy a replacement day pack because inevitably this is going to be the piece that will see the most use.
I can't fault either part or the quality and build but this would be the only negative aspect.
Köpte nyligen inför backpackresa i sydamerika. Kunde inte varit mer nöjd. Supersmidigt att man har två väskor i en och att man kan välja att böra den lilla väskan fram eller bak för extra stabilitet! Rekommenderar verkligen att köpa till packing cubes, gör det hela såååå mycket smidigare.
Great pack pack with easy access especially when used with packing cubes for organising your kit.
This is an exceptionally well designed back pack. The small day pack fits well onto the main pack, and is also big enough for carrying essentials during the day. The way the day pack clips onto the front harness is good both for balancing weight and keeping your valuables in front of you when walking. The only slight criticism is that the webbing for caring bottles on the outside of the pack is too small/tight for large bottles. This is an improvement that could be easily made to the design. The way the straps pack away into the back is great for easy carrying on transport and also for flights
Thinking of buying this product
The airlines i typically use often require a height below 55cm, when the main backpack isn't packed fully can it be compressed to fit the go/no go bag cages some airlines use to check size or does the internal frame prevent this
One week on the road and much less adventure than getting UPS to do the delivery (and lose the totebag).
Qatar Air accepted the main part as hand luggage no problem.
It's great... Just one flaw
Bought to reduce my pack size whilst heading round parts of Asia. The pack put together is comfortable to wear, the front loading is easy to access, the ability to hide the straps was great for loading onto the plane / busses / trains et.c The day pack is easy to remove from the main and has a good size, could do with more pockets inside though.
The problem I encountered was the material the day pack was made of in contact with your back has ruined every t shirt I had with me as it rubbed the material so much. It's tough and durable but it's also fairly rough.
Would still recommend the purchase though.
Es una mochila muy funcional, cómoda, ligera. Estoy encantada con esta compra y con la marca.
I purchased this backpack for use on my adventure this summer. I'm an American and i was going to spend two weeks walking around Spain and I wanted a bag that could handle as much as I could. The Farpoint 55 was up to the task. I carried it with me through the streets of Madrid, Barcelona, and Pamplona. The day pack is the perfect size for a laptop and makes for a great carry on bag. My favorite part though is the fact that it unzips all the way down. I lay the bag down flat and load it like a suitcase. It makes for easier packing and easier access to the items stored in the mesh pouch. All in all it's a good bag, I have no complaints. Thank you Osprey.
Exactly as advertised,great backpack!
Love that, as a vertically challenged girl, there is a choice of sizes. For once I have a rucksack that fits my back perfectly. The size is fantastic. Yes, it's too big to take on board the plane but it's ideal for a few days hiking about. The small bag on front is secure....I have had to bin 2 others in the past due to broken zips where the small bag has been ripped away.
Padded side handles are a bonus when the back straps are tidily zipped away.
Delivery and ordering took no time. I'm generally very impressed.
Not been used a great deal so not sure of longevity. (This review was left for a previous version of this product)
