Overall,, it's a great bag! It looks good, it's light weight enough. It has zippers you can run a TSA-approed or similar lock through it. The daypack is great and has a good laptop sleeve that comfortably holds my 15 (plus) inch laptop. The daypack is also textured inside and is a bright green color, as is the interior of of the main pack.
This type of combo bag is what I needed, for staying in hostels especially, so I can easily store my luggage in the main pack and lock it away or leave it on or under my bed, but can bring my pack with laptop (Macbook Air, lightweight for travel), camera, some food, etc., and not worry about leaving valuables behind. It's great to have just one bag to carry from planes, trains, and automobiles, yet containing the option of having two different function bags to use simultaneously once arrived at my destination(s).
The only reason I didn't end up keeping it is I still wanted something larger, not because I needed more space to get by for a 70 day European travel trip, but because I wanted more space to bring things back home as souvenirs or for memories, as this trip is my first time going. This could easily be overkill, too, as the 80 with a piggy bag is MUCH larger than this bag. But having more space to pack for travel doesn't mean (for me) that I'll pack more things, it just means I'll come back with more (lightweight keepsakes, which I'm very much OK with, and look forward to! For a more seasoned traveler or a dedicated minimalist, you can easily pack away in this for as long a journey as you need--just wash your clothes and consider some packing cubes or some method to organize and/or compress your items and clothing.
Ultimately I chose the 80, with a Quasar to piggyback as I really didn't like the Daylite Plus. But I think the 70 is great and Osprey quality speaks for itself, so I don't need to improve upon that, here.
I would not recommend this backpack for hiking, as standing and moving about airport lines got a bit uncomfortable (based on using the similar Farpoint 40 bag fully loaded to the brim), but could be great for large loads as you do city travel (think transfers from plane, train, taxi to hotel), esp. if you have to move fast to catch your flight.
The Farpoint 70 is the same height and width as the Farpoint 55, but the 70 has more depth to it, think more room to layer items. The attached daypack seems like it could be a great use. But, this backpack was just too large for my needs and I had to return it before really testing it outside my house. Check out my full review of the smaller, and carry-on capable Farpoint 40 for more details.
