Our Thoughts

Osprey produces rock-solid, well-engineered, and very sleek looking travel bags. To me, Osprey is a gold standard luggage company and each other travel backpacks are first in class. Every bag they create is highly rated, unique, and extremely functional.

Osprey Standard

Osprey bags set the standard that all other bags should meet. All of Osprey's carry-ons are built with quality and designed with tons of useful features.

Unique Features

The unique aspects of the Osprey Farpoint 40 that I enjoy are the external compression straps and the ability to hide the shoulder straps.

The compression straps on the Farpoint 40 are great because they keep the profile of the bag smaller. With a slight tug on the compression straps, the bag shrinks a little bit and becomes easier to manage. The external compression straps also help keep the Farpoint 40 secure. The wings of the straps where they attach to the bag will cover the zippers and make it harder for people to access the inner compartments.

The other unique feature I love is the ability to fold the shoulder straps into a compartment and completely hide them. Too many bags are like squirming octopuses with straps all over the place. Hiding straps are super useful, so they don't whip the face of a fellow train passenger or get caught in the security straps.

Durability

Luggage always lasts a couple of trips before the wear and tear become visible, but the Osprey carry-on I used handled the beating well and still looks new.

The Farpoint 40 comes in an S/M and M/L size, which changes the capacity and dimensions a bit. For most people, the S/M will be easy to handle, but for people that are on the tall side, the M/L will be more comfortable.

๐Ÿ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • Superior comfort when fully loaded on your back from expert engineering.
  • The mesh pockets on the pack hold water bottles, and other accessories, extremely well.
  • All the harness, straps, and hip belt can be tucked and zipped. This feature is truly convenient when you plan to put this bag under your airplane seat.
  • The clamshell opening makes packing and unpacking hassle-free.

๐Ÿค” Things to Consider

  • The front compartment can be hard to use when the main compartment is packed.
  • The laptop sleeve location is not optimal and bit awkward.
  • The mesh compartments can be hard to reach while carrying the bag on your back.

Osprey Farpoint 40 Review
packhacker.com

"we’ve been using the Osprey Farpoint for just over a year. It’s been through the mountains of Eastern Nepal, on the back of electric scooters in Northern Myanmar and on the beaches of Southern Cambodia — and we’ve trusted it the entire time. At no point have we ever had any problems with the bag, or wished we’d had anything else. Now if that’s not a good travel backpack we don’t know what is."
