Fairview 40

For where wheels won't go. The Fairview 40 is our lightest travel backpack that conforms to maximum EU carry-on dimensions.

Featuring a zip-away spacer mesh ventilated backpanel, the Fairview can be carried like a backpack but packed like a suitcase.

Fairview’s backsystem offers an impressive women's specific fit, with an ergonomically shaped hipbelt, harness, yoke and backpanel. 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 Fairview 40 the ideal travel companion for your next business meeting or weekend get-away.

Excellent carry on bag!
I'm really happy with this purchase. Had no problems taking it on a european flight as carry on luggage. I was surprised at how much I could fit inside for a 5 day trip (two small packing cubes fits really well). It's really comfortable on your back. despite the weight of the bag. Only problem is that when it's really packed you can't securely fit a water bottle inside the mesh pockets at the front (it'll just pop out, I lost my water bottle due to this unfortunately). There are good compartments at the front of the bag which come in handy. Overall, great bag - really satisfied. Look forward to using it for my next trip!
paula
love it!
Now after a 5 day trip I can say I'm quite happy with this purchase, super confortable to walk around a city, the opening like a suite case it is its best feature. totally worths!
Hollash
Perfect, appropriate travel bag.
I took this bag to Croatia bag packing and it was perfect! I was reluctant to buy at first but it is definitely worth investing in. Comfortable, sturdy zips and pockets. The zips are really strong so you don't have to be worried about ripping the material or breaking the zips. Because the bag opens up like a case, it is so much easier to pack rather than rummage from the top. Can't wait to go on my next adventure and use again!
Nina
Wishing new version already!!
This backpack has been very useful for me but I have given it away. The problem is that I am waiting for a new (improved) version because I have the illusion that it will improve in some aspects:
1. Better colors both inside and outside.
2. More organization and modernity in general in the part for laptop.
3. Some small pockets in the belt of the waist (other brands have them because they are very useful)

I would like the Osprey team to respond to me when they will bring out a new version of this backpack, since I am in the expectation to buy it again immediately but improved and with new colors to choose from.
Thanks in advance for your reply.
Greetings.

Best backpack I ever had
After 20 years I went backpacking again with my children through Thailand and the bag was so light to carry around. I am truly impressed how much clothes fit in it...wow! Even a pair of high heels ;-)
Yass
Love it!
I am super happy with my osprey backpack! The only thing I am missing are side pockets.
KateT
Fantastic for Hand Luggage
Taken this on two trips now as hand-luggage. Been fantastic- really comfortable to carry, lots of good features that help with packing. Great quality.
Aoife
Great backpack
Really great hand-luggage sized backpack, I've used mine for several trips now and it is a perfect size for those of us who know how to pack smart! I'll be bringing it on a 6 month trip soon and know it will be good. The straps around the hips and chest are also great for distributing weight. My only two niggling issues are 1) the colours, I wish there was a plain black or dark grey version instead of the odd swampy khaki/grey one. And 2) the front pocket is a little hard to use - everything in there sinks to the bottom of the pocket when the backpack is worn. I'm looking for something to help with this - maybe a shallow A4-sized packing cube that I can fill with stuff and slot into the front pocket. If Osprey made one I'd buy it!
Tosh
Fantastic bag for long and short trips, too little water bottle pockets.
Absolutely love my Farpoint 40 (men's versión of this bag, I bought before they brought out the women's version also). I use it on all my long and short term trips, from 1 week to 6 months for the past 4 years. Fits everything I need including my DSLR camera and all essentials. Fantastic compartments and easy packaway straps for backpack mode.

My only cons are;
1: The water bottle mesh pockets are far too small to actually utilise. The mesh needs to be just a little bit taller to allow for full sized bottles.

2. There's no minimal clip to add on a smaller day pack to the front.

Please Osprey consider these options to add on to the next design as these minor alterations/add ons would make for the most ideal bag, without adding any negligible weights, in my opinion.
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi Tosh,

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

It is great to hear you have been pleased with your pack, and that it is able to fit all the necessary equipment for your travels.

We will ensure your feedback on larger side pockets and the additions of clips to allow this pack to be compatible with a smaller daypack, is passed to our Design Team for consideration.

Perfect for travelling with children
Great, perfect for travelling with children on the plane and on longer trips
Silvia
My new totally favourite backpack
This backpack is awesome! I packed for my 4 months backpacking trip in Southeast Asia and it was a perfect size (I even had some spare space in it when coming home). You can pack a lot in it.

I like that it opens like a suitcase so I never had to unpack my stuff even when staying in one place for a couple of days. I used one packing cube from Osprey (Ultralight Double Sided Cube Large, 10 L) which fits perfectly and takes up about 1/3 of the main compartment space. The backpack is sturdy and zippers are strong.

The only thing I don't like is the color. It can't decide if it is grey or green. It is a backpack and not a new handbag so I don't care that much but still ...
Joana
Great backpack! Super recommended!
I love the backpack, feels really great to wear. Really recommend this one for women. It's big enough for any tip of travel and any duration. Wouldn't shoose a bigger one, that's enough to carry around.
Super practical.
Nadine
Love it
I really love this backpack, even if the hip flaps could be a bit longer, especially when the backpack is used during wintertime wearing a thick jacket. And sometimes it would be grate to be able to carry the heavy notebook nearer to the back. But nevertheless I like to use it for every kind of traveling.

Good for traveling lightweight
I bought this backpack thinking of my periods of travelling for 2 weeks. So far it's been great! Accepted in the cabin and so easy to carry around. I think I just pack it too full, that eventually it hurts my shoulders... : P
Charly
Great versatile carry-on
Just the right amount of pockets and deceptively roomy. Lightweight. Love the hidden straps - comfortable to carry (though sweaty as no room for back to breathe but that is to be expected). My boyfriend has the men’s (which was all he needed for five months backpacking) and I kept stealing it for weekends away so ended up getting my own! Now we are those cringey matchy matchies in the airport, so smug about our great luggage choices. ALSO when you’re at the back of the queue at the airport gate, they never get put in the hold, unlike the little wheelies. A great win all around.
Lena Fjellström
Comfortable
Used this product for the first time during a two week travel , and I just love it! Great that it can be carried on to the plane, no need for check in luggage. Very easy due to the big front opening, and very comfortable to carry.

Guter Rucksack
Angenehmes Trageverhalten, viele Fächer, ob fürs Wochenende oder längere Auslandsreisen, einfach super. Leider für kleine und zierliche Personen immer noch etwas zu groß, ragt weit über die Schulterabmessungen hinaus, bei längeren "Märschen" für keine Personen, wie mich, eher ungeeignet.
Rahel
Ideale per le mie esigenze
Ho acquistato questo zaino nell'autunno 2017 e con esso ho viaggiato in Italia, in Tanzania e in Kenya. Il mio fisico è minuto e per nulla muscoloso eppure questo zaino si è adattato perfettamente al mio corpo ed anche quand'era pieno, non sentivo tanto peso quanto con altri zaini.
Le dimensioni coincidevano con quelle richieste per il bagaglio a mano con la compagnia olandese KLM con la quale ho volato. Passando il check in e viaggiando in generale, ho notato che alcuni ulteriori dettagli avrebbero fatto comodo. Ad esempio agganciando lo zaino sui fianchi, servirebbero tasche a zip sul davanti, così da potervi inserire documenti (passaporto incluso) e magari lo smartphone. Io ho adoperato una cintura impermeabile ed elastica, che però scendeva sui fianchi proprio perché andrebbe posizionata alla stessa altezza della chiusura dello zaino.
Un'altra miglioria sarebbe rendere impermeabile il materiale di cui è interamente composto lo zaino. Non trovo affatto pratico doversi fermare per tirar fuori un copri zaino (comprato a parte e non della Osprey), nel momento in cui si mettesse a piovere. Oltretutto ero in Africa durante la stagione delle piogge, quindi questa caratteristica sarebbe stata più che utile.
Altro piccolo dettaglio è la tasca per il laptop: preferirei una zip, perché la chiusura con il velcro si consuma in fretta e non assicura la stessa tenuta.
Complessivamente posso dire di ritenermi soddisfatta dell'acquisto, sebbene sia la prima volta in cui investa in uno zaino, spendendo una cifra elevata (almeno per quanto mi riguarda).
Lo consiglierei sicuramente.
Sara
Good product
I bought this backpack for any short future travel, but I haven't use it yet. Still, I can say it seems to me solid and resistant, vast and, above all, very comfortable! I chose this bag because it has so many pockets, fundamental to organize everything in the best way. Even if it appears as a sports bag, it is elegant in the details and has a wonderful dark green color! I totally suggest to buy it. I will rectify my opinion, after trying it.

L’ideal pour voyager léger
Taille idéale pour éviter le passage en soute. Ce que je n’aime pas dans les sac à dos de rando classique c’est leur manque de praticité quand ils sont utilisé plus pour du tourisme que de l’a vraie rando.. Le fairview s’ouvre comme une valise. Il est léger, et ne ressemble pas à une valise cabine! Plutôt confortable, je le recommande pour partir une semaine voir plus pour celles qui ne prennent pas toute de garde robe.
Anne
Sac à dos léger et taille parfaite
Très jolie couleur verte, j'adore ce sac, contenance idéale pour voyager léger et sac très fonctionnel et de qualité!
Carrie
Perfect travel companion
I’m amazed how much I can get in this bag. Comfortable to wear and the perfect size to take on and off a train or plane. All the different sections are well thought out and easy to access. Definitely makes you think about what you really need to pack as perfect for keeping the weight down.
DM
Hip belt too short
Lovely backpack, but as a woman, I can't use the women's version as the hip belt is too tight; it will only JUST fasten on me. I'm not overly large, and have never had this problem with a backpack before. I will have to buy the Far Point 40 just so that it fits.

Please Osprey, realise that not all women who want to travel are really slim! A bit of extra webbing would be no problem for slimmer ladies, but the webbing being too short means that this product has to be completely discounted by average / larger ladies.
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi,

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

We're sorry to hear that you're unhappy with the size of the hipbelt for the Fairview 40. This pack has been designed with an adjustable hipbelt to allow it to fit a wide range of different physiques. If you feel that the pack is not fitting you correctly, our Guarantee Team would happily cooperate with you to supply a hipbelt extension strap. Please use our online form to get in touch.

Regards,

Osprey Customer Service

Great for traveling light
I bought this pack specifically for my trip to Vietnam and it was perfect for 15 days spent in 5 locations. I went through Europe with my 70L camping pack and quickly realized the shortcomings. The Fairview solves this be being extremely versatile and yet sturdy and ergonomic. I am 5'2 with a short torso and the backpack was comfortable for moving between hotels, boats, trains, and airports. I also liked having the side strap for short distances. The best feature is the arrangement with the main compartment able to unzip on three sides so you have the convenience of packing like a suitcase. After having to pull out my clothing, maps, electronics, and toiletries from the top of my camping backpack and then repack everything each time, I was delighted with how I could unzip the Fairview and grab what I needed quickly and conveniently. The front compartment is roomy enough to store all of my documents and electronics. I also enjoyed the pockets where I could stow my flip flops. If you are looking for something more accessible than a camping pack but don't want to drag around a suitcase, this is it. 40L fits into most airline carry on limits and can comfortably hold what you would need for a short holiday.
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi Architart,

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

It is great to hear that your Fairview 40 was perfect for your recent trip to Vietnam, and that its suitcase-like design met its purpose in ensuring you could easily find the items you needed, without having to unpack its entire contents.

We hope you will continue to enjoy using the Fairview 40 for any future adventures.

Kind Regards,

Osprey Customer Service

THE NEW OSPREY FAIRVIEW CARRY-ON BAG
Meet the adventurous traveller’s new best mate. The perfectly sized new Osprey Fairview 40 litre rucksack, £100, is roomy enough for all your kit but still small enough to sail through airport security and to work as an excellent hiking backpack.

Where’s your next far-flung adventure? Whether you’re road-tripping through Iceland or hiking in South America, a sturdy, roomy rucksack is a must. Osprey’s new female-specific Fairview joins their ever-popular male Farpoint in their travel series. This Goldilocks-like backpack is just right for weekend adventures, multi-day hikes and adventure travel, as it holds tons of kit and clothing but is also small enough to meet cabin bag restrictions.

THE TRAVEL-FRIENDLY OSPREY FAIRVIEW

My Fairview‘s all packed for my surf trip to Sri Lanka next week but in the meantime I’ve been testing it out on hikes and camping trips. I love the roomy compartments, padded laptop sleeve and padlock-compatible zipped pockets – having a place to safely store everything is a big help on the road. As a hiking rucksac, the Fairview ticks all my boxes – the shoulder straps are well-padded and you can tell the lumbar support has been designed with women’s bodies in mind. Want to convert to a shoulder bag? All the straps zip neatly away and there’s a carry strap – great for busy airports – as well as a top and a side handle. The bag feels light and comfortable when trekking, too – it weighs in at 1.44kg and even stuffed with gear, the well-designed straps spread the load on your back and are easy to adjust to your body. I’ve taken a one-man tent, a small sleeping bag and change of clothes on a wild camping trip in mine with no problem.

I also love the sea-green colour of the Fairview. Osprey buck the trend of choosing girly, saccharine colours for their female range, and the Fairview also comes in a smart grey. If you’re after a bigger pack 55 litre (£130) and 70 litre (£140) versions are available too. Like all the Osprey packs I’ve tested, the quality you get for the price is fantastic – absolutely worth the investment if you want just one bag for all your upcoming adventures.

Never agian
I ordered this Backpack from the German Osprey Website. I'm a petite person however the straps were very uncomfortable for me and hurting me neck.
I had to send the Fairview 40 back and that's when the real trouble started. Even though I checked the Return Conditions on the German Site there was nothing mentioned about having to pay the Return costs. Only now, I found that in the FAQ it says that Osprey is not paying in case of a return. This might not be uncommon however I think a company that sells Backpacks that have to be fitted it clearly shows that this company doesn't care about their customers. Furthermore Osprey is only situated in the Netherlands even though they have other websites they only deliver from the Netherlands. In my case I have to pay more then 15,00€ to return a Backpack that didn't fit. Other companies offer their customers to return an item to one of their resellers however Osprey refuses to accept this.
My anger is big, such a big company should be able to state their Return conditions clearly.
I will never order again from this website!
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi Klara,

We are sorry to hear that your pack did not fit suitably and caused you discomfort. The Fairview 40 is sold in a size WS/WM, this is suitable for a torso length between 38-53cm, we always recommend that customers use our PackSizer App to size themselves prior to purchase. We also have Pack Fitting Instructions to ensure that the pack is fitted properly to you, as this can effect the comfort of the straps. To hear that you found the straps uncomfortable would suggest that the pack needs adjusting as the load should be through your hips and you should feel very little on your shoulders.

While we appreciate that there is a returns cost involved, customers have to agree to our Terms & Conditions at the point of purchase, which explain that the cost to return any purchase made from the website is the responsibility of the customer.

Regards,

Osprey Customer Service

Great bag, let down by a few things
Overall this is a great bag, well built but a large interior pocket . My only issue at the elasticated pocket at the front are a little ridged making it difficult to hold a bottle, should be a little more elastic. Another issue is the placement of the laptop sleeve, your laptop is generally the single heaviest item in your bag. From a mechanics perspective it make more sense to have this closest to the body, shifting the overall centre of gravity; carrying a normal laptop in this bag can be a little uncomfortable.
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi tPB,

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

Usually, it would be more comfortable to have the laptop sleeve situated at the back of the pack and closest to the body and in most of our other packs, this is the case. However, with the Fairview 40, as a result of the suitcase style opening, the majority of people would lie it flat. As a consequence of this, this would mean you are packing all other belongings on top of the laptop. Not only does that mean your electrical items could be damaged by shoes and heavier items, it can be very difficult to easily access again.

In response to your comments about the front elasticated pockets, these are designed to be tight and to hold items in the pockets securely. However, we understand that using them with certain style water bottles could be tricky. I recommend loosening the compression straps at the bottom that may be restricting access. While the Fairview 40 is our best-selling Women's Fit Travel Pack, your feedback will be passed to our Design Team for future consideration.

Regards,

Osprey Customer Service

LOVE the backpack, HATE the color!
I absolutely love this backpack! It's extremely practical and doesn't hurt your back. Just be aware that the color (Misty Grey) is VERY misleading. I've looked at this website from my MacBook, my work PC and my iPhone - and it looks gray on all those devices. However, in real life the backpack is actually GREEN!

Osprey: I beg you to change the color on this backpack! I have absolutely no idea why a design team would match such a terrible green-ish color with turquoise. So please do yourselves a favor and change the color to actual gray..!
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi Celine,

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

It is great to hear that you are happy with the features and comfort of your pack, however, we are sorry that you have been disappointed by the colour.

When viewing a product online, the device used and the calibration setting of each individual screen can be perceived differently. However, we will ensure your feedback is passed 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.

Regards,

Osprey Customer Service

Un'altra miglioria sarebbe rendere impermeabile il materiale di cui è interamente composto lo zaino. Non trovo affatto pratico doversi fermare per tirar fuori un copri zaino (comprato a parte e non della Osprey), nel momento in cui si mettesse a piovere. Oltretutto ero in Africa durante la stagione delle piogge, quindi questa caratteristica sarebbe stata più che utile.
Altro piccolo dettaglio è la tasca per il laptop: preferirei una zip, perché la chiusura con il velcro si consuma in fretta e non assicura la stessa tenuta.
Complessivamente posso dire di ritenermi soddisfatta dell'acquisto, sebbene sia la prima volta in cui investa in uno zaino, spendendo una cifra elevata (almeno per quanto mi riguarda).
Lo consiglierei sicuramente.

Good product
I bought this backpack for any short future travel, but I haven't use it yet. Still, I can say it seems to me solid and resistant, vast and, above all, very comfortable! I chose this bag because it has so many pockets, fundamental to organize everything in the best way. Even if it appears as a sports bag, it is elegant in the details and has a wonderful dark green color! I totally suggest to buy it. I will rectify my opinion, after trying it.

L’ideal pour voyager léger
Taille idéale pour éviter le passage en soute. Ce que je n’aime pas dans les sac à dos de rando classique c’est leur manque de praticité quand ils sont utilisé plus pour du tourisme que de l’a vraie rando.. Le fairview s’ouvre comme une valise. Il est léger, et ne ressemble pas à une valise cabine! Plutôt confortable, je le recommande pour partir une semaine voir plus pour celles qui ne prennent pas toute de garde robe.

Perfect travel companion
I’m amazed how much I can get in this bag. Comfortable to wear and the perfect size to take on and off a train or plane. All the different sections are well thought out and easy to access. Definitely makes you think about what you really need to pack as perfect for keeping the weight down.

Hip belt too short
Lovely backpack, but as a woman, I can't use the women's version as the hip belt is too tight; it will only JUST fasten on me. I'm not overly large, and have never had this problem with a backpack before. I will have to buy the Far Point 40 just so that it fits.

Please Osprey, realise that not all women who want to travel are really slim! A bit of extra webbing would be no problem for slimmer ladies, but the webbing being too short means that this product has to be completely discounted by average / larger ladies.

Great for traveling light
I bought this pack specifically for my trip to Vietnam and it was perfect for 15 days spent in 5 locations. I went through Europe with my 70L camping pack and quickly realized the shortcomings. The Fairview solves this be being extremely versatile and yet sturdy and ergonomic. I am 5'2 with a short torso and the backpack was comfortable for moving between hotels, boats, trains, and airports. I also liked having the side strap for short distances. The best feature is the arrangement with the main compartment able to unzip on three sides so you have the convenience of packing like a suitcase. After having to pull out my clothing, maps, electronics, and toiletries from the top of my camping backpack and then repack everything each time, I was delighted with how I could unzip the Fairview and grab what I needed quickly and conveniently. The front compartment is roomy enough to store all of my documents and electronics. I also enjoyed the pockets where I could stow my flip flops. If you are looking for something more accessible than a camping pack but don't want to drag around a suitcase, this is it. 40L fits into most airline carry on limits and can comfortably hold what you would need for a short holiday.

Hi Architart,

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

It is great to hear that your Fairview 40 was perfect for your recent trip to Vietnam, and that its suitcase-like design met its purpose in ensuring you could easily find the items you needed, without having to unpack its entire contents.

We hope you will continue to enjoy using the Fairview 40 for any future adventures.

Kind Regards,

THE NEW OSPREY FAIRVIEW CARRY-ON BAG
Meet the adventurous traveller’s new best mate. The perfectly sized new Osprey Fairview 40 litre rucksack, £100, is roomy enough for all your kit but still small enough to sail through airport security and to work as an excellent hiking backpack.

Where’s your next far-flung adventure? Whether you’re road-tripping through Iceland or hiking in South America, a sturdy, roomy rucksack is a must. Osprey’s new female-specific Fairview joins their ever-popular male Farpoint in their travel series. This Goldilocks-like backpack is just right for weekend adventures, multi-day hikes and adventure travel, as it holds tons of kit and clothing but is also small enough to meet cabin bag restrictions.

THE TRAVEL-FRIENDLY OSPREY FAIRVIEW

My Fairview‘s all packed for my surf trip to Sri Lanka next week but in the meantime I’ve been testing it out on hikes and camping trips. I love the roomy compartments, padded laptop sleeve and padlock-compatible zipped pockets – having a place to safely store everything is a big help on the road. As a hiking rucksac, the Fairview ticks all my boxes – the shoulder straps are well-padded and you can tell the lumbar support has been designed with women’s bodies in mind. Want to convert to a shoulder bag? All the straps zip neatly away and there’s a carry strap – great for busy airports – as well as a top and a side handle. The bag feels light and comfortable when trekking, too – it weighs in at 1.44kg and even stuffed with gear, the well-designed straps spread the load on your back and are easy to adjust to your body. I’ve taken a one-man tent, a small sleeping bag and change of clothes on a wild camping trip in mine with no problem.

I also love the sea-green colour of the Fairview. Osprey buck the trend of choosing girly, saccharine colours for their female range, and the Fairview also comes in a smart grey. If you’re after a bigger pack 55 litre (£130) and 70 litre (£140) versions are available too. Like all the Osprey packs I’ve tested, the quality you get for the price is fantastic – absolutely worth the investment if you want just one bag for all your upcoming adventures.

Never agian
I ordered this Backpack from the German Osprey Website. I'm a petite person however the straps were very uncomfortable for me and hurting me neck.
I had to send the Fairview 40 back and that's when the real trouble started. Even though I checked the Return Conditions on the German Site there was nothing mentioned about having to pay the Return costs. Only now, I found that in the FAQ it says that Osprey is not paying in case of a return. This might not be uncommon however I think a company that sells Backpacks that have to be fitted it clearly shows that this company doesn't care about their customers. Furthermore Osprey is only situated in the Netherlands even though they have other websites they only deliver from the Netherlands. In my case I have to pay more then 15,00€ to return a Backpack that didn't fit. Other companies offer their customers to return an item to one of their resellers however Osprey refuses to accept this.
My anger is big, such a big company should be able to state their Return conditions clearly.
I will never order again from this website!
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi Klara,

We are sorry to hear that your pack did not fit suitably and caused you discomfort. The Fairview 40 is sold in a size WS/WM, this is suitable for a torso length between 38-53cm, we always recommend that customers use our PackSizer App to size themselves prior to purchase. We also have Pack Fitting Instructions to ensure that the pack is fitted properly to you, as this can effect the comfort of the straps. To hear that you found the straps uncomfortable would suggest that the pack needs adjusting as the load should be through your hips and you should feel very little on your shoulders.

While we appreciate that there is a returns cost involved, customers have to agree to our Terms & Conditions at the point of purchase, which explain that the cost to return any purchase made from the website is the responsibility of the customer.

Regards,

Osprey Customer Service

Great bag, let down by a few things
Overall this is a great bag, well built but a large interior pocket . My only issue at the elasticated pocket at the front are a little ridged making it difficult to hold a bottle, should be a little more elastic. Another issue is the placement of the laptop sleeve, your laptop is generally the single heaviest item in your bag. From a mechanics perspective it make more sense to have this closest to the body, shifting the overall centre of gravity; carrying a normal laptop in this bag can be a little uncomfortable.
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi tPB,

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

Usually, it would be more comfortable to have the laptop sleeve situated at the back of the pack and closest to the body and in most of our other packs, this is the case. However, with the Fairview 40, as a result of the suitcase style opening, the majority of people would lie it flat. As a consequence of this, this would mean you are packing all other belongings on top of the laptop. Not only does that mean your electrical items could be damaged by shoes and heavier items, it can be very difficult to easily access again.

In response to your comments about the front elasticated pockets, these are designed to be tight and to hold items in the pockets securely. However, we understand that using them with certain style water bottles could be tricky. I recommend loosening the compression straps at the bottom that may be restricting access. While the Fairview 40 is our best-selling Women's Fit Travel Pack, your feedback will be passed to our Design Team for future consideration.

Regards,

Osprey Customer Service

LOVE the backpack, HATE the color!
I absolutely love this backpack! It's extremely practical and doesn't hurt your back. Just be aware that the color (Misty Grey) is VERY misleading. I've looked at this website from my MacBook, my work PC and my iPhone - and it looks gray on all those devices. However, in real life the backpack is actually GREEN!

Osprey: I beg you to change the color on this backpack! I have absolutely no idea why a design team would match such a terrible green-ish color with turquoise. So please do yourselves a favor and change the color to actual gray..!
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi Celine,

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

It is great to hear that you are happy with the features and comfort of your pack, however, we are sorry that you have been disappointed by the colour.

When viewing a product online, the device used and the calibration setting of each individual screen can be perceived differently. However, we will ensure your feedback is passed 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.

Regards,

Osprey Customer Service
