Update Anna, took myself there today, wouldn’t have went if you hadn’t replied. Bought 7 of the purses. Birthday gifts & a couple of Xmas ones. I also got a pair of Replay jeans for my son £3.75.Best of all got a Panama hat for me, £1.97. Cashier was showing other cashiers my buys. She was just about to have a break,,,guess where she was heading (lol) Thanks for the heads up X
Thanks for this, plenty in stock in Wembley Costco, brown and black colour
The .97 ending at Costco indicates clearance items.
I've got the Hikelite 18, has a frame so air circulates. Plenty of room for a day.
Paid and was notified on webpage that item was not in stock, however the email I received stated that the order is being processed. I guess we'll just have to see what happens
Which would you recommend the comfiest for day hikes? Don’t mind paying a little extra from this.. Been in store there’s so many to choose from! Ideally want the floating back mechanism (if that makes sense) & the waist pockets
Third Osprey, second one still in original packaging, unopened.
Amazing, thank you. Googled to no avail, probably using the wrong search terms. The back on these doesn’t seem to be adjustable, so I can understand why they come in different sizes
Here you go... there's even an app! Osprey Sizing Guide
Anyone able to explain to the uninitiated how the sizes work on these? Assuming the difference between S/M and M/L is in the spacing of the straps and padding or something. All the hiking packs I’ve had before have had adjustable backs. Love the look of this bag (although I wish it was the dark green that was this price) - but don’t want to end up buying something that’ll be ill-fitting just because it was a good price..
Great deal I've even seen these sell second hand for £60
Thanks frogman, I bought one. I already have the Farpoint 40, which I love, and I've seen the 80 in a store before
Received mine today. Quality bag...can't wait to test it out. Hope those who got one in time like it as much as I do.
Yeah, I already got the farpoint at the £40 mark and am wondering if this is also worth getting or whether to just stick with the Farpoint.
I was going to get the Fairpoint, but can't justify the price difference right now. I needed somehing quick, so ordered this. If the Fairview 40 goes on sale, I'll grab that too... Just got to be patient.

Yep I recall Cambodia being hot on security both in and out. I went in overland so queued for what seamed like a lifetime infrom Vietnam and then out into Thailand. I think my bag must have been dragged behind a luggage cart or trapped between a conveyer and a wall this was a camera battery changer and a titanium spork which became welded to it. I think this was inside yet another layer of bags. I think the air transporter would stand up to "normal" amounts of baggage handler abuse.
Man, I thought the Cambodians were rough with my bag but thats really something! On a side note I collected 5 stickers that trip saying my bag had been searched, my friends none. Gotta wonder where I went wrong!
I have one and it's mainly used when on flights and in transit where you have to put your rucksack in a hold or storage. It means that the likely hood of my rucksack straps being damaged is limited. It doesn't however mean that it's indestructible. Here's mine having suffered "a small amount of damage" at an Italian airport. The replacement has faired better so far. I did email Osprey to see if it was covered under their lifetime guarantee and they'd never seen something quite as abused. Just in case someone thinks I'm being negative about Osprey not at all they're great products and I replaced the Rucksack and Airporter with exactly the same models. Edit for ref I have a small for a 48l rucksack.
Had one, but you still need something to cover your pack in it - the gaps are big enough that you can reach right through. It was great to keep the bag secure when I was staying in hostels which didn't have lockers, but on it's own it drew way too much attention to the bag.
If you are after security then check here first https://pacsafe.com/collections/portable-safes-bag-protectors and then pack all in that cover.
We flew past the masses on the pre dawn hike up and soon found places to avoid the crowds, but the location was more impressive than the actual ruins for me. I've seen more impressive Mayan sites with way less people - Tikal, Tulum, Coba etc (even Chichen Itza when I timed it right) and effort and better views. I just found it way over hyped - I met an aweful lot of people who went to Peru or even to travel South America because they wanted to go there. Each to their own! As for the biking, I'd watch sunset and ride back in the dark, shower then straight into town for some food and a few beers! Overtaking tuk tuk's in the pre-dawn darkness to get me right at the front (tripod up and camera ready) to see the sun light up Ankor Wat was the most spectacular sunrise over a "sight" that I've had the privilege to witness. Uluru quite literally paled in comparison! But for now, I have to try not to burn through the money I squirrelled away for my next trip. At this rate, my son will be old enough to go with me!
I think I must have been lucky at Machu Pichu as for reasons unknown when I hiked up at dawn, normally a busy time, it was almost deserted. Sitting there as the sun rose over the ruins was utterly spectacular. That being said I have to agree that Angkor Wat does knock it into a cocked hat; albeit after three days on a bike I think I’d be in desperate need of a beer or twenty - the heat can be with gruelling!
The big advantage over the popular standard Fairview is the ventilated back system on this, much better in warmer climates, and the whole harness system seems better. I don't think you would regret buying it as a travel pack. The other woman's option for £57; amazon.co.uk/dp/B06VV8FVPT Can be used as hand luggage, it's 40lt not 50lt, but is a more basic pack compared to the Trek version.
I have one of their other packs this colour is hideous and wil end up with easy to see dirt marks that's probably why it's reduced
