From the manufacturer
Since Osprey’s founding in 1974, every single product design bearing the Osprey name has passed through the hands of owner and founder Mike Pfotenhauer, undergoing relentless scrutiny. From stitching the first lines of custom-fitted packs, to meticulously designing innovative products with intuitive features, to forging personal relationships with the sewing operators who construct the packs, Mike has been the unbreakable thread that makes Osprey a top company.

From the streets of Buenos Aires to the foothills of the Andes, Osprey’s Farpoint 70 is ready for anything. Go ahead and fill it up with heavy mountain gear. 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. 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, StraightJacket compression straps stabilize the load. The main Farpoint 70 pack comes with a detachable Farpoint day pack, perfect for use on trips to the local market or to recon your route from the high ridge above base camp.

Cons: I wish there is more zippered pockets for the day pack or make the existing pocket deeper.
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.
sleeping bag straps and mini pack straps served many functions. mostly carrying my towel and poncho.
Comfortable, durable and the right size. I do kind of wish I got the larger one SANS mini pack and just used a separate pack for days. Zipping on the little pack makes it far too fat. I hung the little pack on my chest for best comfort. not quite worth rating it 4 stars

I don't find the daypack that useful as I carry a handbag day-to-day so only use it on long bus journeys, which it's just a little too small for. When I'm next in the UK I plan to switch it for a larger backpack that's a little more stylish. If it's possible to purchase without the daypack that would have probably been better for me.
