    How to avoid a $20 delivery?

    •  

      Your guess is as good as mine. I haven't pulled the trigger yet just in case someone nifty finds a free shipping code

      If you find a free shipping code please share!

    Such a great bag. I have taken it on short day trips and 5 week o/s holidays. It fits easily in overhead compartments and the straps can be zipped away if you want to check it in. My interior was light green which made finding items easy. I payed $140 for mine from SOC.

      I too just returned from a 3 week o/s trip with this bag. Even used it for a 4 day trek in Nepal, it fits a lot for its volume.

        Nice one, I have also used it for long walks (not 4 days!), the straps are quite comfortable. My back gets super sweaty from the backing, but I realise it is not a trekking bag! (I just use it as one sometimes lol).

      •  

        Damn how did you go with it? Was this your primary bag? Currently planning a trip to the US for a festival and need to find a suitable bag for camping

  •  

    Anyone bought from these guys? Productreviews has some poor reviews…

    •  

      That's not good to hear. I haven't pulled the trigger yet myself. Will check it out after work tonight when I get home.

    •  

      I remember seeing someone else post a link to Cotsworld in the post from the Wiggle deal saying they bought it from Cotsworld - maybe flick them a message to see how they went.

    •  

      Used to be great a couple of years ago. No idea more recently.

    •  

      I’ve bought lots of stuff from them over the years. I can vouch for this company, great to deal with. Delivery will be around 2 weeks.

    •  

      Bought some things from them last year, decided to return a couple of items, had no problems.

    •  

      People only comment when they have issues. I think it's okay. Pay using paypal.

      Porter 46 is also pretty dam good, but I don't need another bag :(

      •  

        I also got a Porter 46 in 2015 for about 100$ and it's been great as an only (carry on) bag around Asia. Can fit a lot in and doesn't look overly big so avoid getting weighed most of the time. Overhead fine. Usually exceed weight before run out of space. Wouldn't mind if the front straps tied down more.

        Is the farpoint similar My Porter has a cut in the top where someone broke in. I wouldn't mind something like it but with sooner material and perhaps better organisation or another Pocket. Probably don't need another bag but would be nice.

        Not sure the difference between SM ML, guess the bigger one.

              @G-rig: Guess I was asking if it's better then the Osprey Porter. It feels a bit flimsy but lightweight.

              •  

                @G-rig: It's different (better is personal preference and needs).

                Harness on the Farpoint is better.

        •  

          They have similarities. The farpoint is better if you are walking around a lot but the porter is better for "travelling". Farpoint has back support but less compartments.

          I ended up getting the farpoint 40 since I'd be walking point to point.

          •  

            @Caped Baldy: Cheers for that, sounds like I don't really need one then, it's only mild walking between hotels/cities etc not for hiking. Would consider if the general quality was better and material of a higher quality.

    •  

      I wouldn't put any of them in a top 20! Compare a One Planet exact fit harness and you'll see why

    Even though website is .au domain you may be charged an international transaction fee?

      Yeah good point. I was going to transfer PayID to my ING card to negate the intl transaction fee.

    Anyone in Melbourne wanna group buy to split delivery cost?

        Damnit I bought it with tubbynara already :(

                @sg89: Have you guys bitten the bullet yet?

  •  

    Hi Everyone,

    Probably don't need (another) backpack, but is this one generally accepted as carry on?

    • +1 vote

      Yes, I’ve taken it on multiple domestic & international flights with no issues. It’s truly an awesome bag :)

      •  

        do you worry about weight limits or just confidently swagger on?

    •  

      Farpoint 40 was specifically sized to fit within the carry on limits.

      •  

        I think it fits everything except dash 8 qantas and atr virgin prop planes where they screw you down to 7kg carryon with reduced dimensions too. As long as you were ok for weight you'd probably get away with it too even if they measured because it's a soft bag.

        For domestic travel between major cities and most international you'd be fine unless you were over weight and got checked.

  •  

    Bought recently from the previous deal.

    Awesome travel bag.

    Currently travelling indefinitely overseas with this. Seriously perfectly maximised for r/onebag travel, with maximum dimensions acceptable for carry on. Could not recommend this more if you are serious about committing to travelling light efficiently, saving a bunch of cash on checked luggage in the process

      How much gear you packing clothing and the like? looking at it for a international trip to US for a 9 day trip

      • +1 vote

        I've got:
        - 3 pairs of underpants
        - 3 pairs of socks
        - 1 pair of jeans
        - 3 pairs of shorts
        - 3 T-shirts
        - 3 button up shirts
        - thermal tops/bottoms

        All fits comfortably into a packing cube, E.G. https://www.kathmandu.com.au/packing-cells-cases/medium-pack...

        Using the compression straps inside, you can apply pressure to compress the packing cube / clothes, and you're left with over half the capacity of the main compartment of the bag, comfortably. Much more a battle with weight limits than it is space. Washing as you go and the occasional laundry run makes it easy to not feel like you have to pack too much.

        Also, check out the Uniqlo Airism Mesh for the best travel underpants!

          Hello,

          I've tried the Uniqlo Airism Mesh underwear, but they ride up.

          Not much fun. Exofficio boxers are so much better, but also so much more expensive.

          •  

            @movieman: I got a size up and they fit really well on me. I see a lot of good stuff about the Exofficio stuff, but only the older models. On r/onebag, people rip into their recent stuff

    Anyone in Syd want to split the delivery costs?

    How does this bag compare?
    $50 cheaper

    38L and less than 800g in weight.

    Youtube has a few video reviews

      Depends on if you're walking much. Osprey bags are legendary for their back support. The farpoint has hip support so the weight goes there instead of your back.

  •  

    Will this fit a MacBook Pro 16" laptop? Considering getting one to wear while commuting daily via bike to work.
    If not, could anyone recommend a good, comfy commuter?

    •  

      Should avoid. The big compartment sits closer to your back and the laptop compartment (and weight) is further out.

      •  

        Avoided. Thank you.

    •  

      Osprey Radial is a great commuter. Hasn't missed a beat. I have the 26l version. Not sure if it would fit a 16" MBP though.

    how are these in comparison to Decathlon backpacks in terms of quality. Looking at a couple of models in Decathlon

      I have the porter 46 and can vouch for the quality.

  •  

    Awesome bag, very happy with mine. :)

  •  

    I ordered one of these before and then sold it second hand shortly afterwards. I can't remember exactly why - I think it was just a bit of an awkward bag to use as a backpack, it's more like baggage that you can put on your back.

    That said, I'm sorely tempted to buy it again! I'm travelling more these days and checked baggage is a nuisance both for the extra time it takes and the expense.

    Only thought is around weight…7kg isn't much for cabin baggage, but I guess I feel like it's pretty unlikely to get checked/inspected.

    •  

      7kg less 1.4kg for the bag. Most airlines you get 10kg carryon though which helps. A lot of Australian flights only 7kg though.

  •  

    So good. Used this bag on 10 week Europe trip (winter) 3 week Japan trip (summer), 6 week Europe trip (summer), 2 week NZ trip (summer) over the past 3 years. Still in perfect condition and carry on only is fantastic. So damn good.

    Had 10kg in all flights, over 15 flights in total (including Ryanair). Only got stung once from nz to Syd Jetstar after doing a prison style bag weighing. Stung $100. Stupid Jetstar. Europe couldn't give a crap about bag being 10kg

    •  

      If they did that to me, i've often thought about What id do in that scenario. I'd start by pulling out all the heavier pieces of clothing and things to wear on my person, then either dispose of heavier items worth less than the penalty. .ie: books, shoes etc.. Anything to give those pricks the satisfaction.

  •  

    Now out of stock I think? Deal no longer seems to be coming up

  •  

    If anyone changes their mind and wants to return, I'd be keen to take it off your hands.
