Osprey Waypoint 80

Holy delinquency batman. I've actually been carrying this bag for 7 months now and finally am reviewing it. The short and sweet? It's a 65 liter main bag with a 15 liter zip off day pack (sweet!), and it's a luggage style backpack. No wheels, but it does have a compartment to zip away the back pack straps for easy shipping / storage. 

The Pros

  • suit case style / flat pack loading. That means no digging through the top zipper to get to the bottom.
  • multiple storage pockets line the main compartment. Think socks on one side, those precious budgy smugglers on the other and another compartment for small items (i.e. pack towel).
  • Easily adjustable and many different ways to adjust the comfort of the pack.
  • back pack straps zip into compartment for checking bag.
  • Day pack! Features a slot for your computer, and another area to place a tablet..but damn thats a lot of tech space!
  • Super tough zippers and pack
  • Lifetime warranty. Yes, any problem, just contact the wonderful people at Osprey and there you go!

The Cons

  • No built in rain cover
  • No hipstrap pockets (I'm a big fan of these...)
  • less rigid/supportive back support cage. (due to the luggage style, you lose a bit of the comfort)
  • No longer sold in stores.

Overall, Osprey is seen as one of, if not 'the' best, in the backpack industry. I get loads of questions and comments on my pack, and I've even had people take pictures of it for some reason.
