Have owned this backpack for a year and taken it on several multi-day backpacking trips in VA and MD. Am taking it to Philmont in a few weeks. I really like the pack in terms of weight and style. The only drawback of this pack is that the pocket for the water bladder is inside the main compartment of the pack---so if your water bladder leaks it can make the inside of you pack (and any unprotected stuff in there) wet. With this design the water bladder also takes up valuable pack space.

Best cross over bag for a female...this is such a great bag! This bag is just the right size for everyday to and from work and yet I can pack for an overnight stay as well. The strap is super comfy and and all the pockets are great! I highly recommend this bag!

Look no further, for you have found your next backpack. I was in need of a new backpack before going to Spain. I have gone through 2 North Face backpacks in the past 8 years and decided I want something better and different. I am familiar with Osprey packs from my friends who climb and backpack and was hoping they had a standard backpack that could fit my computer and other stuff. Bingo! This pack is everything you need, it fits my 15 inch macbook and protects it, there are pockets and compartments for everything. The drink compartments on the side are adjustable to secure drinks. The bag is so comfortable and very well made and has an incredible life time warranty. I could not have conquered Spain if it wasn't for this pack. Don't be hesitant because it costs $90, this bag will last and it is worth it, just buy it.

I really like Osprey luggage because of the high clearance wheels and base and simple designs. I didn't like this bag. The inserts add a lot of weight-not sure I would actually use them. The opening of the bag is small, so visibility is limited and you can't store much in the flap (either inside or outside). There are no inside pockets. Rather expensive compared to similar Osprey bags.

This is a nice bag. Light-weight, high clearance wheels and base. I decided to return it, however, because it has less capacity than my old Osprey Vector bag.

This is a perfect little bag with all the right pockets and zippers. It is just what I was looking for and is very comfortable to wear. I especially love the Velcro pocket inside which I use for my daily calendar instead of a tablet/small laptop. I love this bag!

If you are under 5'3" or have a short torso (mine is ~16"), this is your backpack. I've been searching for a leisure travel bag (ie, not one to carry a bunch of heavy computer stuff). My requirements were basically that it fit, be comfortable to carry a "heavy" load (according to calculations, I only have 39lbs of muscle mass, so give me a break if I consider 15lbs "heavy"), carry 35-40L, work as a Euro airline carry-on, and open like a suitcase. Wants, as opposed to needs, were some small exterior pockets for bits, ideally some on the hip belt, lockable zippers and to get it in black. I tried: The REI Trail 40 pack for women - I ordered the small and it was still absurdly long on me and also only came in purple and grey/pink (can't be a woman's bag with no pink!) The Kelty Redwing 40 - this is supposed to fit a torso from 14.5"-18" but was too short on my no matter how I tried rearranging the straps. Additionally it felt cheaply made. I didn't have any confidence in the zippers and the pulls were not lockable. The Osprey Porter 30 - REI employee: "So the best part of today was taking off the pack? That's not good." Felt really heavy and did not conform to my back - too bad because I liked the layout for efficient packability. Tom Bihn's Aeronaut 30 - I just assumed this would be really comfortable because I (unfortunately) seem to be fit best by the most expensive option. This was the best bag for looks and layout. However, though I loved the bag itself, with the straps cinched all the way to fit my smaller frame, they dug into my neck, and the bag of course felt heavier than others with no weight-bearing hip belt. I ordered the Osprey Farpoint in the S/M size and it is a solid 8.5/10. It is comfortable at a realistic load, which is the most important thing, and it opens like a suitcase, which is the second most important thing for me. I doubt I will ever use the shoulder strap to carry it, but it's nice that the option is there, and even nicer that the shoulder straps can be zipped away in case the Euro airlines go even nuttier in the future with size restrictions, or if I went over the weight limit and needed to check it. Load lifters and an adjustable sternum strap help customize the fit. It's got lockable zippers (and in fact, if you have one of those locks with a short cable, one lock will secure the front and main sections) - and it comes in (almost) black! My complaints: - a LITTLE more interior organization wouldn't have gone awry, like an elastic pocket along the side walls or something - I hate that the laptop/tablet sleeve is in the front, though I can't see a better way to handle it - there is no way to attach anything else to the bag, unless you get creative with the shoulder strap attachment points. This is probably the biggest downside of the bag (and it's small, admittedly) but it would have been nice to be able to attach a yoga mat, or jacket, or pillow for those 15 hour flights. - there is only one pocket accessible when the exterior compression straps are in use, the sunglasses or whatever one at the very top of the bag. - small design thing, I really like when backpack makers have the little elastic on shoulder straps for you to tuck away any excess on the strap - this one doesn't have that. It's a small thing but with all the straps everywhere it does feel backpackery. - why isn't it just black? why is it this weird charcoal color? The gray straps just kind of give the impression that it's black that's been well-worn already and it kind of looks dirty at a glance, to me at least.

Perfect in almost every way. I would love to have a less casual look. But since it is what it is - I accept. I would recommend this as a great travel carry on bag. Everything organized.

This is a fantastic traveling pack. The larger portion does work as a carry on item. I have had no problems getting it in the overhead bins in any of the airlines. The daypack is truly a nice bonus. As a short female (5'2") it was quite heavy on my back all together. Going between gates in the airport, I would wear the larger one on my back and the smaller pack in front to distribute the weight more easily. The nice part is that the you can zip away the backpack straps on the larger portion if you decide to check in the bag. I was able to use this on a two week international trip and had a little room to spare for souvenirs. One recommendation I have for Osprey would be the addition of the side strap as seen on the smaller 45L version. There were times that it would have been extremely helpful.

I bought this bag to replace another to haul my dive gear around the country when I go on trips and it is superior to the old one. This bag has unbelievable storage capacity and it will hold a variety of sports gear and/or clothing. There are three generous outside pockets along with a large lockable pocket. I doubt I would use the unsecured pockets because I just don't trust TSA but if you are traveling by car, jeep, camel or whale (well, maybe not the whale), you can stuff those pockets full of things you would want handy. There are more mesh pockets inside, two on the side wall and two on the lid. The bag is very sturdy and has strong zippers. There are grab handles on all four sides and it isn't too wide for me to pick up, even when loaded. I am a female and that feature is important to me. It has large wheels that roll easy and it won't fall over, stands up tall and proud. It meets airline size limits too. I have the 22" and 28" Osprey Shuttle and I can tell you that they are outstanding bags. Check out the video for the features. If you've got a lot of stuff to haul, you won't be disappointed. I couldn't get three other retailers to ship this bag to the island I live on due to shipping costs but Zappos came through and fast with free shipping too. Thanks Zappos.

Great bag, very sturdy, and the perfect size for one or two night trips with a change of clothes, running shoes, and a laptop. It doesn't come with a separate shoulder strap, but you can clip one on if you prefer not to use the backpack feature so much (The straps are thing and the bottom is very plain, so it's not the most stylish backpack.)

Excellent quality and very comfortable. Being able to attach the day-pack to the front and the back of the bag makes transportation transfers very efficient. Tested in Northern Vietnam.

Perfect size backpack for a woman! I love that the sternum strap is adjustable to fit. Love the light green interior so you can see everything. The material seems sturdy and not too stiff. Has a small compartment in front for easy access to small items. Very happy with my purchase. Plus you can't beat the lifetime guarantee. I use this for work but can be used for a small day trip or school.

This smaller osprey pack is great! It was the perfect size for the Camino of Santiago for me as we did not need to carry food. Very comfortable and pretty. I loved using it every day! The 46 is great too, be aware that the frames are slightly different sizes, even if you pick the same size. So close that they are both extremely comfortable!

I've been using this pack for about 8 months now. It's fantastic. Currently I can fit my 13" MacBook Pro quite nicely in the laptop section, this section will likely fit a 15" MacBook as well as it's quite roomy. The way it sits on your body is very comfortable, and the straps are easily adjusted. There is a nice tubular side pocket that is nicely hidden and hardly noticeable; I use that to stash a small umbrella. This is quite a streamlined pack, it doesn't protrude out from the body too much at all, so you're not going to be able to take a ton of stuff, but I think that's the point. I've also been running with this pack (with my laptop in it) and it has proven sturdy and comfortable (given the load that's in it). Five stars, great pack!

This bag is excellent. I love the quality put into it. I almost never write reviews, but in this case I just felt the need to add my positive feedback. I would recommend this back to anyone looking for a high capacity carry on without a need for duffel or small suit case.

I bought this backpack for a 3 week trip to Italy. First the minuses - actually only one: the backpack is kinda heavy. With that aside, this is an impressive backpack. First of all, the quality is outstanding. Second, it's very roomy and easy to pack. I really like the detachable backpack - I put my carry-on items there, but when I'm walking around, I carry only one piece of luggage with me. By the way, the backpack is very comfortable to carry. Having said that, this is a backpack, so don't expect to carry the world in it. If you need to take 10 pairs of shoes with you, this is not for you. I took a pair of shoes, one pant, two shorts, T-shirts, underwear, socks and personal effects, and had no issue fitting them in the backpack with creativity (e.g. putting socks inside the shoes, etc.). I loathe traveling with too much stuff, so this backpack is perfect for me.

The photos and video do not show all that is the Flare. Just when I thought the perfect pack does not exist, I found this one! I must have at least 2 dozen packs, including TNF Recon and Kelty Red Wing - yet I'm always on the search for the perfect one. This one is my favorite for school and for weekend trips visiting friends and family. The larger section has a slot for my laptop, a separate iPad slot (which I put in file folders and papers) and a mesh zip pocket (can be seen on video). Plus lots of space for books and clothes. The smaller section has loads of pockets - 3 open pockets (mesh) at the top (middle pocket fits my iPhone 6 plus) and pockets across the bottom (pen slots and 2 or 3 other pockets, made of nylon). Also is a zip pocket halfway down where I put items I don't want people to see when I open my pack. I have the blue and the interior is bright yellow-green color - easy to find everything. Another smaller fleece lined pocket is in the front at the top - the typical sunglasses pocket. Front stash pocket is stretchy and strong as well as the two side water bottle slots. The organizations and size are absolutely perfect for school. For hiking/trail - I have about 5 other packs I use depending on the size of the load I'm carrying. But this one is my absolute favorite.

Attractive, high quality bag; just be aware, if you plan to stuff it with books and need it to open widely to put things in and out, you might be disappointed. The shape is streamlined which will make it flatter and less clunky for sure, but because it kind of telescopes a little on the bottom, it just doesn't expand for the books I need to carry. Would be perfect if you mainly carry a laptop and personal items plus maybe a couple of notebooks. Very pretty as well with great smaller pockets.
