Has taken me around the world with ease
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've used my Farpoint for many years for International and Domestic travel and it's still going strong. The hideaway backpack straps are great for checking it and it converts back to a backpack quickly and easily. The internal frame helps it keep its shape and, along with the hip belt, makes carrying even heavy loads comfortable.
The 70 and 55 also come with a detachable daypack. The 80 has loops to anchor an optional Osprey Daylite daypack.
What's the frame difference for S/M vs. M/L??? Looking for a mid-range bpack to take up Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu. Have to be volume conscious because of transportation rules up there from Cusco.
