That's a lot of money to lug stuff around in. Carrier bags from supermarkets are only 5p. Go up a gear and bags for life are 20p - save money man!

These are great packs, really well designed - if it's not for you why bother posting pointless comments like this?
Got one of these and it is superb - well worth the money. Superbly built, really comfortable and well designed. The zip off bag is small but fits 4 microfibre towels, 4 kindles, underwear and two bottles of suncream. And has room to fit a bottle of water - a perfect beach bag. You may think it is expensive but trust me it is worth every penny. Heated.

Why, 'cos it is a free country!
Does this come with the aim controller?
Took a 40L Osprey backpacking around SE Asia for 6 months, and it was still like new when I came home. I've since started taking a small cabin suitcase with me instead of backpacks when I go 'backpacking' as I think they're more practical (I'd rather be rolling 20lb of stuff with me rather than having it on my back).

On a side note, I think 70L is far too big. If you fill it, then you're packing too much stuff.
Welcome tot he site @Adam_Jsnr Great first post
Seems very expensive for a basic, albeit large, nylon rucksack.
Do the straps in these things have a tendency to rip/tear at one or both shoulder's too? (like the majority/pretty much all backpack's), after a while also?.

As it would be an uncomfortable hole in the pocket, if it didn't last the distance against that of much cheaper alternatives (though arguably not as well built, etc), for example?.

Or is there a bigger picture I'm missing here?.

Genuine question.
Both my girlfriend and I have these, travelled the world for 9 months with them, excellent quality and still going strong.

Here’s an overview and how we packed them:

This is the perennial argument. I think it comes down to what you are comfortable carrying. I prefer to have options, so on all journeys have gone for 70l. The detachable day pack can be clipped onto to your front which also helps.

I bought mine because my girlfriend loves hers. She has used it extensively and still looks brand new. Straps have no sign of fraying.

I think this is a good size, 57lt main pack and 13lt small rucksack. It you think, you'd pay £20-30 for a small pack anyway, so this effectively makes the main pack a little cheaper.. You can get a Berghaus 60lt travel pack for £60 but this is nicer, if you bought the Berghaus, you'd just end up wishing you'd spent a bit more for the Osprey.
Personally, most of the time I wouldn't put the small pack on the back in a crowded environment for fear of someone getting in.

What would you recommend for extensive/lengthy travelling?

Had my osprey farpoint for going on 4 years. Still in the same condition as the day I bought it. These things are not basic

It's very much a personal preference depending on what you're carrying. This is useful in the sense that it's really a 55l + detached 15l backpack but it still seems expensive for what it is.

...only on HUKD do you file a huge group (perhaps the majority?) of people that seem to believe exclusively that cheaper is better.

Osprey backpacks are fantastic quality and design - and that quality and design comes with a higher price point.

This is a great discount from that price point - if I wanted a 70l pack I’d grab one.
People making terrible, ill-informed, basic jokes about the price. This is incredibly cheap for something of this quality.

HUKD - YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR (and you should know this). Were here for the deal not the cheapest alternative. Good things still cost, its all about getting them as low as possible, not buying the cheapest crap.

Get some standards you scrounger cheapos!

Amazing find OP, I just splashed on Stussy one recently (full price (shock)) otherwise Id purchase this in heartbeat. Extra hot hot hot

Osprey is a highly regarded brand known for its quality and the longevity of its products. Highly superior outdoor products compared to most others. Since the time of currency....YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

This pack wouldn't be my first choice, but it's a decent price for an Osprey, which will last way longer than cheaper packs.

Thanks and yes I was joking. Unfortunately, you do get people on here with the mentality of the cheap (and nasty) over quality and I thought I'd get the comment in first.

I do own 3 rucksacks including 70ltr (which I do fill when going out on landscape photographic trips) which was half the price of this but is still looking good and is comfortable. I'd never buy the same make now as they have been taken over by a certain fashion sports shop. I'll have to take users advice on this as I've never tried it.

Still overpriced though. You're paying for the advertising and marketing like the Swiss Gear bags in the laptop market.
The people voting this cold have no idea how good Osprey rucksacks are. My Nebula bag has lasted me 3 years, travelled across 6 flights and still shows no sign of wear and tear. Great quality and a great price.
It's always good to get buyers recommendations...There's an element of you get what you pay for...not always true though.
Great deal. I love Osprey bags so much, it becomes an addiction. Got the 40L Fairview (female version of the Farpoint) and has done me well so far. They also retain their value very well. I sold my old 40L Farpoint for near the asking price. Customer service and lifetime warranty is also outstanding.

Absolutely. It makes perfect sense to want evidence to justify spending £90 on a backpack, however that isn't the same thing as the people who haven't got any experience of the product making pointless comments about how you can buy a backpack for £10.
I still have one in amazing condition that is 12 years old. I lived out of it for almost two years! No signs of ripping. Love my pack.

6 flights is your idea of durability? I've got an 8 year old Wilson sports backpack that I spent 12 months travelling around the world with, that's seen over a hundred journeys, been thrown around, kicked around, been slept on, been up mountains, in forests, dunked in rivers and absolutely nothing on it has broken, ripped or torn. Cost me £30.

If you think this is a free country you don't know politics.
Thanks OP.
Having gone on a 2 week trip around Vietnam last year, I now realise that cheap is definitely not worth it. I purchased one from eBay for £30 and within a week, it was falling apart.
This should hopefully do me just fine as am away for 3 weeks this summer.

I would recommend anyone going travelling to get one of these, its a full bag, not just a raincover, saves your bag getting covered in who knows what on a bus or train.
