The daypack is very nicely organized, with an effective laptop compartment and padding for the fragile electronics that will be carried within.
The Waypoint's suspension system is actually capable of handling a heavy load comfortably for the shorter distances that the typical traveler will walk. These features have made it quite popular.
But unlike Osprey's innovative and functional hiking backpacks, the Waypoint's unusual design limits its versatility, especially its ability to adapt to less-than-full loads.
If this review seems very critical, it's out of frustration; the Waypoint could be the best travel bag on the market, but it misses the mark in a couple of key areas. More on that in a minute.
I have traveled for over two decades internationally using detachable-daypack style travel backpacks, mostly Eagle Creek brand, the originator of this design (brand bias warning).
In my travels, I have never needed more than a 42L bag in summer season trips of up to 4 weeks, as long as I didn't buy a lot of souvenirs.
More recently I've been searching for a bit bigger bag to handle longer trips in colder climates - about 50-55L. Most manufacturers now offer only 40-45L and 65-75L main bags - carry-on size and gargantuan.
The Waypoint 65 puts more of its total volume in the main pack - the daypack is only 15L instead of the more typical 20L.
Thus, the Waypoint 65's main pack is easily 50L in the medium size and 53L in the large size - fully 5-8L (300-500 cu. in.) larger than other 65L bags. Nirvana? Perhaps.Read more ›
This pack probably fits into the casual lightweight category. It's heavier than an ultralight or fastpacker's pack and doesn't feel like it's designed for rugged trail use. The internal support is similar to that of an ultralight pack, but slightly more. Back ventilation is basically a joke, but workable and reasonable for this category. No real feasible hydration options (although you could work it through the headphone holes in the daypack). Hip supports lack pockets, but it's an Osprey so access is still great on the sides. The daypack also lacks enough internal straps for hydration options but is open enough to be versatile and useful, also has space designated for office supplies. A great daypack for a city trekker without a doubt, but less useful in the back country. Depending on your skills I think you can use this as a 2 to 5 day pack, but heavy trail use requires lots more compression straps in my opinion so I'd keep it under 8 mi a day myself. If you're not carrying food you can easily do a little more than a week in the summer or 4 days in the winter (if you pack like a backpacker) before recycling.Read more ›
The main pack also has a hip belt and adjustable shoulder belts. These fold into the pack and are zipped up with a cover, making the osprey a "suitcase" that is easy to deal with at the airport, with no snags to tear the belts or pack.
The smaller pack opens up to the main compartment on the back side. What this means is that no one can unzip the main compartment while you are wearing it.
NOT a camping backpack, but I took it to Yosemite anyway. It held up fine.
Expensive (for me) but a good investment!
