Does this bag fit in the over head bin on airplanes?
Should this pack be used for a checked bag or is the material to flimsy? I dont want the pack to come back damaged
The material of this pack is pretty rugged, I wouldn't worry about it more than any other suitcase/bag.
Write your question here...I have a karve 11 I was wondering where you attach the magnet on the pack from the drink hose
I was wondering why you're asking this question on the Farpoint 55 page? Backcountry.com gliche maybe...?
And the magnet get put on the sternum strap. However with the Karve 11, the bite valve gets zipped into the shoulder strap so chances are you might not want to use that function when using the reservoir with your Karve.
Write your question here...I am wondering if the zippers join together for locking purposes?
Thanks for the question. I did some checking on the Osprey Packs Farpoint 70 Pack - 4089-4272cu in and with the assumption that you are referring to locking the soft daypack to the rest of the apparatus, it indeed does have a zipper to lock them together.
Hi, just wondering, does the 70 litres refer to the main pack or the combination of main/daypack? Also is this the same for the Farpoint 55 too? I'd consider buying the Farpoint 55 I think 55 litres would be fine for my travelling needs!!
Main backpack volume is 3356 cu in / 55 liters and the Farpoint Day is 900 cu in / 15 Liters...Look like you looking at a 55L now (:
WIll be traveling through Brazil for three weeks. Rio, Florianopolis, and then some time in the Amazon. Looking for a pack that can tackle the both phases. Doesn't necessarily need to be ready for an ice-climbing expedition, but I'm not looking for a roller bag either. If I had to lean to one side, I would want a pack I could use for backpacking, camping, etc... Whaddya think?
my buddy has this pack. i carried it for a while to check it out. it carries more like a suitcase with straps than an actual pack. i would look to the osprey atmos 65, i think it would suit your backpacking/camping needs better.
@out4fun and @Eli thanks so much, that and a review saying the material is 2flimsymakes my mind up that this isn't the bag for me. So i'm looking for a backpack for travelling n wanted an osprey or climbing backpack for comfort. I like the way this opens up all the way around- the only other i can find like this is the waypoint but the pack attached to this one is too small for my laptop-this defeats the point of a day pack for me. So without a day pack is fine- preferably zipped all the way round and durable... any ideas?
I would first check out the Osprey Ariel 65 for women.
It will hold the same amount of gear as the Fairpoint, it has a top pocket that converts to a fanny pack, the AddOn compatibility (attach a Daylite or Solo daypack using the built-in cord loops) as well as the J-panel access which is similar to what you were looking for in having a zipper all the way around.
Another option that has everything you are looking for is The North Face Backtrack 50 and 80. I've only found a couple reviews on the 80, which are promising, but I haven't found anything on comfort.
Anyone else know much about the TNF Backtrack 80?
Hey Natalie. Yes, look at the Osprey Ariel 65. You will love it. Like Eli says above, you can add a detatchable daypack called the Daylite. The other awesome thing about Osprey is the Warranty: All Mighty Guarantee. NO MATTER WHAT. They take care of you. It's not a "limited lifetime" or "manufacturers defrcts" warranty. It's anything: You're fault, Osprey's fault, the bear's fault... :-) Osprey has you covered! here's a recent pic of me with the Ariel 65 - Stairway to Heaven!
Does this backpack have water bottle pockets on the main big bag at the side?
Natalie, there are side sleeves on the detachable daypack, but not on the main bag itself. These side sleeves may be able to fit a 12-16oz bottle, but it's hard to say without knowing how elastic they are.
Natalie, The stretch pockets on the detachable pack will fit a Klean Kanteen / Sigg 27oz bottle. There is no bottle pocket on the main bag.
Can this pack be used as a carry item on an airplane?
No. To fit in the overhead luggage compartments you'll need to find something approx 2500 cu. or less.
Mike, my answer is maybe. If you remove the daypack, the remaining size of the bigger pack is 26"x10"x12" which adds up to 48" (and it is the same for S/M or M/L sizing). IF you didn't pack it out all of the way, then you would get smaller dimensions that would work with the 45" rule (all the dimensions added up should be 45" or less). The daypack would be the pack you put under the seat in front of you.
However, not all airlines use the 45" rule. Certain airlines adhere to some variation of 24"x17"x10" and if you are travelling on one of those airlines, they may not allow the bigger pack to work since there is a 26" hard frame (for carrying weight better) that prevents you from smushing it down to 24".
And some of the variations are super tiny, like Delta has a rule of 22"x 14"x8". And international is a whole nother beast for measurements. So check into what you'll be flying and where and that would dictate your pack requirement.
The Farpoint 55 is on a 24" frame. If you could make a smaller pack work, this would be a great pack for carry on.
I hope this answered more questions than it created.
