Every traveller will have owned or seen an Osprey Farpoint travel pack on their travels. Osprey have now looked to capitalise on this and expand the range by introducing a wheeled version to their lineup.
One of the key things they have tried to do is offer wheels without adding too much weight, which is now so important with the restrictions placed by airlines. So even though this bag offers a whopping 65 litre of storage space it weighs just 2.8kg which is lighter than some of our traditional travel backpacks!
Keeping its travel backpack roots this bag has a large main compartment with U shaped opening which makes organising and packing really easy. Inside the lid of the main compartment are two zipped mesh compartments which is great for storing smaller items and travel accessories. Osprey’s packing cube set would also work great with this pack. There is also a compression system inside which helps shrink your luggage down or keep everything in place if it isn’t full. Externally it has more storage options include two mesh bottle pockets and two more zipped compartments for your kit. There are also additional lashing points for fixing more things if needed.
For pulling the bag along on its wheels there is a T-shaped towing handle which extends out at the touch of a button and is hidden away when not needed. The backpack straps also include a chest strap and hip belt for additional comfort and the suspended nature of the back system allows air to flow between you and the bag which is perfect for use in hot climates. All the straps can be easily hidden away with the zip over cover so it can be taken on flights and placed in coach storage without causing problems or damage. A grab handle on the top and sides makes it easy to pick up and carry over short distances such as when queuing at check in.
