xLuCasanovax says:

What’s the blue bag Alex is wearing at the beginning of the video?

MarcoandFrancine says:

Thanks for the tips, this was actually a very useful video! I need to pick me up a good travel backpack as I head into more travels this year!

a Girl with A backpack says:

these tips are soooo helpful! just ordered one for meself on amazon, thanks guys!

Serah says:

Do you recommend checking your backpack?

Harley Trudeau says:

What’s the blue backpack you are using in the video shots in the airports and such?

amartide says:

Two points: First I totally agree with your recommodation (???) of the Osprey. I spend in Jan-Feb 2017 several weeks in searching for the best backpack for me and at the Osprey are one million little things, which are more stable, practical, usable even dirty and so on than the other backpacks.

Second. You choose the thin, lightweight Ospry Farpoint. I decided for the heavier, more stable, more backpack Ospry porter 46. But that was for ME the correct decision, because I have to carry roundabout 25 kilo. The porter stays in form, has a big waist band and a stable back. (But if you want an additional daypack, you have to spend additional money. The Porter and Farpoint daypack are the same and can be connected to both.)

My go to pack is the Kelty in 32L. It may be smaller but with a few packing cubes i was able to spend a few months in Europe in the dead of winter with room to spare. The top and side pockets are really quite large so you can fit things like a smaller Nalgene or sleeping pad if you so choose. External compression straps are nice too when you visit the nieces and nephew for Christmas and they send you off with extra presents =)

Andrea Perea says:

Thank you guys so much for sharing! I am looking for a good travel backpack and so far thinking of getting the osprey one for my next big adventure ☺ what size would you recommend if I were to travel for a 6 months to a yr?

Light & Rebellion says:

Normally I roll my eyes when people tell me to subscribe, but you guys are awesome so I actually did for once. Gonna do some travelling in a couple of months so this will definitely help. Thank you!

Manuel Cantu says:

Great Information Guys. Keep up the good work. Love Your Channel!

amartide says:

What I have seen on the Philippines:
Poor guys with the rectangula suitcase style backpacks with alibi stripes. Moving around in the airport, directly entering a taxi and stopping at the hotel was so lala. Not really bad, but heavy and not nice. But Philippines island hopping, leaving the boat on a shakey gangway and then walking in the hot sun just a few hundred meters to the hotel was terrible with the small carrying stripes. But it was no problem with a backpack, which was made for six weeks in the jungle.

Robert Jumper bobbobrebob says:

Hi guys. I love your work. Would you guy recommend a good wheeled travel backpack?

Michael Somebody says:

Definitely helpful guys, you really worth to watch.

SoCalDaveL says:

Osprey makes GREAT gear. I’ve seen the Farpoint 55 and LOVE the concept of the backpack with stowaway shoulder/waist straps and the daypack. BUT isn’t it too big for carryon? The Farpoint 40 appears to be the perfect bag at the perfect size but without the daypack. What a dilemna. Is there a worthy daypack that can compliment the Farpoint 40? (small enough to store away inside, yet able to pack a laptop when out away from hotel/hostel/etc?)

kostas kosta says:

what is your opinion about north face backpacks? 55 litres?

Matt Schnitzler says:

Literarlly just got my Patagonia MLC Black Hole in the mail today. I can’t wait to use it, and it really seems like a great bag for both my business travel and somewhat extended trips to Europe, asia, etc.

Bryant Bardock says:

I want honest opinions!
If I want to stay on Barcelona more than 9 months and go to Peru, the backpack Osprey Atmos 65 AG is really necessary ? Or is something very op and fancy for those places?

Tara Tori says:

will the osprey far point fit 55 L fit for carry on??

Bite With Beat says:

great one ……………………..

Ciro Marquardt says:

Would be interesting to see how you guys pack the Satori for a trip, including the camera gear. And did you ever had problems bringing a tripod with you as a carry-on?

vemuganti satvik says:

Can anyone tell me how do these guys afford these trips if they dont work? Please

David Ricardo says:

Love the video. Great content 🙂

Karl Andersson says:

Hey Guys! Love your channel. Thx for all great stuff. Have been checking out she Osprey farpoint 55 for a while since I saw it in this video. although when I google it seems to be too long for carry on. Most airlines says max length is 55 cm and the farpoint is 65 cm. Have you ever experienced problem with this?

Mel Minimalist says:

I use the Tom Bihn synapse 25, I had previously used the osprey porter 30. The synapse 25 is a huge improvement.

NefertitiArtakmar Nebetia says:

Omg you went to Cardiff 00:26

pattons3rd says:

Though its designed more so for outdoor backpacking than travelling, the Osprey Aether with AG(anti-gravity) is the most comfy backpack ever….just my opinion of course.

18MRpsi says:

guys. need to check out the Kathmandu wayfarer 55L! thing is a beast! and should clear most if not all carry on requirements
