Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bag For International Travels I've been international traveling for over 12 years now. I've always used great packs, but they were all top-loaders and anyone who has had to live out of their pack knows how frustrating this gets. I finally had enough, so I broke down and bought the far point 70. The biggest selling point for me was the detachable day bag. It perfectly fits a 13 macbook air, iPad mini, a book, pens, external hard drive, a few toiletries, and a light change of clothes, which is perfect for airports. The main bag is more than enough room for whatever length of time your trip is, and for whatever type of trip you're on. I just travelled to Greece to the Refugee camps so I brought some medical stuff, and still fit a 9 day load out of personal gear. (My rule of thumb is, any trip longer than a month just pack for 9 days, I go with 9 incase I blow through a few pairs of undies and pants from that street food I should've stayed away from. It happens people)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for bigger trips Bought two of these a couple years ago to backpack around Australia for a month with 2 kids. We now use them for everything. For just us we probably would have gone with the smaller 55 but the bigger size allowed us to cram their stuff in as well and it comes in handy when we're packing bulkier winter stuff. Each person has their own color of packing cubes so it was easy to have 2 people's worth of stuff in one bag. We've done at least 15 flights with them so far and they still look like new. My only complaint is the so-called water bottle mesh pockets on the day pack (although I notice that the new write-up doesn't mention them as such) . We've tried a few different bottles and none of them ever stay put so the bottles go inside. We also ended up buying rain covers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wearable luggage! My Husband and I purchased this bag for a trip to Portugal so we didn't have to drag traditional wheeled luggage onto trains, busses and Metro. We made a great decision! It is light weight, roomy and has the features we wanted that made carrying comfortable. A bonus standard pack definitely came in handy. The Farpoint 70 is very durable, having survived multiple airline checked baggage stowage without tears or broken zippers. We highly recommend the Farpoint 70 Travel Pack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best travel pack ever! I love this pack. I've owned it for 6 years and in that time have taken it on extended abroad travels to Europe, Asia, and South America. It is excellent for plane and train travel given its strap stowage, and removable day pack. You can easily fit several weeks worth of clothing, etc. in its main pocket. It's much more user-friendly than a top-loader for international travel. I check the main pack and take the daypack as hand luggage. In a pinch I've checked both pieces together to accommodate an extra carry-on. Also it's one of the most durable packs I've ever owned. After most trips I run it through a 2 hour high heat dryer cycle at the laundromat to kill any bed bugs, and have also subjected it to two weeks in a -80C deep freezer. It's still going strong! With only one small hole (that I blame on the baggage handlers). The college where I teach does a lot of study abroad travel with students around the globe. The Farpoint series is always my recommendation for students looking for a travel friendly way to go from train-to-trail. Great design and great construction!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful travel pack! I love this travel pack! Easy to load, and using compression cubes can fit a TON of gear inside. The 20L detachable day pack is fantastic as well - laptop and everything I need access to to is at my fingertips. I have NOT had to check this bag on any of my trips...yet. By stowing the shoulder straps to make it look like a small duffel bag I have not had anyone ever question it going on board. Having said that, with small regional jets it would have to go as checked but any "normal" domestic flight and international flight has aways been easy to bring on board. Th only thing I would say is lacking is an easier way to carry the bag with the shoulder straps stowed away. Only option at that point is holding the handles - I have a Osprey 46L and it has the ability to use a single shoulder strap with a plastic loop at the top and bottom of the bag. Perhaps a minor complaint as I still love the bag and think it is perfect. I use the Farpoint 70L for trips 5-6+ weeks and the Osprey Porter 46L for anything less...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility for Travel Worth the Price My wife and I both got these for our honeymoon through Greece & Turkey. Having a backpack/travel bag/ and zip off day pack is and was perfect for the occasion. The pockets are well through through for the main bag as well as the zip-off pack. Both packs are comfortable and from a strap perspective. The main bag is very easy to load up and perfect zipper construction so you can grab something from the bottom of the pack without disrupting everything to get to it. Nice job Osprey, I continue to be a fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome pack I bought this pack specifically for a trip I'm taking in August but took it on a trial run for a trip in April and it's fantastic. It will carry everything I need and comfortable to carry. I bought this pack because I was going to be flying rather than backpacking so being able to secure the straps in their own compartment allows me to know they won't get caught up in the conveyor belts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Easy to use Pack I recently travelled to Europe for 2 weeks and stayed in hostels, hotels, AirBnb etc. I thought this pack was great! The pack seemed sturdy and I had no issues with zippers. It was very easy to pack compared to the top loading packs. The straps were fine but perhaps less comfortable compared to a traditional pack if you are doing long hikes. I liked that the straps were concealable & protectable for flights. I used the day pack for our day adventures and it was a perfect size for me. The day pack has 2 inside slots for valuables/tablet etc. The day pack attaches to the travel pack by zipper on the back of the bag which was useful. The day pack can also attach via clips to wear hands free on your front. This was particularly helpful at airports and train stations when I had both bags but didn't want to attach the day pack to the back of the travel pack as I needed easy access to the day pack. Overall, I thought this pack was easy to use and I am happy with my choice of pack.

How would this hold up on a 60 day thru hike? Should I dish out the cash for another pack?

Asked by: MuddyMae
This backpack is designed for travel and does not have enough structure in the hipbelt or harness to be comfortable enough for most people on a 60 day backpacking trip.

Does this bag qualify as a carry-on?

Asked by: MLJones
The Farpoint 70 Travel Pack is too large to fit most carry on restrictions. The dimensions are listed under the specs. Most airlines require a piece of carry-on luggage to be no bigger than 45 linear inches (L + W + H) to meet carry-on size restrictions. This can vary so please check with your airline ahead of time.
