About this deal

Externally, there’s a simple harness and sternum strap to help with carrying loads and a pair of mesh pockets designed to hold water bottles for hikes. The harness is also much sturdier than the other Farpoints, making it much nicer to wear for longer periods of time. The main compartment features a couple of compression traps but no internal organization aside from a zippered mesh pocket on a flap. It also opens suitcase-style from the side and not from the top, so you can always access everything very easily. In the main compartment, there’s a mesh seperator which helps you keep clean and dirty kit apart, along with an ID card holder and key clip to keep your valuables safe and easy to access.

It’s also the bag I would have loved to use during my round-the-world travels or my backpacking trips in Central- and South America.

The good news is that the latest editions have reduced the differences between these two packs, making it a bit easier to choose. Zips on the main compartment are lockable with interlocking zip housings, again a useful feature if you’re travelling in pick-pocket hot spots or countries with a high crime rate. The Osprey Fairview 55 is a durable, multifunctional, lightweight travel backpack for those looking to be prepared for anything. The Osprey Fairview 55 is perfectly fine and comfortable when walking from the train station to the hostel, waiting for a cab, or performing any regular travel commuting that does not require you to walk with this bag for extended periods of time. You can use them for many types of trips, but they’ve always been a big hit with backpackers and adventure or budget travelers.

My Farpoint has been my trusty companion for years, and it’s held up incredibly well, even with daily use for my work commute. Durable fabrics in high wear areas combine with smart design to create a lightweight and durable travel pack that will last a lifetime. That is almost the largest carrying capacity in our test suite and the combo of that and its relatively low weight give it the best volume to weight ratio in our review. But the main pack is now carry-on size — in fact, it has the exact same dimensions as the Farpoint 40. This does not apply to any perishable goods, unsealed software or item personalised or made to your specification.The straps and the harness itself is top-quality, as you’d expect from the brand and the Osprey Fairview 55 comes with a sternum strap and hip belt to help keep the load exactly where it should be.
