Product description

Osprey’s Farpoint 55 is the perfect companion for a long weekend. Feel free to add an extra sweater and a pair of waterproof boots; this pack is designed to handle loads up to 50 pounds. The LightWire frame suspension transfers the load from harness to hipbelt. A mesh backpanel improves ventilation and the mesh on the harness and hipbelt reduces chafing under load. The entire suspension stows away under a zippered panel creating a sleek silhouette for transport. 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. The main Farpoint 55 pack comes with a detachable Farpoint daypack to carry the essential for a hike in the hills or an excursion downtown. No matter where you go, the Farpoint is backed by Osprey's All Mighty Guarantee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Settling the Overhead Bin Debate & Comparing the Two Sizes
By Ryan Harvey on November 23, 2017
Settling the Overhead Bin Debate

If you are like I was before purchasing this bag, you weren't sure how to settle the debate in these reviews about whether the bag fits in the overhead bin on an airline. Most reviews say that it will fit, but some say that it won't. To complicate matters, the bag comes in two sizes, and the S/M is one inch shorter than the M/L. Does the S/M fit and the M/L not fit?

I own the larger size, labeled "M/L."

I can say definitively that the M/L size DOES fit in the overhead bins on both Southwest and Alaska. It fits perfectly, with no need to mash or mangle it. The attached picture is from an Alaska Airlines flight. My bag is the one on the far left. To be clear, I removed the front day pack before placing the bag into the bin. I think that you would need to if your bag is full. You could get away with having it attached if not.

Your mileage may vary with other airlines.


I have also flown internationally with this bag (the M/L) as a carryon, in China Eastern’s and Delta’s widebody 767. In both cases the bag would not fit (barely!) put into the bin perpendicular, like in my attached picture. But it did fit sideways into the drop-down bin above the center seats. The flight attendants did not care in either case, but I can see how they might.

For this reason I have now purchased the S/M size. It’s the black one in the other picture and will unequivocally fit in every bin. I think it’s 1-2 inches shorter, and the front daypack seems the same size. By selecting the smaller size, you lose 180 cubic inches of space. That sounds like a lot but it is the equivalent of a cube with sides that are about 5 and a half inches long. That’s about three pairs of socks, which to me is worth giving up to make sure that I can always carry the bag on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the investment!
By Trenton Johnson on April 23, 2016
I can't praise this backpack enough. My wife and I purchased 2 of them for our 3 week trip to Europe in 2014, and absolutely loved them. We actually ordered the Farpoint 40, but were shipped the Farpoint 55. We decided to keep the packs instead of exchanging them, and I'm glad we kept them.
Technically, the main pack doesn't meet the maximum size requirements for most airlines. In practice though, the pack fits every overhead bin that I've tested it in, and it looks 'squishy' enough that the airline staff have never challenged me on it. I've taken it succesfully as a carryon on American Airlines, United Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, and Alaska Airlines.
Our 2014 trip was 4 weeks long total, and these two packs were all the luggage that we took. The main packs were large enough for our luggage, and the detachable daypacks were the perfect size for everything we needed to keep with us each day (camera, jacket, passports, wallet, etc).

I was initially surprised at how lightweight the nylon fabric feels, but they have held up amazingly well. The fabric doesn't scuff or show marks, and it isn't snag-prone. It's certainly not waterproof, but we found it to be water-resistant enough to handle a light rain shower just fine. One of the seams on my wife's daypack shoulder strap did eventually let go, but we contacted Osprey and they repaired it for free with no hassle. They definitely stand behind their product!

I have three small frustrations with the pack--
--The water bottle pockets on the daypack exterior are not nearly large or stretchy enough. They work, but good luck getting a bottle in there if the pack is stuffed full.
--The zip-away strap cover panel on the main pack is difficult to stow away when you want to use the main pack should/waist straps. You have to roll it down to the bottom, and then stuff it into a little velcro area. It never fits quite right, and always feels like it might come popping back out. It never has actually popped out, but I wish they would redesign the closer on this.
--The frame is just about an inch too large to 'officially' qualify as a carryon. Come on, guys! Just shrink the frame by an inch, and everything would be kosher! I called Osprey on the phone, and one of their product designers said they're working on a similar concept--hopefully they get this sorted out. We've never had an issue, but why not just shrink the frame a little to be safe?

Conclusion: Buy it, you certainly won't regret it. The quality you will receive is well worth the price tag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pack!!
By Adam Dittmer on April 26, 2016
A week after my awesome trip to Thailand I felt it was my duty to give credit where it is due, and this bag deserves a lot of praise! The detatchable daypack really provided me with a sense of security during my trip, allowing me to have my important documents (in waterproof housing) with me at all times being that I was staying mostly in hostels with little security. Yet the pack was durable and light weight enough that it didn't become a nuisance or something to worry about. I was in Thailand during Songkran Festival, the local New Year which has turned into the biggest water fight in the world, spanning 3 days! The material of this pack is slightly water resistant and did defend my clothes from getting wet from small amounts of water thrown on it for a short period during transit. The extreme heat of Thailand probably was to thank for that as well though lol. My day pack did end up getting soaked through at one point and quickly dried out for the next days use! I cannot recommend this pack enough for its versatility and durability, alone!

Another thing I wanted to touch on was the ability to use this pack as a carry on while flying. I have seen a lot of debate about the issue and while I cannot speak for all airlines, the two Asian companies I flew with never even gave my pack a 2nd look! I flew with EVA Air and Air Asia and the M/L pack fit just fine in each compartment. I did keep the day pack on me as my hand luggage. (see picture)

Hope this helps!
