Size

Osprey Farpoint 40

(1/2)

If you can't fit everything you want in there though, then it's a difficult decision. Sizing up to the Stratos 36L is doable but you'll need to check the bag as it's too long to fit in the overhead. Maybe you can get away with carrying it on but you would be taking a risk of the attendants telling you it needs to checked.

Zipper

Osprey Farpoint 40

(1/2)

The zipper never failed, but if it did the pack would be useless. Another big con is that the footprint to access it is much larger than a top loader. you have to have space to lay out the bag and then open it. Doesn't seem like an annoyance, but it has its moments

Laptop

Osprey Farpoint 40

(1/2)

It makes weight distribution awkward and also when the bag is full the laptop will have pressure put on it and chance of it breaking. Poor design. Osprey needs fo fix that feature. 2

Compartment

Osprey Farpoint 40

(1/1)

This bag has a laptop compartment on the back, i.e., posterior if you're speaking anatomically. I was most concerned about the placement of this laptop sleeve/compartment as other reviewers have mentioned

Strap

Osprey Farpoint 40

(1/1)

The compression straps do a great job not only keeping everything in place, but also adding a layer of security. The exterior straps are mounted by another layer of ripstop fabric that encases all the zippers, making them difficult to locate and access while strapped down tightly. This costs you a couple seconds and extra effort if you need to get into the bag while you're on the go, but there is no way for someone to easily get into the bag while out of sight on your back without you knowing. The zippers are paired, so you can lock them with a small padlock if that's your thing
