About this deal

A removable 13L daypack can be clipped in our out, giving you versatile storage and the option to leave your bulky kit back at base while you head off and explore.

Double mesh pockets on the front of the bag allow you to access your water bottle or earphones in the blink of an eye. The day bag is great on many levels but it is not perfect so I will talk about it in more detail a little later on. The manufacture of sustainable products is characterised by the reduction or elimination of harmful chemicals. It has a total capacity of 55L, but you have to keep in mind that it’s a total of 42L of main bag and 13L (in the women’s version) of a day bag. We’re yet to get our hands on the Osprey Fairview 55, however, we have had 5 months of testing in South East Asia with the Farpoint 70 with the pair sharing plenty of similarities.

If we separate and set the daypack to one side for just a second and focus on the main pack, it’s evident that this isn’t your typical backpack.

As a beginner/intermediate backpack, the Osprey Fairview 55 is the best of both worlds, containing both a great sized main compartment with the useful 13L daypack. While the Farpoint has a stiff outer rim on the back, the walls don’t really stand up when it’s empty, so it’s a more flexible pack. Although the Farpoint/Fairview series isn’t necessarily designed for hiking, they are comfortable enough to take on hikes during your travels.However, in practice, the daypacks mesh pockets and rendered useless when the pack has just about anything in it so you may be best off carrying that water bottle than risking a spillage on the inside. To measure your torso length, locate your C7 vertebrae (the knobbly bump at the base of your neck), then locate the iliac crest (the very top of your hip bones). I’ll also tell you how I think it compares to other editions, like the Farpoint 40, the Farpoint 55 Trek, or the Farpoint 70. I’m currently using the Osprey Farpoint, the male version of the Fairview 55, and I share your sentiments about its durability. After testing the Farpoint 70 on the road for 5 months, we can safely say that the series can take anything you can throw at them!

I guess it’s supposed to be sleek and with the ability to attach a day bag to it, extra pockets would be in the way, so it makes sense. But nothing broke, nothing ripped, there are no holes and the zippers are still in perfect condition. The New Fairview uses Bluesign approved 450D recycled twist dobby polyester throughout the whole of the bag rather than the two different materials of the previous model. This criterion includes products with materials made from already used ingredients that have been processed into new fabrics. Fully loaded my Osprey is around 10KG which is over the baggage weight limits on most budget carriers.We absolutely adore the idea of the removable daypack, but Osprey's execution could use a little work. Also, if you love having multiple pockets and storage options, this bag probably is not for you either. So you are looking for your perfect travel backpack and wondering if the Osprey Fairview 55 is a good choice? A mesh back panel improves ventilation and the mesh on harness and waist belt reduces friction under load.

But the main pack is now carry-on size — in fact, it has the exact same dimensions as the Farpoint 40. If you don’t want to use the daypack on its own, you can leave it attached to the main bag for additional packing space. However if you could only just fit your gear into the old main bag you will now have to take less or get used to using the daypack for gear storage not just excursions.For this reason, if you like the look of this bag I think getting a Fairview/Farpoint 40 would make more sense. Ideal for longer travels, the Osprey Fairview 55 can be carried like a backpack but packed like a suitcase, and has a smaller detachable daysack that's the perfect companion for city exploring while you leave your main pack at the hostel.
