Farpoint 40

Built for where wheels won't go, the Farpoint 40 is our lightest travel backpack that fits within EU carry-on dimensions. Featuring a zip-away spacer mesh ventilated backpanel, the Farpoint can be carried like a backpack but packed like a suitcase. The strong and durable backsystem means you can carry your gear comfortably when travelling between hotels, the airport or beyond. Cushioned carry handles on the top and the sides and the removable shoulder strap allows you to easily grab the travel pack off airport baggage carousels and carry quickly with ease. Your gear is readily to hand, with the inclusion of a large zippered opening that allows access to the main compartment, featuring lockable zips for increased security. The inner compression straps allow you to fully maximise the capacity whilst securing your belongings. Look a little closer and you'll also find a top stash pocket for electronics and sunglasses, dual mesh front pockets for water bottles and a padded internal laptop sleeve. All of these features combined make the Farpoint 40 the ideal travel companion for your next business meeting or weekend get-away.

Beware! Colour is not correct!
I like the backpack, but it's nothing like on the pictures. The name of the colour "Volcanic Grey" is also misleading. The backpack is totally GREEN. I had the same problem with the "Shadow Grey " Ultralight Stuff Pack, which is also GREEN. It's not slightly different on the pictures and you don't need to have a keen eye for colour difference to see it. They are black on the pictures, but you'll get totally GREEN bags. I'm disappointed. All l I have is black and I'll have to change these backpacks because of this... Don't fall in the same trap if colours are important for you!

Hi Attila,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Farpoint 40.

We have passed the feedback over to our Digital Team who will be looking to review the shades of the current images. If changes are made we hope that this will help customers make a more accurate decision when selecting the colour of their pack.

Am looking to change it
I've used this bag for a number of trips as a single carry on, including a four week trip to Thailand/ Portugal/ UK. While it has never let me down and looks as good as new (I take care of my things and it has always been with me and not in any airplane hold) I find it's impracticality such that I'm looking to change the bag. My main concerns are it's lack of practicality on the following points. Actual packing is a little frustrating due to the way the bag doesn't open fully. It's soft sides slightly hinder packing while heavily curved corners limit regular packing eg using packing cubes. The support and padding for the laptop/ tablet (I've travelled with both or just a tablet) gives me limited confidence in it's ability to protect my electronics, especially using the external compression which appears to put pressure right on that area of the bag. Some kind of semi rigid protection would be wise. That pocket also is poorly planned in relation to the soft upper of the bag- if you put anything deep inside and fill the main bag it's very hard to access anything that falls to the bottom. Two half sized pockets would be much more useful. Once closed with the external compression straps opening the bag is actually difficult to open/ access. Good against pickpockets, bad for airport security. Further, using the external straps completely negates the external mesh pockets for something useful like a water bottle. The upper, small storage is useful, unless you've over stuffed the bag. It's not a bad carry on, it's just not as good as my experience has led me to need. Is the right carry on bag made yet? I'm looking.

Great bag
I've been using this bag for a 10 day travel now and it has been great.

I have some feedback that I think would make this and other bags even greater:
1: The zippers could interlaced to make a kind of locking mechanism for when you are wearing the pack.
2: A powerbank pocket on the inside with a USB connection point on the outside and maybe a small fold where you can stuff your cable when not in use.

Anyways. This bag has served me well on my interrail. I can really recommend

Perfect travel bag
Recently I used this bag for travelling in Portugal. No problem with airlines, I took the bag with me on the plane. For one week in Portugal, I could not complain about this bag.
Pack all my things, clothes, etc. Just perfect :) I definitely recommend this bag for nomads, travel guys.

The best travel bag
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
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!

Excellent all-rounder.
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
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.

thanks Osprey

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
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.
