A great travel backpack should carry like the best backcountry backpack without compromising the features needed for travel convenience. Enter the Osprey men's Waypoint 85 pack, which shares the same Ethereal suspension system as Osprey's lightweight and comfortable Aether 60 backcountry pack but is loaded with travel-specific extras. The Ethereal system employs interchangeable IsoForm harnesses to help you customize the fit, along with a built-in ErgoPull hip belt to keep the load comfortably on your hips without feeling bulky. Users will also appreciate the system's spacer-mesh back panel and plastic frame sheet, which combine to keep your load safe and stable. However, in addition to pack-standard sleeping pad straps and ice-axe loops, the Waypoint 85 comes with such travel-friendly features as interior clothing straps to keep your clothing in place and wrinkle-free; a magazine pocket to keep you well-read during long layovers; and a built-in luggage-style handle for when you need to carry the bag like a suitcase. And to facilitate easier airport and train travel, the bag's suspension system zips away stealthily into the back panel, so the shoulder straps and hip belt will stay safely stowed while you're on the move. The features combine to make the Waypoint 85 ideal for both backpacking trips across Europe and hiking trips through Central America.



The Waypoint 85 comes with a detachable daypack for short hikes or daytrips.
As with any good pack, the Waypoint 85 also includes plenty of storage space, with a panel-zip main compartment with lockable pulls, a zipper mesh pocket on the inside front panel, and a zippered internal side mesh pocket. Plus, the Waypoint 85 offers a detachable daypack, so you can take short daytrips without having to haul all your gear along. Other features include gear attachment points, stretch-woven side pockets, and an adjustable sternum strap with an emergency whistle. The Waypoint 85 offers a capacity of 5,100 cubic inches, weighs 5 pounds 13 ounces without gear, and carries a lifetime warranty.

About Osprey
Things at Osprey move full circle, starting with the people, moving to the product, and then back again to the people for the lifetime of the product. Company founders Mike Pfotenhauer and Laurie White started the company in 1974 in Santa Cruz, California, introducing such features in the next few years as breathable mesh panels, custom-fit internal frame mountaineering packs, and slide adjustable chest straps. The company moved to a former Gore-tex factory in Dolores, Colorado, in 1990, and then to Cortez, Colorado, in 1994. Nestled in the corner of the rugged San Juan mountains and on the edge of vast sandstone canyon country, the Cortez landscape provides the Osprey team with constant inspiration and a superb testing ground for the packs.

The remainder of the team, including Osprey founder and head designer Pfotenhauer, reside in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Surrounded by heat, endless bustle, and vibrant energy, Team Vietnam designs and builds Osprey packs to the company's exacting standards. Living in HCM City provides several benefits, including the ability to ensure fair labor standards for the company's manufacturing employees and establish face-to-face relationships with the factories that build the company's packs. Osprey's mission is to create innovative, high-performance gear that reflects the employees' love of adventure and devotion to the outdoors.

I wore this awesome pack around the world for more than a year and a half, from late 2009 through mid 2011, truly testing it's limits during the times I had it heavily loaded (at *least* 50 lbs a few times - I was often *just* at the weight limit for most airlines) when I'd be coming from a cold climate and entering a warm one, e.g. all my warm clothes and everything else was inside it while I was forced back into shorts and flip flops, such as when I arrived in SE Asia. In new zealand where I was for the better part of a year, I even took it on a few multi-night treks. While it wasn't as secure in terms balance while hiking as atrue backpacking pack would be (largely because it loads outward much more than it loads upward) the compression straps and other features still make it perform just fine even for that application and i never felt sorry to have it with me. The thing is bulletproof and survived MANY baggage checks and train rides. I still have it and Osprey has sent me a couple replacement buckles that failed, no charge or questions asked. I wouldn't hesitate to take it around the world for another year and a half and I'm sure it would make it just fine. It is certianly worn now and faded in places, but nothing major has failed or is looking stressed enough that it might. And even it it did I know I'd be taken care of now. Can't say enough about this company and the packs they make. The best. Period. This pack is happiest when helping you transport your worldly possessions from place to place to place... It wants to do this.

Just to preface, I am an avid traveler and have been on many 2-6 month trips with a roller bag or a traditional top loading backpack. I have done over a thousand miles on the appalachian trail and have lived in several different countries. I can absolutely say this is a Great Bag! For this particular trip we traveled for two months in India and acrosss Europe on trains, bikes, cars, and planes. This bag did it all. The back pack straps are comfortable and the hipbelt is substantial enough to work. The space is adequate for all your clothes and some souvenirs. The bag is not very heavy which is nice, but the material is very solid and took the airport beatings and anything else I could throw at it. The zippers are heavy duty and track well. The sleeping bag compartment is nice for shoes or stinky socks or wet bathing suits. Pack it like a suit case and carry it like backpack. I reccomend this pack over a traditional hiking back pack because it is easier to pack than a top loader, and on long trips where you're taking more than a pair of shorts and a few t-shirts, its nice to be able to open the pack all the way up. I also found the side pockets handy for organizing small nick nacks. There are two, one accessible from the inside and outside of the pack, and one only from the inside, they both run the full length of the pack. The handles are nice and make the pack easy to maneuver or throw and the curvature of the back panel makes it comfortable to carry as luggage. The detachable backpack was my only complaint, the way the zipper works on it is just weird, you have to throw the straps over the front of the bag to access the backpack through the back panel. This was super annoying for about one whole month until I finally got used to it.Read more ›

The materials and construction are high quality. It lasted through 6 months of intense travel all over the world. It dries quickly if it gets wet, there are compartments for almost every use one can conceive of, it's comfortable to carry (even heavily loaded), and the detachable day-pack is extremely useful.

I wore this pack around the world for 12 months through 26 countries while traveling with my family. It was loaded on the tops of buses, into taxis, on donkey carts, on camels and hauled around through dirt filled streets and is in the same shape as it was when we left. Great Great pack. Highly recommended.

So far I've only used it on a 1 week trip to Japan, but it easily held everything (including two suits I had to bring for work). Opening it from the top keeps everything organized and quick to access in hotels.

The best part is the organization support - 3 interior pockets, plus a quick access pocket accessible from both outside and inside (great for umbrellas, first aid, etc.). Plus, bottom facing pouch I used for laundry.

The detachable daypack is slim, comfortable, and secure (back facing opening), but can hold a surprising amount. A stash pack on top keeps tissues or other quick access. Finally, the straps of the entire backpack zip up, perfect for checked baggage.

The only problem is balance. When traveling around subways and streets it's fine, but keeping a laptop or other heavy equipment in the daypack can make it tough to walk significant distances. In urban Japan, hopping in and off subways, this was a non issue. It is primarily for travel, not backwoods hiking (although, and bearing in mind I don't do much overnight hiking, I still imagine it would work if carefully packed).

I love this backpack. I bought it specifically for a trip I took to Japan with my family last month. I travel light but my wife and daughter are fond of giant suitcases, we were traveling around Japan and using public transportation so I knew we would be hauling our bags long distances between hotels and bus/train stations. By having all of my gear comfortably on my back I had free hands to handle some of the girl's luggage. This really helped make this aspect of our trip a breeze.
Coming and going to Japan I had the "Osprey" setup like a regular suitcase. Converting to a backpack is quick and easy. It is very well designed and very good looking. I highly recommend this item.
