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.
Whether traveling near or far, a comfortable pack means one less headache. We use decades of experience to ensure a comfortable, gender-specific fit for every adventure.

I own an Osprey pack and an Osprey rolling bag. This "pack" does not fit my 6"-4" 240lb frame. (no, I am not anywhere close to the presidential windbag "Flabby McGolftits"). It is very tight in a shirt, impossible without pain once I added a heavy shirt and a jacket.
The daypack is tiny, the "key" pocket is on the outside and cannot be secured, sponsored no doubt by pickpockets, and it is too small to carry a jacket and a sandwich.....just what a day pack is for.
It could use substantial improvements and would help if the design team had ever traveled internationally for longer than 14 days.
perfect for travel
Used this pack for a 2-week trip to Croatia. I was able to pack all of my stuff and use this as a carry-on once I disconnected the backpack, it wasn't as bulky. I checked the bag one time to maximize space and it was useful to have a quick disconnect with the included backpack. Highly recommend this pack since the straps store to make it easier for travel.
Best travel pack ever!
I love this pack. I've owned it for 6 years and in that time have taken it on extended abroad travels to Europe, Asia, and South America. It is excellent for plane and train travel given its strap stowage, and removable day pack. You can easily fit several weeks worth of clothing, etc. in its main pocket. It's much more user-friendly than a top-loader for international travel. I check the main pack and take the daypack as hand luggage. In a pinch I've checked both pieces together to accommodate an extra carry-on. Also it's one of the most durable packs I've ever owned. After most trips I run it through a 2 hour high heat dryer cycle at the laundromat to kill any bed bugs, and have also subjected it to two weeks in a -80C deep freezer. It's still going strong! With only one small hole (that I blame on the baggage handlers).
The college where I teach does a lot of study abroad travel with students around the globe. The Farpoint series is always my recommendation for students looking for a travel friendly way to go from train-to-trail. Great design and great construction!
Wonderful travel pack!
I love this travel pack! Easy to load, and using compression cubes can fit a TON of gear inside. The 20L detachable day pack is fantastic as well - laptop and everything I need access to to is at my fingertips. I have NOT had to check this bag on any of my trips...yet. By stowing the shoulder straps to make it look like a small duffel bag I have not had anyone ever question it going on board. Having said that, with small regional jets it would have to go as checked but any "normal" domestic flight and international flight has aways been easy to bring on board. Th only thing I would say is lacking is an easier way to carry the bag with the shoulder straps stowed away. Only option at that point is holding the handles - I have a Osprey 46L and it has the ability to use a single shoulder strap with a plastic loop at the top and bottom of the bag. Perhaps a minor complaint as I still love the bag and think it is perfect. I use the Farpoint 70L for trips 5-6+ weeks and the Osprey Porter 46L for anything less...
Versatility for Travel Worth the Price
My wife and I both got these for our honeymoon through Greece & Turkey. Having a backpack/travel bag/ and zip off day pack is and was perfect for the occasion. The pockets are well through through for the main bag as well as the zip-off pack. Both packs are comfortable and from a strap perspective. The main bag is very easy to load up and perfect zipper construction so you can grab something from the bottom of the pack without disrupting everything to get to it.
Nice job Osprey, I continue to be a fan!
Great, Easy to use Pack
I recently travelled to Europe for 2 weeks and stayed in hostels, hotels, AirBnb etc. I thought this pack was great! The pack seemed sturdy and I had no issues with zippers. It was very easy to pack compared to the top loading packs. The straps were fine but perhaps less comfortable compared to a traditional pack if you are doing long hikes. I liked that the straps were concealable & protectable for flights. I used the day pack for our day adventures and it was a perfect size for me. The day pack has 2 inside slots for valuables/tablet etc. The day pack attaches to the travel pack by zipper on the back of the bag which was useful. The day pack can also attach via clips to wear hands free on your front. This was particularly helpful at airports and train stations when I had both bags but didn't want to attach the day pack to the back of the travel pack as I needed easy access to the day pack.
Overall, I thought this pack was easy to use and I am happy with my choice of pack.
First Time Backpacker
Great for bigger trips
Bought two of these a couple years ago to backpack around Australia for a month with 2 kids. We now use them for everything. For just us we probably would have gone with the smaller 55 but the bigger size allowed us to cram their stuff in as well and it comes in handy when we're packing bulkier winter stuff. Each person has their own color of packing cubes so it was easy to have 2 people's worth of stuff in one bag. We've done at least 15 flights with them so far and they still look like new. My only complaint is the so-called water bottle mesh pockets on the day pack (although I notice that the new write-up doesn't mention them as such) . We've tried a few different bottles and none of them ever stay put so the bottles go inside. We also ended up buying rain covers.
