Comments about OSPREY Waypoint 85 Travel Backpack:

I have flown twice with this bag. it holds up well. It has enough structure to back breakables (wine, packed well wit bubble wrap) but flexible enough to stuff in a car trunk with out room to fit a standard bag.

I packed a gallon of olive oil once and the olive oil can was dinged up pretty good, but the bag still looks brand new.

Backpack is nice, fits well. I would not take it on a hike, but its good for getting around town.

Plenty of side pockets and the daypack is nice.

It would be nice to have a camelpack in the daypack, but you can get one in there. The headphone hole will let you get the tube through and there is a pouch to put a water bag in. It helps to put a loop in to hang the water pouch from.

Comments about OSPREY Waypoint 85 Travel Backpack:

Let me start by saying that I am happy with this purchase. The pack performs in all of the areas that it should; I just have a few minor problems.

For starters the 80L volume might be true but it is WAY too big to fit into the 80L Pacsafe net. I had to exchange for the 120L Pacsafe to fit around the whole thing when fully loaded with the daypack attached.

Second is that there are four straps to hold on the daypack with that seem largely superfluous and just get in the way with the Pacsafe net and any luggage conveyor belts the pack is going to travel on. The ice-ace loops are cute but really unnecessary because this is hardly the pack for the backcountry. The Sleeping mat straps are nice also and I may get some use out of them but it would be great if there was a way to tuck them away when not in use. Same goes for the daypack straps, you need to stuff them up behind the daypack but the waist strap works itself lose easily.

The four straps that hold on the day pack make it REALLY inconvenient to get into it when you have the whole kit together, however they do provide an added level of tamper protection because you are unable to lock the daypack to the main pack which is a pity. Also the daypack itself is not lockable which I see as a huge oversight. You also need to undo all four of the compression straps to access the main compartment of the main pack which gets old fast.
