Description

Osprey’s Farpoint 55 is the perfect companion for a long weekend. Feel free to add an extra sweater and a pair of waterproof boots; this pack is designed to handle loads up to 50 pounds.

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 main Farpoint 55 pack comes with a detachable Farpoint daypack to carry the essential for a hike in the hills or an excursion downtown.

    Comments about Osprey FARPOINT 55:

    So after a lot of research I bought this bag for my backpacking trips and I do not regret my choice at all. I've used this backpack in two trips so far, one to Peru in June 2015 and my last trip of 10 months through Central/Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

    The pack can fit all that you need easily, the materials are top quality and the organisation is perfect. The only con I can mention is that it's a little bigger than what RyanAir and WizzAir consider as carry-on size, at least on paper (8 cm longer and 5 cm deeper) ; I actually managed to get it into one of those "measuring" thingies at the airport but never really risked trying to pass it as carry on. So, if you want to fly with low cost airlines take that into consideration, I'm sure you can pass it as carry on but there's always that "danger" of being caught and made to pay to check the bag.

        I'm a digital nomad. I carry this and a purse (55L/S/M). Traveled with it in Mexico for four months. I camped, stayed in hostels, airbnb's, and hotels. Works great and looks great in all situations. Now packing it for a seven month trip. Would buy again. Recommended.

        I went for 21 days tours waking aroud thailand and 21 days treking in nepal and this bag is just the perfect for me . I can put anything i need and have it acces quick, just unzip the main bag and you can see all your stuff. When you get to a place where you are going to be for a couple days just unzip the caryon bag and you got your day pack. The only thing it dos'nt have is a rain cover, and you will defenitively need one, i dont care about walking in a mountain under the rain for a day long, but you need your stuff to be dry when you finaly reach your destination ....

          Comments about Osprey FARPOINT 55:

          Let me just start off and say that Osprey backpacks are amazing! Since my last trip abroad, I realized I needed a smaller backpack that is carry-on size. I had 11 flights my last trip and not once was I asked to check it in. It helps to unzip the daypack so it doesn't appear as bulky. I loved that the Farpoint zips all around. It was easy to reach in and grab whatever I needed. Because it's just one big storage compartment, it helps to have traveling cubes to stay organized. This pack is very comfortable. There is plenty of padding on the shoulders and hipbelt. Overall, a very good backpack! I recommend this one to all my friends.

            I bought this pack for traveling overseas and have used it to go to Japan and Canada. My absolute favorite part is the detachable day pack and I have used that thing countless times, even when I decided not to use the main pack for one trip.

            The main pack is comfortable to wear and fits a surprising amount of stuff, but there is one thing that I found is a detractor and that is it is above most airline's carry on size restrictions. If you prefer carrying your bag on the plane to skip costs or for peace of mind, then this may not be the pack for you. Of course the thing looks small enough that I'm sure most airlines aren't going to stop you to ask to measure it - but if you get stuck in a full flight it's possible you may not be able to fit it in one of the overhead bins. It's a small issue, but could potentially be major for some.

            I do wish that there were more straps available on the outside of the pack - it would be nice to be able to strap a tent and sleeping pad on the outside, but if you're crafty I'm sure there's a way to do it.

              I've used this bag on several 2 -4 week trips to Central America. I travel light, and it was perfect - especially for warmer weather packing. To illustrate how much you can actually fit into this, I use it with 3 slim packing cubes of clothes, a small cosmetic bag, a quart size ziplock for liquids, 1 shoe bag with 2 pairs of shoes in it, a sun hat, sarong, 2 bathing suits, and then in the daypack: electronics, small camera, guide book, scarf, light wrap, snacks, flat water bottle, few extras, and voila - ready to go! I pack enough clothing for about 6 days and then wash. The packing cubes work as compression bags and really maximize the space and help keep it organized. I LOVE how easy it is to open and unpack this bag and how well made, yet very lightweight it is. Handy that the straps fold inside, too. It's comfortable and stable for travel but I don't think I'd use it to trek or hike. I have the s/m size and always take it carry-on with no issues. I wish I'd had this when I spent 2 months in SE Asia several years ago. I look a top loading bag and it was such a pain to find things and not comfortable. I use the daypack by itself, too. I wish the water bottle holders were a little roomier, but other than that it's fine.

              Agree with previous reviewer. It will be perfect if there is a shoulder strap and some pockets.
              But still I love my Fairpoint 55. I survived 2 weeks of winter in Morocco with my winter gears, and it is just perfect. May be because I travel light, I only bring necessities, to me this is more than just weekend hike, I use it for travelling.

              Comments about Osprey FARPOINT 55:

              Osprey..... You almost made the perfect pack, and seeing as how no one else is getting it right here is your chance to tap into a good market. There are two things missing on this pack to make it a true weekend warrior/ bussiness travelers dream bag.

              1- more tech/ bussiness oriented pouches and pockets in the day pack. Currently there is a laptop/ tablet sleeve (good start), and a large zipper pouch. The reality is that it's a mess. Pens, hard drives, usb charging cords, cell phone, wallet, etc all end up in a huge tangled mess. Help us travelers out to get organized. Take a cue from many of the techie day packs out there like north face surge, etc.. Doesn't have to be fancy, but ditch the deep zipper pouch and add some smaller compartments that we can work with

              2- add a shoulder strap. The design of the far point 55 is brilliant, it's big enough to travel for at least 3-4 days depending on the climate, work, etc, but small enough to take as carry on with most domestic us airlines. It's not marketed this was, but if you take off the daypack portion, the main pack is carry on size. It looks the part when you stow the backpack straps, looking more like a modest duffle bag. The problem is you have to carry it by the side handle because there is no optional shoulder strap or attachment. I don't get it, the far point 40 has this feature but not this one?

              For my work, I need to travel fast and light through Washington and Alaska for days at a time. I'm really happy with the pack besides these two points. It is rugged and reliable, and when I suit up for office work in my travels it fits in as a sleek addition. It truly would be perfect if you would consider these two issues. Until then I'll be keeping my eye out for someone to get it right.
