Comfort

Osprey Farpoint 40
Just...perfect
Got this for our European trip...while that has since been cancelled, I did load this backpack up and wear it for 1/2 the day at home just to make sure it would be comfortable for long trips. I fell in love with this backpack and would highly recommend it. I'm looking forward to our trip (hopefully ...

Patagonia Nine Trails 26L Pack - Women's
Amazing Pack
I just bought this pack a couple of weeks ago. I used it for day hikes while on vacation in Colorado for a week. It was extremely comfortable. I never had a problem with the straps digging in to me. I put it on, adjusted the straps and it was perfect. It held everything I needed for the day, includi...

Hiking

Osprey Farpoint 40
7 Months Backpacking - Great Quality
I spent 7 months backpacking with this backpack - through the Himalayas, strapped to motorcycles, across beaches, and more. It looks almost new. The zippers are great quality, the straps are comfortable, and the storage layout is perfect. The zippers lock, there are water bottle pouches, you can han...

Patagonia Nine Trails 26L Pack - Women's
Takes some adjustment
So, I got this pack when I saw it was on sale. Not the best reason, I know. I was in search of a pack with a bit of room and could manage a 3L water bladder for longer mountain treks over the summer and this fit the bill.
Not only is it able to hold the 3L bladder, it also has an absolute ton of...

Size

Osprey Farpoint 40
This is one of the reasons why I check my bag (Osprey Farpoint 40 or cabin sized roller) if the airline offers it. Within Europe for example Ryanair either offers priority boarding (personal item and carry on) or a 10kg checked bag. Since the prices are essentially the same, I'll usually stick with the 10kg bag, unless I know I'll be in a hurry. Also I'll check my carry on if the airline offers it at check in or at the gate.

- Mesh front and side pockets
- Cinches down
- Hip belt with pocket
Things I didn't like:
- Pack was smaller than what I need. 35-40L wo...

Strap

Osprey Farpoint 40
Great pack
Great pack for traveling. This is a very convenient back pack for on the go. Way better than pulling a roller suit case or a duffel bag. I can pack about a week’s worth of clothes and still have enough room for other items. Great weight distribution when you adjust your straps and clip em in. The st...
