    Brilliant backpacks, had one a few years now and gone on several trips carry-on only… just superb.

    I paid $135 for this in 2017 and it's an excellent backpack for travelling. Comfortable good quality. perfect for cheap flights with no checked baggage.

      Better than Kathmandu?

      My Buckle just exploded and they've yet to replace/fix the buckle for the last 6 months :(

      •  

        Experience the paradise that is Osprey's lifetime warranty.

        I use both. Nothing wrong with Kathmandu backpacks - from my own long use I'd strongly argue some Kathmandu packs (comparable in litres + function) are definitely lighter, better organised (I have no idea why osprey put their laptops in the front to bend from packing pressure), have a superior/comfortable harness, and fit to the body's profile better (ie slimmer/doesn't take out half a shop when you turn around - eg when full the farpoint is considered quite dorsally obtrusive compared to many travel packs of today).

        In saying that, once you buy Kathmandu's gear you're on your own, it's a gamble. With osprey, there is no doubt, they are very honourable.

    I can't speak to this pack, but I can highly recommend Osprey. I have 5 packs of various sizes.

    Other than the quality, another great thing about osprey is that they will repair your case/bag or send you replacement parts at no cost.

    Ive broken a number of buckles, and zip pulls, and lost a sternum strap (on separate occasions) and they've all be sent out to a me at no charge.

    Hmm. I can't decide betewen this farpoint 40 and porter 46. Anybody have them or have opinions?

    • +2 votes

      I second this, need some opinions/comparisons between the 2. I was going to purchase one 18 months ago but couldn’t decide between the Farpoint 40 or the Porter 46. In the end I still haven’t got one!

      • +1 vote

        The 46l will likely be too large for overhead luggage if that is a consideration.

        • +1 vote

          I have taken the Porter as carry on (without checked) on multiple flights both international and domestic.

          •  

            @bananabendera: You may well have passed it off as carryon but I think it exceeds the maximum measurements (without compression) for carryon in Australia which leaves you at the mercy of the airline staff. I would choose the Farpoint because it falls within most airlines’ definitions of carry on. With a bit of discipline and some careful selection your back will thank you and you’ll be that much more mobile. And I know some budget airlines are becoming stricter about enforcing weight and dimension limits.

            • +1 vote

              @pupdog: We have flown hundreds of flights with the porter, all budget airlines in various countries not once was it checked for dimensions. even if it was checked it still fits in the bag tester as it's a soft bag.

        • +5 votes

          Maybe, but I've taken the 46L on at least 20 flights in Australia, plus more international flights and budget European carriers like Ryanair and easyjet. Not once have I ever been pulled up for it being oversize.

          •  

            @EFC94: Just wait till the time that they do though…

        • +1 vote

          I have taken literally hundreds of flights on budget airlines in Australia with my porter 46 and never had a problem.
          I even used to put it under the seat in front of me. Then I realised this does not get me off the plane any faster so I just use overhead every time now. As I pack it it's way smaller than all those roller cases everyone seems to use now.

          Granted I'm careful to not pack it solid (7kg carry on limit) but you shouldn't ever have a problem with the porter 46 as carry on, anything you can carry that keeps it under 7kg won't be solid enough that it doesn't compress to within the required dimensions (if it was even over to begin with).

          That said, I've never ever had it checked for dimensions by staff (have checked it myself before in the bag checkers when I first got it, just to verify the claims that it fits) but get weighed every flight that I don't have a tag from the previous one, and lately quite often even when I do have a tag.

          Meanwhile you can absolutely jam it with gear when you're not flying somewhere, which is a bonus.

          My only complaint is where the laptop sleeve is, I'd have preferred it closer to my back, but it's still the best bag I own by a long shot, the other being a Burton snowboarding pack.

      • +3 votes

        I'm just going for this. If you google a bunch, opinions are divided. I think it depends on use case and whether that 6L really makes a difference to you. If it's your only pack for long trips then the porter makes more sense. I rarely take just a carryon anywhere I go so this might help us condense our carryon crap into one.

        •  

          It would come down to your use of compression straps and the eye of the operator.

    • +7 votes

      I have the farpoint, due to the better straps which make it more comfortable if you plan on doing extended hikes/walks with it. If it's to be used only as carry on and to/from hotels, I recommend the porter as it fits a bit more and compresses better for the size.
      I have used my farpoint 40 on 3 day hikes covering 40+km, 12 days in Japan as my only bag and it performed flawlessly so I can highly recommend this bag if you plan on using this pack on your back for extended periods.

      •  

        Cheers, this is handy to know. I don’t do a lot of flying. It would be mostly used for hiking. Sounds like this would be better suited to my needs.

    •  

      I have the farpoint and from what i remember during my research is that the farpoint has a frame for sturdy support on the back whereas the porter didn't.

      Farpoint is a great bag and i highly recommend it.

      Ive used it as a carry on only to nz and hong kong and had no issues. Only fault I can think of is the water bottle holder is useless if your bag is full.

    •  

      I was looking at the 2 as well and decided on farpoint 40 because the porter 46 looks like a big turtle shell on your bac - Still waiting on a sale on the grey one though.
      The Porter's Laptop sleeve is closer to your back where the farpoint has the laptop sleeve on the outer pocket which may be a deciding factor if you travel with a laptop.

    • +1 vote

      I have the porter 46, I have used it many times as carryon quite bulky, had a few eyeballs but never pulled up. technically it exceeds the limit. Even though the 46 exceeds the limit measurement wise, it is soft so you could jam and squish it to comply…personal preference I guess..

    • +2 votes

      I only have the Porter 46 so I'll comment on that.

      I love it so much! Because of this backpack I do all my trips non-checked luggage now. It's so much better for transfers, and everything is faster, checking in and arriving airports (no waiting for checked luggage).

      Reading the comments above, just echoing that I've never been pulled up on any domestic or international flight before. Always use the straps to sinch it in as much as possible though! I love the porter for maximum storage/packing without checking in luggage. If that is your aim, 100% porter. If comfort, hiking and long distances, it sounds like the farpoint is better.

      Good luck choosing!

    Would this be suitable as a day pack on holiday?

    •  

      I suppose you could use it that way but I don’t think it’d be ideal. It’s big for a daypack and there’s gonna be a lot of empty space flapping about. If you wanna go carry on only, I suggest packing an ultralight (packable) daypack which as the name suggests is light and takes up little room.

    •  

      You could, but I wouldn't recommend it for that.

    I'm a massive Osprey fan. I have 3 of their packs including this one. The quality is top notch and the life time warranty is awesome.

    From what I've read this bag is the biggest size you can have for carry on. I've used it on loads of overseas and domestic trips of all sorts (currently im over in Java). My girlfriend bought the fairview (the female farpoint) and loves it. My brother is always bugging me to borrow my bag when he goes overseas too. He's since bought his own one.

    Buy the bag, especially at this price. You won't regret it.

    Only advice, the colours dont exactly match their online images. I'd look in store to see which colours you like best.

    I have several osprey packs. Being a travel pack, the harness will be very basic and only designed for carrying it to the airport / to your hotel. I also question you will meet weight requirements for hand luggage with 40L.

    •  

      Let me clarify. Fully filled it may go over 7kg carry on. So just be careful when packing if that is your intention. Also the zip away harness is not as comfortable as the dedicated walking harnesses, but that goes for ALL travel packs not just this model. If you are not intending on doing big hikes with it, it will be fine for the task.

  • +1 vote

    I have the fairview 40 (womens version, XS) and it's great for carry on. More space than you need before you run out of kgs anyway for 7kg carry on. But then enough space to pack everything back into the pack after you're away from the airport.

        I'm 162cm, but have a very short torso, so needed the XS.
        I'm not sure I looked stupid, or great, but it's just a transit pack, so I didn't really care, as long as it does the job!
        The green is a really nice colour btw.

    I just paid about $180 for one about a month ago but I did it because all my research pointed to this one being the best backpack for travel. And it is.

    I've been using the Farpoint 55 since 2016 and its been on 20+ or so flights through Aus and overseas as carry-on.

    Have had some run ins with some airlines trying to get me to check it in last minute however due to the removable day pack it will fit carry on.

    Just remove the day pack and have it stowed underneath when seated.

    Love the design and layout of osprey backpacks but their colour options suck. Just look at the only alternative frog pond green on the manta.

    Their red packs are hard to buy online. The reds across their line always appears differently in real life. More often than not, more brighter and moves towards the orange spectrum rather than maroon.

    Black gets boring after a while and other colours have stopped me from buying several osprey packs in the past.

    • +1 vote

      I took some travel advice not to get black because everyone has black so it makes it hard to spot if it is on the luggage belt or transport compartment because it looks the same as everyone else's but if your bag is bright red then you can see it immediately cos it stands out.

      •  

        Tie a bright coloured ribbon around the carry handle and you'll be fine

  •  

    Just can't bring myself in getting the red one, with the grey you can discreetly walk past airline staff without sticking out like a sore thumb, can get on ebay for $150 delivered.

        Agreed though some argue it makes you a target for thieves and overzealous airline staff which may also be a possibility.

        •  

          How would the colour of your bag do that?

          •  

            @sirlothie: I guess red is more interesting than endless black and grey bags - your bag looks interesting, you might be singled out. Your bag is red, it's different, its eye-catching. That might make an airline staffer notice you, then they notice your bag looks close to the limit and they decide to check. Of course you might be within the limits or they might be checking everyone, but if they pick based on discretion they might be more likely to pick you. Whether this is the case or not who knows, but I imagine that's what people are getting at.
