Osprey produces rock-solid, well-engineered, and very sleek-looking travel bags. 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.
Ospreys were a favorite among early digital nomad types who traveled and worked from around the world. The company offers a lifetime warranty and a great guarantee, so their bags should last a long time.
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 valuable 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 make the bag's profile smaller. With a slight tug on the compression straps, the bag shrinks and becomes easier to manage. The external compression straps also help keep the Farpoint 40 secure. The straps wings attached 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 helpful, so they don't whip the face of a fellow train passenger or get caught in the security straps.
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. All the seams and stitching is intact and the colors haven't faded at all.
The Farpoint 40 comes in an S/M and M/L size, which greatly changes the capacity and dimensions. For most people, the S/M will be easy to handle, but for people on the tall side, the M/L will be more comfortable. The large size does have more capacity, but as you pack more, the weight increases.
40L fully packed carry-on bags are too heavy for me to manage efficiently. If you plan to walk around a lot with the bag on your shoulders, the larger size may not be for you. The built-in hipbelt and harnesses do help make the bag more comfortable, though.
"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."
"As always with Osprey products, the overall quality of the Farpoint is excellent. You can tell a lot of thought went into designing and manufacturing these bags. The materials are all top notch."
"After receiving the Osprey Farpoint 40 from the mail, I immediately packed it and took it for a test run around the UK. I have also since packed up everything I own (again) and took this bag with me to Bali, Indonesia with the aim to travel indefinitely."
"After using it for over a year and really putting it through its paces I can say it’s worth spending the money. It’s easy to see why our readers voted the Osprey Farpoint 40 the number one backpack for travel."
"This backpack is perfect for anybody who is just sort of dipping their toes into more long-term trap this is for two reasons reason number one is that it's 40 liters and this will challenge and it will force you to leave some things behind"
