Osprey Farpoint 70 rucksack using new customer code

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I was looking for a new backpack for travelling and knew this was a good model as I had borrowed one before. They are usually £150 but have been discounted to £105 recently at Millets and Wiggle but last night Wiggle dropped it to £97.50 which is the cheapest it is anywhere and they have a code (NEWGB) for £10 off your first order too which makes it a bargain.

I can't get onto camelcamelcamel at the moment but I believe this is lower than the best price Amazon have ever had it for too.

Cheapest price on Amazon according to CCC is £92
I'm really after the 40l version of this as it is hand luggage compatible. Just saw they have it for £75 so £65 with code. Thats about the cheapest I've seen it.

I bought one second hand off ebay for £35 but what turned up was the 55 litre with detachable day pack, a pleasant surprise but it won't fit in the cabin bag sizers. Kept it anyway as it's a great bag!
Nice bag with a decent emblem you can where anywhere. Good deal but I wouldn't pay 1/2 this price (sorry!)

err to heat or not to heat - I'll stew on this one a while.
Oops, apparently I used a naughty word! Here's an edited version of what I said.....

I'm a bit of a rucksack fanatic, I have to say the 55l is one of the best made bags I've used. The guy I got it off used it for 6 months around asia and it shows very little signs of wear, I wouldn't bother at this price for a UK weekend trip but if travelling properly this is a good bag.

I need the 40l for an upcoming trip to Jordan, I'm going to wing it with accommodation so expect to have my bag on me frequently
hi guys can anyone recommend a 30 litre daysack as im doing a 16 day trek in nepal to everest base camp in march and honestly i havent a clue , plus im in the same scenario with what bag i need to get for the flight cargo hold , thank you

A lot will go on your height and weight, how much you think you'll be carrying? If it's to base camp I'm guessing plenty of layers, will porters carry your main gear?

Are there any restrictions on the bags for the porters?
Although I winter hike the highest I've gone is Snowdon, Everest base camp will be a bit different! What I find essential are side pockets for drinks that I can reach without removing the pack, on many it is not possible, although a bladder system may be a better option? Also bear in mind the kit you will carry, is one big compartment fine or are smaller ones better? Smaller is great if you need to know where certain stuff is, but you lose space as you never fill each compartment completely.

Do you have a kit list of what they advise you to carry?

I wish! No, it was a farpoint 55 that arrived. The 55 and the 70 have a detachable daypack on the front but do not meet hand luggage requirements, only the 40l does. Also bear in mind there are 2 sizes, with the smaller being 38l and the larger 40l. The main difference here is the fit, shorter people may find the 38l version more comfortable.

I also have a farpoint 55. I used it mainly as hang luggage for backpacking Asia, a lot of airlines around there didn't check too much for size. If they did check it was always only for the weight. When checking-in and board, I kept both bags disconnected and was fine most of the time.
Too big for cabin luggage, I used the Farpoint 40 earlier in the year on a trip to Thailand.

I had a Osprey Talon 18 Rucksack which is very good for a day pack for hiking, easy to get your water bottles from the side waist pounches.It also has a good back suspension system for carrying heaver loads

So the talon 33L would be a good choice at £70 with the NEWGB code and new account. But have a look on ebay first as i have bought some new osprey packs with tags before £30+ cheaper than retail stores.There's also many more options from osprey.

General Clothing & Equipment
Remember that if your kitbag weighs 2kg you will have 2kg less for your kit, so bear that in mind when buying a bag. DA kitbags are light and sturdy and perfect for this trip! Also remember that the combined weight limit is 15kg for the internal flight, but you will be wearing your trekking clothing / boots and down jacket. Every ounce counts and your kit can multi task too! As a treat on this trek you will be able to have kit washed for a small cost in Namche
Expedition kit bag for main luggage and padlock plus a small bag or sack for the hotel
To carry all of your kit to Nepal (airline weight limit is usually 20kg / 44lbs) and is carried between tea houses by porters – weight limit applies (see below) You will not be able to access it during the day. Soft-sided luggage essential. Bring an additional small bag or sack for your clothes which stay at the hotel during your trek

hope this helps buddy
Ordered for myself for a 7 week trip to the Far East. May order another for my wife depending on size or maybe the 55 litre.
