Catering to adventurers who are looking for value-packed versatility, the Osprey Farpoint 70 offers travel-friendly features in a trail-worthy backpack. The Farpoint 70 delivers load-carrying capability, over 4000 cubic inches of storage capacity and the comfortable fit you've come to expect from Osprey.
Constantly striving to enhance comfort and performance, Osprey has equipped the Farpoint 70 pack with a fully-featured suspension system. In expectation of comfortably carrying loads of up to 40 pounds, the Farpoint 70 employs a LightWire frame and a spacer mesh backpanel to grant strength, stability and load transfer. Further enhancing fit, the padded hipbelt utilizes an ErgoPull closure that draws tension along the top and the bottom of the belt. A sliding sternum strap and load-lifter straps allow you to fine-tune fit with on-the-go adjustments. The Farpoint 70 comes in two sizes. The Small/Medium size accommodates torsos less than 19" in length while a Medium/Large size fits torso lengths greater than 19 inches. When checking the Farpoint 70 at the airport or the train station, you can safely tuck the harness and hipbelt behind an integrated zippered security panel to ensure that your pack stows safely.
Both sizes of the Farpoint 70 offer ample room for carrying clothes and gear. The Small/Medium version provides 4000 cubic inches of storage capacity while the Medium/Large has a 4200 cubic inch capacity. The main packbag is accessed by a wide-opening front panel zipper. A large, zippered mesh pocket on the inside of the front panel is ideal for separating and organizing clothes and gear. Internal compression straps allow you to safely secure the contents of the Farpoint 70. Stretch-woven side pockets keep water bottles and other gear close at hand. Removable straps on the lower portion of the pack are strategically placed to haul a sleeping pad.
A large pocket on the front of the Farpoint 70 can be detached entirely for use as a fully functional day pack. Integrated shoulder straps and a padded backpanel provide stability and comfort. An adjustable sternum strap further enhances fit. The day pack has zippered panel access, as well as a large front pocket. Dual stretch side pockets offer additional storage options. An internal sleeve makes the day pack hydration system (not included) compatible and doubles as a laptop sleeve. After a day of adventure, the pack safely and securely zippers and clips back onto the front of the Farpoint 70.
Constructed of durable 210 x 330D Nylon Shadow box and 420D Nylon Pack Cloth fabrics, the Osprey Farpoint 70 convertible travel pack is available in your choice of color options.

Likes: nice design of outside elements.
Dislikes: too small for my needs.
Likes: Convienience of being able to carry luggage on my back. Love that I can carry the day pack separately or attach it so that it's just one piece.
Dislikes: Nothing yet. I bought it for a two week trip to Europe in August, so I haven't had the chance to really use it.
Likes: I was more than surprised with the quality of this backpack. I'll use this backpack for traveling and camping. The large pack can be used for packing most clothing/wardrobe items and can be checked in with an airline like luggage. The shoulder straps even tuck away and remain hidden for more of a "suitcase" feel. The pack will be nicer to deal with when standing in line for a plane because I will have it on my back, instead of dragging it by my side or carrying it. The detachable daypack is perfect for when you've reached your destination, and serves as a great carrying tool for your personal belongings on-the-go, or could work great as a carry on.
Dislikes: It didn't come with a rain cover like many high-end backpacks. I wish it had. I don't have the extra money to purchase one, yet.
