OutdoorGearLab.com – Featuring Farpoint 55 – April 20, 2013


A 55-liter travel pack with a detachable day pack, the Osprey Farpoint has our testers excited to book a flight to somewhere far, far away. The Editor’s Choice winner, the Farpoint has a taller, slimmer design that is easier to carry than the shorter, wider packs we tested. While you should always consider personal fit first and foremost, our testers agreed that the taller pack provided greater balance and mobility than packs like Eagle Creek Rincon 65, making it our favorite travel-pack-that-can-also-be-used-for-backcountry-adventures. Unlike the frameless Osprey Porter, the Farpoint’s peripheral frame successfully transfers the weight to the padded hip belt, making it comfortable to carry, even when packed to the gills. However, if you are considering purchasing this pack because it transfers well into outdoor activities, remember that you can always use a backpacking pack and one of our compressible day pack as your travel pack set-up. For more information on these types of packs, be sure to check out our Backpacking backpack Review. On the other hand, this pack has numerous convenient features that can help streamline packing and just make traveling a little simpler.
