Product Description

Amazon.com

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 65 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 65 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 65 ideal for both backpacking trips across Europe and hiking trips through Central America.



The Waypoint 65 comes with a detachable daypack for short hikes or daytrips.
As with any good pack, the Waypoint 65 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 65 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 65 offers a capacity of 4,000 cubic inches, weighs 5 pounds 7 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 many benefits, including the ability to ensure fair labor standards for the company's 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.

Packing cubes are a great remedy for this if using as luggage.

Some features that we really like about this particular backpack are the detachable day pack and the ability to cover the shoulder straps for air travel.

Main pack opens like a suitcase, no more having to dig down from the top like most other packs.

The Waypoint 65 is, like all Osprey packs, beautifully built, and quite attractive. The main pack is unexpectedly capacious, both by design and through conservative specsmanship.
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.

I've owned the Waypoint for 10 months, purchased it to avoid checked baggage fees, and have taken it on 3 trips (none for actual backpacking) through 5 airports. I'm a former amateur backpacker & bivouacer. I've owned the Gregory Z65 Backpacking Light Pack, an Army issue external frame pack, and a well out of production external frame pack from back in the mid 80s. I've also owned a number of daypacks and am now convinced that Osprey makes the best backpacks on the planet.

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.

I think that you should pick your gear for your intention. This pack was picked because I went to Peru for a month this summer. Nice, being able to go from hostel to hostel and open that pack up from the top, like a suitcase, and not dig through like ordinary packs. It has a big main area with two side pockets. It also has a detachable small backpack that I used to carry my valuables everywhere. On the move, I could zip the small pack onto the big pack and then unzip it quickly at the airport to check the main bag and keep the smaller one as a carry on.
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!

Very happy with this pack, currently travelling now with it. More than ample space for packing stuff to travel with, the secondary pack main storage area is only accessible by taking it off from your back, the zip is on the underside, some may find that annoying but its great if your worried about pickpockets. Main pack opens like a suitcase, no more having to dig down from the top like most other packs. You can also zip up the straps making it into a suitcase as well. fully adjustable straps height etc, which is standard for most packs. Build quality is great. I highly recommend this backpack.
