To travel as a couple we got the Farpoint and Fairview 40. Super easy to pack. The support structure spreads the weight out so effectively they're very comfortable. Others talked about the laptop sleeve being problematic but we don't take one with us so I can't speak to that. Also we didn't experience the water bottle difficulties others did. We put the bottle of the water bottle in the mesh and ran the compression strap through the top of the bottle and it worked very well. The only downside we saw was that the material on the back keeps you pretty warm and sweaty backs are frequent- but I think that's true of most packs. Love these backpacks! We're excited to keep using them.
