We found some brilliant bargains buys from Amazon, Decathlon, Regatta and more
One hiking day pack is making waves on social media as travellers and influencers alike discover the packing power of one particular Osprey backpack.
The Osprey Farpoint 40 is pricey at £150, but it has been carefully crafted to offer a roomy interior with lots of clever extra pockets and webbing to keep your gear well-organised on the go. The experts at Osprey haven’t stopped there either, while the the Farpoint 40 is perfect for men on a mission, the Fairview 40 is a women’s specific version, designed to perfectly fit the female form.
Whether you are following a TikTokker on their favourite hiking trails, hostel hopping across your next adventure, taking a quick weekend away from home or just need an efficient backpack for your daily commute, both the Farpoint and the Fairview are going viral for good reason.

Both bags are made from strong and durable ripstop nylon and are both carry-on compatible for most UK airlines including British Airways, Jet2 and TUI.
They both feature lockable compartments to keep valuable items safe in transit and the lightweight frame design ensures that both backpacks remain stable even when full.
For added comfort and convenience, the straps on the Fairview are set lower on the back, helping the bag to sit higher to distribute the weight to fall across the hips. The well-padded shoulder straps also offer more curves on the body, making it a more comfortable fit for smaller frames.
Other than that, both versions come in a selection of different colourways and cost £150 from Osprey.
The good people of TikTok continue to be enamoured by the Osprey Farpoint/Fairview offerings with one user called lastadventurer describing it as “the best carry-on for Eurotrips” while fellow TikTokker and globetrotter Kara said, “I have been using these for years and highly recommend them.”
For backpack lovers looking for something a little gentler on the wallet, there are some great alternatives out there that offer at least 40 litres of packing power for less.
