Product Description

84513602940
Osprey's Farpoint 40 is perfect for a weekend getaway in the city or the wilderness. The LightWire™ frame suspension transfers the load from harness to hipbelt. A mesh backpanel improves ventilation and the mesh on the harness and hipbelt reduces chafing under load. The entire suspension stows away under a zippered panel creating a sleek silhouette for transport.

Unzip the lockable sliders to access the main compartment. Inside there's a mesh pocket for small items. Dual compression straps keep cargo from shifting during transit.

Outside you'll find a zippered front panel slash pocket to keep you organized and sewn attachment points to lash on extra gear. No matter how much you choose to carry StraightJacket™ compression straps stabilize the load. The padded top and side handles give you purchase when you need to toss the Farpoint 40 into the back of the bus.

STOWAWAY HARNESS AND HIPBELT
A fixed unisex backpanel hipbelt and harness system can easily be stowed and zipped away creating a better slimmer profile making a better bag for checking or throwing on a bus train or ship.

LIGHTWIRE™ FRAME SUSPENSION
3.5mm lightWire™ peripheral frame effectively transfers the load from harness to hip belt
Atilon framesheet spreads load across the entire backpanel to the peripheral frame

STOWAWAY REVERSE SPACER MESH BACKPANEL HARNESS AND HIPBELT
Smooth mesh covered atilon foam provides a comfortable breathable contact surface with a load supporting core
Adjustable sternum strap with rescue whistle

Hands Down Best Backpack Best Company Ever
I've had this backpack for 3 years now. I've been all over Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, North America, South America, and the Caribbean. Hands down the best backpack ever! I bought the S/M version so I think it's only 38L which is still plenty of room. I've thrown this backpack on buses, trains, in the trunk of cars, everywhere. It's tough as nails.

One of the best things I like about this backpack is the eyelets on the zippers. These are perfect for a lock which I use all the time. It's a great deterrent when staying in hostels also, although I've never had a problem.

Recently, I was forced to check my backpack as luggage on a flight with Spirit Airlines (first time I've ever checked my backpack as luggage). Unfortunately, someone maliciously cut off my lock and destroyed the zipper eyelets. Osprey, with no questions, sent me a new set of zipper eyelets at no charge and they paid for shipping!

I'd highly recommend the Farpoint 40. But if you choose something else, make sure you purchase from Osprey. You won't be disappointed!

Excellent pack for both short and long trips
I really, really like this pack. I've had mine for 1.5 years and have probably spent about 40 nights traveling during that time by plane, train, taxi, and foot. The bag has held up great overtime with very minimal signs of wear.
I can fit about 4-5 days worth cold-weather clothes in packing cubes this bag, along with an extra pair of shoes and all other toiletries, snacks, and whatnot. On trips longer than that, I just do laundry.
If I could make one change, it would be better inner organization pockets. My packing cubes help, but the front pocket becomes a major black hole.
I do recommend trying this bag on. I'm a medium frame 5'5 woman, and the s/m Farpoint fits me much better than the women's specific version. The same pack fits my 5'11 husband.

Hiking Backpack Technology for Travel Luggage
The Farpoint 40 is my first backpack travel luggage. I chose it for the combination of proper backpack features and satisfactory interior space. I used it on a 7-day vacation in Japan (a place with stunning fall season color, BTW). My loaded 20-lb. pack was balanced and comfortable on my 5'11" body. There are features of a quality hiking backpack: a stable but lightweight frame, contoured shoulder harnesses featuring load lifter straps that prevent sagging away from your back, sternum strap and hip belt that perfectly transfers weight away from the shoulders. I had a comfortable, hands-free trek through an airport terminal, onto a monorail, up and down subway stairs and along a half mile of sidewalk to my hotel. I'll never drag along rolling carry-on luggage again.

Inside the main compartment, I fit four days worth of clothing: a pair of shoes, shirts/pants in one large and one medium Osprey packing cubes, sweater, rain jacket, and small items like underwear, eyeglass cases and belts. The TSA-approved one-quart bag of toiletries fit in the external front zip pocket. With the main compartment filled, the middle pockets for a laptop computer and other items get compressed, but I fit slim items like travel documents and the detachable shoulder strap. That strap is actually convenient to quickly carry the pack at your side in the airport gate, and when boarding aircraft and trains.

I love how the harness can be folded under a secure, zippered panel to streamline the pack in an aircraft cabin overhead compartment or when checking luggage on a small regional jet. To stow the harness behind the panel, loosen the load lifter straps so the shoulder harnesses fold flat -- otherwise they stick out and don't compress.

I am happy with this pack. I rated it four instead of five stars because the zippers are not high-quality YKK, so their long-term durability is unknown. Also, the Volcanic Grey color is actually a greenish-gray, NOT the true charcoal gray pictured online.

2 Weeks in Europe
This backpack was a key part in my 2 week trip across Europe. This was the only main travel bag I had. I had no issues using this as my carry on even when using international flights within Europe (i.e. Ryan Air). I was able to put it under my chair or above head perpendicularly which was great. I loved the option to change it from a back pack to a duffel bag by zippering in the straps. This was especially convenient when getting on and off trains. I would zip the straps in and carry the bag in front of me as a sort of guide when maneuvering through people. This prevented the straps from hitting people and the backpack not hitting people if I had been wearing it. I still use this backpack for normal weekend get aways and it's been two years since I bought it and there isn't a single sign of wear and tear. And that's not an exaggeration. Not even a single scuff mark on it. The one and only complaint I have is the mesh water bottle holders. Because they are in the front, there's a lot of tension on the mesh. I always had a difficult time getting my Nalgene bottle in the holder. My water bottle often popped out so I would have to use the cross buckle straps to loop it through the water bottle handle so that it wouldn't fall out. Overall, great quality and strong material design.

Modifying this pack to make it perfect
Cons: no accessible pockets while wearing. Be practical and sew a thin fabric pocket on the right hip strap to drop your phone in. Add a matching one on the left for your super skinny wallet.

Straps too long: measure, cut and sear the new ends of the straps to reduce the number of dangling leashes. Remove entirely the inside compression straps. Your pack will always be full and contents will not shift.

No one who finds y our lost pack will EVER find the name/address pocket rolled up and hidden in bottom cavity. Sew a name/address patch on the Osprey logo black tongue inside the laptop section. It will quickly be discovered by anyone who finds your pack.

Almost perfect for hiking the Camino de Santiago
Before hiking the Camino for two weeks last month, I researched travel packs extensively. This one is the best, even with the Cons I have listed. Other reviewers noted the water bottle issue. Packing with two medium cubes really helped keeping my pack organized. Four and a half stars!

Best travel pack
I bought this in anticipation of a two-week trip because I wanted something a little bigger than my North Face pack. I can't say enough good things about the Farpoint 40. To give a little perspective on the use, I traveled with my two young kids and husband and we spent two weeks traveling in SE Asia. We visited 6 countries and took 12 flights. Needless to say, we packed and unpacked a LOT. My husband was jealous of my pack (enough that he inherited mine and I bought the Fairview 40 when we returned) because it fit things SO well and is exceptionally accessible, without looking like you're carrying a suitcase on your back. We flew on United, Cebu Pacific, Lion Air, Air Asia, and Air Mauritius. I'm 5'11" so am picky about leg room, but this pack fit well under the seat on every plane (I tried it before placing overhead, just to see), including the three budget airlines, plus fit with ease in the overhead bins. I easily fit three eBags small packing cubes (11 x 6.75 x 3) inside and secured by the Farpoint's inner compression straps, plus a pair of flip-flops, electronics, a LectroFan white noise machine (ridiculous, I know), and toiletries bag. Still had plenty of room. I suppose if you overpacked this, it would be hard to fit under the seat, but I honestly had zero problems. I'll keep recommending this pack to everyone, it's awesome.

Great backpack
I was looking for a travel backpack for some time, first was looking for wheeled backpacks but found it kind of not being practical for me, i do quiet a bit of business and leisure travel a year (5-8 times) and well aware of a good backpack or carry-on pros & cons.
finally i came to decide between this backpack and eagle creek 40 liter one and chose this, really like it.

Good but lack of updates over the years says look elsewhere
I use this for business travel for 5+ years. Great for carry-on in the USA can go overhead or under the seat even when full. I also use this to travel to China with 2 weeks of clothes (packing experts only). Comfortable for broad shoulders, but cannot remove/put away the hip belt when using the shoulder straps which gets in the way (must always fold them under after mounting the pack). The outside water bottle holders don't work for me when the pack is full. The metal frame is wonderful and is very comfortable on my back. The zippers have held up under stress, but they always feel subpar compared to my other packs with premium YKK zippers that seem to get better with use.

Overall I recommend this pack for airline travel, but the fact Osprey has not updated this pack over the years means I will pass on it when my current one wears out (starting to wear out now with material rips).

as close to perfection as gets
bought this as a little bro to the Farpoint 70, which up to this point i thought was perfect except its non carry on size. But the Farpoint 40, coupled with packing cubes is all you'll ever need. and the fact its carry on sized adds another layer of peace of mind.
