Osprey Farpoint 70
tough, practical, well-designed & comfortable
Looking forward to a 4 week trip Stateside with this bag. The designers appear to have thought of everything, from practical day sack to a zipaway back strap feature to prevent damage in aircraft holds & internal tidy straps. It's also a comfortable bag to wear & the smaller back size is great for women without having to compromise on colour as you would do if choosing a 'female specific' backpack...(who wants to carry a bright pink rucksack?!)
I'm delighted with this bag & judging by my current Osprey day sack this is going to last for years. Can't believe how small this looks compared to my ancient 55 litre Berghaus...It's getting to the stage I'm considering inventing trips to make an excuse to use this!

Exceeds all expectations
Product is well suited to short and long term travel. The 'all around' zip makes it easy to access items anywhere in the bag. I also like the double security for the day sack of having both the zip on and hidden clip features.
The internal compression straps make it easy to stop items shifting and to pack more in a smaller space.
Only downside is there is no waterproof cover included but it's by no means a dealbreaker!

Best traveler's purchase. Unquestionable quality and performance
I recently purchased the Farpoint 70L for my year long travels and I have not had a single complaint about the bag.
Firstly the Lifetime warranty is one fantastic feature about the purchase and demonstrates Osprey's confidence in the quality of their products which is undoubtedly great. I have put my backpack through its paces from trekking through Sri Lanka, riding trains through India and currently on my way through the Himalayas and it has yet the fail me in any aspect.
The additional detachable 15L backpack has been the most useful item on my trip so far. I use it daily when I am at a hostel for carrying items such as a laptop, 2 water bottles, towels, lotions, and hats and all the other "lovely" things my wife accumulates (I only require the water bottle).
Undoubtedly my best purchase and completely satisfied with quality and value. The service and advise from Snow and Rock was spot on !!

Great quality, good value
Spent two months interrailing with this beauty and don't regret it for a second.
Very good if you're looking for more of a duffel bag sort of a pack, as you can't really access the main compartment if the daypack is zipped on. It opens um completely, just like a duffel, so it's very easy to organize. Doesn't have any nifty pockets if you want to quickly store you jacket or something like that, but I'd say it has more pros than cons.
As long as you're not trekking for most of the day I absolutley recommend it!

Excellent and well thought out
This bag/backpack is really well though out. It has a pretty good capacity, can be carried as a backpack, and there is a detachable front bag, which makes it easy to go on a day adventure!
