This backpack has a 44 leader capacity features 11 different pockets. Even though the backpack itself may be complex the outer appearance gives a very sleek and organized look.

With a high-strength nylon shell, it offers good protection against the various elements you will face when you are traveling. Even though it is tough and gives the feeling of a decent thickness it is still lightweight and will not add any extra fatigue of the wearer.

One of the Interesting features this bag has is a side handle in the form of a typical duffel bag handle that is located on the left side which allows for the easy carrying with one hand. You will appreciate it in situations such as airports train stations and other places when having it on your back would not be convenient.

Lockable Zippers:

Having lockable zippers is a very easy way to maintain light security for your belongings when traveling.

Osprey Farpoint 40, the cheap and functional Backpack for Digital Nomads

Osprey Farpoint 40, the cheap and functional Backpack for Digital Nomads

The ideal Backpack for Digital Nomads?

Well, definitely not but it´s a start, and for around 100 Bucks it´s pretty cheap too. I´ve been using the Osprey Farpoint 40 as my Digital Nomad Backpack for over 4 years now and I know it´s flaws and it´s benefits.

  • First of all: It´s cheap
  • Second: It has a lot of space and you don´t have to check it in, you can use it as a carry-on backpack – ideal for digital nomads.
  • Third: Again: it´s cheap

 

You can get your stuff organized pretty good, but you´ll need packing cubes and do a lot of thinking. The pockets upfront are useless, and the laptop compartment in the front section is just not working for me. A laptop, even if you use the lightest has at least 1kg, so why put it up front – I don´t get it guys, you make backpacks for centuries but that didn´t come to your mind?

The back compartment of the Osprey Farpoint 40 is just great!

But anyway, I almost have any stuff in the back compartment – clothes, hygiene, tech-stuff… the front compartment is just for documents and random pickups…

What I love about the Osprey Farpoint 40 is that I can get another daypack in the back of the backpack – there where you can zip down your backpack into a normal bag. I just love that feature, which gives me the freedom to put another backpack (the 22L Salewa) which I (rarely) use for trekking into the Farpoint.

What else to say about it? Well, it´s a little heavy, but compared to the other “Digital Nomad” Backpacks out there costing 200 or more bucks it´s in the same weight class… I searched a lot and could not find any other lighter and at least same-prized bag.

What makes no sense about the Osprey Farpoint 40

What makes absolutely no sense are the two front pockets. I tried and tried again putting stuff in it – but terribly failed. I recently saw people putting their flip-flops in them, that might work but water bottles keep falling out of mine so I just don´t use those two pockets at all. As previously stated, the front pockets do not feel right to me either – I may will to others just not for me.

All in all, I would say it´s a pretty decent backpack for digital nomads, remote workers or backpackers, a little heavy with some unnecessary features but it´s cheap and you get used to its givens when you use it on a regular basis.

I recommend the Osprey Farpoint 40 for all Digital Nomads on a budget who are no perfectionists
