War is heaven.
It could be a city getaway or a campsite, but the Osprey Farpoint 40 Pack is bound to be an essential for any weekend warrior. It has a stowable suspension system that you can deploy if you want to wear the Farpoint like a backpack or carry it around as luggage. Osprey made the shoulder straps and back panel out of spacer mesh for cush and ventilation, and there's a webbing waist belt for added support. StraightJacket compression straps secure the luggage inside.
- Backpack built for weekends in the city or campsite

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This pack is great. I couldn't believe how much one could fit in this pack. Its great for hikes and travel. Easy to figure out and looks great. Not to heavy at all.
Perfect for Traveling!
This pack was the best purchase I've made for traveling. I used it as my carry-on and it fit into even the tiniest of overhead bins on commuter planes. I love that I'm able to stow away the straps, which made it a breeze to quickly slide into an overhead bin, or if I ended up needing to check it. The shoulder strap made for easy transport if I had my back straps stowed. The hidden zippers also made me feel confident that my belongings were safe from prying hands.
Traveled around the world with this bag
Holds up! Worked every time as an international and domestic carry on. For some budget airlines I could not have the bag completely full and converted it to a duffle to make it seem smaller.
Good Carry On
Nice backpack. Zipper runs along side which makes packing and finding your clothes a lot easier. Multiple compartments. Straps can be adjusted for comfortable wear. Small enough for plane carry on big enough to be the only bag you need.
Best Travel Pack for a New "Minimalist"
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I LOVE this pack. I researched luggage and packs ad nauseum prior to a week+ trip to the UK in Feb which included several plane trips, trains, buses, lots of walking, etc. I've never been a super minimalist traveler but I wanted to give NOT over-packing a shot. I will never go back to checking a stuffed bag and having to haul it all over creation! I used travel cubes and was able to fit a pair of hiking shoes (wore boots), 6 pairs of socks and undies, 4 bras, a pair of cords (wore another pair), three pairs of tights, a dress, two sweaters, two baselayers, two running shirts, two vests, rain jacket, rain fly for pack, 2 buffs, scarf, hat, and toiletries. I also carried a Patagonia travel courier bag (which packs into itself) for a daypack. I had room for a few purchases, including a tweed jacket, a t-shirt, and a stuffed animal. Using the compression straps, I still had a bit more room. I took a travel clothesline and a couple packets of Woolite for laundry, which wasn't really necessary but nice to have a few clean clothes. The bag was a cinch to pack and carry. I left the shoulder strap behind, because the padded handles are comfortable enough for quick carries (actually ran through the airport this way!), and used the super-comfortable backpack straps the majority of the time. My friend with a rolling suitcase was very jealous that I was able to skip up and down the hills of Edinburgh with my pack on no problem! It also fit easily into the overhead bin on the airplane- no waiting for (or potentially losing) luggage!
If you are considering becoming a semi-minimalist traveler, you CAN do it with this awesome pack! Take it from a new convert- I hope to never use a suitcase again!
Hi. Do you have the 2017 model? If yes, what is/are the difference/s from the previous model? Thanks.
