Osprey Fairview vs Osprey Farpoint

Both the Osprey Fairview and the Osprey Farpoint prove to offer superior comfort during usage. These are ideal bags for traveling and commuting.

The Osprey Fairview delivers great ventilation because of the implementation of the back panel made of mesh. This bag distributes the weight of the cargo equally to ensure good balance.

The Osprey Farpoint is constructed amazingly well. It will accommodate all the stuff you need for your expedition. The quality of this bag is highly evident, as it has a terrific suspension system.

The Osprey Fairview is still everything we like about the Farpoint—great for one bag travel, neat hideaway strap system and available worldwide—just designed with women in mind. They knew they had the right formula, so with a few small adjustments in the hip belt and shoulder straps they’ve created a bag that’s a great, comfortable carry for women.
