The Fairview is Osprey’s new travel backpack designed specifically for women, and considering we’ve already spent over a year and a half testing out the Osprey Farpoint, we were really excited to get our hands on this one! There are a lot of similarities between the Farpoint and Fairview, and a lot of stuff mentioned here echoes what we said in our full review of the Farpoint. However, this is a women’s specific travel pack and a standalone product in its own right, so it deserves it’s own fully comprehensive review.
The Osprey Fairview comes in three different capacities, a 40L, 55L and 70L. We are testing the 40L version, which is the only one that fits within carry-on specifications—AKA, the best way to travel. The Fairview is only available in one Small/Medium size, which is fine for anyone under 6 feet. If you are over 6 feet, it’s possible the Farpoint may be a better fit for you as it comes in a Medium/Large size.
Ever since the Fairview came out, Osprey now refer to the Farpoint as the ‘men’s version’ (interesting as it was marketed towards men and women at the time). We’re really intrigued to see just how different it can be now that it’s actually designed specifically for a woman.
To put it bluntly, the Fairview 40 is not the most chic, fashionable bag around, but that’s why it’s sold as a travel backpack and not a fashion statement. This has some great advantages though—you’ll feel fine laying this thing down on the floor, with no need to worry about scuffs and dirt. This is not a bag you have to feel precious about, it’s built for travel and we love that.
The Osprey Fairview is still everything we like about the Farpoint—great for one bag travel, neat hideaway strap system and available worldwide—just designed specifically for women. They knew they had the right formula, so with a few small adjustments in the hip belt and shoulder straps they’ve created a bag that’s a great, comfortable carry for women.
