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.

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.

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.

    Comments about Osprey FARPOINT 55:

    I love the bag, but the day pack needs work. When I get to my destination, I rely on the day pack and it is not great. you cannot fit a water bottle or anything in the exterior pockets. Osprey should raise the price a little and include a good day pack.

      Comments about Osprey FARPOINT 55:

      I bought this as a travel backpack to use around Europe etc. but I ended up having to return this. It's too tall to be considered a carry on. MAYBE you can get away with the S/M, but tall people travel too! Please, please please Osprey figure out a way to make both the S/M and the M/L size fit carry on guidelines. Have the straps connected closer to the top of the pack or something. This is such a comfortable backpack that's lightweight and lockable and easy to open up and close and organize. I love the detachable daypack and the size is perfect. It just defeats the purpose if I have to pay to check this bag on every flight I take. I would absolutely recommend this pack if the height issue can somehow be resolved.

        Comments about Osprey FARPOINT 55:

        Bought two of these 2 years ago for a trip to Ireland. My husband and I carried everything we needed for 10 days with two small children (including diapers!) and still had room to spare! We have since used them for air travel, car camping, and a host of day adventures. Favorite features- detachable daypack, full zipper (so easy to pack!), and the ability to hide the harness for flying. When flying we always carry-on and have never had any issue. The best part is being hands free to handle papers (boarding passes, maps, etc.) and hold our children's hands as we maneuver through airports or traffic. I'm actually eager for our girls to be old enough to have their own. Fantastic bag Osprey!

        this has been my main go to bag for the past 2 years. and it fits all my needs. i've taken it to europe 3 times in the past 2 years for extended time and soon to be a 4th time. you dont have to check this bag on flights. it fits in all over head compartments domestic or international flights.the only planes this bag wont fit on is the little small crop dusters lol. daypack that comes with the bag is deceptively spacious. when walking europe it can store hat, gloves, jacket, camera, water bottle and its still have room. if your a minimalist then this bag is for you. for a 2 week trip to europe i use this bag and the daypack. versatility of changing it from a backpack to a duffle bag is really quick. and you can use the area where straps are located on the bag as additional storage for jacket before boarding the plane. hopes this helps and happy traveling

        Comments about Osprey FARPOINT 55:

        My family of three was headed out for a year-long adventure, so I bought one for both my husband and me. Our eight year-old daughter wanted one so badly, but she has to settle for a kids' Osprey pack until she's big enough to carry all her things. Maybe next time! This pack was great because we could each carry our backpack and pull a carry-on sized rolling suitcase. This made going up and down stairs and in and out of subways doable--not easy, but we could manage. Our first stop was a month of traveling in Thailand. We ditched the rolling suitcases and just carried all our stuff in the two far points. The zipper design makes access super easy and the mesh pockets inside help with organization. I also liked the interior compression straps that helped hold our clothing in place. By the end of our time the packs were heavy and I wouldn't do a long backpacking trip carrying this pack. The kangaroo carry option with the two packs is great! We did go trekking in Nepal and our porter claimed she was comfortable carrying the pack (not too heavy) since we all carried 1/2 of our own stuff and brought very little with us. Our porter used the external straps to attach her own personal bag as well. During our time in Kathmandu, my only daypack was the small one that's part of this pack. The mesh on it pilled EVERY piece of clothing it came in contact with. I contacted Osprey and they said they knew about this problem. Because I was in Nepal for the year, I didn't have a way to return it and therefore used the resources of Nepal and had a tailor take the small pack apart and cover the mesh with a different fabric. (I definitely held my breath when I gave him permission to take my backpack apart!) Now it's fine, but I hope Osprey fixes this problem. After Nepal, we traveled in Europe and taking these bags on small airplanes was no problem. We also could carry a lot and navigate our way through cities. I look forward to years of travel with my Farpoint!

          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 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 ....
