Review

You can't go wrong with Osprey bags. So many one baggers, digital nomads, minimalists use them that the majority of the packing lists on this website use Osprey bags.

Durable, sleek, and well designed, the Osprey 70 will handle whatever you take it. At 70L of capacity, there is more, probably way more room, than you'll ever need and then some.

25-40L bags can usually fit 3-5 days worth of clothing, but a 70L is bag is almost double that size. I think the Osprey would be magnificent for trips when you aren't going to be moving around with your luggage a lot. A fully packed Farpoint must weigh a ton.

The Osprey Farpoint looks like a typical top-loading backpack but fully unzips and lies flat so you easily pack and unpack. Top loading backpacks can be a nightmare when you are trying to optimize space. Since the bottom of the bag becomes invisible right away, its hard to see if everything is efficiently packed.

The Osprey also comes with a detachable daypack which is very convenient. I have another Osprey bag with a detachable daypack, and I will say I was impressed by the construction quality. Frequently daypacks are cheap and flimsy. Osprey daypacks are constructed with the same quality construction as the main bag. I use the detachable daypack as a primary backpack. After over five years and a couple of trips to Europe mine is still in almost perfect condition.

The final feature I'll talk about is that Osprey has strap management down to a science. I have a Tortuga Outbreaker, and if I have that bag off my back and pick it up, a dozen straps start flying around like Octopus tentacles. In contrast, Osprey bags have nifty pouches for unused straps so you can conveniently store them, and prevent them from flailing around when you don't need them.
