As versatile as a pack should be.

The Osprey Women’s Waypoint 85 Backpack has “traveling through Europe” written all over it. This thing takes on anything from airports to hostels to trails with ease. In addition to the massive 5100 cubic inches of cargo space, this pack includes a removable daypack to let you move freely when you’re not bringing the kitchen sink. External gear attachments let you push this Osprey pack into use for hiking or even mountaineering as well, so it won’t be gathering dust after you get back from your month abroad.

Followup After 1 Yr - Courageously Free

So, it's been nearly a year since we've been traveling and here is our review:

Mike is going to need to replace his with a smaller pack. He got a medium size but when he tried mine on (small) it fit his back better.

All in all, so far it's a great pack, but I talk about the pitfalls in the video as well.

Not an 85L backpack

It is not indicated on any of the product specifications what the volume of the actual backpack is, which I find surprising. This is a key piece of information. However, one of the questions asked below was how large is the actual backpack versus the day pack, and the answer was that the daypack does not count towards the 85L. I ordered the pack based on this answer because I wanted a large travel pack for several weeks overseas. When the pack arrived, I knew immediately it was not 85L. It appeared to be a little less than 70L. I based this on the fact that a medium suitcase is 70L and the the inside of this pack was a little smaller than a medium suitcase. Furthermore, I subsequently ordered the 70+10 Deuter pack which clearly states their pack is 70L, and this Osprey pack was undeniably smaller inside. I am guessing it was 65L. Which means the daypack is around 15L. As a result, I returned it. Otherwise the pack is very well made, like all Osprey products I have used.

How tall is this pack?

I'm struggling to size this pack as I don't have access to the "app". I'm 5'5" with a torso length 18.5-19"...can anyone help??

Hey Charlotte Nansen,

I will be posting a snap of what Osprey has on their site for the Womens Waypoint pack as far as torso size and its correlation to what size pack you should get. Small is 16-19 inches and Medium is 18-21 inches. I would suggest getting the medium so you are right in the middle of that torso length range.

My Osprey Waypoint 85 L review

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This one is for the world travellers looking for the perfect pack to bring with them.

We were waiting for our bus to San Francisco and decided to do an impromptu review on our packs:

Osprey Waypoint 85 Liter Men and Women versions.

The only thing I forgot to talk about was the comfortable handles on the side and top.

Mike's rating: 4.5 / 5

Enjoy the video to hear what we have to say about our packs for our walk the Earth trip.

Great review!
We'd love to see a follow up once you've put the packs to the test in the coming months!

Best of luck and safe travel in your year of wandering : )

Out of the 85L how much of that is the actual pack and how much is the removable daypack?

Responded on

Actually, the daypack doesn't count toward the 85L. The way pack volume is calculated doesn't include the lid or any side pockets, including that one.

My daughter is 5'4'' with a medium build... which size do you recommend for her travel through spain/ Morroco? why aren't they all water resistant?

Responded on

To size your daughter, you need to measure her torso:

Scroll down below the instructions to find sizing info for the Waypoint.

As for water resistant question--what are you referring to? The external fabric on this pack is indeed resistant...

Does this pack have a hip belt? And what are the access points IE does it pack like a duffel bag or like traditional backpack??

Responded on

It does have a hip belt and it has a burrito style opening closer to a traditional backpack than a duffel (zipper goes all the way around).

Best Answer Responded on

Yes, the Waypoint has a great hipbelt and a really nice suspension, modeled after Osprey's best selling Aether backpack. It is a panel loading, which makes it easy to get into your bag and organize / retrieve your stuff!

Have fun!

Will this be too heavy for me to carry? I am 5'6'' and weigh about 130.

Responded on

hard to say, but i'd guess it would depend on what you put into it. usually though, osprey is very comfortable no matter what weight is inside. i'd say you'd be fine if you're fairly active and used to carrying a good amount of weight. this is definitely a ton of space.
