If you are looking for the storage size of traditional luggage and the convenience of being able to carry that load on your back when needed, then the Osprey Farpoint is the right bag for you.

Overall the packs are super comfortable, lightweight and hi-tech with enough bells and whistles (there is literally one on the sternum strap buckle) to do everything you want without going overboard into some complex chaos of buckles, loops, straps, pockets and zips that some packs fall into.

We can attest to its reliability. It’s become a bag we can trust, even after a year of heavy use. It’s highly reviewed on the web because simply put, it’s a great bag, one you can travel the world with.

It is the perfect size for a one- or two-night trip. The pack is tough and durable and the front-loading feature and various storage compartments make packing and unpacking a breeze. The detachable day pack is super handy for day hikes from camp.

If you look at how it’s made, you won’t help but notice how the Osprey 40 gives you the freedom and the comfort of a hiking backpack, with the added benefit of easy packing, suitcase style.

I love how the Farpoint 55 distributes the packing weight along your back. With the chest and waist straps properly closed, I often hardly notice it’s there.

Overall I was really impressed with the Farpoint 55. Which is a big thing for a traditional toploader kind of girl.

Seriously I can’t think of anything else. I have been on the road for 5 months, unpacking and repacking constantly, and the Farpoint is the best pack I’ve ever experienced for this type of travel.

It’s loaded with features and you won’t find a backpack that holds a load closer to your body. I put this bag through the ringer on our last trip and it passed with flying colours.
