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.
1) Go pro hero 4, case, selfie stick
2) Portable charger
3) laptop 15.5 inch, charger, and six misc charging cords
4) two pairs of jeans, a pull over light sweatshirt, two shirts, two pairs of socks, and two undergarments
5) all pertinent travel documents
6) Box of Belvita snacks
7) Ziploc bag of medicine/vitamins
We moved from cooler weather in Paris and Salzburg to warmer weather in Venice and Rome, necessitating a wide ranging wardrobe. Using Eagle Creek packing cubes, I was able to pack the following in my pack: a pair of jeans, a medium length skirt, two knee length skirts, a pair of gym weight capris, four tees, a pair of PJs, five pairs of underwear, one bra, two pairs of socks, a car coat length heavy hooded LL Bean raincoat, a pair of Toms, two toiletry bags (a TSA one and another), a small make up bag, a bag with ten medication bottles, a large heavy plastic zip top envelope with all travel documents and tickets, and a small bag of misc necessities (small USB cords, small caribiners, etc.). The bag weighed about 15 lbs packed and I had plenty of room left. On the return trip, I easily found room for a very well bubble wrapped small ceramic gift item, a t-shirt, and a boxed shot glass. I could certainly have brought more home. My six foot tall husband packed, using cubes, a pair of jeans, three pairs of cargo shorts, PJ pants, four tees, underwear, undershirts, a raincoat, a pair of shoes, his dopp kit + TSA bag, Kindle, iTouch, charging cords, plug adapter kit, and had room to spare. His packed bag weighed 17 lbs.
Converting these bags from backpacks to duffles, to take on and off planes and some trains, was a breeze. The back panel unzips and rolls down, securing with Velcro at the bottom and releasing the straps. In reverse, just separate the Velcro, tuck the straps and zip up. The process is very fast and very easy and we found the bags easy to carry with the handles or the messenger bag strap. A key for me is that I also found that the messenger strap didn't get in the way when I was using the bag as a backpack, a plus since I didn't want to hassle with unclipping it and putting it back.
We found these to be very comfortable. My stubborn fifteen year old whined about hers until she let her Dad adjust her straps and convince her to use her sternum strap and hip belt. Then she also found it comfortable! I won't pretend we used them every day, though. We carried them about every four days, from apartments through Metro stations, onto trains, and walking to apartments. We also carried them in airports and transporting to and fro. It was absolutely enough to get a sense of how they feel, but not a sense of their durability, though I expect they'd do very well. We were on Air Canada the whole way to and from Europe and had no problem carrying these on.
I would recommend these packs without reservation. In retrospect, my husband would have gone with the next size up. He had no problems at all with the small/medium as far as packing it, but thinks he might have preferred the feel of the larger pack on his back. He has used this pack on two other trips and been happy with it both of those times, as well.
We purchased the Osprey Porter 30 with the attached Daylite pack for my twelve year old and I'll post reviews for those, too.

Und natürlich den Osprey Farpoint 40 M/L
Manch einer der aufgeführten ist schicker, cooler, leichter, hat vielleicht bessere Features wie versteckte Taschen oder lässt sich angenehmer tragen als der Osprey. Alle sind ungefähr gleich groß und auch Qualitativ vergleichbar. Der EagleCreek wirkt vielleicht etwas weniger wertig, ist aber auch sehr gut verarbeitet und der AEVOR lässt sich auf 45l vergrößern. Der Arcido Akra war optisch mein Favorit. Naises Teil!
Ich habe also meine Sachen in PackingCubes gepackt und nacheinander die Rucksäcke befüllt. Dabei zeigte sich das der Osprey am meisten "frisst". Wenn das Hauptfach tight gefüllt ist, ist er der einzige bei welchem man die anderen Fächer wie Laptopfach oder Außentaschen noch nutzen kann. Bei den anderen war das leider nicht mehr wirklich möglich. Außerdem hat er diverse Schlaufen an welchen man zb. mittels Karabiner weitere Sachen (Schuhe, Soundbox..) anhängen kann. Und die Verarbeitungsqualität sowie die Reisverschlüsse sind (auf Kosten des Gewichts 1.4kg - der Leichteste knapp 1kg) die Beste der getesteten.
- größtes Fassungsvermögen
- sehr durchdacht
- beste Verarbeitung
- beste Reisverschlüsse
- super zu tragen da "echter" Rucksack mit Bauch- und Brustgurt
- Tragegurte verstaubar (sehr praktisch im Flugzeug)
- relativ schwer
- nicht so schick / ziemlich verbreitet
Den Osprey Farpoint 40 kann ich uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Gegebenenfalls werde ich meine Rezension nach der Reise überarbeiten.
Update: Nie wieder Gepäck aufgeben, das macht alles so viel einfacher und hilft enorm nur die wirklich wichtigen Sachen mitzunehmen! Der Urlaub liegt 5 Monate zurück und gerade hab ich zufällig den Rucksack im Schrank gefunden. Ich kann kaum glauben das mein ganzes Zeug da reingepasst hat. Klamotten für 1-2 Wochen, Trekkingschuhe, Flipflops, Taucherbrille, iPad, Kindle, Ladegeräte, Kabel, Medikamente uvm...
Das funzt natürlich nur wenn man ausschließlich in den Sommer reist. Für verschiedene Klimazonen ist er dann wohl doch zu klein
Eigentlich sollte ich von Osprey Provisionen bekommen da sich mittlerweile 5-6 Bekannte auf meinen Rat hin das Teil gekauft haben. Habe bisher nix negatives gehört
After much research and seeing very expensive kickstarter projects with great designs, I found this. Not stupidly expensive, but seemed to tick all the right boxes for me.
The first test - would it fit my 15.6 inch Laptop? Yes, it fits perfectly. You wouldn't be able to get a bigger one in, this is defiantly the maximum size. The Laptop pouch is nicely padded and doesn't waste space. The pouch is in the front section of the bag, so my only complaint there is that with a full main section the weight isn't going to be int he best position, BUT the straps are so comfy and you have waist straps, so I don;t imagine it will matter too much.
Carrying - I've never had so many carry options on a bag, top handle, side handle, shoulder straps, waist strap and a single long shoulder strap! The shoulder and waist straps store nicely in a zipped pocket, so you can carry the bag neatly using just the other handles.
Overall quality is great, it feels sturdy, the zips work well and feel high quality. The full package just feels well thought out.
Room - For basic commuting I haven't even needed to touch the main compartment! The main compartment could easily fir a few days travel wear in it with my laptop and other stuff in the front. this bag is going to be my go to bag for pretty much all trips now.
Very pleased with this purchase.
If you're thinking of getting a higher capacity, there is a chance you may get charged extra at the airport. But, trust me, this bag will do more than enough! There are straps inside the bag to hold your clothing/items down so they don't move while in transit. It's a durable bag, also the zips allow padlocks on them for extra security of which I would recommend. Overall for the price its a bargain!
If you're thinking of what size to buy, if you contact Osprey you can have a PDF file which tells you the ideal height for the sizes instead of using the dedicated app they have. I bought S-M and i'm 5ft 7 (170cm) and it fits like a charm. I would suggest to go a size up if you are over 177cm. But please do not hesitate! Please see the image for sizing instructions!
Egal ob als Handgepäckrucksack auf kleinen Reisen oder als Reiserucksack für längere Reisen...er kann alles.
Ich habe ihn nun drei Wochen in Amerika auf einen Roadtrip getestet.
Das Hauptfach wirkt erstmal klein, hat aber die Wirkung einer Mary Poppins-Tasche oder eines Harry Potter-Zeltes ;-)
Meine Packwürfel passten super in den Rucksack, sodass ich alles super sortiert und organisiert im Rucksack verstauen konnte. Dadurch das man den Rucksack wie ein Koffer aufklappen kann, konnte ich mich bei jeder Gelegenheit ganz leicht am Rucksack bedienen ohne "rum-zuwühlen".
Die verschiedenen Ebenen machen es leicht Dinge so zu sortieren, dass man die Sachen, die man schnell erreichen muss immer leicht erreichbar nach vorne packt und die Kleidung die man am Flughafen eh nicht auspackt, eben ins hintere Fach packt.
Der Rucksack lässt sich bei meinen 1,63m hervorragend tragen, ich hatte keine Probleme. Zwei Gurte stabilisieren und können noch einmal kräftig komprimieren. Was mir daran besonders gefällt, sind die beiden kleinen Laschen, die verhindern, dass die Gurte außen herumbaumeln. Feinheiten, ich weiß. Aber eben eine Feinheit, an die gedacht wurde.
Am Ende meines Trips war der Rucksack so voll, dass ich Angst hatte, dass die Reißverschlüsse kaputt gehen würden... aber falsch gedacht. Der Rucksack hat alles mitgemacht! ALLES. Ich habe ihn als "koffer" abgegeben und er kam genauso wie er vorher war auch wieder raus. Man kann alle Schnallen und Gurte super verstecken und verstauen, so dass er an nichts hängen bleibt.
The different compartments were very helpful and the way the bag opens is ideal for easy access to belongings.
3 months of hauling through sometimes difficult conditions caused no visible wear and tear which was a big plus. Would suggest combining packing cubes to maximise space allocation and organisation on this My travelling companions often had larger baggage but I found that it was unnecessary and that the majority of places will have cheap and easy laundry facilities so there's no real need for more than a week of clothes. All in all, would highly recommend.
