Osprey's far point 40 is perfect for a weekend getaway in the city or the wilderness. The lightwood frame suspension transfers the load from harness to hip belt. A mesh back panel improves ventilation and the mesh on the harness and hip belt reduces chafing under load. The entire suspension stows away under a zippered panel creating a sleek silhouette for transport. Unzip the lockable sliders to access the main compartment. Inside there's a mesh pocket for small items. Dual compression straps keep cargo from shifting during Transit. Outside you'll find a zippered front panel slash pocket to keep you organized and sewn attachment points to lash on extra gear. No matter how much you choose to carry, dual compression straps stabilize the load. The padded top and side handles give you purchase when you need to toss the far point 40 into the back of the bus.

Even when you fill it up fully, it feels very light and the chest/waist straps are great for that extra padded support and stability. It never felt heavy or awkward. All I had to do was get used to my larger body profile so that I wasn't knocking stuff over in souvenir shops when I walk down cramped aisles, lol.
This backpack is not meant to carry gear, but I've managed to successfully squeeze in massive sleeping bags, hiking equipment, tents, and lots of camping gear into this guy too. It's surprisingly durable and the zippers don't break under intense tension. The fabric also is super sturdy and doesn't snap or tear when fully stretched out.
All in all, this is EXCELLENT value for a two-week backpacking trip. If you're looking for extended longer-term travel for 2-3 months, you might want to go with the Farpoint 70L one instead.
I took this bag for one week to Germany and Poland. I also checked a bag because this was for a work trip, so in this bag i carried the following items and still had space to spare. This bag was perfect for quick switch between travel backpack and office satchel. It was able to hold very large bottles of water. The extra straps inside to tighten down and on the outside made it easier to reduce the bag profile. If you watch the youtube videos on this please note it's what they say it is. Your success will come on how you organize it. With that being said, there are not a lot of pockets etc.. In the second picket there is a zipper mesh pocket, and a tablet/laptop sleeve. However if you have pack like i listed below it would be wise to have ziploc bags for different groups of items. It helps keep it organized.
Now for mobility. I pulled two hail Mary runs on my return trip home. And when i say runs, i mean full sprint dodging babies and the elderly - jumping luggage and chairs. In both Munich and Chicago i literally grabbed the shoulder straps, the chest strap, and waist strap and pulled them tight. And it was a flawless run, with no fear of the bag falling off or interfering with my ability to run.

The pack opens up completely like a suitcase, which was a HUGE pro. I couldn't imagine getting my things from a top-loading bag. It would've been terrible and inconvenient. There are many convenient pockets to organize your things: passport, wallet, etc. I always knew where to look. This is also a big pro for me, because it is really easy for me to just throw things into a big bag with no organization. This pack made it easy to organize.
I packed a LOT of stuff in here. Way more than needed for a 7-day trip, but I was attending a wedding, so I fit makeup, three gowns, a curling iron, and heels in there in addition to my regular clothing. Definitely not bad considering I had everything I needed on my back! I have no doubts that this backpack will be perfect for my Europe trip. I'll be packing much simpler clothing, no makeup, and of course no curling iron (who has time to curl your hair at a hostel?), so I know that I'll make it for 20 days no problem.
Overall, I recommend this! Get the S/M if you're short like me. The weight was so beautifully distributed throughout my back/hips that it was never uncomfortable (this does require some packing planning on your part!). And the look of the bag as whole is not too flashy.
